    I bent a 50lb box of 60d nails this morning. 576 nails in 2 hours and 29 minutes. I am beat. I will post more about it later. Here are some pics.

    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.

    I don't believe in super heroes at all. The guy does train but unorthodox. He changes tyres for a living and is a mechanic. He just tries to do them in a way which challenge him most. One of my friends who is into AW found him. He took his car into the garage he works in and saw this man lifting a small car like this at 33 seconds. Did I meet him? No. Whenever I was with Larry and Devon he wasn't there. But, I heard he has super strong grip and he will come to my place on this coming Friday to test his grip. I also have heard he has big hands. Let's see. Edit: Fixed spelling, lifting a small car not Living a small car

    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.

    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!?

    Stephen is blitzing through these grippers. I hope the MM6 is the same way. Time to join this hallowed ground as the 11th member!

    The final one will be this Sunday. I might keep it going for a few more weeks, or at least until the end of August just to allay any schedule/calendar anomalies. But this weekend will be the final official bend/attempt, to mark the culmination of ten years. Don's feats are pretty incredible. Beyond incredible in a lot of ways!

    Ha. Then you are in for a treat down the road. I'm convinced we are capable of well beyond what has been done (as you yourself are proving).

    Planks. Bastard in IMPs. Just wanted to get something bent...right index is jacked. Its ripped underneath a callous. I may have to remove the whole thing. Regardless...its in a very inconvenient place for bending. In better news...palm tear is mending. Sooo...not really a workout today...just greasing the groove.

    This final (red) nail in the coffin has to be coming up soon? Pretty neat that the conclusion of this and the @Donc101 60D feat are happening so close together.

    Adam is a thinking gripster. Hard to go wrong following his approach with appropriate loading. I'm not a time under tension or repetition fan. 5 is high rep for me on grip - more singles than anything - working up to a max. For Axle use the power rack or boxes to do more without a lot of low back loading. I'm a believer that every muscle from the elbow down is critical to strong hands. I still think wrist curls. reverse wrist curls and levering are the key in the beginning - maybe more important than anything else at the start. A lot of grip is technique - way more than most people think - that and learning to recruit muscles better.

    Glute bridges Bw squats. Plank. (1) Red in 2/3 IMPs. Red in 1/2 IMPs. "Q" 0-1 DR @ 8 3/8" in IMPs. Took things slow...beat up. Improved my interlock crush by adjusting the nail end placement. More direct now. Small session...but solid.

"Q" 0-1 DR @ 8 3/8 in IMPs. Took it slow...definitely beat up. Cool that it wasn't very hard feeling this beat. Bastard in 2/3 IMPs. Shocking easy. Bitch melted.

    That's a nail every 15.6 seconds. I was wondering how you'd have time to wrap and tally. Great support network and bending community out there.

    I have the Vikn coming so I'll see here soon. I've been going clean hands on my IM Axle lately with good results - but I keep it cleaned down bare as well. I do use chalk on Gracie and my Hex block and Blobs. So far nothing I have found beats "the bucket" that is just every chalk I empty out of climbing chalk bags - mostly Metolius Super Chalk - Black Diamond and Gorilla stuff with a few oddball chalk balls etc. Every WR etc set at Gripmas over the years used the bucket. I'll continue to experiment - it's just something I like to play with - as much for climbing as for grip.

    Built a platform for wheelchair bound father-in-law yesterday. Threw my back out. Body aches. Probably should rest. Ha. Shoulders funny...so long bar is out. I decided to work the mental aspect (light with minwraps). Bw squats. Glute bridges. Red in 2/3 IMPs. Damn my index finger is healing slow. Red in 1/2 IMPs...x 10. Felt pretty good...except for index finger. Opened a tear in my right palm also. Down the road, I see doing this in 1/4 wraps (36s). No timeline on it...just another thing on the to-do list. Shoulders are tweaked...gonna wait till Wednesday to attack the R.

    Great training weekend. Saturday 8/8/20 Went to Tim Butlers for a training session. Messed around with Pinch, thick bar, grippers and sledges but the only thing which was really on was thick bar which is great because today is my scheduled thick bar day anyway. The highlights were hitting a huge PR on my super slick and unseasoned 2.5" Crusher at 164 lbs. That is an all time PR on my handle and not just post surgery so I am stoked. I might have had a little more in me but next up I went for Tim's 152lb Inch Shalaney Dumbbell with a 2.5” thick handle (little thicker than the real inch) and got it which is awesome cause its the heaviest inch style dumbbell I have ever lifted. Videos below. Today 8/9/20 Got to the gym late. Only had an hr until close so I had to move fast. Got home at almost midnight last night so I got a slow start to the day. Deadlifts 4 warm ups 315 lbs - 2x 355 lbs - 2x 395 lbs - 2x 435 lbs - 2x. nice. Best deadlifts session in a while. Making progress towards that 500 lb goal for year end. Stiff Leg Deadlifts 225 lbs - 10x. Just wanted some volume and something less taxing Lat Pulldowns 150 lbs - 10x 170 lbs - 10x 190 lbs - 10x Close Grip Cable Rows 150 lbs - 10x 170 lbs - 10x 190 lbs - 10x

    I hope so but either way Alex beat me to it fair and square! His crush is STRONG! I'd say stronger than mine at the moment. I think I have him beat on kink strength though. 😁 Either way I plan to have the equalizer before the end of August! 🤘

    Glute bridges. Bw squats. Planks. Bastard in IMPs. It's really weird how pain prevents us from accessing our power. I took like 3 hits (with breaks) on this Bastard before my index finger numbed up. After that, I melted it in 4 hits. I could have easily just walked away after any of the first hits...and given up. "Q" 0-1 DR @ 8 3/8" in IMPs. So during my first 50 days, I melted zero Qs in singles. Since then, and including today, I've bent 9 out of 10 in singles. Very defined progress. It amazes me how much I DONT know about bending. Today while working on the Q, i cocked my right wrist about 1/2" towards my chest (on the sweep), and moved it 25 degrees. So much of bending is harnessing power and delivering it at optimum angles. I need to pay even closer attention to my hits...if I want to be top notch bender. So another grease the groove day...but glad i did it.

    No video, but I just tried this and I wanted to grab the last place spot with 83lbs. Think I may be able to get 90 but probably not much more.

    Starting Sunday, I'm going to be starting a new phase in my bending. I'm going to bend one Red or Bastard only on Sun-Wed. And that's just to keep the mental aspect up. My body and simply isn't keeping up with my desire so these 4 days will typify my "back-off" phase. Thursday, Friday and Saturday are still fair game for damaging myself. Red in 2/3 IMPs. Red in 1/2 IMPs. Red in 1/3 IMPs. X 2. Absolutely destroyed the second 1/3 IMPer. Was going to do more but hands tears announced their presence with authority. Its a little frustrating that I'm not quite locked in on my minwrap grab. The slightest change can make a huge difference. That's what training is for right? Felt like it was a nice minwrap session regardless.

    Started running and kettlebells again this week after giving the knee two weeks rest. Also started a modified Keto too. The BJJ weight classes in the org I compete in have a huge jump between my current class (210) and the one below it (185). I walk around most days between 205 and 210 and I have to at least try to get to 195-190 the week of a comp in late October and then cut to 185 for comp day. We'll see. IBJJF also has a 194 weight class which seems much more reasonable but I generally like Grappling Industries better for a number of reasons. Anyway, SS7 Open Class attempt below. Time keeps improving. I gotta get better at the nail snap, it's killing my time. Grapplers class on Wednesday and Open Class again on Sunday.

    Ok, if any of you US benders is interested to make a bulk order just let me know. In the meantime.... Yesterday we had a new entry: Amir Bayour certed the A2 bolt with a nice view in the @Donc101 area. Nice to see how benders get other benders to the cert. Here is the Video:

    Just looking to see how people are feeling about Gripmas this year ? I know there are a couple other comps around that time,( im looking at Dec 5th or 12th).Covid has thrown a wrench in alot of plans but If there is enough interest i will move ahead with some more details.

    Great shoulder and tricep session today. I moved the workout forward one day so lest rest from my bench session cause I’m going to a grip training session at Tim butlers place tomorrow but still felt strong Seated 1 Arm DB Shoulder Press 3 warm ups 80 lbs.- 2x each arm 90 lbs - 2x each arm 100 lbs - 2x each arm 115 lbs Right arm - 2x. Nice!/105 lbs Left - 1x, 2x. There is definitely a sweet spot to hold the DB left with the bad wrist and I didn’t hit it first time so I reset and got a double after the single 95 lbs - 9x right and 5x left note - huge improvement right and similar to last week left but less rest time from bench. Less rest obviously effecting the bad left wrist more. Gym only has up to 120 lb DBs Seated DB Laterals 20 lb DBs - 10x 25 lb DBs - 10x 30 lb DBs - 10x Machine Rear Laterals 135 lbs - 3 sets of 10x Single Arm Machine Triceps Extensions 1 warm up 140 lbs - 4 sets of 10x each arm Note - strength definitely on the raise. Got some goals for tomorrow’s grip session and i plan on taking video. Let’s go!

    Really cool idea! I'll be jumping in here soon with a submission. Tried strict curl for the first time ever yesterday, and it was a definite disappointment (weak). But, with some reps in, I think it'll improve.
