Shaw Grip Challenges

Brian Shaw has been issuing some grip challenges lately. I think it's really great that someone so high profile is giving grip strength some spotlight. I figured it would be cool to have a thread of the challenges and our submissions/responses on the Gripboard.

Here are the challenges from Brian thus far:
 

York Shallow and Wide Hub +15lbs

 

York 60lbs Roundhead Toss

 

York Milled Plate 45 pinch with each hand

I know a lot of you guys can do these things, so let's get in there and show him what we got!

I did the 45s pinch with each hand tonight, not easy, but definitely doable:

No doubt Gil will get all of these challenges, even the hub won't take him long I am sure. Beast!

Man Brian Shaw made those 45's EASY. I remember seeing only few people easily doing 2 45's like that. And well done Gil, that's awesome to do it, especially both hands.

Someone wanna get this guy a permit for those guns?

TN is an open carry state, but I dont think military grade hardware was included.

No doubts, Brian is doing great stuff to make gripsport more popular among strongmen and people who like to work out in gym. Gil, thanks for posting this info in this forum. Looking forward to makiing such kind of challenges in the future.

First one I saw was the 45s.  My submission was - sorry for the lack of "guns"

Tried the 45’s after deadlift tonight and failed miserably, couldn’t even twitch them, no chalk but I doubt that woulda made a difference. Huge respect to the guys hitting these lifts, guaranteed that there hands aren’t nearly the size of Shaw’s making these feats that much more impressive

I just saw where Mighty Mite Bob Sundin just entered - mighty hard to beat a guy nearly 60 - at 170ish pounds - lifting old style Yorks Left and right handed - RESPECT!!!

Chalk will make too much of a difference depends on your hand if it's dry, sweaty and so on. Usually it makes a big difference. Also there are plates which are too wide and sharp and doesn't stick well to each other. Use a plate which fits well in your hands with the best texture available. Mine are too smooth and wide and sharp.

Has Shaw acknowledged anyone’s videos yet? Where the hell is everyone’s steak?

He just put out another one, lift any York blob 30lb or higher. Seems like he's trying to make them more accessible for non grip enthusiasts

Agree with that about the 25-45 plate pinch, but do you know any non grip enthusiasts that have access to blobs?

By accessible I meant more people have the strength to accomplish it, not literal access to the equipment.
