Videos - How to Set a Gripper

Grippers are great for building hand strength and they are a staple in all Grip contests. To be competitive, you must learn how to set the gripper correctly.

I went through YouTube and found the best videos available on how to set a gripper.

Check these videos out and notice the similarities:

- where to place the gripper
- how to position the hand

I guarantee that many of you are setting the gripper incorrectly, because almost everybody does it wrong at first, including me when I first started.

These videos will show you how to set a gripper. You may notice a few differences in these techniques, but they are all great resources for you.

Matt Brouse covers his technique:

Hopefully these videos help you out!
