  5. I haven't seen anyone repping the Millennium strict @Mywor yeah or I got it wrong again? . Carl did a single and now Khaled did for easy 3. Wow. This was done on Friday September the 25th 2020. Two days ago. He did little bench, deadlifts and should press prior to grip. He then warmed up by lifting the 172 pounds Inch. Then comes the Millennium for reps. Notice the controlled lowering. He attempted Millennium trainer for reps, same but with added 20 pounds. CoC 2.5 closes for reps. Inch plus blob curl for reps. 20 sledge hammer lever. 2 hand pinch. TTK. Fatman for reps and two fingers. Smaller

  6. Every year I try to do a Birthday challenge -this was done a couple weeks ago - done within a 5 or so hour window. One of those magical days that only happen once in a great while. Not done in the order shown here - this was just the way i wrote the list out. No video - done solely for myself - any doubters are welcome to come work out with me anytime. 72nd Birthday Challenge Goal Result Weigh in around 200# on my birthday 200# 197.0# Body Fat around 10% 10 to 12%

  8. Wasn't able to quit grip training this time either. However this time it was actually really close. I basically haven't trained anything serious since march. I've tried some gripper closes a few times but I don't think I've closed my 156 rated #3 more than twice in total since febuary. Done some pinching and actually managed to set a new PR on my wide pinch block but that's about the only grip training I've done. Unfortunately I injured my wrist on reverse bending a few weeks back and it's still healing. So I was pretty happy with todays result when I was able to close a 158# rated grippe

  12. So I finally got the time to train again. I trained Khaled on reps with no max last time with various grip implements. So today we met again. After Khaled Awa worked for 14 hours today with no rest and little food (Sep 9th 2020 @ around 10:15 PM Dubai time), he came to my place to train. He still had a little elbow pain from Armwrestling. I will fix it for him. We warmed up then we deadlifted up to 180 KG sumo; nothing serious. Then benched up to 140 KG albeit he needed little help as his form sucks. He barbell should press up to 90 KG for 3 reps for 3 sets. Then 50 KG dumbbells 5 reps each ha

  14. History is about to be made as Stephen Anderson has stated intentions to sign up for the MM9! Many years ago, Warren made MM9 and MM10 prototypes for the GripBoard. We chose Pro grippers with 5/16" and 1/4" mounts respectively, based purely on specs. Those grippers have never been used nor shipped to anyone. Now that Stephen is ready to go, we took a closer look at the grippers we received years ago. The Pro MM9 is a colossal monster. It is in no way a feasible jump from the MM8. Warren also erroneously stamped it with the "9" upside down versus the "MM" so it actually looks like "M

  15. That thing is a FREAKIN BRICK man. I know all of the higher level grippers are. I will be sending it to Matt tomorrow and he will clean and oil it up. I never thought I would have to take it out which is why I had not sent it to Matt. Sitting next to it was the MM10 by the way!

  18. Sun (8/30) OK, I wasn't really planning to do any more of these, but routine kicked-in as Sun(day) turned into Sunday evening and I "wanted" 🤪 to do another Red Nail. I wasn't feeling that great either, but told myself to just finish-out the month of August. I really think this needs to end at 10 years but am having mixed feelings about stopping. However, with all of the neck issues I have been having the past 1.5 years, and never really having the chance to heal things up after all of this time, I really think stopping would help me overall and help alleviate a lot of the chronic iss

  19. They aren't replacing my hip until November 3rd. So I'll be competing up at Jedd's if the pain isn't too bad. Haven't trained grip since before last year's King Kong. Plan on going in cold like I used to.

  20. DAY 100! Breakdown below... Once again a single nail so I could say I bend something. Bastard in IMPs. Here is an update pic of dead nails. First row was 1-50days. Here's a comparison. Significant improvements in strength, endurance and less of a need for wraps. It'll be interesting to seen what the next 50 days bring. Double Overhand 1-50 51-100 60d 58 7 Red (total) 42 69 Bastard (total)

  21. Unfortunately, I've been in a holding pattern/recovery. Right index has been a pain...literally. Friday Bastard in 2/3 IMPs. Saturday Bastard in 1/2 IMPs. Sunday Bastard in 2/3 IMPs. Monday Bastard in 1/2 IMPs. Today Bastard in 2/3 IMPs. 60d in minwraps (24s). So it occurred to me I don't have a single FBBC Cert. That's likely to change. I ordered everything thats 6" and above.

  23. If you don’t have time to watch the whole video, you can just read the Q&A list here. Question 1: What is your current training routine? This could be a very long answer, I assume you mean gripper training ? I train grippers 3 times per week . I don’t really warm up (but if you do , then keep doing so ) I close a no.2 or no.3 to get the clicks out of my hands . Tuesday 1st session - 4-6 attempts at the heaviest gripper you can manage and move after you’ve set the gripper . Then 4-6 closes/attempts on the heaviest gripper you can clo

  25. Now I have to pull the MM9 from the hook in my basement. It’s been there for years now with never knowing if it would ever leave my house. I will be sending it to Matt for proper cleaning for Stephen to make history and sit alone on top of the MashMonster pyramid. I will send it on or around September 19 as I am away from home base currently.

  26. So I picked up bending recently because there might be a competition next summer which runs DU/Reverse bending. Started of with 6mm and 7mm nails and then proceeded to 8mm HRS Here's 8mm 180mm HRS from 2 days ago. Any technique pointers or idea's is very welcome. Goals is 8mm HRS 100mm to next Summer.

  27. I had a good training day. Did all sorts of bending. Highlights include 2 Horrido bolts. Here are pics and video of an A2 bolt in one IMP and a braced 5.5” 12.9 Bolt. I failed the 5.5” bolt and was not even close to it a couple weeks ago.

  28. tracking says tomorrow. So yesterday I was on my first date since getting separated, and the gal is very interested in the grip stuff and had asked me to bring grippers. So I brought trainer, COC 2, Tetting rated 140, and COC 3 rated 160 (biggest I have ever closed), to show her the variety. Without warming up beyond a few reps on the trainer and the 2, I did a quick rep for her on the 140 and it was really easy, so I figured what the heck. Closed the 160 just like that with no chalk. Must have been my strongest day yet -- I knew I shouldn't push it since I'd be attempting the cert Monday

  30. Hi All! My name is Yaroslav. Im from Kazakhstan. Im newby in grip sport. As all the grip amateurs I wanna to close CoC#3 gripper and I decided to write my traninings here. Few words about me: Height - 193 Weight - 92 Training experience - 1 year Current best results: 1) CoC#1.5 TNS -20reps 2) хват-6 (like CoC#2 hard rgc) TNS - 11 reps 3) хват-7 (like CoC#2.5 rgc) TNS - 1 rep 4) хват-8 (like CoC#3 easy rgc) MMS - 1 rep I got CoC#3 hard 76mm and current time I can't close it from any set (DS too).

  31. A special thanks goes to Matt and his gripper expertise. This was all him in recognizing the gripper was "off" (besides the stamping error Warren made) as a good jump and a consistent jump from the MM8.

  32. Zass Day 2020 was up and down but fantastic overall. I first tried to bend a Noble Force 330 bar cut down to 6.5”. I put so much into the bend and tried for over 30 minutes but only bent it to 3.5”. Maybe should have left it the normal length. Next, I DO bent a Gold Nail replica. Then, a spike speed bending world record attempt. I was too slow, but can get faster for sure. Finally, the highlight for me. An all out war with a giant killer combo x 2 braced bend. 2 grade 5 bolts and 2 6” nails taped together. Took so much out of me. A war of attrition and it finally quit. I outlasted it and am be

  33. Guys, if someone wants to continue this let's take it to the gripboard forum. This is a personal blog. We can't move it out of its subject. And for everyone's information, my friend Panagiotis will buy a rated 4 and close it all on video. He also said he will take picture and video of this #4 clearly to shut the doubters. And more to come. So let take it elsewhere guys.

  34. I just saw this thread about this new guy. Well, as with all in the past, you just never know what freak might pop up. Stephen is a perfect recent example of this. But, it will all shake out eventually! It always does based on my decades in grip and this forum.

  35. We’ve thought about keeping a list on our website. Just video submissions of people closing their own grippers. There wouldn’t have to be many rules... Do people want that?

  36. The only way for it to truly be fair no questions asked is everyone using the same gripper. While using a set block. Everything in full view on camera. There is way to many variables when everyone is using different rgc methods and like post have been made no two grippers are the same. Just my opinion..

  37. Correct, except not friction. When a spring moves, the inside of the coil deforms slightly. With The Bumper installed the deformation has to fight back against the rubber. Since the added resistance comes solely from the soft, natural rubber it’s impossible to harm the gripper. 🤗 We’re really excited to offer this. We feel it will be a huge addition to any gripper collection.

  40. Damn! I never thought we would see a full barehanded bend of a red nail. I could kink one 5-7 degrees back in the day and I thought that would be the limit. The skin on his hand must be like thick leather!

  44. Congrats to Carlos Rivera for absolutely smashing the GHP Level 7 and posting the second best result with this level gripper that we have seen to date. I'm sure the GHP Level 8 will be next for Carlos. Carlos has a background in baseball and some pretty impressive powerlifting numbers in the IPF. https://youtu.be/GTDEKZU-6vY

  45. I've been convinced it would happen since my first Red bends. Actually...in 2013, I logged... "Nov 24 Gonna try and bend more often (EJ suggestion) and toughen up my hands. (DO) G8 (2) IMP's Singles (PR) , 6" Bolt 5/16" (1), Red (1) I am starting to think I may eventually be able to (DU) a Red. I may make a few attempts in the near future. Additionally...down the road, I think I'm eventually going to be able to bare hand a Red (ends ground smooth of course). Don't ask me why...hubris maybe?" After barehanding a number of different nails, I'm now convinced that a

  46. Thanks I've been doing skinfold body fat % tests maybe once a year for a very long time (at least 25 years - probably longer) - always around 10 to 12% except the one time I tried to really go low and got down around 5-6% but then promptly got pretty sick. It was stupid hard to do and just plain stupid as well. Of course there is controversy over the skinfold methods accuracy but even if not perfectly accurate - it does seem to be consistent and repeatable over time. I think it's mostly a genetic thing really - I've always been pretty lean. I don't train or diet specifically with this

  47. Don Larkin contest was today. I could not make the contest this year, so I did some bends at home to honor him and all he meant to the strongman world and a Michigan in particular. I did a world record attempt for DHWOG long bar braced speed bending 3 rated bars. Bars went down fairly fast, this should be approved as a new record. Then, I braced bent 3 x DHWOG rated 166.3 kg grade 5 bolts taped together. This was one of the hardest braced bends I have ever done. The bolts were not moving at first. I almost stopped trying but then there was some small movement and I just stuck with it. Took a l
