Ironmind COC's

I ordered the set, trainer to number 4.
We are having a comp in our gym, I'm hoping to at least reach number 3. I'm hoping there is something in our welsh water, as the five Hole bros a few miles away have all closed the number 3's and nathan was the second person to close number 4.

    no offense, but i think you have probably wasted your money on the #3+#4. you have a snowmans chance in hell of closing either first time round. i am still having trouble with the #2 after a month of owning it and having been iinto grip work for several months. do you plate curl??

    You might as well use the No. 4 as a door-stop, but you might close the No. 3 within the next couple of years.

    Whats your grip strength like?

    LOL...... No offence taken my friend, the #4 was just bought for a bit of fun at the gym, I train with a lot of fellas who think they have great forearm strength, it will be fun to get them to try the #4...lol...there only £10 each, expensive door stops I know!!!

    I'm a bricklayer and have always had good forearm strength, 7N concrete blocks are just thrown about on site with one hand everyday. I do hit my forearms hard in the gym, but because I use them so much everyday they seem to recover quicker. I have my sights set on the #3.

    lol... couple of years, lets hope I do it before I draw my pention. Anyone need some paper weights?....lol

    sorry not quite on the subject, but wanted to ask Mikey, hows the training with baraban grippers going?

    carn, please keep us updated on how people will do with the grippers - it would be very interesting to hear how the crushing strength varies with people. Some people can shut the #2 first time they touch it (bastards!), but sometimes even very stong people cannot shut #1...

    carn, where did you get yours mate??
    and good luck, i too have a manual job that is hard on your grip and arms in general, and although i shut the #1 straight away, and can now get 16reps out the #2 is a different kettle of fish. and the #3 is a nearly a 100ip jump again.

    Im not really training grippers at the moment. I closed the No.2 last night just to make sure I could still do it. I might take some photos of how close I can get with the No.3 and the Baraban grippers.

    I bought them from www.ironminds.com, they are actually $19.95 going by a current currency conversion worked out to be £10.84. There were a few books aswell in the order for the gym, so luckily I didn't pay the carriage.

    I might have a #4 for sale at £10 if interested...lol

    I wouldn't mind seeing the pics of you nearly closing the #3 mikey.

    start with a number 1 they are tough, you would be almost certainly wasting your time trying to get a number 3 shut. And to close a number 2 isnt an easy feat

    The fact that Ed Coan couldn't close it merely demonstrated that however strong you think you are, you need a whole different type of strength to close a CoC.

    Or that he hasn't trained for it. I suspect he'd do rather well if he put his mind to it or gave it a high value, as a mind set, compared to Squats etc.

    Thanks for the heads up, mate.

    Now I can avoid making an ass of myself about Mr Coan's gripping strength again.

    Most of the entry level proper Crushers are very tough. That's we have the worldwide exclusive on a 70IP Crusher (it also comes in a narrower grip). Should help you get started.
