Totally cool with that. I am not a morning person and every second of sleep is precious

I'll be documenting modifications to the medley here:

Inch Pinch - the implement will be in an S hook.  The pin will start with 50# loaded.  If you'd like to lower the weight, pull the I.P. and S hook off and remove the weight you want.  Add/remove plates prior to your turn as needed during your prep time or during your trial.  50 = 5, 40=4, etc.

Rolling Handles - There will be one loading pin starting with a 2.5" Crusher, starting with 185.  Add/remove plates before your turn as youAdd/remove plates prior to your turn as needed during your prep time or during your trial.  185 = 5, 160= 4, 135 = 3, 90 = 2

We tested out the Wrist Roller Rig today, and I'll have videos to post later on.

The sled weighs roughly 20lbs and is loaded with 115.  The pull distance is 34 feet.

How much does it cost for spectators? Is the gym open to the public during the event?

Tomorrow, Eric Roussin and I will be doing a special episode of This Week in Grip, where we will be discussing what's to come at the NAGS Championship.

What predictions do you have regarding the contest?

Who do you think will win the Team Title?

Post here and we will discuss your thoughts!

@Anyonecanhappen - $5 for spectators, unless you volunteer to assist with the comp, by helping load and change weights, score, etc.

I predict that Chezz smashes a really big gripper. It is written!
