So after thinking about it for a couple days, this morning at work I finally made a wrist roller to work on my grip strength. I have a tube that is 15" long and 3.25" in diameter for the handle, and a 7lb can of paint attached by twine. It turned out better than I expected, so now I will have another piece of equipment to use during slow periods at work.
Having never done these before, I have no idea what type of range I should be looking to achieve each day. Above I have given most of the needed info about the equipment, as for myself I am 6' and 179lbs. when doing the rolls I am holding the handle at about eye level.
I have what I would consider "decent grip" and good GPP. I am also trying to keep an equal number of times rolling the weight up in both directions. My current plan is basically just to do one or two every time I am by them or don't have anything else to do, which should equal out to a pretty decent number throughout the day.
I have also thought about just doing as many in a row as I could until failure at one point in the day, but am not sure what the difference would be, if there is any at all.
I am hoping someone with more experience on this subject can tell me what a good total number rolls/sets I should be trying to achieve for the first couple of weeks. Any input appreciated.
