How Long Grip Training: Started on 2/14/03
Current Grip Training Program: Warmup with an easy gripper for reps, increasingly heavier singles, then 5-10 attempts at my goal gripper. Maybe some choker work, sometimes do some braced closes. Also, playing with the Inch bell on occasion.
Other Training Info: Currently training for the highland games season and working on certifying on the #4.
Acknowledgements: Thanks to my parents for making me! Thanks Matt for watching me close the gripper - funny how it takes something as world-wide as the internet to let you know that another grip freak lives just across town! All my West Coast grip buds like Dave, Mike, Austin, Dale, and everyone else. Thanks to my training partner for continuing to push me too!
