The Road to the Record Documentary DVD

In December 2009, I set a new World Record in the Two Hands Pinch Lift with 256.04 lbs after many years of trying.
The picture above shows the record breaking lift.

This was one of the main focuses of my training for quite some time and finally breaking the record was a tremendous thrill for me.

For whatever reason, during my training for the Gripmas Carol, I felt more confident than I ever had been. My left thumb, which gave me trouble throughout much of 2009, for some reason felt better after Nationals, adding to my confidence.

One day, Smitty said to me, “Man could you imagine if you taped all of your workouts from now until December. You could have a complete documentary if you actually break the record.”


With that, I promptly looked him straight in the eye and told him, “What do you mean IF I break the record…?”

At that point in time, the plan was clear. From October until December, I video-taped during all the pinch workouts I did. Almost every single set and rep got recorded.

I felt so good about my training, I began thinking about the record even more each day. I was falling asleep at night thinking about the record, dreaming about it, and seeing visions of it as I woke up in the morning.

During that period I did stuff in my training that I never did before: used different rep schemes, used different movement patterns, and used different movement patterns.

After the contest was over, I immediately went to work editing the video. It wasn’t long before everything was put together how I wanted it, from Day One of the Documentary where I stated my plan for the next 3 months of training, to the day of the contest when I set the new mark.

The process is almost complete, and The Road to the Record is almost here.
