Ever Been to Bean Station, Tennessee?

If you know your gripper history you know where this message is going, otherwise, let me tell you a little bit about my next adventure…

You see, about 12 years ago a man got a crazy idea in his head that he wanted to be the first man in the world to close the Ironmind #4 gripper — something which most people thought was impossible. He tried some things that worked and some things that didn’t and came up with plenty of “unusual” training techniques for building super-human hand strength…

When all was said and done, Joe Kinney of Bean Station, Tennessee did it — the first man to close the #4 and he didn’t just close it, he slammed it shut like it was a Trainer. And a few months later Joe put together a great training video showing exactly how he did it.

…Like I said, that was over a decade ago and since then Joe has been a bit of a mystery man. However, just recently I was able to contact him through a friend of a friend and today, I’ll make my way down south to meet the man himself and shake the hand that closed the #4.

Now, I’m sure you have all kinds of questions, I know I do.

You probably want to see his “Get a Grip with Joe Kinney” video, and know how he trained with his “Secret Weapon” grip machine etc etc — I will say that very soon ALL these types of questions will be answered, so you’ll just have to stay tuned.

Meanwhile, if you want to add your name to the #4 list then you better get training. You’ll need a full set of IM grippers and you can get ’em here: Captains of Crush Hand Grippers

More updates coming later on…
