    I recently posted a new article on my website that some board members may find interesting: https://www.thearmwrestlingarchives.com/armwrestling-matches-in-the-cradle-of-strongmen.html

    Today I spent a long time on the Gripboard and in particular going through @Chez training log. Wow!, what an intense amount of training to get to that COC 3 certification, it's both impressive and scary. After reading this, I have decided to do a training log of my own and will set up a new topic in the training log section in the next few days. It will be impossible to be as interesting and diverse as Chez's, but I do hope creating one will motivate me. I have made huge progress since last August when I couldn't even close a COC 0.5, and have attached some videos that I made today to give everyone an idea of how far I have come, and also to let me know how far I have to go !. Right Hand - Very close on the COC 3 credit card set and slightly less than a centimeter to go on a COC 3.5 from a parallel set. Left Hand - Not far behind really, it's about where my Right hand was a month ago. https://youtu.be/nGyk7fIC5qg I look forward to sharing my progress and hopefully I'll get some tips on the way.

    All I know is this. I believe the 600 lbs will stand as a world record for somebody suffering from Rhabdomyolisis for a long time. 😂

    ^Also, you have the opportunity to drop down to an easier gripper if you fail to get a hold with the first gripper you select. But your hold has to be started within 60 seconds.

    The scoring is explained in detail on the Armlifting USA site, but I can confirm that a hold of any duration on a gripper will score higher than a hold of any duration on an easier gripper.

    I know a guy for whom 45 on the Hub is more difficult than 200 on the RT. A few bigger handed guys are in the same boat. But I agree that there are way more people who are stumped by the RT requirement for the CTD Challenge. One thing I haven’t seen yet is someone who’s having trouble certifying because of the gripper.

    Good luck! (Also, v.strong overhead press work, 195 x 4 is no joke!!)

    The Mad Scientist of Grip! A really cool idea. Let us know how training goes with this.

    Saturday June 16, 2018 A1 squats 325×3,3,7 A2 grippers, filed gripper 8s hold + 3 speed closes MMS right 138+113×3×3, left 115+82×3×3 Banded axle deadlifts 335+bands×2×10 every 2min I had some Agatsu kettlebell friends come down from Toronto to train. Spent 4+ hours taking them through strongman lifts, braced bending, grip and even some arm wrestling. Great visit but I am pooped!

    I'm going to put an ebook out called THREE MINUTES TO BIGGER ARMS ch. 1: No carbs for 2 weeks ch.2: Don't drink anything but coffee all day. ch. 3: Do one 3 minute set of curls in 80° heat. No rest in between reps. If it feels like you should quit, do 15 more reps in case you miscounted. Should sell millions.

    Of course. Finally hit those 20" Pythons I've airways wanted. They actually were measuring them because they were worried about compartment syndrome. I think the top measurement was 52.5 cm. Felt like they were going to explode. 😂 Best pump I ever had. Lasted 4 days! Bwahaha

    Based on 14 peoples max axle and max 2 3/8” NN there is a 5% difference in weight lifted with the axle being the higher amount. Not a huge difference and lack of availability for one or the other implement

    Sun 17/6/18 Grippers CCS 43# 3x10 71# 3x5 91# 3x2 96# 3x2 Mon 18/6/18 Grippers 43# 2x10 71# 2x5 1.5" Block Set 91# 5x1 115# 1x1 131# 1x1 137# 1x1 (two reps attempt with left, missed second with 1 mm) 150# one attempt each hand, no close. 1" Block Set RH: 150# one attempt, messed up the set, no close. 1.5" Block Set LH: 137# 1x1 Speed 115# 5x3 Bench Press & Squats (RSR W2D1). Skipped pinch, I was extremely tired after squats, need to be more serious from now, eat real breakfast and take some energy drinks, I will probably fail if I don't do that.

    Another great idea and video Adam! The adjustable length is very clever. I think instead of cheater bars though, you should call them frugal bars or something similar.

    argh. fallen behind in the log again. still training. status quo in training right now. trying to keep sharp but not over exert myself. Honestly, all i can think about is the mm7. think I will wait till cert day to start logging again. right now I'm planning for the late afternoon June 24th for my attempts. once the cert is over I will switch my attention to the king kong grip comp at the end of October.

    Friday 6/15 Conventional DL: Started with some Romanian DL: 135 X 2 X 10 225 X 2 X 5 275 X 3 325 X 3 Singles 365 X 1 Pretty happy I got the 365, but after reviewing the footage my form was really breaking down. I would say that 350 would be a RPE 10 (with good form). I hit a 2-hand pinch PR too, 187.3.... Very happy with this and is an 11 pound increase since returning from the SJ4's-4-for-Feb Comp. I intentionally did not weigh anything as I was adding plates and lifting. I did not want the weight to get in my head. I think that a 200 lb pinch is possible this year and it is one of my goals. I also did some braced bending for a little project/video I put together.

    Hey, y'all, I wrote an article about an important part of grip strength that pretty much everyone (aside from gripsport competitors) ignores. I cover why it's important, and how to fix the gap. Check it out! https://viknperformance.com/blogs/blog/the-glaring-gap-in-your-grip-strength

    Also everybody elses greasy hands on it could affect the seasoning of it Making it slip out of your hand On the first try especially Vbar or Little Big Horn

    Being known as the cardiac kid by my man Lucas Raymond… I am all for the one minute time limit as a lot of times on the first attempt It slips out of the handsrjust because you’re not adjusted right or for some other reason with the chalk.

    I was gonna add that Laine in a shirt and tie is indeed in front of a large crowd of well known Physical Culture fans. Indeed the UK OHF, as was (now defunct) was comparable to the US AOBS dinners. In fact we had people from both dinners attend each function.
