25mm block, traded my easy 1.5 for a hard one. This one feels almost like my #2. Still very weak 😂

I wonder how you smell not leaving the appartment for 10+ days and I dont even dare to guess how few showers you had. 

Oh well, I guess you smell like rainbows and flowers as girls normally do. ❤

That's lovely to hear you girls still hanging out, although I know its a bit frustrating for my mother that you copy everything she has. David, you are good as you are ♡

No, I’m going to be abusive as hell. Thrash you with my belt and lock you in the basement.

I don’t need to push you in. I just have to throw in a bag of chips and lock the door behind you.

Doesn't it look like I have all the chips I need? Question is, could you actually lift a bag of chips in your current form?

Careful with the pan being braced against your abdomen, seems like a good way to get a hernia.

I have no pan bending experience but from the videos I have seen it looks like the pan should be braced against your hip and you drive downwards with your arms and body to bend the pan.

Grippers: 

RH

#3.5 1 0

GG6 0 

#3.5 0 

LH

#3 1 1 0 0 

Elbow tendinitis flaired up on the heavy attempts so couldnt do backoff as planned. Happy with the close, no hype low pulse no caffeine. 

Played with some hubholds, terrible xD some 1 handed eurolift on 30ish just for fun.

A friend sent me some bolts and grippers. A 350LBS noname gripper left turn which feels like a monster. A filed #3.5 rated 188 and 4 pieces of bolts called 4.6 bolts 145mm and 135mm. According to my friend they are around 150 on David Hornes scale. I have no idea so ill take his word :)

As I first didn't know I started with the shortest one trying to DU bend it. Got a small kink in it, since its 135mm it feels like it disappears in the hands and I can't pressure it. 

Then I took a 145mm which melted, felt perhaps easier then the 7mm nails I have. 

Then tried one reverse, almost got it but its a bit to short to really get good pressure. 

Ended with trying to DO bend a 7mm nail 180mm long. Couldn't move it. So I bent it reverse and finnished it with a crush. 

 

4.6 bolt 135x0 

4.6 145mm x1 DU 

4.6 145 x0 (close) Reverse 

7mm 180mm nail x1 Reverse
