    The NAGS board is looking to restructure, and part of this will be the addition of new members. But, before we get to that, I, along with the other members would ask you all to please thank and recognize the following members who have decided to step down after many years of help behind the scenes: Brent Barbe, Andrew Durniat, and Eric Milfeld. Each of these guys have each been valuable to the sport. They will be missed, we wish them all the best in the future, and we look forward to seeing them again on the grip platform! Look for more announcements to come, regarding taking on new members and further restructuring of the NAGS board to help the sport grow and move forward. Thanks, Jedd Johnson, Aaron Corcorran, Chris Rice, Andrew Pantke, and Eric Roussin

    I finally got a chance to try the Fatman! So psyched to lift this on my first try. Wide pinch is definitely more my style.....now if only my narrow pinch power could catch up.

    Doing some axle deadlifting. I'm getting more comfortable with this lift though it's still pretty new to me. I think this might be my 3rd or 4th time using it so I'm still working the kinks and how to grip the bar for optimal purchase. So far I'm loving this lift! And I definitely don't regret getting myself an axle to train with! I think I prefer the axle way more than any of the common thick bar rolling handles like the rolling thunder and such which just feel akward for me. It's also a good way to fit in a back workout without taxing your back too hard with heavy weights.

    Last night was my second session in this program cycle working with the Wrist Wrench. I decided to have a little fun and see where I was at. I am pleased with how even my hands are.

    Just got my Stirrup in today from Barrel Strength Systems. This is another really fun grip tool that I feel translates pretty well to rock climbing training (open hand and all on the fingers).

    A friend of mine who used to compete in strongman had this made. The globe size 8 3/4", Handle thickness is 2 7/16 inches, 5 inches long, Weight 229.8lbs made out of ductile steel. Below is a picture of it next to an inch dumbbell. I cant lift this and most likely will never be able to. He has got some air with it (he can lift the inch). I'm wondering how many people out there would be able to lift this monster.

    I'd like to see your Inch lift as well. Okay I got a copy of the video. We tried to weigh the inch but it was super awkward balancing it on the analog scale. Next time I will bring out my digital scale.

    Tried the MM3 last night with my off-hand so I could be the second person after Paul Night to close it off-hand. The first attempt was trash. The second was close. The third was cloooooooooooooooooose. I definitely feel like I can get this with a few more weeks of prep and work on my end range strength. I gave it a try afterward with my right hand and smashed it, no problem. Here's my instagram post with the important parts: Here's the full video:

    I got a scale in the mail today and worked up to a heavy single on the Tips Tester. Feels good to train within my grip specialty (finger based static holds). I am still so embarrassingly bad at the flask. Had to follow up this Tips Tester attempt with some serious 1HP training.

    Today's profile features Michael Rabich. At risk of becoming a habit, we profile yet another gripster who is very hard on himself. He is remarkably unimpressed with his own accomplishments. It always amuses me when someone who can out-grip 99.99% of the world's population, only compares themselves to the top .01%. As I found out with a face-to-face meeting with Michaelā€¦he is impressively strong. My first contact with Michael was in April 2016 on the GripBoard's SJ3 thread. He mentioned he wanted to compete in his first contest. Seeing he was in Queensā€¦I asked if he knew Anton Torrella. Although a long time GripBoard member, he hadn't. The two of them soon met and have become regular training partners and friends. Living relatively close by, Michael was also gracious enough to bring surprise guest Chris "Wonder" Schoeck to SJ3. While I was busy trying to keep the contest running smoothly, I kept noticing Rabich's performance throughout. For a first contestā€¦he kept surprising me...and ended up taking 1st in the 93kg weight class. As impressed as I was, it was the Iron Mind Rolling Thunder Farmer's Walk that made a lasting impression on me. He literally cocked both wrists and somehow held them that way throughout the course. He managed two full lengths on the 50 ft courseā€¦beating out several competitors that outweighed him. This is a ridiculous display of wrist strength. When I mentioned Rabich was a long time GripBoard memberā€¦I wasn't exaggerating. He's been around since 2004, predating all but a few members. Upon looking, don't expect to find a ton of posts though. In his own wordsā€¦"I'm more of a lurker than a poster." Michael often quotes the adageā€¦"if you cannot improve on a silence, don't say anything". He lives by these words and most often lets his deeds do the talking. With that in mind, in the profile below you won't see him mention his service to this country. I have incredible respect for those who choose to keep this country safe and risk their lives doing so. Michael served in the Infantry Unit of the U.S. Army and has done combat deploymentsā€¦including Afghanistan. He managed to train throughout his service and has an excellent idea about the grip strength of the average soldier is. Powerlifting for over a decade, at 190lbsā€¦he managed a 555 deadlift. Not one to be a big fish in a small pond, he trains regularly in the Middle Village in the midst of multiple powerlifting record holders. He's particularly strong at neck lifts and standing overhead press. He's cleaned and pressed 98lbs on a 2.5" dumbbell and has done 90lbs on the wrist wrench. At a recent Queens workout, he pulled a Sorinex Axle milestone of 300lbs. A man of hidden talents, he learned a number of juggling techniques in a few short months. It is my pleasure to introduce the 4th member to be profiled from the NYC Queen's Grip Contingent. Let's hear from Mr. Rabich. 7 Questions to get to know Michael. 1. What are your stats? Gripboard Name, Age, Height (inches/meters), Weight (lbs/kgs), R/L dominant hand size (cm/in), Country/City (or region ā€¦ whatever you are comfortable with), Relationship Status, Kids?, Occupation ("international spy" is acceptable) GripBoard name: MRabich Age: 36 yo Height: 6'1" (185.4 cm) Weight: 200lbs (90.7 kgs) Hand Size: 7.5" (19 cm) Location: USA/Queens, New York Relationship: Married for 10 years, 1 daughter (8yo) Occupation: Mail Carrier/Supervisor 2. Why did you start training grip (and how long is it now)? I been strength training since I was 18 year old. I remember reading Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kubik. He stressed having strong grip, so I bought some Ironmind grippers and some thick dumbbell handles. Most of my training is powerlifting style, therefore I always do some double overhand deadlifts (personal best is 435). In 2016, I saw that there was a meet held relatively close to me. I decided to go. I had good time and will continue competing. 3. Before you die, what is your ULTIMATE grip goal/goals? Lifting an Inch. I would also like to deadlift 500 lbs double overhand. My other goals are just improving the lifts I've done in competitions. I did 64 kgs on 2.5 inch crusher and would like to raise it to 70 kgs at SNJ4. I'd like to see nice gains on pinch and grippers too. 4. How do you currently structure your overall training/how do you incorporate your grip training? I go to gym 3 times a week. In the last 2 weeks I threw a couple of sets of one arm deadlifts. I also do some pinch block curls at home. For a while I was training once a week with Anton Torrella. In the past 2 months I have not had chance to train with him oftenā€¦due to holiday work load, but hopefully we will resume our weekly training. We like to just run through the whole gauntlet of equipment we have between the 2 of us. Sometimes other people come along too, most notably to the grip world Jose Cabrera, Chris Schoeck and Anthony Clarino (though I have not yet had the pleasure of training with him yet, missed him by like an hour on Dec. 31). I will be competing in SJ4. About 3 months before the contest, I will start focusing on the competition lifts. 5. What hobbies (other than grip/bending/lifting) do you enjoy? Spending time with family. Iā€™m a big sports fan, especially baseball and football I been a league bowler for the last 3 years, and recently I took up juggling. 6. Do you have a personal anecdote, topic or thoughts you'd like to include in your profile? If somebody is reading this, and contemplating on competing, DO SO! It WILL be a good time! 7. Who's Grip profile would you like to see next? Don Smitley. He participated in 2 grip contests that I did, and showed great improvement. After that, I saw him put up some really high numbers at King Kong. The man must be doing something right. Thanks Michael. Don has been contacted and has agreed to be profiled.

    Today's profile features Daniel Fleming. As we travel around the world with these profiles, we finally arrive (overdue) to Canada. Daniel is our first, but certainly not the last Canadian Gripster to be profiled. I do not bandy words, and I seldom use the word "prodigy." I believe the last time I used it was in reference to Heath Sexton. While it fits Daniel like a glove, we will vary things and label Fleming as a Grip Phenom. The world is filled with many excellent Gripsters, but every once in a whileā€¦you get someone who's incredible talentā€¦is matched by incredible motivation. When that happens, it's something to behold. During the week or two it has taken me to get this profile upā€¦Fleming has already PR'd several times to raised the bar he is continually resetting. After training only 9 months and in his third contest... Daniel won NCGC2 (National Capital Grip Contest 2) beating out THE Gil Goodman using the Wilks formula. Many people can train for many years and not win a contest (myself included). Fleming closed a choked Tetting SE CPW rated at 200lbs (at only 175lbs!). For the non-gripster peopleā€¦he took second in the gripper event, beating out 8 people that were significantly heavier than him. Fleming also placed 5th overall at the 2017 Southern Squeeze, behind notable gripsters like Burns, Rogowski and Fox. With what seems to be a recurring theme, both Climbers and Armwrestlers make seamless transitions into Gripsport. Daniel's no exception, excelling at both of those disciplines. However, they have both now taken a back seat to Gripsport. Fleming's high placing on the Barrel Strength System Leaderboards is nearly unbelievable considering his short time training gripā€¦and the fact his competitors are often 40-70lbs heavier than him. Since listing his accomplishments may be impractical, I'll direct you to his instagram for your perusal. The first time I met Daniel was at NCGC2. To steal the words from my write-upā€¦"I quickly ran into a tall wiry guy with a light scruff that encircled his jaw. He had an infectious smile and seemed obviously happy to be there. Those were my first impressions of the Canadian Dan Fleming." Turned outā€¦Dan had made the trip down to Maryland strictly for the Grip Contest. Pretty much only grip addicts will do things like that. Let's let Dan tell you how he caught what we affectionately call the Gripbug... 7 questions to get to know Danielā€¦ 1. What are your stats? Gripboard Name, Age, Height (inches/meters), Weight (lbs/kgs), R/L dominant hand size (cm/in), Country/City (or region ā€¦ whatever you are comfortable with), Relationship Status, Kids?, Occupation ("international spy" is acceptable) Gripboard Name: "Daniel Fleming" Age: 26 Height: 6'2"-6'3" (188 cm) Weight: 180lbs (81.6 kg) Hand: Right 7 5/8" (19.4 cm) Location: Canada/ Montreal, Quebec Relationship Status: Happily taken! Occupation: Professional tattoo artist 2. Why did you start training grip (and how long is it now)? I've been training grip now since the beginning of December 2015 (it's been ~1 year and 1 month). Grip training was the aftermath of armwrestling for a few years and rock climbing for 1 year. It was armwrestling that really got me addicted to hand and wrist/finger strength. I'd train endless wrist curls, pronation exercises, sledgehammer lifts, and pull-ups. When I began my job as a tattoo artist, I was forced to stop going to armwrestling practice because It got in the way of my tattooing shifts. Even though I couldn't go to practice anymore, my armwrestling training at home didn't stop. I had always wanted to try climbing and it seemed like a way to keep up with hand/wrist/finger strength. After about a year of climbing intensely 3 days a week, I discovered Gripsport. It turned out that a fellow armwrestler Eric Roussin (who lived only a couple short hours away) was the man behind Gripsport in Canada. After seeing some of his grip videos, I began to train grip with the limited equipment I had at the time. I had a couple of 25lb plates that I put a bar through to make my own D.I.Y. Euro, and 3 no-name grippers. I had bought them years ago at a fitness store, but had never really trained with. From there my addiction grew. I bought more grip training equipment and more plates. Grip training eventually took over my armwrestling training time. 3. Before you die, what is your ULTIMATE grip goal/goals? Like so many others, I definitely have my eye set on lifting the INCH. If my training continues to go as well as it has been goingā€¦I don't think lifting it will be too much further down the road! With my gripper addiction so strong, I'd also love to climb the Mash Monster ladder. Pinching 50k with 1 hand has been on my mind for a while now. So far I've only gotten air, but it's definitely coming up soon. I could go on and on about individual lifts that I want to achieve, but most of all I want to continue to show and motivate the smaller guys that you don't need to be 250lbs to lift big weights!!!! 4. How do you currently structure your overall training/how do you incorporate your grip training? The implements I train with changes every so often, but I never take away pinch or grippers. On a normal pinching day I'll start off with grippers, all the way from reps with lighter grippers to maxing out single reps. I found that going hard on grippers doesn't really cripple your pinch, but actually improves it. I max out pinch more often than I probably should, but it's been working for me. So just like with grippers, I'll start with lower weight with a few reps, then move to single rep lifts until failure. Lately I've been doing pinch holds with David Hornes new Gold Bar pinch block as well. It's definitely a must-have tool for people who want a stronger pinch! After pinching, depending on how my fingers feel, I might do some hub work (same as I do my pinch work) and then finish off with sledgehammer finger-walks. Between gripper sets, I like to incorporate sets of dumbbell shoulder pressing. It wakes up my body and keeps me intense for the rest of my training! On a thickbar day, I'll avoid doing much/if any gripper work (as most find out that grippers + thickbar on the same day is a bad combination). Just like with pinch, I'll probably do shoulder pressing or squats to get my body going. Again, just like with pinchā€¦I'll train the crusher the same. Starting off with lower weight and a few reps, all the way to single rep max lifts. Once I hit max, I'll lower the weight to the point where I can at least get 5 reps, and do sets with that. If that weight seems too heavy after 1 or 2 sets, I'll lower it again (and repeat). A recent addition to my thickbar training has been thumbless fat grip pullups (palms facing away from yourself) Once again, If I still have energy, I'll finish off with sledgehammer finger-walks. 5. What hobbies (other than grip/bending/lifting) do you enjoy? I love skateboarding, which I did for 15 solid years. I love playing guitar. I have a deep obsession with armwrestling. Even though I haven't been able to pull lately, I still watch and think about it every day! I love rock climbing. I enjoy walking a lot. I really enjoy travelling, but that only started once I began travelling to grip contests! There's probably too many more to name... At this point, my main hobby is getting stronger! That includes training, applying strength to everyday activities and functions, and constantly looking for information from others on how to improve! 6. Do you have a personal anecdote, topic or thoughts you'd like to include in your profile? I just want to say how much I appreciate almost everyone I've come across in the Gripsport world. Travelling to contests have been some of the best times I've ever had, It's nothing but support and encouragement from everyone. I have no plans of stopping. I thrive helping others succeed through advice and suggestions, and it seems like mostly everyone involved in grip sport is the same. Through experience, the thing that made the greatest difference in my grip training was the mental aspect. Don't just plan your training routine and try to get through it.... Think about why you're there training, think about what you're trying to achieve! I never want to finish a session knowing that I didn't give it my all. I never want to finish a grip contest knowing that I could've shown more intensity. Ill constantly tell myself while Im training that they don't want it as much as I do. They don't want to put in the blood and sweat like I do! The key is to train consistently, train with intensity, and love what you do! 7. Who's Grip profile would you like to see next? Eric Roussin! Not only a fellow Canadian, but truly a pioneer in Canadian Grip Sport and Armwrestling. Thanks Daniel. Eric has agreed and will be profiled soon.

    Updates... When I heard that @Squeezus was going after the FBBC 2.5" Crusher Record (currently 224.43lbs) at SJ4...this needed to happen... and... @Jared Goguen's "Mammoth Grip Tools" Trilobite 3" Rolling Handle will now be part of the SJ4 medley...and available for testing and pulls after the contest. ...and the Blobfather will be available for those rare few who think the Blobzilla just isn't enough of a feat. That's all folks.

    Today's profile features Don Smitley. Don well represents the "Under the Radar" title. There are many new gripsters out there, putting the time in and experiencing dramatic gainsā€¦but are also relatively unknown to the grip community at large. Although I have met Don a few times, I hoped to get his good friend to introduce him to the Grip World. Turned out, Tank Andrade was willingā€¦ When Nate asked me to do this intro, I didn't hesitate. There are certain people in life you just can't say no to because you know they would always do anything they could for you. Nate is one of those people. Another for me, for the last 3 decades or so, has been Don Smitley. One of my best friends since youth, he was my original weight training partner from the 90's. Recently reunited after many years, I introduced Don to grip training, and he quickly surpassed me in almost every discipline. Ferociously strong, in his first year (or even his first attempt ), he has pinched 2 x 45 hubs, double 50lb blobs , farmer walked two baby inch dumbells, and manhandled my #155 anvil. I watched his D.O. axle jump from 300 to 365 after one training session! He has a few comps under his belt now (2016 King Kong, NCGC2, SJ3) and has already qualified for 2017 North American Grip Sport Championship. He literally improves every training session. At the rate he is crushing huge featsā€¦if you don't know Don, you will soon enough. He's a great guy and still one of the few who can match my intensity/stupidity in the gym. I am super pumped to introduce my brother, and original Bensonhurst Barbell Club member to the grip worldā€¦Don Smitley. - Chris "Tank" Andrade 7 Questions to get to know Don. 1. What are your stats? Gripboard Name, Age, Height (inches/meters), Weight (lbs/kgs), R/L dominant hand size (cm/in), Country/City (or region ā€¦ whatever you are comfortable with), Relationship Status, Kids?, Occupation ("international spy" is acceptable) GripBoard name: Don Smitley Age: 39 yo Height: 6'2" (188 cm) Weight: 205lbs (93 kgs) Hand Size: 8 1/4" (21 cm) Right hand dominant (left for pinch) Location: USA/Naugatuck, CT Children: I have a beautiful daughter (Alexis) who turns 3 in July. Occupation: I currently work building guns. 2. Why did you start training grip (and how long is it now)? I've been grip training for 1 year now. I was already going to the gym 4 times a week before I started grip training. My lifelong friend, Chris Andrade, introduced me to grip sport. 3. Before you die, what is your ULTIMATE grip goal/goals? Lifting an INCH. 4. How do you currently structure your overall training/how do you incorporate your grip training? I train grip on Saturdays. For the most part, I center these workouts on whatever events will be in the next comp that I'll compete in. 5. What hobbies (other than grip/bending/lifting) do you enjoy? Wellā€¦I really enjoy fishing, but I haven't gone in years. Similarly, I enjoy riding the quad, but I haven't in about a year. I also built my own mountain bike. I go riding when I can find the time. Recently, I got into some RC car stuff. 6. Do you have a personal anecdote, topic or thoughts you'd like to include in your profile? Anyone who hasn't been to a grip competition needs to go to "South Jersey 4" this July. (I swear I didn't pay him to say that.) 7. Who's Grip profile would you like to see next? Dan Fleming Thanks Don. Dan has agreed and will be profiled soon

    Yeah I think I understand the rule a bit better now. I guess I'm just not someone that would doubt any established athlete if they say they have done something, but yes I suppose some people still would. Unfortunately at the moment we are training specifically for the European championships so only training certain events. She did the feat outside of training by accident trying to show a friend how to use grippers, the friend gave her the wrong gripper. If you are interested in seeing what she can do on grippers we will soon be doing Vulcan gripper 20mm block set and silver bullet hold with the coc. We have started recording every training session with commentary so you can follow how she's doing on our YouTube channel if you wish too. First video should hopefully be up later this week.

    Not only did this man lift the inch, he lifted it so easily with each hand that after fatiguing himself armwrestling he said, and I quote, "I'm so tired right now I don't even think I could lift the inch." If I were to tell the complete story, I would tell you that he then proceeded to lift the inch anyway and hold it for maybe 10 seconds at the top. In one evening, in addition to armwrestling, he slammed two different number threes from at least parallel, pinched three 25s, toyed with the inch, performed one arm chins from the tips tester, carried a 45 hex around easily (almost carried it from the practice location to the car), hub curled a 45lb plate, squeezed 280lb first try on my bathroom scale, and got air under a pair of thick 45s. For those curious about his weight: he weighed 170lb, fully clothed, on an analog bathroom scale that I brought. The scale tends to weigh people about 5lb light, so his actual weight was probably ~175lb that night, fully clothed--probably 170lb in the morning. It was absolutely incredible to watch.

    Pronation training. Did 4 reps with 6.25 (video) kg and 2 reps with 7.5 kg. I'm using a little body english and my hand is lifting a bit off from the table. It's super important to keep the hand as close to the table as possible otherwise it becomes more of an ulnar movement making it alot easier. I try not to lift my hand more than an inch. I don't remember the total length of the handle but I know that from the end of the handle down to where the weights start is 33.5 cm. Btw the guy in the background with the green shirt did a 180 kg axle lift first time he tried it! He also closed a number 3 and lifted a blob50, all on his first try. The dude's a beast!

    1. Must lift to full deadlift position. 2. Only chalk allowed. 3. The lift must be followed down under reasonable control. Kettlebell Deadlift Rules: The Kettlebell must be gripped by the bottom of the kettlebell. If the kettlebell is coated in rubber or some other covering that enables a better grip, it will not be added to the list. All effort possible to maintain a pure lift of the kettlebell using open hand / pinch strength is appreciated, meaning keep tilting to a minimum.

    No question the greatest crushing grip in history at an older age was G Gillingham. Not even close. I am pretty sure he could still close a 3 at will until he passed away in his mid-to-late 60s. He was a long time trainer of weights, before others in the NFL were. Richard Sorin's re-certification at Age 57 is the oldest person to cert to date. Chris Rice's Number 3 squeezes put him in rarified air. We now have guys like David Horne who are over 50 who can do so with ease. I touched my first gripper at Age 44. I closed my first Number 3, an average one, about a week before I turned 53. I smashed an easy one on my 53rd birthday at a contest in England. I closed a hard Number 3 (158 or 159 on the RGC) with a set of about 1.5 inches in a contest when I was 56 years, 4 months old. I am 62 years old and still not Certified. I thought I would be back in 2008, but am still working on it. The last bit via credit card set is a bitch, what can I say.
