    Correct. Injuries. Only an opening deadlift at Nationals. Lackluster workouts. They might be trying to tell me something.

    My training for the #3 cert

    It is somehow logical but why? Low friction means that there is no high force involved. High friction involves high force. And if this force is fully stopped it may be too much for the skin. Maybe it is supposed to slip a little. So we must for safety reasons sacrifice some work of our hands for slips.

    Oddly enough, every one of those has a better return investment than grip. Lol!

    Only on the gripboard can you literally not be good at something and everyone tries to convince you that you are good based on the 99% trope. You fools do it to yourselves. Im allowed to not be good at shit. And be ok with it. No one is good at everything. You guys seem to take issue with that fact. but you guys maybe on to something... I should start a BBQ restaurant and hit pit competitions since I can make Bbq pulled pork out of the crockpot. Or. I can join E-sports. After making a giant meatball in minecraft Im sure I can kick butt in a crazy call of duty tournament. Maybe I can start my own construction company since I built a multi level structure out of Lego with my kid.

    I’m not interested or qualified in any way to being anyone’s shrink. I will state the obvious though.. if watching these guys makes you feel bad, then don’t watch them? If something makes me feel bad, or hurt, I stop doing it.. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Accept bending.. that hurts and I keep doing it... 👀

    I appreciate that, Mike! It will definitely be a process as I go one-by-one putting each variable to the test.

    Yes, Baraban has a Horseshoe Bender that works as you describe. York also used to have the Iron Shoe Trainer (same principle).

    That is a little counterintuitive. That’s why I’ve never messed with Zerchers. I know my anatomy would not allow me maintain great form.

    Powerlifting Log

    It’s time for doing more than tweaking my current routine. Time for a broad sweeping change in my approach. That being said, what I’ve been doing has been berry berry good to me up until recently. I rededicated my training to powerlifting in 2014 when I was 180 pounds. At the time I was running a lot and doing a fair amount of grip. My squat wasn’t much over 300 and my bench was well under 250. In 2018 at 229 pounds I went 546, 320, 628 at Raw Nationals, with the squat being an all-time PR by a good margin. Shortly after that I deadlifted 585x4 with possibly a rep in the tank. This past summer I benched 330x3, touch-and-go. Then last October I bumped up my squat to 562. And now I feel there’s not much left to squeeze out of this wave I’ve been riding. I see it as a positive. An opportunity to learn and grow... and be trite and corny. 😆 Also, come to find out, getting older is a real thing. Heres my plan, which will be a work in progress for the duration: much more volume, far less intensity, and a bit less slavish devotion to numbers that get stuck in my head. This was, in large part, my loosely devised plan back in 2014, but the way I tweaked that and listened a little too much to “what I should be lifting “, as opposed to what my body was trying to communicate through my thick skull is no longer serving me. Of all the training strategies out there Reactive Training Systems resonates most with me, and has for a long time Now it’s time to follow those themes more closely. It will be a departure from my natural inclination in training and will require a lot of self restraint. But I welcome letting go of all that pressure I tend to put on myself. I look forward to the experimentation , even if it will take some getting accustomed to a new mindset. I’m hopeful in time the new mindset will be just as motivating for me as chasing PRs in training has been for me in the past.
  19. Like holding a gripper upside down and trying to pull it apart on the side of your hip like a horse shoe, Has or is there such a device ?

    Man everybody weaker than you must really suck then, I should just quit lifting all together and take up knitting. I just hope I can find some thread that isn't too heavy for my fragile hands.
