    Didn't feel like we used one.

    Hmmmmmmm

    Edit: sorry. Not calling you out. Frustrated that it's different in different places.

    damn it I'm confused now. If it was a USAPL meet then you should NOT have been using a deadlift bar.

    Much more than 500 and you get a pretty good whip out of a texas power bar, though. They use a less stiff material than the comparable spec power bars.

    Just watched my meet video.

    545 no whip. Very minimal bend.

    590 bent a little more but stiff off ground.

    Yeah, this American armwrestler Jeff Dabe has even crazier hands, and he said he underwent a lot of tests and doctors couldn't find anything wrong with him.

    But big forearms gonna forearm....






    I saw a thread where an arm-wrestler had pictures taken comparing his hand size with both Cyplenkov and Dabe, and Dabe's hands were bigger. Crazy thing was, they've been like that since he was born. Baby pic:



    Dabe has been pretty much undefeated in all the regional comps he's done. I haven't seen him do many high level competitions. I saw Bagent "beat" him once, but if you follow arm-wrestling, you know that about half of Bagent's wins appear to be him just jumping the signal and starting before his opponent is ready.

    I'd believe it. His facial structure too - his brow line is a bit protruded.

    hmm...from wikipedia

    "Neanderthal anatomy differed from modern humans in that they had a more robust build and distinctive morphological features, especially on the cranium, which gradually accumulated more derived aspects as it was described by Marcellin Boule,[79] particularly in certain isolated geographic regions. These include shorter limb proportions, a wider, barrel-shaped rib cage, a reduced chin and, perhaps most notably, a large nose, which was much larger in both length and width, and started somewhat higher on the face, than in modern humans.[46] Evidence suggests they were much stronger than modern humans, with particularly strong arms and hands"

    have there been any studies on this lol

    Steve is pretty involved in what's going on. I agree that the meet director is the first step, but I think the fed. prez would want to know

    So may be good to get one for training purposes as the whip is harder for me.

    Train (at least mostly) with what you'll be competing with on the deadlift. If you train for the whip you'll perform badly on a stiff bar. I think there are benefits to the reverse, but I wouldn't train with a deadlift bar for stiff bar pulling.

    Just rest but if you must really insist on going, some light squats wouldn't be a bad idea.

All he does is forward the email to me so I can answer it. This introduces an unnecessary middleman and delays the question from being answered.

    8 weeks is a long-ass time to get ready

    unless you're really weak, in 8 weeks you won't get enormously strong(er), but getting ready to hit 3 singles at the best of your capabilities? definitely enough time

    I'm still really weak, but I've got some very small PBs in mind I'd like to hit. I'll see how I go over the next few weeks...

    any of you that hook grip. Do you do it more like the left side grip or the right side one in this picture?



    I have always tried to do it like the right side but I don't think I have big enough hands for that to make sense and should just grab it like the left side does. Is that a standard hook for people with not monster hands?
