Hello, I am 44 years old. I live in germany and work as a security guard. I have lifted weights for over 30 years. A serious shoulder injury forced me to a lay of for over a year. I can' t compete in powerlifting any longer. I switched my focus to grip strength. Before the lay of I could close the COC # 2 with both hands. At the moment I am still able to close the # 1,5. My goal is to rebuild my overal strength and work on closing the # 3. I hope I will learn a lot about grip strength from grip board.com.
