    It's been a good couple of weeks and I have been able to check off couple of feats of my bucket list. Sorry for blowing my own trumpet, but right now everything is going in to the right direction. Air Transfer with an Inch https://youtu.be/ocSYPyJP8yg Lapped and "incline" pressed two Thomas Inch Dumbbells. Not something I'd call an incline, but the lapping part is the hard one. https://youtu.be/h2Gdy6iWt_A Lifted my Half 60kg York Blob + Thomas Inch at the same time https://youtu.be/Wmi0IKs0FEg Lifted our "Shiny" without tilting which is 92.5kg/204lbs Dumbbell with and 60.5mm/2 3/8 handle https://youtu.be/I5V14zR-pfw Also I was randomly drug tested at my home yesterday. Couldn't have happened any better time as I'm at the peak of my strength. Oh well even getting suprise tested at the peak strength won't be enough for some peopme. I've cleaned the Inch couple of times but never pressed it so that's something I'll do soon. Clean from last year below I'll have 3 weeks or so before I start my prep for King Kong, and I'll do my best to lift my 145lbs (72.3lbs) Half York Blob before the prep.

    The misc forum was taken away so here are a few updated pics. Complete power rack and gripper caddy among other things. Mounted a TV on a nice swivel and tilting/telescoping mount from harbor freight. Only 13.00 highly recommended. Have a Texas power bar on order and always looking out for plates. Hoping by fall I have almost all I need.

    Bastard was from 7/23. Gold from 7/26. Gold video is VERY NSFW. If you're new and confused by my commentary then listen to my podcast episode @Beyond the Bend Podcast! It was shared in his thread. Honestly felt like crap on 7/26. This was the lone good bend. It'll go down in single leathers soon (maybe next workout) but I'm still a little ways off of IMPs, especially since mine are brand new. Enjoy!

    Great job everybody! Big shout out's to Tim Butler putting up impressive numbers after his hard work losing body fat- which is not easy to do. Luke, who had better numbers this contest vs. 2019 GSI championship in SB, NN and Euro and was battling a pulley injury! Jason, who is a gripforce of nature, putting up great numbers then after contest double inch lift! Last, but not least ,the GOAT Jedd- who has had an incredible run(over 15 years and counting) and keeps showing up and winning.

    Thank you @KRC for the stock! This was all from him. Can't quite tell if this shiny square stock is easier than the current batch. Feels like it might be by a hair. Definitely not as easy as the 590ish stuff way back in the day. KOAB stock is the easy batch from 2017. Feels like 650ish at 7". As usual, NSFW. The Mag KOAB was closer than I'd like it to have been. Should have had a stop watch going because I had a solid minute left when I thought I was out of time and my last hit was outside of 5 minutes (after measuring) and that made it a no doubter. An unusual mental error from me. Still was at 2" IMO but I'm curious other opinions. Also if anyone has any of this stock left I'd love to buy it from you or trade for it. I definitely want to make a run at the Insane KOAB! There's much more in the tank on the Tsar stock. Next time a big should be easy, huge might be there too.

    OK, here we go.... Dear steel bending gentleman, we have a new Cert in the books. Very happy to have this bend on the list. It was one of the reasons for me to create this cert: see the best bends possible. It is one of the best bends in steel bending history - in my opinion it´s probably the best one till now. Alexander Klimovich could bend the 12.9 bolt today. This is a huge bend only a few will understand. Huge Congrats to Alexander. The list was updated: https://www.horrido-bending.com/cert-list And here is the Video (unfortunatley not the best video because of sun and shadow games, but make sure to watch it on the computer with bright light and you can see everything!) Maybe we will see another 12.9 cert in the near future from also one of the best benders from the other side of the world!? Or can anyone bend this bolt shorter? Who knows!?

    Finally getting around to doing a bit more of a write up. My hands finally almost healed too. I first heard about this challenge in November of 2019. John Beatty sent me a set of all of the issues of his Strong Magazine. A great magazine. In one issue there was an interview with Dave Morton, who bent the 100 Red Nails in 2005. He said he was planning to do the Devil’s Challenge. I had never heard of this. I messaged John and he said he came up with the challenge as the next step harder than bending 100 Red Nails. However, no one had still ever done it. John also said he came up with a t-shirt and certificate to give to anyone who completed the challenge. The shirt had an old school devil with a thin mustache smiling and winking. It said “Diabolically Strong”. My plan for training was similar to my training for the 100 Reds. Gradually ramp up but never getting to more than 33. I was going to do 22 2 weeks before the challenge date and 33 1 week out. I did the 22 and my hands took quite a beating. The next week, when I was supposed to do 33, I felt like shit and just did not have it in me. I could only muster 10. I was not 100% confident I would be able to do the 66 because training did not go perfectly as planned. I also was nervous because the Bastards I bought for the challenge were a very tough batch and bent similar to drill rod with the crush being much tougher than a normal 6” Bastard. I had set July 3 as the date because my work was closed for the 4th of July. It was supposed to be very hot. Thus, I decided to wake up early and do it first thing in the morning. Hands took a beating, but I was able to make it through the 66 fairly well. I was not maxed out as far as volume. About 45 minutes after I was done my body crashed. I had been riding my adrenaline. I layed down and woke up 3 hours later feeling like I had been in a coma. My arms, hands, wrists, back and core were very sore for multiple days. Hands took a long time to completely heal. Also, lots of abrasions and almost like carpet burns on my chest from my hands constantly rubbing on my chest. The challenge was much harder than 100 Reds. I think 60 Gold Nails braced would be much harder for most people than 66 6” Bastards double overhand. However, for me short braced bending is my strongest form of bending right now and the Devil’s Challenge was much harder for me than the 60 Golds. I love these epic, long steel bending endurance challenges as they push you to the limit physically and especially mentally. Thanks for checking this out everyone. Don Cummings

    Today was a good day! I actually failed the 6" 10.9 on my first attempt on time. Came back for the second try and SMASHED it. I think the 12.9 will go down soon. My hands were shredded and it was my third bend of the day. The square is the new FBBC square. Feels like upper 600s to low 7s.

    Hey everyone! A newer bender named Cody Christensen started a bending podcast and I was lucky enough to be his first guest! This is all about my experience in bending and a few bonus mentions of my feud with Randall Strossen and Ironmind. If you give it a listen please tell me what you think! I believe he has Clay Edgin, @Donc101, and @Horrido on his upcoming guest list. @Tommy J. he said you have a message in your inbox! https://open.spotify.com/episode/5QF2fYeXNJUwxgCGwWEttf?si=UkRv22zpQv2E3sX_QEXD8Q&fbclid=IwAR0XEXRMxzjpQDYpwwIwWx8JhP-BvdyrGllLHzu17qz2m29GK5I5w9H9CJY

    Recently been seeing a ton of stuff on YT and IG about strict curl so I thought it would be fun to do a grip style online comp here. I will send a FIFTY DOLLAR amazon gift card to the winner just so we will have some sure competition! So competition opens up on Monday July 27th and we will close Monday August 31st, post your videos as often as you want from now until then on this thread, I will post the current leader and weight to beat on Monday of every week and then the winner on September 1st. Here are the rules I came up with from researching strict curl comp rules. I was on the fence about back of the head coming off the wall but rules I found online allowed it so we will too. No weight classes/ Heaviest axle strict curl wins IM axle or equivalent required/ Rogue axle or even a DIY is allowable as long as specs are the same = 2"diameter and 7 feet long No collars. Balance will come into play as long as the weight doesn't fall off it will pass. Arms and Legs must be fully extended before you start the lift. Heels must be no further than 12" from wall Upper back/butt must stay in contact with wall during both up and down portion of lift Feet may go as wide as you want as long as heels stay within 12" of wall elbows and head may come off wall Do the math of your loaded bar on camera (especially if it's DIY!) and state that this video is for the grip board strict curl comp so we know it's a recent vid. I don't need to see you actually weigh anything we're on the honor system. Any questions or for anything I may have missed or need to be clarified please send me a message. Have fun, let's police each other and I hope to see some monster posts on here and even if you don't have a chance at winning post your pr's it will be fun to see them. Let's see who the strongest current active gripboard member is on the Axle Strict Curl. Here's mine from today with a demo setup..

    Here is a detailed write-up of the feat: I have been wanting to bend a whole 50lb box of 60d nails ever since I read about John Brookfield doing it. There is not tons of information out there about when John did it. I emailed him and asked about his feat. He responded and said lets talk on the phone. I had a great 30 minute conversation with him. Very nice guy. He bent a 50lb box on 3 different occasions. The first was at a Highlands Game competition is Kentucky. The other 2 times were in a Walmart. He was set up and just bending as people walked by. That would have been great to see. He said the boxes had around 525 nails. He said none of his feats were recorded. He did not have exact times they took. They were not recognized as official records. He wore golfers gloves and used some type of padding on the nails themselves too. He seemed excited that I was going to attempt his feat and encouraged me. I did the training similar to how I trained for my other big endurance feats. I ramped up the number of bends I did each week, topping out at about 50% of feat day. I did 50 then the next week 125 then the next week 250. The 250 tore my hands, which I was happy with because my hands then healed with good callouses. The 250 was done 9 days before the scheduled feat day. While I was training, I realized that shoulder endurance would be critical. Thus, the couple of weeks before the feat I did high rep Indian club work and other shoulder work to build up endurance. Amir Bayour and Chris Stilwell came over to help. We worked together like an assembly line. It was very efficient and helped me bend faster. Amir would put the new nails in a set of wraps. We had 4 sets of leather pads pre-wrapped so he could just stick the nail in the pads. Chris would re-wrap as necessary. Chris also measured all nails to make sure they were within 2 inches and kept track of how many nails I had bent on a pad of paper. Amir’s girlfriend, Kelly, took tons of great photos. My wife and kids also checked out the action. My 3 year old daughter kept laughing at me and saying I looked like Santa Claus because my neck and shirt were covered in chalk and white. The box weighed 51.5 pounds and had 576 nails in it. These were some times that Chris jotted down as we went: 100 Nails in 20 minutes and 59 seconds 273 nails in 1 hour 300 nails in 1 hour and 6 minutes 355 nails in 1 hour and 20 minutes 392 nails in 1 hour and 30 minutes 400 nails in 1 hour and 32 minutes 485 nails in 2 hours 504 nails in 2 hours and 6 minutes 576 nails in 2 hours, 29 minutes and 28 seconds My hands started tearing up at 200 and were pretty bad by the end. Also, friction burns all over my chest and under my chin from my hands rubbing on them. I wore 3 t-shirts to help with this but still got lots of burns. I also shaved, because I learned in training its not good to have all that rubbing pulling facial hair. My hands and forearms got quite a pump. Also, my chest muscles started spasming a bit at the end from all the crushing. My low back got quite fatigued too. My whole body is quite sore today still. After the box was bent, Amir and Chris did some great bending with the Horrido Bending bolts. My bending was done and I just enjoyed watching them bend some tough steel. Thanks for checking out my steel bending feat. Don Cummings

    Actually wasn't feeling 100% this morning, which is why none of these were super fiery. Still got some massive bends! Waiting on Andrew to get me a current count of his 13/32, 27/64, and 7/16 stock so I can keep climbing the ladder of weirdly named steel, haha. Thanks again to @KRC for the Tsar stock. Enjoy!

    I think there’s still a bit of uncertainty about what is and isn’t permitted with the Grab Ball, so I shot this little video. I hope it helps. If anyone still has questions, please let me know.

    Last weekend I had some guys here at home to bend and have a good time. Was a great day. There was 40°C and we had lots of cold drinks and a really fun time. Unfortunatley @camz and @Martin Kotte couldn´t be with us due to family things. No huge bends because of different reasons😆 Daniel @Truman bend a CRS 9mm Bar very fast but got a really deep cut in his index finger at his try to bend a 8.8 bolt. But my good buddy Holger (perhaps his 5th time he bend) had a great day. He could cert the A2 bolt and smashed a CRS 8mm bar in IMP´s which is at red nail level. Very good work. I will force him to bend more and more and to get the red nail cert done in the future. Maybe I will create a little video with the best scenes this week. Here are the two videos and some other impressions:

    Good training day. I did a DHWOG world record attempt for speed bending 3 mid length rated steel bars. David Horne has the record Doing them in 1:08. I did it quite a bit faster today, just need to get it approved. I then attempted and failed bending 2 Gold Nails taped together. Then I bent 125 60d nails in 34 minutes. I just started training to bend a 50lb box of 60ds on August 8. Also, got news that my 60 Golds in one hour and 22 minutes will be recognized as a world record. Great day today. Here are video and some pics.

    First session in a little while. Got a good time on Steel Shredder, but not enough to beat my previous time (I lost some time kinking the Bolt, probably due to a bad wrap job). I also did a 3/4x48 bar and a Huge Bastard in double wraps. Here’s the huge. Bend starts at about 5:10, finished about 6:30. Measure is close but under 2”. Wraps are shaken at the beginning and the end.

    The bold area is why I love this board and this sport. People like you, Mike, with the ability to analyze this data. I never would have picked up on that, and it really is awesome, knowing how bad he's been hurt. Thanks for pointing that out and of course, thank you for the kind words.

    Glute bridges. BW squats. Bastard in IMPs x 24 Yeah well...I wanted to break in some new IMPs, so I wrapped up 6 bastards and it went well. It kept going well so I reused them 3 times. By then I had a number of tears reopening and it was a good place to stop. I dont think I've done this volume before. My body wanted to get sloppy on the last 4 or so. With my heart, I'd probably have to train a long time for an endurance feat.

    Good afternoon GB! This morning I was the first to bend a 6.5" 10.9 Bolt for Horrido's bending site. I'm calling my shot that the 6 will be done before the end of July. Honestly it might be done within a week. Also got a 7.5" Shiny Square from FBBC. I was GASSED (and sweating like a priest at an elementary school) by this point of the workout so it took a little longer than it should have. It was barely inside of 5 minutes depending on where you count my first hit. Let me know what you think!

    I forgot to mention, Chris gave me this great Gold show hammer he made as a congrats gift. The hammer head has a very cool shape that I have not seen before. The head is stamped that it weighs 13 pounds. I am very thankful and grateful for the hammer. Here is a pic of the hammer and Chris, Amir and I in action.

    I think Carl Myerscough has a decent chance to cert the #4. He's 208 cm tall and has done the most impressive gripper closes I've ever seen. Closing a 216# rated GHP9 for two reps with 38 mm block set. With that said, I think he's the only one who is actually close to be able to cert the #4. For the Gold Nail I would say there's at least two guys now, or maybe three who have a chance at it. It's difficult to predict which one is going to happen first but if I really had to bet I would say the gold nail. I think both of them will happen within the near future.

    After max testing log this morning I didn’t think I’d have much left for DO bending so I stuck to braced. Got a 3/4x48 bar - still (and excuse the digression) getting used to sweeping at this length again. I know it’s a factor of how far I can kink it but I have a hard time figuring out if I should brace and pull around or if it’s in position to go straight into the elbow for a crunch sweep. With the short stuff, though, it’s always straight to the pull-through sweep as soon as I can get the smallest degree of kink. This was a 1/2”x14 bar which is a PR for me. Boneyard pic includes a blue nail I snapped to warm up. Video may give you flashbacks involving burpees.

    Really great gym session today. My wrist is feeling so much better. I have had trouble closing 180+ because the wrist has been so bad I couldn’t set grippers that hard but today I blew past it.

    “Take you back” Back when I lived in the actual city of Brotherly Love, I lived about 500 meters from the Phillies baseball stadium. Back then, on my off days, I would ride my bicycle from our row home in South Philly, through the city, to get to my BJJ school downtown. It was three miles of pure level riding. The only drawback was all the stops you would have to make. i would ride through the famed Philly Italian Market. [made even more famous in the movie Rocky.] The peddlers at the Market still sell the vegetables and fruits out of these small stands that filter out into the streets making the road narrow enough to be considered a alley street). Yes they still burn the wooden boxes for heat in the winter there just like in Rocky. That was not a Hollywood idea. Meanwhile, just further north there were “those guys” who would pop open their car trunk and it would be fulled with expensive shoes for sale at “steal prices”. Sometimes it was watches; other times it was perfumes for sale. I bet back in 1984 you could have gotten a Cabbage Page Kid doll there too! They were steal deal prices probably because they were already stollen! Well, the reason for that backstory is today I was one of those shady vendors! The difference was I was not offering “steals” - instead I was bending steel. I was bending short bars in the parking lot of a big multi use - yet old — industrial warehouse in north Philadelphia. It is where my kid does gymnastics. so after I got my son Liam settled in I went outside to call The Ambassador. facetime did not workout so it was an audio co-bending session. between the heat, not being able to get my interior car light to turn off, and forgetting my chalk, it was a real rushed session. I wish I could say that it was the cops who broke up the Tailgate Party, but the reality is I am way out of shape and I only got a wobble out of a 17/64 drill rod While the work might have been minimal compared to some, at least not one person stopped me or bothered me. I also forgot my clamps so wrapping was slow, and the humidity is soooooo high. In hindsight, I should have just borrowed some chalk from the gymnastics school. going to leave chalk and a set on clamps in the car from now on. it took longer to write this then it did to bend it . i did not do DU this week because I have a real sharp pain in both wrist in the pictured area. I have been told DU can aggravate that area of the wrist. Any second opinions?

    Bw squats. Red in IMPs. Red in 2/3 IMPs. Red in 1/2 IMPs. FBBC Shiny in 1.5/1 IMPs. Used the 1.5s from 10-80 degrees. Would have been nicer to kill the whole thing in singles..but all in good time. Bastard in IMPs. Wanted to feel powerful again after fighting that shiny. I know I've made good progress...but I'm still impatient. Acccck. Edit: this just arrived...woot!

    The MM4 just had a wild trip back from Russia. David Shamey shipped it to CPW on 4/4/20. It JUST arrived today. That's 108 days in transit! All due to Covid19 delays. Now it's headed to Stephen Anderson where I believe it will get crushed as a "welcome home". Crush it Stephen!

    Got some new steel from @Fist of Fury a couple of days ago. I'm really happy about finishing this bar, cause the crush is really hard for me on square HRS. These are a little bit easier then the HRS I have encountered here in Sweden. Also did a 130kg GBI bar in IMP some days back.

    Finlands national anti doping organization does the the testing, but this was because of pull up competition (World Pull Up Organization). I was the first person to hit over 200kg total weight (bw+added weight) in their competition with quite strict rules. Even for most of the grip competition in Finland you will need sign anti-doping contract. For example finnish grip nationals are under World Heavy Events Organization for which you will need a contract with SUEK (aka. National subsection of WADA) I've been tested twice in grip competition twice form urine and once from blood as well. Same goes for my strongman and powerlifting competition. If you want to run a federation with any recognition from the government or sponsors you'll need to be part of SUEK (WADA) basically. Even for the Finlands Strongest Man competition you'll need a contract and you will be tested in and out of competition. They started demanding anti-doping contracts with SUEK (WADA) since 2017 which obviously changed up the roster a bit 😅 Right now I could be tested due to multiple different strength sports I compete in, but for this one I was named by World Pull Up Organization.

    Kink with singles and crush with dbl wraps. I don't have much FBBC bars, so expensive to order here 😬. Was never "good" with shorter than 7" bars. 7" or 8" was my favorite and also I like to bend singles or IMP's. Maybe also like pain a little bit. 😁 Keep up the good work and maybe you guys see my comeback for the last time! 😅

    Would like to share this as I think some might enjoy doing them. Real benefits is keeping legs fairly straight not bent. Be careful if trying out for first couple of times but great for wrist, triceps and core. Ideally, I would use lighter for work sets but only other KB is 26lbs. Thanks.

    A couple more out of the way. Time to keep moving forward. Should have done the hex in singles today but whatever.

    I haven’t posted much recently about King Kong. With the effect that the pandemic has had on everyone’s plans this year, I’ve had trouble finding the motivation to promote the contest. Logistical problems have also arisen, making it a challenge to get necessary equipment in the hands of some King Kong promoters. I think we can all agree that so far, 2020 hasn’t been awesome. A couple of people have inquired about whether the contest will be occurring. My answer is “YES”. Due to the multi-venue, multi-country nature of the event, King Kong will go on, with the understanding that it is possible that not all locations may be able to take part. Each country/state/province is issuing its own rules/guidance for sporting events during the pandemic, and we will be encouraging individual promoters to take steps and make decisions as they see fit to ensure a safe experience for all. Regardless of the number of venues and competitors that take part (whether 5 or 25), King Kong will go on. All classes and prizing will remain the same. If you plan to compete and have questions about a particular venue, I encourage you to reach out to the venue promoter directly. Promoters are identified in the first post of this thread. If you have trouble finding contact information, please let me know.
