      We told you we went all out. We wanted to put together something that will help to inform you on Grip Training, but also something that you could easily implement with your athletes.

      Check out a run-down of all you will soon be able to put into action...

      Chapter 1: Basics of Grip Strength

      In this section, we define the terms used in Grip Training and give some quick examples of each form of training.

      Chapter 2: Crushing Grip

      In this section, we focus on Crush, the dynamic form of finger training, where the fingers are drawn in toward the palm, as in making a fist.

      We cover the basic of using grippers, as well as more advanced techniques to forge a stronger grip.

      We also show you how you can use other tools found in your gym to strengthen the hands for a crushing grip,

      Chapter 3: Support Grip

      It this section, we look at static finger strength, also known as Support grip.

      We show you ways you can build extreme hand strength in your gym using dumbbells, kettlebells, and barbells.

      We know that you are often training with many athletes at the same time, so we show you how you can do this efficiently with small groups.

      We also show you how you can use the team atmosphere to make the training sessions more exciting, competitive, and rewarding.

      Chapter 4: Open Hand Strength


       

      Open Hand Training is the most valuable form of Grip Training, because it forces the entire hand to work together.

      We will show you common Thick Bar Training tools that will build stronger hands and put muscle on your forearms.

      This is also where we get into Pinch Grip Training - we will show you how to train the thumbs to make them stronger and resist injury.

      We also cover several hybrid-style drills that combine facets of all grip disciplines for even more benefit and cross-over to your throws training.

      Chapter 5: Wrist and Forearm Strength

      You must not leave out the Wrists and Forearms in the Grip Training routine. They must be trained intensely in order to withstand the stresses of throwing and all the rigors of the long season.

      In this section, we look at ways to target the wrists and forearms specifically using equipment you already have at your gym.

      We also show you how to train your wrists and forearms using leverage devices that will build strength in all the directions the wrist and forearms move.

      Chapter 6: Common Throwing Injuries and Prevention

      In this section, Matt discusses the most common injuries that are being seen with throwers these days, as well as the ways they can be prevented.

      Matt also talks about how strengthening the lower arms can reduce the chance for injury at the elbow, high forearm, wrist and hands.

      Chapter 7: Grip Isolation vs. Integration

      When training the Grip, there are two ways to go about it: all by itself, and as part of full-body lifts. In this section, we cover the difference and when to use each.

      Also, we cover several High Impact ways you can begin training your grip while also training other parts of your body for an even bigger BANG for your time spent in the gym.

      Chapter 8: Home Made Equipment

      We know that for many coaches, the budgets are limited, so buying several hundred dollars worth of equipment is out of the equation.

      With that in mind, Matt and I cover over a dozen pieces of grip training gear you can easily make by yourself or with a little help from friends

      We know there's a chance your team has the smallest budget in the school, but the largest number of kids. For that reason, we added this section JUST FOR YOU.

      Chapter 9: Implementation

      At this point, you know that in order to keep your throwers performing at a high level and to keep hand, wrist and elbow injuries away, you MUST start implementing Grip Training.

      But the question still remains: How do You Do That?

      In this section we cover the best ways to begin working Grip Training into your routines without disrupting the rest of your training plan or adding a bunch of extra time to your workouts.

      Dear Fellow Strength-Junkie,

      Have you ever shaken someone's hand and been scared - really scared - that your hand was about to be crushed and permanently disfigured forever?

      And deep inside, didn't you secretly wish you had that kind of bone-crushing hand power?

      Well now you can.

      I'm going to show you how you can develop hands so powerful that you'll feel like the creator and destroyer of worlds.

      How can I make such a bold claim?

      Because I'm Jedd Johnson, Grip Athlete, previous World Record Holder in the Two Hand Pinch Lift, and an IronMind Certified Red Nail Bender and I am personally going to show you how to bend a Grade 5 bolt in 30 days or less.

      And here's how - it's easy once I show you my super-secret shortcuts.

      And why would I share this valuable information - this goldmine that I've accumulated over the last 10 years?

      Because I'm sick and freakin' tired of all the crap out there that "so-called experts" are passing off as "grip-strength" material. Hell, I've seen better material in toy stores shopping for my kids!

      I went out into my garage "where the magic happens" and pulled out all the stops and shot over 4 hours of bending madness and cut it down to only the most important, most relevant, most cutting-edge information and wrapped it up into 90 minutes of pure content.

      I want to ask you a few questions and I want you to be honest…

      • Do you ever have trouble holding onto the bar for pull-ups?
      • Do you ever find it hard to finish a set because your hands give out?
      • Do you feel like you could put on more muscle if your hands were just a little stronger?
      • Do you find your hands are the first to go when you are performing longer sets in your training?
      • Does it feel like your numbers in the gym suffer because of your weak hand strength?
      • Have you been told that your hand shake is like holding a dead fishf??
