    Royz I’m going to say no, probably not. It’s just a tool - owning a hammer doesn’t make me a carpenter, right? IF you have a long history of shoulder problems it means given a new tool you will continue to not fix it. You need to learn the fix not get more tools. Most adults I have met have shoulder and spine issues because they are too lazy to read and too stupid to learn. Bone #1 I’ll throw you is the shoulder has 15 ranges of motion bone #2 i toss out- it’s typically not the shoulder that’s the issue when someone has a shoulder problem. Look above and below.

    In 2013 I cut from 230 to 180. I stayed under 190 for 5 years. I accomplished my weight drop primarily with nutrition and a shift to body weights training. The first year my max strength stayed pretty close to my 225 lb levels. By year 3 I had a pretty substantial shift in all my heavy events like double over hand lifts. Going in to year 5 I could still easily lift the inch / hub a 45, close a 3 - but barbell lifts all felt heavy. The biggest area I saw was lifts where greater spine stability mattered under load. A big belly and more fat contributes to spine strength in certain conditions. Definitely found it easier to increase strength when eating more food. Now im between 210-215 and I feel at about the right weight. I literally eat whatever I want and have enough belly to help for dead’s but not over 14% bf the improvements in blood pressure and sleep quality that came with the weight drop well worth the low priority change in gym lifts. Get that belly down and you’ll feel better ps I would add the athletic advantages I got from a season of gymnastics and Calisthenics has been my highest yield detour in my strength journey. The 2012 version could lift more weights but would be broken in half at the warm ups of the 2019 model 👍👍

    I’m very interested in the event in Missouri. Never done a grip contest but they interest me. I’m currently working on the IronMind Blockbuster Pinch Block and also the IronMind Hub. Can anyone give me some names to contact about this event? Thanks, Andy Smith

    Thanks buddy. I like to put some focus on it in the summer. I only get to do standing press work outside.

    I started doing a little overhead work this week. Strangely enough, it doesn't seem to hurt my tore up shoulders like benching does. Much lighter than you, but it feels good to press weight again. Good stuff buddy!

    I've fluctuated between 230 and 280 over the last few years. When I dropped weight, I was able to maintain my grip strength on all lifts and increase them a little on most. When I added weight, I was able to increase them a little easier and quicker. Always easier to increase strength and muscle mass on a caloric surplus. That being said, weight isn't as big a factor in grip as it is in other full body strength sports. I think you would only see a very minimal impact, if any, unless you drop a huge amount of weight.

    Wednesday May 15, 2019 Went up to my friend's farm and cleaned up my caber a little bit with draw knife. Probably did about 20 throws only missing 3. Also brought some kettlebells to throw: 10kg, 14kg×2, 18kg. Five sets with the bells.

    Thanks Don, sometimes you gotta get it in no matter how you're feeling! Monday May 6, 2019 I went up to my friends farm to change out our winter tires. While we were there he showed me some freshly felled trees. I picked out one that was 14' long and he cleaned the branches off for me. I gave it some good attempts but it was pretty rough and I never managed to turn it before needing to call it a night. I'll try to get back this weekend.

    Your nuts to train that hard today! My body was beat, mowing the lawn was as physical as I got.

    Friday May 3, 2019 I was supposed to go to my friend's farm and make a caber but he was too busy so instead: I ran to the park then searched for some fallen logs that were caber sized. Found a few but they were all rotten and only survived one toss. But it's a start. I tossed some small log pieces keg style then continued on my run to campus. There I ran around and practiced some basic parkour skills: vaults, balancing, crawling, wall climb ups, jumping, and landing. Before running home. Saturday May 4, 2019 Traveled to Michigan for the steel bending and breaking championship with Adrian. I had only intended to spectate but Don wasn't going to let that happen and Adrian got along so well with his kids that I was able to participate fully. I'm planning to do a complete trip write up this week so I won't detail much here. But i did manage to go home with an incredibly sweet 3rd place trophy! Sunday May 5, 2019 Squats 295×7,7,10 Farmer's walk 195×40'+40'×5 every 2min Atlas stone to shoulder 215×1×10 every minute (alternate sides) Yoke walk 440×40'+40'×3 Arm over arm sled pulls 40×100'×2 It was beautiful here today. The first really nice day of the year. I'm currently sunburned, stone kissed and covered in weird bruises. It's been a great weekend 😁

    Very good to see you back Adam!!! Your overall grip strength is mind blowing. I also like watching your videos (especially Axle) because you just chalk up, walk up, and lift. No loud yelling or antics. Just workman-like lifting and huge strength.

    If I'm understanding you right your reading into this too much. It had nothing to do with your record or anyone's records. After the resounding hatred I got for the Jug from the survey done post King Kong we decided to change the event. The LBH was picked because it knocked the poundage down to sub 250's and most of the promoters already had one. The 6" lift was done because all the KK lifts will be done to a height, if new rules need to be implicated so be it. If you still think this was selected to interfere with your record or such I'll discuss it with you on the phone not on a forum.

    I think I will come out to play - I have it in my head to get a decent Crusher number, and as it's only a 6" lift, I should be able to do more weight than a full lift. It should be fun?! Laine

    With 20+ venues, lifts to lockout would be much more likely to lead to judging variances. Just trying to make things as simple as possible.
