Mike mashes the GripBoard Mash Monster Gripper - Level 2

Name: Mike Rinderle

Location: USA

Age: 42

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 253

Date of Feat: November 19, 2009

Witness: Melissa Rinderle

VIDEO:

How Long Grip Training: Since February 2009 (had messed around for a couple months with a buddy's HGs here are work a couple of years ago).

Current Grip Training Program: Recently finished Bill Piche's RRBT experimental training program. It was brutal, but well worth it. After recovering and peaking, it was exactly what I needed to get the MM2. After the peaking phase (and after my failed attempt a couple of weeks ago), I also incorporated some choker work on heavier grippers as well. Thanks to Brent Barbe for lending me his RB300. I think that was exactly what I needed to get me over the top.

I also have been doing a lot of pinch, axle, 1" vbar and block weight work.

Other Training Info: Emphasis is on full body compound movements: Deads, squats, row, bench, overhead press, etc.

Acknowledgements: First of all, my lovely wife Melissa for puttin up with this stuff. All the guys from the GripBoard, expecially: Goody, Jedd, Brent, John, Sam, Frank, Franky, Teemu, Manthos, Ben, Chris, Jason, Matt, Todd, Paul, Rico, Eric, Smitty, Bill, and a bunch of other people I am sure I am forgetting. Thanks everyone for all your help and support!
