    Tried the Silarukov handle tonight with 108kgs - I was lacking a bit in the thumb department - and I'd also run out of chalk...not the best way to test what I could do! I will try the Crusher with 106.5kgs next week and see if I can get a similar amount of reps?

    I did my test last night with 98kgs on the Rolling Thunder - did the 'legal' handle demonstration, and then weighed afterwards for weight confirmation. It was hard work. Good luck. Laine

    Hello All. Had some fun(?) with the Crusher tonight - much harder than the Silarukov 60mm handle. I had to dig in to get the reps out tonight. At one point, I thought I was going to expire!!! I will try the R/T with the same weight next time. Good luck. Laine

    I'm sorry if I misunderstood your comment - I am 'neuro-atypical', and sometimes I struggle to see the meaning in things, it also makes me socially awkward, which is why I tend to keep myself to myself. Added to that, I have other 'issues' to contend with. That said, I have decided to do some things worthy of note in 2019, and I plan to enter some contests and see where I end up. Once again, I apologize for any misunderstanding. Laine

    It's been a while. I took a pause from social media too. I am now only active on Instagram, under 'Geraltimus'. I like IG much more than FB because it's easier to form my own timeline without all the political and other stuff I don't need to see. I do miss a few guys ofcourse, I always kept contact with @anwnate but slacked with keeping up with @Joefrey. I still have contact with @Royz and occasional with @RTvG. I mis the New York gang, haven't talked to them in a while. Same for @Shoggoth! Ofcourse the other guys on IG I still follow them and see what's going on in general in grip. I am 41 now and as years grow, perspectives change too. I always kept my eyes on the 3 certification as a centre of my training. tried a lot, came close to a freakin' millimeter in a real cert attempt and never got up to acceptable strength for a legit training attempt. I have this sturdy 153lbs #3 and no matter how hard I train, CCS-ing this thing always humbles me in how far I miss it, while I could CCS an 'easier' #3. Always when I get up to let's say 169 lbs MMS strength, it tends to go downhill after that. In general training, my focus has shifted to more - for me - realistic training that is also easier to combine with daily life. Peaking at prescribed moments never worked for me. So I go more with what my body tells me. I focus more on calisthenics. I am able to climb a rope without use of legs, do pistolsquats and perform an L-sit. Tweaking everything ofcourse as I go. This is for me more functional. I stretch a lot too and focus on better movement. I can run about 5km /3.01 miles around 25 minutes which still gives me a good base conditioning to work with. So all in all, I feel good. Hurt my arms recently because of the ropeclimbing but that's a little overuse that will go away when I keep addressing it properly. Need to toughen up. What do I expect of myself in terms of grip. For now, I have discarded the grippers for a while. I do the more basic gripwork and till now, it still keeps me in the harder #3 MMS range, so I have a good base to build on. Long story short, I'll start logging again. No time pressure, just trying to have fun in the process. I wish you all a merry christmas 🎄 153lbs #3 baseline: 2C9E1491-4321-4277-AF92-40CAE1DECE3E.MP4

    It’s pretty cool how we both got our shoulders back at the same time. I’m in weight gain mode, so maybe we’ll make a race of it, even though I’d be elated to hit a 375 touch n’ go. Here’s some advice you said that’s not needed: eat a ton of Mexican food! And respect and embrace the the magical ability of the power belly!

    1. Must lift to full deadlift position. 2. Only chalk allowed. 3. Must be metal plates. Must lift smooth-sides-out. No rubber plates. 4. Standard Olympic plates only - no rounded edge plates can be used. 5. The lift must be performed directly from the floor. 6. Lift must be followed to the floor.

    I bent a 40” Headless Goliath bar today. Very happy with getting this bar. I also started a snap of a 16 mm x 40” bar. Absolutely brutal. I am exhausted and the bar is not close to snapped. I hope I can take it down next week. Here is the Goliath bend.

    Super quick workout today. I’d left today open for grip work but the planned workout in Astoria was cancelled due to weather. @Anton.Torrella gave me a mystery bag of half bent stuff, largely drill rod but a bunch of Reds, Hexabastards, stuff like that, with various degrees of kink in it ranging from just a wobble to almost 90 degrees. I spent a little while tonight just working on that stuff - crushing down six random pieces ranging from an outlier at about 1/4” to a couple of pieces that looked to be L, M, and N. Planning another session very soon, as this one wasn’t very demanding and didn’t hurt too badly. Also doing my classroom feats this week - one horseshoe Tuesday night, timber spike and horseshoe Wednesday morning, two timber spikes and a big grade 2 bolt Thursday morning. Nothing too wild.

    Shawn, you were very impressive today with the 3x25k pinch, Euro lifting and controlled air with the Inch! No complaints about the rain and quagmire conditions either, you were very positive and fun to be around. I think a sojourn to Crooksville or Towanda or to see any of the top 2HP guys that can help you with form will get you over #250 before you know it. The fact that you could do what you did today with no frame of reference re: form, width and in an admittedly de-trained state is frankly one of the most impressive grip performances I've witnessed. Pinch is fickle and unpredictable for sure, but you must have some serious potential, so don't get too discouraged when you have days where your poundage is way down. Just train based on perceived difficulty and the weights will increase on your "on" days. I wish I could help you more with form, but I'm more of a 1+1=2 pincher (1HP RH+LH ~=2HP).

    Took a trip to the lands of the pickup artist for some training. No expectations as I havent done diddly for atleast a year and a half. To my surprise I did pretty good. Tried a 58mm 2hp euro for 190-200 pounds cold twice. With a proper warmup and some technique refinement I think I can do some serious weight. I now understand the love affair with the euro..its siren song is undeniable. Im in love. I did 60 or so pounds on the lukes inch wrench Lifted the inch 4-5 inches twice and it was balanced too! I did a bunch of attempts with the sudin method of chip weights on the finger side. But no go. I was closer this time then when I tried to lift it at SS16 and SJ4. Theres no footage of the other lifts to include my poor attemps at 2x45 pinch. No one really expected shit to get done from me haha But I pinched these here 3-25kg plates, video is my first go I also lifted it again and moved it with an additional 5lbs of chip weight. Cant wait till next time. Feels great. DE1C5C03-D408-4058-80E2-EAB6A2260396.mov
