|If I had to describe the Hub in one word it would be.....Humbling.|

|I got my Hub about a week ago. First time i used it i put on 5kg 11lbs and i could barely hold on. What a shock. After the second workout my hold time increased defenitely. Its making a difference on my gripper strength. Im new to grip work. I have the COC T and number 1.Before i got the Hub i couldnt close the COC 1 even for 1 rep. Now im closing it for 5 reps no problem with either hand. Its well worth getting this piece of equipment. Ive ordered the Rolling Thunder now cant wait. Hopefully soon Ill be stong enough to graduate to the COC 2. Thanks Iron Mind for bringing out High Quality grip tools.|

|Ive been training with the pinch grip block for a long time and I thought I would do well with the hub too because both works the pinch grip. I was mistaken. The hub is harder. This thing is bigger than it appears on the picture, extremely solid. I thought it would be solid, but not this solid. Will last forever.|

|I run an IronMind Hub challenge at the Fitness Expos. Got my first one in Jan and hit 50# three months later. Got another and just hit 60# plus the hub and pin at the CrossFit Finals in Ca. ProMera Sports hired me to do the hub challenge in Vegas. Awesome tool. See you in Vegas, give it a try, Ill be there at the Con-Cret booth with my two Hubs. Keep Pinching.|

|You can call it what you want - a mock York, a pincher or a hub - but I daresay that this is actually a construction worker. If you are working with the CoC #2 and have yet to close a #2.5 with a credit card set, you can either continue doing your negatives or you can spice up your training with the hub! My very first lift was 22 lbs with either hand. If your first lift is about as mediocre as mine, you can count yourself LUCKY. In a month, this guy WILL help you crush the next CoC, and he will help you good.|

|I have been using my 3 Hub for three months and it has taken me to the next level. It is built to last and should never let you down. Dont forget to get a plate loading pin and clip, theyre made with the same excellent workmanship. I now am able to lift 50#. And the best part is, Im 68 years old. I am not a strongman, just a determined man. Thanks IronMind.|

|Very hard to lift! My wife growing up a Dairy farmer can almost lift as much as me!|
