Amazing, I cannot comprehend how you bend that kind of nails. 

Juha what kind of training you do in general for you specific strength? I see you do Bench here and there, but not much more then that and deadlifting the occasional barbell with one hand. Although not on social media lol

Thanks bro! Imo strong back is the key to bend heavy bars. Normally I train like a bodybuilder doing lots of sets and reps without any specific training.

Whilst that style of bending is not my cup of tea, I have to admit you’ve got it nailed and the results speak for themselves. Strong and ruthlessly efficient.

 

Extremely impressive.

 

I think I may have picked up a couple of small things I can focus on to get a little more back into my sweep and initial crushdown.

 

Thanks for posting!

What have you found in your training that you can attribute to you smashing the gold?

You know what you are doing, but my advice don't rush it. You clearly hand the strength but need to adapt it to IM pads. Rushing will cause problems. Maybe by next year it will happen.

You're right and I'm not gonna rush on that project! This is easy to bar to crush. Problem is now the first wobble/kink in single pads. Now I focus on that. Second problem is that shipping in Finland is not cheap, 6 bars+shipping cost ~50€. I have +8" 9.8mm bars and these are very similar than Gold, maybe even harder to kink.

I just have to concentrate on one thing at the time and also I'm +15kg heavier than last time attempt this. Hope that's help.

Absolutely awesome bend! Best of luck training and pursuing the cert - when was the last time you attempted a gold before this video? Also was there a basketball game going on during your bend and did you jump in after it and crush the other team? Just incredible!

Thank you! It's been over a year ago. I think basketball or volleyball 😁

Wow - clearly your last year of training paid off - how often do you train bending now? Once a week? Every other week? Every other day? You barely looked winded after taking down that gold nail - really awesome
