COC #4 MMS Attempt (Jedd Johnson's gripper)


Recommended Posts

Jedd Johnson loaned me his #4 to attempt so I gave it a go today. It rates 199.5 lbs RGC. I was out drinking late last night so not at my best but I think I got it today. I felt the handles touch. The only problem is my girl isn't use to filming closes so I think the best stills would have came when the gripper was out of frame. I tried holding it as long as I could while the gripper came back in frame. I think I got it on my second attempt also but I felt the handles touch on the first attempt. Here is the video of that first attempt and best stills I could get of the set and close.

I'll give it a go again in two weeks to see if I can get a more convincing video.

Heck, it takes a massive amount of hand strength to just SET a #4!

Thanks. I’m feeling great. Just got a mms triple with my 194 lb rated super elite yesterday. I should be ready for the MM7 in June

My set is also my weak point. I have been working hard in the gym to bring up my whole body’s strength to set these bigger grippers. I’m at my all time highest body weight. I want to weigh even more to chase the MM7 and 8. These grippers are also super hard on the hands. I ripped open my pinky again today after 3 #4 attempts and 3 super elites. I rubbed chalk in it to finish the workout

Great attempt Chez, next time you will dominate it. GHP are great to train with becasue they have the rounded off edges, it's a bit of a shame they are not available in a wider range, like in the 190's for you.

True! Most people not so in to grip doesn't realize this. That is why you see some people look down on MMS. So good that you point it out.

Haha. I had to stop myself from making too much noise. Hate training in a public gym but I own an apartment so I have to. Can’t wait till I get a house. Then I can really give a war cry.

Thanks bud. Ya, this is older #4 and it doesn’t have a bevel. Those sharp edges really dig into the hand

Thanks man. I want the MM7 and 8 so bad. I won’t stop until they are mine. If my MMS gets that high, 3.5 cert will follow
