UK nail progressions help?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Sorry if this is regularly posted. I did a search but couldn't spot anything. I was wondering if someone has curated a UK list of nails/bolts etc that can be bought over the counter from DIY shops etc to progress through the difficulty? Does such a thing exist?

 

Cheers.

Go to fat bastard barbell company buy some 3/16" round & square 1018 cold rolled steel. Make sure you bend in ironmind pads only. What are your goals as of right now?

Hi,

Well, I've snapped a few six inch nails and have a grade 5 bolt from David Horne that I can't budge yet! I'm after some cheap stock to practice on. Isn't the Fat Bastard company in the US though?

I'm sure Andrew P ships to the UK. But if not then just go to McMaster or local steel supplier in your area. Ironmind is another option but much more expensive especially shipping cost.

Perhaps you could try some stainless steel 6 mm in various lengths?

Should be easier than the G5 bolt but significantly harder than the nails you have bent.

Which style are you bending with?

For the snapping I've been starting off over the knee, and then opening over my thigh and closing between the legs. Generally, I'm training reverse overhand, with a wrist developer.
