I did it!

Recommended Posts

I finally closed the #2 today!  I closed it once with my right hand- not yet with my left though.  Wierd because I'm a southpaw and am stronger at every other grip exercise I do with my left hand, except the COCs.  I guess the spring angle really does make a difference.  My hands are shaking badly right now after my session so be glad that I'm proof-reading this before I post it :)

Grip on!!!

Congats to you!  Just to close the CoC #2 is a feat in itself, so consider it a VERY major accomplishment!  Do you realize how many people have tried to close the CoC #2 and couldn't do it?

What are your future grip goals.... to try and close the CoC #3?  Keep us posted on your development, o.k.?

(p.s. -  get the BB Master if you can.  It's one step up from the #2, and will help ya get to that elusive #3!)

Thanks all.  I must say that I do feel a bit of pride now.

Sybersnott-  I do plan on training to close the #3 under certified conditions.  I'm not sure about time frame- maybe y'all could help me with that.  I originally made it my goal to be certified by June, 2002, but that seems rather lengthy.  Maybe by the end of this year???

Woody-  Yes- now I've got to work on the consistency.  I made three attempts today and only got the first one.  I've never repped though- just strap holds and assisted closes.

Onward and upward...

BC.

I think how long it takes to close the #3 depends on a lot of factors, including how dedicated you are, and a lack of injuries. I think you will get a better view of how long it will take you to close it, once you have tried to get it for a month or two.

Great Job!

How long did it take you to get to the #2 after closing the #1.  I got my #1,2 and 3 8 months ago and couldn't close the #1.  I just closed my #2 last week.

Get Ulitmate Grip!

Hi Russell:

Let's see...  I got my #1 and #2 around mid January this year.  I could close the #1 out of the bag, although not convincingly.  I began work on the #2 around the beginning of February.  So I guess it was about 5-6 weeks from the time I began working the #2, and a couple of months from first picking up a COC.- fairly similar to your experience with them.  I workout tonight so we'll see if I can get it again and start obtaining some consistency.  I've already bought the #3 and #4 and I'm ready to attack these mothers.

Cap-  I sure hope it doesn't take me 2-3 years.  I'll be working them in earnest.  I guess anywhere between the end of this year and June of 2002 seems reasonable to me.

BC.

bseedot-If takes longer than you planned to go from the #2 to the #3, don't get frustrated.  You have to stay determined, will probably have to experiment with different routines, and be patient.  Take it from one who knows.  Steve Weiner

Thanks Steve.  Yes, I will make sure that I have an abundance of patience on hand.  Was it you who worked somewhere around 15 months to close the #3?  How vital do you think the BB Master is in progressing to the #3?

BC-It took me 23 months to move from the #2 to the#3, and I wish I knew about the BB Master sooner than I did, because I believe it would have saved me alot of time, as it provides a nice "go between" from the #2 to the #3
