My grip adventure

Recommended Posts

200 kg axle DOH is definitely elite in my opinion. However, it should be done with tightly locked collars, so that the axle is like one solid unit. Most people don't do that though and everyone who doesn't don't think it matters.

Also, it's erroneus to base elite level from WR lifts, in my opinion. It should be based on what people are doing in competitions in general.

If you go by WR, there's plenty of sports where they are only one or two men who are "elite" with that type of standard.

As he answered he was referring to my 200 axle, which would be around 87% of WR. Not sure if I would call it elite now when you pointed it out. If you compare to strongman it would equal 198kg logpress and 435kg strongman deadlift. Wr in powerlifting in -120kg is a total of 907kg with your reasoning 789kg total wouldn't be elite. Is 100kg Rolling thunder elite? 

I find it interesting! Would be interesting where the community draw the line :)

 

Thom I think you are a very strong lifter 💪💪

 

on your 200 video - is that an Ironmind apollon Axle? 

One observation i have on axle is the im bar often is much harder than typical strongman bars. Especially when it’s tightly secured with spin lock collars. Very common to hear someone who has lifted 205-210 kg on their local strongman axle to struggle with 185-190 on the im bar. 

I very much believe you will climb up the ladder if you persist. Aim for the big lifts it will compliment your pl & sm game. 

Edit - I missed response to rt question — imo no 100 kg not elite. It’s good. I realize most of the people who read this will say otherwise. I think 113 kg / 250 is the entry point to the truly top rt levels.

That’s what elite is - a small number.

Not that small...

Makes no sense to base elite level after a WR. Since a WR can be set at any time in history. Doesn't mean you can't be elite later. Not many people in the elite high jump is jumping anywhere near the WR either. That's the case in many sports.

 

And regarding rolling thunder I don't think it's good to even look at numbers at all since those handles vary so much. Better to look for other handles that are consistent in that case. Like the crusher, trilobite, LGC handle etc.

Thanks! 

Its random strongman bar and I'm positive it's mich easier then IM bar guessing I would be around 180 with IM bar. I'm not talking that much about my lift rather it's interesting where line for elite is drawn. If we play with the thought that it would be a 200kg IM bar lift, how many people are able to pull that kind of weights today? 50-100? 200-500? 500-1000? Would 1000 guys be elite? 50? 10? Thats what I find interesting. 

How many %es of active users are elite? 1-5% of community?

Feeling the beginning of a cold coming so I had to skip gym today, my 3yo was sick the last 2 days so I probably caught something aswell. But! I got inspired by @Hopefullys recent progress so wanted to see where I'm at with grippers. Without cns being active/hype. 

All CCS 

Right hand:

#1.5 5 

#2 3

#3 1 0(4mm) 

#3 3 minireps 

Left: 

2-3mm left on #3 twice. 

 

Got really surprised that it felt so easy!

May I ask what sort of lift is that "80 mm pinch?" Is this width of a bar or?

Hello! This is a blocklift and 80mm is the width of the block :) (Google iron mind block buster) but this is homemade.

So i loaded the Axle with 180kg but uneven... 20x3 + 10 + 5 on one side and didnt have a 5 on the other side. Got it up to my knees and heard a loud pop on my pinkyfinger on the side that was missing a plate.. so called it quits. I dont think it's so bad hopefully just a straining.

So what's the plan for the next few training sessions Thom?

Even a loud pop can sometimes be very minor but a few lighter sessions on the lift where it happened after something like that can be a good way to asses if it's going to be a problem or not. Calling it quits after you heard the pop was a wise mise move, if I had a dollar for every time I've seen someone hurt themselves in the weight room and finish their set or even the full session and turn something trivial into a serious problem I'd be a rich man.

I can move my finger without to much problems or pain but I cant squeeze things like cans or balls etc. Next session is squat/bench bench could be an issue but most likely not. If it is I'll tape the finger to my ring finger. I'll try some light axle in about a week from now to see if it's okay. 

Yea I've done that to many times aswell. I cant risk anything since competition is in 4 weeks. It's good that it's on my left so it's only affecting my axle if it's not healed. Perhaps I can pull axle with the pinky taped to my ring finger aswell, don't know if its allowed. Feels wierd to fk my pinky finger up on overhand axle tbh..

#1.5 10 klickreps 

#2 3 mms 

#3 1 1 0 CCS 

Tried 2 reps the first and last close, 5mm left on first attempt and same on last. Notice on video that i didnt close the handles on the last attempt so no-rep. Even if I miss the setting slightly I still get it closed which feels great.

Oh dear how we all struggle because of that stupid CCS system! Why not make Coc No. 5 and more for god's sake and change the rules back to parallel??? If too much men will close no. 4 then not so many will close 5 or even 6 yes?
It is so stupid really. Some men want things to be like that. Those tennis racket hands mother(bad word filter)ers!
