No sure thing in life:) Funny thing is at the end of that workout I lifted the one easiest 50lb stub ever seen, LOL Reason why I bring that up is that is the only grip lift which today Iam not much better at. However, my "gym" lifts bench, military, biceps triceps, hip belt weaker now:( My back is stronger by a hair I guess

I was talking about this phenomenon yesterday.  Between 45 and 50 my top end grip strength ceiling seems to have only declined by about 5%, but my overall strength ceiling seems to have fallen at least 20%.  Age is the one opponent you can never completely beat.  Time is on its side.

That doesn't mean you can't be super strong at 50 plus.  But it is a lot harder and the top end potential seems to drop a bit each year.  At least for me.  I work twice as hard now for half the gains.  Just another challenge on the happy road to destiny I guess...

CEO, you put it 100% correct. 45 years -now I notice a gradual decline in weight room/garage - father time is MF undefeated!!  However, I like you and I chances if anyone wanted to dance!!!!!!!!

9/30/18 A.M. workout, Thumbless IM axle Pendlay rows SS with gripper single closes, first 5 working sets(195lb  to 265lb) closed 149 COC #3 after the Pendlay thumbless which I felt incredible about as I have not done grippers in about 2 weeks and thumbless taxes forearm massively. Sledehammer work much variety. As always extensor work as I forgot to mention that when I first started log. last set shown below

I love the creaking sound the WW makes when the hands work so hard to fight that rotation. Very satisfying. Almost as if our hands are making imprints in the device

10/8/18 late A.M. workout-  Grippers, grippers and more grippers. Started my journey to achieve a couple of reps on a very sturdy GHP 7- Great start!!  SB attempts COC 3.5 180# 7.6 seconds PR after gripper workout, then tried GHP 9 215# and almost blackout and had to drop to knee:( mad respect for big gripper guys and gals!!!!! 2HP BSS flask 5 sets with top-end 171.8 x4 PR after a gripper workout- my form still awful but trying just working on my weakness has proven beneficial. Back work approx. 20 sets of various exercises

Done that multiple times. Such a crazy feeling. Grippers really take a toll on the cns. Great training dude

Every time I try anything over 189# on SB I always think of you and several others and just shake my head in disbelief how freakin strong you guys are to actually close the handles. Yeah the near blackouts are quite fascinating for my wife and son when they watch me try for a "big" close, LOL

Joe you would love the wrist pops and obviously kick some butt on it , too!  I do thumbless with the 3" and wrapped thumb on the 2" - IMO, the wrist pops are the best use for the country crush

Yea man I don’t have a CC but the double WW has the same action. Will try it with that!!! I find that the palms facing wrist action stimulates my forearms in a way not duplicated any other way. A worked to the bone feeling! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

10/9/18 P.M. workout- I started my tricep training last night to ensure my goal of paused 315 again on my birthday in 3 months time- Usually start in Dec. but this year I have been lacking the desire and therefore been weaker than years past. Close grip 4 work sets to find out where I was at-ok and what I expected. Triceps- Pushdowns 5x 8-15, Tate press 4x15, skullcrushers 4x15-25, band underhand grip 2x many. Shoulders - old man was too tired so took my tail and ate a chefs salad instead. End of vid is effort to hub a 5lb plate, LOL crazy idea Riccardo!!
