Grip training doesn’t have to be boring. These nasty steel bars will make sure of that! Work your way up the 5″ progression below. The bars are rated by the poundage of force required to bend them, with the actual specs in parentheses next to it. The lower the poundage, the easier the bend.
140 LBS OF FORCE TO BEND (3/16″ x 5″)

This length of steel is just plain tough. Want to build scary-strong wrists and fight like hell to do it? Hang out in this area. It’s reserved for the kind of person with understated strength who doesn’t brag about it. The crush on these bars will be absolutely terrible.
