I don't think Devon will be competing in the grip challenge, but it would be fun to see how he would do. I probably won't be competing either, as I'll be busy emceeing the event. This will be the first ever grip challenge in this area (that I know of). I expect most of the competitors will be armwrestlers who haven't really trained specifically for grip strength. I am a fan of grip strength, and I think many armwrestlers are/would be as well.

Eric-Welcome to the board! For those that dont know Eric he is a phenominal armwrestler.

Talk Devon into doing the rolling thunder lift atleast. Im guessing he would put up some monster numbers on this lift.

Thanks for the compliment Austin. The first time Devon tried Rolling Thunder he did about 215 lbs, but I'm sure he could do quite a bit more if he decided to specifically train for it.

Austin says you are an excellent athlete. Just curious, do you train Grip specifically?

The grip exercises I do are mostly ones that I feel carry over to armwrestling. My wrist strength is pretty good and I enjoy doing pinch work. I'd say my crush strength is weakest. I feel I'm pretty strong, but my grip strength pales in comparison to that of many of the members on this board.
