probably at least twice & now there’s a reason to read it yet again.

John has added a whole raft of new training ideas & approaches, 38 new exercises on crushing grip & dynamic training with
hand grippers, pinch grip, dumbbells, fingers & wrists – all newly-minted material that is typical of John’s creativity & cutting-
edge thinking.

Brookfield is a never-ending source of creative approaches to grip training.

As the second man in the world to close the fearsome No. 3 Captains of Crush Gripper, & the first to officially bend the
