      Do blobs transfer to other grip very well?
    • AdamTGlass
      I own about 20 York’s and another 10 blocks of various sizes from half a 45 to 130.  Blob lift is it’s own unique challenge. There are no other Grip event that is exactly like it and I can’t think of an “if you can do X then you can lift a blob” I have seen guys lift a blob who can’t close a 2 or axle 300...I know guys who axle 450 who can’t budge a blob. I personally two hand pinch 4 days a week and some weeks I can lift 275 but can’t lift my blob50...🤔🤷‍♂️ All blobs feel unique in sense of texture. No two I have ever lifted are exactly the same. Usually the exact weight is different and in a pinch friction lift that matters. I have lifted blobs in 6 states and 3 countries- everyone’s were different.  It’s a very wide pinch lift on a sloped object. The sides will be different shapes inside to outside. Typically one side is easier to grab in than the other.  Ignore the constant talk of hand size. I’ve seen huge hands not lift them and little hands toy with them. No matter what the opinion is you are stuck with the ones you’re born with 🤷‍♂️ The best blob lifters I have met are Tanner Merkle, Jedd Johnson, and Wade Gillingham. All have not only a longer finger but a wide span from thumb to pinkie. All very strong one hand pinch lifters and plate pinchers.  Blobs are one of those things you catch or you don’t. Like grippers. Some people love them. Some hate them.  The first time I was able to put my hand on a real original York blob I thought it was impossible. Within 4 weeks easy to lift. It’s always like that - at first so hard but with persistence mastery.  My best lifts were 120 hex head , a York Farman at 54.5 with +15 lb loaded with a strap, and a mid shin blobzilla. My hands are 7 7/8” not small but not really large.  Are you in the USA? PM me if you are looking for one because I have more than enough to lose a few.

      Excellent vacation venue bro- what a view 👍👍👍👍
    • AdamTGlass
      At the AZ regional (bw 95 kg) I had 296 to my knees. 289 to full lift. I think if I would have saved a few lower lifts during the LMS I may have lifted the 296 and broke 301 off the floor to some height....speculative only of course...I also believe that pinch was best bw to weight pinch lift ratio of any contest done (1.38xbw) but only the records guys would know for certain.  I believe I’ll exceed 300 within 3 weeks when I get a 2 x 5 Saxon. I’ll get 300 on my 2.5 Saxon by next March (current best 283)  I own a swivel 2x4x6 Saxon set up which is not identical to a straight bar but is a pinch, top lift 340. Right now I’m about 330 on that set up with this elbow pain thing.  Aaron I couldn’t hang with your pinch snatches and clean. Serious strength 💪💪💪💪💪

      I hit 205lbs on a rolling thunder not long ago but today I lifted 140lbs for 20 reps. I’ve been going up and down in weight but I think for this cycle I’ll keep with the lower weight otherwise I’ll burn out too early. I need to get the blood flowing to my forearms cuz they feel permacramped

      I’ve been training on the rolling thunder as well now, it’s a current model. I have to say I find it incredibly rewarding. I want to hit 205lbs though right now I have no idea what my my 1rm would be, I just pick a weight and work on form and end up doing reps I guess, I do thumbless with my left for whatever reason. I love the Ironmind Rolling Thunder!!
