It's been amazing seeing Jon's progress. With his strength abilities coupled with his attitude and his training insights, its no suprise to me to see him pulling off world class grip feats this early in his grip career. I think he's PR'd everytime he's came over to train in one area or another. Nice to see you pull off the 45's bro. I know you've been wanting that one !

thank you guys for the kind words... huge thanks Kody for all the mentoring - especially with the pinch (which until this point was a struggle of mine)... without your expertise, i don't think i'd be anywhere close to where i am

Very nice dude.  Strong pinching.  

Thanks Mike

 

How did you train for this broski?

 

Lots of different widths and angles.. Honestly, my pinch was a huge weakness till i got my own euro this summer... i just love experimenting with the thing - i never just lift it in a workout... i do all kinds of things with hand positioning too... i just now think i've figured out my own way of gripping the surface

 

Also, getting to train with the reigning king of pinch Kody Burns helps a lot too.. the guy is just an encyclopedia of grip knowledge and its crazy to see the things he does so easily

 

Welcome to the Hundo Club! Nice!

Thanks Richard!
