Buccos1 Posted August 13, 2013 Share Posted August 13, 2013 I've been keeping a log on Bender's Battlefield for a few years. The sites been down for a few days, so I figured what better time than now to start a log here!? Some background info: Age: 39 Height: 5'9" Weight: 195 I've been weight training for 27 years and competing in powerlifting for seven, having done about 20 meets. I started competing as a 242 (weighed 235) then decided to drop some weight, and cut down to under 200lbs. I've been about 195 for close to two years now. I also figured I'd be a lot more competitive as a 198er than 220 or 242. I competed in the Beast in the East steelbending championships last summer and took first in the LHW class. I've been bending steel for close to five years, and messing around with grippers for about the same. I recently got more involved in pinch grip and have been working a lot with the Ironmind Hub and the GripTopz, trying to improve my numbers. I'd love to do a grip comp. or two next year! To give a perspective what my levels are (and where I'm trying to go) ... My best numbers in powerlifting (single-ply): Squat - 550 Bench - 440 DL - 550 My best bends/grip: 5.5" Red Nail - IMPs 505lb. x 7" drillrod - IMPs Red Nail (DU) - BBW 5/8 x 21.8" A36 SCF Reg. Plain #000 IM Hub - 57.5 With grippers, I've come within 2-3 mm from closing the COC #2.5 with a MMS. Recently, I got a few GHP grippers and have been doing some work with the GHP5, which has been great. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
