  2. 2 days prior to my last OSH grip contest and would like to take the time to Thank some Gripsport individuals. Late 2016 I was reeling from deaths in my family, addicted to alcohol and chewing tobacco. I saw a guy on YT doing grip stuff, in what seemed like a dungeon(turned out to be Jared Goguen) was intrigued- reached out to him via comment section and was welcomed open arms to his basement gym countless times to workout and try out his innovative, new products. Fascinating and complex man, I will always be grateful that I watched that YT video as I had never heard of "Gripsport". Mark Wechte

  5. https://youtu.be/6shz0pNHfqQ?t=1139 This is (reportedly) a CoC #2.5 and it's being closed like a complete toy by all around mutant Andrey Smaev. Has anyone ever seen a 2.5 being closed this easily before? To me this looks like at least #3.5 closing strength, and this is apparently the first time this guy has touched a gripper. Reminds me of Khaled Jashell destroying grippers on his first try. Admittedly, there is no hard evidence that it's a 2.5, but I fully believe it is because this guy does chin ups with 160kg added at 120kg bodyweight. It could also be an easy 2.5 and easy reps at low

  6. We always have a great time with the people that attend in Carbondale. The competition was sanctioned by Armlifting USA, GSI, and some lifts were eligible for the David Horne World of Grip records lists. We had a decent turnout despite two Wyoming Strongman competitors having to pull out due to a late-season heavy snow storm. Rogowski walked away with PR's across the board. Jeremy and I tied for the new Gold Bar top spot. I approved, I will hold the 105k ATB lift record and the ATB hold for time World of Grip world record. I failed in my quest to lift 400+ with the Axle and 300+ with the 2" ve

Inch Hold with coins / no bracing https://www.instagram.com/p/CNGvEIpAD00/?igshid=dlq78fgvilm5 Didnt post this under contests, because I just wanted to ask if people know what the best holds are without bracing or with bracing / other styles? Pretty sure I can push this time a bit higher. Also attempted a double old with the same rules, and it was akward as (bad word filter).

  12. For the life of me I Cannot tell if this is in jest or serious... so if it’s in jest then please forgive me for not catching on... but for a man to come on a Public forum and reveal his past demons he has dealt with and emerging stronger and in a better place for it gets a lot of credit in my book. There may be others here who may come across this who are also struggling with addiction Or are in a dark place of some kind. For them to see others who have emerged victorious from something destructive and having the guts to tell people gets a big thumbs up in my book...

No interest in the Gripboard cert at this time - maybe later on.

  19. It seemed as though this guy didn’t get much love from fans of the sport, or super heavy elite pullers. It was because of his odd looking left arm, no one wanted to give him any respect. I literally read comments in regards to him with people literally saying they refused to take him serious because of his odd arm. As if it was some luckily blessing.. but those simps should note his story. If you’ve never heard, when he was born the doctors told his parents his arm would be useless, and therefore need to be amputated. His father refused that nonsense. And specifically went out of his way to he

  22. OSH '21 Results OSH 2021 - Google Sheets Fun and enjoyed getting after it- I like 4 events better than 6! Big props to my son and his buddy who literally tried ALL of the items in the wrist medley- lot's of heart. Andrew lifted 2HKP WR for his age class and yours truly reclaimed Overall WR. David needs to watch and confirm both vids to be official. Look forward to tomorrow with family and gaining some weight:) I will post my Overall 2HKP video on my YT once it is official. Thanks to my grip buddies I truly appreciate it, Michael Thomas

  25. After almost 4 months off from bending due to an shoulder injury I had to try the Moose Bar from bendsportcanada.ca because the package arrived on friday. So did it in their brand new nylon pads for a cert. Nice Bar for sure and a hard one for this diameter and material! Shoulder is still not at 100% and it will take still a while.

  26. I have a Trellis already that I made out of stuff that I bent (those who have been to my house for Gripmas have no doubt seen it). Now the wife wants another larger Trellis for more flowers in front of the house. What I would like is to make a sort of "Benders Battlefield" one showing off bends from all over the country. Horseshoes - Medium and long bends - simple scrolls (flat) - various wrenches - hammers - you name it - I can incorporate it into "art". The harder they were the better it will show off the strength human beings actually have. So if you are willing please send me a bend o

  27. As many of you know, this book includes grip strength feats, and will soon be available in English- hopefully later this year. The following words are from the author: I have been working on a translation of The Kings of Strength, Edmond Desbonnet’s massive history of professional strongmen for over three decades. I am extremely happy to announce that the completed book is now at McFarland Publishing Company, and it will appear sometime later this year. A century ago, the barrel-chested strongman in his leopard skins, Roman sandals and globe barbell was a common performe

  32. For sure! Any info you want. In general they are just under 3”. Average probably 2.85” to 3”. The mandrel that the springs are made on can only fine tune the preload angle to certain increments. This effectively sets the eventual spread which is one of the major elements that determines the final rating as well. Of the choices we had between 2.5” and 3” we had to lean on the one that hit the numbers we wanted, and that was 2.85 to 3” spreads.

  33. Some video from Sumy Region Armwrestling Championship 2021. I am very happy that my apprentices, winners and medalists of King Kong Roman Dubovich and Dima Gumenniy performed well on tournament. Dima took two second places in the -70kg Juniors category and two second places in the -65kg Men category. And Roman - two first places in -70kg Juniors. My third recruit, Denis Sukhikh, became the third on the left hand in the open +80 Juniors category, despite the fact that he has been engaged in armwrestling only for two months and this was his first competition.

  35. So I have been fasting every other day since around November, lost a little over 15kg so far. Since I quit grippers and did Thickbar work mostly and some pinch, I have increased forearm circumference by around 1cm each arm, even while losing that weight. My crush strength seems to be stronger than ever too. That's interesting in my opinion.

  39. Nice work! My guess would be that smaller hands make the CCS closer in difficulty to TNS. My hands are 7.5, and my best TNS to date on a COC was a hard 2.5 rated 134 and on a RB (narrower spread) was one rated 138 -- while my best CCS close on a COC was my 3 rated 143 (have never been able to CCS my 145, 150, 153). And the CCS on 143 was harder for me than the TNS on 134. So that's only about a 5 per cent spread also. I am also getting interested in doing some more CCS because I am wondering whether I can try the Ironmind cert before they go back to live, it would be less imposing

  42. Fat gripz dl 120kg 3x1 **** Pinch 30kg 10x3 **** Wrist stuff **** Tried squeezing the grippers a little bit, It's looking promising. They aren't the point of the training I'm doing now, but of course they are in the back of my mind since the #3 still is the only goal I really care about, whether I pursue it anymore or not. All the thickbar stuff I have been doing has at least not made me any weaker, looks like I'm stronger actually. Looking at the fat gripz deadlifts my "general hand strength", if that even is a thing, is kinda low, so perhaps it really
