FORTHCOMING GRIP CONTESTS
 

 

Steel Shredder #5 is READY TO GO!!

Event: Snapping up to 3 x Grade 5 bolts, or 3 x 6” nails, etc in max 20 mins.
Up till 17 August, 2019

Snapping up to 3 x Grade 5 bolts, 6” nails, etc (Standing)
Rules:
1. The bolt/nail is usually bent back and forth using the hands and legs, but cannot be bent by the feet or on the floor.
2. Wraps for protection will be the World of Grip 10" x 4" suede wrap on each side of the bar.
3. No gloves are allowed. No wrapping or taping of any part of elbows, wrist, forearm, and hands is allowed, as is the case with all grip contest events.
4. Use a towel for leg protection. You can strap the towel to your leg with a knee wrap or gaffa tape so that the towel stays in place.
5. Bend the bolt/nail, back and forth till it snaps. Max time limit = 20 minutes
6. It is advised to have all 3 bolts or nails wrapped prior to starting as this saves time when rewrapping for the next snap. But it is up to you.
7. Time starts as soon as you start, and finishes when the third bolt or nail is snapped, or the 20 minutes is used up.
8. Someone who only snaps two bolts in the time; their score may look like 2 x G5 bolts bent in 15min.
9. Ratings - G5 bolt = 166k, 6” nail = 98k, and there will be a thinner bar for any small juniors who need it. But most adults will snap a 6” nail or G5 bolt in a 20 min time period.

You can purchase as many bolts/nails as you wish, and can have as many attempts throughout the time period till the last day.
Please sign up as soon as possible, so that we can get your steel to you in time.
For the video attempt, please follow these usual instructions.
1. Show the bolts/nails, and the snapped pieces at the end.
2. If going for a bodyweight record; please video yourself being weighed in on calibrated scales. If you only have normal scales, weigh yourself and I will allow you the B/W class above. This will allow room for any scales inaccuracy.
3. Weight class structure for records/contests
Men: 59k, 66k, 74k, 83k, 93k, 105k, 120k, 120k+
