Bending today:

4 x bastards in doubles to 1.5"

Hell yeah!  What was your fastest bend?  Just curious because I saw that you list a Bastard in 5 minutes as a goal.

I got to the crush within a minute and then crushed it to 2" within 2 mins then had another look at it and got it to 1.5" in about 3 mins!

I can blast through the kink very fast but my crush has always lagged but it's getting better! I have plenty of bastards, big and huge to get through too ;)

Warmed up with a bastard then tackled 2 red nails for my first ever try. These felt easier on the kink than the bastards but alot harder on the crush. Would have got these easier if they weren't so off-centre again..any advice? I am marking them but I think one sides stronger.

Lol I just said 'warmed up' on a bastard ;)

Bending:

Wrist had some pain in it again, maybe I need to break the other one to strengthen it up like the one that isn't hurting lol.

Bent a big bastard to 3" within 30seconds. Left the crush for another day, will cert it very very soon.

Bending update:

In the process of ordering irongrip bars 120kg-145kg. Planning on certing all of these. Bit of work on small wraps and I should be back up to bending bastards and red nails in singles.

May push for red nail cert this year if my body holds up this time!
