Do it simply because the incredibleness must be documented 

 

people have no clue how absolutely dominant Tanners Grip is.

Very good to see you back Adam!!!  Your overall grip strength is mind blowing.  I also like watching your videos (especially Axle) because you just chalk up, walk up, and lift.  No loud yelling or antics.  Just workman-like lifting and huge strength.

The fire rises 🔥

 

we typically meet meet at The Edge Fitness Center in Saginaw/north Fort Worth (820W/35W) or the Fort Worth Metroflex (35W/20w) on Sunday’s at 2 pm. 

Lifting / Arm wrestling / steel bending / drinking / bbq & Toxic Masculinity 

 

if you want to test your might there is a contest this year at the Dallas Europa expo hosted by Clay Edgin first weekend of June, a contest at the MF on the 23rd of June, and an Austin meet up end of August.

Bad ass! Thanks for the info and I will try to make it out the 3rd Sunday of this month. Have the Strongfirst Tactical Strength Challenge tomorrow and will be visiting my sister-in-law in Colorado the following week. I'd like to train with you guys and get some serious pointers before I dive into any comps.

Adam, since you train your grip very frequently and very aggressive, I gotta ask you, what's your recovery protocol? What methods do you use to recover from session to session? Thank you in advance!

I think quality of sleep and total quantity per week is extremely important. Learn everything you can about how you can maximize whatever time you have to sleep. 

you have to master regulating your  emotions and stress. Stress management in your life is the real master key to fitness gain. You can do everything right in the gym but if you’re always walking the line of having a heart attack from stress you’ll never realize your potential. If you have continuous anxiety it will slow you down. If you’re always angry at everyone with high blood pressure it will kill your progress. 

anxiety, fear, doubt, impatience, resentment, hate,pride,  unforgiveness- these things kill your gains more than any bad diet. 

+++ ^ note this is my method and my mindset this is not to stir up a pointless argument on my training log so save it if you don’t agree or whatever ***

my weekly nutrition is meat, veggies, (I like fruit but in practice I don’t consume much at all) and some limited breads. I do not eat dairy products. Most days I eat a small breakfast, skip lunch, have a small snack in midday and a huge dinner. 

I use weekly the hand X band, a finger massager (thanks Tanner💪) I stretch daily, work mobility drills daily, and hang in gravity boots 5-6 days a week. 

I like hot soaks with salts. I often soak my hands & feet before bed. 

How I train is a huge consideration. It doesn’t look like what most people would assume. I do lift heavy but I do so in low effort. I “don’t try” when I lift. All of you probably train much “harder” that I do. Unfortunately the results of the people I have competed against now for years leads me to believe training hard and trying hard doesn’t matter much. It is more important to work within limits and balance your tissue as you continue to gain. 

Dont try hard, do right.

Thank you for a very detailed answer Adam! I'm not under stress, so that's a good thing. And I understand you perfectly when you say that you train with low effort, I've never seen you get emotional when lifting or trying too hard, at least on youtube, everything seems pretty easy for you, you probably unleash the beast on the contests.

14/5/19

unloaded two trucks this morning. Arms sore from sacks and boxes. 

Afternoon session 

DOH Axle 

305-1, 395-1, 430-1, 440-1, 450 off the floor to knee 

2.5 Saxon 

233-1, 253-1, 263-1, 268-1, 273-1, 278-1, 283 off the floor to knee 

 

Rolling thunder competitor handle

table curl 

80-2/2, 95-1/1-3

handstands several minutes, push ups, leg raises, sissy squats 10 minutes moving around 

bicep tendons very sore this week. 

Axle & Saxon trending nicely. Almost every session I’m taking lifts at 420-430 doh and 253-273 Saxon. I fully anticipate going in to the end of 2019 to hit 300+ Saxon and 470+ axle lifts weekly. 

Can’t find my silver bullet, I’m guessing it’s in Tanners gym bag. I ordered a new one + 2.5 coc should arrive by Thursday. 

Next contests 

- Europa 9 June in Dallas, Show of Hands 23 June Fort Worth, BoneHill 16 August in Finland,  Legends in Sept Ohio. Worlds Axle & RT L.A. 2020.
