  1. https://youtube.com/shorts/VfJS1J5m0lo?feature=share https://youtube.com/shorts/yOj4UqUP1Ho?feature=share Hi guys today I unboxed the parcel sent to me by carl myrescott With a coc4 rgc 209 inside A 220 tetting and a 213 tetting (actually harder than the 220 also mentioned by Carl) I leave here the three videos of the attempts the complete unboxing video lasts more than 10 minutes I will try to avoid it tonight and share it here, I am having difficulty with loading rather I will try to speed it up so much you can see the whole unboxing clearly and roundly anyway. Current body weight 65 kg This along with the elite 7 video can give me an idea of the questions you've been asking yourself waiting to put the third and last piece I wish you all a good day And if by any chance you're training today it's a good workout guys. https://youtube.com/shorts/8rqYr5z22Wo?feature=share

  2. Paul and Becca were not, as far as I know married. Some of you will know that Paul and I lived together for 6+ months. He was that serious about training in, at that time, one of the few places here in the UK with a decent set up for training strongman events and, of course, grip. So he traveled half way across the country to live in my house and train. I used to, as I told Rebecca, rag on him for (he was a LOT younger then) training for 4 hours and sometimes more. He had a habit of reading of a new training technique and adding it in lol. But it was also Paul that got me to go from a 3.5 gripper to regular closes of various CoC4's. Paul's left hand was as good as his right and even recently he closed a 4 on camera. I had the edge in age, experience and, as I told him, willingness to go to a crazy place and, if need be, bleed. But, as he got older, he ended up stronger than me overall. He also used his own experience and time under the iron to become a heck of a coach. He took a self admitted 'damaged' Becca (she's done podcasts and videos on this) and became her partner and helped her via coaching and emotional support become a world class athlete. She is, I believe, currently the worlds strongest woman. I've had Becca in touch and will not comment on the manner of his death until Becca and or his family make that public.

  3. Here is the challenge- 1. MUST have a 12 LB STAMPED sledgehammer (shown on video and weighed) 2. Minimum 32" sledge handle NOT including head (measured on video) 3. Put approx 90% full shot glass of water on sledge head. 4. Grab at very END (no Pete Rose choking up) Video must clearly show this- of sledgehammer and lift entire sledge level for as long as possible and set down without shot glass falling off and spilling everywhere. Current Gripboard members only as of DEC. 1st- no exceptions. Prizes- First 10 who try, regardless of outcome, with proper video get $10 each. First 2 who can go over my 19.2 seconds will get $ 5 bucks for each second that beats my time. Here is my wrist feat that I did in 2020 and feel it was my best wrist feat ever. Tomorrow Iam retiring and wanted to see if anyone can do this wrist feat- I have shown many but nobody has duplicated.

  6. A small note about the passing of Paul Savage. He was one of the first grip guys I trained with. I am going to close a number 4 in his honour. He was always trying to push me to get back into them, and me being an all round grip guy, I never really bothered. It was only last week we were sharing advice on grip coaching and helping eachother with our business ventures. He was truly one of a kind. RIP brother

  7. 2022/12/05 Back from business trip. Feeling tired, lazy, weak, fat, etc. Today I just did I felt like doing. - 2x1 GHP #7 (unrated) MMS - 2x1 CoC #3 (unrated) MMS - 2x2 GoG ESG #6 (unrated) MMS These were ok, but the #3 felt a little bit hard today. - Reverse bent 3 bars of 1/4" x 7" CRS in a half suede (also crushed it) The suede is on the pic, reversing it wasn't hard but crush hurt a little but I needed that. - DU bent a 5/16" x 7.5" CRS in 2/3 leather singles Left wrist still hurts, meh. But one hit. - Braced bent a pretty golden 27/64" (~11mm) x 11.8" (300mm) bolt in doubles I haven't done much braced bending recently, and I still had this big bolt, so...

  8. Just wanted to say it again. Cannon PowerWorks is hands down the best company I've purchased strength equipment from. I recently sent in a handful of grippers to get rated and spoke with the owner (I think his name is Matt) on the phone. He took his time talking with me, answered all of my questions, and his love for grip motivated me to purchase even more grippers lol.

  10. Felt a little tired today before workout and was drained after bending. calisthenics 1 rep each level WD2 w/ 2 rubber bands up to level 2-2.. Then went down to 1 up to level 3-3 orange spring. I'm going to add a rubber band each week until i get to 5 with 3-3.. Then I'm going to go to CROM. I closed the crom once relatively easy not even warmed up but I like gradual steps.

  13. 2022/12/07 DU bending Warmup - high rep wrist curls, pulldowns - high rep closes with the GD Iron 90 up to Level 4 - few sets of pushups - WD2 in DU position with the Orange spring up to (6-6) - CRS (mild steel) 8.5mm x 203mm (0.335" x 8") - Galvanized steel 9mm x 178mm (0.354 x 7") DU doubles (leathers) - Brass HEX 10mm x 190mm (~25/64" x 7.5") - 1 hit, 97 degrees Very strange. The round from the same supplier is much harder than the FBBC brass. But this hex was super mild. - Increased carbon stainless (304H) HEX 8mm x 203mm (~5/16" x 8") - 3 hits, 50 degrees - CRS (SS400) HEX 8mm x 190mm (~5/16" x 7.5") - 1 hit, 45 degrees - Increased carbon stainless (304H) 8mm x 178mm (~5/16" x 7") - 1 hit, 42 degrees DU singles (leather) - Drill rod (SK95) 8.1mm x 178mm (0.319" x 7") - 5 hits, 51 degrees I knew this is from a hard batch. Took me ~2 mins in singles today. - 2x Drill rod (SK95) 7.9mm x 190mm (5/16" x 7.5") - 1 hit, 1 hit, 83 degrees, 85 degrees - 2x CRS (SS400) 8mm x 152mm (~5/16" x 6") - 1 hit, 1 hit, 64 degrees, 67 degrees

  15. Paul’s original account on the GripBoard was “Viper.” He showed up just before I found the GripBoard in 2006. He would have been 19 I guess. I remember being so frustrated by the progress this young guy was making. He got strong on grippers QUICK. It left me lamenting “why can’t I do that?” The GripBoard used to have a status update feature where you could post short almost like “Tweets” to the status feed. I remember one time people were posting their goals and Viper put “I want to grip over everyone!” The wording was just that way. People asked “what do you mean by that?” and he clarified in no uncertain terms “I want to have the strongest grip.” It seems like with very few exceptions he accomplished that.

  16. I can’t wait. I bought the red pill and the heaviest one made to date I believe..Also acquired Gripopaedia from a member here. I couldn’t believe it, never thought I’d get a copy. The red pill blob deserves respect. Hopefully I can get the blob trainer in the spring. For now I’ll row it w/ two hands holding it parallel to body. Just to get my hands used to it.

Vulcan V2 orange spring: 10-11: 1 attempt I got pretty close 10-10: 1 attempt got pretty close as well. 7-7: 3 triples got all 3!! Triples just feel so much better I am done doing singles they simply don't work for me from now on I am just going to do my old routine on everything. I might even experiment with higher reps in the future but for now I am sticking with triples. Recovery: 100 LBS gripper: 3x failure Extensor "bucket": 3x failure

  27. 45min C2 easy-moderate pace 6700m I think. My knees and lower body still have been achy but better. New boots are making huge difference. 12 minute morning yoga, lots of 1 arm plank holds. Yoga is pretty interesting, you don't notice improvements day to day or even week to week. But all of the sudden you are doing stuff you realized was hard a few months back. Videos of girls in tight clothing is also a good way to boost your day.

  37. Fresh off Julia becoming the first woman to total 700kg in UK history last weekend, a few more new enquiries about deadlift related grip coaching have been coming in. Had online client Lee come train grip with me today. Ticked off a few of the "classic" feats including repping a #3 and 20kg by the hub. He brought an HG350 along, we both closed it without much trouble. Grippers- loads of volume and reps up to Elitex5 , hg350 x 5, #3.5x2,1,miss Basically the same with each hand. Pinch block (slippery AF) 103kg for a PR with a narrow miss at 105.5kg, just come forward before lockout but grip never went/no slippage. Showed off with Hubs, doing rear delt flyes with them, etc. Finished with some armwrestling lifts.

  41. "Here's a training session I completed yesterday evening after work. I'm going well on my road to the tall duke and tough 303 SS is paying off but it felt really great to finish off with a bend on a 207k G8! I'll never get over how tough these guys are, they're always challenging and pleasing to finish. The icing on the cake was the Kerckhaert SX7... I love horseshoe bending and after I bend the tall duke I have a few shoes I'll be focused on. It was my first HS bend in months and damn it felt good!"

  42. Thanks for posting this Gripmonster Thom- you know I have incredible admiration for your grip strength! Andrew has a very nice grip for his size and age - he was the star of the day for sure. We had a great time, great lifts and holds and at conclusion many hugs and tears of joy for what we have been through as a family the past year and a half.

  43. With 10 pounds, I am pretty sure could work up to lifting it without spilling and putting it back down, although I couldn't do it at all on first try and I doubt I'd hit 19 seconds. I definitely need to work on form and balance. 12 pounds? Ha! That's elite, man. For any length of time. Kudos to you for that record!

  45. Powerlifting competition is over so it's time for some griptraining again Finally tried the Blob Trainer and lifted easily 14,20kg. First serious goal is 20kg! Attached the discs in such a way so that the lift could simulate Blob lifting as accurately as possible. https://youtube.com/shorts/UdY0ro6uFYQ?feature=share

  46. I forgot to mention this but as some of you guys have noticed I have gone back to doing triples on the Ivanko. This was my very first routine back when I first got the Ivanko. I came up with this routine myself. For some odd reason singles don't work that well for me on the Ivanko. Triples feel great and I instantly feel stronger after doing them and I am also less fatigued. I might even experiment with triples on the Vulcan or torsion spring grippers down the road.

  47. It's very typical of how I train. With clients, if they can handle volume, the progress is always unreal. If they can't, we gradually up the work, until they can to a degree, and progress soon catches up. The trick is knowing when to stop before skin tears etc.
