How Long Grip Training: ~18 months
Current Grip Training Program:  Recently I've been doing the grippers once or twice a week, and been bending once or twice a week. When I do grippers, I never know what I'm going to do till I start, maybe 5-10 singles with a hard gripper or very high singles with a lesser gripper. I normally bend grade 5's, with an occasional grade 8, (or try to) and do them till I miss then go to 60d's till I miss. I've just started doing wrist curls and found they are a lot harder than they appear to be. Throw in a little sledge work and maybe some TTK if I get tired of tripping over it. I really just go by how I feel, and how much I am pushed by Steve M.
Other Training Info: A couple times a week, I will do some curls with a thick dumbbell, and some tricep work. I've got a lot of strongman stuff, log, keg, rocks, tire, farmers but I don't fool with them a lot because I don't get home in time most days. I also do some long bar bending; I find this is a workout in itself.
Acknowledgements: Thanks to everyone on the GripBoard, even if I don't know everyone, I read what everyone posts and learn a lot from it.
