    What is a good lift on the Sorenix Mini Hub?

    Yes I agree. I really think this one deserves a spot in the record books as it is a very different (smaller diameter) hub than the IM hub or barrel strength hubs.

    Colorful grippers

    Nope not any more the spring guy I had went out of business. Aaron just helped me liquidate the remaining springs I had.

    What is a good lift on the Sorenix Mini Hub?

    If john pulled that it has to be pretty close to the record since at his peak, he was one of the best hub guys in the world. Problem is, there may not be a record for it since its not as well know and used at the the other hubs like ironmind, world of grip, barrel strength etc.
  5. Man, I want to get a shot at lifting the Dinnie Stones at the Arnold. I'm not going to be able to get out to Scotland for years but I was wondering if they would have the replica stones at the Arnold.

    What is a good lift on the Sorenix Mini Hub?

    I emailed John M. about the Sorinex hub (see below). John: …Was wondering in your opinion what is a good (claw grip, not doorknob) lift on the Mighty Mitts Sorinex Hub? https://www.sorinex.com/products/mighty-mitts-hub-lift Thank you! Scott Johnson ------------------------ John McCarter Replied: Wednesday at 01:27 PM Hey, 6 years ago I pulled 81 lbs on the Mighty Mitts Hub. I do not know if anyone has pulled higher than that. I say 55-60lbs is a good working number. Here is a video attempt I did of the 81 lbs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c25FQcttTsE
  7. I think it might be the new Rogue Anvil Horn. It looks similar to the Ironmind horn but continues all the way to a point. It’s still unofficial I think, but it’ll be a record breakers style like the Inch farmers walk was last year.

  9. Never attempted or knew about them but 4” wide is definitely out of my power width. Anything bigger than 3” my pinch goes down significantly. Huge lifts Tanner and Adam.

    Question about padding & leverage

    This may be obvious too, but the less you use leverage, the more you use upper back strength. This may be not so obvious, and more of an individual thing for me. But with pads and hands farther out, your elbows end up together and you run out of movement with less of a bend in the bar (you are done with the first hit when you have nowhere to go with your elbows.) Putting pads and hands further on the bar, let's me get more out of the first hit, and even if I really struggle to get it started, it's a longer/bigger first hit. That heats the bar up more and leads to a faster bend overall if you can keep it moving. It makes the whole chain (wraps, hands, wrists) stiffer so when your elbows stop moving, the bar is bent further. So don't just accept that your kink is relatively strong, try to move the pads/hands further into the bar (especially with imps) and unless the bar doesn't move at all, you'll be in better shape after one hit. May be repeating myself a bit, but trying to explain it a few different ways.
  11. Amazing doesn't quite seem like the word to describe all of this! Well done fellas!
  12. @AdamTGlass and Tanner, Jan Todd told me they were doing an anvil lifting comp with the winner getting 1k at the Arnold. You guys may want to get in on that. Also, doing a dining stone hold with winner getting 5k.

    MMS versus CCS versus TNS

    I believe it was .281" when I measured it with my micrometer.

    MMS versus CCS versus TNS

    I should've mentioned that it is an old steel-handled #3. And 3.25" spread. Spring is #3 size and well before #3.5s were even thought of.

    6th man to bench press 700#

    All this talk of 700 plus pound benchers has got me thinking of one of my childhood powerlifting idols. Jim Williams had an official American Record of 675 lbs done in the 1972 AAU World Championships. The IPF was formed immediately after which finally made WR's a reality. Jim Williams had went on to unofficially bench press 720 lbs. done in front of the whole USA Weightlifting team and judges. I love Bill Kazmaier but it just pisses me off when he was given credit as the first man to bench press 300 kg in competition in 1981. Jim Williams was light years ahead of his time. He was the true king of bench press in my opinion. I was lucky enough to speak to him years back and he stated that he bench pressed a BARE MINIMUM 5 DAYS A WEEK! I asked him why so much because that went against everything I was ever taught. He then replied, "How often do you eat? Everyday right? What do you think would happen if you only ate once or twice a week? You'd barely have enough strength to raise a fork to your mouth if you ate like that. Same applies to the bench press. If you want to get better at it you have to train it all the time!" I Know this logic sounds crazy but it clearly worked for the man.

    @SqueezusAwesome comeback from surgery!!! Very glad to see this.

    MMS versus CCS versus TNS

    That’s my thought as well. But one can tell by the thickness of the spring comparing a 3 to a 4. That would settle that.

    MMS versus CCS versus TNS

    Agree. Mistakes happen and are very uncommon. I've seen many Tetting grippers with the wrong springs. It's the most common place for this problem. I've never seen an IM or GHP mistake, ever. I do remember the "Heartbreaker". For what it's worth, the hardest used #3 CPW has rated was a 1st gen that went 160.

    MMS versus CCS versus TNS

    Was going to ask that. What is the diameter of the spring wire on that one? Production errors do occur. Doesn't mean the quality control is shit, mistakes can always occur. I had a Tetting gripper stamped "SM" that rated 161 lbs. It surely was a production error, probably a GM or Elite spring.

    MMS versus CCS versus TNS

    What's more likely, that it's actually a 3 or a 4 that was stamped a 3? Is the spring the same dia as a 3? Terrible quality control either way.

    Question about padding & leverage

    Yeah, what wobbler said. For me, what worked best was putting more of the bar into the pads the thinner the bending wraps. So with IMPs the bar was about 2" in the pads. Double pads (fat pads!) I could put the bar about 1" in the pads.

    Question about padding & leverage

    I put my index fingers on the bar though, so my hands are a little but further in... some people put index fingers on the wraps.

    Killing it man. Glad you're healing up well.

    I haven't touched an axle since my surgery on March 27th last year. I would say things went pretty well.
