Many dudes knows it already but here it is: 2007 my pectoralis major went totally broken at bench press. Surgeon operated it and I started easy rehab. In the same year I saw how Teemu Ilvesniemi crus

#3.5 @ 175.2 lbs. 20mm block set.

Juha that is an unreal close. The slow motion sound was perfect. Amazing!

Wow Martin!!! Super freaky strength man. I can't think of anyone who would beat you in a gripper contest where both left and right hands were contested.

After a 10 month dry spell, I have a new MMS gripper PR! I last closed my #3 in March of 2008 when Chris Mathison was at my house. Since then I have got 155-159 grippers down to a gnat's ass (like my 155lb GM), but never managed a solid close I was happy with. So I borrowered a couple grippers from Luke and calibrated it shortly after closing it. 152lb #3. Hooray! :D

Paul Knight's #4 close was a 199lb calibrated gripper from John Eaton, wasn't it?

Yo!

The BBSE that I used belongs to Arne Persson.

It's two different BBSE.

it was calibrated at Gripmas and came out to 199. I didn't calibrate it myself and I already sent it back to Aaron. I've had grippers feel harder than what they calibrate at and also had grippers feel easier than what they calibrated at, so I could'nt tell you without me calibrating it myself - thanks

Holy cow, what an amazing close by Gabriel. He continues to impress. I'm guessing it's an RB330 based on this video recently posted--http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmweJKkzWiI&feature=channel_page

Thanks.

Axel Hoffmann - who sells the RB products in Germany - rate them for me. It's a RB330.

The close isn't perfect because my hand was shaking very much. I'll try it again on Thursday.

180lbs 8.6oz Super Elite

Wow, those super elites seem to vary a lot for some reason than any other BB gripper. Magnus has a 225lb SE, and yours is only 180. And from what I've been seeing even normal ones are anywhere from 190 to 205lbs which is a lot considering BBs are usually consistent and good quality.

I have a SE that's tougher to chest crush then either of my #4's and RB400 ~ except maybe my old #4.
