Captains of Crush (CoC) grippers are the world’s top grip strength tool, but as IronMind began explaining more than a decade ago, there is more to hand strength and health than what you can crush.

In all likelihood, nearly all your daily activities involve the flexors in your hands—whether you are shaking hands, holding a tennis racquet or squeezing your favorite Captains of Crush gripper.  The other side of the coin is your extensors, and without some work on them, pain and possibly injury are likely to follow—think tennis elbow if you want an example of how things can go awry.

In 2005, IronMind developed Expand-Your-Hand Bands as a fun, convenient way to train the extensors in a progressive manner, so if you pair up a Captains of Crush gripper with a set of Expand-Your-Hand Bands, that has your hands covered . . . in both directions.

Do your hands (and yourself) a favor and remember that your hands open as well as close, and if you want to give this a try for yourself, here are a couple of new packages that will deliver all the benefits of balanced hand training while saving you money at the same time, one built around the Captains of Crush Trainer gripper and Captains of Crush No. 1 gripper.
