Grip strength.

    Hi, I’m new to weight lifting.

    A few months ago I purchased a pair of York Extra Strong Grippers from Exercise Australia. A few months later, I feel that these grippers are doing nothing for me. I’ve gotten stronger and or these grippers have weakened over that time.

    I went in search for new grippers and found these grippers http://www.myopure.com.au/heavy-grip-grippers.html

    My problem is that when I purchased the York grippers, the packaging didn’t say how much force is required to close them, and Exercise Australia don’t know either. All I know is that they’re the strongest grippers Exercise Australia supplies. (These ones: http://www.exerciseaustralia.com/jsp/c_catalogItem.jsp?prodID=241)

    Because I have no idea how much force is required to close them, I have no idea how strong my grip is, and so I have no idea what grippers to purchase.

    Anyone have any advice or know where to get a dynamometer.

    Almost impossible to answer that one.

    However, if you want to take a guess at the heavy grips and they’re not right you can return exchange them. Keep in mind that this would still cost you postage both ways.

    Some gyms and or PT’s have these test devices to use when they screen newcomers. Ask around at a few local gyms.
