I put this together as a fun and tough way to use the various grips (Globe Gripz, Fat Gripz Extreme, and T Grips) I have into one challenge.
The Grip Gauntlet is a fun workout and killer test of grip strength to boot. Check out my buddy Sgt. Jim Vaglica doing the Grip Gauntlet in the vid below.

No, I can’t complete the Grip Gauntlet! Jim has the grip to weight ratio of an orangutan and he didn’t get through it, but I think a few more tries and he would. 😎

If you’re interested in some of the grips shown in this vid and or want to see my discussion on the importance of grip, thick bar training, etc see these articles/vids for more information:

    That’s just a messed up way to treat work out partners…thanks for the idea!

    Very good idea if you are in shape enough to do it.

    Hey Will,
    Love your stuff and sorry for the delayed comment (was travelling south-east Asia…)
    Just one remark:
    If you don’t want to change the width of the hold (get narrower or wider as the complex/super-set advances) you can arrange the grips by the same order (for ex. –1-2-3——1-2-3–) so you actually moving to the left or right without changing your grip width. Also, you can use different grips with either hand.
    Those were actually two remarks, sorry…
