Only 3 men was able to complete this pull Derek was one of them.

18 reps with this "small" GMC Canyon truck!

Travis wins this event loads a 380lb stone on a 72" platform!

A new competition World Record log press at 400lbs!

In the end as I expected Derek wins showing he is on track to win the WSM this year as long as he stays healthy in my opinion.

Final results:

Derek Poundstone - 127 points
Travis Ortmayer - 117
Andy Vincent - 99.5
Van Hatfield - 96
Marshall White 87.5

Original blob being lifted

Here is another clip from my trip to Sorinex a few weeks ago. The blob being lifted is the Original blob Richard Sorin made many years ago. I seen both half's of the blob and many many more there. He probably has the most blob's laying around in the world. A great feat of grip strength.

Jens Pulver on Grip Strength

This is a great way to stress your grip on the pullups when you may not "think" you have the time to train your grip directly. If you have the equipment you could also attach softballs/baseballs to chains and use the balls to grab and do pullups that way.
