    The North American Grip Sport Championships is a fixture on my annual grip sport calendar. I feel it's a contest that is uniquely positioned to attract many of the best grip athletes from both the USA and Canada. Last year, when both countries had several competitors taking part, the result was a very fun atmosphere. Once again, the country vs. country element was cool, although unfortunately both teams were smaller. Four fifths of Team Canada (me, Justin Major, Adam Chappell, and Natasha Batt), left Ottawa at 5am Saturday morning and began driving due south until we reached Elmira a little past 10am. Nick Carignan, our fifth member, had already arrived (he was coming from the west). We knew our chances of successfully defending the team title were small, but we were ready try as hard as possible. I was happy to see the contest start with the Silver Bullet. While I've historically done well in this event, I was a bit worried following my most recent "non"-performance on the SB at the Arnold Armlifting contest in March when I failed to get a hold. But this time, I held the 3.5 for almost 30 seconds (a contest PR). I felt I could have gone about 10 seconds longer, but my pinky started slipping off the end of the handle and I couldn't stop it... A handful of competitors managed holds with the 4, but having the best time with the 3.5, I was happy with my standing. I was also very happy for my friend Adam to manage a hold with the 3.5 -- he's only been training for grip sport for about two months! Next up was the 2 3/8" Napalm's Nightmare. I expected to do well in this event, and I managed to get the heaviest lift. I even went for the overall world record on my fourth attempt, but it wasn't to be on this day. A lot of people lifted more weight than last year in this event, which was awesome to see. At this point in the contest, I decided it would be a good time to attempt to lift Luke's new 207-lb challenge dumbbell. It has the same handle dimensions as the Inch, but is 35 lbs heavier. I lifted it, got both ends of the bell above my knees, but but wasn't able to lock it out. I wasn't successful, but feel I'll get it next time. The Euro went up well. I lifted 217 lbs on my third attempt, and went for 227 for my fourth. A successful lift would have been a PR, but I wasn't able to get it. I was most happy with my Jug performance. I have to say that the Jug is extremely well seasoned -- much more than mine. Consequently, I was able to get a huge 32-lb PR! I lifted 264 lbs, which tied for the second highest weight lifted with the device. Going into the medley, I was in second place overall. I knew that if I could complete at least 20 feats, I would secure my placing. Going in I also knew I was able to do more than 20 of them, but there was no guarantee that I could do them all in 2 minutes at the end of a long day. Luckily, things went my way and I completed 21 feats in the allotted time. The end result is that I finished in second place overall: my best finish at the NAGS Championship. As for the team title, Canada fell a bit short. Congratulations Team USA! Thank you Jedd for hosting yet another great NAGS Championship! And thanks for designing a separate medley just for Natasha. She really enjoyed it!

    The Europa Games this year was fairly well run. I don’t know how many people attended the expo, it was never too crowded compared to what you see in Ohio or California. Clay and Mike crashed at my house Friday evening after they drive up from Austin. Saturday I was at the contest booth demonstrating the Thomas Inch Dumbbell and speaking with passerby’s. Clay ran a challenge to lift the bell. Only 7 total through the day could lift it- as you would predict all 120+ strongmen competitors. Sunday was the event. The events were last man standing Rolling Thunder, lms Double thumb blaster, lms little big horn, silver bullet hold, lms 3” Saxon bar lift. rolling thunder went even better than I projected. I’ve been consistent with 100 kg on my hardest handle and was thinking I would see 100-102 kg. I ended up with a easy 105 kg but could not lift 107.5. PR for contest for me. Tanner made the best lift with 115 kg. He stopped there to save for other events- in my view he was good for another 5-7.5 kg. Thumb blaster is new to me. I like it, it reminds me of pinching on a euro with a thin set up. I was successful with 105 kg. Tanner took first with 110 kg. Little big horn has always been a good event for me. I have not used the handle much this year but tend to be consistent between 98-102 kg. I had a very easy lift on 105 kg and considered a WR attempt of 109.3 kg. I had lifts both left and right but couldn’t stand all the way up. The 105 kg was the top lift for the event. PR for contest for me. Silver bullet has been my most improved event this year. At the Arnold I had a 2 second hold with a 4 to secure 2nd place- that was the number to surpass. I had a 6.8 #4 hold which I was happy with. Robert in the 60 kg class made a 2.5 hold, Danny Faulkner in 80 kg a 3.5 hold. I need to see the score sheet for their times. Steve in the 125+ class had a 8.9 hold with the #4 I believe it was his first go at it in a contest. Tanner ran away with 1st place making a 32 second hold on the #4. 3” Saxon bar was the last event. This was a brand spanking new Sorinex bar. I had a successful 112.5 kg lift the week before the event so I was feeling good. Tanner and I both lifted 110 kg. I was very close to my predicted numbers in all events. I feel the report card for the meet is how close I’m able to understand where I can be on game day. Clay set up a monitor at the score table so everyone could see results. I think that really helped the crowd get in to the game as they could understand what was going on. Throughout the event spectators watched and spoke with lifters. Well executed from start to finish. PS Clay had his recorder so I would imagine soon the film of all events will be posted

    On Friday evening, I drove myself the two hours from the parking lot near my office in Manhattan's Chinatown to the entrance of the Holland Tunnel nearly a mile away and figured, heck, I've come this far, I may as well drive the other 200 miles to the hotel and attend NAGS. Fortunately, and unlike Anton and Anthony, at no point during the remainder of the trip did it take me an hour to go a mile. But to their credit, when they had driven themselves the five hours from NYC to 7 miles out of NYC in North Jersey, they also decided to go the next 190 miles. The traffic simply could not deter us. It's a good thing, too, because if we hadn't shown up, there wouldn't have been that many people for everyone else at the comp to beat! This must be the only comp where someone PR'd on all four events and yet came in last (sorry Anthony!). And his PR's were not shabby - more than body weight on Euro and jug, around 250 on a 2 3/8 Napalm Nightmare, and several seconds on a COC 3.5 Silver Bullet. (Yeah, 3.5). But, at least he was the lightest guy there by quite a bit. Also occupying some of those coveted bottom spots: Anton Torella and me. Like Anthony, Anton and I pretty easily PR'd on our second attempts at the best seasoned jug we ever saw, at 173, and figured we'd take a 20 pound jump to 193 because of the antigravitational properties we had just observed at 173. We all got good air on 193, but failed it, and had to take our second attempts as the final. IN our defense, the three of us looked at Monstrous Dave-No-Last-Name and even more monstrous Abner of the Elite -- a guy who deadlifts FOUR TIMES BODY WEIGHT (180 x 4 = SEVEN FUGGIN HUNDRED TWENTY POUNDS!) -- and figured, ok, we either get to 200 or we lose anyway, so may as well be bold. Anton and I also did 3.5 on the silver bullet, for long enough to get a few bonus points, losing that event to Rindo only because Rindo managed to get the 4 for one second. Anton PR'd on the Euro, and I got body weight at 181 which was not a PR but I PR'd at 295 on the Napalm Nightmare 2 3/8, which made me pretty happy because I can barely do that on a 2-inch axle. On the medley, the three of us continued to pad the room for the big guns, scoring 8, 10, and 11 of the 20 possible points offered on 25 items to try. I can't remember the specific events for my buds, but I got my 11 points with: 2 25s to platform, hub 45 to platform, COC 3 silver bullet, COC 2 close, inch pinch 45 pounds to lockout, hub 45 pounds to lockout, shot loadable inch to above knee, stub to platform, 56-pound block to platform, 25-pound plate curl (that was harder than it should have been) and tearing a deck of cards. Thanks to Tim Butler, who was not there, for teaching me how to do the cards. I think I did it in 5 seconds, and if someone hadn't taken them out of the box already, I think I'd have done them in the box in 6. I ran out of time without trying the 12-lb sledge lever, which I did twice in warm up but just didn't get to, and without a second shot at the anvil to platform, which I also did twice during warm-up but missed and postponed during the medley because I wanted to get what I was sure of first. I was pleased with a total of 11, which tied the other two 83kgs who otherwise whooped me. Well, except on the SB they didn't whoop me, because Jedd's 3.5 remained my bitch ( I got the same 12 seconds I got at Cupid's). We don't know what the big guys got because they started their warmups after we were done with our 4th attempts and had gone out to drink I mean in the other room to warm up for the next events ... but seriously, Justin and Joe had a typical battle for the top spot, and Rindo put in a good word for us old guys in the 50 + club. Luke Raymond and Eric Roussain hit huge numbers as always, and Natasha from Canada chased some of her own PR's in between insisting to me that she was old enough to remember what she was doing "decades ago." Jedd, as always, ran a tight and fair comp, other than not giving me the COC 3 close in the medley, which I thought was close enough for medley lol. There might have been a hair's breadth, OK. But he was fair, because he called it the same way for all. At the end, I was surprised find out that there was a vote for most inspiring lifter at the comp. I voted for Anthony C, who PR'd on everything he touched, and I thought that brand-new Abner-of-the-720 and brand-old Rindo-of-the-AARP were close seconds. Yet somehow, the votes sent the $50 IM gift card to ME. Inspiring? Moi? Why thank you, now I can pay shipping on my next IM order ... I think I left out a couple of guys, sorry. I enjoyed this comp very much, felt like I got a decent workout doing it, and look forward to getting a little more serious for King KOng since my left wrist is healing and I see the light at the middle of the tunnel at work this summer. Be well everyone, see you all here or at comps, Vin

    Well, hopefully I can take advantage of it! And I initially planned on making an attempt on the 3.5 before I turned 20. Unfortunately some minor wrist tweaks set me back a bit and I had to take it slow from there, but the 3.5 is in my sights!

    My first attempt to hold a bullet in this year. After january, my little finger and ring finger were practically paralyzed due to tunnel syndrome. I still have poor control over them and do not feel the skin on the edge of the palm and little finger, but strength slowly returns...

    Started my training for KING KONG today. PR on the shallow Dubhub. This is a little higher than the #1 on Barrel Strength's website, but I think Tanner @Boulderbrewand 1 or 2 people on InstaMyFace have done 70lbs. Been awhile since I touched it, so pretty darn happy. Might have had another pound or two in me, but I need to toughen up the skin first. Trying to avoid all these nagging skin tears.

    I thought it would be fun to put together a list of the top 10 active grip athletes in North America. To come up with the list, I reviewed results from GSI and Armlifting USA contests held over the past year and tried to consider who would be most likely to perform best in an open weight grip contest that tested many different aspects of grip strength. Here's what I've come up with: 1 - Jedd Johnson 2 - Tanner Merkle 3 - Carl Myerscough 4 - Gil Goodman 5 - Adam Glass 6 - Kody Burns 7 - Aaron Corcorran 8 - Andrew Durniat 9 - Luke Raymond 10 - Eric Roussin I developed this list for fun - please don't consider it as gospel! And please don't feel offended if you don't see your name. I'm interested in hearing people's thoughts on this list. Am I way off? Bang on? Did I forget anyone who should definitely be in the top 10? I also think it would be fun to see other people's lists.

    One of my favorite guys to compete against, and one of the most valuable to Grip Sport behind the scenes. Thanks for all you do for us as a community, my man, and great job. Your performance across the board just keeps getting better and better. I was happiest of all to see you get your successful hold on the bullet. My heart flattened for you, when what happened took place at the Arnold. To many more bro!

    In all the times people have put together rankings, this is the first time I recall being at the top of the list. Thank you, Eric, for putting it together. It would be AWESOME to have all these dudes at the same competition to see who comes out on top. That's for sure.

    Mike thank you. A brand new out of package coc was not used for our attempts. We will have that for the 23rd of June event @The Fort Worth Metroflex. Judging by Tanners recent progress I believe this month he will extend the record. He is now successfully loading and holding the SB on a GHP 10 rated at 254#.

    I did bend today, but didn't get to The Gold. My best today was a 8.375" piece of 12L14 steel trimmed down to .340, so just under 11/32. My goal for today was a .360 piece. I felt strong and every thing felt good, but the pain in my hands got to be too much. I could tell when I was warming up that I wasn't healed from last time. 5/16 12L14 hurt but I pushed through a few more. So I'm disappointed I didn't get the .360, but proud I pushed through the pain to get a couple big bends. I'm also glad that the strength was there, I was ready to go heavier, it just felt like my fingers were about to break. I'm not going to bend for 2 weeks, to let my hands/fingers heal. I will work on my wrist strength and crush in the mean time. I will see how heavy I can bend the last weekend of June.

    So someone revived a 8 years old thread and got me thinking. Mr. Coleman tried to close a CoC #3 in a weird way here. That is very hard to do. My question is, can anyone close a #3 like that? Yes? Have a video? I want 99.999% certain that Ronnie would've closed it if the hand placement is right. I did that style long ago in 2011 and couldn't close a #2.

    The Mid-Summer Grip Classic is coming up in five weeks, so I thought it would be a good time to start talking up this contest. First, a run through of the five events: 20mm Block Set Grippers. I’ve been hosting grip contests since 2007, and this will be the first time that I’m including this event. I’ve never been a huge fan of grippers because of the technique required – first-time competitors can be at a huge disadvantage. But I’m not expecting many newbies at this particular contest, and I finally have a decent assortment of rated grippers. Plus, Yves Gravelle has gone all in on grip sport and in recent months has purchased lots of grippers, too. Together, we’ll have 30-40 rated grippers from which to choose. Two-Hand Flask. I included this event in this year’s Canadian Nationals. It was well-received, and quick to run. And I have a feeling some huge numbers will be lifted… Wrist Wrench. I simply love this test of wrist flexion strength. Lots of my regular competitors are also armwrestlers, and they tend to do well in this event. Justin Major has lifted 127 lbs with the Wrist Wrench in a contest. Anyone want to try to beat him? Mini Inch Pinch. Seldom contested, I’m looking forwarded to seeing what type of weights will be lifted. This is a key pinch style lift, similar to the Stub and Half Penny, but without the pain! 30-Item Medley. I’m not going to lie: this medley is a bit tougher than the ones I’ve organized in the past. But the level of competition continues to rise, and I think raising the degree of difficulty is required. Nothing on the list is impossible, but I think it will be quite a feat if someone gets them all… Do these event descriptions whet your appetite? Then consider coming to Ottawa on July 20th!

    My write-up that I posted on Facebook Well, I am happy to say that I successfully regained the North American Absolute Championship this past weekend, held at Titan Strength Gym in Elmira, NY, (owned by Brad Martin) To compete at the North American Championship, you must qualify by either placing high enough in a sanctioned grip contest or provide video evidence of certain lifts. There are multiple weight classes for men and women to compete in, and each weight class winner earns the title, "North American Champion," and receives a medal. The overall winner is the competitor with the highest overall score, and I was able to pull that off this year. Last year's champion was my good friend and training partner, Lucas Raymond. He took first in the 4th event, the Jug Lift and won the 93kg weight class. The top Canadian competitor, Eric Roussin, finished second in the overall. He took first in the 2nd event, the Napalm's Nightmare Lift, a challenge I invented. Eric also became the 105kg champion. Lucas, Eric, and I all tied in the 5th event, the Medley, a speed event, where you had to try to compete at least 20 out of 25 challenges inside 2 minutes. All three of us got the maximum 20 points. I was able to finish in 1st place in the 1st and 3rd events, the Silver Bullet Hold and the Two Hands Pinch, respectively. We also have a team championship, where Canada and United States compete against each other. The USA brought home the Team Trophy (sponsored by Mr Roussin - thanks Eric!) But the most important thing is every one was able to put together a great competition and have a good day on the grip platform. It's always sweet to meet the new lifters, such as Natasha Batt & Adam Chappelle from Canada, and Abner Ivan Nazario, from New Jersey, and see long time friends who I've completed with for many years. To celebrate the win, I'll be coming out with some pretty cool announcements, so please stay tuned for that!

    My second hardest long bar bend ever! A 10x70mm x 120cm (3/8" x 2 3/4" x 47.2") flatbar. As I was the first man ever to bend such a bar, I named it BALMUNG, after the infamous sword of "Siegfried - the Dragon Slayer" from the heroic epos Nibelungenlied. You will understand, when you see an unbent bar. David Horne honored me once again, as he included this bar to his World-of-Grip Grip Feats List of extraordinary steel bends. http://www.davidhorne-gripmaster.com/gripfeats.html ONE MORE BAR TO GO!!! Go bend some steel!

    A trained Durniat would be 1 or 2...but like Eric said he isnt focusing on that so his lifts are just speculation now. My List: 1. Jedd Johnson 2. Tanner Merkle 3. Carl Myerscough 4. Kody Burns 5. Adam Glass 6. Gil Goodman 7. Andrew Durniat 8. Aaron Corcorran 9. Eric Roussin 10. Clay Edgin/Joel Dirks (need more contest info) -this would be dependent on events; I fall too far behind on thickbar and would require a vbar lift to have a chance to make up ground.

    June 10, 2019 Before Supper Week 7. I can’t believe how much I cooked my entire back last week. Must’ve been the hex bar deads. Top to bottom; traps, lats, rhomboids, erectors, obliques,.... everything. Bow Bar Squat wu to 156k x 5 x 5r GHR x 9/9/8 McGill Pull-ups x 281 x 10 x 1r Filler Stuff Wrist Wrench to 55.5/60.5/65.5 x 1 70.5 x 0/1 - good idea of where the top is now. Shitty. Blob Loads 40, Blob Holds 45 - do a hold then immediately into reps Hold - 2r, 3 x Hold - 4r Air Bike - getting late. I’ll hit it tomorrow.

    That's about as good a list as you could come up with. Probably because it's based on data vs. opinion. I think Jedd and Tanner are probably pretty interchangeable at this point and the winner between them would be totally dependent on the events. 1A & 1B maybe? Lol Good stuff Eric.

    LOL to offended if I don't see my name ... I have heard of all of those names and I can be plenty proud of my own abilities while at the same time knowing that these ten are elite. I might add Justin Major and Joe Sullivan because they might be able to beat some of those on this list from time to time.

    Always fun to compete with you Eric. Super strong and a heck of a nice guy. In fact, that pretty much sums up the whole crew from Canada. Great performance and congrats on a great placing!

    Hey Tom, thanks for the kind words my friend. According to AZ grips ratings... a source I really trust btw, they rate anywhere from mid 500’s to mid 600-lbs range. I’d say it had to be around a 600lb bar was it wasn’t far off from a KOAB imho... I took it down in around 2:00- 2:30 minutes or so it was a tough bar no doubt for me. Still at it guys... slowly but surely!! Btw, @PITTisKING is very close imo... he has the size & strength to get the job done! Good luck to you brother & we will continue to encourage each other on this huge bar they call the Gold-Nail! Slay the dragon! 💪🏻💯🐉 Rob

    Maybe. Yeah I have probably tried it ten times, but still lots of guys will pull over 220 and Vbar has always been hard for me. Do you do timed holds? Those got my Crusher a lot stronger. I went from 198 to about 235 just doing 3 rounds of heavy singles followed by 3 sets of five 8 second holds. Twice a week i guess I deleted my old video of when 198 was an absolute max, but here you can see 203 is my clear limit. All I did to get stronger was the workout above ^^^

    I'm experiencing that hot and cold problem as well. About a month ago I hit 224 for one and the next session hit 222 for 4 singles and 200 felt like I could hold it forever. I haven't hit even 215 since. I'm convinced it's a cns issue like grippers for me. This morning, for instance, I was PR'ing with the Gold Bar, but had drop back to 185 before I could do holds with 200. I couldn't even break 200 off of the ground in the first effort. At this point I'm at a loss trying to realize some consistency.

    Thanks, bro, I will have to try this next gripper day to see, for fun

    You look plenty strong enough in the video! I would say just stick to IMP's and 7" lengths to condition yourself for the cert and you'll be ready very soon. I always trained with IMP's BBW's, and doubles simultaneously (meaning in the same program). I pushed my strength gains up bending in the doubles and conditioned my hands and fingers with the IMP's. I'm not saying that particular training style or program would work for you or anyone else, but I thought I would just explain my motivations for why I trained like that in case you were curious. Good luck brother you are very close!

    Joe I would very much enjoy having you out to sunny Fort Worth. DFW is a more affordable airport to travel to and there are tens of thousands of things to do here for a weekend
