EJ LiveseyWhy not send him a PM?

my 2" V bar 203 lbs lift is official now. I'm very excited about this. Next goal 225 lbs.
JoshWAwesone stuff Evan, you just need to try bending and then you would have tried most grip/wrist strength lifts!
Jun 27 2015 03:08 AM
Frank PizzoCongrats, that's a very solid lift!
Jun 27 2015 07:11 AM
Evan Raftopoulosthanks Josh! I have to try bending at some point, but I have to sneak the nails in the apartment without my wife noticing:P all this grip stuff is driving her crazy I think.
Frank, thanks brother!

Tried my hand back at grippers after 2 weeks off due to pain and was few mm from my #145 MM set. Feel better knowing what strength my grippers are and what I need to bridge the gap!
JoshWHope you are crushing grippers like its your job soon buddy.
Jun 27 2015 03:11 AM
radders112Think I've plateau on grippers now as that was my main grip strength. So it was interesting to know how far I could get just by doing that! Gonna try and mix it up and do some RT and hub work during the week and dedicate 1 or 2 sessions to full grippers. Time is something I wish I had more of!

So want to get a gripper in the 133-140 range, what's the best option; (1) hope for a low #3 (2) a high #2.5 (3) file a #2.5 to the range?
radders112Great options Geralt and Frank, i would prefer to have a complete gripper in that range compared to a filed one but I will see what I can do. Thanks Guys!!

radders112GHP's are on my wish list and hopefully get the 6 & 7 by August

Injured myself in last grip contest. Oh man, this takes time to heal. Distal joint of right thumb cant handle any pressure and had to put a splint in it. Also feeling some symptoms in left thumb as well, maybe from overtraining the half-a-penny lift. Just a warning for anyone, dont overdo training. Being able to use the thumb separates man from monkey :)
Jörg KeilbachThats realy bad. Have you seen a Dr.?

HAMANo. Im hoping it is only tendonitis. Cant do much about it but rest and take anti-inflammatory medicine.

COC#4 arrived from Cannon powerworks. Rated 216lbs so it should remind from my firt try with number 3. Will make attempt later today.
FJMAs expected it is a proper beast. Was surprise that i could move handless little bit.
Jun 19 2015 03:26 AM
Evan Raftopoulosit seems that coc 4s are rated higher than average recently, mine is 218
Jun 19 2015 10:09 AM
Parts have arrived for my RGC setup. Like a kid at Christmas
radders112Cheers, can't wait take my grippers for a test run
Jun 16 2015 05:42 AM
GrindNice, do you have some pics?
Jun 16 2015 08:17 AM
radders112Once I have it setup and rated some grippers I will post it in the 'RGC in the UK' thread. Want to make sure it works
Jun 16 2015 11:25 PM
Waiting for my Elite gripper to arrive that I bought from CannonPowerworks :rock
JoshWRated? Picked up two rated grippers myself!
Jun 12 2015 09:58 AM
Simon NoreviActually not. Had money precisely so I could buy the gripper.. (Life as a student hehe) But will pick up more grippers from CPW that will be rated in the future when I got the money. But my rating device works good now when I have the correct width on the strap.
Jun 12 2015 10:36 AM
JoshWI could only do it as its my birthday soon, being a student sucks haha. I thought I may as well as it only costs like £2 extra per gripper which is like me buying a can of coke from the shops!
Jun 12 2015 10:40 AM
So chalked up my rolling thunder and managed to pull 67.5kg (148.8lb)
radders112Sure will be, you feel it in the belly of your forearm massively
Jun 10 2015 03:43 AM
Evan Raftopouloslet's do a crushed to dust race you guys :)
Jun 10 2015 09:56 AM
Jun 10 2015 10:07 AM
Just ordered a rated super master and a rated GHP6. Hopefully arrives on the 24th june for my birthday!
JoshWThey say June's the best time for a birthday..at least that's what I think!
Jun 09 2015 12:30 PM
Evan Raftopouloslet me know when these arrive so I know how much time I have for the MM0 :P
Jun 15 2015 09:45 PM
JoshWI give you a month before I try the #3 again so plenty of time ;)
Jun 16 2015 12:53 AM
Finally back to my pre-injury strength levels with grippers, took about a month to bounce back but it feels good. 102lb 20mm block-set happened and 106lb MMS happened today.
Jared GoguenYikes! I mean I took like almost to months off from grippers, and took about a month of training to get back to where I was. Damn dude that's a long recovery, I guess I was kinda lucky after that fall.
Jun 09 2015 08:11 AM
EJ LiveseyIt's tough sport sometimes. But we break so we can get stronger. Glad you're back.
Jun 09 2015 08:15 AM
Andrew PGlad your better.
Jun 09 2015 07:18 PM
So managed to pull #138 on the rolling thunder and #24 on the hub both without chalk
radders112Keep my eye for for you buddy
Jun 09 2015 07:38 AM
Jared GoguenChalk is huge on the the Hub!
Jun 09 2015 07:50 AM
radders112Thanks for the tip Jared, might give them both a go again tonight
Jun 09 2015 08:08 AM
