There is no doubt about it, Hand Grippers are extremely popular Grip Training tools. They are affordable, do not take much room, and are easy to take with you wherever you go. However, despite all of the good things about Grippers, there is also one drawback. Training with Hand Grippers can be frustrating. Have you ever completed a program and saw zero to little improvement? This ebook will share the exact methods that Jedd used to close some of the heaviest Hand Grippers at the 2015 North American Grip Sport Championship!
Two Critical Mistakes of Gripper Training
-Mistake #1 Excessive Volume:
For years, High Volume Training has been a popular method for training Grip Strength. However, it is not always the best. Sooner or later, your hands will stop responding to the volume and your progress will stagnate. In short, volume needs to be controlled and each repetition you make must have a purpose!
-Mistake #2 PR Syndrome:
This condition is marked by someone so hungry to finally set a new PR (Personal Record) in their training, that they try time and time again to close their goal gripper. The problem here is when you try to close your goal gripper too much, you end up missing most of the time. when you miss on an all-out attempt, you tend to wear out your hands more quickly, reducing the amount of quality training you can get in. Now, I love a new P.R. as much as the next lifter, but you can't sacrifice a good workout just to make attempts at your goal gripper. What is even worse, when you get in the habit of missing on grippers all the time, your hand gets trained to stop short of the point where the handles close! First You need to develop your strength all the way to the point where the grippers handles touch. Luckily, the Cadence Based Training Ebook will teach you how to overcome these two mistakes and achieve your goals!

The Four Core Concepts of Cadence Based Training
Concept #1: Purposeful Effort
In Cadence Based Training, every single attempt you take has a purpose.
No more hitting a bunch of reps just to meet a quota or a goal rep count.
Now, it's about making sure that every single repetition you complete is actually worth something.
Every single time you set the gripper, you have a purpose.
Every single time you close a gripper, there is a reason behind it.
Now, every single repetition you perform in your workouts will contribute to the end-goal => Making You Better on Grippers.
Concept #2: Success Based Training
Like we said before, too many misses do nothing but hurt your strength.
This program is built upon successes - full closures of the gripper.
With CBT, you want to feel the handles touch on every single purposeful repetition.
In fact, you won't only be shutting them, you'll be holding them closed for a predetermined time.
That's why it's called "Cadence" Based Training.
With Cadence Based Training, it's not just about making the gripper handles touch for an instant.
Doing that is just "overcoming" the strength of the gripper.
And while being strong enough to "overcome" the gripper is cool and all, you want more than that.
You want to "DOMINATE" the gripper.
You want to "EMBARRASS" the gripper.
And as you work your way through the program I have laid out for you in the Cadence Based Training framework, that's exactly what you'll be doing...
Dominating and Embarrassing grippers that you previously were having trouble closing.
Concept #3: Erasing All Weaknesses
There are three main parts of the Gripper Technique: The Set, The Sweep, and the Finish.
And in each workout, I have added a drill to strengthen all three individual segments.
Let's look at each one separately.
The Set is whatever pre-positioning you do with the off-hand prior to closing the gripper.
Whether you stick with a shallow set before you smash the gripper, or if you go with a deep set and then crush it down, the stronger your set is, the better.
But, if you struggle with the set, then you're wasting valuable energy before you even try closing the handles down.
The Setting Drills I have peppered into the Cadence Based Training Program are going to strengthen your set and you'll feel stronger and more confident every time you put a Gripper in your hand.
The Sweep is the second stage of the Gripper Range of Motion. It starts immediately after the set and continues until the very end.
Most people do not think they have a problem with the Sweep, but actually EVERYONE can improve this.
And I have included drills to strengthen your sweep throughout the course of the Cadence based Training Program.
The Finish is the final portion of the Gripper Range of Motion. It is the last 1/4-inch. The last few millimeters.
It's also the hardest part of closing a Gripper.
But don't worry, I've got you covered. Throughout the Program, I've built in specialty drills that will build your Finishing Strength.
When you start incorporating these, you are going to know EXACTLY what it's like to DOMINATE and EMBARRASS a hand gripper.
Concept #4: Stay Healthy at All Times
It does no good whatsoever to be hurt.
You can't build strength when you're injured.
With this in mind, I included Hand Health exercises and Stretching in each workout.
The Hand Health exercises you are going to learn are going to help you keep your forearms healthy and prevent things like tennis elbow and tendonitis from setting in and ruining your training.
The Stretches will keep your hands and wrists limbered up, ensuring that you continue to progress throughout the entire program.
And each hand Health and Stretching session is going to take you about 5 minutes, so very little time will be added to your workout at all.
On top of all that, I also plugged in Deloading periods throughout the program.
Deloading is something that most lifters forget to do - planned periods of reduced intensity training that help your body recover from all the intense work you put in, and rebuild for the training to come in the weeks ahead.
Because of all this, you're not only going to be CRUSHING BIGGER GRIPPERS, but your hands are going to feel FRESHER than they ever have before.
