Cheat kink a bar to varying degrees and work on finishing them.
any ideas how to do that if you have no tools available?
For overhead bending do you guys actually use your neck flexor muscles to help with the bend or do you usually just have the bar in contact with the neck? just started bending and my neck muscles are getting pretty sore
another question about double overhand: mentally I'm weak at the beginning because I'm afraid to push a lot into my neck as I don't trust the bar 100%. Have their been times that it broke and created injury? I understand that I need to get over this fear to test my max. I trust the bars more than the bolts
I don't have this fear of course with reverse and underhand bending but I think naturally we are weaker in those positions. With underhand now I also feel the inside of my L elbow a bit (used to hurt their in the past) since I bent a 1/4x6" bolt (must have been lower grade but not sure), so I'm trying to avoid attempting 1/4 + bars underhand for now. Reverse bending feels just like working with the wrist developer in terms of general muscle recruitment.
