Steel Bending, Scrolling, Snapping and other forms of destruction

Recommended Posts

I am in Charleston for vacation and stopped by Brett Bracken’s gym. We bent and snapped. He is strong and did a great Steel Shredder 5 attempt. I snapped a Grade 8 Bolt in a neck bridge. First time doing this. Brett has done a lot of real long bars DO, 10” and 12” bars. I had never tried that. I did a 10” x 3/8 spike DO. Very awkward but fun to do. I have a cut on my belly from the bridge snap. My shirt fell forward and when the bar snapped the jagged edge cut my skin. Tuck the shirt in next time!

Have you thought about trying a shiny bastard?

I did the DHWOG Giant Killer Combo Snap today. A grade 5 Bolt and 6” nail taped together. A tough snap. There are some problems due to the bars only being 6”. This is not a big deal if not as hard of a snap, but with 2 together made it much harder. I hope to increase my speed on this in the next couple of weeks.

First post here and thought this was a great place to post it. This is a unbraced 12" spike x 3/8th. Hopefully this is the first of many bends I post here. By the way thanks @Donc101 for the shout out in the earlier post. It's always a pleasure having you visit the gym.

Great to see you on the board man!

Some bends from today. A red nail and a red nail cut to 6” both bent DU. Also, a new scroll. Also, bent DO and reverse and did some snaps. A good workout today.

I did 2 FBBC DU cert videos tonight. @Buccos1 is the only one on the big golden bastard list right now. Here are videos and a photo of the bends.

Thanks Carl! I watched your DU Big Golden bastard bend last night. Nice bend!  Nothing has been updated recently. Hopefully, soon.

Great day bending today. I felt real strong. Last day bending before Zass Day. I have been hitting reverse and DU hard for some bends I will attempt on Zass Day. I hit a PR on DU, doing a 5.5” Red Nail. It felt great. I can definitely do harder soon. I also bent a Red Nail in a front neck bridge. Not sure if that has been done before. I have never seen anyone else do it. All in all a great workout. Here are some bends and photos.

My daughter, Scarlett, is turning 5. I bent 5 Gold Nails and snapped 5 Red Nails for her tonight.

I had a good show performing for a Cub Scout group on Monday. The kids went wild. It was lots of fun.

Congrats. This are strong bends and short lists.

And nice to see, that there are still confirmations from FBBC.

Good workout today doing lots of different things. I started back doing some long DO bends. Below is a pic of 8 3/8” “S” drill rod I bent DO. This drill rod is way harder than CRS of similar size. Also a pic of 6 grade 5 bolts I bent with DHWOG pads touching.

I bent and snapped a red nail in just one DHWOG pad during training today. Quite painful throughout but the first big DO hit stung the most. Fun way to bend. Also, did some tearing. Photo of a chunk tore from some Mavericks below.

Two recent bends. My goal was to work against 160kg GBI bar cert, but I feel now that working with IMP and going for Red Nail might be a better route.
