Thanks Geralt. Haha. I literally just had to explain the reason for a set to a friend I showed grippers.

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

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

Put dat camera on a tripod. 

I can't with Max closes. When I go all out I throw my body into the set and my hand goes all over the place for the close. My sister was my camera person for my previous MM certs and she was great at staying with my hand. My fiancee filmed this. She just needs some practice.

thanks bud. I'm going to be hitting some big grippers with you and the NYC crew this Saturday. Looks like perfect weather. I'll bring the #4 along. Thinking I'm going to try my 194 super elite for a triple though instead. I don't want to peak too early with Nationals in a month.

So....you're basically saying the weather is also a factor in closing big grippers...hmmm no wonder I suck with the climate over here.

haha. The NYC crew trains outside (an alley behind Anton's store. We are like a gang :))so weather is very important. I took a couple months off from going to the training sessions because of how cold it got during winter. My hands get dry and crack more in winter which isn't a good combination when doing heavy grippers closes.

Strong close!  Maybe a faster camera would clear up some of the shaking?

Thanks Chris. Ya, I filmed it with my phone which wasn’t the best idea.  I’m going to bring my camcorder to the training session tomorrow. With these tough grippers I have to move fast

I understand why you shake - that's a lot of force!

If you can bring your 141 number 3, I could see if I can double or triple that (my best single is 149).  I will also have my 150 for Anton and me to try; maybe the weather and the company will be the charm for that.  And the IPA.

I got my 140 back so I'll bring that one for you. Every pound counts.

Thanks buddy. I closed two different 4s back in 2014 but then life got crazy and I got injured in 2015 and lost all my strength. I had to fight my way back and now my crush is stronger than ever
