What equipment am I missing?

Here’s a list of everything I’ve acquired or made over the past year:

Crush:

-CoC T, 1, 2, 2.5, 3

Pinch:

-2, 2.5, and 3” pinch blocks

-AASS 2” Thumb blaster

Thick bar:

-Blue Fat gripz

-Loading pin/2” V-bar

Wrist:

-Homemade 2” PVC wrist wrench

-Sledgehammer (I think it’s an 8lb)

 

I also have 15 & 20kg bars, dumbbells, and thousands of pounds of metal and bumper plates.

 

I’m aware that one doesn’t need everything under the sun to be successful, but...

In particular, I wonder if my thick bar arsenal may be lacking? Should I consider an axle or maybe a thick loadable DB handle? I like the idea of having a steel/metal thick bar option and not being limited to rubber Fat gripz.

I guess it depends on your goals...

Are you trying to compete in overall grip then I would try to add some blobs and a rolling thunder to the collection.

If your goal was to cert on the 3 for example I would start adding some rgc rated grippers between where you are now and where you want to be.

From what you currently have I would recommend you check out threads on Adam Glass and follow him on Instagram - he would be a good source of advice and/or Jedd Johnson.

Good luck - I wish I had some metal plates now but Corona almost impossible to find :(

Maybe you could purchase a rolling handle, it has a big carryover to the open hand implements. Go for a handle that spins a lot!

Other than what you currently have would be just for fun.
