Grip strength is often a forgotten aspect of strength and conditioning…but for fighters and grapplers, it is essential. A strong grip can translate to stronger punches, less hand and wrist injury, better wrist control, finishing submissions and more. In the following video, I review the new Gripedo, grip strengthener, that I received last week. Its a unique grip training handle that replicates some of the movements used by plumbers and mechanics…and these guys have some of the strongest grips in the business.
- Simple and Easy to Use
