Thumbless Gripper Closes


I have been trying many new things my gripper training recently, trying to spur some gains. Here is a short run down of things I have been trying:

Gripper drop sets - I make an attempt at a goal gripper and then immediately do a hold for time with a much lighter one.

Continuous handle cutting - I cut a gripper handle for beyond-the-range closes and every time I close it I shave more off.

Thumbless gripper closes - I attempt to close the gripper without assistance from my thumb.

I have never heard anyone speak about this type of close before, so I thought I would make a video to illustrate the concept.

I utilize my thumbs a great deal with gripper closes. I think this technique is going to help me out because my fingers are forced to put in the extra work.

Incidentally, all three of these techniques make me feel it big time in my last two fingers. I also encourage everyone to try the drop sets - they give you a huge forearm pump!

All the best in your training,
