Workout- Fat Bar

Military Press:

3 sets, 8-10 reps
90 lbs.
I felt like I could have strictly pressed 20-25 lbs. more.
I'll try more next time. Feeling it out day.

Standing Barbell Curls:

3 sets, 8-10 reps
60 lbs.
Could have curled more easily. Just making sure I didn't
trigger any tendonitis.

Note: Just for fun I thought I would see if I could deadlift
200 lbs. on this Fat Bar and I failed. About the time it left
the floor it rolled out of my thumbs.

Kept going down in weight until I hit 176 lbs. Got it! My
short term goal is 200 lbs.

I use an overhand grip. No wrist curling. That's cheating.
Straight up pull with grip strength.


DO bending with some IM Yellows. Trying to perfect my
technique before moving to the grade 5 bolts.

IM wraps with a 5" x 4" piece of suede as a inner lining, then
the IM wraps last. Seems to work for me. Outside diameter
of the completed wrap is 1- 1/4"

Fixing to go try some G2 bolts 6" x 1/4".

Stay tuned and stay Strong!
