    Kevin Nee: "I actually don’t do any grip exercises besides actual events, I cant even shut a number 2 COC. For this contest I really, really worked on my clean and I also went with a thumb-less grip. I knew the bar was fixed and I knew I could throw the weight up high and fast enough and I also knew I could dip under it fast enough, so thumb-less was definetly way to go."

    That doesnt make much sense. I know people who don't even lift and can close it.

    i think it helps if you have larger hands as well so if you have small hands that is a disadvantage.

    I couldn't close the #1 when I first got it. I now close the #3 with a sub 7 inch hand though...you just gotta keep at it.

    Took me about two weeks to be able to close a CoC 1. When I started I could only go between 1/2 and 3/4 of the way

    I have the Trainer and the 1. I can close them both. Some guy at my old gym had a #2 and I could only get it like half way. Thems is hard yo.

    I only do single reps. I know people who do like sets of 10 with them. I'm like damn.
