    Only if JT can make it. If that doesn't happen then we can find something to make one

    6" Ironmind Red In One Ironmind Pad

    7" shiny is way harder than 6" red. First hit the red went past 30 degrees easily. But with the shiny bastards I only get 5-10 degrees on the first hit.

    Pinch grip improvisation

    I started by using 2 - 20k plates smooth sides out on a loading pin. Works well depending on the plates.

    Fortunately, today you don't have to be. You can always exchange money for goods like a grip device.

    Pinch grip improvisation

    I threw this together. I'm not a master welder and machinist like every grip guy seems to be but I'm not too bad with dead trees. Not that strong but neither am I so it gets the job done. I modeled the curve after a 45lb plate.

    Jon Vance Grip Log

    Yesterday 20 snatches of 135... really wish I remembered the time but I don't. Then mile road run in 6:41 Today clean and jerk 185 for 10 in 4:30, wanted ten more at 195 but missed rep seven at the 6 min mark... I have Defenders Challenge tryouts early this coming week so I didn't want to overdo it Grippers, CCS 136 right for ten reps in 6:30, 125 left took a min longer to get there More heavy CCS SB work, trying to crush it down under 16mm on the 184
  11. I did a fun scroll today, one of my favorites that I have done. I will attach a photo of it. I also did 3 FBBC cert videos. Not huge goals but ones I have not done yet. Here are the videos.

    Are you still going to have a flame thrower?

    This is what I trained for....

    Ok. Last weekend I also tested thick bar... bad idea. Didn't really pull what I wanted. 2.5" crusher ended up at 136.5, which is a PR. I also managed 87.8 on Wrist Wrench... was hoping for 90+. Moving on... Monday 6/18 Bench: 185 - 5 X 5 DB Rows: 100 - 5 X 8 APA @ 2.125": 145.3 X 3, 5, 7, 5, 5 then 155.4 X 5 Lots of volume, feeling out a new width. I think I like it. I spent a lot of time using the band and the 2" climbers pinch to try to supinate my hand during the last block. With 2-Hand, I try to supinate both hands like I'm trying the bend the APA in my hands. This really seems to help drive the thumbs into the surface. Gold Bar: 55.7 - 4 X 5, X 3 CP: 15 - 4 X 20 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wednesday 6/20 Squat: 135 X 5, 155 X 5, 165 X 2 X 5 Mobility is not great so I'm giving low bar a chance. I can get good depth but ATG is not going to be possible for a while, not sure if my knees will handle it either. 2.5 Crusher: 75 X 2 X 5, 112 X 2 X 5 OHP: 95 X 10, 135 X 5, 145 X 3 135 felt easy, 145 pretty much stopped me. I tried to make sure to leave at least 2 reps in the tank, so I had to stop at 3 reps. Wrist Roller: Revers X 6 2" Crusher: 112 X 5, 135.3 X 2 X 5 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Saturday 6/23 Conventional DL: 225 X 2 X 5, 315 X 5 singles, 295 X 3 singles Pulling DO, grip is not causing any issues. My upper back on the other hand.... wants to round over ever so slightly. Something is missing... need more upper back work. Grippers: Right MMS: 118 X5, 128 X 5, 148 X 3 singles Grippers: Left MMS: 118 X 5, 122 X 5, 128 X 1 Silver Bullet Right: - 10lbs + 148 CoC3 X 2 second, X 7 seconds Silver Bullet: Left: - 10 lbs + 131 CoC2.5 X 1 second, X 7 seconds Not an actual Silver Bullet, its one I fashioned out of the handle from a Heavy Grip brand Gripper. I think it will work fine for now. I also managed to close a 148 GHP 7 for 3 single MMS closes. These are some very exciting times. Also made this neat device:

    What steel should I get (braced bending)

    Thanks, yes I will add in some isometrics to my routine.

    Pinch grip improvisation

    I liked the way you made the euro pinch device out of your loadingpin, thank you for the idea!👍 but I would also ditch the bumper and put 2 steel plates together with flat sides out. If you dont have that, the bumper is better than nothing👍 I bought the "Industrial Grip Strength volume 2" DVD from Adam T. Glass. World class pincher. In the film he explains that it's good to use all kind of different thicknesses and different surfaces to pinch on.

    Ditch the bumper and put 2 steel plates in the pin with the flat sides out. As you get stronger you can add weight or get larger plates. Or you can just buy a euro

    Pinch grip improvisation

    Hey guys, I made something that resembles an Euro pinch device. It works fine, I've never trained my pinch seriously, but now I'm gonna use this. I just have a dilemma, since the blue surface that I grip is a bumper plate, which only has about 7-8 centimeters of flat surface that I can put my fingers on, the grip on it is very shallow, about 50% of my finger length is on the surface, my palm doesn't touch the surface at all. So my dilemma is should I make a wooden plate, that's completely flat or should I just keep training like this? Does it make a big difference when you have your whole hand on the weight compared to just the fingers? I managed about 45 kg for 5 sets of 5 easily. Thank you all.

    General strength and grip training

    Today's training (23.6.2018.): High bar squat: 92.5 kg x 10 x 5 all time volume PR Reverse hyper: 60 kg x 15 x 5 Improvised 2H Euro pinch: ~45 kg x 5 x 5 Ab chair: 9 plates x 8 PR; 4p x 12 x 2 High volume squats are a nightmare, but it's getting easier and easier mentally, still brutally hard on the body. I'm starting my pinch training, with an improvised pinch device.
  19. Hey guys. This week has been a rough one for me. I scratched my left cornia, witch hurt like a mother. Then I finally decided to give up smoking weed and drinking. Maybe you can't tell from my videos that I had a problem, but I do. I haven't been able to sleep more than an hour at a time and I have been sweating/ throwing up a lot. It really sucks, but it will be worth it in the end. I'm sure my bending progress is going to slow a bit until I get back to normal. I guess I just wanted to see if anyone else has gone or is going through this. This isn't my first detox either, my last one was a 100000000000 times worse.

    New adjustable gripper came in

    I want to have a well-rounded grip. I train plate pinched every now and then, do rolling thunder one arm lat pull-downs, and then grippers. My focus is grippers, but how much of the other stuff can I do in a session without overdoing it and being in pain the next morning? Would something like this work? Week 1- grippers And plate pinches Week 2- grippers And hub lift or thick bar training Week 3- grippers And back to plate pinches etc

    What steel should I get (braced bending)

    Like Don said, just keep hitting and working it, getting the reps in. The leg crush is painful no matter what you do or technique you use to position. The body will start to adapt over time, and it will become less painful and more fluid of a movement.

    Löddeköpinge Grip Challenge XXI (2018-06-30)

    Good luck to both of you.
  24. Fist of Fury

    What steel should I get (braced bending)

    Yes between the legs. I've tried against the chest also but it seems harder to get it all the way with that technique?

    What steel should I get (braced bending)

    What technique are tou using for the crushdown? Leg crush?

    My training for the #3 cert

    It totally depends on the individual. Tim Struse (MM7) trained grippers three times a week. So you can train often even when you are at a very high level. As you get to a higher level you definitely need to train smarter though and recovery (active) is very important.
  27. Hopefully

    My training for the #3 cert

    Yeah, it's frustrating, I have heard of people needing two weeks to perform again even. It feels like you lose strength when you rest so long but in fact it's the opposite. Tough mentally though.. And you too!
  28. Fist of Fury

    What steel should I get (braced bending)

    Ok, I will do so.
