You could use some light bands for high reps to help out that shoulder. The fact that there is little eccentric allows for blood to be pumped with very minimal tissue damage.

Thank you i have been using bands and they really seem to help.

Great thread, Joshua! I hope to read about your successful cert on the Ironmind website next Wednesday. I wrote an article about my path from the Trainer to certified on the #3 back in 2011. I ce

I have only refereed one cert -- Adam Glass. I showed up at Adam's gym, we opened the gripper, and he shut it. No warm up, no chalk. I think I even interrupted some other workout he was doing. I

Well due to shoulder problems i went and seen my doc, she xrayed it and it looked fine its just overuse that caused it. She gave me meds and i rescheduled my cert for next friday. By the way i fel

I have had my time. I welcome the new blood following their own path. When you find in your heart and mind where "you stand "and you don't have to prove, just enjoy , it becomes the best of times. Closing the three doesn't matter as much as those that became interested in grip strength or were inspired to a healthier life by me doing so.That's what matters to me. Richard Sorin

I was just checking to see if there was news. That sucks bro. That's the hardest part with these kind of certs. There is no ideal time span as in running, where a certain distance can be desirable between let's say 20 or 25 minutes. The gripper is closed or it isn't.

You stepped up so that's good. Heal up and repeat ;-) you'll be on the list.

That definitely didn't help. It was just bad luck with you not feeling well (sore shoulder and being sick). It also didn't help that you got a tough one. Next time Josh. You will bounce back.

I no, one good thing is that my first go around

was the worst possible circumstance, cold spring

High rating and sick. So the next time should be cake.

You got a John mccarter 3 lol. He got a 3 that felt closer to a 3.5 on his first cert attempt. Rest up and train hard bro and when you can ccs that 157, you'll be ready for the cert. And hold on to it because I'll need to borrow it someday lol :)

Thanks bro! Yea its just part of the gripper game alot of variance. And yea its a good practice

3 for the cert, I plan to close it several times before a retry. I have also wondered if Nationals would be a good place to do it!

Tough hand dealt. But you will kill it the next time, for sure!

Thanks sir!
