    Yeah, but he's wearing elbow sleeves. That's like totally cheating. I'm pretty sure half the guys on the GB could beat him if he competed truly raw. Back in reality... holy crapolla! I believe Terry Hollands does almost all of his axle continentals DO too. These are some big bad men.

    Just throwing this in here for the one's that haven't seen this. Relative newcomer to professional strongman Iron Biby clean and press axle at 190kg/418lb with a double overhand grip! Might be very near the top of grip strength in strongmen. Pretty good pressing power too...🤔

    Guys, yet again. No drug talk here on the GripBoard. I don't want to have to close this thread.

    This is most likely not true since how well you respond to steroids has alot to do with androgen receptors and a few other factors. Genetics are more complicated. Some guy could grow massively while being natural yet only see small improvements when on gear. And another guy could be a near no responder to weight training and then absolutely explode when on gear. Due to this the top 10 guys would probably be completely different people if there was drug testing. With maybe an exception or two.

  10. Your bending strength is coming back quickly, you are killing some huge steel already. What type of wraps are you using for these bends right now? How are the hands holding up with the high volume of bending you have been doing?

    Standard Deviation, Hey nerds

    If your ratings data is already in excel, and your ratings for each gripper are all in one row or column, you can just use the formula to calculate it. =stdev.s(highlight your row/column). This will give you the standard deviation of the sample and it calculates it based on the sample size that you provide. So if you have 200 ratings of CoC3's, then it will calculate it based on the sample size. something like this.... All the gripper ratings here are randomly generated numbers... just for demonstration: Gripper Ratings Data Coc 3 GHP 7 157 146 150 147 153 152 146 149 150 143 152 142 138 154 164 151 150 144 146 146 166 142 153 142 163 150 143 152 144 143 160 154 Min 138 142 formula for min is "=min(B2:B19)" Max 166 154 Formula for max is "=max(B2:B19)" Mean 151.8 147.1 Formula for mean is "=average(B2:B19)" Sample size 18 14 Formula for sample size is "=count("B2:B19") Standard Dev. 7.90 4.20 Formula for standard deviation is "=stdev.s(B2:B19)"

    This falls in line with the point i made the other day about the masses being in general disbelief that anyone can genuinly be stronger than them. It is a sore loser mentality. And its also borderline narcissism to think that the only people who can beat you juice. the truth is, if your truly strong AF, like many are under the illusion they are, it wont matter what someone takes who is competing against you. Gil mentioned Brzenk earlier in the thread, and i will build further on his example. Im almost 99.9% sure that Brzenk never took any enhancers. Dont even think he got near 230lbs in his 30 year run of being the best, even when he was at his biggest. And on that same note, im almost 99.9% sure that most of his heavier counterparts WERE on stuff. So what does that tell you about how much it really matters vs REAL strength? if you truly are strong, your opponents taking enhancers wont matter. and even if there were tests, the same guys would still end up top 10 in WSM. Just like bodybuilding, these guys are blessed with genetics others dont have. i know Bills stance on performance enhancing debates, and i can see why he doesnt allow it. Because the debates typically end up with VERY hurt feelings. maybe if it went respectful, Bill could tolerate some normal discussion?.. id like to make a small but respectful point before it gets shut down that usually goes unsaid.. what about masters competing against 20 somethings in this sport?.. i can guarantee you, based off science, that older competitors suffer heavily vs. much younger opponents based on the declining testosterone via their age. And nobody steps up for those guys around here. But why? The truth is, because varying test levels dont matter as much as most insist. and im not talking like a “little” difference in test levels between older and younger test levels. Im talking like double and even triple the amount of natural testosterone levels between a 20 year old and a 45 year old. As science suggests. so on that note, back to strongman, why is it that the guys you see dominating WSM are usually well over 30 years old? When testosterone decline really begins to take its toll vs. early 20 year olds with much higher testosterone. I mean if we wanted to get REALLY ridiculous, we could ban anyone under the age of 25 due to skyrocketed test levels naturally vs. older counterparts. I mean where does the excuse making end? just a thought.

    Just another data management package. I use it on my day job. It’s easy to make nice-looking charts in.

    I appreciate the feedback. Since this is extra work, I likely won’t chase it too hard.

    So far I was only taking the time for sample sizes of 100+. Which, is only a handful of the most popular grippers.

    True! But it is a weird catch all that doesn't even allow us to discuss caffeine! On the bright side, as long as there's no discussion, we won't have anyone pointing fingers as nothing is explicitly disallowed in competitions.

    8/20/18 - 7 hr sleep 4PM Mindful Mover - functional movement screening - Spent lot of time recording different movements for strength (bent arm and straight arm), mobility, flexibility. I hired a guy to train me for the next 6-8 weeks. We'll see how this goes.

    30” 5/8 A36 braced bend

    Nice job! Like Don said, I'd use some type of protection on the knee (if you go this way). I have messed up knees and can do the "knee kink" 'till about 26", then it becomes too painful, even with padding. All of the stages looked good. Once you get to a certain length, you gotta get mad and just attack it. Of course steel varies, but I found that right around 25" is when things really start to hurt and to get past transition stages, you gotta amp it up a notch. After watching your video, another way to position the bar on the sweep is to angle the bar downward on the outside, which will give you more leverage, especially if you don't have a huge wingspan. Doing this helped me out a lot in this way, not having naturally ideal leverages.

    Larratt vs Cadorette

    Matt’s incredibly strong and talented. I remember a few years ago when I was training with him everyone thought he was a one trick pony, flash pin guy. It’s just nobody caught him for a long time for him to bother fighting with. Now with another 25# he’d be amazing.

    Standard Deviation, Hey nerds

    Standard Deviation would not be that helpful, its just average amount of deviation from the mean. Smaller numbers generally mean a more consistent process, with a SD of 0 being no variation. So.... on grippers that you don't have a large sample size (GHP 10 for example), you would likely see a higher SD and people might be all like "Whoa, them GHP's got some variation" when they really don't, we just don't have enough data. With the information you already provide (Average, Min, Max, and the sample size), those of us that really care can figure out the info we want. Perhaps you could publish the "mode" for each gripper, that would tell us which rating you get the most. It can also help predict a shift in ratings. It might be interesting to break out the ratings by the year too. Everybody knows that grippers are way harder now than they were 5-10 years ago 😝
