I don't have much traffic at my little gym but I have had at least 3 guys walk in and lift 50# York Blobs (not Fatman) off the street. All were big working type guys with big hands. Picked it up - put it down like what's the big deal". Same guys (and more) have closed my #2 having never grabbed one before. We have lots of construction workers, mechanics, tree trimmers etc around here. Those guys have strong hands on them.
Yeah unfortunately our closing date on our house got moved from Dec 9 to Nov 29th so I will not be able to attend unless there is some miracle that we get settled in by then but there is slim to no chance. Really sucks because I always look forward to it and I feel really strong on 2HP.
Way to make things accessible to the common man Gil! The try beofr you buy technique so to speak will definitely whet peoples grip appetites! As soon as I tried Grip I was hooked. It’s a great way to expose people to this great sport!
I just saw your post about the grip get together you had at your place. Wish I would have seen it, but I just started getting back into grip, and haven't been on the board much. Do you have facebook? I'd love to know about future events, as I'm pretty close.
