Big gripper donation from @Fist of Fury arrived today. Included an assortment of grippers, different size fat grips handles, a grip ball, and DHWOG 12mm mid length rated steel. I am very excited

I figured out that grippers is whats aggravating my knuckle injury. Its weakening my pinch and bending. For now im going to lay off the grippers (and SB holds) until the pain is gone and maybe on

That rebar looks mighty tough. It looks like your thumb pad has been beefing up compared to earlier pics 👍

Its mighty springy indeed. I have bought some 12mm HRS to compare

Thanks Paul! I've been progressing alot with blobs lately and I have noticed significant thumb pad growth. I wish I owned a TTK but for now the pony clamp pinch device works fine.

If you feel like a snake and want to change skin try a silver bullet hold with the GHP8 :D 

That gripper has the most aggressive knurling I ever felt on anything.

HORSESHOE HAUL

Nabbed a bunch of used shoes from a friend. Used shoes have the added bonus of rust and horse poop all over them, plus they're worn out in different areas.

Attempted a Werkman Striker 2 (8x22.5mm) which was worn down to 7.2mm at the crux of the bend. Stopped moving close to 90 degrees. Was too tough a shoe for a first timer to attempt. Will try some easier shoes and work my way up to this one again in the future.

Nice to see you bending some shoes! 

However, people are generally staying away from used shoes since the risk of a surprise snap is bigger. I have no personal experience tough.
But might be something to keep in mind.

Glad to start bending shoes. I ripped my skin on my left hand and my right hand has tendon pain and inflammation. So id say it was a great first horseshoe session 🤣

Some are worn down at the crux and others are worn around the legs. And risk of snapping adds more excitement to the bend 😆 but ill let you know if any of them try to kill me

  • 3 weeks later...

Been goofing around with steel bending last couple weeks. Now its time to start training seriously again. Thickbar, SB, pinch, and strict style bending.

I will only log my main lifts from now on, cant be bothered writing up the entire workout

Inch trainer

53.5kg: 1, 1, 1, 2

43.5kg (wrist curl): 2x2

33.5kg (wrist curl): 3x5

 

Was very surprised at this lift. My previous max was 52kg so hitting this PR for multiple reps and sets was a huge milestone especially since my thickbar has been lacking
