Okay, I know I'm going to take a boatload of shit for even admitting I use these but hey, I can take it. I use these during my forearm work.

Last night I broke this. This pair was a gift from my parants when I first started working out 40 years ago :eek:. If I recall, it come with one of those 2 handed spring things that if you got it too close to your chest would take a nipple off.

Anyway, anyone ever see one of these break? That's a first for me!

I use a regularly set of grips from Iron Mind and my forearms/extensors have never been bigger.

Deadlifts was why I first started doing them. My legs and back could outlift my grip, and that ain't right. And I tried to only use straps when doing PRs so I wouldn't get used to the crutch. But this spring and summer I've been working my forearms for growth and they are responding.

I have one sitting on my desk right now, it's from when I was a kid also, guess I am not as strong as you to break one you beast!

Yep, add me in for another Iron Mind CoC gripper fan. I've had mine for years and they've only developed a minor squeak but that's just the nature of metal on metal.

I'm not sure what weight these were but I was doing 80 reps with them. Maybe I need to get a heavier set.
