67° F (19.4° Canadian) with 93% humidity here in beautiful Elmira, NY.  Welcome to grip in the jungle you crazy Canucks!

I learned a few things and notes on yesterday:

- Wish I knew the Canadian team was made up of extremely massive beasts before I talked so much smack. 😂 Congrats to team Canada on a well deserved win.  Great bunch of guys!

- I need to train grippers.  Skin between the handles, bad sets, poor choices on what grippers to try, and just not being very strong on them yesterday almost had me bomb out.  Ended up dropping down to 135 on my final attempt, just to make sure I would get a close and some points.  34 lbs below my best 20mm block contest close.  Oh well.  Some days you have it, some days you don't. 

- A full week of rest before a contest is way too much for me.  Going back to 3 days.

- Luke Raymond is a Beast!  Congrats on a huge win.

- Eric and Justin pushed him right to the last event.  Great job!

- Didn't get my 200lb 2HP, but I did get 194 and change on a very humid day when everyone's numbers were down.  Was very happy with that.

- That was the best run contest I've ever competed in.  Jedd did an amazing job. 2HP flew by instead of taking 3 hours.

- Thanks to all the sponsors.  Very much appreciated

- Dan Fleming is a mutant.  So strong for his size.  Was a blast to watch him compete

- Big Joe Sullivan did an awesome job.  Without a mental error on his part in the medley (and if he'd learn to set a gripper), he would have taken me in the 120kg class.  He accidentally skipped the 5 dimes pinch in the medly, but got it afterward.  Dude's a beast.  Always fun to compete with him.  Once he's done a few more of these, I think he'll be competing for the overall.

- Congrats to everyone who competed.  Meeting everyone was the highlight of the day.

- They should replace waterboarding with the wrist roller event.

- Thanks to my beautiful wife.  Without her there, I wouldn't have been able to snap back mentally from the disastrous gripper performance.

- Most fun I've had in a long time with my clothes on.

- After the medly, I got some air on the Fatman.  It will be lifted this year!

Oh Canada...

Best part was when he couldn't quite lift it.  I went over and picked it up and said, "don't worry buddy, only Thor can lift it."  Looked at me like wait a minute, is my dad Thor?  Haha

Hey there guys, sorry for the delay.  Monday's are filled with coaching client stuff and I'm working on buying a building for a gym, so today's the first day I could get to this.

Eric, thank you.

Gripboard, if you saw the live stream video, then you already know this, but I want to state it here as well.  Eric was an incredible help to me in organizing this contest.   I was able to bounce ideas off him, he gave me his own, came up with the Masters category, the Team Competition, held me to deadlines, got the awards, coordinated communications with the Canadian Gripsters, and much much more.  In short, he was awesome.  Then, on top of everything else, this week he offered to enter the data into the database for me. 

I can't say thank-you enough, my friend.  You are appreciated, @Eric Roussin!

Here's @Lucasraymond's Wrist Roller from NAGS, the only video clip I took all day.  I just couldn't work video recording into the mix, and knew that afterwards, I'd be so busy with my gym, that I wouldn't be able to edit it.  Nevertheless, here you go, watch the animal run through the Wrist Roller.

No problem, Jedd! I’m happy to have been able to help make this event the success that it was!
