  1. Not me unfortunately lol. Worked out at Tim’s and this young (early 20s) grip newbie tried Tim’s Inches - he had never seen an Inch before and he easily lifted one in each hand. I think we will see some good farmers walk videos if he sticks with this …

  2. This doesn’t look all that hard, but the pressure felt on my wrist was crazy! Adam Glass also did this recently. Give it a try.

  3. So I trained with my friend Fip and he is a grip monster. Fip is a very strong powerlifter and does strongman training sometimes. Hi best shoulder press is 185 KG and seated is 200 KG. So I called him for a grip session. He never trained grip, ever. He once in Strong gym attempted a CoC #3 with a bad set and got it near (I saw the video) and he never did anything else. He came over and trained grip on Saturday 7th of May 2022. He closed a #3! and yes I showed him how to set. But he didn't really do it right. He powered through it (you'll see it later on a video), He lifted the Inch no problem. He lifted the blob and face lifted it. He did pinch lift my 2 35's with two fingers which is very hard 35s. Those who tried it knows it. Even some 45 lifters couldn't lift this maybe because it is thin and sharp? He also did lift my 2 45s which is extremely hard. Strongest of the strong came to my grip temple and no one did it or even break the ground with it besides Big Sam. Sam Samuel Sopolinski easily lifted it. Heck even the thick bar King Khaled did it to his knees only. And finally, Fip easily did lift the Millennium dumbbell with each hands. Yup you heard me right. And yes, I did show him how to tilt as he is a beginner. He did have some air under it then asked him to tilt it. I filmed the tilt. Then on video I ask to again strict lift it he did have it up an inch or so strict. I will later post the video on my YT a week or so from now. Fip and I both weigh around 120 KG but him being much leaner. Is Fip the best newbie gripster I have seen? Nope. There was an Afghan a cousin of Razaq who was way better but the guy literally came from the cave ages and didn't want to be filmed because I could seal his soul and hack it, enslave him into anything I want. I will work on him and hopefully he agree's.

  5. Back to training on grippers regularly, I've set up my week to basically revolve around when i'm gonna train grippers, So i've stopped doing anything back related until grip day, Then i do bench afterwards, Doing all my push stuff before grip, And all the pull stuff after grip A 3.5 close from the gym, Honestly feeling easier and easier, I remember the 3 feeling like this late last year And a cobalt close from the same session, Can clack it for reps even after a 3.5, Getting far stronger than i would have thought Other miscellaneous work includes 5 #3 closes, 5 RB260 closes, 200kg farmers carry for distance with the frame tilted forward (i find it hits my pinky and ring finger more tilted forward)

  6. I was REALLY looking forward to the Canada Grip Sport Nationals. After a three-year absence of a Nationals due to pandemic-related restrictions, I was eager to compete for this title once again. When Brad Provick contacted me a few months ago about a big grip contest that he was organizing in May, I suggested that he make it the Nationals. Jason Steeves, who had originally planned to host the contest in 2020, and I, who hosted the event in 2019 and the years before, didn’t yet have plans to organize the contest in 2022. So, with Brad ready to go, and with the success he’s had in growing the sport in Saskatchewan, I thought it would be a great opportunity. He agreed, but on one condition: that I make the trip out west to defend my title. I was definitely up for doing this, as I had been looking forward to travelling out west for a while to compete with the grip greats of the region. I knew that the Nationals would be very competitive. James Jeffers, Brad Provick, Tom Bryson, and I have had very similar contest performances over the past couple of years, and I knew there were several others who weren’t far behind. The contest was indeed competitive – even more than I expected. And there were several surprising performances from competitors I didn’t know, or that I knew very little about. More on this later… This was only my second trip to Saskatchewan. I had been to Moose Jaw in 2008 for the Canadian Armwrestling Nationals, but had never been to Regina. I stayed at a hotel that was directly in front of the venue: a strongman gym specializing in strength sports called Mettle Performance Training Centre. It was a perfect space for the contest, with plenty of seating for competitors and spectators alike. There was also plenty of food, including some great pulled pork sandwiches provided by competitor/sponsor Scott Pirsak and his wife. I had met Tom and James before, but it was the first time I got to meet Brad, Scott, and everyone else in person. I recognized most of the names, but it was great to be able to put faces to them. Among these competitors was Joy Brown, a 73-year-old competitor who writes poetry. She’s even published an entire collection of grip sport-related poems! I’ve already read it and it’s great! This year’s Nationals consisted of five events: the Double Overhand Apollon’s Axle Deadlift, the IronMind BlockBuster Pinch Block, the 2.25” Crusher, the Two-Hand Tips Tester, and the Little Big Horn. First up was the axle, which has traditionally been a strong event for me. But I also knew that it was a strong event for many of the competitors in attendance, including Tom Bryson, who holds the Canadian record. I was a little worried, because I had tweaked my back a few weeks ago and was unable to train with the axle using heavy weights. Luckily, my pre-contest rest period seemed to take care of this, as I didn’t experience pain during the contest. I managed to lift 190 kg, which is not a PR, but I was very satisfied considering the circumstances. Three competitors lifted more: Brad got 195, and both Tom and Tristain Hoath were successful at 200. Next up was the IronMind Pinch Block. Several competitors were able to lift big weights with this, including Al Block, who set the Canadian masters record with a lift of 40.1 kg. I managed 38.1, which was a slight disappointment because I expected to lift 40+. The big surprise in this event was the performance of first-time competitor Carter Colleaux. At 20 years of age and weighing only about 180 lbs, he lifted more than everyone else in the room: 43.2 kg! Just grams away from the overall Canadian record! We were all extremely impressed. The third event was the 2.25” Crusher, which I expected to be my best event, relatively-speaking. I was hopeful that I could lift at least 105 kg, but I did even better than that, with a successful lift of 107.2, breaking the overall Canadian record, and world record for the 93 kg class. I attempted 109.5 and got it up about 5 inches, just one inch short of the height requirement. Needless to say, I was very happy with this performance. After three events, Brad and I were either tied for the overall lead, or we were fractions of a point behind Tom (I can’t recall). The Tips Tester was next. I was confident that I would be able to put up a good number, given I had recently broken the Canadian record in a contest in March. I did lift a good amount (148.3 kg), but it turns out the Tips Tester was a good event for many competitors. 10 guys lifted more than 300 lbs! But the person who truly shined in this event was 105 kg class competitor Mike Schiml. Mike had competed in a few grip contests prior to Nationals, and based on his results I knew he was strong, but he’s REALLY strong with the Tips Tester. He managed a lift of 171.2 kg (over 377 lbs)! The contest was run using last man standing format, and I believe he was the only competitor for the last four or five weight increments. We were all wondering “just how high will this guy go?” After four events, Tom was in the lead, Brad and Mike were in second and third place (can’t recall the order), I was in fourth, and I think James was in fifth. The scores were very close. We all knew that the last event was James’s best event: the Little Big Horn. So we expected him to climb up a few spots, but we didn’t know exactly how much ground he’d be able to make up. My LBH training had been going well, and I felt a lift in the 105 kg range would be possible. Luckily, I was able to make a big lift (106.3) when I needed to. James had the top lift with 111.55 (a new Canadian record). Tom, unfortunately, struggled, which caused him to fall several spots in the standings. When the final tally was made, James had earned just enough points to secure the overall title, with a score of 467.6 points (percentage-based scoring was used). I was in second overall with a score of 465.1, and Brad was in third with a score of 464.3. Talk about a close contest! Rounding out the top five were 105 class competitors Mike Schiml (452.6) and Carter Colleaux (436.6). I can’t recall many details from the women’s division, but Christina Kaluza-Hughes was the top lifter, tying or winning four of the five events. It was a very interesting contest. Each event was won by a different competitor, and three events were won by 105 class competitors. Not only were there awards for the top finishers in each class, but there was also prize money! I walked away with $450. (But that’s not all. My hotel also happened to be right next to Casino Regina. I decided to venture over and play a bit and made some more money. All combined, I won enough to more than cover all of my expenses for the weekend (flight, hotel, food, etc.)!) So, yes, I was very happy with my weekend. I can’t say enough about the great job Brad and his team did with this contest. Competing in one of his events really is a great experience. I would definitely recommend attending one of his contests if you ever have the opportunity to do so. His efforts are growing the sport to the point that he may need to host two King Kong dates to accommodate the number of competitors he’s expecting. Bravo Brad, Scott, and the entire team!

  10. Quick training update: I have switched back to working with heavier grippers (around 160s) from wider sets - for me that's MMS Yesterday I did a quick and quite nice gripper workout at my local gym (first time taking those anywhere): GHP8 (158) - 2 MMS reps + 1 nearly closed third rep. Small PR with a properly rated gripper. Although I might have numbers higher on my log, those ratings were done by me and not CPW, and were around 2-4lbs higher than they should've been - so this one's a solid CoC#3 (141) - 7-8 MMS reps CoC#3 (141) - 15 DS reps (not micro-reps, rather 10-15mm) Finisher - some CoC#2.5 (128) and GHP5 (110) wide set rep sets of 6-12 (I think I did 3 sets of those) Wide sets are something I haven't been doing for a long time, and I'm happy to get back to training those. Yesterday was fun actually. A little more range of motion can't hurt sometimes

  25. For my part, I lifted Tim's 142-lb baby Inch, tore a deck of Mavs in the box in one hit, quartered a deck of Mavs, and tore my first deck of bikes (in the box). Of course I'd trade all that for an Inch lift, but there's still time, I'm only 53.

  26. I don’t like that Thom is catching up on the short braced! I attempted a 12 x 7” in an effort to distance myself, but I failed miserably, again. Got stuck with the legs at 3 5/8. But the longer stuff went alot better. 14mm x 11”, which is the shortest 14mm bend ever. Though it felt like I had more in the tank I’m not sure I can kink shorter bars with this sweep/kink technique. I’m already on the very limit with how I angle my legs and position the bars to allow for any movement at all at 11”. But I might try a 10.75” bar next training session just to see how it goes. Another bend I did was 18mm x 23”. This felt really heavy. The bar only moved a minuscule amount on each hit. Though it never got stuck so it might be possible to improve. I might try a 22” next time. I give myself a 50/50 shot at making the 22” bend with my current strength level.

It was a great competition, with strong people, and I did some braced bending for the first time. I didn't think I would, but I enjoyed braced bending a lot. I got this awesome trophy modeled after Slim the Hammerman, for most improved. I will surely treasure that piece.

  33. 2022/05/14 Braced (short bar) and DU bending CRS (SS400 ) 8mm x 200mm (0.315" x 7.87") 4x CRS (SS400 ) 9mm x 200mm (0.354" x 7.87") Some of them went really off-center, not sure why. CRS (S45C) hex 7mm x 180mm (0.276" x 7") After doing a few 7mm bars (not on the picture), I tried DU bending this for 10 minutes (with breaks of course). All I achieved is 21 degrees and a very sore left wrist. Much harder than the A2-70 bolt I did a few days ago, this material in this shape is absolutely brutal. With my "normal" CRS with the same dimensions hex, I can do 10 in a row with small breaks, no problem. The kink until ~10 degrees is fine, but the sweep is super unforgiving. Anyways, finished it to 2" braced because I was mad at it. Btw I'm glad I did grippers yesterday, felt really good.

  42. Saturday - 4/30/22 91 Grip Genie Level 3 - Closed with both hands fairly easily. 96 CPW Standard (Au) Gold - Right hand: 1/4 inch from close - Left hand: 1 inch from close - This gripper is somehow tougher for me than my 104 CoC 2; probably the width. 104 CoC No. 2 - Right hand: 0.5mm or less from close. Debatable that I actually closed it, but believe I missed it by mere fractions of a millimeter. The first ever close will come very soon, no doubt. - Left hand: 5/8 inch from close Finished as I always do, climbing back down the RGC ladder with reps and holds, all the way down to my 26 CoC Guide. Reps and holds continue to get stronger.

I can't believe I am still able to close this after going up 76 RGC on the Ivanko.(after the 10% reset) Pinch: 60mm Pinch block: 10 KG 26.25 kg!!! And I got it with BOTH hands HUGE PR!!!!! Wrists: Plate curl: 10 kg Reverse plate curl: 10 kg Sledge choke front+rear Sledgehammer curl Pronation hold Supination hold Rolling handle thumbless deadlift: 25 kg PR! Rolling handle reverse curl: 20 kg Recovery: Golden grip 100 lbs gripper: 3x failure Extensor "bucket": 3x failure

  48. When someone famous dies, about a month later, I check the internet to see if they were famous enough to have gotten a New York Times obituary. For example, Dave Draper, who was a bodybuilder of the "golden era" of bodybuilding, and a very nice man, eventually got his NY Times Obit. Slim Farman, the last of the old time strong men...nope, nothing. So, I went looking for Louie Simmons. Did not get the NY Times, but he did make it to The New Yorker magazine. The link to it: https://www.newyorker.com/culture/postscript/how-louie-simmons-defined-the-extreme-sport-of-power-lifting Quite an interesting piece. I looked up the author: Female, a Phd, an assistant professor at Northwestern, and African American. It turns out that when she was in her early 20s, she competed in Power Lifting contests. On the one hand, it is well-written, and probably explains the sport of power lifting to a group of readers who don't know the difference between a Deadlift and a Deadhead. On the other hand, it pretty much paints Louie as more extreme than he actually was, which is pretty hard to do, and it is not exactly kind to powerlifters. My son, incidentally, was an Elite Powerlifter for a half dozen years.
