Other Training Info

In my opinion, the core lifts are necessary to be competitive in grip (unless you're a genetic freak), so I stay with the basics: squat, deadlift, press, pull-ups and rows. I prefer overhead pressing much more than bench. I've recently incorporated heavy sled dragging with great results.


First and foremost, thanks to Aaron Corcorran for turning me on to grip and putting me on the fast track. Thanks to Chris Rice for his recent help, and for being one of the pillars of grip sport. I also thank Jedd for his inspiring passion for the sport, and for taking the lead with gripsport.org. Thanks also to the guys who keep the MM process working so smoothly: Eric, Bill, Matt, and the judges. Also, I thank the entire Gripboard community for its support and camaraderie.
