  2. Sun (5/3) DU - IMPs 1/4 x 6.5" HRS 1/4 x 6.5" O1 1/4 x 6.5" 1045 1/4 x 5.75" Grade 5 Horseshoes SCF Lite Plain #0 SSP 8x18 #000 Grippers - 20mm (1x3) Trainer (1x3) #1.5 (1x3) GHP5 - 111 (1x1) RB 210 - 120 A few weeks ago, I started ramping-up my shoe bending to make one last run at my nemesis shoe, the SSP #000. I've been haunted by this thing since 2012, when I got one to about 160 degrees in a cert. attempt. There were dozens over the years in the "barely wobble" to 140 degree range. But tonight, I bent one to just over 180 degrees. I wasn't planning on making an attempt at one, but the Lite Plain #0 felt easy right before it and was destroyed. I figured I would see what happened. This was not a cert attempt, but would have passed if I would have documented everything. I don't think this will really sink-in for several weeks. I felt for many years that there was NO WAY I would ever bend or finish this shoe, and as I got older, the probability of it happening seemed near-impossible. But I bent it and this was a multi-year goal checked-off. Now I just need to document and get another one for a cert. attempt.

    Bending log

    Tuesday 2/6/20 Tried some DO in single pads today 7x152 mm in suedes - got it down right under 2". This was a pain tolerance bend, haven't bent much in suedes in a while and I guess my hands are getting soft. 1/4x6" Grade 8 bolt rated 204 kg in IMP's - This was the only one of these I had, wish I had more, this was a good challenge bend for me, way harder than the 190 kg. Was not a good day today, didn't do any full body work, only warmup for hands and shoulders. Going to the gym tomorrow, hopefully.

    Hello folks, My name is Jason I am 22 and hail from the sunny kingdom of Scotland, I'm about 165-170lbs year round, pretty average paws 7.5", I've been into grip for a few months now and have developed a tad of a obsession in that short time. I really like bending nails and most of the aspects of grip. I would love to do a competition in the future when I've built up a little bit more strength and right now I am focused on training for the IRONMIND crushed to dust challenge

    Off topic but why do you need a N95 mask, or any mask, to cut the grass?
  19. Behind on posting. I had my medial school COMLEX level 1 boards exam on Friday and then spent the entire weekend moving. My forearms were pretty sore yesterday from carrying things, but after climbing two flights of stairs a zillion times my calves are so tight I can barely walk. I probably won't have access to a gym or weights for a while, so it's back to bodyweight exercises. 😪 Monday Floor press 137x10x5 (lb x reps x sets) Steel bending overhand 1/4 x 6" grade 5 bolt in leather with bands (380) 9/32 x 7" CRS in BBW without bands (330) 60d nail x 3 in leather with bands 20d nail x 3 in leather with bands Gripper chest crush 133x5x5 Took me a few tries to figure out how to put some padding on the handles so that they still touched. Bruised my palms a little, but I need to work on my crush. Wednesday Zercher squat 137x8x3 Steinborn squat 187 fail 137x1 (on the third try) Last workout with the borrowed plates before I had to return them, figured I would do something silly with them before I gave them back. Thursday Steel bending overhand 5/16 x 6" grade 2 bolt (400) 9/32 x 5.5" CRS (420) 60d nail x 3 in leather with bands 20d nail x 3 in leather with bands Grade 2 bolt went down super easy, the 5.5" bar freaking sucked though. Kink and sweep were easy for me as always, but the crush probably took me 15-20 minutes to go from ~2.25" to 1.75". I had to keep taking the padding off to check if it was done, re-chalk my hands, and try a different technique. Finishing off this bar felt about as difficult as finishing the Bastard I did a few weeks ago. I was over the time limit for a cert, but this was a PR for sure. Need to try to bend another Bastard in a few weeks and see if I can get it down to under five minutes for the FBBC cert, although under one minute would be pretty cool as an indicator for the IronMind cert (and instagram).

    The Newest Mashmonster - Level 3 - Stephen Anderson

    Mr. Anderson, we see you are back. Just because we could hear the loud click of handles in our section of the Universe, rest assured that we are still watching you very carefully: PS Powerful close. I was witness for Clay Edgin's MM3, and Clay, a Legendary Grip Monster, did not close the MM3 anywhere near decisively as you did Mr Anderson. You very well may be The One.

Not used to having that much on my back which aggravated my neck a little. Not really a fan of them, but try to work them in every so often. Years back, after walking-out 600, 525 felt "light" right afterwards.
