24-Mar-07: How NOT to Train Your Grip

Exhibit A: A sports strength coach claiming he knows how baseball players should train their grip for improved strength, and then shows a few of the absolute worst exercises out there, ones most often used by the run-of-the-mill bodybuilder.

Wrist curls and extensions are bad enough, but when I saw that kid crumpling up that newspaper...that took the cake.

I invite you to come and visit and see how athletes should train for real grip strength that is going to have them prepared for victory. I think you will be happy you dropped by.

18-Mar-07: Program Design by The Rock

This is a clip from a few years ago - circa 2002 or 2003, I'd say, when the Rock was going up against Brock Lesnar. It's hard to confirm that he actually trained this way for his matches, but the movement choices showed in this clip trained the functional movement pattern well. I'd like to know what his clean and jerk PB is...

Even worked some Grip strength in there. Wonder if Dwayne's got a set of IronMind grippers?

18-Mar-07: Wild Samoans

I fought the urge to go out and get wasted and intoxicate my sinuses and throat with mobile nicotine on St. Patrick's day, as much as I wanted to have a few green beers. I got a great gripper workout in, and fried my thumbs with high reps on the Titan Telegraph Key. What did you do last night? Did you get one step closer to your goals?

Smitty found this ad on youtube for the Wild Samoans Training Camp in Allentown PA. I know some of you reading this want to get your foot in the door of professional wrestling, judging by the emails I get from those who read this blog, so if you are in the area, I urge you to give them a call and sign up. Hey, even Iron Sheik is backing them. If they've got HIS support, then they must be good because that guy is one bitter son of a gun.

Go for it!
