    Hahahaha, best Mexican food I've had is here in droves. Can't hardly swing a dead cat without hitting a good Mexican restaurant or excellent taco truck. Funny you should say that, we just overnighted a box of frozen tamales to some of my wife's family in Iowa. - Aaron

    If all you have is 6x2 and if Aaron's source doesn't work for you just center the bar at 2.5" from the face of one edge. The additional mass on the long side might make flexion a bit harder than a 5x2.
  6. Thanks! I have one 187 bar that I will probably try in a week-or-two. Might cut it down a few inches from my last attempt. I also have one of the 152 bars, but doubt I'd be able to get in the 20-22" range to be competitive. I've done very little training with the shorter stock and it remains awkward for me.

    You know. And if that’s part of what helped you rewrite the record books... I’ll take 2 dozen, please.

    I appreciate it. Just trying to keep all the suspicious guys who are stronger than me on the level. 😇

    Your assessment is spot on. I appreciate the confirmation, Ben. I really didn’t even consider leather as an option. When I finally heard that some guys were using leather I went and bought some. But the kind I got was not suede; it was a very hard and brittle leather and first time I tried a Red it busted through and cut my palm. Then I was at a loss and totally frustrated before I found out I was simply using the wrong kind of leather. All trial and error stuff.

    PM sent on the tubing. I think 2x6 would be way too pricey and harder to get any comparable wrist flexion with it.

    That would be awesome, PM sent.

    I need to see your hand size documented on video and signed by a notary. Your hands are only 1/4” bigger than mine and thick bars snicker every time I’m near. This just can’t be...😤🙁😢😭

    YEEESSS that’s what I like and feel is my strength. Top roll

    Outside pulling relies on riser strength, hand strength, hammer curl and pronation strength which fits into grip/wrist stuff pretty well anyway.

    outside pulling is the top roll, posting type moves etc. Im an older guy too in my 40's and a lot of deep hook pulling or sidepressure hits the inner elbows pretty hard. Golfers elbow is the norm for a lot of hook pullers. Also I think for older guys table time should be much less frequent and probably more leaning towards gym training but that's just my opinion. I got in trouble when I tried to pull every week.

    What is outside pulling?

    I can't get 2X5 rectangle tube, but I can get 2X6 for the Saxon bar. Aaron, just for conversation, do you think using this would mess up the wrist factor that comes into play on this lift? This particular dimension of rectangle tube is kind of pricey, so I don't want to go to the trouble of making one and it not really be beneficial.

    Haha @EricMilfeld my hand is a paltry 8 inches and my implements a rusted and bound to perfection! 😂😂😂

    @EricMilfeldI was curious about the towel being used to bend the Red and tried it myself after a few months of being able to bend a Red at will. And found it WAY HARDER than using any other type of pads. The grip requirement was off the charts. So the joke's really on the guys who thought you were somehow "cheating" using the towel. Maybe in their mind it looked easier because it was fluffy and thicker than most other bending pads. But it sure doesn't protect you from the bar tearing through and just plain sucks because it slips all over the bar when putting pressure on it.

    That’s awesome just take the table time real slow and I’m my opinion outside pulling is a little easier on the body and elbows but that’s just make. Good luck!

    My family is tentatively planning a week-long road trip ending in Tuscon for this comp. Still working out all the details.

    I knew you had a secret! And all this time I thought it was hand size and bindy implements. 😆 I’m a bad person... Your dedication is admirable. Alright, so more training sessions at Uncle Julio’s! Uhhh... minus the arm wrestling; I’m on the donor’s list awaiting a new right arm. Why’d you let me do it, Tommy? You knew I had beer and Margaritas... Chris, we needn’t worry about him getting in the volume with his spoon... my concern is his spoon drifting over to my plate...
