If you are fed up with missing lifts and cutting sets short due to a slipping grip, keep reading. If you want to shatter personal records of all kinds, grab hold of this information. The strongmen of yore held the secret weapon of strength in their big, meaty paws.
Andy Bolton, the first man to deadlift over 1,000 pounds, credits two of the exercises in this very program as “the ones that have enabled a dream like a 1,008-pound deadlift to become a reality.”
Let’s be honest, it probably is. While you diligently train your heart, lung, chest and legs, you only THINK you train your arms. Sure, you do biceps curls and triceps extensions — you might even add in wrist curls — but you are still missing 90 percent of the lifts that will make you better.
Inches of dense muscle tissue. Hundreds of total pounds subtracted off of lifts. A higher risk of injury to elbows, wrists, and fingers, and for many, the shame of a weak, bony handshake.
My name is Adam Glass, and I am the man who is going to teach you to build an indomitable grip. I hold 13 world records in grip strength and have some of the strongest hands in the entire world. As a performing strongman, I have destroyed metal spikes, torn thousands of decks of cards, scrolled miles of steel bars and horseshoes. I have made the impossible a reality by developing my body past the modern worlds perceived limit.
Over the years, I have trained thousands of people to develop stronger, healthier hands: bodybuilders, powerlifters, weightlifters, mixed martial artists, rock climbers, hockey players, musicians; the list goes on and on. Every time I share the missing link of grip strength with someone, his or her performance improves. What does that mean? It means I can help YOU realize your potential!
It’s a lot easier to reach a destination when the person giving you directions has been where you want to go.
There was a time when garage lifters, athletes, and coaches thought it was enough grip training to do deadlifts, pull-ups and rows. Now, the best trainers in the world have learned that specific grip training is absolutely necessary to unleash all the physical capacity a person has. The grip simply isn’t trained enough when only trained generally.
I have dedicated over a decade of my training to knowing everything there is to know about grip training, and how to do it most effectively. No matter what the grip goal, whether pulling a massive deadlift PR or competing at the highest levels in grip sport, I have armed others with the tools and information they’ve needed to crush their goals.
For the last two years, men and women across the globe have been smashing their personal bests using the secrets of Industrial Strength Grip Vol. 1. This summer I decided it was time to polish the course.
I added 23 new never-before-seen movements not available in any other grip product anywhere. I also filmed each drill from more angles and brought in some better technology to bring to you a beautifully crafted training DVD. This is not a DVD filmed on a cell phone in someone’s garage!
You will be thrust in immediately with a lesson on the world’s favorite method of grip training, torsion spring grippers. I will share with you the methods I have used to dominate the Mash Monster 4 gripper and Captain of Crush 3.5. Grippers can be an incredible tool for grip strength, if you know how to use them. I will show you the techniques that will allow you to make incredible progress in crushing grippers, and how it can carry over to your other training.
Next we delve into the block that has allowed me to best the strongest grip athletes in the world and capture 9 pinch lifting world records: how to use the thumb.
Pinch lifting is one of the fundamental movements in grip sport and grip training. No matter what your goals, training your pinch grip will produce gains in every area.
Grip training is not limited to fingers and thumbs: It is about integration! I will teach you how to use your newfound strength to explode with power movement classics.
Some say the simple act of using a thick bar can transform the average man into a powerhouse. I leave nothing to chance by teaching you insiders’ tips for axle-lifting dominance.
Plain and simple: You will not find these gems anywhere else. These movements are simply too rugged, too hardcore for your standard bench press and quarter-squat crowd. But do these and you will make more progress this year than the last three combined!
Not only do I want you to build freaky hand strength, I want you to amaze your friends and family with it! One of the greatest lifters of all time, Vic Boff, said, “Everyone loves a strongman,” and indeed, everyone loves to see this incredible feat of strength.
And much more. This DVD is packed full of information, all of it can be immediately used by YOU right now to get stronger. There is no fluff, no filler.
"Adam Glass has quickly proven to be a force in the Grip World, skyrocketing up the ranks of the sport and laying waste to former records all along the way. His DVD should be a part of every aspiring Grip Athlete’s collection."
"Adam does an amazing job. He is a natural speaker and teacher. I’m rarely captivated by a DVD, but this rocks! I recently set a new deadlift PR and without a doubt, grip work played the single biggest factor in my strength increase on the deadlift as it was my weak link."
A couple of years ago I mistook my left hand for a bush and trimmed it with my electric hedgeclippers. When the bandages came off I could barely hold a bottle of water…
