Ben- thanks man, I appreciate it!

100107

Recovery day
Cleans:
worked on form at 205 x 2 sets

18" Rack Pull:
worked up to 585x3
down set @ 465x3

Sled Drag:
350x80ftx2
350x40ftx2

The Sled wasn't very heavy but taking it 80ft killed my quads and my endurance sucked!
Need to work on endurance!

you made 12 reps per side with a 100pound kb? oh man, i think thats really very strong. iīm looking forward to get one rep with a 106 pounder. thereīs a challenge on dragondoor.com. itīs called the beast challenge. you have to make one rep C&p with a 106 pounder as well as one pullup with it and one pistol to get the thing done. i think there arenīt a lot of people who have done it yet. think this will be no problem for you.
best wishes , nightowl

thanks man, I am not sure how to do those other KB exercises.?? I am doing the C&P because it is now a strongman event at an upcoming contest. In the contest we have to go for 60 seconds. Conditioning is really the tough part.
Good luck.

You are very strong, those side DLs are tough.

How do you like the PDA Inch Trainer? Have you tried the Inch Replica?

BTW, I'm originally from EGF.

thanks man
The inch trainer is awesome! Great grip tool. I have tried the Inch Replica. I could not break it off the ground. I could lift it with by stopping the rotation with my other hand, haha.
My training partner Dave Juma got some air time and another training partner Matt Brouse will it lifted next time they meet I'm sure, as these guys are thick handled pinch monsters!
