So. Never hit 40 degrees and I cant measure diddly squat. This...This is why absolute domination is in order. Next time Ill crush it so that I wont even need that stupid protractor. 

Nate explained it succinctly.  I was not bagging on your bend, it is still a very strong short DU bend!  Just figured I'd let you know about the measurement in case you wanted to cert because most of the DU cert bends are a 40 degree requirement.

Feeling blah as hell today. 

My strength seemed to feel sapped so, I opted to use my steel benders helper for this session as more a supplement. 

First I took a crack at my advanced model SBH rated to around where a red nail tends  to be. 450lbs or so. Thats the farthest Ive moved it, so needless to say the bulk bending of 60ds is helping,  Video below:

I did 5x8 with my 160lb rated sub intermediate each rep slow and controlled. 

I need the super intermediate model. I really like these devices. Hand made, can be also used to throw at kids on your lawn, or you can use it as a self defense tool. It’s springy so you have a fight each rep. You can use it in any of the bendings forms you want. Only downside I can mention is its diameter and length tends to not accurately reflect what you will get when you bend an actual bar. But I dont feel this defeats the intent in anyway.

I’m trying. Took a beating from some of ya’ll and my wife to finally get the gears moving.

i regret I wont be able to ever see a gripmas. Really disappointed. But I hope with your blessing we can continue  a gripmas like contest somewhere. I feel likeit shouldnt just fizzle out. Seems to be one of the frw things these knuckleheads really really look forward to.

Took a trip to the lands of the pickup artist for some training. No expectations as I havent done diddly for atleast a year and a half. To my surprise I did pretty good.

Tried a 58mm 2hp euro for 190-200 pounds cold twice. With a proper warmup and some technique refinement I think I can do some serious weight. I now understand the love affair with the euro..its siren song is undeniable. Im in love.

I did 60 or so pounds on the lukes inch wrench

Lifted the inch 4-5 inches twice and it was balanced too! I did a bunch of attempts with the sudin method of chip weights on the finger side. But no go. I was closer this time then when I tried to lift it at SS16 and SJ4. 

Theres no footage of the other lifts to include my poor attemps at 2x45 pinch. No one really expected shit to get done from me haha

But I pinched these here 3-25kg plates, video is my first go I also lifted it again and moved it with an additional 5lbs of chip weight. Cant wait till next time. 

Feels great.

Shawn, you were very impressive today with the 3x25k pinch, Euro lifting and controlled air with the Inch! No complaints about the rain and quagmire conditions either, you were very positive and fun to be around.

I think a sojourn to Crooksville or Towanda or to see any of the top 2HP guys that can help you with form will get you over #250 before you know it. The fact that you could do what you did today with no frame of reference re: form, width and in an admittedly de-trained state is frankly one of the most impressive grip performances I've witnessed. Pinch is fickle and unpredictable for sure, but you must have some serious potential, so don't get too discouraged when you have days where your poundage is way down. Just train based on perceived difficulty and the weights will increase on your "on" days. I wish I could help you more with form, but I'm more of a 1+1=2 pincher (1HP RH+LH ~=2HP).

Dude. I was supposed to bend tomorrow and I ruined it in favor of muddy grip implements and rain. No regrets

Finally was able to do some bending after being sore for like 5 days.

stretched and hit some iso on this spiral red. Starting the kink is my weakest point. Once I get it started theres a good chance Ill smash.  Followed by some 1/4 square and random drill. I assume its L. I ripped through my 9/32 stock before I quit. Ill be placing an order for L, M, 19/64, and N. Really bridge the gap here. I cant let my unofficial nemesis Tom get ahead of me.

Really good advice Bob. I’m not good at programming my training, but this basic principle has worked for me so far.

Around 50’. Nail should be slid left more. Try to get the bent leg to parallel the lines radiating from the axis the same as the “straight” leg parallels the base.

Jason is right for sure. It looks like probably fully bent if slid left to where it should be. Really nice bend Shawn.

10% rule states “ As the user you must be 10% smarter then the equipment you are using”

 I however failed more times then I care to admit and totally killed my excitement because Im dumber then a concrete slab. But it has to be recorded. And my ducks need to be in a row.

Upon proper usage of the device this is the result. For f@cks sakes right?🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Attempted a gripper workout. Didnt feel fatigued at all, funny how the cns works. Evidently I wasnt at full recovery.

 

RH:

3x1 at 165(not clicks but close enough I finished the sets out)

1x1 at 160 (filed) this is when I knew it wasnt time to work out. Meh. It is what it is.
