Since I would love to see everyone operating at peak efficiency, I think this is a good idea for those who use this type of warmup.

 

We'll have plenty of weight in the warm up areas, so as long as we arrange the mats for "just in case", we should be good to go.

As the person responsible for the meeting room, I'd really appreciate if people spot so there are no drops.

lol. The squat stands shouldn't be a problem, but I don't own an Olympic bar. Maybe someone else can bring one along?

I sold mine but I still have my ironmind axle and I could always bring if we had no other alternative.

Yes...but this is too easy and makes too much sense.

Besides...I don't want Chez whining when you take him down in Grippers. ;) :laugh

That should work. Moderate reps are best for waking up the CNS. Singles don't work well. I don't think anyone will be using crazy weight just to wake up for the comp.

Haven't squatted with grippers since October.  Grippers are doing fine.

Updates...

When I heard that @Squeezus was going after the FBBC 2.5" Crusher Record (currently 224.43lbs) at SJ4...this needed to happen...

20170221_122349.jpg

and... @Jared Goguen's  "Mammoth Grip Tools" Trilobite 3" Rolling Handle will now be part of the SJ4 medley...and available for testing and pulls

 after the contest.

20170221_122827.jpg

...and the Blobfather will be available for those rare few who think the Blobzilla just isn't enough of a feat.

That's all folks. ;)

I've decided I will only update attendance on Friday. Out of curiosity, I've broken the numbers into states.

 

For fun...any State that has a women competing will have their top 4 competitors (1 woman, 3 men) aggregate overall placings match up with the other States.

All of the competitors (even those not totaled in State contest) from the State with the lowest total will each receive a small (but cool) prize.

The moral?  Ladies are awesome competitors...let's encourage their participation in Gripsport. :) 

 

The "Pick Up Artists" from NC are sending another competitor to SJ4.

Jason Otto is now officially "Attending."

This brings the current hard attendance to 34.

NY = 6

CT = 4

NJ = 4

MD = 4

NC = 3

TN = 3

PA = 3

MA, OR, WV, MO, OH = 1

Canada = 1

The Netherlands = 1

We could always distract Anthony and he could strategically, er, "accidentally" forget the squat stands...

@Anthony C. Do you find money distracting?

Update...#721.

SJ4 now has it's 2nd official Sponsor.  @Jedd Johnson / Diesel Crew has sent a prize package.

I had made a recent DC order and upon opening the package, found a TON of DC goodies thrown in for SJ4 prizes.

Holy heck...what a surprise man.  Huge thanks!  This is going to make a special event even more badass.
