Battle of the Grip

Up coming Grip Contest in Syracuse, New York

Date: March 26th
Entry Form: Click Here
Entry Fee: $30, made out to Jedd Johnson – PO BOX 806 Wyalusing, PA 18853
Events: Blob Hold for Time | Anvil Hold for Time | Wrist Wrench Lift to Lockout (Max)
Weigh-ins: 8AM to 10AM
Warm-ups: 9AM
Rules: 9:30AM
Contest Begins: 10AM
Rules: Below

Event 1: Blob Hold for Time

The Blobs used will be half 75lb York Blobs and 25lb Power Pills. Lifter will take a Grip on the Blobs and lift to lockout and hold for as long as possible. The Blobs may not contact your legs/thighs/body. Time continues until a Blob(s) falls out of your hand, or you set one/two of them down. You must get at least 5 seconds for your time to count. If you can not get 5 seconds with the half 75’s, you may take a second attempt with the 25lb Diesel Power Pills. Any holds of at least 5 seconds with the half 75s will beat holds with the 25b Power Pills.

Event 2: Anvil Hold for Time

The Anvils used will weigh 118lbs and 55lbs. Each lifter will get 1 attempt right-handed on the big anvil and 1 attempt right-handed on the small anvil. Lifters must get at least a 5-second hold with the 118lb Anvil for their attempt to count. Time begins once the Anvil breaks off the floor and goes until the Anvil slips out of your grip or until you return it to the floor. If you do not get a 5-second hold with the big anvil, you will get a second attempt on the small anvil. Any 5-count hold or longer with the big anvil beats holds with the smaller anvil.

The same process takes place left-handed for all competitors. You will have a combined score based on your performance on each Anvil.

Event 3: Wrist Wrench for Max Weight

The Wrist Wrench will be gripped so the strap crosses on the thumb side of the implement. The lifter gets one pull per attempt, and you must lift the Wrist Wrench so that your knees, hips, and off-hand shoulder are locked out. “Good lift” will be called, at which point you must return the implement back to the ground under reasonable control. If you drop it or if it pops out of your hand, your attempt will not count. One hand (strong hand) is to be used on all 4 attempts. This is a Rising Bar event, meaning once weight is added, it won’t be taken off, so make sure that you don’t start too high. Get on the board with a good lift and then make smart jumps up in weight. Smallest increments will be 2.5lbs. If you are unfamiliar with the Wrist Wrench, it is MUCH HARDER than the IronMind Rolling Thunder. As an example, 85lbs is a very respectable lift, and 100lbs is almost unheard of.

Scoring: Strongman Scoring will be used for all 3 events. You get points based on your placing, and low points at the end wins. Example: First Place = 1 point, Second Place = 2 points, etc.

EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT PRIOR NOTIFICATION.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Tilted Kilt in Syracuse, New York.

King Kong of Grip 2015

King Kong of Grip 2015

I wasn’t planning on holding the competition here at my place, but when I heard another “nearby” promoter, Chez Riccezza, might not be able to run his leg of the multi-venue, global, mega-comp, the King Kong of Grip Challenge, I decided to get this organized in a pinch.

This was the 3rd time I’ve competed in the King Kong of Grip, and it has become a highly respected competition. The King Kong first appeared on the Grip Sport schedule in 2013, and has been in October every year.

The 2013 overall winner was Juha Harju, from Finland, and last year’s winner was Ari Siltaoja, also of Finland.

I got sick of poor finishes in the King Kong, finishing worse than Top 10 the first two years, mainly due to not focusing in and training the events the way you should, and this year I got serious.

And to my surprise, I came out on top, the first winner on the King Kong of Grip from North America.

Below are the videos, along with the worldwide standings, both in the overall, and for each event.

I want to send a get well shout-out to Chez, who hurt himself the weekend before the comp, and Jerry, who hurt himself at my comp.

I also want to send a big CONGRATS to a couple of my members at TheGripAuthority.com

First off, Darrin Shallman, who pulled a 2X Bodyweight lift of 300lbs in an extra attempt on the 2″ Vertical Bar, the first person ever to do so, and also congrats to Jake Sahlaney, whocame in 5th place out of the 73 competitors. Any time he’s competing, I know I’ve gotta keep an eye on him. We will see if and when the student overtakes the teacher!

Now, it’s time to train for the annual December contest in Crooksville, Ohio, GRIPMAS.

All the best in your training.
