80KG 3" pinch 2HP for 3 reps this week, new PR.
Tried bending a Grade 8 today in singles and the dang thing snapped off at the threads on me???....punched myself square in the jaw lol. I'm starting to really dislike bolts!
Frank PizzoJust at the tip...coarse thread 20 count.

Tim TFine thread is harder to snap because the threads don't go as deep.

Got some Ruskie steel in. 23 bars total from 170kg to 250kg. Can't wait to get into it.
DurrsI'm gonna test the 170 and work up if I can. That 250 bar looks like a Beast!

acromegamanThey're all beasts! I'm gonna have to order some more.

Saturday morning weigh-in update. Starting weight: 243.4 Current weight: 230.2 Total weight loss: 13.2 lbs
Frank PizzoI don't think I've deadlifted but maybe twice all year so I can't say. Gripper strength is down slightly but I took them out of rotation because they aren't contested at the King Kong. However, I did manage a pretty good PR yesterday though...I lifted a 120 lb Inch replica at Andrew P's that I hadn't broke off the floor before, plus hubbed one of his 45's that stopped me last time I tried to lift it!

EJ Liveseythats a huge accomplishment

acromegamanAlmost finished it too. That last little bit is killer and it didn't help that I bent it off center.
Sep 26 2014 06:58 PM
Tim TWow that is awesome.
Sep 27 2014 10:08 PM
FYI - Hex handle grippers look cool, but they hurt like hell in the hand. Just sayin'
Chezalways looked that way.

Level 9 WD2 heslep style went down tonight, level 10 was close!
JoshWIts quite addictive and that's a strong level to be at! Ive given it a rest recently as im going to be maxing out and shutting the #3 soon but my best was level 14 but might have got level 15 as it was very close. As soon as I cert the mmo, will hit bending hard!

Sep 25 2014 01:35 PM
JoshWWant to cert whilst im still 18 too for added bonus haha!
Sep 25 2014 01:38 PM
Got up to Level 8 WD2 heslep style bend tonight, plenty more left in the tank for next time! Orange spring.
Big G8 in BB wraps is almost mine again. Need to toughen my fingers a little more.
acromegamanYa Beast! I'm working on a G5 in BBW and I'm getting a good wobble out of it so far.

Tim TThat is a monster bend. Go for it.

Decided to drop weight classes and started dieting on Monday. My goal is to drop to 205 from 243....wish me luck!
Frank PizzoThanks man, and good job to you too! I think we will both make a good addition to the 93k weight class!
Sep 17 2014 02:02 PM
Andrew PGood job Frank. I've been working on the same thing it's not a fun time.
Sep 18 2014 08:29 AM
Frank PizzoThanks Andy, and your right man...its definitely no fun but worth it in the end.

Following in suit of Matt Cannon, I will have an official AMA tomorrow on /r/griptraining starting 11AM CDT. Drop by and show some support or ask a question so more people from reddit's strength communities can see it... It's vitally important nowadays to know how to close a hand gripper properly.
Frank PizzoI don't have an account but I dropped by and checked it out and it looks pretty successful. Nice job Yori!

ElectronThanks Frank. I think a few of the people I've talked to there are interested in competing. Glad to have more of us joining the sport.

Grip, what else!?
GeraltI can think of other stuff but that wouldn't be very appropriate here on this board.But yeah, Grip is a good one.
