Here's another rad video that captures the no-nonsense ability to build strength, muscle and connective-tissue integrity with minimal investment. I say that because a pair of Tyler Grips is a a great investment at $39.95 (take it easy on the drive-thru for a few weeks and they're paid for). In fact, the first prototypes are STILL in constant use, at over 7 years old. PLUS...you don't REALLY have to spend extra time training your upper-extremities since you would already be doing those curls, or seated rows, or pull-ups, etc. You are simply making use of your current muscle building exercises with the TylerGrips thrown on to make them super-effective. Therefore, there's zero investment of extra time in the gym.
I love when this athlete is asked if the 'Tyler Grip's help his grip strength'. Hilarious! A resounding, albeit exhausted "Yes" usually follows such a question. Shout out to Phelps Training System for this video. This vid is also pretty cool for the fact that it shows some other ways our strength athletes are using the TylerGrip's. The hard work will pay off fellas. Keep it up!
Ben Rice from Universal Nutrition is getting his SWOLL on by doing some strict Pull-ups with the TylerGrips. The best in the biz use them for sure. Check out one of America's rising athletes in Ben Rice. Keep up the hard work!

Another cool way to make any exercise a thick-handle exercise with a pair of TylerGrips, Ben Rice goes after it with this Hercules hold. Again, the "secret" behind Tyler Grips is that you are already going to be using some dumbbells and barbells in your workout, right? Then simply add Tyler Grips to the movement and you are suddenly forcing your forearms, wrists, hands and "grip" to work at a post-apocalyptic pace, which results in bigger muscles, stronger connective tissue and joints along with a crushing grip that can not be denied.
If you are serious enough to throw on some bands on top of your already, grueling chest workout then this is a way to excel to the next level. Here is another vid of Ben Rice (Universal Nutrition) pumping out some impressive reps on bench press. We have had a lot of our "stronger" (powerlifters) customers that swear that adding Tyler Grips to bench press eases shoulder pressure and pain. It's actually no surprise though as we found bench-press to ALSO be easier on the wrists as well. Plus, with the added circumference a pair of Tyler Grips affords, your grip strength explodes even when working the chest.
Even though this is "only" 135 lbs. on the bar, I have seen some seriously big, grown men that have had trouble with this amount of weight on deadlift when having to perform with the added thick-handle training Tyler Grips offer. This vid of fat grip deadlifts by a trainee of Dan Blewett, exemplifies the "multi-tasking" type of super-tough exercises that go beyond "compound movements". It's no surprise that one of America's best trainers in Dan Blewett recognizes the impact thick-handle training can have on all athletes success on the field. It's a major compliment when you hear that trainees "love and hate Tyler Grips". Hilarious. Keep up the tough training!
One of the best ways to ensure proper shoulder development is to add a lot of unilateral dumbbell work. Actually, if you want ANY type of symmetry, along with fewer injuries, you need to be performing at least 30% unilateral exercises.
Here, we have Ben Rice from Universal Nutrition performing thick-handle shoulder presses, care of Tyler Grips. Swollness.
