I wasn't suppose to try grippers tonight because I trained them recently and even hit a little thick bar over the weekend so my hand wasn't fresh but I was feeling strong during a bench press workout tonight so I tried a #3.5 CCS close and I destroyed it. First time trying this since coming back from my injury. I haven't trained CCS in a long time so I fumbled the set a little. I CCS closed this gripper before the injury but never this easy. My crush is stronger than ever. I know fresh I can do even better. Not the best video because I used my phone so lots of motion blur and my buddy doesn't have much experience filming closes. I may try and cert at the gripmas comp this year in December. 4 more months to get even stronger. Crush is feeling dam strong!

My buddy, @Mike Rinderle, recently went through a bout of Rhabdo, and had to spend some time in the hospital.

Rhabdo is also what @Juha Harju had in 2016/2017 and he had some very serious complications and experienced complications for over a year.

I wasn't aware of how serious this was until Juha got it and when Rindo got it, I asked him to be on This Week in Grip with us.

We covered it all on Episod e57.  Please listen to it for the information that Rindo shares.

Than you.

Jedd Johnson loaned me his #4 to attempt so I gave it a go today. It rates 199.5 lbs RGC. I was out drinking late last night so not at my best but I think I got it today. I felt the handles touch. The only problem is my girl isn't use to filming closes so I think the best stills would have came when the gripper was out of frame. I tried holding it as long as I could while the gripper came back in frame. I think I got it on my second attempt also but I felt the handles touch on the first attempt. Here is the video of that first attempt and best stills I could get of the set and close. 


I'll give it a go again in two weeks to see if I can get a more convincing video.
