No see this is exactly how this game works. it is stirring up more conversation. Don't feed the trolls. That is why we have guys like Sam or Timmy or whatever who have 20 banned accounts for the false

I figured he was still living at your house.

So he was #4 RH...why not cert #3.5 or at least a #3 LH? He also claimed to be bending red nails... Legendofjd, he is a video guy, nothing more at the moment. If we never see him again that is all pe

O.K. guys, back on topic then...everybody knows that Euclides seems to have/has made stunning progress - from a mere #2.5 to a #3.5 CCS(!) in a matter of months. Does anybody know whether this would be a singular off-chart-achievement or is someone else known to have progressed similarly fast at or around this level of strength? Just curious...

I'm sure someone reading this thread knows more about this than me so please correct me if I'm wrong. If i'm not mistaken didn't Dave Morton close the #4 in 9 months? I read about this years ago when I first joined the board so I might be off but I think he was officialy certified on the #4 just 9-10 months after first trying a coc gripper.

I am pretty sure Morton closed the 3 right away with little to no gripper training? I think his base hand strength besides good genetics was due to cutting wire all day in his job?

I think I heard from someone that Morton was really into sledge hammer levering a while before he got into grippers. I forget the source. Good way to get a strong grip.

BTW, my personal favorite grip stud doesn't even have an internet video self posted anywhere.

Yeah, I do, dude.

I believe he's also an electrician so I'm sure that didn't hurt

I, for one, appreciate the entertainment. Silverback's run was so good, it's almost better if the videos are faked and he's a troll.

None of this stuff is that serious.

I don't know about the rest of you, but me personally, I haven't been able to eat, sleep, or drink since getting word about this news.

Update:

Have still been having trouble eating and drinking since this news. Its been a couple of weeks already....lost ~15 pounds, strength has decreased >50%. I have nightmares on a regular basis, and have used up all my "sick" days at work. I may buy a gorilla suit and try wearing it throughout the day, it may help get me out of this rut. I haven't been this depressed since watching Bambi!!!

Maybe you should do some feats of strength only in crowded gyms where the attention can feed your ego.

Oh wait... that's all you do anyway. :)

You are correct sir. I DID subscribe for awhile. But I found the vid's very odd and not to my liking. Never at any time did I question your feats, they

were/are quite impressive. But I hate to say it... you are "that" guy in the gym. But I'm not telling you something you didn't already know. :)

I am "that" guy at the gym, and quite frankly have no qualms about it! I hit the weights, and often times get my steel bending training in at the same time. Quite honestly, its a great way to share the sport to the general public. I will have several people come and ask me questions on a daily basis. I share with the what I know, discuss about the benefits of grip/steel bending, and thats me done.

Meaning "was he real or not" :getlost: . Not the best way to respond to well founded doubts, IMO.

Didn't think about it that way... he has become like an urban legend sort of. hopefully he comes back and doesn't follow in the steps of bigfoot, the hide-and-seek champion :grin:

He was funny in the videos.

Used to laugh hard when watching his videos.

It was before me using the gripboard so I dont know much more about him than what I saw in the videos.

Crazy guy.
