David Shamey, the 115th man (Right) and 12th (Left) in the world to close the Mash Monster Gripper - Level 1

 

Could you tell us a little about your background in lifting?
I've been training with iron for about 9 years. Of these, 2 years of calisthenics, a year of powerlifting, 6 years of armwrestling, the last year and a half together with strongman.
 
How did you get into grip training?
I started doing grip for armwrestling, but then it became a separate hobby for me.
 
You are now a GripBoard Mash Monster, what would you recommend to those aspiring to close this gripper?
The most important thing you have to hold on to for a result is regularity.
 
What does your current grip routine look like?
I just do some amount of work while I'm interested, 2-3 times a week.

How has your grip routine changed since you first started training your grip?
Now I have 10 times more grippers :D Seriously, the first few years I only had Coc 1 and Coc 3
 
There seems to be a significant variation in the frequency of grip workouts among trainees. Have you experimented with workout frequency and its effect on your training?
I trained both 1 time in 2 weeks and 5 times a week. My opinion is that more often is always better, but you need to properly distribute the load. You can't just take your workout that you do once a week and do it three times))

What are your favorite grip exercises?

I only do classic closures with different widths and axle deadlifts.

What kind of starting routine would you recommend for a trainee new to grip training?
Work out in the gym, it will give a good increase in grip strength.
 
Who do you most admire in gripdom?

I'm very hard to impress. I think Nathan Holle showed the most interesting results for me
 
If you were to start over again with your grip training, what would you do differently?

I would start to train the grip more versatile, at the moment I significantly lack the strength of the extensors and pinch
 
What do you believe is the most difficult grip exercise?

Among the doable and interesting to me is clean Inch dumbbell and closing GHP 10

What are some of your personal bests in grip exercises?

The best I would call 88kg Coc 4 CCS, 94kg GHP 9 2 reps with 20mm block, 95.5kg BB GE MMS. Deadlift 210kg axle 

What do you believe is the most common mistake made by new grip trainees?

Rare, but very heavy training.
 
What do you consider to be the greatest grip feats of all time?

Honestly, I don't know.
 
Do you have any parting advice for readers?  

The regularity and moderate the diversity - the way to success
