I can't even close it!!
(I can't even halfway close it probably)
Kevin Nee: "I actually don’t do any grip exercises besides actual events, I cant even shut a number 2 COC. For this contest I really, really worked on my clean and I also went with a thumb-less grip. I knew the bar was fixed and I knew I could throw the weight up high and fast enough and I also knew I could dip under it fast enough, so thumb-less was definetly way to go."
seriously? the 1 is pretty easy
i may not bench 4 plates but I can close it for reps
yeah i just have really poor grip strength.
i mean i can hold 125 dbs in my hand for rows and shrugs
im gonna keep working on it.
That doesnt make much sense. I know people who don't even lift and can close it.
to clarify, handle has to touch handle.
close the no. 2 upside down.
A friend can close it and he doesn't workout Rock climbs though
Last night I tried bending a nail... holy crap that's a lot harder than the CoC grippers I failed miserably
my grip strength is super weak, i go thumbless on everything except for deadlifts
i think it helps if you have larger hands as well so if you have small hands that is a disadvantage.
I couldn't close the #1 when I first got it. I now close the #3 with a sub 7 inch hand though...you just gotta keep at it.
what exactly do you mean by thumbless?
probably thumbs out not in
Took me about two weeks to be able to close a CoC 1. When I started I could only go between 1/2 and 3/4 of the way
I have the Trainer and the 1. I can close them both. Some guy at my old gym had a #2 and I could only get it like half way. Thems is hard yo.
I only do single reps. I know people who do like sets of 10 with them. I'm like damn.
there's a dude at my gym who does the no. 1's with his wrist turned in
Holy no leverage
it's not as hard as you think
