I just got by #150 gripper in the mail. I somehow thought 150 lbs was hard and that I would have to work up to closing it after months of hard work. haha… I closed it 50+ times.
I feel stupid as hell.
What gripper should I have bought?
I dont even know how anyone could tell me this…
suitcase deadlift 185, 3 times
curl -ez bar 135, 5 times
What brand is it? Your grip must be way ahead of your lifts if it was in fact a 150 lbs, the #1 CoC from ironmind is rated at 140 lbs and no one I give mine to can close it first time trying it. the #2 is rated at 195 lbs and I find a big difference between the two. I recently got the CoC 3# and am miles from closing it, it’s rated at 280…give that one a try and report back.
He probably bought a different brand.
My friend has a 200 lb gripper from a different brand and it is easier than my COC #1.
It’s possible though that the OP just naturally has a very strong grip. My gym lifts are weaker than his, yet I was able to do 5 reps with my COC #1 straight out of the package.
