HG100s - The Beginner
- The "Beginner" is perfect for you if you are beginning your 'grip training' as well as for younger athletes, female athletes, athletes with small hands and warm-ups for stronger athletes.
- If you have a fairly strong grip you can probably squeeze out a few reps with the HG150. If you are female or a teenager you might need to work up to the HG150 by training with the HG100.
- With consistent training you will find that the HG150 only provides resistance for 3 to 15 reps for 2 to 6 weeks after this you should be ready to step up to the HG200 or beyond.
- Even if you have a naturally strong grip you may have trouble closing the HG200.
- If you have done some advanced grip training you should not have too much difficulty with the HG200. If you’ve had no grip training you will probably find it very difficult to close the HG200 in the beginning.
- If you can close the HG250 once, your hand strength is well beyond the average athlete.
- Usually only athletes with a hardcore grip training and people who do heavy work with their hands can close the HG250 on their first attempt.
- And 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!
- Heavy Sports, the manufacturer of Heavy Grips, estimates that there are less than 250 athletes world-wide that can do reps with the HG300 although most male athletes (and there have been a couple of women) can build up their hand-strength to close a HG300 for at least one rep if they train regularly with the Heavy Grips.
- 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)
- 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'.
