  1. So its official! I'm the 278 guy in the world to be certified on captains of crush #3! https://ironmind.com/news/Thom-Fingalsson-Certifies-on-the-Captains-of-Crush-No.-3-Gripper/ " Well, IronMind would like to thank Thom Fingalsson for making our job so easy—the referees were unanimous is commenting in giving Thom’s attempt the highest marks: “Well done.” “A strong young man.” And how about: “That is one outstanding close. Very good credit card insert. And, no question on the handles being closed."

  2. The most serious lift I’ve ever seen in a while. Giant diameter 100 lb plates. Chris Rice @climber511 featured these in a number of contest medleys. The only person to ever lift them has been Chad Woodall. Today Tanner lifted then twice. Unbelievable. So many amazing North American lifters have failed to lift these. A true feat of the year. Tanner followed up this by two hand pinching one of my anvils. On Eric’s scale it weighed 180.9 lb- 4” spread on the top with a sharp rim. Here is Tanner Inch replica plus anvil horn lift Here a thumbless inch

  3. I met Khaled Awa Jashell after Devon Larrat said he couldn't top roll him and has amazing grip. Nice guy. Very kind and a strong man. Intelligent too. 9.1 Inches hand. Hand span is 11.2 inches. Thumbs are long. Longer than Jedd Johnson I guess. Thick fingers. Palms 5 inches. Big forearms almost like mine without training. Wrist size is also almost like mine at 8.2 inches (mine 8.3 inches). STRONG dude whom Devon Larrat couldn't top roll. Can beat the Indian national champion in Armwrestling without training. Can he beat me in grip? Maybe. Thick bar for sure as he can go head to head with the l

  8. When the itch to resume writing profiles returned, one name kept coming to the top of the list. Don Cummings. In 4-5 short years, Don had accomplished more than most competitors achieve in a lifetime. When it comes to bending…he has no weaknesses. Whether Braced, Unbraced, or Snapping Steel, he has performed multiple elite bends in each discipline…several being World Records. While there is a more comprehensive list of feats at the bottom of this profile, I'd like to mention a few to start things off. I'll stick to a few that might be more recognizable to no

  12. Hello friends. First something general to say: I have been on the Grip Board for about 3 years now, and I believe I have been to about 10 comps - enough that I am not actually counting anymore, but hopefully just the tip of the iceberg as to the rest of my life. All have been positive experiences, and this one deserves a special place as the first one post-COVID. Kudos for people of all different views about this to have come together and managed to complete a full, legit comp in a way that seemed pretty safe and still left nothing to be desired. Was everyone fully masked up at all times?

  14. Cheers to all steelbenders out there! In this thread I represent you a new steel bending cert. With permission of the Gripboard Admins, a lot of work in the last months and with the support of @camz @Truman and @Tommy J. here is finally a new cert for everyone. From beginner to an elite athlete. It´s a 100% non Profit project. The bolts and the pads you can get for only the self costs. No profit! BUT there is a Prize Money for the two hardest bolts which you can earn after a succesfull cert We have six different bolts where every single one has the same measurements: 8mm x

  15. That was the question I've been asking myself. After not training then for 3+ years, and just lifting them one handed here and there, could I still get it? Finally last night, I had to give it a try.

  16. Myself and my trainer parters had only been training for about a month leading up to this competition. Mainly because of me and climbing the Mash Monster Ladder. I took alot of time off from other training to achieve that. We loaded up friday night and made the 5 1/2 hour drive from Oklahoma to Texas. We strategized and devised a gameplan on how we were going to approach the competition (Weight jumps,warmup period, etc). We got into town around 11:30pm and went straight to the hotel to pass out. Saturday morning we woke up early and i could tell everyone was dialed in and re

  22. The misc forum was taken away so here are a few updated pics. Complete power rack and gripper caddy among other things. Mounted a TV on a nice swivel and tilting/telescoping mount from harbor freight. Only 13.00 highly recommended. Have a Texas power bar on order and always looking out for plates. Hoping by fall I have almost all I need.

  23. Yes this is Armwrestling but with all the grip training Khaled went through, Larry and the rest doesn't have a chance at all. In straps Larry did beat Khaled, but without it's impossible. All the grip plus AW specific grip specific paid off well. Suhail was very annoyed by it and tomorrow him and Larry are coming to train with grip. Should I share everything I thought Khaled ? Well it will not work as good as to Khaled, because of his hand size advantage. But, Khaled said not to teach anyone anything until schoolboy comes. He wants to defeat schoolboy so bad now.

  24. I haven't seen anyone repping the Millennium strict @Mywor yeah or I got it wrong again? . Carl did a single and now Khaled did for easy 3. Wow. This was done on Friday September the 25th 2020. Two days ago. He did little bench, deadlifts and should press prior to grip. He then warmed up by lifting the 172 pounds Inch. Then comes the Millennium for reps. Notice the controlled lowering. He attempted Millennium trainer for reps, same but with added 20 pounds. CoC 2.5 closes for reps. Inch plus blob curl for reps. 20 sledge hammer lever. 2 hand pinch. TTK. Fatman for reps and two fingers. Smaller

Sorry for blowing my own trumpet, but right now everything is going in to the right direction.

  27. After seeing the @Too Tall do 40 reps with his Blob 50 in a little over 3min, I decided I wanted to try to do 100 lifts on my Blob 50 in less than 10min. I succeeded in getting 104 reps (extras in case I miscounted) in 8:33. I also got a pretty bad flapper on my left thumb in the last set. I would love to see some other folks give this a try.

  28. So, a month or so ago, I endeavored to build a rig to rate steel. In the process I built a version of the 2.0 rig that used a winch and a crane scale attached to two fixed points on a squat rack to rate steel, but after trying to rate a few bars I decided something had to be changed. With that system, after bending a bar to the requisite 30 degrees, the strain (stretch or deformation) of the bar caused the rating to drop precipitously as soon as I stopped cranking on the winch, making it very difficult for me to maintain consistent ratings. So, I had to figure out a way to eliminate the factor

  31. This is only for educational purpose. I hope we keep it civil. So there are ways cheaters do to fake a gripper close. I attempted one. First time was a miserable failure which ended in so much laughter. Second one was successful. It was something we thought on the spot to do. Clean people of course won't get offended by this video.

  32. So today after work I took Khaled for his first MMA training and Brazilian Jujitsu which lasted 2.5 hours. We then went to my place and I trained him in grip. He (when we met me at my office) curled 20KG plate. Not as quite strict or like my crazy thick olympic size 45 pounds plate. But got it. He then should pressed up to 100 kg. Nothing serious. Then he easily closed my CoC 2.5 then easy 3 then average 3 all no set. Then almost no set my CoC 3.5. Crazy strong as he is finding his sweet spot now. All thanks to Jonas from Sweden @Griparn for sending him a couple of grippers to train. I showed

  34. I like to do a birthday challenge each year. This year, I thought I would braced bend 42 Golds for my 42nd birthday. I ordered 60 for today, in case I felt good and could do more. Leading up to today, I bent 5, then 10 next training session, then 15, then 22 last week. My hands tore bad on 22, which was great for today because they healed with real tough callouses in the right places. I thought 42 would be my limit today. I woke up at 5 am and could not get back to sleep and just felt very energized and focused. I bent this morning as it is a high of 89 degrees today. I felt strong and got i

  36. Came down to Texas this weekend to hangout and just try to PR on some of my current lifts. The comp was well ran like always. We did silver bullet first event. Of course in @Boulderbrew Tanner Merkle fashion he put up a big 30 sec hold on the #4. I then went and put up a big PR for myself with 22sec on the #4. next event was the rolling thunder this and axle are both events that i need to get significantly better at. For me patience and consistency are my enemies! But I registered 183 on rolling thunder and 340 on axle which are both good numbers to start the year. Adam and Tann

  37. Mine is easy. No video, but it’s on Armlifting USA’s website under results, June 30, 2013. IronMind Hub, 4th event of the 5 event competition. I was, to my knowledge, the last person to beat Mike Burke in any Grip event in a contest. Three of us successfully pulled 64 on an unseasoned hub. Alexey and Mike both failed at 69 lbs. I successfully high pulled it. Some Russian woman, who was with some sort of Russian press to do a story on Alexey, who was making his American debut, said to me in an Ivan Drago-like accent and cadence: “You are hero”. 😎 Definitely the Al Bundy Sports Moment

  38. 1.5” wraps Still got some horse power. Pretty far out from being able to bend these in IMP’s again. Y’all are giving me the bending bug. I may give it another run. Maybe... i think this is my first time doing any kind of voice over on a vid. Not sure how I feel about it yet.

  39. I think it´s time for an own thread, as the last days show, that this year can become very special again for the steel bending world. it started with the following threads from Tommy: And as it looks there will be some great comebacks in steel bending. Tommy and I try to contact several benders all over the world to rise steel bending again in a new shine and get all of the great guys out of retirement. So dust your pads off, crab some steel and have a good time with the feats of strength. Time to hunt bigger steel than in the past! This thread is for all the

  42. This was the first year I did any sort of birthday challenge. I decided to do 38 reps at 380, just dipping my toe in the water to see . I’d planned to go 11-10-9-8 but that didn’t work out as planned. First set is the video linked below. Form was all over the place but especially lazy in this first set. (Probably should have waited to have the celebratory sherry and cigar till after the deadlift party.) Bonus points if you recognize the music. No bonus points for guessing how old I am.

  45. As it is important to get also new benders in line, here are some thoughts for the beginning and the intermediate: To strive for the red nail cert there are some simple facts: only bending in IMP´s and only bending 7" bars. This is very important to get the hands familiar with the pads and the shoulder with the length of the bar. No experiments, stuck with it till the red nail cert is official. For the Progression: Here in europe it is very simple because we have CRS in 6mm, 7mm and 8mm. The average CRS 8mm is a little bit harder than a red, feels like typical Bastard. so you have to
