How Long Grip Training: ~28 months
Current Grip Training Program:  Once every 4 days, few with trainer, then #3 x 6-10, then MM3 replica x 4-6 baby reps, then SExsingles. I start counting at the MM3 replica, try to get in 6-10 total between the two. I have been slack on levering here lately, but like to lever twice per week. Also, I am going to start trying to do some pinch once per week at least. 
Other Training Info: A couple times a week, I will do some curls with a thick dumbbell, and some tricep work. I've got a lot of strongman stuff, log, keg, rocks, tire, farmers but I don't fool with them a lot because I don't get home in time most days. I also do some long bar bending; I find this is a workout in itself.
Acknowledgements: I would just like to thank everyone on the Gripboard for the support they give. Most don't realize how much they encourage others just by posting different things on what they do, or are trying to do, or can't be done.
