Gripper cert from Steelbenders.org
 
Sorry about anything I said which sounds arrogant or disrespectful. I was very pumped up. I'm very humble and soft spoken in person. No disrespect intended.

Thanks everyone. I'm going for the GHP 8 cert next as soon as finals are over because that one is going to be tougher.

No need for apologies, Chez.... When you start knocking down goals, you can't help it. Nice work!

Thanks buddy. Plenty more goals to chase after. It never ends, but that is the fun part.

Thanks Tommy. Chris Rice rated it at 174.55 lbs and it feels exactly like that. I have been pretty freaking tired staying up late studying and taking tests so the first rep woke me up.

Setting reasonable goals is key even if they are micro goals!

 

When one stops setting goals, all progress will eventually cease! ;)

 

Great close and domination Chez! :rock

 

You are currently my favorite Gripper Monster!!! :bow

thanks dude. Last week I closed my 172lb COC #3.5 for 2 straight singles with the 1.5 inch ghp block and then missed by very little CCS. I think if I attempt it first, I can close it CCS. I'm giving it another shot CCS fresh pretty soon.

Thanks Mighty Joe! That is exactly what I do to keep myself motivated. I set small goals in my head and attack them one by one. I arrange gripper certs in order of difficulty and try to take them down in that order.
