20MM BLOCK SET GRIPPERS
This is one of the events at the 2011 North American Grip Sport National Championships in Crooksville, Ohio in July. Follow this link to see the posting on the Diesel Crew website: http://www.dieselcrew.com/north-american-grip-sport-national-championship-2011
I’m not very strong on the 20mm Block Set. So it’s time to work on it before I get shamed too much at the contest – if I can work out getting to go. Hope to drive up with Josh Dale and another grip buddy or two. Have never done a real 20mm Block Set workout before where I actually focused on doing more than one or two Block Set closes in a single workout.
-146lb #3×1-both hands *Notes: Hard lefty.
-154lb #3×1-right hand *Notes: Harder than it should’ve been on an easy gripper like this.
-146lb #3-MISS-left hand
-160lb #3×1-right hand *Notes: Solid close but it is going to be my max for a while I think.
-Atomgripz Triple Band-x1-left hand *Notes: Hard close. This gripper is excellent and it binds up hard at the close.
-169lb Super Elite-MISS-right hand *Notes: By about 1/8″. That’s a mile away on this gripper. Got a lot of work to get consistent with this by July.
-146lb #3×1-left hand *Notes: Very hard.
-160lb #3×1-right hand *Notes: Another solid close.
-Atomgripz Triple Band-x1-left hand *Notes: Solid close.
-160lb #3×1-right hand *Notes: Solid close.
-Atomgripz Triple Band-x1-left hand *Notes: Solid.
-160lb #3×1-right hand *Notes: Barely got it closed.
*Overall Notes: Not a bad workout for not having access to anything but a very light coating of chalk on the handles at the beginning of the workout. I’d like to close a gripper in the mid-170s at the contest though.
