Josh Bigger 
The 'bastardized'HAMMER STRENGTH gripper.  Finger holds for time. This is 13 'plates'plus a sold steel exstension for a total wt. of 605lbs. A very strong 300 pounder lifts off-there is slack in that chain-the 300 pounder had 10 plates rip! through his hands like a knife threw butter. Caption and pics by Tom of Iowa2

First day of 'pinch gripping' for Josh-EVER-has not had much interest in it. This is 70lbs, total wt., with the old MILO pinch block. He feels he'll do better with a thicker block and we will be getting the MILO big block next week.

Here is a better angle of the HAMMER STRENGTH finger holds.It is more clear that he is actually supporting this weight. I believe this is 12 plate solid steel extension,580lbs.-held for over 10 seconds.

A 20lb.sledge which he slowly levered to his nose. Approx.6 lifts with right hand- only a couple with his left. Next work out will be duct taping a 2.5 lb plate to the sledge. May need some PDA fractionals after that?! He would like to someday lever back 30lbs with the long handle....
