2” axle strict press: 115x5, 135x3, 155x2, 165x1, 175x1, 185x1 

2 3/8” Napalms Nightmare: 195x5, 230x3, 265x2, 285x1, 310x1, 310x2 (only used chalk on last set, didn’t help much I guess) 

2.5” Trilobite: 137x1, 147x1R, 157x0R, 154.5x1R (2.5# PR right hand)

2” axle reverse curl: 75x7, 95x5, 85x7 

Also lots of band triceps pushdown and sledge pro/sup reps 

Finally after months of trying got a right hand PR with 2.5” Trilobite. This thing has been my nemesis for so long.

200 lb pinch on any implement is respectable. Nice.

Thanks! I got 225 on it once but haven’t come too close to that lately, pinch block is starting to lose some texture from use

DOH bends: 

60D timber tie - suede 

60D - suede 

1/4” x 6” grade 2 bolt - leather 

1/4” x 6” grade 2 bolt - suede 

2 60D timber ties taped together - leather - failed 

60D timber tie - suede only rolled 1/2 way (x2)

60D - suede 

2 3/8” wrist wrench: 62x5, 67x5, 72x2L/4R 

Oly bar curls (25mm bar): 75x5, 105x5, 125x3 

Ring dip holds (~10 secs): 

Ring fallouts: 3 sets of 10 

Really glad I started bending. Trying to take it slow but man is it addicting. Need to pick up some Ironmind pads soon, the timber ties I have are way too easy in suede. 

Also did quite a bit of upper body band work; pullaparts, curls, tricep extensions, straight arm pull downs, etc

3” Trilobite: 77x5, 87x3, 97x3, 107x3, 122x1R (2.5# PR)

2 3/8” Napalms Nightmare: 260x3, 285x3, 300x2

Really happy with Trilobite PR, especially since I haven’t used it in almost 2 months  

I really don’t like push presses, they feel weird, can’t get the timing down. Will stick with strict presses

Awesome day today. Really starting to like wider pinch vs thinner. Was going to do some bending but got caught up with grip stuff so I just let it ride.

DOH bends: all with FBBC suede 

60D timber ties: 2 

60D: 1 

1/4 x 6 grade 2 bolt: 4

1/4 x 5 grade 2 bolt: 4

2” axle reverse curl: 75x7, 85x7, 95x5 

First time bending anything under 6”. Really can’t believe how much harder 5” of the same diameter is. Never thought 1” would make that much difference. 

Also 3 sets each of band tricep push downs and pronation/supination
