Think i may start cycling box deads into my lifting which, as a result of increased ROM, should develop grip strength.

It'll only be a slight improvement on the grip strength you get from deads. Grip is mostly involved pre lockout till the bar reaches the inferior aspect of the patella.

For the time being i don't need to improve my grip strength/nor am i training my grip, but with the increase in ROM it'll mean i hold onto the bar longer which may see a small increase in grip development.

Definitions of fringe:

3. outer limit: the outer edge, or something considered to be on the outer edge and not central to an activity, interest, or issue

6. faction: members of a group or organization who hold views not representative of the group

See what I mean? Just kind of 'out there'!

ahh I used to use one of these things (http://www.criticalbench.com/images/...r-strength.jpg) to train for rock climbing too
I never had any idea of how much force was required to close my grip thingy tho...I was working on my strength/weight ratio more than anything else so probably nothing compared to what you're all on about in this thread :cool:
I should get mine out, probably couldn't close the little finger one anymore!

Oh, I've never seen one of those before. Seems like they'd be good for guitar playing.

Anyways, If you're still interested in training individual fingers, CoC has two finger micro grippers aswell, but they provide pretty good amounts of resistance.

Try the opposite, rack deads, as you can use a lot more weight. They should be better for grip strength.

Yeh i do them when im at Uni as the gym up there has the equipment. Currently i don't have access to enough weight, nor a 'rack' so box deads seem a suitable replacement exercise for the conventional deadlift.

If the chance arises i'll come over and introduce myself on Saturday if you'd like.

Would be a pleasure, I tend to be very psyched on competition day though, so apologies if I am not my normal lovely self.
