I put this together as a fun and tough way to use the various grips (Globe Gripz, Fat Gripz Extreme, and T Grips) I have into one challenge.

The Grip Gauntlet is a fun workout and killer test of grip strength to boot. Check out my buddy Sgt. Jim Vaglica doing the Grip Gauntlet in the vid below.

No, I can’t complete the Grip Gauntlet! Jim has the grip to weight ratio of an orangutan and he didn’t get through it, but I think a few more tries and he would. 8-)

If you’re interested in some of the grips shown in this vid and or want to see my discussion on the importance of grip, thick bar training, etc see these articles/vids for more information:
