    Personally, I never really liked those, 'cause your hands hurt from doing them. I wouldn't really recommend those to anyone I know, although I heard a lot of praise about Captain Crush Grippers... which is sorta the same thing...

    Everyone's got a different range of reps they're comfortable with. I'd suggest experimenting and seeing how long it takes for you to consistently burn out. Probably with those grip thingies, I'd guess around the 30 range.

    Do you Deadlift?

    Overhand barbell curls did the best for my forearms...but most people hate them

    try doing someinterval types things for your forearms. A static grip on them gradually getting stronger ones will do wonders for your grip. Doing reps to failure will pump up your forearms.

    Personally I think the best thing for forearms is using a wrist roller.

    Wrapping a towl around the bar can also be an alternative.

    If you're looking for max strength then you'll want to get a gripper that you can attempt your 1RM with. For size you just have to eat.

    Didn't we already give you advice?...
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
