Diesel Shirts

I’m back from holding a Grip Challenge alongside the Arm Wrestling Tournament at the Great New York State Fair, and I’ve got some shirts left over, so I’ve posted them below. Also, I’ve put up the other shirts I have left over from past orders. You can save on shipping by ordering multiple shirts. Any questions, please let me know.

Thanks!

August Training Highlights

August 30th, 2017

I thought I’d do something I haven’t done in a while and just post some highlights I’m proud of for August.

Training has been GREAT this month. I look forward to August every month, due to August of Arms. I feel like it’s a chance for me to get away from the stresses of Grip and some of the frustrations of strength training, and just train for me. Almost like a vacation, even though I train just about every day.

I did take off 2 days in August. Both were Sundays. On one of them, I was a bit hung over from too much indulgence the day before and I knew the training was going to suck. The other day, I was extremely busy preparing content for Legtember, which is all ready now and you can pick it up through that link. After shooting 20+ leg videos, editing them, and uploading them for the Legtember exercise index, I was wiped and just couldn’t pull together enough energy for a respectable workout.

Here are some of the lifts I’ve been most happy with this month.

Max Alternated Dumbbell Curl

One of my ultimate goals is to curl 100lb dumbbells. I made a big PR this year, by finally curling my dumbbells that are marked “85s,’ but actually scale out at 91lbs apiece. I’ve tried at least a half dozen times to curl these sons of guns, and never been able to get past parallel position, but they came up pretty strong earlier this month.

Blobzilla + 55lb Anvil by the Heel

I finally seem to have gotten through some index finger injuries. One that came all the way back into last August (2016) from breaking a nail in a strongman show, to the prep for Nationals in June 2017, on the Tips Tester. My fingers just do not like that piece. I haven’t been able to lift Blobzilla many times since about April due to my fingers hurting. The 55lb Anvil by the Heel – I threw that in just for some variety.

Runing Man Dumbbell Biceps Curls Challenge

My endurance has improved well over the course of the month. I really had to take a lot of breaks the first and second time I ran through this. I was “ON,” on this day though. I think I can shave it down to under 2 minutes, if I can manage to get through it with zero rest-breaks.

110 Dumbbell Bench Press x 16 Reps

Until I get heavier dumbbells, I’m shooting to build this up to a set of 20 reps. My long term goal for Dumbbell Bench Press is still 150s for a set of 10. I did a set of 3 near the end of July, while I was on vacation.

I’m extremely please with the results I’ve seen from this month’s arm training, especially in the performance department, and I hope all of you who picked up the August of Arms program are seeing the same kind of thing. I can’t wait until the month is over to get a measurement. I think I have a real good chance to hit the 20″ mark. It will also be re-test day on the 4 main movements, and I can see those going up BIG TIME.

To also have seen some resurgence in my Block Weight Strength, as well as improvement on the Dumbbell Bench Press – those are just sweet, sweet bonuses.

And of course, once September gets here, it’s time for Legtember, brother.

If you want in on that, go here => LEGTEMBER: Make Leg Day Great Again.

Thanks and all the best in your training.

August of Arms 2017 Pre-Test Results

August 4th, 2017

August of Arms 2017

I completed my August of Arms Pre-Test Results this past weekend. I thought I’d share them with you. The idea is to improve performance on all 4 of these events by the end of the month.

August of Arms Pre-Test #1 – Close Grip Bench for Reps

I went ahead and did this one over, so it was more accurate. I used 255 pounds this time and actually got more reps than when I shot the demo video a week prior.

August of Arms Pre-Test #2 – Max Alternated Dumbbell Curl

For the first time ever, I successfully curled my dumbbells that are marked 85’s but actually weigh over 91lbs apiece. They are a tough set to curl, and I’m stoked to start off the month of Arm Training with a big lifetime PR.

August of Arms Pre-Test #3 – Max Triceps Push Down

This is really the only lift from testing day that I was disappointed with. I figured I’d end up over 150, but failed on 140 3 different times.

August of Arms Pre-Test #4 – Wall Curl for Reps

For this one, you take half your bodyweight or 125lbs – whichever you prefer. I chose 133lbs, mainly because it’s easy to load.

Overall, I’m happy with my testing. I’m really looking forward to this month of training, no doubt about. Lots of good things gonna be happening!

Stay tuned.

August of Arms 2017

July 27th, 2017

August of Arms

The Funnest Month of Training is Just a Few Days Away, Brotherrrr!

August of Arms 2017 has been updated and is ready to go.

This year’s program is totally overhauled, in an attempt to bring you the best version of August of Arms ever.

What started in 2014 as just “going to the gym and doing whatever random stuff I could think of,” has gradually evolved into a more and more purposeful month of training, which is also full of fun.

This year’s program is based around a new set of Test Lifts. I modified them this year for a few reasons:

  • feedback that I’ve gotten from past customers
  • changes that I’ve made in my training recently
  • to give a change of pace to those who have followed August of Arms the last couple of year
  • and I feel they match better to the goal of building BIGGER and STRONGER arms

The training you this month is based around improving your performance in the Test Lifts, helping you build bigger, stronger arms, and get the most out of your training, with purposefully selected exercises.

August of Arms truly is the Ultimate Arm Training Specialization Program.

To give you an idea of some of the new stuff I’ve got planned for you, I thought I’d post some of my own Test Lifts.

The first Test Lift I’d like to share with you is the Bodyweight Close Grip Bench Press. I plugged this one into the August of Arms program because for a time earlier this Spring, I did a mini-run at the 225lb Bench Press for Reps, like is done in the NFL combine. I liked it so much, that I built it into AOA 2017.

Bodyweight Close Grip Bench Press

Here is my official Pre-Test video for the Bodyweight Close Grip Bench Press.

Don’t worry if you can’t do your bodyweight on the Close Grip Bench. I go over some alternatives you can take in August of Arms.

I’ll be sharing more Testing Results as I complete the Pre-Test Lifts for August of Arms.

If you’re ready to build BIGGER, STRONGER Arms, then pick up your copy of August of Arms 2017 today.

All the best in your training.
