If we do that, then what John Stepien  said about grip will become TRUTH.... that grip is the “dungeons and dragons of strength sports”. Let’s not make it that true now .... pleeeaaassse! Hahaha @JStepien

OK I actually did laugh out loud there.  I have only been in grip for a year or so, but I have thought from the beginning that it is the PERFECT blend of macho and geek for me, as I feel some connection to both of those stereotypes.

Love dungeons and dragons. Love table top rpgs, puzzles and grip. Combining the two would be epic.

Only reason I know is because I have to know. 10 years ago I didnt of know about these puzzles. Only thing I knew then was rubiks cubes and I cant solve the easiest 2x2 rubiks. Im simply being honest is all. 

 

Edit: Disentanglment not entanglement  is what I meant. 

Rubik's cube is not hard at all, actually.  I have solved all kinds of variations, 3X3, 4X4, 5X5, shape modifications, obfuscations, and a 3X3 ghost cube that took over a month.  A few years ago I decided I wanted to learn and it is not as complicated as it sounds.  I found it really helps with anxiety and stress.  And I know I got some funny looks at Nate's comp in February when I busted out my 3X3 speed cube between lifts. 

I recommend using a beginners tutorial and then learning CFOP once you understand the mechanics of the cubes.

Aww I wish I knew this before gripmas, I have a decent collection of some unique twisty puzzles. Next time for sure.

The problem is more memorizing the algorithm to solve it. My 2x2 is 3 sides solved, my XXL is two sides solved. Its gonna take a LONG time. But Im sure Ill get it. The disentanglements, burrs, boxes, dexterity etc aren't as hard on the memory oddly enough. Some Ive put colored tape on the moves as I went. Nice to see another puzzler 👋🏻

I think there are some rogue cubers out there in the shadows of the grip world.... reaping the benefits of the super-light weight radial and ulnar deviation.

I solve the first 2 layers intuitively and then use a modified 2-look orientation of the last layer.  It cuts down on algorithms immensely.

I set out to learn the 3x3 last fall and did. I can solve it every time in about 1:30. I’m really struggling to get any quicker. This is on just straight memorization of about 5 steps.

Can I say my kids? 🤔😎

Other than that. Before I ever got into grip I was making very detailed big pencil drawings of... hands. This one is about 100cm tall.1612491241_Hand04.thumb.JPG.48047a5b5549bfe8f6cbc9c3895ee9e0.JPG
