377 lb is superb!!

400 will be better. Gripmas is December 8th and has axle. You just never can tell though. Everyone’s axle is at a different degree of seasoning. A brand new one is like slick oil. The one we used at the Philly expo was so slick it actually felt like there was a layer of oil on it. Haha

 Grip deload week- intensity and volume. "Highlights" few this week other than 327 lb close grip bench press below vid. Heads up- REI is having 30% off Metollius rock rings $20.89- great deal and device.

Thanks CEO I appreciate it. I eliminated all of the smallish lifts(except IM hub) and it seems to be working. My low back doesn't really like these thumbless as I have a tendency to drift forward on my DL anyway but even more so on thumbless. Have a great weekend big guy!

Thanks big guy, these are "standard" 100 lb plates - I bought these from an older gentleman(sheet probably not much older than me, LOL) last year for $100 for both! I keep one on the v-bar and the other on Griptopz load pin for ATB. I came across an old video of Kurt Weidner doing these so I figured I would give it a try this A.M. instead of rows and finger rolls

Badassery.  I couldn't figure out how to do them on the caps.  Not much of a rim!

Yes, these Standard plates are only 3/4" deep with slight taper but not a slippery eel like the Cap. The Cap 101 is a beast:)

Week of 12/9- 12/15. Was an incredible/joyous week from a parent perspective watching our sons first BB game last Tuesday- much better than any lift,crush or pull I have ever done. As far as grip related still on upward trajectory and put up PRs in several foundational lifts. However, can't always be blue skies as below picture is of me after numerous failed SB #4(216) attempts. Mucho respect for all gripsters as we mostly share same tough mentality.

Just being able to  set a 216 #4 is a feat within itself. Most will never do it

Joe, never thought of that but very good point.  I ordered 2 #4 about 3-4 months ago and they came back rated bricks 216 and 220. A 213 will be in mailbox tomorrow so hopefully get better bite.

I have failed 10x as much as I have succeeded in lifting and life.  Makes the victories that much sweeter.  If you ain't failin, you ain't tryin hard enough or reaching high enough.  Bully to you sir!
