It works. People have done that for years, I believe.

Yeah, that's good for the fingers and what it's really good for is working the opening of the hands which helps prevent imbalance. Ironmind sells little rubber bands for this very purpose..but you can use a bunch of heavy rubber bands.

I'd be temped to pick up the bucket by the edges more than use the rice, though

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

That would be difficult.

It's kind of funny, the guys at my gym go through these phases. For a while it was flipping bumper plates up in the air with one hand and catching them with the same hand. Then it was pinching standard plates together and picking them up. Then it was the rolling handle static holds. Everyone has always messed with the CoC grippers. Oh, and picking up short bars vertically is another one.

I'm glad you mentioned opening the hands, E. I haven't thought much about that. It's something that I haven't really trained much.
