I am currently sorting the details for an international contest for next month, this is the plan.
A 2 event contest, testing two of the most popular grip strength events.
Two hand pinch lift on the adjustable European apparatus and overhand axle deadlift with the Ironmind Apollons Axle.
Format will be very smooth. Two hand pinch, flip for width high to low or low to high. 4 attempts per competitor
From there it will be overhand axle deadlift, opening weight 220 lbs and from there 10 lbs jumps in a last man standing format.
Adam Glass, Minneapolis
Juha Harju, Kirkkonummi, Finland
Andrew Durniat, Wooster
Dan Reinard, Bay Area
Mark Dy, UK (details pending)
Mike Sheehan, Bosten
Jarrod Riordan, Victoria, Australia
If you would like to join in, here is what you need to have for a site
- A standard European Two Hand Pinch Apparatus
- An Ironmind Apollons Axle
- All plates measured on a certified scale
- A point calibrated scale for competitors
Scoring will be according to the NAGSA system, there will be two lists. List 1 is for the local contest, list 2 is the global score with everyone ranked by weight class and by total score.
Looking forward to seeing big numbers from all competitors!
