» Hook grip advice. (Go to post)16-04-2018 @ 15:36

i've switched back to mixed grip after dropping so many lifts with torn thumbs from hooking.
mixed feels far stronger. think hook is a grip suited for larger hands that can full enclose the thumb with their fingers,
not males who have hand size almost as small as their 5' 2" girlfriend's Grin


I am lucky with quite long fingers and thumb. I use a slightly thicker bar and have no problem.

One problem I find, hooks are a bas***d for reps! Anything over 3 reps hurts like hell (if using near max loads)

400 squat is crazy!! I've watched it a few times.

No chance you where going to fail that when you had it on your back.

1000 will definitely go.

400kg and a pb is fantastic. Baby Shaw always tears the hammy.

In all seriousness, if injury free you will hit 1000 soon.

You got some stick for depth on a previous record. That 400 was awesome.

Fair play to you. You have become a cracking lifter

Cheers mate...will give some more added in grip work a go.


I liked plate pinch. Maybe hang with bar using finger grip.

Like I say, it's most likely much harder for someone with a higher strength level.

I find my hook is stronger than mixed now. Or least of a similar level.

It's just a skill that takes practice.

I think he went for a 985 total and missed 345.

Awesome for the big guy to squat 400.

If he can get his bench to 250 in comp? I think he would get 1000.

Oxman said:Epic thread bump.

Still trying to preserve with learning the hook grip. I find it doesn't hurt at all really but once I get in the region of 260kg-280kg it really doesn't feel secure at all and the bar starts to slip...any ideas what I am doing wrong?


Your poundage is much higher than mine, so I can't give great advice.

I just use fat bar deadlift doh for grip work and also plate pinches.

Long fingers and thumb also helps me with hook.

I do doh until about 70-80%, then switch to hook. Sometimes I start with it, to get my thumbs ready.

Straps on a mixed grip deadlift?!?

And to think I believed I couldn't despise him any more than I previously did!!!

Deadlifts aside, I hope he comes back and gets KTFO by Joshua. Or punches himself so hard in the face, that the doctor calls a stoppage as a result.


And he deadlifts more than you and me, without training it seriously!

I guess he is huge to be fair.

FAT_SAM said:You can tell by looking at these athletes which ones use oestrogen control/support and which don't.

The ones that do look a lot drier and less blown Shaw style face but they are always picking up injuries at maximal weight

Stan Efferding said you need to accept gyno and get surgery for it as a strength athlete if you're prone to it


I don't know much about it, but plenty of the heavier (less dry) guys are quite injury prone too.

I would imagine with such intense training and heavy competition, it's rather easy to pick up injuries, like mma.

The athletes have so many disciplines and at the top level, you're allowed no weakness, so they all push their bodies beyond their limit.

He did not and never thought that as in good lift. On lozs live stream (fuzzy and from ed's left hand side) it looked like he pressed it out but then lost balance when it went to arms length. I was asking if that was the case, hence the question mark. Was very hard to see what happened on the stream.


Ok man. Was curious that maybe an other angle showed it differently

Wasn't the best picture but on the stream it looked like ed locked it out fairly easy on the second attempt but then lost balance?


Only seen the video. You for real?

You think he locked it out?

dannyboy73 said:In all truth, I expect many will do damage in 1 or 2 events however, reality the only person Thor has to worry about at WSM is Shaw.


I can't believe I'm saying this, but Thor only needs to worry about himself.

He performs to his best, I doubt even Brian can beat him. Thor is statically stronger, younger and moves better.

I'm big Shaw fan, but he's up against it this year.
» Log lift championship - Leeds (Go to post)08-04-2018 @ 14:14 
Thor is statically the man now. The most complete strongman ever.

He could dominate for years if he wants to

He did indeed.


A fantastic result. That's a tough line up.

Would love him to make the final of WSM. Certainly has the ability to.

So has Hicks finished top 5? Fantastic achievement if he has.

I donít see anyone beating Duran at lightweight, Julio Cesar Chavez would be top of my list of potential opponents though.
Hatton v Ward would be a fun scrap.


Mayweather would give Duran trouble at 135. Though Floyd struggled bad with Castillo (losing the first fight). Floyd was a beast at 130-140.

Roy Jones vs Michael Spinks at 175 would be interesting.

Jones Jr hardly lost a round in his peak, but Spinks was a very big guy at light heavy, with great skills and power.
