Light Workout - Practice Sunday

Did a very light workout today with the weights and grip tools
because me and Jake will practice pulling Sunday.

Being that I went light I tried some new exercises with my
"Total Wrist Developer" and "T-Bomb Handles."

I did curls with both devices at different angles and wrist positions.

Did my one-arm rowing with 63 lb. Kettle Bell instead of my "flat handle"
made by Ryan Pitts.

Also got my arms good and warm and did some bounce rafter chins.
This where you bounce off the floor with your feet for momentum to
do the next rep. When you don't have to bounce you know that you've
gotten stronger for sure.

Did some "revolving handle" single arm dead lifts with 2" Crusher from
FBBC. This really helps your hand strength for setting up at the AW table.

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!

Happy Holidays!!!

I wish everyone a Happy Holiday season and may all
of your training goals be achieved.

I appreciate all of you who visit my site and it's my hope
that I've helped someone out in some way to becoming
a better strength athlete both mentally and physically.

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!

New Workout Shed!!! 11-22-08

Got my new custom built workout shed Saturday.

It's only 12' x 14' but the way I had lofts put on both sides for

storage frees up a lot of floor space.

All the siding is pressure treated.

Flooring is treated 3/4" plywood supported underneath with

treated 2 x 6's set 16" apart.

When I get the inside the way I want it I'll post some pics.

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!

UPDATE: Forearm Training

Forearm Training:

I've been working my forearms every day of the week except
weekends to see if you can overtrain the forearms.

I'm convinced after 5 weeks of doing this you can't.

Here's what I do:

Standing Fat Bar Wrist Curls, 5 sets x 20

Reverse Wrist Curls w/Forearm Blaster, 5 sets x 20

The Forearm Blaster I purchased from Ultimate Arm Wrestling.
It's possibly the best forearm developer I've ever purchased.

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!

Arm Wrestling Practice-Finally!

It's been nearly a month since I've got to pull with anyone.
I've had to pull on my tubes and do exercises that simulate
arm wrestling technique.

My main partner (Jake Culver) has started back training with me again
and I'm so happy. It's hard to find consistent pulling partners.

What I've been doing is working. Last time I pulled Jake I couldn't match
his set-up at the table and unless I got the hit I couldn't touch him. That's
all changed with my new training. He couldn't match my hand at all tonight.

Jake said at this rate I will be tough to beat real quick. Hope he's right!

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!

Training Going Well! Very Busy!

Training going well!!!

I don't post every workout because I'm so busy right now.

I've been working my forearms every day except weekends
and the results are impressive. I've gained nearly an half inch
to my forearms in less than a month from this training.

I haven't had anyone to practice arm wrestling with lately so I've
been pulling on my Life Line tubes with different handle attachments.

I had a custom made Grip Machine made by Ryan Pitts I should be
getting any time now. I can't wait to put it to use.

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!
