The gold standard for building and testing grip strength

If it ain't broke don't fix it. CoC's were used by the strength fiends and strongmen of old.  The difference between a weak and a strong grip is the difference in reps, seconds, kilos, and speed. Nearly every measure of performance is affected by your ability to lock on, hold on, and maintain your strength.

What's special about Captains of Crush Grippers?

  • Perfect fit with CoC compatible grip tools for maximum progress in minimum time
  • Knurled aircraft-grade aluminum handles, pioneered by CoC Grippers in 1995
  • Proprietary GR8 springs, only on CoC Grippers and IMTUGs
  • 20-year history of product development and refinement

Captains of Crush Grippers: Maximum grip strength, minimum time.

Forget about the traditional approach to training with grippers - banging out endless reps while driving or watching TV - as it will do little to improve your grip strength but a lot to shorten the life of your gripper.

Captains of Crush Grippers is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products The stretch bands are a great idea and are well made as are the grippers. Certainly a challenge but that's what I bought them for. If you buy only one book on hand strength buy the one titled "Mastery of Hand Strength" by John Brookfield. In my opinion after buying the other three I found in English on the subject, it is by far the best written, to the point and most thought out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised!!! I am a maintenance technician by trade so I am constantly wrenching with my hands along with working out at home. I bought the whole set thinking I had a pretty strong grip and my wife wanted to try them as well. As much as I hate to admit it, the #1 is a workout for me starting out, but I plan on fixing that. I do not regret buying the whole set. Quality!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid quality Bought it last month cause I saw most ppl in gyms can't close it. Challenge accepted. Tore into it and closed it. It is a challenge being that I can only close it about 5 times. Not a big guy but once I can get my hand around it I can close it. Definetly will buy more. Want a killer grip, been closing it and holding it for long as possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought the No. 1 with a few doubts. I never trained my grip before, and it says most weight lifters can't close it. When it arrived, I tore the package open like a kid on Christmas. I was surprised that I was actually able to close it. I can only do reps of 5-7, but, man, is it a challenge. Around rep 4, I start to make some of the ugliest faces known to mankind lol. Well built and fits great in my hands. Definitely can't wait to move up in numbers. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Choose Wisely I just opened the trainer, 1, and 2. They are nice quality grippers and I am happy with the craftsmanship. My goal of this review is to inform buyers of the actual difficulty and the utility of the grippers I purchased to help them make an informed buying decision and probably save some cash. Trainer- The trainer seems easy to close way nicer quality than a sporting good gripper but, there many other ways to train your grip up to the number 1 eliminating the need for this gripper. Number 1- I thought that I was going to be humbled by the number 1 because, the description says that most people who workout cannot close the CoC #1. I don't ever train my grip I was slightly challenged to close the number 1 20 times in a row. I feel like the number 1 will have the right resistance to get a good workout in but I am sure I will quickly surpass it. If you can't start with this gripper you probably haven't been working on getting strong enough to even start thinking about grip strength. If you have been working out and can't close this there are other means of getting you grip strong enough to close the number 1 than blowing 2 bucks on the trainer. Number 1.5- First off, I did not actually purchase or use the 1.5 but, judging off of the difficulty of the #1 and the #2 I do not think that 1.5 intermediary gripper is necessary. The jump in pounds from the trainer to the 1 is 40 pounds from the 1 to the 2 is 45 pound. work on closing the #1 20 times than you don't need the 1.5 you can start working on the number 2 and use the 1 for volume. Number 2- Number 2 seems more challenging although not as hard as I thought it was going to be. I am an 1/8 to a quarter of an inch from closing the number 2 and I am sure with a week of training I will easily conquer it. This is what I had imagined the number 1 would be like. The King Kong set- I also did not buy the King Kong set but, I will tell you it is not a very economical option. If you want to be decked out with nice grippers that both your grammy and grizzly bear can close and be challenged by and you have the money to blow then by all means buy the set. If you are like me and don't want to spend money on grippers you don't need then do not buy the whole set. If you take off the guide, sport, trainer, and #1.5 off of the list of gripper to have (what I would suggest) you would only pay 160 for the rest of the set buying them individually. My suggested buying method- Start with the 1, 2, and 2.5 and get the 3 ships free deal. If you can't close the #1 you should buy starting strength learn how to lift, stop doing x-fit for three to six, maybe even twelve months and build a base level of strength. If your grip is still too weak to close the number 1, do some specific grip work until able to start with the # 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I learned my true grip strength Ordered the trainer thinking it would help build my grip strength. I quickly discovered i have no grip strength. I can get 7 reps for three sets, then struggle with the ability to hold a cup of water or competently use keys. I ordered the one for senior citizens to start using for a warm up because these are no joke. I'm hoping to eventually work up to the number one in a year or so. Definately recommend if you want a serious grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beginner set perfect Smaller guy, grip strength has never been my forte. Got the beginner set and it's perfect: easy warm-up, manageable challenge, and aspiration. Definitely recommend getting a few at once for the savings and ease of programming
