The Heavy Grips hand gripper series was developed for athletes who want to take the training of their grip strength to the next level.
These high quality aluminum-handled handgrippers are crafted with 50 inch-force-lb torque increments from 100lbs to 350lbs so that you can train your grip similar to training any other bodypart, by increasing resistance. This will finally allow you to build the huge forearms and crushing grip you have been unable to achieve by doing endless reps with plastic-handled hand-grippers.
If you want to develop serious hand strength for a sport, or just want to impress your friends, than the Heavy Grips hand grippers are the perfect choice for you! If you're worried about working hard, getting sore hands and possibly some calluses on your fingers, than this product is not for you!
The handles are set closer together than similar grippers which allows those of us without giant hands to hold them comfortably in the starting position.
The knurling on the handles provides a solid grip but won't rip your hands apart (like the captains of crush will).
I've found that there is a distinct psychological value to having the whole set as opposed to only the two or three you can fully close. It's like the ones you can't close are sitting there taunting you.
For those of you who don't allow inanimate objects to agitate you, perhaps this won't work, but for me it's great motivation.
Buy a set of six heavy grips and save some cash!
HG 100 "Beginner" - At the first squeeze, the HG100 may not seem to be much tougher than a store-bought plastic hand-gripper, but it's smooth action and aggressive knurled grip can be deceiving. The "Beginner" is perfect for consumers beginning their 'grip training' as well as younger athletes, female athletes, athletes with small hands and warm-ups for stronger athletes.
HG 150 "Intermediate" - Consumers that have a fairly strong grip can usually squeeze out a few reps with the HG150, but it can be difficult for females and younger athletes although those athletes can easily work up to the HG150 in a short time with consistent training. Most athletes with consistent HG training will find that the HG150 only provides resistance for 3 to 15 reps for 2 to 6 weeks and they are ready to step up to the HG200 or beyond because the hand responds so well to resistance training with low repetitions.
HG 200 "Advanced" -The HG200 is the level that even athletes with a naturally strong grip may have trouble closing. Athletes with advanced grip training will not have too much trouble with the HG200, but those with no grip training experience will most likely find it very difficult to close the HG200 at the beginning of their training. When you are closing the HG200 for reps, your performance for any sport using your hands will be greatly enhanced.
HG 250 "Professional"- When you are closing the HG250 for reps, you will have to be very careful when shaking people's hand! If you can close the HG250 once, your hand strength is well beyond the average athlete. Usually only athletes with a hardcore grip training regimen and people who do heavy work with their hands can close the HG250 on their first attempt. Just because you have lifted weights for a few years, don't assume that you will be able to close a HG250. It's much harder than it looks!
HG 300 "The Gripper King" - Although there are well over 20 000 HG300's on the market, we estimate that there are less than 250 athletes world-wide that can do reps with this hand grip although most male athletes (and there have been a couple of women) with an average-sized hand can build up their hand-strength to close a HG300 for at least one rep if they train regularly with the Heavygrips. The key to closing the HG300 is consistency with your hand-strength training and avoiding over-training (Don't train with your HG's more than twice per week or when your hand is still sore from your last work-out)
HG350 "The Grip Monster" - The newest addition to the Heavy Grip line-up! The HG 350 hit the market in 2006 at the request of athletes who complained that the HG300 was not tough enough! Although there have been some very strong athletes doing reps with the HG300, we haven't had anyone tell us that the HG350 was too easy! If you can close the HG350, your hand strength is definitely 'world-class'.
WARNING: Training with hand grippers is extremely addictive! They will be hard to put down, resulting in overtraining and possibly extreme hand soreness.
Like everything else, there is a right way and a wrong way to hold, or seat the gripper in your hand. Watch this informative youtube video:
Don't neglect extensor training.
Extensors are the muscles on the back of the forearm involved in opening the hand and are extremely important to hand health and strength. Wrap a thick rubber band around the ends of your fingers and open your hand for as many reps as possible. For a real challenge, place both rubber bands on one hand - TRY TO OPEN YOUR HAND! Buy Heavy Grips from me and I'll include two thick, heavy duty rubber bands:
I have been buying your grippers for about a year now. I have probably bought 20+ over all (gave most as gifts to family and friends). I have bought your product from different sources both from older stock and new stock. I have to say that I am very surprised at your company; your product has gotten better from what I can see. It's good to see a company that increases the quality in their product without passing the expense on to the consumer. Also your warranty is a no-nonsense lifetime warranty. I have used it once and expected a hassle, so I kept everything from emails from the seller, receipts, shipping dates and numbers, and packaging. NOPE! Not with you guys! All you guys wanted to know is: 1. is it damaged? 2. Let us see it 3. Here's your new one. Thanks from a very satisfied customer!
I am 17 years old and have been weightlifting since I was 15. I first got the 150 HeavyGrip and the HG 200 when I turned 17. I closed the HG150 easily out of the box but couldn't even close the 200 once. Now I am using the HG200 for reps and can get the HG250 3 times!! I am currently working on the HG300 and hope to have it crushed by my 18th birthday! Thank you so much for making such a great product! I know I will continue to use these for the rest of my life!
Thanks, Robbie George
Awesome Product! These grippers definitely kick some major ass!! I bought the complete set of Heavy grippers three months ago and could barely squeeze the HG150. Today I squeezed out five full reps with the HG250, but still have 1/2" to go for the HG300 :(

I would just like to express my appreciation for your Heavy Grips products. I've already had one of them for 2 months now and my brother just purchased all of them as a set. They really are a great workout tool and they are very addictive. I am determined to get to the highest level of resistance!
Keep it up and thanks again!

I just wanted to let you know that I received my set of Heavy Grippers (man, that was fast!) and am really impressed with both their quality and the range of strength required to close each gripper. Although I am relatively new to the grip world, I have had occasion to use other grippers and working with the HGs, I am finding that having a balanced set of grippers is allowing me to really plan my training and monitor my progress. I especially like the 50 lbs increments as I can move up gradually, and the range offered by your grippers provides me with a gripper for every need, be it higher reps, over crushes, singles, or negatives. These babies are silky smooth and built to last, Thanks guys!

I have your 150lb gripper and it's awesome! I could hardly close it when I first got it now I can easily close it 20 times and am ready to step up to the 200lb gripper.

Thanks again, the hand grippers are in great shape and you shipped them fast! (HG300)
Heavy is right! I got the HG150 for 40reps, but the HG250 for 1. Nice product.
Super Fast!!! Would buy from again,Thanks! (HG150)
My HG100 came as quickly as I ordered it. Thanks a lot! Highly recommend.
Great! Honest seller. Love to do business again...A++++ (HG200 & HG250)
Barry, I received the hand grippers. These things are great. I've been lifting weights, cardio, the whole shebang for 25 years and I can't do the 200 pounds grippers 10 times yet with each hand. I have the 'light' one at work and we all have been struggling with it.
We will have a handshake competition in a few months as we all mess with it (I have it sitting on the corner of my desk for long emails and teleconferences) and see who cries and takes a knee first. Thanks again for the fast shipping, Steve from Philly
Don't waste your money on other more expensive grippers when Heavy Grips gets the job done. One Heavy Grips Hand Grippers review stated: "This set is cheaper than the "Captains of Crush" grippers, by about half the amount for a set of six; and they are basically of the same quality."
Bottom line: Great quality grippers at a fair price.
Most people who buy too easy of a gripper buy the next gripper up (or two steps up), and keep the easier gripper to warm up with.
That's why a set of six is the best deal. I can do 20 reps with the HG100, 10-15 with the HG150, 8-10 reps with the HG200, I can close the HG250 about 3/4 of the way and hold it for 30 seconds, and the HG300 & 350 I can close maybe a 1/4" and hold for 15-20 seconds.
These grippers work so well, I decided to buy them wholesale and sell them direct from this page. If you buy them from me, not only will you save a little on each gripper, but I'll include these freebies:
Heavy Grips Lifetime Warranty
The set of six grippers should provide you with a challenge for some time to come, and they have a lifetime warranty. I will replace free of charge any Heavy Grip hand gripper that has broken or malfunctioned through normal use or manufacturer defect. Unlike most companies that have a "limited lifetime warranty", our Lifetime Warranty means a lifetime. If your HG hand-gripper spring breaks 15 days, 15 months or even 15 years from now, or a handle ever falls off, I will send you a new Heavy Grip handgrip, at no expense to you, right away.
