    Maybe all the Shaw grip threads should be about Licis

    Aaron @acorn made farmer's handles with the handle being a rolling handle. It would be perfect for scaling down for gripsport.

    Easy, we politely show them the exit.

    How many total can close the #3?

    I don’t know if the reverse is true. Like if one did grippers first before ever training DO deadlift. If they lacked the body power, it wouldn’t matter how strong the grip was from grippers. But the strength from DO deadlifts would definitely translate to gripper strength.

    Goes against the “only thing grippers are good for is grippers”

    Double overhand deadlifting strength is a great indication of potential for closing grippers. It’s a great training exercise for it. If someone can DO deadlift 500 or above, that’s a great indicator they can at least smash a number 2 TNS in most cases.

    I have done TNS/NS with all 4 different #3s that I have ranging from 143, 146, 150 and 154. I have an unrated one as well which is the hardest one.

    Would be fun but too many people would gripe about the amount of weight used.

    Word. Too bad he got hurt. Killed him on loading medley.

    Such a great event, would love to have this at grip comps. Obviously on a smaller scale.

    How many total can close the #3?

    Ill take your bait. Numbers mean nothing? This whole post is a hypothetical question looking for numbers. Maybe you need to reread the OP. Because what I read was how many in the world can close the #3. Not china, not Russia, not India. THE WORLD. There is roughly over 3.5 billion MALES on the planet. There we can probably break that down further into separate age brackets but that could take all day. You assume that millions of people are weak as shit with their hands or just in general, also illogical. Theres enough anecdotal evidence as well as video proof that more and more people that didnt even know gripsport was a thing roll up and hit a elite feat. Guys who simply work, not exercise. Lifting inches, blobs, and crushing grippers. Thats not taking into account the millions of men and women possibly moving huge weights unseen. But think small. Because out of 7 billion people, only a few hundred can possibly do something worth a damn. I can’t for the life of me comprehend how out of MILLIONS of people you believe only a few hundred can crush a 3. Thats like saying out of a million military aged males only a few hundred can do a few pullups. Grippers are one the most accessible grip implements and most likely the first thing people touch. Theres a huge chance that out of those Millions a good portion of those are already familiar with the grippers, used them or plan on using them.

    Licis is your 2019 WSM!

    How many total can close the #3?

    Lol yes, way stronger. 1% is a large number when we're talking about large numbers of people like there is on the planet. If you can close the #2 then you probably already have a stronger crush grip than 1% of the population. There's many different challenges that not many people can ever achieve, not even if they try. I would say that there's definitely millions of people who could potentially close the #3 gripper, if everyone was trying to do so. Because it's not a super technical thing like doing a 9-dart finish or doing a maximum break in Snooker, or doing 10 strikes in a row in Bowling etc.
  16. 225 on rolling thunder. 215 on the 2.5" crusher with the cross-bar rule. V-bar lifts, I don't know. 400 on axle with tight spin-lock collars (at least 200 kg if they're not tight). 100 on 1HP (a bit less if the object has a slope like the Gold Bar). 75 on IM hub. 50 on shallow hub. 225 on 2HP like the Euro and Flask. COC#3 or equivalent gripper with CCS. 180 lbs+ RGC with 20 mm block (standard spread on the gripper). Level 18 on Vulcan gripper with 20 mm block. Sledge hammers, I don't know. Strict lift of Inch DB replica with no rotation or tilting of the bell. 20 kg plate curl.

    At the very least, everyone can agree that if you can close a #3, your crush is stronger than 99% or more of the population

    Licis running away with it. Just Stones to go. Thor and Shaw were pretty much eliminated after 1st event (loading medley) where they finished 7th and 8th respectively. Here's the scores after event 4.

    Yes dip out man but don't call people narrow minded in that case. You simply don't want to look at facts. Numbers mean nothing. With that reasoning, China and India would be best at exactly everything. And guess what, they're not.

    Thanks Mike, I’ll keep plugging away.

    No one said ALL 3 billion of them. Damn. But your numbers are comically small. And you don't need to be in some sort of physical prime. Again, you do you, Mr 500 DL but cant tns consistently so let me project that weakness on everyone else. Theres enough proof on this board and elsewhere that shows you dont need to be WSM or someone with 40 years of gym experience to close a 3 or lift an inch. Im not buying what you are selling. Before I get moderated again, I’m dipping out.
  22. Considering in the last 2 years of nationals, no one has done over 220 on 2HP besides Jedd in the euro, I would say it’s a tad high for a qualifying lift. But as far as the other lifts? All are fine in my book. But if you are getting qualifying lifts from actual stats, then that is as objective as you can get as far as what’s what.
  23. The qualification weights were very much based on data in the gripsport.org database. There are 25 Americans who have contest lifts of 220 lbs or more in the Euro Pinch. So if 220 isn't the right threshold, I don't feel it's very far off. In any event, there's nothing preventing the lists from being revised if enough people feel they should be.

    No. Just make sure you have a good grip with the thumb. It's key. You aren't allowed to wrap your fingers over the thumb like a hook grip. It would take some massive hands to do that effectively anyway.

    How many total can close the #3?

    I'm telling you that, while there's around 3.5 billion males on earth, not all of them can be taken into consideration because of their age. How is that difficult to understand? DOHDL has a lot to do with grip strength. If you're strong in that exercise you will normally have much better success with grippers on your first try, than someone who does not lift DOH at all.
