  2. Most Impressive #3 Cert Ever?

    My thoughts exactly. Couldnt have said it better dude.It is one thing to train only TNS, like Doc, and do your cert that way. But completely another to wait a cert out until its so far beneath your actual ability that its not even worth doing. Imo, if your goal is to cert, even if you have further plans to cert higher, later, then you need to do it as soon as your able. otherwise you risk unjury and never certing anything in your quest for higher whatever. But then again, it is quite possible ths guy had a 160# 3 that he trained with, and refused to cert till he could CCs it, then got a low 140s gripper on his cert... And since i can completely not understand the mentality behind "waiting" to cert after your strong enough, i like to believe that the latter was the case. My thoughts exactly.

I remember reading he was ready for the cert and got injured, then had to work back up again, so he had already good strength I guess. I would never wait for the cert, when I can do it, I'll do the request. Although I must say, having an attempt under the belt already makes me preferably come back much stronger then needed if you catch my drift. Seeing the RGC results from CPW lately for IM#3's I definitely want to be able to CCS the top of those grippers before going for it again. It is however for this cert very difficult to stay in that linear or even progressive strengthline.Well, certification or not, I have personally never seen anyone make a #3 look that easy. Lol, well technically unless you were there when he did it, you still havent personally seen anyone do it. Aaron is the man. I remember seeing a pic of him next to Mark Felix and he actually made Mark look like a normal size guy.Yeah, he's strong. Gabriel sum was even stronger, probably. My point though is that their closes don't look as dominating as Jang Sung-hyun's. Not even close, in my opinion. I wrote "personally", not "in person".

  4. Most Impressive #3 Cert Ever?

    Yeah, I thought about it too. If you can confidently CCS, lets say, a #3 at 155 any workout, then a 140 at the day of the cert probably will look something like in his video if you're well prepared and fired up.
  5. Most Impressive #3 Cert Ever?

    Ah, yeah, I like that one too. I remember reading somewhere that he only trained tns, which makes it extra cool. What makes me extra impressed by Jang Sung-hyun's cert is how he LITERALLY makes it look like a trainer. He closes the thing so fast. The sweep should look way harder. You often kind of see 2 "phases" of the sweep when a person is closing a gripper with a wide set like that, but not with this guy.
  6. Most Impressive #3 Cert Ever?

    I have personally never seen such domination of a #3.

    Haha! I clearly remember this comment as well, even though it's a long long time since I read it.
  8. Cracking The Knuckles

    http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/knuckle-cracking-firework-flash-imaged-radiologists Generally harmless. Some studies say it may result in a decrease in grip strength though. So, I suppose we can't be sure yet, and therefore I think it's harmful to say it is completely harmless.
  9. Yep, you would. Ask me how I know. I have small hands and they have not changed in appearance at all throughout the years, they're still little boy hands. But they are much, much stronger now. To answer your questions, it's all about the tendon strength. There is no hypertrophy there. Damn that sucks that we can't do anything to get larger hands/fingers i feel feminine with my small hands and that's my insecurity... I gues there are no real adventages in hand strength if you have small hands... What training do you do to get stronger small hands, just grippers is it enough? I think the only adventages of small / thin fingers is that it helps with wall climbing if your fingers/hands are trained well, you can grip small rocks on the wall better . Also based on your bending video your hands are far from small, mine are smaller Of course your hands can get thicker. Of course you can get super strong without having thick hands with thick fingers/bones.
  10. Annoying Ironmind Hub Question

    45 is a good lift.
  11. Annoying Ironmind Hub Question

    Well, you're the hubgeezer, so it was expected of you. What is your PR btw?
  12. Annoying Ironmind Hub Question

    Manna was in the 70's on the hub before he got his MM0...I got a #3.5 mms well before I broke 70lbs on the IMhub (never got 75lbs). But...ignoring that everyone is slightly different, I also think that 70-75 is somewhat comparable. Okay! 75 is kind of what I thought myself. Thanks, Eric. It's just that it's always difficult to compare two completely different feats/lifts, but it obviously is possible in some sense as you all answered ~75.
  13. Annoying Ironmind Hub Question

    What IM hub number would you compare to, say, a 3.5 mms close? I have been training grippers for a long time, but the hub is new to me and I would like to have a frame of reference. Also, I'm talking a IM hub lift that ironmind would actually green light, cause people can obviously lift way more when holding the thing differently (not to take anything away from those lifts/lifters).

    Well done, Jared. Super explosive.
