Thanks Robert. I'm finally 100% healthy this year so I have no more excuses. The restrictor plate is finally off.

What I like about this thread is how since the beginning of the Certification process for the 3.5, this is the longest amount of time that has gone by between guys getting certified (2015 to 2018, no spread is that long since it began in 2008)

The last fellow was Alan Barch:

http://www.ironmind.com/news/Alan-Barch-Jr.-Certifies-on-the-Captains-of-Crush-No.-3.5-Gripper/

So we go from a 5 foot 9 inch guy with a 50 inch vertical leap (does anyone in the world have a 50 inch vertical leap, and by the way, I believe this fellow!) to a 6 foot 10 inch fellow who was the United Kingdom's Shot Put Champion for 10 consecutive years (no one has ever done that for the UK, and maybe it's never been done in any country).

Both of these guys are pretty incredible. It makes you realize just HOW HARD getting Certified on the 3.5 is. Both Barch and Myerscough are genetic freaks. AND, both Barch and Myerscough trained VERY HARD to get this Certification. I say this not to discourage people, but to emphasize what a real accomplishment it is, and if you get it, you REALLY SHOULD BE PROUD. Sometimes we throw out goals like they are much easier than they are. A 3.5 Cert is big, big, big.

Go for it Chez!

Wow. Thank you so much for the encouragement. So many good people in the grip community. It’s a tough cert and it’s been a long road for me battling through injuries but you have my word that I won’t quit until my name is on that list.

This is good news. He’s actively gunning for the 4.

I do not underestimate how hard and long a road it will be to get to the No. 4 but I plan to whole heartedly plow ahead with achieving it.

I mean, @riccardomagni or @ClayEdgin  did he talk about where he is at with the 4?  Based on how that 3.5 cert went, I’d be surprised if he were far off.

If he really dedicates himself to it, a man of his size and strength can get it done. Would be awesome to see it go down.

Weird I've never heard of this guy, has he never done any grip contests? He should do the European championships.
