      • Today was the first time ive ever focused on the RT.. I deadlifted with Straps first then went straight to the RT due to limited time in the gym today.

        Was very happy. Hit 232 with both hands then 242 with my right pretty easily.. got 252 off the ground but could not quite hold onto it. I suppose 250+ is right around the corner.

        Ive decided that after my Strongman Competiton on Feb 19th im actually going to make Grip my focus for a while and all of my other lifts will be my accessory. My body is feeling rather beaten up and id like to make a run at this grip stuff for a while. So I guess Grip and Throwing will be my main focuses.

        232 Both Hands

        242 Right Hand


        • bad ass stuff, you are decently close to the record:

          * if that is still the current record.


          • Yaaaa... 301 is a beast of a pull though. Im gonna start focusing on this now.


            • rolling thunder is the 1 habded thing right? i dont have the specific equipment but i tried one amr deadlifts with a bar & got 165. felt a hard pull on the biceps tendon. should you have strong bis for one arm lifts?
