Grip n Rip 2.0 Review

by Chris on April 11, 2010

I was really disappointed that I couldn’t make it to the Grip n Rip workshop in February, so I was pretty excited to hear that the workshop was going to be made into a DVD. It’s first release had only 100 copies, and I made sure I got one of the first copies. As soon as it arrived, I popped it into the DVD player and let’s just say it didn’t disappoint.

Biofeedback and the Gym Movement Protocol

Training with biofeedback is something that I was first introduced to by Adam Glass. If you don’t know Adam, you should. I’ve followed his work for a while and he is one of the top of the trainers I look to for inspiration and guidance. He also happens to be one of the strongest men on earth. The verdict on whether or not he is some form of robot is still out. Anyway, back to Biofeedback…

Training with biofeedback is a scary animal. If you want to do it, you must question everything you know about training. I will admit that’s one of the reasons I was hesitant to try it in the first place. If you’re interested in trying the biofeedback method, Grip n Rip is a great place to start.

The DVD is separated into a few sections:

“Secrets” of the Deadlift, Pressing and Grip Training


Fat Loss/Body Transformation

While the “secrets” parts are great, it was the programming section that really caught my attention. I’ve been using biofeedback for a short while, and while I’ve been testing different things I still had (and still have) a lot of questions. The Grip n Rip DVD answered many of them and gave me direct examples to use.

The Good

Grip n Rip 2.0 is one of the best resources out there if you are looking for easy, direct instruction on how to implement the Biofeedback/Gym Movement method. In addition to that, there are outstanding tips for improving your deadlift, pressing and grip training. The fat loss/body transformation section also has some great information.

As far as quality, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the DVD was put together. The video and audio quality is excellent, and to be honest that really shocked me. I can’t tell you how many workshop DVDs I’ve bought where one or both of those was sub-par or downright terrible. While many people don’t care about this if the information is good, let’s be honest it can really ruin a DVD. That was very much not the case here.

The Bad

In all honesty the worst part about the Grip n Rip 2.0 DVD was that there were only 100 available for initial release. Other than that the only negative I really felt about the DVD was that at points the camera can be really erratic. That can be justified by the fact that this was filmed at a workshop, and it doesn’t affect the quality of the information, but it can still be a little annoying at times. Is it enough to make a difference? I don’t think so. There were very few times when it happened enough to be a problem, and like I said, the information is still outstanding.

Bottom Line

The bottom line is that Grip n Rip 2.0 is an excellent resource if you want to learn the biofeedback training method. Adam and Brad did an outstanding job, and I’m still very disappointed that I missed this workshop. I’m a pretty picky guy and have been known to ask for my money back if I am not satisfied. I have very high standards when it comes to products like this and I can really give Grip n Rip 2.0 a strong endorsement. Pick it up if you can here: Grip n Rip 2.0 As of this writing, it’s sold out, so sign up for the waiting list if you can. I doubt you’ll be disappointed.

Author’s Note

I just want everyone to know that I am NOT an affiliate for this product. I purchased this DVD myself, and reviewed it of my own volition and received nothing in return. The above review is my own opinion.
