Okay, picture of mine playing with editing/shadowing. And Joe’s. Looks similar, agreement?

Close enough for me to say that there is not conclusive proof to continue worrying about the hole conspiracy.  May be there.  May not.  Nobody will ever be able to say.  Especially after your very nice investigation with the 55" monitor!  Much appreciated. 

I wish he hadn't edited in all the grey scale effect.  That could be the issue for sure.

Yes, sir! Agree there isn’t really anything there to look further.

Instead of selling gripper videos, JK should have sold courses on how to learn to be proficient at language and become a tax genius in a few months between squat sessions.   He could have been a millionaire and upended our entire education system.

Definitely a missed opportunity.  

I agree

To the original topic, I think at my strongest on grippers about 9 years ago (180ish mms), I might have closed a 2.5 or a very, very easy #3 in the style Ronnie tried.  Maybe.  

I will train tonight. In few hours actually. Will try and #3 the normal way and Mr. Coleman's way. Let's see. Will video and post it.

Alawadhi - Lolz me being Joe Kinney is not far fetched, it's impossible. I've competed in two national championships, two European championships, three world championships, plus a lot of other comps, and I have put a boat load of videos on YouTube and Instagram. Call me crazy but I'm pretty sure people know what I look like, and I'm pretty sure it's not like Joe Kinney. I'd guess the person that told you that had one too many beers prior to or is a couple branches short of a tree. I'd be much more likely to be Batman.

A mask perhaps? :shifty

I know Ken is respected by many in the powerlifting community. I know he is/was an ackomplished athlete and influencer. However, I’m almost completely certain that the plates used in this video are fake. The way the whole stack of plates rotate from just him resting his hand on them toward the end of the video. Real weights just don’t move and behave like that. That’s supposedly 180 lbs on the end of that bar that is accelerated instantly from a dead stop, just by resting him resting his arm on it. I don’t buy it. 

I agree

Look at my video which I took it maybe a month or so back in China sent to my friend @Joseph Sullivan. @Hubgeezer do you believe I C&K 692 KG on an axle? Or perhaps 200LBS dumbbells clean and press in each hand?

 

On 6/27/2019 at 10:08 PM, David_wigren said:

This is how I expect 405 lbs squats to look like - Heavy, with the bar bending and with the weight clearly effecting the sway and movement of the lifters body . 

Yep

He preached negatives and beyond the range grippers. How many people on here got to where they could close a #3 using negatives and filed grippers? 

99% got injured badly by using his methods. The insane negatives will just ruin your hands. Hmmm isn't your location same as where the Woods are from or where from?

The only times a post gets a lot of comments or views on this site is when a bickering match breaks out. Post a question as a newbie and it either gets ignored or you get told to do a search through the old posts, like that wasn’t the first thing you tried to begin with. And I could search the gripboard without becoming a member. I joined so that I could ask specific questions and get straight answers from some people who know more than I do. But those people either just sit back and watch without saying anything, bicker and argue like a bunch of old women going through the change, or stop getting on here altogether because of an injury or they just got tired of the bullshit. If it keeps up like this, then this site is going to die once Wannagrip decides he doesn’t want to fool with it anymore because you guys do way more to scare people away from grip than get them more involved 

Nope this site is here for 2 decades. And those people who you assume just sit back sponsor the board, sponsor grip in general, compete, help others, produces grip materials to help others like books, e-books, and DVD's. Oh yeah pump money into the sport. What have you done which surpass it?

I did this with the no.3 just a month of playing with the Monster Gripper. I was close before that, but not near this close at all! Of course didn’t last and got tired of heavy training all the time. Probably better pacing and goal setting would have got the 3.5 to do this. Kinney doubters don’t give the Monster and Joe the credit...very powerful and fast way to do it...just need better planing than I, and most Kinney training dropouts.

2E715AAD-CC90-442E-9289-E2656AEF73E8.MOV

Good close! But that's newbie gains buddy. Careful don't end up hurting yourself assuming you follow JK real training. Yes many people who were close on the #4 got injured.

Absolutely. Far from impossible though. 

I mean, haven't you met educated people who relatively suck at what they do? Education, in my personal opinion, doesn't mean much at all and it doesn't necessarily reflect ones competence. There are much more important factors. 

Oh my God!!! So not being educated will make you sit in the White House? Or becoming your country next Minister of Finance? Perhaps a university professor at the very least? Let the like's of Harvard University shut down because education in your opinion has no much value. Oh yeah Harvard is older the United States just FYI.

What are some of your opinions on this girl?

 

My opinion is that the spotters are super happy. :turn

On 6/28/2019 at 1:53 PM, David_wigren said:

I’d say she’s pretty known for her strength. With 7.8 million followers I’d say she’s more known for her strength than all of us on the entire board combined. 

I’m not sure she has done any competitions or actually trained with anyone who could objectively verify those plates to be authentic. But that doesn’t matter. Her training partner will of course verify them as real plates. And that’s all the evidence needed, right?

This!

Your post here, in many ways, causes one to dig deeply into how we make decisions in our lives on a daily basis. When one has some degree of knowledge on a subject, and something seemingly ridiculous occurs, we immediately reject it as fake, and then move on with our lives. Or, in this case, my own reaction is to want to reach for my telephone and call my formerly Elite Powerlifter son (665 or 670 DL at 220lbs. a few years ago) to see what he knows about her - - or what “Smelly” of Bigger Stronger Faster thinks of her (my kid is one degree of separation from him). I would probably hear she was a fraud, then move on. Life is too short to spend on silly matters. We usually rely on our own expertise in how we go about our lives, and when something is beyond our own expertise, we either study it further, or seek someone who has some perceived level of expertise. But we usually value our personal time, so we don’t waste much energy on dumb things.

And, when it is not a dumb thing, and everyone moves on...

I am a good guy. Word is bond. I am strong. Look here

On 6/28/2019 at 4:43 PM, David_wigren said:

Why would you call your son? How would your son or “Smelly” know if she is a fraud or not? They don’t have any evidence of her being a fraud. Why would you choose to believe them over her and her training partners? If you want to be consistent to your own chosen logic you have to take her word and accept her lifts as true. 

What would it take for you to believe her? A few personal texts? A phone conversation where she seems nice? 

Maybe he believe's those lift I've done? But I still haven't texted anyone yet.

On 6/28/2019 at 5:31 PM, Mike Rinderle said:

Why would you believe 1 and doubt the other?  I haven't texted with her, but she seems like a very nice girl.  I understand that she is also fond of saying, "word is bond."

Word is bond!

On 6/28/2019 at 8:22 PM, David_wigren said:

Ok, so if she seems intelligent, intense, observant and pragmatic - then the weights were real? Got it.

LOL!!!

On 6/29/2019 at 12:10 AM, Mike Rinderle said:

Before everyone runs to look up the video on YouTube.  What are those holes?  Were holes in the bottom of the handles standard?  I don't know enough about grippers back then to know for sure.

 

Screenshot_20190628-155036_YouTube.jpg

Good catch. But hole or not this did NOT happen. Period. He only closed a #2 in front of someone. Couldn't even close a #3.

all I know is no one has gotten close to doing that with a #4 since and lots of guys have trained hard for it. as someone who has closed a couple 4s, I would need to see it to believe it

I would love to see someone doing that to a #3.5. No shaking. Gripper not really under the thumb. Talking casually and grinding it to dusk. A 70KG man who claimed to be the strongest athlEAT$$$ in recorded history (yes his 200KG squat alone is up there).

On 6/29/2019 at 2:14 PM, David_wigren said:

I don’t really care too much about the dot/hole. There’s no way of finding out whether it actually was a hole or not.

If I wanted to fake a gripper close, I for sure wouldn’t do it in a way that would leave any suspicious markings on the gripper.

Exactly.

The Kinney story will only make sense to you...(if you’re open to it) when you focus on the Monster Gripper. I’m here doing it and low on the handles and barely, if at all, get them to touch. I was probably around 210lbs. Here. This was also around the time of my easy no.3 close. And getting the 3.5 down very close. I only did negatives - with closes as warmups and to test my progress.

Joe told me I was a bit too far down the handles- and to stay away from the sharp end. Now, going up an inch or two made it impossible to touch the handles. 

Now, Joe got to where he could force it shut and pull it out of the wall and confirm it being shut. If/ or when he got to that point, the no.4 close you see on the video would have happened exactly that way. He would have melted it...as you recall- he did. 

So don’t focus on the no.4 close, try and figure out if he did the shut and hold of the Monster. Then it would all make sense to you....or some of you.

Hm, I thought my point was quite clear given the context. Perhaps I was mistaken.

Although a proper education is necessary for the most part if you want to have a good career, seeing as that is the norm (and of course, an effective way to learn) having one doesn't automatically mean that you are good at what you do. You can be a lousy psychiatrist for example, even though you have spent a decade in school. Or a bad carpenter compared to a hobbyist, even though you are 'educated'.

Granted, graduating from Harward most likely mean that you have half a brain, but it still doesn't automatically mean that you are competent. That would be quite naive imo. 

If I were to hire someone I would look for the most competent applicant, not the one with the most prestigious education. They don't, necessarily, go hand in hand. I realize this perhaps isn't the norm in the states for example where what school you went to seem to be a very important variable. 

So if I were to rephrase (as I should after re-reading what I wrote) I would say that education, by itself, doesn't mean much.

Do you know what's funny? In the recent video on my CoC #3 you can see both behind me. Yeah maybe you didn't know this about me, but you will find most grip thing around the world is with me here in Dubai 😎 I am a collector too. Yep even bought both if Joe Kinney monster and little minster gripper. There is almost no grip implement not within my reach. And if I don't have it, yet I want it, I wish and it comes 😎

Doesn't mean much? Wow. Which company are you leading now? Apple Inc? A hobbyist carpenter is better than a professional one? Boy stay on Kinney's subject. Don't beat around the bush. Show us your Coleman style close on a #3 after doing a MMS. That's within this subject.

Steve Jobs dropped out of college, so did Bill Gates. Successful managers and company CEOs are born, education is just an icing of the cake, if even needed. And I'm saying that as someone who's completed college with 4.0 GPA and I'm not able to make a living out of my profession, which I'm an expert at, because I'm not good at marketing and don't have a business personality. My brother-in-law owns multiple companies, and he's living in Dubai, he started his 1st business when he was 14, it was unstoppable. I know people who have completed the same college as I did, and know very little, they learned enough to pass the exams and are very successful financially, and most people would say they are good coaches, while they are straight up garbage. They are just really good at making what they do seem good, and making clueless people believe it.

Sorry for the off topic. 

I didn't read trough the whole tread, but I've read trough some stuff written here. When a man has a single suspicious feat or claim, that's alright. But when everything that someone claimed borders lunacy - that's a problem, and that man's probably a fraud.

About the Brazilian chick Gracyanne Barbosa, why even talk about the weights, her entire body is fake - lips, buttocks, breasts, face... I don't even believe that she was brought up.

This.

When everything a man claims to do, in multiple disciplines, is way way above what any other human can do, then you have to start doubting them at some point unless they have convincing proof.

Joe would have gotten away without any doubters if he would have just posted up a video of a normal close.  He instead it's an edited video of him toying with it like it's a trainer.  Then claims he did 440 x 60 Hatfield squats every day before breakfast, which would make him stronger than any squatter in the world.  Finally, he claims to two different Captains of Crush that he can toss an Inch dumbbell back and forth, which would make him the greatest thick handled dumbell guy of all time.

I know he later qualified how the squats were done (still would have killed a normal human) and also said he never did the Inches and didn't claim to.  Almost like someone told him that he was getting a little out of control with the claims and pushing credibility.  Of course he's calling Heath and the other gentleman liars.  I choose to believe Heath.

At some point, you just have to call Shenanigans and say, "prove it."  Something he was never willing to do even though he was given many chances at the time.

In my opinion, you really have to suspend all reason to believe that #4 close was real at this point. 

P.S. did anyone ever see him close the dumpster spring in person?  Or is his strongest close in front of someone still just a #2?

Yes drop out of good universities because their business were already good. You are talking about the likes of Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg, et cetera and forgetting the millions homeless with no jobs because lack of education. It is really frightening there are guys out there pushing for no education. Yeah you told me that on Instagram your in law lives here in Dubai (was it you?). But then again education is the key for the general. Some seem they won't regret not going to university. But hey that's fine. Regretting needs age and wisdom which is clearly lacking here to the some.

As for you, where do you live? You can have 4.0 GPA but with no job in lets say Niger or Somalia. Education, true education will not send you to those countries, but you should go to a country who respects your education. Give a 2 year old gold and he won't be entertained. But give him a sweet and he will be super happy. Why you don't work with your brother in law here in Dubai? Dubai is good (except for its summer), we can train together, and enjoy the food here 😉

Finally, you said it. If someone claiming he is the strongest person in recorded history then hmmmm

I showed to both Juha and Jedd. But the car one was Juha. Yeah Joe came later but I remember somewhere reading he closed the steel one first.

I don't think any thoughts of any other gripper are really needed here, just a touch of common sense is all it takes. He's essentially claimed he could certify a coc #5 under the rules, using awful technique. That would mean he could probably no set #4 for 15-20 reps.

Any gripper you can do an 8 second hold with ease, while grinding the handles; you can do multiple reps on.  Maybe not 15-20, but certainly at least 5.  Easy.

Of course, that means you would have to show the gripper actually open back up after a close.

Any gripper you can do an 8 second hold with ease, while grinding the handles; you can do multiple reps on.  Maybe not 15-20, but certainly at least 5.  Easy.

Of course, that means you would have to show the gripper actually open back up after a close.

Totally agree and am proof of this statement.

Curious. Who said Joe Kinney could “toss” an Inch Dumbbell?

Where did the word pop up? 

Video somewhere? Did Heath say he could “toss” the Inch? Did Joe tell him that?

Phone call to someone? Text? Randy Strossen? Timmy? Joe Roark?

I have been wrong before on this thread. I’d like to see where it first appeared.

For the record, i once hurled the Inch, i mean, hurled on the Inch.

Jedd,

Joe told me on more than one occasion he could pass the Inch from hand to hand.  The day we met I bought an Inch DB from him.   He talked about it some and said he used to be able to pass it hand to hand.  Having fooled with an Inch some the idea of hand to hand back and forth would require excellent strength.  

 

 

I messed with it some and eventually sold it to Sean Dockery when he passed through one summer.  I showed him what I payed for it and if Doc was interested he could have it for the same price.  I think it was $250, but it has been a long time.  

@Hubgeezer, Heath said it in this thread.  See above. 

There is also another post in this thread of him making the same claim to another certified COC named Strativarius.  I will go back and find it.  He made the claims... unless, of course you think Heath is a liar.

Alawadhi,

Joe Kinney told me quite some time ago that he could pass the Inch from hand to hand. I didn't see him do it personally, therefore I'll let you decide as to whether or not he did do it.

@Hubgeezer, here ya go Mike.  That's two certified CoCs saying that Joe told him he could do this.  Heath said Joe told him this on multiple occasions.  Either Joe lied or they did.  My money would be on Grey Scale Joe as being the fibber, but what do i know???
