great job at the contest Anthony, you still did well on the hub even though you didn't focus on it so much.

Great numbers at the contest, Anthony!  Well done making the 74kg weight class too.

Thank you gentlemen!  The contest atmosphere is great, and it's awesome to have something to train toward.  I tacked off a big goal by making the 74k class, BUT I'm too skinny haha.  On to the 83!

Worked out legs and grippers last night...was a mediocre session at best.  Nervous system has to get readjusted to things since I took the week off before the contest.  I wanted to try squats and grippers out together to see what all the fuss is about....I didn't really see much of a difference in my gripper strength, but I was super gassed out from the squats LOL.  Maybe I'll try it again because sometimes the body just has to adjust to new stimulii.

Listen to chez, he doesnt kill himself on the squats when doing grippers :D
He is repping at maybe 70-80% and getting real warmed up and excited for grip :)

Yeah, like peter said...the stimulation is what works best. If it's a killer squat session, I'm spent.

Believe it or not, doing a few triceps sets works better than squats. Extensions with an EZ bar while standing works great...think it gets that pinkie side of the lower arm hot.

shoulder presses work the second best for me. Nothing beats squats for me but other big compound movements that don't tax your grip (no deadlifts for example) can be used as a substitute.

Oh please, Chez doesn't know the first thing about closing grippers :grin:

Interesting, you may be on to something here bob.  I need to give those a try with grippers!

Shoulder presses may be the better option for me since it's an easier set up in the house.  Thanks chez
