That’s awesome man thanks. Obviously you would have to do the lift in a competition to be on the list? Either way it’s something to shoot for. That was my first time using the flask and it was a new flask. I’ll try maxing again in about a month and see how I do. Maybe by the time there is a competition I could potentially have a top 10 lift we’ll see. That would be really cool. I’m not sure of the weight of the loading pin but it’s the iron mind 2” plate loading pin. 

No problem. First time they are slick, mine was the same when i tried maxing. Ive been doing 1 handed since i got it a month or so ago and its starting to season in a bit. 

Oh yes all contest lifts but it still gives you something to shoot for.  

The IM oly pin weighs 3.7lbs.

Your weight plates may vary in weight maybe so you might want to round it down to 3lbs to keep it simple. (Ive weighed all mine)

That means you lifted 160lbs first try, at 175lbs or so that is outstanding. It gives me some great motivations to keep up with you lol.

Thanks man. I have some goals to shoot for now. When are you maxing out next? Curious to know what you get now. Also my plates are machines plates supposed to be within 2% tolerance so not perfect but should be pretty close.

Cool, you have a good 2 hand pinch so its always good to work on weaknesses rather than strengths.

Thats why ive been focusing on 1 handed as 2 handed comes naturally. Im curious myself how much carryover from 1 hand to 2 hand i will have had so we ill see. Ill max next week some time when im fresh.

had to take it easy feeling worn out. Have been working 72 hour weeks the last 2 weeks and 64 this week. Next week should be down to 50 hours so hopefully training goes better.
