Very solid workout even though the numbers look really low to those that follow my grip workouts. Remember, this is a USAWA-style workout. An 18″ bar is used. The pull is a full pull – the rotation of the plates must be stopped at the top to count. Then a judge has to give the down signal. Quite a bit harder than the standard grip contest rules.
My right hand record in the 220lb class is only 210lbs. That wasn’t really my max but it was where I happened to stop at that particular Record Day contest.
