I got my Vice Gripper around the 18th of March and it really couldn't have come at a better time. This was right around the time that I was backsliding so badly with the grippers that I failed to close my Easy #3 on of the days I tried it. Which hasn't happened since 2005. The main problem was the volume I was doing with the DU and Reverse bending at the time, not that I had actually lost all that strength. But I just wasn't able to recover from the volume workouts and was feeling the effects on the grippers. And I didn't want to get to the point where closing a #3 was something that only happened on a good day. I worked way too hard for that to ever happen again.

I'll start by saying the Vice Gripper is one of the best grip tools I've ever bought! At any price. It is probably worth double what the asking price is...so how Philthy does it I don't know. But it's a great deal and so adjustable that there's absolutely no reason not to make progress with it.

Within minutes I had gotten used to the smooth knurling. I also layered chalk on the handles and my hands which is the SOP for me with grippers. TNS closes feel very comfortable for singles and reps. I've started using a few 20 rep sets for my easy warmups and it's working well. The side effect is that my forearms are getting more muscular without actually focusing on it.

Here's a quick note that should be of GREAT interest to all the DU benders on the board: I don't think it's a coincidence that as I've increased the volume with the Vice Gripper that my DU bending (especially the short Grade 5s) has just shot through the roof. Soon after starting my training with the Vice Gripper, on the 24th, I DU bent my first 5" Grade 5.

Upped the volume and intensity some more and then 5 short days later melted my first 4.5" Grade 5 DU. Again, I don't think there is any coincidence to it. I credit the VG with increasing my ring and pinkie strength, which has carryover to holding on to super short DU bends.

A few days ago midway through a VG workout, I tested myself on my Easy Elite and MMS closed it for a solid single. That means even with the increased bending and now VG volume the VG is helping with my recovery. And that's priceless at my level.

I have put my grippers away for a while. To be honest I could sell them all right now and not bat an eye. The Vice Gripper is that good! MMS work can be done with it too although I choose not to for now. If I find that my MMS strength is WAY off near the contest, I will add some MMS closes with the VG to cover my bases. Until then I'll just train exclusively with it TNS and see where that leads me.

Another point of interest to any KTA guys or anyone wanting a superb method of progressively training their thumb strength, without having to carry around weight plates for pinching: The VG is perfect for training the thumb. Detach one of the springs and put the remaining spring on the easiest setting. Turn the VG on its side and "pinch" the handles together. Sounds more difficult than it really is when you're doing it. I took a video of it and sent it to Philthy. I could also upload it if anyone wanted to view it. Point is that it's faultless for dynamically training the thumb. And super adjustable. And beats the hell out of pinching one of those clamps.

I am so impressed with the Vice Gripper that I sent Phil an e-mail telling him how impressed I was. And also mentioned that I had created a series of training programs for the VG. Program #1 focuses on increasing forearm size. Program #2 focuses on increasing your Vice Gripper closing strength. Program #3 focuses on increasing your thumb strength. All the programs can be cycled and/or used on their own. I will recommend that the thumb strength program not be done alone, but added on to one of the other programs for best effect.

I hope I'm not jumping the gun by announcing it here, but Phil has generously agreed to market my Vice Gripper training programs alongside the VG itself. They will be sold together and also separately on his Hammar Sports website.

So guys, if you're looking for an extraordinary plateau buster, look no further than the Vice Gripper. If you're like me, you'll originally buy one to help you on the grippers. Then you'll soon come to the conclusion that it's BETTER than the grippers. Soon after you'll "temporarily" retire your grippers to another room of the house. "Only for a little while" you'll hear yourself saying...maybe once every few months you'll dust them off and smash them a few times, but most of the time you'll probably spend training with the best adjustable gripper on the planet. The Vice Gripper.
