09-Feb-07: TPS Grip Assault 2007

If you are thinking about doing a Grip contest this year, you might want to sign up for this one, hosted by Total Performance Sports in Everett, Massachusetts. I sent in my application this week. As far as I know, there are no other entries. Hopefully some more people will decide to sign up.

To print out your application, click on the image above, and go down the page until you find the same image. You can't miss it.

Here are the events and rules. Dave Memont's contests are always a bit different than other grip contests.

    1st. Double rolling thunder hold. Done on a twin stack pull down machine, equal weight in each hand. Take grip of the handles and drop to your knees. Weight must be held for a total of 3 seconds. 3 attempts to get the heaviest weight. Rising bar event.
    2nd. Grippers. Standard set to parallel and crush.
    3rd. 3 inch bar one handed deadlift. Lift to be done to complete lockout to count. 3 attempts for heaviest weight. Rising bar event.
    4th. Hub lift. Using all iron mind equipment. Rising bar event, with 3 attempts
    5th. Thick v-bar. this is the first ever tried in grip contest and the first one ever made. Same rules as a regular v-bar apply.

My last trip up to TPS for a grip contest was in 2005 - here is a highlight video featuring some of the feats that happened after the contest.
