Here is a picture of the last of my Christmas gifts.  I ordered these through



Captains of Crush Gripper No.1 – This grip trainer is rated to c. 140 lbs.  This is the best gripper tool I have used.  As soon as I can complete 12 reps I will buy the next size up.  As soon as I can complete 25 reps I will go up to the next size. You can find them at or

Left to Right:

Phil Pfister trading card – He is one of my favorite strongmen.  He was the first American since Bill Kazmaier (another favorite) in 1982 to win the title of World’s Strongest Man in 2006.

Franco Columbu trading card – He has been an inspiration to me since I saw him on TV competing in the 1977 WSM contest.  He was a boxer, powerlifter, and bodybuilder. He won Mr. Olympia in 1976/1981.  He also holds a doctorate in chiropractics.

Geoff Capes trading card – Another of my favorite strength atheletes.  He was a shot put champion (I loved throwing shot put) and had a famous WSM rivalry with Bill Kazmaier.
