alway try to buy something that you could expand more if you thinking of really working out and growing but if you get bored fast then i dont advice you to buy expensive thing.

as for the gripper i was searching for one there is Captian Crush gripper the ultimate gripper.

www.ironmind.com

and there is another website that sells kettlbell and gripper and all the stuff that you want based in britian but it much more expensive. Why ?!?!?!? Why?!?!? in the UK is 2 as expesnise i dont remeber the website

Get the Captions of Crush, those things you posted in the pic are garbage. I have one and a five year old could close it with ease.

For sure, strong hands and fingers are important for any sport but boxing particulary. The tighter you can clench your fists on the moment of impact, the denser the "bullet" you're hitting with.

Strong hands and forearms are a must for any combat sport. Bruce Lee knew this and worked both religiously.

The Captains of Crush grips are excellent. I like how you can get progressively harder ones and the Level 4 grip has only had a few people who have been able to close it.

exactly.

and you wont break you arms because you have better support some guy punch hard but that reslut in the hand been hurt.

i once tried for a squeeze ball and trained on it a had better grip and could close my hand better in a result i could punch harder on the heavy bag

Besides the grips, what are some good hand and forearm workouts?

Thanks bro, all i do now is wrist curls and rev. curls with a EZ curl bar. Those should help.
