    Are you doing anything to 'warm up' before working with the grippers? And do you have a light one to start off with? Jumping right into a #1/#2 could cause some issues...

    Haha... that thing would make for a terrible barbell.



    That would be awesome!

    Thank you! Unfortunately with this implement technique is pretty much out the window unless you have a gigantic wingspan, which I do not.



    Thank you! Repping everyone back in the thread. :)

    I have a plate load piece from Nautilus and it works well with lighter weights but gets a bit shaky when you load it up. It was purchased used and was not a huge investment so I am pleased based on...

    Thank you!



    I appreciate the positive feedback... tried to rep you back but am on spread.

    Pressing on the grass was probably the most dangerous part of the lift since you could lose footing and drop the implement on yourself; other than that it is just very awkward.

    Thank you!



    That is funny... you guys were like the Ninja Turtles. The grates are definitely deceptively heavy/awkward!

    Thanks! This was tough because of the width of the implement - you have to press out in front of you which is super awkward.



    Haha... not a new technique, just a new implement. :)

    That is the correct term... will see if I can update the video.

    Am curious how much a manhole cover weighs in comparison; it would likely be a bit easier to press due to the grip being more...

    I have been in similar situations (demanding job, newborn, etc.) - my advice is to keep the intensity and perhaps even the volume a bit lower during the week and then sleep in on one of the weekend...

    Your best bet is to stay away from any products with a 'proprietary blend' and preferably looks for one that says NSF (banned substance free) on the label. If you are worried about pre-workout going...
