First Time Ever: Double Old School York 45 Plate Pinch

Recommended Posts

Jedd Johnson

In October of 2016, I experienced the worst back injury of my life.  It was then that I decided that as soon as my back was ready again, I would make this feat my primary focus, and possibly become the first person to do it. 

I first pinched one pair of Old School York Deep Dish Plates in 2013, and since then I trained it sporadically, mainly during periods when I wasn't training for contests and certifications.

Last week, on Tuesday, I was sure I was going to pull this feat off.  So much so, I actually wrote down on a piece of paper that I would do it on that night.  It ended up being the first time I ever broke both sets off the floor, which gave me some great mental momentum.  On my 5th or 6th attempt, I nearly got them to lockout.  Unfortunately, I couldn't quite pull them all the way, as the set in my left hand slipped out about 6 inches before Lockout.

Finally, this past Tuesday, on 3/29/17, I focused in hard, took my time warming up and getting everything right, and was successful on my 2nd or 3rd attempt.

I waited to hear confirmation from Richard Sorin that he hadn't heard of anyone else doing it yet, especially Chad Woodall, who I know was extremely close in 2011 at Summer Strong, and who has made other trips in recent years.  Once Richard confirmed, I went ahead and uploaded the video.

After years of trying, and failing literally hundreds of times, this feat is in the books.

Thanks and all the best in your training.

Thank you, for the kind words.  Keep pumping out your vids, too, no matter what equipment they are, tough guy.
