My Equipment


The Natural

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

In the past I've been working out just once a week on grip, but this summer, I'm going to train more often and get really serious about the events of the Global Grip Challenge. I just made a big order from Ironmind. Combined with what I owned before, here's what I have:

#1 CoC

#2.5 CoC

Two 15" IM loading pins

IM Hub attachment

Rolling Thunder attachment

Two IM pinch blocks

Titan's Telegraph Key

Expand Your Hands bands

Two Blob50's

#6 IMTUG

Pony clamp (3201 model)

Chalk

Bending stock

Any suggestions for rounding out the basics? I really want to add a Euro pinch set-up but these are absurdly difficult to find. Just ridiculous. Also, I want to add a thick bar, #3 CoC and the Hardy Handshake.

Thanks guys,

Rex

You can make a lot of stuff yourself that is quite functional. Use some PVC for the thick bar and just use anythnig you can. Things don't have to be bought for them to work for you.

I've got more money than I do time, so buying is best for me right now. But you're right. Some really creative home-made product ideas around here.

LOL, man guys, I didn't mean to sound like Gordon Gecko from Wall Street. All I meant was that I've got a couple hundred more dollars saved up for spending on grip (or booze or plane tickets or whatever), but my work schedule is really full for the next month or so.

But yeah, good suggestions all around. The dumbbells are a really good idea as a cheaper way to train for the Inch.

from what i see you dont have much more to go lift the inch . do some thumbless lifting like dave horn and jed did and you will get it

Thanks for the encouragement, man. Did they do thumbless lifting for the same effect as "finger curls" with an Olympic sized bar?

they had a lifting session on line training for the thumbless lift im sure one of them will ring in here and tell how good it worked for them i cant remember if they both lifted the inch before thumbless training or if it was just an add on to make it easer

Natural, Have you tried the Inch yet? I don't think you'll need to train much, if at all, to DL it.

Dan, I haven't tried any thumbless RT yet, but it seems like I am getting higher pulls with the Inch when I use more wrist.

Odin, I've squeezed it and tried a few half-ass pulls, but I've never made a serious attempt because it was pre-contest (for a DL contest) and I didn't want to risk any lower back or forearm injury. When I started training grip with Aaron, I deadlifted a 145 pound dumbbell with a 2.5" handle. I could get more than that right now, for certain. Given that a plate-loaded dumbbell does not have the spin of the Inch, would you say that I'd need to deadlift about 185 on a 2.5" handle plate-loaded dumbbell before being able to do the Inch?

Thank you for your reply Natural. It also depends a lot on how slippery the handle is. I believe Mobster said 20-40 lbs. more is necessary on a 2.5" handle plate-loaded dumbbell (192-212 lbs.) I think 185 on a FBBC 2.5" DB handle may be more than enough, because they are so slippery.

Assuming Rex is talking about Aaron's Inch simulator, it's not very slick. However, it's meant to simulate the roll of the inch with a long loading area and it has a short handle like the inch. I'd say you need to pull 20-30 lbs more MAX in order to oull the inch. If you can get up 190ish I think you'd stand a good chance.
