So I've been doing more looking into grip training and strongman type stuff. I just got both (beginner and advanced) sets of GNC's grippers. I pretty certain they're no CoCs, but I'm JUST starting and I couldn't beat the price ($40 for six grippers, 50-300lbs in 50lb increments). I don't have much trouble setting these, but to my understanding the CoC handles are bigger in diameter. I wonder if I'd have trouble setting those when I finally get them.
I have a few questions for the wiser.
1) How big are your hands? Mine are just under 8 inches from my wrist to the tip of my middle finger. Palm is about 4 inches across. Ring size is 8.
2) How much has hand size helped you/held you back in grip strength and strongman?
3) I know there isn't much one can do to make your hands longer or wider, but will they get thicker as hand/grip strength increases? Fingers get any bigger too?
Also, address anything you feel is relevant. Don't limit your answer to just my questions. Maybe we can get a good discussion going.
