oops sorry Vegan Hal, I accidentally hit edit instead of quote and so included my post in yours! fixed now.

Anyway ... so yeah i said the following not Vegan Hal

build that tent BGW!

Oh so rules are same as for strength table which reminds me that i should have mentioned the TEENY TINY detail that um ... ahem ... my 162 is with hooks and shin guards due to my recovering wrist :( Hopefully will nail one without hooks in a month or two!

edited to fix typo: I meant without hooks!

those exact ones. Except in my case I chose to have them surgically attached for added awesomeness.

Also I will now only answer to LordHook

it depends on your wrist problem i suppose. Given my specific problem (lack of flexibility/strength with supinated right hand) they do. I can happily lifted double pronated but obviously can't hold much with that. Straps also work well for me.

I have brought the Dark Side to this race and clearly it has now infected you all your minds! :(

perhaps we should draw the line at robotic legs?

:wink:

For reals though no straps, no hooks.

My listing of my own hook prowess is just for the purposes of showing progress and spurring people on. My lift is not valid and if I lifted 180kg with the hooks it wouldn't count.

In any case since my problem is just with my right supinated I can actually use my preferred mixed grip fine (right pronated, left supinated), I just train with the hooks because I can't switch to the other mixed grip and don't want to create an imbalance :( Were my hands bigger I'd have gone with hook grip (not to be confused with using hooks)

edited to add: so when i get up to 180kg with the hooks, I'll try it with my preferred mixed grip which hopefully won't have totally atrophied by then

Learn the hook grip like weightlifters. Hurts like hell for a month, then suddenly the pain disappears never to be felt again.
Way more effective than mixed grip in more than one way.

will look into it again

edited to say: on second thoughts it seems like one can grip the bar harder on mixed grip no (and gripping stuff harder activates more muscle fibers right?)?

I ask because I am hoping to be back using mixed grip soon. Can currently hold 80kg for ever in mixed grip. Tried 85kg but that was a bit too heavy after 5 hours of typing.

also edited to add: have moved myself down the table to just above tent building ;)

Over thinking alert!

I hook gripped up until about 200kg, then changed to mixed and got an extra couple of KG's cos my grip was failing with hook grip. My grip is hardly ever an issue though, so it will be different for you.

People pull huge lifts with hook, so I dont think give up on it. Cant find much online about Vincent Urbank, but he does mention lifting weights as a teenager, so I reckon its a good bet he was doing olympic lifts, so has spent years hook gripping.
