G'day everyone! My name is Matt and I'm from Australia. I've been doing Judo for about 15 years and started grip training about 8 months ago. I'm 6'1" and 180lb. I have really been enjoying grip sport and my goal is to certify on the Crushed to Dust challenge and compete when possible.
Currently my PRs are closing a CoC #1.5 (CCS, unrated), 70lbs on a homemade wrist wrench and 35lbs on a homemade (hockey puck) hub lift.
I feel many aspects of my training are slowly coming together. One thing I haven't worked out are the best methods for pinch training - I use my hub, a TTK and a 78mm pinch block (metal-coated). I've been making good progress on the hub and TTK, but seen minimal progress on the 78mm pinch block. I think it might be too big for my hand (if I hold my thumb and fingers parallel the gap is about an inch, noticeably narrower than my two training mates). Any guidance for pinch training would be greatly appreciated
