Going To Try Grip As Well.

Mike Betty

Recommended Posts

Could not get head into training on the heavy weights tonight so did some 2hp and v-bar.

2hp worked up to a 6kg PB on a thinner setting of 44mm i think it was 77.3/4kg i'm getting there.

V-bar worked up to 105 kg left and 115kg right total 225kg

Quite happy as a starting point have not really tried v-bar before so figners crossed should inprove fast.

Good to see you onboard the good ship 'grip'.

Well you have Nick and Steve at the gym to help you out, so I'd expect a quick increase in poundages.

Nick has all of our strongmen training grip once a week. They pick one movement out of three or so and then give it some stick. Dunkster trains it more and is working percentages. We have the gym lifts listed and no one is allowed, for example in the pinch, to be listed unless then do at least 70-kilos / 154 lbs on the Euro set.

I've said I'd like all our guys to pull at least 140-kilos on the v-bar and may make that the minimum for listing on the wall.

We weighed one of the 'new' barrels and as they all have concrete in them we think all are over 200 pounds.
