After just about every contest, it’s a free-for-all of feats of grip strength.
Juha Harju, 1st Person to Pinch 2x25kg Plates
Lots of times, especially at Gripmas, people bring cool stuff for other people to try that others might not normally get the opportunity to get their hands on.
One such item is the 2x25kg Plate Pinch.
Up until this year, no one in the world had ever pinched 2x25kg plates.
Then, all of a sudden, Juha Harju did it (shown to the right).
Then Bob Sundin did it a short time later.
Funny how once you see something can be done, it becomes that much easier for others.
Bob was nice enough to bring his set of 25kg plates with him to Gripmas, and several of us took tries on them.
So, the list of people who have achieved the 2x25kg Plate Pinch has grown again, with Kody Burns becoming the 3rd person EVER!
And you can bet in 2016 the list will keep expanding. The only question is who will be NEXT?
