    Appreciate the vid, Nick. Having the gripper move in the hand is something I definitely have trouble with. Will be keen to implement your tips.

    Hey brother I will show i video of how to set the thumb and also how to close the last 3mm by using the thumb.

    You will see on youtube the guys closing big grippers have big thumb pads and strong thumbs which help with many grip type lifts.

    Damn man, your raw numbers have jumped since I was last here. What are you pulling equipped these days? How far from the 800 quest are we?

    Current RAW PRs:
    Bench: 255 (9/30/13)
    Dead: 515 (9/2/13)

    Not able to pull regually just yet, I estimate i can still pull 640-660.

    My raw PR was higher than 655 off 6" blocks, maybe 705+ but i need to check.....block pulls are easy for me with any stance compared to floor work.

    Cheers bro!!

    All the grip work, but not neglecting the deads either, good stuff!

    Got wooden blocks at my gym, 6" too. Reckon they'd shatter to kindling if you tried pulling 600+lbs off them, lol!
