I've been neglecting my grip training a little lately, I need to correct that.

need to get after that RT PR you're after too! 180 is a strong feat! I pulled 250 on the RT at the Woodall Invitational in Georgia this past summer. LOVE the RT! And with as heavy as you are..getting you a pair of them and doing chin ups with them would do your grip wonders! Favorite exercise of mine!

Impressive guys..but can you guys lift it straight out like a front DB raise?

Lifting an old York deep-dish 45-pound plate by the hub is impressive enough, but this feat is out of this world. At 69 years of age, "The Mighty Norseman" Karl Norberg not only pinched the plate, he lifted it and performed a Muscle-Out with it - a simply incredible feat of strength!

And Wicked.. you should go to the RT World championships next year... you would have gotten 2nd place with a 250 pull this year behind only Mark Felix...

I haven't tried, but the grip is the hardest part, not lifting out in front like that. I'll have to try it, maybe it's harder than I think it would be.

I'd be willing to bet I could get 200 easy now, although I haven't tried in a while, I'm sure my strongman training is helping my grip considerably.

that record wont' stand on the RT for long as far as the WR is concerned...

know a few guys pulling 275ish and just need to do it in a contest. Know another guy who's pulled 300 on the old style handle.

I'll try the front raise thing on video and see how it goes!

I'll get there, eventually, guaranteed.

That's a pretty neat grip exercise. I will give it a shot when I get home? I'm 99% sure I won't be able to pick up a 25lb plate like that :p

I do my grip training with the cut-off heads of hex dumbells, kind of like smaller blobs. one arm deadlifts are fun, pinch grips with 45lb hub and 35lb hub and dime pinch is also fun, but the rolling thunder can go to hell. that thing is a beast. I did it a couple of times one day with my brother and asked him why there were some scratches in the handle and he said it was from getting pissed and throwing it across his shop. Great job to anyone that can tolerate the RT. Congrats to you all. BTW, I couldn't do the blob, watched my brother do it, but my little baby hands couldn't get a strong enough grip. Good job BTO, keep watching your numbers go up.

I haven't worked my grip lately but I tried this tonight and I can do it, it wasn't pretty, but I did it. I didn't have the camera pointing up high enough to see the whole thing but here's the video.

HAHA you might as well put two different cameras on a short and tall tripod to get both frames of you in unison you're so tall! SICK LIFT! I'm going to try and do that myself this weekend adn see how it goes!
