A fun competition, with a great group of guys, my personal highlight was setting a World Record in the #4 Silver Bullet Hold.

During and after the competition, several awesome feats went down, especially ones set by the Big Man from Norway, Eirik Bruun Ingebretsen.

Time Butler also brought up a couple of cool grip challenge items to try.

Here’s Tim’s half 70lb Globe dumbbell head, called a Glob.

Here’s Tim’s Half 120lb Hex with the handle still attached. When lifting a block weight with the handle still on (especially on the thumb side) it makes it quite a bit more difficult.

Thanks for bringing those up brother!

I’m pumped everyone was able to make it for this small, yet very fun competition.

All the best in your training.

Pain from Benching? Try the Dumbbell Crush Press

February 14th, 2017

How to Avoid Chest Pain from Benching

Every so often, my shoulders and pec tie-ins are sore, on Chest Day.

This kind of stinks, because one of my overall goals is to build my Dumbbell Bench Press to a set of 10 with 150lbs (which I fell very short on last year).

However, I found a nice variation that I can do without pain, and I want to share it with you today.

Pain in the Chest – Try This Benching Variation

Give this variation a try – it BLOWS the chest up BIG TIME and leaves your Triceps completely wasted.

All the best in your training.
