Thank man. Looking forward to getting my hands on the MM2 and continuing to prep for the 3.5 cert
I actually competed in my first grip competition earlier this month. Vids: https://instagram.com/p/BY3HV_VBtpX/
Pinch grip is a relative weakness for me as my main focus is strongman but I am quite experienced with thick bar work as axel deadlift and overhead press are common events in Strongman.
Shatterer above is the only other person showing interest so far. I know there are others in the state that would be interested. Sorting out how to get them to come together is something that is a real challenge to me. I was hoping for a "build it and they will come" sort of deal. The strongman gym owner I approached told me he went down to train with Brian Shaw and asked him and Mike Burke if they would come to his gym in Carbondale for the event. He got a quick 'no' in both cases apparently.
It would be great to have you attend here in New Castle. I want to have at least three others to make it fun. I'll give it this coming week to see if others are interested.
Some soft tissue issues with the base of my left thumb yesterday. I even strapped it up for a bit. It feels a load better right now so it was pinch o'clock Two Hand Pinch
