Open contest showcasing 4 new events inspired by and developed with assistance by the top athletes in the sport of Grip. Each of the four Legends will be attempting to set the world record in an event that they inspired and competing for the overall win. Come out and see how you compare to the best in the sport and perhaps surpass them.
The first event will be the even thicker Andrew’s Axle. A massive 2 3/8” bar that will test our athletes thick bar skill to the max.
Next up is the Glass Bar. Made to the specifications of Adam Glass; a full size 7 foot pinch barbell at 2.5” thick.
Kody Burns has been breaking anvil records the past 3 years and in an effort to stump him. We have cast a replica of a Jowett anvil horn and made it plate loadable to see what the real max an anvil can be lifted to.
Last but not least we have the Blob master Jedd “Napalm” Johnson showcasing What can be done on a 4" Climber Pinch.
