emph, go for it mate! Not enough strong vegans about
I lean too far forwards, thats one thing i need to fix. The bar should be in line with your knees and i sometimes go too far over and make it too hard for myself. I'm improving though!
Been a bit hectic lately so no training to speak of (also have my forearm injury which doesn't help).
At Manchester Vegan Fair i did shut grippers once in a while, both #1 and #2 - though i wasn't able to close the #2 fully because of my sweaty hands. I also made my best attempt yet with #3 being only about 15-20mm away from closure.
Martin (the grip geezer) bent some pretty amazing bolts and nails at the fair and i tried to bend some as well - no luck. The best attempt was about 5 degree dent on it
Me, Oak and Prenna have a bit of a "competition" going on who gets 6 inch nail fully bent first... We all should have this in the bag in a month or two.
On sunday 9th i went to the gym with Oak, but couldn't go full bore because of my forearm problems. Pulled fairly comfortable 170kg deadlift, but adding even a bit to that proved too much at the moment
