That moment when you have worked your grip so hard, that when you pick up your HG150, and squeeze it, you think you accidentally picked up your HG250 instead.
Springs are IN! Please check the Trading section if you have an RGC set-up, and have a Robert Baraban Adjustable gripper. I may also be interested in a trade for the RGC of the spring on a Vulcan.
Iron grip 140kg 7" bar has just been destroyed.

Have been taking some time off from gripper training due to inflammation in my left wrist. Hope to be 100% soon
Simon NoreviI never thought of that Josh! Maybe to weak wrists is the reason why I have pain in my wrist!

ZFJangoI don't know if it would have to be weak wrists. I have noticed that tendons behave differently under load. Like, when I am crushing down on a gripper, if I flex my wrist even a little bit in any direction, I immediately feel the tendons grind. I had some wrist pain, and began immobilizing my wrist with my off hand on harder grippers. I did that until I was able to pay attention and keep my wrist set hard and unmoving. Oh! Hanging from my chin-up bar also helped the inflammation. Heck...

Simon NoreviEither way I will start training my wrists as I think they get in a lot of pressure when setting grippers :)

5 MMS reps on my Heavy Grips250 with my right, and almost a 6th. I managed one rep with my left. I am grinning like an idiot!
JoshWYou need more grippers homie, some GHP's!

Billy Jack and Evan Raftopoulos helped me decide on my first CoC. I am stoked as heck. I ordered a CoC#2.5 It's begnning to look a lot like Christmassss!
Jüri SankmanEvery time when you are opening gripper package, its like opening a christmas present.. even if you know whats in there.

Got my eyes on a G8 next to bend!
Reverse Kink, DO from there. Good to be going again, my bolt cutters failed the trip though :( Plus all but one piece of furniture got broke. Moving sucks
ZFJangoMan... I hate the process of moving. I mean, I like to see new places, but I hate the moving aspect of it. Bummer about your goods getting messed up in your move. I hope it smoothes out for you.

Anybody near Bethesda, MD? This town is pretty sweet!
anwnateTom is 40-60min away depending on traffic. EJ is 45-75 depending on traffic. With rush hour(s) and the Beltway...timing things is tricky.

EJ LiveseyTraffic on 270 is a bitch. Too bad you weren't there last weekend. Last weekend I had training at NIH Bethesda campus all day.

I know people lift the hubs differently, but I really enjoy the the claw grip. I think I will stay with that
I just got a wicked deal on some springs for my Robert Baraban Adjustable gripper. If the springs work out as well as I think they will, I will have a couple extra for sale, CHEAP compared to anywhere else.
Managed to do Slim lever with my home made sledge hammer, hence new profile picture.
Hells yes! I just got a one pound bag of size 94 rubber bands. I needed a way to add even more controllable increments of gain on my Robert Baraban Adjustable gripper, and now I have it. I am geeked out about this huge bag O' bands! Forget Iron Mind power bands!
