How Long Grip Training: Started on 2/14/03
Current Grip Training Program:  After a regular lifting session Iíll sometimes do some plate pinches, grippers, levering or whatever else sounds fun. 
Other Training Info:
Currently training for strongman contests.  For a while I was doing gym lifting on Wednesday and events on Sunday, but more recently Iíve dropped most of the gm lifting and am doing a few events on Sunday, one on Tuesday, one on Wednesday, some plyometrics or something on Friday, and then start the whole mess over again.  I think this leaves me less sore throughout the week because Iím not doing all the events at once and I can hit PRís easier because Iím more rested.
Thanks to Shawn who jumped at the chance to be my witness again, despite working 12 hour days and not seeing his family a whole lot and to my wife who is understanding enough to let us throw chalk around in the garage.
