May not have been the best room to do your first armwrestling practice ever XD. Every single guy there were killers.

Hopefully it’s healing up quick.

What doest kill me makes me stronger (except maybe polio)

Was still a fun experience to wrestle with some top guys.

Imagine not being able to lockout 20kg on the blob trainer.

Imagine being able to hide behind a grain of rice

Good job on the snap! Just a few months ago you had problems just moving the G5 at all. 
 

Next is to see how fast you can snap 3 G5’s in a row!

Thanks 👍

My snapping technique is probably horrible since I've only done it twice before. I don't understand how some guys snap G8s in 20s cause it had to bend this back and forth like 50 times before it snapped.

Gonna train from home next few months because of covid recommendations.

Although most of my stuff is at an AW gym far away for a grip comp I have enough tools to keep my grip strength up until then.
