I did one rep at 9kg today, will not be doing 20 anytime soon.

Don't sell yourself short, 9 is solid! :)

Sooo..... not that I have a vested interest or anything but how are people going with this nowadays?

 

I'll film mine on Sunday. No need to feel threatened though, at least not if they close the challenge within a few months from now. :)

I couldn't wait until Sunday. :)

 

 

15 kg with 80 cm between hands. I'm not sure but my elbow looks slightly bent on the first rep so I fixed it in the second.

 

I also dislocated my face. :)

Haha it was my absolute max. Back to training around 7.5 kg for some time now.

I've been working on the flexibility part rather than the weighted part after listening to one of Coach's interviews, and using a rubber band instead of a pole. It's a little more forgiving on the elbows.

Is it proper form to allow the lower back to arch when passing the bar over your shoulders towards your back?

Back from the elastic band to the pole. I was finding the pole gave me a left inner elbow twinge, but after reading one of Coach's posts, the pole helps with wrist rotation flexibility, so it has returned. I'm definitely getting more flexible, I'm down to 80cm between my hands. Last time I measured it was 86cm if I remember correctly. If I get a bit more flexible and I'll return to the weighted attempts.

I've been doing this as part of my daily stretching with weighted reps at 5kg (usually between 20-25 reps) where I transition back and forth around the nasty bit. My flexibility has improved to 71cm between hands, and I managed 11kg this morning. My technique felt a bit ropey but following on from two big training days, I'm probably not at my most fluid.

13 reps at 7.5kg. Moving on up. I'm beginning to think the Olympic bar will be within reach soon.

Stupid me skipped the dislocates all summer and came back very stiff. I'm using four kilos and slowly getting hands closer to each other. Been on it again for several months now. Some days are great, some not as great.

Hi Joakim. I'm the same. Some days I manage quite a few reps, other days less. The day before I managed 13, I'd only done 10. Then the day after, I did 15.

I managed 3 reps with the weighlifting bar yesterday. Unfortunately only the light one, which I think is 10kg. I'll take something to weigh it with next time I'm in.
