I havent bothered weighing the blockbuster and carabiner but since 43.9kg was PR I wanted to know how much it was. Couldn't believe it was 1.6kg! Super happy.

    Volume/frequency for griptraining

    My grip gets worked everyday at work. But still do some from of grip training 3 days a week, On top of my sandbag, weighted calisthenics and kettlebells, I do some form of sledgehammer work, a weighted carry of some sort, towel rows, COC crushers, finger tip push ups (learning them), push up on olympic rings (not supported by straps, I have to balance them), and hangs/weighted hangs.. Just stared to incorporate one finger kettlebell lifts I do carries, hand grippers and sledgehammer training 3 days a week and everything else twice a week. I try to do yoga videos online, and anything I can do on my fingertips I do.... That being said, my hands and wrists get achy sometimes, so cut back once in awhile. Just lifting sandbags works my grip pretty hard...

    Don't know on that particular day but he said in a training video with Eddie Hall that his BW is around 200 kg.

    Volume/frequency for griptraining

    Concur. Changing it up, and a lot, really does help and promote higher training frequency. If you really think about it there is no excuse not too as there are so many available variants to choose from in regards to your hands and wrists e.g. crush; pinch; support; bend; twist; wrist flexed (cupped) or unflexed; supination; pronation; deviation; flexion; extension; iso-pause; speed; slow tempo; dumbbells; barbells; short bars; cables; machines; bands; etc.; etc.; etc. the list goes on and on. When it comes to grip/wrist (hands and forearms) training I usually classify my rep ranges as follows: >10 reps = strength work (extremely low reps) 10-20 = low reps 20-50 = moderate reps 50+ = volume work (extremely high reps)

    Volume/frequency for griptraining

    I agree with this approach. Good split of the days and what you are doing. I like it! This is similar to my mon wed fri split. I never thought to separate thick bar regular from rolling handle. That’s a good idea I may try. It’s always tough to include both in one thick bar day with how fast it burns out.

    Volume/frequency for griptraining

    I train grip 3-4x per week, but I try to train different things each day. I used to rock climb 3x per week too, so I've been training grip at this frequency for around six years now. More often than 3-4x times per week my elbow tendonitis starts to flare up. I know from rock climbing that if I worked on the same problem over and over ago day after day it would mess me up, so I would try and vary the routes and types of holds. Same applies to grip stuff: right now I'm training axle Monday, pinch Wednesday, grippers Friday, and rolling handle Saturday. Keeps things interesting and so far hasn't been wearing me out too badly. I think the important thing (for me at least) is that while I'm training grip 4x per week, I'm really only doing each type of grip once a week, which gives me enough time to recover. As far as volume, I've been aiming for lighter weight and more reps lately. A while back I saw @ClayEdgin posting on instagram about the volume training he was doing leading up to Worlds in Russia and it seemed like he was focusing more on his 8-10RM than his 1RM. Worked out pretty well for him. I've been trying to take a page out of his book and do 3-4 sets of 6-10 reps on whatever it is that I'm working on that day. Clay's own Rolling Thunder program is pretty similar but with even more sets. I haven't personally done his program, but I hear good things about it.
  9. Thanks to Jerri Larkin and all who helped with the Memorial Contest for Don. Don touched all of our lives in a positive way, and it was great getting together with friends and family to honor him. Don's grandson Ryan Mercie competed in the Contest and will become an excellent bender too. Don Cummings and Darrin Shallman performed very impressive after Contest Events, bending and one finger lifts. Taylor Wilson still recovering from surgery, had great looking pulls on the deadlift, Andy Pantke bent a bastard bar in ironmind pads in only 15"

    FNL TY Edgins

    To my knowledge there's a thread on this board stating "TY" brand edgins is the easiest of edgins. The hardest are the Triangle edgins. Which is the ones I always get from McMaster.

    NEW MEMBERS Introduce Yourself Here

    Hello everyone, my name is Joe. Ive been exercising for a few years now, but the last few months I've started focusing on my grip. I first got interested in grip strength because, everyone always talks about my grandfathers legendary grip strength, he was a mason, and there are a dozen stories about how strong he was. Anyways, I purchased the COCs trainer to 2.5. I was shocked I do have a good grip from working construction but I couldn't even close the 1. Unless I take a break from workout for a few days and let my hands rest. Anyways, My goals for next year is lever the 16lbs sledgehammer, bottoms up press the 70lbs kettlebell and close the #2.5 COC. I just try not to push my hands to hard because I need them for work. I look forward to learning a lot from everybody here.

    November 16, 2019 Before Supper Block 1. Haven’t squatted in a couple of weeks, tired, and rushed. I think I’ll just cycle “ASS” based squats for a bit. My sessions now are 90% grip and assistance so I’ll just keep the core movements and maybe minor assistance for now. SSB Squat wu to 120k x 3 x 8r Assorted grip; tips tester, 2-3/8” dumbbell, axle

    That looked even easier than some of his sub 730 lifts, totally insane. So psyched that he skipped the 3rd attempt, in that position it would be so tempting to go huge and risk injury.
  23. After MMA sparring this morning... Main workout 5x1 muscle snatch 5x1 front squat 5x1 clean & push press 5x1 back squat 5x1 partial deadlift Was lackluster in Rolling Thunder Story of my life, trying something I have done in a long time

    Hard Squats/Deads For Grip Routine

    Saturday 11/16/19 Squat- Everything is below parallel. 135 x 6 185 x 4 205 x 4 230 x 18, very easy, but I didn't want to go for 24-25. 255 x 1 280 x 10 315 x 2 I'm not even documenting DOH, my grip is shot at 356, will need to work more reps. Hookgrip Dead lift - 385 x 1, 415 x 1 (felt as easy as 405 weeks ago). C&P 135 x 2 singles, 145 x 1, 159 x 1, 169 x 1, maybe slight push, but the press was tough, very tired. Strict curls, 115 x 7 (last rep I really leaned back). One day I'm gonna get a 25 repper in.
