The Alpha Grips feel very comfortable to me and they fit the hand nicely, and the grooves are spaced perfectly and help. Of course I don't have any experience using an actual thick bar or any other similar thick grip attachment like Fat Gripz which aren't contoured to fit the hand, so I guess it's possible someone who's used to using those might think the Alpha Grips feel odd or may not like the feel of them or something. I don't know, but I do know I like the Alpha Grips and sometime down the road I'll probably get the Alpha Grips 3.0 to train with. Though my grip strength still has a ways to go before that.

I have some Sandow Spring Grip Dumbbells, but admittedly I haven't used them regularly or too much at all really.

This pair of the 7-spring gentleman's nickel plated dumbbells with leather clothed handles.

This pair with 7-springs and handles contoured to fit the palm & fingers.

This 7-spring single, which has the best/strongest springs of the ones I have.

I also have a pair of 5-spring H. Broom spring grip dumbbells which are made of wood.

And I have this chest expander with spring grip handles.

Great Sandow stuff, I have some kicking around here as well. (I sold a bunch also, just too much stuff hanging around).
Kept some pairs for myself though as well...

Cleaning out a garage stall this spring, hope to build a display for some of my bells. Julie keeps tripping on them on her way to the laundry room, I just tell her to "look where she's going". Didn't go over well.

Hello,

Hangboard training, as often done in climbing can be interesting.

Are we all mad? or what!. I just love the photos of the weights and mixed apparatus and showing the wife some of the photos makes her appreciate just how tidy my own den is. Sometimes she has to hoover the den out, which means her moving a lot of dumbells, but someone's got to do it........David Gentle. I am sure if we all got together, we could make a good show up against the Texas museum.
