What's In Your Collection De Grip?

800lbs demolition ball.

That is the coolest thing I've ever heard. I'd be building a platform to stand on so you could do a Bavarian type DL or Hip lifts.

I'm glad to see I share a level of nuttiness with many here.

All '07 and each as far as I can tell slot in pretty well on resistance.

A bag of Expand your Hand Bands.

800g balls used for dex drills.

One ISG with 4 springs; haven't used since I got this stash of CoCs

A large cast iron frying pan; a bag of leadshot attached to its loop for levering.

A bag of heavy stuff to pinch, hold and freestanding wrist-roll. Curls pretty much sick with it, so have to get something else for that; barbell be nice but that's a overkilling just for a decent curl.

Left Out The Formulator .. Love that device !! Also have all 4 GripMaster level Grippers for individual finger training. I love this for pinky training. Also have one of the handles that you load weights on end, and you then place your forearm on a bench (or on your thigh) and twist the handle from side to side with weights just on one end of the bar. I forget what its called. I think IM sells it. Its gotta help ones wrist strength for bending I would think ??

Being young with no renewable income and having an annoying amount of buyer's remorse (when I do have it), I don't have a ton of stuff, but I still have trouble organizing it :cool ...




-Two #2's (one's like a 1.7, the other's about regular)




-HG300 (2.4-2.5)

-Two Wal-Mart Grippers

T-#2 are filed; #3.5 is for negatives.

-Expand Bands

-3 Small Dexterity balls

-2 20 lb. blockweights

lol. I'd buy more grippers from places that aren't ironmind, but as I said I'm young and don't have my own credit card etc. so I don't like messing with other sites that require more emailing and stuff. But soon, I will.
