Dinnie Pin Hold Challenge


We are hosting a virtual competition for the first two weeks of May! 

This challenge consists of a hold for time using replica Dinnie Stone pins. The competition is open to everyone, is free to enter and we will announce one winner for both Male & Female entries!

This competition is primarily for fun, and allow for everyone to compete against one another around the world, with the chance to also win some goodies!

Movement Standards


Males: 140kg & 110kg (~75% of The Dinnie Stones Weight)

Females: 105kg & 85kg (~75% of The Walking Nicol Stones Weight)

The Hold:

The competitor is challenged to lift the pins in either a straddle or side by side position. Time starts when the competitor has fully locked out the pins. Time ends once the pins hit the floor.

The winner is whoever holds the longest!

Hook grip & open grip are allowed, but no use of straps or grip aids.

The Prizes

Each Male & Female winner will receive a Deadly Grips Tshirt, a The Dinnie Stones Tshirt & their choice of our Strength Athlete Tshirts. Marcus from Team Affinity has also kindly donated a bottle of 'Grip Jizz' liquid chalk to each winner too! Chloe Brennan & Matt Jones have also donated their ‘Your Guide to Dinnie Destiny’ PDFs too!
