Bobby Goodfellow - Grip Feats

John Eaton met up with Bobby Goodfellow this past weekend and "Goody" dominated a handful of excellent grip feats, including a 50-lb Blob lift, and MM0 #3 close, 3-25's and a double 45 hub lift. This is a great list of feats to accomplish over several months' time, but "Goody" did it all in one session, making it even more spectacular!

Check this out:

Various Feats by Goody

Mash Monster 0 Cert Video (Parallel Set #3 Close)

Listen to the handles click on the first attempt!

Goody trained here at my house early last year and was still raw. He had no blobs, no good hubs, and no good 25-lb plates to pinch. For him to come so far after very limited specific training with the implements is outstanding.

Great work, Goody!

Check out Goody's blog, Cinder Block Hands.

A New Direction

I have decided to take my blog into a new direction.

In the past, I have used my blog to cover a variety of topics, including grip, strongman, speed bag, kettlebells, and even wrestling and music.

Now that I have started my Kettlebell Resources, Speedbag Resources, and Stone Lifting blogs, I am going to dedicate this blog to mostly grip strength topics, like grip and forearm training articles, feats of strength involving grip, current events in grip, and other impressive things taking place in the world of grip.

I am subscribed to dozens of athletes' channels on YouTube, so I will be able to get notification of many new video clips by way of that route. However, If I miss something, do not be afraid to contact me and I will put the video clip up here.

I am also looking for people who would like to contribute grip strength related articles and how-to videos to my blog. If you contribute an article, I will put up a link directing visitors to your site or blog. This could be a great way to increase traffic to your blog, and thus increasing your revenue. Please contact me if you would like to talk about sending in an article for consideration.

I feel that this streamlining of topics on this blog will be very beneficial and less confusing for the new readers coming by who have been asking what exactly my blog is about. I also think it will be beneficial for the sport of Grip strength, helping it to grow.

As always I welcome questions, and please let me know if there is anything you'd like to see presented here or on Diesel!

All the best in your training,
