My Red Nail Certification

Recommended Posts

I sent IronMind an email, and have been in contact with my referee. He should have the nails in a few days. I just had my last deload bending session. I feel strong and am optimistic about my attempt. Hopefully all goes well! I will try to film my attempt and let you guys know how it goes.

Thanks! I have been able to bend them. In this video I don't use a board with clamps to roll the steel, but I'll bring a more sophisticated system to my cert attempt

Great effort man, you'll get that cert easily.

Good luck on the cert! I'd suggest chalking the hell out of the pads too on cert day to prevent any slippage - they look too blue!

Thanks guys, and thanks for the advise. I had not thought to chalk both sides of the wraps.

Bro your pretty much a monster at everything. Do you feel bouldering helped develop your wrist strength?

Tell Dan I said hello!  Sorry about your Reds by the way.  I'm sure they'll make it right though.

Sucks about the delay, but still might be the quickest cert since first touching a red nail. :cool

He is most certainly one of the fastest to cert the red.

in fact, im not sure anyone has come into the grip scene so dominant in such a short time. Especially at under 200lbs

It is hard to say. Climbing is the only form of exercise I have ever really done. So I guess whatever strength I have now I can attribute to climbing. However, I feel that climbing developed my fingers and wide pinch much more than it did my wrists. I still consider my wrists to be my biggest weakness. Gripsport has built my wrists up a lot more though. For example, the past 6 years I have been unable to do pushups on my palms because of wrist pain (always had to do them on my fists), since training gripsport, I have been able to build my wrists up enough that I can do standard pushups again, pain free.

Well it wasn't pretty, but I bent the nail in front of my ref under Certification conditions. Just gotta wait to hear back from IM to make it official. This was my worst red nail bend yet. My hand placement was wacky and I got overzealous. Oh well, still made it happen.

Wow, you mangled that nail. Not pretty, true, but you have too much power for that to matter.
