  1. I've been hitting a lot of new feats lately. Getting stronger. Finally snatched a 50lb blob after a few years of trying. And did a sloppy combo feat of 174lb inch replica + 50lb blob curl by the face.

  3. Thank you for this Jan! also, apologies to everyone for the hiatus. I’ve been intentionally avoiding the bending forum.. I know that if I stay in the mix I’ll end up back bending heavily and other training would fall by the wayside. I can’t even begin to relay how hard it has been to fight the urge to bend DO.. now that I’m stronger across the chest and front delts than ever before, I tend to drool thinking about what’s possible for me to bend DO now.

  6. It seems it is a pain keeping track of your workouts without writing stuff down, so I'll start a new log for that reason. Atm I'm doing a lot of pinch work with a knurled block I made. And I also recently made a 2" handle with an offset bar. A Holle dumbbell essentially but a smaller diameter. I also use a threaded bar for the weights on this so I can lock them tight. So it behaves like a solid dumbbell along with a offset handle, it's very taxing and difficult to lift. So I'll use that, the block, and another Holle dumbbell I have with 62.8mm diameter.

  7. Couldn't agree more. Bending to light stuff for volume will not make you much stronger at bending. It might give you better endurance, better pain tolerance and tougher skin (if you use less wrapping) but to be able to bend harder stuff you need to bend increasingly harder stuff.

  14. Drill rod is great, it really fights back throughout the entire bend. I like to describe it to people that steel is rated to 30º, but that after the initial kink CRS often "gives up" a bit and us usually easier on the crush. In contrast, if a piece of drill rod is rated 500 lbs it stays 500 lbs through the kink, the sweep, and the crush. It ends up being an exhausting fight. The same day I bent my first Red Nail I also bent a few pieces of 19/64 x 7" drill rod and the Red Nail was a 30 second cakewalk in comparison. It doesn't have to be horrendously expensive either. I get my drill rod f

  15. It's a great tool. Have had mine for awhile but haven't used it much due to gripper obsession. Now I'll really give it a go. No, me neither. I made that one for a few reasons. I'll probably never own an axle but I wanted something that would benefit it should I want to compete down the road. It's the same mechanics just even more difficult, so I think it will be a great tool for that. Also the carry over from axle to grippers should anecdotally be good. And I would say that while the bigger diameter taxes the thumbs more, the smaller one taxes fingers and wrist considerably more, in

  19. If my goal was a specific length of bar (let's use the Red Nail for example), I'd choose the 15 pieces of Drill Rod in a heart beat. If my goal was a 6" bar that was a LOT harder than a 60D, then I'd choose the 15 pieces of Drill Rod every time.

  20. Thank you my friend. Yes its a good amount of weight but also that is the easiest setting to lift on that handle, however The large diameter plates and the spinlock collars being drum tight gives it a lot of rotation though so its not easy either.

  24. Your next step might be to try some 1/4” square CRS and see how it feels. If you do well there you can probably just buy M and N drill rod, but if it’s very hard you could pick up the I and L too. Roughly, 1/4x7” CRS will usually calibrate around 275 pounds. According to some theoretical numbers I have (that correspond well to the ratings people have done), I calibrates around 310, J around 330, K 340, L 380 (about like a 1/4x6 grade 5), M 400, N 420 (about the same as a 1/4x6 grade 8), and 5/16x7 CRS around 450. (Obviously steel varies.) If you asked my opinion, and I don’t know why

  30. You can use different wrapping for progression as well. That's how I did. Started double wrapping instead, then after I got stronger at that I was able to bend a red in singles. First I couldn't even bend it in doubles. Of course you don't need to single or double wrap, you can do everything in between that if you want as well just by cutting up your own pads in different sizes.

  37. Yeah, its such a jungle. And unfortunately there is alot of good shoes that you can't get here in Sweden. The jump I made from Kerckhaert TDR to SSP and Meister was huge. If you want to shop shoes here in Sweden I would recommend TDR or/and Kings Steel DR to start with. I bent TDR size 2, 1 and 0 first time I tried horseshoe. I have bend TDR size 000 also, but it's very tiny and not to much fun to bend. Kings Steel DR is really easy shoe. Like I said, the jump from there is big. There might be some good shoes inbetween, but I have not found them. Meister D7 and SSP#3 was my next sh

  41. You might find this helpful (or not, not sure if anyone linked it on the first page): http://www.fatbastardbarbellco.com/Benders_Bag_Road_to_Bag_Screenshot.PNG FBBC’s Road to... bag uses big jumps until the end of the line, where you do L, M, and N as very small incremental jumps before going on to the Bastard. I think that’s very reasonable. What are you bending now? What’s an easy bend and what’s just out of reach?
