  1. Past hour
  2. The Last Gripmas Carol

    Sounds awesome, definitely need to get some more names and numbers on the NAGS list because when I check to see where I stack up, it can't be right. Will we need to do the NAGS qualifying stuff first?
  3. Weighted rolling thunder pull-ups?

    Has anyone ever tried this? I told the chiropractor who owns the gym about my interest in grip strength, and he suggested that I give it a try. This gym I just joined has all kinds of toys. An inch dumbbell, a circus bell, two rolling thunder handles, blobs, atlas stones, logs, ship chains, Bußgeld stone, and a lot more... a strength athlete’s playground.
  4. April Rolls - Wrist roller Challenge 4/8 - 4/22

    To anyone who thinks they can’t video without the correct equipment or a camera person, this is my super fancy recording set up. And would someone be so kind as to judge my fresh attempt below?
  5. 107 x 4 - 2 hands shallow Hub KP (griptopz)

    Thanks CEO of rows, inc. - I had to chuckle as someone asked me hours after I posted this(obviously, he had not viewed this) if I was injured:)
  6. Today
  7. 107 x 4 - 2 hands shallow Hub KP (griptopz)

    Outstanding lift!!!!
  8. The Last Gripmas Carol

    The events are numerous to say the least. Pretty much everything on the NAGS Top 50 list - FBBC List - Barrel Strength Leaderboards list - hopefully several of the Iron Mind items - and perhaps a few of David Horne's items. Rules will match up with each organizations equipment rules with NAGS rules as the default. I am typing up the entire format (pretty complex) and will post it before long. It will consist of a traditional 3 event contest (if you choose to enter this part) and a sort of "Record Breaker Contest" where you can make or advance your position on any of the various lists with each piece of equipment.

  10. My strength training log

    18/04/18 Evening: 1. mouth pinch (52 mm width): 71.1 kg * 20 reps within 60 sec -PB (13 reps + 7 reps - ONLY one grip reset)
  11. My training for the #3 cert

    Pendlay barbell rows, overhand thumbless : 6x6 92.5kg One arm barbell holds: 7x till almost failure with 60kg. First time doing these. I heard people say that farmers walks are the best overall forearm builders, so I tried it today and well, yeah, they may very well be right (altough I never walked during this). I'm looking to add about 10 kg each workout initially. What would be respectable numbers with these holds? Seems 110-120kg or so would be decent at least? I was inspired by 19kamau79 video of his 169kg hold. I am aware he is enormously strong though. Proper farmer walks with 40kg kettlebells, 3 laps. Easy. Hammercurls 28kg 5x10 strict form. The walks and The holds were very fun! I will definitely start doing these seriously from now on. Now rest 2-3 days before crush workout..
  12. Argh. Behind in the log. I worked out Saturday, Sunday and last night. I'll hit the highlights for Saturday and Sunday to make this quick. Saturday 4/14/18 Since my Achilles is much better, my PT said I can keep upping the load I put on it so I got in my first session with Napalm's Nightmare 2 3/8" handles where I did normal lifts from the ground like I would at nationals. Only Problem is that I forgot my chalk at home which definitely dropped me down a few lbs (I'm a super sweaty guy. Anyone at SJ4 can attest to that). I actually tweaked my left ring finger while doing these. Strange but its not an injury as it feels normal typing this but it was still sore the next day. I also hit standing overhead barbell press and worked up to 180 lbs for a set of 7 reps. I finished my workout by using Napalm's Nightmare for cable rows, lat pull downs and cable upright rows. I also hit some biceps and rear laterals. Sunday 4/15/18 Started the workout with squats and did 225 lbs for 3 sets of 8x. I'm slowly upping the weight on these since I haven't done any while my Achilles was healing. Feels great getting back into these. I also hit calf raises both standing and seated and hamstring curls. I did left grippers but it wasn't a great session. That finger tweak was bothering me and robbed me of some power. Thank god its better now. Wednesday 4/18/18 Bench Press 205 lbs - 8x 225 lbs - 6x 255 lbs - 4x 265 lbs - 3x 285 lbs - 2x 295 lbs - 1x. It went up but I wasn't happy with the speed. Tired tonight and I'm not pressing in the correct groove. Incline Bench Press 205 lbs - 5x 225 lbs - 3x 255 lbs - 2x Decline Hammer Strength Press 90 lbs each arm - 10x 135 lbs each arm - 10x 160 lbs each arm - 6x 135 lbs each arm - 10x - A short person used this right before us and I didn't realize I had to lower the seat until the last set. I knew the first sets felt strange. Skull Crushers with EZ Curl Bar and red band looped on the ends and under the bench 80 lbs + red band - 8x 100 lbs + red band - 2 sets of 6x - cool exercise Note: My buddy went for the gym bench press record for his weight class. They have a board with all the gym records listed. Unfortunately he was flagged for raising his butt off the bench. He has a bad habit of doing this even with light weight and I knew if he failed this would be the reason. Hes going to practice keeping it down for a couple weeks and reattempt.

  18. 107 x 4 - 2 hands shallow Hub KP (griptopz)

    I forgot about your haircut stories:) No wonder you kept going back!
  19. April Rolls - Wrist roller Challenge 4/8 - 4/22

    I did not try but I know my time would be bad. Jared made this wrist roller for me a time back and I can only do 50lbs so 120lbs would be nearly impossible. Starting June, I will be doing them on end of barbell
  20. Yesterday
  21. 107 x 4 - 2 hands shallow Hub KP (griptopz)

    Reminds me of the head massages they would give after hair cuts in the marines I told you about! That’s awesome! She’s a keeper!
  22. April Rolls - Wrist roller Challenge 4/8 - 4/22

    Do you not have the equipment or are you injured? Or did you try it and know you are over a minute?
  23. April Rolls - Wrist roller Challenge 4/8 - 4/22

    I would need an hourglass timer:) nice way of saying that I don't have that ability. However, cool thing about Gripboard is that one can utilize variety of grip movements, etc and I will be doing these going forward.
