    Hello. I was actually a (non-active) member of this board 10+ years ago, but I'm back in the grip game now. I'm mostly into bending, or at least training for bending, but last night I picked up my old CoC #2 and was happy to still able to shut it. My long-term goals are to be able to bend a red nail and shut the #3 (yes, I'm still living in 2006). I also do partner acrobatics (primarily as a base) and am getting more into hand balancing myself. There is an incredible amount of wrist strength/stabilization that go into handstands, and basing people in mono holds (mono hand-to-hand or foot-to-hand). Back in the day @bencrush sent me an extensive bending kit that I (sadly) still haven't gone through as of yet. Also, years ago I used to train at a powerlifting gym with Brent Barbe. Didn't realize how accomplished he was at the time?

    Question for those who have lifted the Blob

    Lifted it (after several attempts) the first time I encountered one. I put my "success" down to hand size, decent thumb strength, and plenty of pinch training beforehand. Frankly I remember being quite surprised I managed to lift it - as it was during and after competing in a grip comp !!!

    My training for the #3 cert

    Did some L sits to tuck planche also. I wanted to see if I could go to pike from L sit already as a test but I'm miles away from a mobility standpoint, also lacking hip strength. Ended up being tuck planche instead. I'm not ready for this movement at all yet. Need to work on mobility for a couple of months probably first. Which I already knew. I'm capable of very close to zero movement in a pancake stretch before I round the lower back so my hips are basically totally locked. Actually pretty surprised of how bad it was. No wonder I cant squat even with a gun pointed to my head.

    2020 International King Kong Grip Challenge

    there is plenty of time, don't worry here in austria/tyrol we had the hardest lockdown in the last months. now all is alright, we can do all, inside venues up to 500 persons, outside up to 2500 persons. but if a new lockdown comes we have no problems, the penalty is maximum only 1000€ (1200$) so we can do king kong with no issues and no masks.
  21. Not my best deadlift session but not my worst either. Work is killing me lately so that and the crazy heat and humidity in my buddy’s garage gym are definitely affecting me (I swear more than anyone I have ever met and beat just kills me) My baseline deadlift strength is definitely on the raise though after some set backs (finger surgery, cellutious in my leg, pec strain, wrist issue.....blah blah). It’s obviously still too low for my size but my lower body has always been behind since I have a history of lower body genetic issues and injuries but I gotta keep fighting. Friend’s plates weigh heavy so every weight is like 15 heavier at least Deadlifts 4 warm ups 315 lbs - 2x 355 lbs - 2x 385 lbs - 2x 405 lbs - 2x. I wanted more but it wasn’t there today. Humidity was god awful in the garage and I have been pushing myself hard at work with a board report coming up. Stiff Leg Deficit Deadlifts (standing on 25s) 225 lbs - 2 sets of 10x
  22. Sounds like an awesome session mike. Gotta love days like that. Congrats on the PRs

    Powerlifting Log

    Lots of good work there buddy
  27. Bw squats. Glute bridges. Red in IMPs. Red in 2/3 IMPs. "Q" 0-1 DR @ 8 3/8" in 1.5/1 IMPs. Got to 20 degrees in singles today. Pretty good but ripped off an index callous. I used 1.5 for two hits to 48 degrees. Finished in singles. Took way longer than I wished. Was under a time crunch and had to finish it off quickly. Managed it...but it took a toll. Any progress is progress. Glad I bent today.
