Deal of the Week – StrongerGrip Gripbell Package

If you saw the GripBell Connector Bar (video at left) the other day, your head’s no doubt filled with the possibilities. Bent rows, sled drags, high pulls and so on.
To make this a reality, Ryan Pitts has put together a package especially for readers of this newsletter. It’s a set comprising 2 Gripbell Dumbbells, and a connector bar. Good stuff.
And as a bonus, for the next 24 hours Ryan’ll be offering this superb set at a massive discount. No matter where you are, order one before Tuesday, Nov 17 2009.
