Nonsense. All steel varies all the time. I'm always looking for new head markings, especially on G2 bolts. Keeps it interesting If you're extra neurotic try to bend different markings one after the other and notate which feels harder and by how much. Makes for a fun way to progress in small increments.

Week 2. Let’s see how bad these leg curls mess me up. Biceps are still sore from Saturday.
Squat 172k x 8 x 2r
Speed Squat 110k x 6 x 2r
GM 70k x 2 x 15r
BFR Seated Leg Curl x 30-15-15
Hanging Leg Raise 3 x 8r
Ive not fooled with a mini14 much, I like the ar15 and the super scary ak. I have an ar10 in 308 I’m still trying to get used to. I’ve been shooting my 6.5 Grendel a lot, 6” gong out to 620yds is big fun.
People poo poo the 22lr but not many people volunteer to take a mag full to rate it on the fun scale. I’m thinking it would rate low, they would do the low blood pressure shuffle and then go tits up.
Nothing sucks the life out of stuff quicker than a shotgun. I have a couple boxes of 3” copper plated BB shot, pure wickedness.
I just burned through quite a bit of 22lr and 10mm from my Glock 20. It’s the first time I’ve shot handguns since the Rona arrived and the ammo run started.
Interesting quote from the Seattle Times below. Remember a couple dozen pages back when we were discussing apocalyptic scenarios that could play out if we let the economy totally crash. If you think these riots are bad, wait 'til people can't feed themselves. Get your popcorn, 'cause the fun is just getting started.
America experienced a wave of burning cities in the aftermath of a racial killing in 1968. America was hit by a pandemic in 1918 that killed even more people than the 102,000 who have died of the coronavirus. America was battered by a Great Depression in the 1930s and laid low by a Great Recession just a decade ago. America has never experienced all of this kind of tumult in the same moment. It is more than the system can bear, and people grieve for the country. - Seattle Times
Been mainly messing around with the pinch block today. First I work on grippers, then the pinch block, then the Trilobite,I usually try to get a type of PR but for now I’m still getting novice gains. I’m doing previous 1rm for reps now so we’ll see, the initial impossible feel of my top set in the beginning of pinch training is going away and I clean it well like all my implements as well.
Incorporated the Ironmind Block into my daily routine. Pretty fired up about grip in general but because the blocks difficulty for me I kinda want to specialize in it and devote more energy to it, it’s barely been used but that’s changing. Figured I’d log it here today since i enjoy using it so much, my numbers since getting it, I keep it clean cuz I want the most out of it. Here’s the numbers nothing special,some were max effort some were not
5lbs: 32 reps
10lbs: 32 reps
20lbs: 126 reps
25lbs: 32 reps
30lbs: 32 reps
35lbs,40lbs, 45lbs, 50lbs, 55lbs, and 60lbs I kept to 1 rep, I’ll bring those up
Been working with a new Ironmind Pinch Block. Love it! Look forward to setting up some pages dedicated to it in one of my grip journals that I write prs and personal bests in, the first workout I did with it I hit 56lbs microloading. I wipe it clean after use, been doing holds at lockout as well as reps to grease the groove and whatnot
