We bought five of the best grip strengtheners and tested them on hands of all sizes. The IronMind Captains of Crush Hand Gripper is our favorite thanks to its efficacy and superior build quality.
Dinging accessibility even further, testers with especially small hands found the Gripper less usable. Most managed well enough, but the petite-fingered were forced to slide their hands up the handles, decreasing leverage and comfort.
The Pro is not without its flaws. We found the palm-rest shape to be slightly less secure and comfortable than the regular Gripmaster, thanks to the lack of a thumb-side tab. The larger range of motion was less friendly for testers with small hands, some of whom found the device too wide to be ergonomic.
To make matters worse, the inner aluminum arm is coated in a grease-like lubricant. That makes adjustment easy, but it also means that your table (not to mention your hands) are likely to get some secondhand grease.
Spring-based strengtheners have handles separated by a hinge and bound by a spring. The tension and length of the spring dictate the difficulty of the squeeze. The Luxon strengthener is an example of a spring-based strengthener.
To double-check my impressions, I handed the devices over to a few friends with hand shapes of varying sizes. They all put in brief workouts with each device to see how ergonomics and efficiency held up across different hand sizes and shapes.
Durasoft Polymer is unlike any other synthetic rubber. The polymer-based formula is a unique combination of excellent gripping properties and a softness that can only be appreciated by touch. The grip texture varies to accommodate different touch-points of the fingers and hands.
Tube and flat end grips provide an ergonomic fit to everyday tools and equipment by reducing hand fatigue and the transfer of vibrations. Our assortment of plastic and foam grips are flexible enough to stretch onto slightly larger dimensions without shredding or tearing, yet durable enough to withstand the duress of demanding industrial applications.
IronMind Captains of Crush Hand Gripper has two handles connected by a resistance coil. There are eleven different weight options that range from 60lb to 365lb and each is made of billet aluminium and alloy steel.
The IMTUG is conveniently sized so you can slip it into your pocket and take it on the go. The gripper itself is made from airplane-grade aluminum with ergonomically designed handles and patented GR8 springs to last squeeze after squeeze. The different levels allow you to train not only your index and middle fingers, but your ring and pinky fingers with the lower-difficulty grippers.
The GD Iron Grip EXT 90 Hand Strengthener is an A-frame design that uses a solid steel compression spring to resist from 55 to 198 pounds when squeezing the two handles together. The range of motion is over a full inch and the handles are knurled similar to a barbell.

Grip strength: The main reason most people use hand grippers is for the increased grip strength. There are 3 types of grip, crush, support and pinch, hand grippers mainly develop crush grip whilst also increasing support grip.
Hand grippers work by engaging the muscles in the forearm, just by squeezing your hand together you can feel how the forearm engages. Adding some resistance to this motion is the best way to develop strength.
Notably our Elite Series hand grippers, with the slightly thicker handles are amazing for developing some series forearm muscle. Working on a higher rep range will burn out the forearms and work on really packing on the muscle.
This is a question we get asked on a regular basis, so we created a chart of our hand grippers to show the exact progression levels and a recommended entry point depending on your current level of strength. It can be hard to gauge your current level of grip strength so we would recommend purchasing a set.
Hand grippers are really easy to use. With the spring at the top, you should place one leg of the hand gripper in the palm of your hand and wrap your fingers around the other leg of the hand gripper.
Then you simply squeeze as hard as you can until the legs touch, that is one repetition. If you place your other hand on your forearm you will notice the muscles instantly engage. If you're specifically looking to increase forearm muscle check out this post.
Grip comes from the muscles in your forearms. Hand grips help build your forearm flexors (they control the closing of your hand) and forearm extensor (they control the opening of your hands). 59ce067264
