*loud victorious yelling* (Hexabastard in BBW)

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

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

I don’t know how to quantify it. I have bent a few reds but never moved these more than a degree or two in the years I have had them.

Great bend, Josh!!!  Even the "easiest" Hexabastards I ever bent were way beyond any Red.  I found them very hard to kink too - and had an easier time with them at 6" and under to be honest.

I had every intention of having a good long session but the forecast said the rain was coming and I had projects to finish outside before the down pour started. I didn’t make it through the projects completely. I have three that require sanding and finishing. And I lined up three more projects while I was working!!!

Get your Sunday started(5pm)

i see patterns a lot of times in people’s training. I used to point things out to Brent when we would grip regularly.  I noticed a few things in a few peoples training that I will be incorporating into my training. 

Thick bar work- KV Method (Kapusta-Vance)

4-1/4 handle to 75, thumbless to 90, pinned to 125

2.5 crusher to 125

2 incher to 165

2x70D, then Hexabastard in BBWs - the kink was hard but yielded easily the rest of the way. PR.

A week later and I am still building back up from my work trip. I made it over to Brent's and he let me borrow his Euro to prepare our group for Gripmas. I forgot what a great piece of traing equipment it is. I need to get mine pulled together.(I need spacers)

Tested 21hp - this is the first time I can remember pinching over my bodyweight!

Shoes - polo0 & SCF LR1

I have gone full blown Gripmas elf and I will try to have a picture up later of some toys.

A couple questions -

1 what's your bodyweight?

2. It's not all that impressive if you had to use 21 hands :)

At that time, I was 213.

on a board about grip training with tons of weird words and acronyms, autocorrect still changes things to even weirder words.🤔

The week in review 

nothing remarkable occurred this week training wise. I made an unwise attempt at a shiny that went nowhere. I am listening to an audio book by Dan John which helped with some ideas and reinforcement of some things I forgot I knew.

sunday

i made a last ditch attempt at the April rolls wrist roller challenge but with the extra work shifts, I didn’t have the energy. I did a series of blob/blockweight loads to a platform and plate pinches. I did 3trips with 100 per hand on my farmers🤞And a tabata set of push presses/thrusters with the empty bar - interesting 

At my work now we are given gloves to protect our hands and told to mark them so they don’t get wasted. I draw on mine.

Thanks for reading my log.

bend 70Dx3 I will soon run out of this stock and the nearest menards is a bit of a drive to get more. Thinking...

tried to get a setup going for the April challenge on Reddit, dead hangs with weight. Sketchy.

I am going to be sharing more loosely grip related material in my log, if everyone is ok with that. What say you?

i am not sure if the weighted hangs are stretching me or my setup. When I started the weights were a few inches from the ground.

Do I look taller now? 😂😂😂

2 things:

A- The anaconda 4 is neat. Would you film some lifts on it?

2- did not know you were braced bending. 

Otherwise, everything else checks out.

I brace bend from time to time. I like long bar, mid bar, and scrolling. Acquiring steel and cost are the biggest limiting factors. I wish I could do it much more.

i will definitely get a bunch of lifts on the A4 replica.

I worked on it for 7 or 8 minutes or so. I worked it back and forth a few inches finding positions. It will be a great training tool for shoe kinks and crush positions. Eventually I will kill it.

Tuesday

bench 215 3x5, 155 3x8

farmers 100 2 trips I did this today because I didn’t fit it in on Sun.

Do Bend - there was too much time between bending sessions and I lost any semblance of technique. I couldn’t get the bar up high. I bennt 5/16hr on my chest, all kinds of awkward. I bent a few 60Ds trying to find my way back.
