      Drill rod is great, it really fights back throughout the entire bend. I like to describe it to people that steel is rated to 30º, but that after the initial kink CRS often "gives up" a bit and us usually easier on the crush. In contrast, if a piece of drill rod is rated 500 lbs it stays 500 lbs through the kink, the sweep, and the crush. It ends up being an exhausting fight. The same day I bent my first Red Nail I also bent a few pieces of 19/64 x 7" drill rod and the Red Nail was a 30 second cakewalk in comparison. It doesn't have to be horrendously expensive either. I get my drill rod from Zoro.com and it's usually around $4-6 per 3ft depending on what diameter you choose, so it often works out to about $1 per 7" bar which is not that much more expensive than bolts. Plus drill rod seems to be way more consistent batch to batch from the same supplier than buying random "weld steel" from the hardware store.

      SATURDAY, 23 JAN 2021 OVERHEAD PLATE RAISE: 225 CONSECUTIVE REPS @ 5kg TEXAS PUSH-UPS: 1 > 10-REPS (55) @ 49.07s   Texas Push-Ups: An ascending ladder push-up set starting from one (1) rep and going up to ten (10) reps while quickly standing up fully after every ladder "rep set" completed. Begin standing, start the clock and rapidly drop down and perform one perfect Push-Up. Stand back up quickly and immediately drop back down again and knock-out two Push-Ups; stand up. Drop back down once again, do three Push-Ups, stand back up again. Repeat this pattern until ten ladder sets (rep sets) have been completed, ending in a standing position; stop the clock. A total of 55 Push-Ups will be performed. ~3:00+ = Poor ~2:00 = Average ~1:30 = Good ~1:00 = Excellent <50s = Exceptional

      Warm ups, stretching etc Plate loaded seated row - to +60kg 3 x reps (much heavier than you would think) dumbbell shrugs - to 40kg's 3 x reps v-grip pulldowns - 3 x reps alternating plate curls - 11kg's (25lb) 3 x reps  two arm dumbbell hammer curls - to 30kg's x 8 reverse dumbbell curls - to 10kg plus two drops x reps pronation - red band x lots each arm arm wrestling - bunch of warming up and then some half hearted slow pulls (me pulling against added band tension) Arms actually feel better in terms of joints etc after the arm wrestling but was very careful, obviously well warmed up and also no rest at all other than using the other arm an getting couple sips of water so flushing lots of blood in etc

      It's a great tool. Have had mine for awhile but haven't used it much due to gripper obsession. Now I'll really give it a go. No, me neither. I made that one for a few reasons. I'll probably never own an axle but I wanted something that would benefit it should I want to compete down the road. It's the same mechanics just even more difficult, so I think it will be a great tool for that. Also the carry over from axle to grippers should anecdotally be good. And I would say that while the bigger diameter taxes the thumbs more, the smaller one taxes fingers and wrist considerably more, in my experience. They actually feel very different. So using both I feel that I can get the best of two worlds. Those along with my knurled block should be great tools for 'base work' so to speak. I don't enjoy training on a million different tools. Same to you! 🙂

      This is the first time I try this variation. Its fun to do, and since I have no bench, it's a good horizontal press variation
