I'm interested in the general level of grip strength that you folks have. Here's a little test that I'd like you to try if you can and then let me know how you get on: Hang from an overhead chinning bar (or similar) with each hand in turn. Time how long you can hang on for before your grip fails to the nearest second. I'd like to know your bodyweight, whether you are right or left-handed and the time you held on for with each hand. It would also be interesting to know how long you can hold on for with both hands until your grip fails. It's probably best to try this on your non-deadlift day at the end of your workout or on an off-day. ** Edited to add: As Sci pointed out below, this is not a particularly pleasant experience. I just figured you lot were used to a bit of pain. *** Also edited to add that there's some stuff about Captains of Crush grippers further on in the thread if you're interested.
