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

Hopefully these videos help you out!
