88.1lbs, 12 inch diameter, 3.5" wide piece of Steel Drop (leftover chunk of steel).

Beside the weight and width...it has a relatively sharp edge...making it hard to tilt since it cuts into your hand.

John Manna gave it to me...hence the name.

 

So far...8 people have lifted it.

Jedd Johnson, Kody Burns, Nick Rosendaul, Jake Salahney, Bob Sundin, Gil Goodman, Jason Gonzales, Aaron Corcorran.

 

Others have got air...and I've heard Tim Butler may have lifted it this past comp.

Haha, let's see. But it's not easy especially seeing the list of people deadlifting it only. Anyone cleaned it or was close to it? Or anyone lifted it easily besides Aaron?

It's sharp, I lifted it with two hands and even that was pretty unpleasant.

Gil did a nice high pull...making it LOOK easy.  Hard to say though...he's like the poker face of Grip.

Originally it was worse.  I filed it just slightly to avoid easy cuts.  It's sharpness keeps the pinch vertical, eliminating most of the usable tilt.

It wasn't too bad. Wish I would have tried to clean it.

Maybe next time.

I did manage a lift but I didn't expect to be able to so it wasn't filmed 🙁 there were a lot of witnesses though but I still wanna get it on film next time!

Timmy unfortunately nowadays nobody believes anything that wasn’t filmed. I believe you man. What did people do before video? They took a man at his word. I trust a man at his word until proven otherwise.

@temmmeeee I saw you lift it. It was a good lift that first try. You will get it on camera no problem next time.

So it was Temmeee who lifted it? As his comment wasn't clear because it was a quote from anwnate. Timmy can lift it he easily did the blob and face lifted it.

Once can destroy a blob and watch the Manna-Nuff sit on the floor.  Pinching a pair of 45's is more on par with the Manna-Nuff lift.

 

I have been hanging pictures of those who have lifted the Manna-Nuff...while they are actually lifting the Manna-Nuff.

I trained regularly with Matt Hunt and Matt Kraenbring at my house.  One day, I went to use the bathroom and found out that Kraenbring got a lift in my absence. 

While I believe Kraenbring (and Tim of course), he couldn't do it again with the camera out. 

When I can get an "action" shot of the lift, I will send the print to Costco...so the lifter can join that impressive group.

Kraenbring is local and Timmmeeeeeeeeeeee (how many?) is within traveling distance to work out...so it's really just a question of "when", not "if" we get that pic.

In the meantime...

It definitely wasn't easy for me like it was for Aaron haha but I did manage to lift it. Very different from lifting a blob by the face in my opinion. That requires more from the finger tips which seems to be one of my strongest areas.

Actually I prefer not to call him Timmy/timmy but rather Temmeeee (or his name, sorry I forgot not feeling well now). Because we all know timmy was a well know fraud.

True. But I meant you easily lifted the blob both ways you have that power in you.

Coming in late, but just wanted to comment and say that i was there when @temmmeeee lifted the Manna Nuff and got a good hold on it. We didn't record it because the guy is so modest he was convinced he wasn't going to be able to lift it.

Timbo slice is definitely a humble dude! A man of modesty for sure! Love that guy!
