Here, you will find a few important things that you should know as you spend time navigating around this website. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the information found on this page.
As you have probably guessed by now, I’ve got a pretty varied interest in training. I’m not going to say that I have “done it all” but I have certainly done many different kinds of training … thick bars … 20-rep squats … power rack work … heavy supports …. barrel lifting …. sand bag training …. sledge hammers … you know, the stuff that can make you strong as a bear… but also probably get you kicked out of most gyms (or, at the least, plenty of funny looks).
One of my great interests is in hand strength — which you also probably guessed by now, since that is the topic that this entire website is devoted to. I closed the famed Iron Mind #3 gripper since I was 15 years old, so I know a thing or two about developing hand strength.
When it comes to getting strong, hand strength is pretty important — you can’t lift a weight unless you can hold onto it — yet the fact of the matter os that specific hand and grip strength exercises are downplayed or even ignored in many programs — set of half-hearted wrist curls every now and then just aint going to get the job done
I think that’s a real shame, especially considering just how much strength potential there is in the grip and forearm muscles… but you have to know how to do it right which is where I come in.
Yes, I said “daily” — as in every day — and sometimes more than once a day. I’ve got a lot of interesting things to share: workouts … training tips … things I’m working on in my own training … mistakes I’ve made (and hopefully how I corrected them and learned something from making them) … readers’ questions … equipment questions and suggestions … new product announcements… as you can see, there are many important things to cover, much more than we could do by emailing once or twice a month. If you are passionate about something, then it makes sense to learn all you can about it so I believe all the information that I am going to send your way is a good thing.
One of the most important factors in training success is consistency and reading something about training each day goes a long way in keeping you on track.
Yes, I do mention and promote my hand and grip strength products in these emails. If there is a strength tool or training guide that will help you get to you want to go, I would be remiss if I didn’t make you aware of it. You certainly don’t have to purchase anything from me to stick around, but I believe that our products have a lot to offer so I have no problem with shouting their merits far and wide, do you may at least want to have a look … and though it breaks my cold, dead heart, if you would like to unsubscribe from our e-mail list at any time, there is an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of every one of my daily e-mails.
This would also be a good time to mention that every page of our website is secure, and your information is never shared with anyone for any reason in case you might be wondering.
What about training questions? My in-box is filled with them each day. It would be impossible for me to answer them all, so in order to help the greatest number of people, those are covered through my daily emails. You’ll also want to check out my training blog.
Whew! that should about cover it — at least for now. Look for a cool grip workout from me in your mailbox tomorrow.
