    IronMind Products

    I love the Ironmind Apollo Axle. I do agree the products vary in their quality compared to the market. I've been really impressed with Arm Assassin's products, pricing, and shipping costs. FBBC has been great to work with, I should really order some of his non-benders bar products. Personally, I like supporting smaller businesses. Has anyone compared the Iron Mind LBH to FBBC's anvil? Are they even in the same league?

    Looking for a 5olb Blob

    It's not exactly the same as a real blob, but Barrel Strength makes a true to dimensions Blob Trainer that you can hook up to a loading pin.

    NEW MEMBERS Introduce Yourself Here

    Hello all. My name is Jake and I'm 37. I've been very focused on grip training after severing a tendon and nerve in my left index finger. It started to limit my deadlift, so I started with COC, and have slowly grown into a full grip addict.

    KTA needs to be taken very seriously since it really taxes the hands. I will say if you stay away from other grip training it will really build up your gripper strength.

    It really depends on how much grip work you've done in the past. I found it to be an intense program and would not recommend it for beginners. I found that even though my hands had toughened up by the time I did it the second time, I still taped my fingers, and at times my palms, as much as i needed to allow me to continue the high reps and as little as possible to allow them to continue to build callouses and adapt. I found the key for me was recovery, recovery, recovery. I massaged them every day, stretched them, tried to get a full nights sleep every night and for me the most helpful part was soaking them in ice water, then hot water, back and forth several times. It's also recommended in the program that the only grip work to do is KTA and all other types of grip work is put on hold until after the program is completed. That would also be my recommendation.

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    I've seen all Laine's videos and yes I think Brian's lift is the most impressive. Except for the double lift that Laine did, which I mentioned.

    My training for the #3 cert

    Grippers, baaaad day. Pushed through with btr work on the TRex Benchpress, 2x8 paused 100kg 1x1 140kg BB row 80kg 3x8 Easy workout to get going, have a lot of catching up to do after being sick. Decided to start uploading videos of some gripper closes and bench sets.

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    Yep, hence my point being no one ever fully lifted it without a tilt. In your views, is Brian's lift more impressive than this
  18. Fist of Fury

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    @Alawadhi, I agree, we should be fair. None of those lifts (non-tilted) were full deadlifts. Brian's lift was slightly tilted. Still the the most impressive lift I've seen of the MDB.

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if his skinny butt can’t lift it right now... or close to being able to. 🤡

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    I think you have a definite shot! If I were a betting man... oh wait, I am. $50 says Tanner lifts it someday!
  21. I kink over the knee. The hardest part of the wrench is the crush. Puts lots of pressure on the wrist. Have fun with your family today too!

    It is on my lifetime list! I hope to be one of them

    Which is why I posted it.

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    Question: has anyone that has been a lifetime clean athlete ever lifted the Millennium DB? I'm guessing Laine has been, but don't know his entire history.
  25. Mike Rinderle

    Brian Shaw Lifts Millennium Dumbbell!

    Due to the arguments of some here, I have new standards on what I find impressive: Anybody under 51, weighs more than 270, is more genetically gifted than me, has hands larger than 8", doesn't have a full time job, isn't all natural, eats healthy, doesn't smoke or chew, or works out inside and not a shed in the back yard is not impressive to me, no matter what they accomplish. Yea, Brian won the genetic lottery when it comes to strength sports. Yes, he isn't a "natural" athlete. Yes, this is still an extremely impressive feat because only a few men in history have ever done it. He's an elite athlete. We aren't. Get over it and enjoy the show!
  26. I bet the 10s are pretty hard. Do you kink them over your leg. I hope you have a good weekend with your family.
  27. Thanks Neal! These are from Harbor Freight. The 10” are quite a step up from the 8”. When you put the 2 wrenches side by side, the 10” ones are way bigger and thicker.
