Ganglion in my wrist has been pressing on the nerve again which explains things. Bent an A and C today not going after the E for a bit until it goes down again.

    They don't want to treat mine due to where it is. Surgery could be an option but only 80% chance of working without permanent damage. See how it works out long term here. See if I can work around the limitations

    I'm almost clueless to how I'm actually doing it! Must have found the secret to bench by accident lol

    Let's see a video. Maybe we can see the secret to your bench.

    I will have to get one sorted, I don't bench as much as some of the bigger fellas on the board like you!

I've decided that (barring any unexpected turns) Jedd's location of Worlds Strongest Hand's will be my first Grip Comp. Now onto the training countdown....

Has anyone had success (or failures) with Stronglifts 5x5? Thought about doing 5-3-1 but didn't want to stick to 1 exercise per session.

    Been training my brother on 5x5 and his deadlift went from 110kg-155kg and bench 60kg- 115kg. I have coached him since september, he would do cycles of 5x5 then swap to doubles and triples for a few sessions then go back on it

    Since I'm just starting out, I don't have my max Bench/Squat/DL yet. Once I do, it will be easier to track progress. Thanks!

    If you need any help or training ideas I have revolving around 5x5 feel free to mail me brother! You will get fast gains at first but you will be stronger overall after

Just received my grippers from eBay IM #2.5 / #3 / #3.5 and a RB210 . . . must say the RB is very shiny and knurling not a rough

    How does the #2.5/#3 feel compared to your rated grippers?
    Apr 16 2015 10:37 AM
  • radders112's Photo
    radders112
    Juri: Training currently on phase 5 of RRBT and can parallel close the #2.5 for reps (2-5)
    Josh:I currently only have WT that are rated so my 130 GM i would say is slightly harder than my #2.5 but the new #3 i have seems very light compared to my other 3. Would ideally like to get them rated to see what each one pulls

    Lol, its a multi tool, if im not mistaken i think it isn't legal round your way because of the locking blades.

Reversed a G5 to 20 degrees straight after waking up, will rest up and try again in the evening!

    I really hope you get it. Think I will be the full 40degrees after a short transition back to steel bending!

    Id say rest up for a week Josh, reverse tends to take a week to recover, im sure after that youll destroy that bolt!!
    Apr 11 2015 06:28 AM

    JoshW
    Thanks bro. I think a week off will do me good! Strengths definitely there just need to a session or two after a week off to transition back into holding hits better etc

Either the CRS I had been getting was weak or today being half sick I am weak as drill rod E defeated me with only a wobble :(

    Do volume on the 6" length maybe 5 bends per session. Definitely try 60Ds though! level 7 orange is a reasonable start. Rest and eat up and that E bar is yours
    Apr 09 2015 03:57 PM

    so not too far off. Thanks much!

    No problem! Watch lots of videos on reversing, I usually do before a big bend. Hope you get better soon
