  1. Today
  2. Starting Sunday, I'm going to be starting a new phase in my bending. I'm going to bend one Red or Bastard only on Sun-Wed. And that's just to keep the mental aspect up. My body and simply isn't keeping up with my desire so these 4 days will typify my "back-off" phase. Thursday, Friday and Saturday are still fair game for damaging myself. Red in 2/3 IMPs. Red in 1/2 IMPs. Red in 1/3 IMPs. X 2. Absolutely destroyed the second 1/3 IMPer. Was going to do more but hands tears announced their presence with authority. Its a little frustrating that I'm not quite locked in on my minwrap grab. The slightest change can make a huge difference. That's what training is for right? Felt like it was a nice minwrap session regardless.

    Mobster's Wrist Roller Work

    Friday Hot and humid day. Pain in the ass getting sleeves on etc etc. So a slow sluggish day. Popped into the local gym briefly as they reopened today (I'd arranged for a local girl to make a celebratory cheesecake) Close Grip Bench Press to 162.5kg x fail, dropped to 140kg x 4 x 1 reps - kinda crappy Low Cable Row to stack + 20kg x 8 reps - felt heavy ATB to +120kg x 3 x 3 reps

    How did it go? Edit: sorry, I thought for some reason it is Saturday today 😴

    My training for the #3 cert

    Became interested in another position as well fortunately, the V sit. A~ 160 degree one. So I'll work on that too alongside the handstand stuff. Am a little excited by training again. These things give me much more than I get from lifting weights. The mobility alone is golden for quality of life.

    FRIDAY, 14 AUG 2020 SLOW-TEMPO SPHINX PUSH-UP; 25-20-15-10-5 (75) @ BW SBB REV WRIST CURL; 6 X 6 @ 35KG BELT FOREARM PRONATION; 6 X 6 @ 10>50KG CBL BELT FOREARM PRONATION; 3 X 6 @ 32KG KB
  9. 13/8 CoC #3 F (162) - Get stuck at the point where handle is parallel to filled surface. LH: 0 0 0 RH: 0 0 0 DO - Better form this time but still no power transition to the bar when attempting the yellow. 2 x 5 mm x 5" sq crs 0 x yellow Comments: Really weak today, the benchpress was a disaster. Hopefully in beginning of next week I´ll receive some new steel so in can close the gap between 5 mm sq and yellow.

    Great work and impressive as always Don! Thanks for the detailed write up, nice to see your thought process for training for such a feat. Well done

    August 13, 2020 Before Supper Wrapped my thumb. I typically don’t on overhead but I wanted too see how it felt. Not sure if it changes anything. I’m also doing all reps very controlled, poking my head through and getting the bar back. Definitely lacking zazz today. Especially with a drop set that I can barely keep up to the reps of my work sets. Plan was to easily be in the 10-12 range for the 155 stuff. Hate off days. Curls are more about a forced supination stretch. I’m also under the impression if I add curls during the week my fatceps will grow. Strict Press 155 x 2 x 8r, 135 x 9/8 Strict BB Curl 85/95/95 x 8r

    Anti rust treatment on COC.

    Just for information it seems that two types of metal should be avoided with evapo rust: magnesium and cadmium ... Not very common in my opinion in grippers although some paints contain cadmium, so to see for painted springs.😕

    Thanks a lot for your answer! I am just going to receive evaporust, which is overpriced in France unlike the USA. I will try it without delay, as you said I have a lot more to gain than to lose!🙂

    My training for the #3 cert

    Handstand tension holds Ppp Piriformis stretch SL glute bridge Quad stretch Straddle pulses, these were super easy now, probably because my hips are way more open. Also I could sit at 90 degrees, before I had to lean back a lot to be able to do them Fire hydrant circles Swivel hips BB rows ***

    Anti rust treatment on COC.

    I've been meaning to try Evapo-rust actually. I would be willing to risk scrapping a gripper as the guinea pig. My problem is I don't have a gripper with a rusty spring...

    Anti rust treatment on COC.

    I've had good luck with using 3-in-1 as a penetrating treatment and fine steel wool. Really slop it on there with an old tooth brush or something and let it sit. It takes a little elbow grease and effort to get in all the nooks and crannies. CoC springs are polished, not chromed so you should be okay in that respect. There is no chrome to lose/damage. There are rust remover soaks you can try if it's really bad. WD-40 makes one, and I've seen Evapo-rust be extremely effective. However I will say I have not tried either on grippers and while they will definitely remove the rust, I cannot promise they won't discolor the spring. None of these products will "weaken" the spring. I don't believe that is possible with chemicals. I will say I would opt for a clean and discolored spring over a rusty one. So it might be worth giving one of these products a try if 3-in-1 and light steel wool doesn't give a good result.
  24. Stephen is blitzing through these grippers. I hope the MM6 is the same way. Time to join this hallowed ground as the 11th member!

    10 years of (bi-weekly) Ironmind Red Nail bends

    The final one will be this Sunday. I might keep it going for a few more weeks, or at least until the end of August just to allay any schedule/calendar anomalies. But this weekend will be the final official bend/attempt, to mark the culmination of ten years. Don's feats are pretty incredible. Beyond incredible in a lot of ways!
