    After seeing the @Too Tall do 40 reps with his Blob 50 in a little over 3min, I decided I wanted to try to do 100 lifts on my Blob 50 in less than 10min. I succeeded in getting 104 reps (extras in case I miscounted) in 8:33. I also got a pretty bad flapper on my left thumb in the last set. I would love to see some other folks give this a try.

    And he doesn't spend all his time telling everyone how good he is or about some gimmick obscure world record he holds. He just stays humble, and trains.

    I failed this bend last week. Very happy with getting it today. Took everything I had. Bust a bunch of blood vessels all around my eyes and on my eyelids.

    Hi Guys, Coming to you from my apartment in New York City. Things are not good here. My office in Midtown Manhattan has been shut down for a week so far. For those asking if anyone knows anyone with it, yes, so far I know about five people. One is in the hospital and starting to make a recovery. The other four are quarantined in their homes, two of which have a 102 degree fever. Those two are in their 30's. I know several others that are currently waiting on their test results. People close to me, not in amazing physical health to begin with. Here's what I can tell you. Whatever your thoughts are on the actual virus itself, the panic here is real. People will not go out, and if they do, they're wearing gloves and masks. Businesses are shut down and people are losing their jobs or not being paid. Businesses that, a month ago, were doing absolutely great. You live check to check and your job is closed and not paying you and your rent is due first of the month. Is this still funny? There will not be enough hospital beds or ventilators to care for the rate that the virus is spreading in this city. Nor will there be enough masks for those treating those that are sick. I've been hearing a lot of "but it only has a 1% fatality rate." Well, most of you probably have access to a calculator. Go ahead and punch in what's 1% of 9 billion people. If your town is quiet and cozy and this is not yet a real thing for you, I'm very happy for you. But understand, this is real and people are suffering.

    Still training. Just got off track with the log as I adjust my workouts at my friends home gym and the fitness center in my building. Today I attempted my 199 Rated GHP 9 for the first time ever. I didn't really feel on and I had trouble getting my CNS firing today. My set was also off big time and fumbled it bad and started wider than MMS. The set has always been my weakness and GHPs have a hard set and sweep making them always feel harder than their rating to me. Its the first time I have missed my goal gripper since coming back from surgery. After analyzing the video, I immediately noticed my mistake. See the big gap between the pinky and the other fingers. I fumbled the set and started wider than MMS and those fingers are too high causing me to loose leverage. If I can get an efficient set, I can close this gripper. "If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost." GHP 9 -1, Chez - 0. Now I want revenge........

    I will use a Rolling Thunder to train the event. It’s the same movement, uses the same tendons, muscles, ligaments, etc., and you can use more on the RT to train. I prefer not to spend travel money for another new implement either. But if you have a 2.5 inch crusher, train on it, the 2.25 will feel like a one inch bar on Contest Day. Most of the time, I don’t have the actual implements, and use substitutes.The exception is I always buy the latest Weirdo gadget, which, despite my training with it, is a ridiculous disaster each time (I think not one, but FIVE women, beat me on the shallow hub last year, (and I am a former World Recorder Holder on the IM Hub!)). I have zero of the actual implements this time, and of course I will buy this year’s latest Weirdo implement (Grab Ball). It’s inexpensive, and is unlike any prior gadget (but similar to the Bomb, which I hated and sold years ago). Maybe this time I will beat all the women on the Weirdo gadget, which is getting increasingly difficult to do as they up their game, and my Medicare Card gets more use. I usually do best on events where I don’t have the official implement (Flask for example). Don’t let a quarter of an inch on an implement stop you from having a good time. King Kong is fun, and it’s something to look forward to doing in a post-Corona Virus world in 7 months.

    You know, this might be my favorite current thread on the forum right now. Everyone’s plans for whatever they were doing, going, watching this Spring, and now it looks like, Summer, are gone/changed/over/dropped/kaput. But the end of October, 2020? Even the most pessimistic person believes this “thing” ruining our plans will be over. And we don’t have to go to a gym to prepare for it. We are going to have a good time, it’s one of the only Sure Things we can predict for 2020. Every time I see a new venue added, a new country added, I feel good about Life. I think a lot of our hobby/sport/obsession is silly/goofy/overrated. But this year, this thing is BIG. It gives you something to look forward to, a certainty in a screwed up uncertain world. And trust me, unlike some, I do NOT feel like this Forum is a benevolent fraternity banding together and making the world a better place. But for one day, all across the world, for the participants, it ain’t too bad...

    Congrats to David Shamey from Russia for joining Ukrainian's Ushenko and Kupinsky in a 3 way tie at the top of the GHP Gripper Challenge with a huge Level 9 for 2 reps! Who is going to break this deadlock and become the first man to close a Level 9 for 3 reps?

    I was tired of sitting on the floor wraping my bars. So I made this table. While at it I tried to make it as functional as possible. I just need a ruler or a measurements tape on the wooden surface and a magnet. Then it will be complete I'm proud of this project and I hope you like it.

    Warning! over 15 minute video. Check it out when you guys get a little extra time. This is the steel Jaden sent me Jaden much thanks for the steel brother! the hard 8-3/8” was a PR for me. I don’t think I’m back to my previous level yet, but I’m super proud of the 8-3/8x3/8” bend in singles. Never done 3/8” that length in singles. the 80D was sort of a speed PR I think. Only 5 hits! But have bent 80Ds in single IMPs in the past. I actually sort of regret not doing that in imps. But hey, still a pr on speed at least. yeeyee!

    Tested the FBBC 2.25" crusher and FBBC grab ball this A.M. - The 2.25" crusher is an incredibly well-constructed handle, which spins very well, has nice texture- truly a GREAT handle! I predict a few men will be over 250lbs. The grab ball is very cool and solid construction - it will be a fun lift and I will say top guys will be over 200lbs.

    This is where I'm at. I am not about to put my people at risk before doctors have a handle on how to treat this thing. All the weird macho posturing I have seen elsewhere on the internet is so bizarre to me. No amount of physical strength or mental fortitude is going to keep a virus from filling up you or your loved ones lungs with fluid until you can't breathe anymore. I'm making sure to keep my hands washed and away from my face when I'm in public, and staying away from air travel and large crowds. My life hasn't ground to a halt. Hell, my whole city is still mobilized in a recovery effort after getting nailed by a tornado last week. There might be some people freaking out about the virus in some places, but here, we are just trying to live our lives.

    I hosted this contest this weekend to get more local guys involved. It turned out pretty good we had 5 participants which was pretty good for such short notice. I did not hit any major PR’s but i have been staying pretty consistent given my inconsistency in training here lately. i did have some guys that were at my previous comp. they both hit several PR’s on SB, Axle and Saxon! The biggest lift of the day went to @Roy Golden he managed to pull 92.3lbs on the blockbuster pinch block. This is an implement we just acquired a week ago! Big lifts coming from him in the future!

    Since the Armlifting Contest was canceled at the Arnold, Armlifting USA allowed us to put on a freebie. After coming home from the Arnold on Sunday afternoon, I put on a contest at my gym at 5pm. There were 4 of us that participated: Jason and Melissa Dingey, my wife Sara and myself. Silver Bullet, Apollon's Axle, Rolling Thunder and Saxon Bar. Not sure if competing at the Rogue Record Breakers and walking around Columbus for 3 days had anything to do with it but the wife and I were both drained. That being said, my training #s have been going the wrong way lately. As such, no prs were had by me. Sara did manage a nice little pr on Silver Bullet. Putting up 2.4sec on a #2 gripper. This was her only pr of the contest. Melissa and Jason came in ready to murder some numbers. Melissa hit some new prs on axle (230lbs), RT(110lbs) and saxon bar (110lbs). Jason finished with 3 massive prs: 17.8sec with a #4 Silver Bullet, 420lb axle and 240lb saxon bar. Although my numbers could have been a lot better it was a fun spur of the moment contest. The next contest I put on will be sometime this summer. Now time to get back to training

    I did my MM0 cert yesterday, so I guess it's time to take this a little more seriously. I train grip 3-4 times per week on top of a powerlifting/strongman routine, but I figure I'll mostly just post about grippers here (unless I do something especially neat with another implement, hit a PR, or something else of the sort).

    Got in a bending session tonight. Bent my first Bastard. Tried a Shiny and got a reality check. IronMind is supposed to be finding me a referee for my Red cert, but who knows when that will be with all this COVID-19 mess.

    Man, I'd give that a try, but I'm really focused on training for the Barbed Wire Lift.

    Champion!! Stephen is going far on the ladder, the mans crushing strength is unreal. He started Grip when he did DFW Europa expo Armlifting meet 9 months ago. Dudes a baby in grip and already shutting 188-191 lb grippers in training. Watch this one closely

    I just submitted a request to IronMind. As an aside, I have noticed that a lot of people don't like using IMPs. If you are using something else, what is it and where do you get it? I have some old leathers that someone gifted to me, but they seem really slippery and floppy and hurt my hands a lot when I use them compared to the IMPs.

    Thanks Tommy, I deserved the beat down Adam issued but I am better for it, LOL. Iam sorry to you as well. TBH, even though you dislike KP your initial lifts are excellent! Peace, Michael

    Great lifts big guy! since you were just so humble, I’ll do the same.. I could not come close to thumbless lifting 163 on Tanners 3” trilobite. Not. Even. Close. youre wrist are mega powerful when only 2 guys on the scene can out do you! given the genuine nature of your sentiments, I actually feel terrible for picking on you. So you just beat me twice! Once on the trilobite, then again with humility. (smiley that bows) keep puttin in that work! Respect.

    This bend honestly hurt, but now I feel as though I'm that much closer to the infamous 7" bend in IMP's. Baby steps I guess...

    Back to bending since the Arnold was cancelled. I warmed up with some assorted drill rod (0.25" & 0.265"), bolts (G8), and nails (60d and very hard 60d galv) and then decided to take a swing at a red nail (first vid) under cert conditions (single IMPs, no rubber bands, <60s). I was pleased with the result. I was feeling pretty good, so I decided to finish a mutant G2 that ate my lunch in my last session and then go after a 70d nail (second vid) from @Stanley sallee. Successes. Might be time to email IronMind.

    Filed Megalodon gripper just arrived from cannon with 6 pre-marked ratings: 220, 210, 200, 185, 175, 165 and I can eyeball in between ratings. Just in time for training this weekend! I gotta send him 2 more adjustables (Aaron C made from a hard grand elite and Pro spring) and some other regular heavy grippers to rate this weekend. Its so on................When I said whatever it takes, I meant whatever it takes. I am all in this time.

    Not the cleanest bend, but I made pretty short work of it. I think you can see what I was talking about on the kink, my hands are buried in my chest actually pulling in at the start.

    Adam and Tanner -- you guys should both be focused on the North American Grip Sport Championships before King Kong anyway.... Regarding King Kong, I can announce two of the four events now: the One-Hand Flask and the Little Big Horn (six inch lift). The other two will be announced soon. There's a reason why I'm not announcing them yet. I hope everyone can respect this and be patient just a little bit longer.

    Finally got the package! 😃 Lots of SUPER bad bars in this box! I couldn’t help myself... knowing I’ve never bent a 12.9 class, I tried one straight out of the package anyways.. to no avail! 🤪 this is a bend I’d like to get one day. I’m still not in top form, but the best I’ve ever done on a 12.9 is a decent smile. Today was barely a wobble! love the stickers as well Jan! Already put a set on the garage fridge! also, for those paying attention, this package was hell getting to me! Jan had to send it TWICE because the post office (or delivery man rather) in my one horse town dropped the ball on multiple counts, and then sent it back to Germany. A bit of a long story, but the delivery driver did indeed end up losing his job. But not just due to this package.. he apparently not only had multiple incidences of the same phenomenon on his route, but also many packages that never showed up at all throughout the neighborhood. So he was a bit of a reoccurring problem. anyways, much thanks Jan! Got some serious steel to play with here!

    I've been gone a while but I'm pulling all of these orders from the FBBC website. Hopefully it's accurate. These were over a few workouts a few weeks ago. Frequency has been down due to a finger hematoma type thing. Hoping to push the limits of short bar even further soon. Fast forward to about 5 minutes in each if you don't want to watch the wrappings. MY audio quality is absolutely horrible because I'm using a laptop camera and I am sorry for that. Anyone have any better cheap suggestions? I don't use my phone because I want the music to play and I'm too dumb to figure out how to do both simultaneously. The bends leading up to this are on my channel. Some I was 1000% talking shiite to Tommy Jennings. I still have some work to do on the G8 but I've never seen you do a 5" Edgin. Who's best under 200 pounds?.
