Yes I did! :jmp:
Anyone here know what on earth I am talking about?:vlol:

If you don't: It is a hand grip, their easiest "serious" gripper. Most women cannot close it, and even some quite strong men cannot. I did it with my left hand, but can't even get close with my right.:hea:

I have strong hands for a woman - mainly from playing rock piano :D!!!

I have no idea what this is but after having read the topic... *goes to get bathroom scale, squeezes, comes back to post* I held my bathroom scale in my hands and squeezed it with 180 lbs of pressure. That's about 10 to 15 more lbs than I weigh. :o

A number of years back I might have been able to get more pressure when I used to do a lot of chin-ups.

They have those for guitarists too. Never spent much time with them, strength is fine, but control over that strength is more important.

Keep playing piano!!

Woah Capt. M, you are strong! The #1 gripper is 140 lbs, so you might be able to close the #2 which is 195 lbs :cool:! By the way, only a handful of people have ever closed the #4, which is 365 lbs :yik:!!

strength is fine, but control over that strength is more important.

Well said :cool:, DragonDan. I recognise you as a student of unarmed combat :).
