The last month has seen some astounding lifting accomplishments. Quite notably, the swath of record destruction left by newcomer Mervi Pekki. She has managed to seize the records for the 1 & 2-hand Flask pinch, the 1 & 2-hand Tips Tester lift, AND the Shallow and Deep DubHub lift. This is the definition of raising the bar. Ladies, the gauntlet has been thrown. Tanner Merkle is also pushing to the top with his 370.7lb 2-hand Tips Tester lift which puts him in the #2 spot. Arto Joronen crept closer to reclaiming the 2-hand Flask pinch record with a 250.3lb lift which he made look easy. Riccardo Magni pushed his record on the DubHub (shallow) up a couple more pounds and Pat Burke stepped his numbers up by 10lbs landing an incredible 79.0lbs lift on the DubHub (deep). Be sure to check out all of the incredible lifts from this months leaderboards lifters. Congratulations, y'all.

It's been a minute since an update, but it seems the Leaderboards are getting pretty stout. Looks like the point of entry for the Men's 1-Hand Flask is now about 100lbs. I barely eeked onto it, but Harri Tolonen is out for blood and hot on the heels of 3 of the best pinchers in the world. Riccardo Magni introduced the Tips Tester to some folks in Odd Haugen's Training Hall and Mike Gillert came out of the woodwork and killed an easy 174.9lb lift on it 1-Handed on his first try. Riccardo wouldn't let the new guy have the last laugh, though, and lifted a beastly 179.6lbs afterward. Rob Thacker also made a jump up on the DubHub (Deep) list after a long deload from grip work. Sometimes you just need to rest those eagle talons for a bit. 

Congratulations to all of these lifters. Be sure to check out all of the incredible lift videos!

Wow, I am absolutely floored by the number of world records that were smashed in the last month! This Leaderboard update brings us a new record on the 1-hand Flask by Harri Tolonen, a new record from current 2-hand Flask record holder Mervi Pekki, a new Junior's record on the 2-hand Flask by Rilla Vattukumpu, new records on the 1 & 2-hand Tips Tester from newcomer strongmen Martins Licis and Clay Edgin, respectively, as well as many other incredible lifts taking high positions on the leaderboards for almost all lifts. If these lifts weren't coming from ALL OVER THE WORLD, I would say there's something in the water! Check out all the amazing lifts and see how high the level of competition has become. Congratulations to all!

This month's update brings you many high performance lifts from all over the world. It is an honor to see so many strong lifters all over the globe lifting on equipment coming out of my little shop in Tennessee. Two world records were ANNIHILATED, one by Mervi Pekki of Finland on the 1-hand Flask and the other by Carl-August Mertz of Germany on the Stirrup. Check those unbelievable lifts out as well as the others below. Congratulations to all these top notch gripsters!

Gil, any thought of doing a leaderboard with 2hands shallow dub key pinch? LOL   It would be nice to sit atop a BSS leaderboard Ha Ha. Great lifts by everyone- Riccardo nice pull!! And to the lady who did the very easy 1 hand 65lb Flask, well-done!!

That is something I have definitely considered. I am planning to overhaul the Leaderboards with weight classes and a master's class as well as adding some additional events/challenges.

Wow, sounds exciting with all the changes you have in mind!! Many gripsters(myself included) will be looking forward to the  new BSS events/challenges and changes to the leaderboards!
