Yol Bosun - May there be a road

Recommended Posts

Yol Bosun – May there be a road - All done at 70 years of age at The Last Gripmas Carol
• 20 mm Block Gripper – 125# - 70 to 79 year old Masters Record simply because it’s the only one in class but a pretty lousy close in the scheme of things – I suck at grippers.  I did have an injury to the palm of my hand but I wouldn't have done much better without it.
• 2 Hand Euro – 217.33 official -70 to 79 year old Masters World Record – would be #47 on the open Top Fifty list and #8 in the 93 K class
• 2 Hand Euro extra attempt – 232.33 – did not count but still done – would be #22 on the open Top 50 List and #3 in the 93K class
• Axle DL – 336.54 Official - 70 to 79 year old Masters World Record – tie for #81 on the Open List and #15 in the 93K class
• 2 3/8” FBBC Axle Not on the top 50 Lists but on the FBBC lists – a three way tie for #10 on the FBBC site

Perhaps a small bit of answer to how age affects Grip Strength.  Remember every lift of mine you see anywhere was done when I was in my 60s or now 70s.

Awesome stuff, really sorry I couldn't make it. You're an inspiration to us all Chris. Really incredible numbers age aside.
