A fun competition, with a great group of guys, my personal highlight was setting a World Record in the #4 Silver Bullet Hold.

During and after the competition, several awesome feats went down, especially ones set by the Big Man from Norway, Eirik Bruun Ingebretsen.

Time Butler also brought up a couple of cool grip challenge items to try.

Here’s Tim’s half 70lb Globe dumbbell head, called a Glob.

Here’s Tim’s Half 120lb Hex with the handle still attached. When lifting a block weight with the handle still on (especially on the thumb side) it makes it quite a bit more difficult.

Thanks for bringing those up brother!

I’m pumped everyone was able to make it for this small, yet very fun competition.

All the best in your training.
