Vegans gonna hate me! With evidence!

I got my number 2 coc last night and managed to close it for just a moment within 21 hours of having it! And i was driving at the time! Go me! I am trying to close it a gain but can't cos i want to get a some evidence up. Hope it wasnt a one off! I am now in the race for the number 3, bring it on

This is the 6th time i have shut it, it is not the best pic but i took it myself whilst holding the coc shut so it wasnt the most pratical thing ever

    wow! I think DMPM will hate you even more mate!

    How did that happen? Didn't you just post about the problems with closing #1?!?!?!

    Well done mate! Thats just fantastic, i'll race you to #3 Or should we first race to get the handles past parallel, lol!

    And hey, there's no such thing than one off, you either get it (or get very, very close) or don't.

    well last night straight out the pack i was at 8mm apart I had to check i had the number 2 in my hand and not the 1 lol! It took me well over a week to close the number one but now i can 5x5 it without any real probs. My grip strength is rocketing at a scary pace!I tried again to close it but its about 20mm away and my forearm feels tired so i may of burnt out for today. But what i did today before i closed it was i did 5 reps with each hand with the no1 then i tried 5 reps with the no2, i came back to the right and click! I had it, I held it then about 0.5mm apart for 10secs in amazment! All this was done whilst driving too!

    well, a sceptic would say that you got one of the easy ones - it happens and some #2's are easier than some #1's. But i'd say that your bending has probably helped you greatly and conditioned your hands well and truly.

    But still, it's insane mate!

    To make you feel even better bengdogg theres more than one person reporting on the gripboard that the COCs made this year are tougher than the ones bought from previous years. Go on the gripboard and check it out for your own eyes.

    Congradulations on the #2 close, you might be made for crushing strength.

    I didnt expect to close it so my camera wasnt handy. I will give you evidence as soon as i know im not wasting my time sat there with a camera in one hand squeezing with the other and still aobut 1" apart (like the other night after the first close) It is way harder than my no1.

    Well done mate! good pic

    Seems a whole bunch of people here have closed the coc2 at the same time. Will be interesting to see who gets the 3 first

    Personally I'm taking some time off the grippers as I'm doing my whole routine with thick bar for a while.

    good photo mate and let me repeat my congrats: ****ing wicked mate!

    Also, it looks like it is a bit off your hand, whereas i close it so that it's quite deep in my hand and my pinkie is only half on the handle. Different styles perhaps?

    If you come to the manc MT meetup i'll bring my baraban 210 along so we can both be humiliated by a gripper again, lol!

    Yeah i suppose i have quite long fingers in certain styles of holding i cant even close my no1 cos i phsichally cant get my hand to do the motion, The manc meetup is a maybe i am not commiting cos i dont know what i am up to that far ahead (not that my social lifes hectic just work schedual etc) If i do come i will go for a deadlift pr cos i am pulling150kg for 5 and 3x5ing 140kg now, at the last meet 3x5 @ 120kg woulda been hard

    true, positioning makes the difference between success and failure to me too. #1 i can now close pretty much without a set as well, but with #2 i still need to have the perfect set. If i miss it by 1 mm i get about 2-3 mm away, if i get a good one, i can shut it, in the ideal position i can rep it (not a lot though, lol!). My aim is to get so confortable with it that i can shut it without a perfect set. At the moment, it's pretty much a hit and miss if my mates want me to close it in front of them if i get it or not!

    Good progress with the DL mate! MT meetup would be a good setting for new PB's
