    551 @ 51 YO. 250 kg Deadlift

    You got about 10-15 kg on top of that, this went up like nothing. You have an interesting stance.

    What's the deal with blobs?

    Adam, thanks for the detailed answer and your offer. No, I'm not in the USA, if I was, I'd just buy one, and probably meet up with some of you guys to train together. I'm in a country where I'm the only person training grip in a sport kind of sense.

    i train SB it’s part of my sport. That’s the only use I have for a gripper now. They do not improve the important lifts results but will drag the numbers down.

    Thanks, Adam! I love the wrist component! 2 for the price of one! I hate regular pinch like the flask. Actually shocks my wrist when I set it down for some reason. (I’m thinking because it is stiff and stationary into the pin rather than free moving) . I do like euro and thumb blaster though because you have some freedom of wrist movement like the Saxon minimizing shock.

    I know you were quite fond of grippers before, did you quit doing them since it has low carry over and drain the grip too much for optimal progression on other exercises? Since you like competing and everything.

    Congrats on the first place for Team USA! You smashed it.

    What's the deal with blobs?

    I heard someone say that hands on the smaller side could even be beneficial when it comes to wide pinch since the tendons have to stretch out to their maximum to grasp the object so you get some extra power for that reason. Was in an old thread I think where.. Uh forgot his name, John mccarters(?) blob proficiency was discussed.

    Went through that myself for a few years. The last couple months is the first time they've felt decent in years. Thanks Dube!

    Do blobs transfer to other grip very well?

    What's the deal with blobs?

    I own about 20 York’s and another 10 blocks of various sizes from half a 45 to 130. Blob lift is it’s own unique challenge. There are no other Grip event that is exactly like it and I can’t think of an “if you can do X then you can lift a blob” I have seen guys lift a blob who can’t close a 2 or axle 300...I know guys who axle 450 who can’t budge a blob. I personally two hand pinch 4 days a week and some weeks I can lift 275 but can’t lift my blob50...🤔🤷‍♂️ All blobs feel unique in sense of texture. No two I have ever lifted are exactly the same. Usually the exact weight is different and in a pinch friction lift that matters. I have lifted blobs in 6 states and 3 countries- everyone’s were different. It’s a very wide pinch lift on a sloped object. The sides will be different shapes inside to outside. Typically one side is easier to grab in than the other. Ignore the constant talk of hand size. I’ve seen huge hands not lift them and little hands toy with them. No matter what the opinion is you are stuck with the ones you’re born with 🤷‍♂️ The best blob lifters I have met are Tanner Merkle, Jedd Johnson, and Wade Gillingham. All have not only a longer finger but a wide span from thumb to pinkie. All very strong one hand pinch lifters and plate pinchers. Blobs are one of those things you catch or you don’t. Like grippers. Some people love them. Some hate them. The first time I was able to put my hand on a real original York blob I thought it was impossible. Within 4 weeks easy to lift. It’s always like that - at first so hard but with persistence mastery. My best lifts were 120 hex head , a York Farman at 54.5 with +15 lb loaded with a strap, and a mid shin blobzilla. My hands are 7 7/8” not small but not really large. Are you in the USA? PM me if you are looking for one because I have more than enough to lose a few.

    At the AZ regional (bw 95 kg) I had 296 to my knees. 289 to full lift. I think if I would have saved a few lower lifts during the LMS I may have lifted the 296 and broke 301 off the floor to some height....speculative only of course...I also believe that pinch was best bw to weight pinch lift ratio of any contest done (1.38xbw) but only the records guys would know for certain. I believe I’ll exceed 300 within 3 weeks when I get a 2 x 5 Saxon. I’ll get 300 on my 2.5 Saxon by next March (current best 283) I own a swivel 2x4x6 Saxon set up which is not identical to a straight bar but is a pinch, top lift 340. Right now I’m about 330 on that set up with this elbow pain thing. Aaron I couldn’t hang with your pinch snatches and clean. Serious strength 💪💪💪💪💪

    Saxon bar is the best way to pinch big weights and build great wrist strength. This will be a great pay off Joe 🦞🦞🦞🦞🦞🦞
