Ever wonder why you can’t increase the amount of weight you push in the gym? You may be suffering from weak hands. Well, let me show you a product that is the cure-all for that. IronMind’s Captains of Crush hand grippers are for the real man out there that needs to increase his hand strength. But mostly, we love them just for the value they have as a drinking game.
Now these things are nowhere near the stuff you get in the exercise department at your local sporting goods shop. These things are made for guys who know that hand strength is the base for a sound weight lifting program. Heck these things are not for the faint of heart. They even come with a certification program, but more on that later.
First off, there are ten of these bad boys that you can buy. Each one getting harder and harder in the amount of hand pressure you must use to get the thing closed. And closed is when the little metal bars click and you can’t fit a credit card between them.

Now onto the certification program, because these things are so hard to close they actually will send someone out to certify that you can close the grippers. Why you ask? Because men like to brag about things and this is just one more thing to be able to brag about. And since we are bragging, I can close the trainer model which takes 100lbs of pressure to close. I know someone who can do the 3 which takes 280lbs of pressure. That guy doesn’t have a weak handshake at all.
Now onto the drinking fun, this is worth picking one up at 20 bucks a pop and trying to get your friends to close one. I predict they will shit their pants before doing so!
