Thanks, Michael. This is the way I’m gonna do them from now on. Can’t cheat and I only feel it in my wrist and forearm. When I do them standing, you get a lot of Lat and shoulder/biceps/triceps assistance. This way, it is pure lower arm.

For the layman. Haha. I have total control and know when not to do another rep. I never even came close to an accident. Just gotta “use my head”... 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Thanks, brother. Been slacking on them for a while now and have to get back into it. I don’t want to lose the ability to do this stuff. Levering strength goes down quick if it’s nit maintained, more so than other things in my own experience l.

 Since trying them, I find double devices a little  easier due to the co -contraction of both sides of the body  than single hammers  for some reason. And the device at the end where it stops the hammer seems to make it easier in my opinion to, where you don’t have to Automatically go from eccentric to concentric contraction with no stopping   for the next rep.

 Nice video Chris. I’ve seen this one a few times. And the face guard is a plus to avoid the inexperienced from Braining themselves. Thanks for your contribution!! How are you doing these days?

Joe - we had one hand sledge for max weight the year or two before this. For a contest where people will be going to their limit I thought the "rack" a good idea.  Yes it is different (and somewhat easier) but also a lot safer from a promoters point of view.  

How am I doing - the answer is great.  The surgery has completely eliminated the face pain.  Since getting off the drugs my balance has returned - my mind is clearer etc.  I struggled with things for 3 years - sure wish I had had the surgery a lot earlier.  I feel good enough I'm considering doing another contest or two after I get my strength back - still awful weak and heavy lifts give me some pressure where they drilled the hole in my head.

Dude I am so glad to hear it!! And yes it is a good idea to prevent any injury, no doubt!! 

I have been thinking about you as gripmas starts to get near! Was hoping all was well with you and SO great to hear you will be getting back into training! The best thing you can do for yourself, as you already know! Train until we can’t train no more!! 

You are in my prayers...

Joe

Through it all I never missed a workout.  Some days using "workout" was not the right word - but I always "showed up"

If you can’t run, walk, if we can’t walk, crawl.... if we can’t crawl, pull yourself by the teeth with a rope attached to a WC!! 

YEA BROTHER!!!!

Agreed 100%, levering strength goes away in a hurry if not used, but it seems to come back just as fast!

Yes it does. It’s always a let down when strength goes down and has to be rebuilt. That’s why I like to maintain or exceed.

“Putting on the brakes” with a 20 pound stamped arm wrestling table top face lever. 

Idea from John “jokabug” Oka
