    Thanks for the plug. Both options are available now in all four of the Spring Color options: Gray, Mill Scale, Battleship, and Gunmetal. As far a YT Videos. I shoot everything with a Canon Rebel in 2560 X 1440 and edit with Kinemaster which is an android app. Kinemaster is a pretty good value and you can get a year subscription for about $40.00. The thing about YT (especially with channels that have lower numbers of subscribers and viewers) is that they dial down the video quality and size. Their newest format (VP9) is actually a smaller file size and better quality, but you can't get it without having a certain number of subscribers because the upload times take FOREVER. I just upload in the highest quality I can because I know I'm going to lose some after YT processes it. Your audio sounds good and is very clear. I always think my audio sounds bad. For arc shots I use a Neutral density filter on the camera and play with the settings. I still can't get a great arc shots because the bright arc compared to the dim area surrounding it messes with the camera's brain. The guys that know how to do it right won't really share either. I will probably make more videos one day. Just need to think of something to make.

    I'm counting it as a training PR. I'll be working on pausing at the top for @acorn 's comp.

    So I would like to do a series of grip equipment review videos. Since I am not an elite grip athlete and no one is going to learn anything about grip by watching me lift, this might be my best way to share some grip enthusiasm with people who maybe looking for it. Here is a first attempt utilizing Mr. Juncker’s Blob and Blockweight trainers. I quickly realized I don’t know how to make equipment review videos. So please help me out. What do you think is required or makes a good review video? training update: I am still trying to train but limited by nagging physical setbacks. I haven’t done anything that would be worth logging or would look like structured training. I hope to get back together someday.

    Today was supposed to me 2 inch axle day, but I felt more like using the 2 3/8 inch. I went with my gut and scored some PRs. I actually prefer the 2 3/8 version 210x10 260x8 270x6 280x5 320 for timed hold (NEW PR) 330 (just missed) arm assassin thumb blaster 140x10 185x10 195x6 70 pound kettle bell swings for some strength/cardio 70x25 70x25 70x25 70x25 320 timed hold miss at 330. Think I would have had it had I not done so many heavy high rep sets previously

    Yep. Including pinch training for widths we find challenging is helpful.

    I use both Sorinex and Vikn. The Vikn works best on my bare steel and aluminum implements and the Sorinex is better on this painted bar. I'm endlessly experimenting with all the chalk combinations - I'm not certain if I'm obsessive compulsive or just a huge grip nerd.

    I also prefer the 2 inch bar. Feels great. Thin pinch seems harder than wide because you get less skin stretch aiding in friction to keep the bar in your hands. Thin pinch seems like a better indicator of pinch strength than wide IMO. Some may feel otherwise.

    2 finger surprised me. Had I known I was that close, I would have tried it at beginning of workout instead of the end. Got close on a couple clean attempts.

    Good stuff Joe! I like to work up to my heavy single or PR attempt first and then drop down for my rep work and/or holds. That way I get all the work in, but it doesn't affect my max attempts.

    “Wut? I gotta get me something in the Battleship Spring color!” Thank you for the informative reply. And to your above statement, one of my biggest legit fears is that I will die before I get to realize all my ideas.

    Don’t be so sure! You are looking really strong. Man I ran out of Sorinex chalk. Now I’m using VIKN chalk, personally I like it even more. Have you used it?

    Haha nothing secret or new. Based on the pipe fitting tool Joe posted in the arm wrestling forum not long ago. Started welding some scraps together and found the neck too thick so I welded in a tube where I wanted my thumb to sit. Monday March 25, 2019 Easy 4km run + cooldown run/walk with the boys. Also did this at the end of my 24hr fast. These weekly fasts are getting easier.

    I have the strongman belt from Spudinc. It's a ratchet style belt and assuming you are in the ballpark with the size you buy, you can get it as tight as you want.

    I got an Elitefts belt 10 years ago, have beat it, thrown it, used it, kept it outside in my shed year round and it is still practically like new. Great price too. Like @king crusher said, get a good belt that it is the correct size and it will last you forever.
