I just shut my #3 gripper!!!!!!!!
wulfgeatI actually don't train anything regularly because I am supper phlegmatic. What I do do however, is a great deal of heavy partials and isometric work. The last time I trained grippers (a few months ago I think), I did holds with my 170lb elite. That was definately helpful now that I have healed, but I feel like the lockout presses are what really dialed it in for me. Yes sir Josh, these are all good times! Have you received your horseshoes?

JoshWHorseshoes have arrived good sir. But deciding not to touch them until I get a better mm0 video! Im sure you will get an official shut on the #3 soon buddy!

So last night after a years worth of training I finally one-hand pinch two 45lbs plates! It felt great and I even got a little video of it. My hand kind of twisted oddly at lock out but I'm pretty sure it was a full lift nonetheless.

So last week, I just barely maxed out my shoulder-bridge lockout press at 525 lbs. My lower arms have still not recovered from that, so I switched to 1/4 squat lockouts and one-shoulder squat lockouts. After a few months, I can still 1/4 squat 675 relatively easily, and I can do a one shoulder squat with 315 (never having done that exercise before). My goal is 800 lbs on the regular, and 500 lbs on the one shoulder (each side).
wulfgeat. . . one shoulder version, they will seriously question my intelligence.

JoshWPost a video sometime as I've never heard of one shoulder squats bro!

Attempted the Poundstone 100 rep curl challenge last Saturday. Thought it didn't bother me much afterwards. WRONG. Second day of sore biceps lol
GeraltYup. I did some set downs however...a few seconds. So technically I didn't complete it the right way.
My first set was 60 though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFG8__Undy0

Frank PizzoI tried that a while back and my biceps were sore for days...of course I hadn't trained biceps in well over a year...but still!

GeraltIt's a killer indeed.

mudhutmasherthe stainless hex in single imp's is not an easy bend. well done, sir! an edgin in singles is well within reach!
Oct 05 2014 06:06 PM
acromegamanThanks Tommy. I had Tim calibrate 1 of the 56 Edgin s I ordered and he got 588lbs so it still might take a while to get that one :)
Oct 05 2014 06:30 PM
Tim TVery nice.

335lb bench with slingshot. Couldn't do more I'm sore:(. Expect next video at 350+
mudhutmashera 335 bench with a super narrow grip is some gangster business. nevermind the slingshot.

Bent a few horseshoes to 180 today, then picked up a 60kg dumbell with a 2.5" handle and then nearly closed my #3. Just testing out my max lifts, bends and crushes!
