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

    I'm gonna test the 170 and work up if I can. That 250 bar looks like a Beast!

    I 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!

    Almost finished it too. That last little bit is killer and it didn't help that I bent it off center.

FYI - Hex handle grippers look cool, but they hurt like hell in the hand. Just sayin'

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.

    Thanks 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.

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