  1. I can definitely do better but I just wanted to contribute to the topic. First attempt, one take.

  2. I thought no one would ask. So thank you! yes, I have. Many times. Although due to past legal issues, I was not able to leave the state (legally) for some years. So as a result, all of my tournaments have been in Texas. Those issues are settled, and I am free to travel now. I mostly kept that to myself over the years. But it is what it is. And now you know. I started pulling in 2011 after hooking up with PK and Eric Milfeld. At the time I was mainly interested in grip, but after PK insisting he and I pull, I obliged, and beat him on both arms that first day. During that time frame Pa

  3. DO Bending: 2x7mm nails 7" in doubles easy Horrido 10.9 bolt prekinked 10 degrees to over 90 degrees. Got stuck at the sweep as most steel lately. Me loosing weight havent done wonders for my crush. Need to learn the sweep better DO. Happy with the progress. 8mm rebar 10" singles pritty easy. Ironmind Gold Nail no movement, but! I feel I can get it into a position where I am 80-85% strong. With some training at longer bars I am sure I'll have it soon in doubles.

  5. Warmup 7mm x 7" nail x 3: Done in 3/4 cordura. Easy bends but it flared up my index knuckle injury again! Training 8mm x 7" hard stainless from @Slippery Pete to 95 degrees DO. This was a surprise since I thought my DO bending had gotten weaker. Now I know my weak spot lies in the sweep and crush. Finished off with some wrist levers

  7. Last days were double underhand bends. First a new hard and very short bend of Josh Goldthorp with an A2 at 4". And then a monumental DU bend from Delmar Carter again! The 8.8 bolt at 6" was bent double underhand. Just a fantastic bend! Watch it here:

  10. Yea he is! One of the best! I speak as a personal close friend that the man would give you the shirt off his back and is generous to all. Very respectful and truly loves all things strength and is an ambassador to grip. Not trying to blow smoke but I am very happy to call him my friend.

  11. Apologies again my friend. I actually was reading and searching the thread and as you replied I've found it in the first page. What happened was I usually reply someone who replied to me/quoted me. When I did that it took me to half of the next page as my reply was there. Hence me not seeing it. Perfect! Message me on IG and we will work something good out. Bader always make his friends happy 😅

  12. True, you never said that about Robbie. I apologize for that one. I was being a little bit facetious with that one. However, about the side pulling analogy. I posted that video as a response to your own assessment on how you’d do against SB which you had previously based on your performance while side pulling Hutchings. So I wouldn’t say I was contradicting myself on that one. Btw don’t take anything I say with any serious offense. This is just friendly back and forth banter. I’d still let you sleep in my house and share beers with you any day of the week. I’m sure you’d do

  13. Really unfortunate to take an already niche sport and separate it into so many organizations just to make everything more difficult. I just wanna see the strongest guys compete idc about regions or countries or who has the best marketing.

  14. Hello fellow gripsters! Just felt like sharing this with the forum. Recently having picked up my GHP Level 7,8,9 and 10 (which are all incredibly amazing grippers from all standpoints by the way) from German customs, I noticed that the GHP10 is especially wide compared to all my other grippers. That's what the measurements ended up being: Incredibly enough, it's exactly 80 mm wide. Moreover, the RGC Rating of this Gripper is an amazing 126.6 kg, which is about 279 lbs! I beliebe that this gripper is probably right there on the very edge of what's humanely possible to close from

  15. I broke through a major volume plateau this week: Bench Working sets 280 lbs - 4 triples 330 lbs - been failing this for my 5th set fatigued single and I absolutely smoked it. 235 lbs - 13 reps I got a vid of the 330 I will post later

  16. Ermes VS Matt I am rooting for Ermes and I think Ermes will take this easy. I can be wrong as Matt Mask was training with Devon and he is also big guy. But man what I saw from Ermes is really awesome. I'd say Ermes.

  19. @Tommy J. Just curious, have you competed in armwrestling or do you just train it? What's your "story of armwrestling"? Hope you get a match with any of them, would be very fun too see!

  21. This is all very exciting! Give Tommy the chance, Bader! I don’t think you will regret it! It will be good for grip, GB and arm wrestling and would love to see Tommy do some damage to SB if he could.

  25. One thing that is an absolute shame these days is that there no longer exists any federation, championships or tournament where truly all the best in the world meet to compete. 12-15 years ago, the best place to settle who was actually the best in the world was the Nimeroff world cup, without question. Up until a few years ago I would say Zloty. But since all members of WAF are instantly banned if they compete at Zloty since 2018, most of the competition is no longer there. WAF has split and now we have another world organization, IFA. And on top of that, most of the elite from the US are lock

  26. No SB did beat Larry left hand and so did Alex. But Larry too did beat SB and Alex also. All in practice though nothing is in a comp. Something like Ermes beating Matt Mask after their WAL fight in practice. Matt easily won (I think Ermes is winning the next fight in Istanbul, IMO) but Ermes in practice beat him. If you want to ask me what do I think of Larry VS MMT left hand? To be honest I think Larry will easily win now. MMT claims to be in the best shape of his life, but I doubt that.

  29. True but you see what the TV is showing. What happened was SB first left hand match was with MMT. Then SB went against everyone even Israeli national champ. Few days later when they were fresh, Larry lost (left hand) to Alex SB brother. But yes Larry is very strong. Just not as strong as SB in AW.

  31. Yup. Capitalize on what you got and do it because you love it. Just like grip. No money,no fame .... but by God arm wrestling is one super sport. One of the last bastions of men that arent all about the Politically correct “I’m gonna melt” if you offend me crowds. That is what I truly enjoy about it. You can be a man and be proud to be a man and not worry about a darn thing by being a man! The people in AW are my kinds of people!

  38. Clarification: im talking right* hand. I make no claims about my left even being noteworthy in the conversation. So whatever Texas friend you have that’s got table cred, will be pulling my right hand. I hope not to come off offensive to the Texas friend, either. I don’t see the Texas friend in here talking. Bader gets the credit for putting the Texas friend in the hot seat.

  39. Nice lifts man! Haha, you will fell those deadlift reps for a week. Is the grip club more structured or just you and a friend training together? Sounds great either way!

  40. There were two in the last Top 8, Ongarbaev and Dimitri Trubin. In WAF and Zloty there is Aktaev, Morozov, Nurdaulet and etc. Ever heard of Shardara? Basically a town of only arm wrestlers, weightlifters, powerlifters and kokpar players. There are hundreds that are part of the Kazakh national team but I’m not sure of exactly how much funding the armwrestlers get. I’m sure it’s not distributed equally for all the members of their national team. But I’m sure the ones at the top receive good money by Kazakh standards.

  43. If you bend DO with wrist torque you should be more than capable of doing it reverse and DU since radial deviation is weaker than ulnar deviation. DO is not really a torque style of bending it's more about compression as far as the hands are concerned. Once you grasp that concept and get a feeling for it you will progress fast. You're correct about the waist level, bar needs to be above waist level at all times in unbraced bending. Unless the rules states something else. Try moving the pads out a bit further toward the ends if the bar feels too small for reverse bending.

  44. 30 May 2021 Tanner Merkle snd I have hit this about every 2-3 weeks since beginning of March and distance is increased every session. On Sunday we took 5 trips and got over 50 feet each several times. We were joined this week by Stephen Anderson, Tommy Jennings JR and David Troutt- it was a rowdy lifting session this was David’s first chance to hit these abs he easily got 25 ft several times 💪💪💪
