Can i join the race? Because of the nature of my work i travdl a lot and have long office hours sitting i train on and off. But i do train. My goal is the Red nail cert by june this year. Should get it by that time if not then ill be stopping training for like 27 days and return. This will harm my strength. I have been bending lots of 60ds in everyway to build hand toughness in IM pads. Did once or twice a g5. Will train today too with a bit more serious steel lets see where am i. Dont expect lots of videos unless its the harder steel type (i already have videos on my youtube account gripalawadhi, you see me bend a lot). So can i join?
Of course you can, lets get it done. I have some grade 5 bolts that just came in the mail. I have a lot of school work this weekend but I'm going to give it shot Monday in IM pads. been pretty sore from general workout so I haven't given them my best shot yet.

Ok did a bending session. Was pretty good actually. All bends in IM pads. Warm ups, 7 easy 60d nails, big g2 attempt failed (mini kink), took another big g2 bent very fast, g8 bolt in 2 min, 70d in under one min (loved it!) (i always seemed to be better at 7" than 6"), another 70d but mini kick (these bastards varies a lot), bastard attempt only kink, fbbc 1/4 sq 7" bent in 10 sec, finally 70d again bent in 4 min or so. I seem to have problem with the kink though. Too much. Cant seem to transfer too much power, once its kinked i can bend it easily. Hands beated up and forefingers even more! Then cooled down with three easy 60ds. Then did some work with 12lb sledge and wrist curls/and reverse curls. Time to rest.
What? This an insane workout! You should be smashing the Red already with workouts like these! What's stopping you?
Honestly, I'm baffled. This is as much steel as I bend in three weeks.
Are the big G2's you're bending a 5/16" x 6" stock? If so I think I may have procured a couple today. Are you bending the square stock on the flat side or on a corner?
You are a machine sir!

Can any body in the race do a G5 in IM pads? I know you murdered the blue Chez. Im assuming you can.
I'm sure I can. I need to get my pads back from a friend to prove it though.

Haha yes i have been known to bend a lot. But i injured my pointer finger little but with some ice it'll be healed in a day.
Yes the big G2 is the 5/16 in 6". Some are easy some are hard. And i bent the fbbc sq on the corner. Yes it's easeir that way but it's not like i want to that way. It just goes and since i am using ironmind pads it's annoying to rewrap the steel. I dont like to rewrap.
If your interested in bending you can always check my old log here on the bending forum. It's in the workout section topic called bending. Also my youtube i have some decent bends that i used to do in the past as i am a fbbc shiny bender, grand bastard, huge hex,...etc. My youtube account is gripalawadhi

The square is hard to stick on the flat. It seems to favor rolling to the corner, which is I agree is annoying. I'll give that big G2 a shot as well.
I'll give your channel a look.

Thanks for the compliment! I hope i am inspiring enough. Soon with dedicated training you will bend a Red!!!
