    Same. CPW is still something Kristy and I slap together in the time we have outside our full-time jobs on top of raising 3 small kids and trying not to have work run our life. I totally agree with the recommendation to contact FBBC directly with your concern. To @giyver, make sure your complaints are realistic. What you describe as the "worst service in the world" and you feel "spit on by FBBC" sounds a tad dramatic. It sounds like you're accusing them of being unresponsive at worst. Just ask them about it. My experience with FBBC and the owner(s) is that they will take your concern seriously and address it. Good luck!

    As an owner and sole individual running a equipment business myself; it is a side job there are times that my full-time job and life are a priority over the side business. We are not Rogue or other big companies as this is just a hobby and we try to please our customers as much as possible but life doesn't allow it sometimes. If there is a problem with any small business my recommendation would be to go to them directly; using various sources email, GB, facebook, etc prior to blasting them on social media directly. Just my opinion as someone in the same boat as FBBC.

    Breaking 2 world records in 2018: the IronMind Hub world record again; attempting to obtain the Ironmind Blockbuster world record. And attempting to lift over 200+ lbs on the Little Big Horn.

    Just a side note - we had a 90 cup coffee maker full of regular coffee - they drank all but maybe 3 cups. We made 5 pots of decaf coffee and drank all of that. Drank 2 cases of water also.. Grip is thirsty work!

    Did Andrew just offer up a euro? just kidding, but if anyone at Gripmas ever wanted a Blobzilla, let me or Nate Brous know. We are stopping off at York Barbell on Friday. They have some factory defect Legacy Dumbells on sale for $0.50 per pound Not offering shipping to anyone but we can deliver at Gripmas. https://yorkbarbell.com/product/legacy-solid-round-dumbbell/

    I competed against him in July. He is not extremely strong (yet) in the axle (145k in the 93k class) but naturally gifted with solid dumbbells. His dad is very strong in thickbar lifting, pulling over 90kg with the notoriously difficult LGC handle. Oscar is also (at the age of 15) currently ranked #9 (NAGS) in the 93k class in grippers (20mm block set). Impressive to say the least.

    I got behind in my log, but I am still training grippers, though nothing special to mention now. Had a few busy weeks and got some other stuff to do which took my attention away from training in general a bit. Sometimes that can be good. Cut back to once per week still, I need the recovery now. Same for all over training. My working gripper for now is a filed 137lbs BBGM. For now it's a good one, I do true creditcardset attempts with it (as were it not filed) which are pretty tough with this one. It has a good sweep. Going for a double is still a challenge, so I have a good short term goal for now. If I were doing grip twice a week I would not be strong enough to work at my 90% range. Reflecting on this year I have done a lot and regarding training, I have no idea if I will get the cert or not. Some things are meant to be, other things are not. I keep on training as long as I feel good with it. Would be nice to put this behind me and just train to feel good, doing grip whatever I like, but at this point I am not letting it go.

    Oh so I can place it in the gap then remove and close TNS without the silly pre close?

    Please PM me your name and email address so I can address your concerns. As for the bending certs I lost all my judges this year so FBBC is now 100% a 1 man show and I've requested that bending certs be put on hold till a new system could be put in place. I'm still getting certs in and doing the best I can, that is contributing to the new system being delayed.

    Very easy to injure a tendon if not done with care.

    When we climbers do hangboard etc we try to limit the use of the "crimp" grip - it's hard on the fingers and more dangerous.

    Glad to know man. Hopefully it doesn't happen this time. I've waited a long time to do this again and I'm hungry for revenge.

    I've done some climbing and I enjoy it but no real climbing training in my background. My two younger brothers are climbers though and I usually go to the gym a few times a year with them. As for stones, I've never used tacky. I want to do a strongman contest (or several) in 2018 so I'll probably figure out tacky when prepping. If I'm doing a lot of volume I'll wear cotton physio sleeves or a sweater when it's cooler. Otherwise just bare skin.

    So this is how my hands thickened. It wasn't like that in the past. Not muscular but noticeable.

    To the first question: yes. One time each a week. To the 2nd 90% enjoy the 2-inch (I think I did 125kg on one) and I seem to get more from a 3-inch but I have larger hands. I did a 100-kilos today

    3 whites. Feedback on the video: Too far away and the lighting is poor. A harder more close to max gripper with this videography would probably not enable the judges to see things clearly (proper Set width at start and close).

    Thanks mike! I can’t believe how fast the progress came with these table no sets! I highly recommend it! It is DEFINITELY carrying over into all my other lifts since it’s full range!

    When doing a catch and flip the chance of being able to grab the first position is a lot harder, usually i end up catching with position two. I think finding a happy medium somewhere between them will happen.

    Man what an odd coincidence.

    There was an issue about the down command (that I was lowering the weight before I was given the command to lower from the judge). It relates mostly to that. And trust me when I say this, it's left a bad taste in my mouth for all these years (I have nothing against anyone who IM "claims" as the record holder but with IM it self).

    With as many people as we had sign up this year we have a small problem. We don't have enough coffee cups so please bring your travel mug into the house to use. There will be plenty of coffee (reg and decaf) - just not enough cups.

    Here is the Power Rack Reverse Hyper I want to give away. I thought we put names in a hat and draw the winner (from those who might want it). It breaks down to fit in a car.
