I used to do something like that. But I just threw a towel over the standard pull-up bar. kinda forgot about it until now but I'm remembering a lot of burning in the forearms from it.

Ah, nice! Good to see someone else on the board who trains grip or is interested in it. Good video

I have been for a while. I picked up a lot of stuff online: Heavy grips, 3 wrist rollers (different sizes), thick bar attachements, etc.

That clip made me think of adult film where the girls have good grips. ;)

My gym has similar handle attachments like that, including a set with an actual baseball as the attachment for your hand to grip while doing pullups.

applying the newly acquired strength, if you can find
it, when you are five hundred feet off the deck is a whole other story.

I respectfully disagree. It helped/help me in the following

gripping idiots up when I work as a bouncer at the club

lifting in general

jui jitsu

Lifting; pulling or pushing . . . grip has never been a limiting factor for me.
Other “parts” yes, but grip, no. So I saw no real carryover.

The other two things you mention, I could not agree more. Grip is a huge
advantage.

Again, if I was not clear . . . I was more interested in improving my climbing
ability at the time and I saw very little value. Time on the rock was what
really helped me improve as I already had the physical strength to execute
the moves, for the most part. My weak link there was, and still is, my brain.

Ah, I see what you were saying and I would have to agree that with climbing it would get to a point where improving grip strength wouldnt make much of a difference.

Grip training is fun as hell though. Especially working with blobs (roundhead york dumbbells that were cut for picking up off the ground with one hand, check it out on youtube, got all the blobs in my house)
