    I could use the school gym since it is free. It would be less thatn 20 minutes from my house. GnP told me about some strongman groups in the area but I forgot who they were.

    Ceaze, cave, chris. Have any ideas?

    Close to Fresno, CA. is the Hog Pit, which is 2 hours south in Bakersfield. However, it's a private gym (read here, no spandex) and is by invitation only. Check with Ken Wheeler at Wheeler's Fitness (661) 834-6305. It would help to bring a nice pork roast or a large tray of mac&cheese, when making your request.

    edit: nevermind, i missed that it's 2 hrs away

    I kept telling you but you wouldn't listen...

    Don't take more than two Animal Paks or you're gonna get kicked out for mauling someone.

    ...But you didn't listen.

    Start with one higher than you can close. we'll just say you can close the hg150

    Monday: 8-10 reps with the HG200. Doesn't matter how close it is to being shut, squeeze it and hold it for about 2 seconds past the point you know the handles arn't moving anymore.

    Tuesday: Samething

    Wednesday: 5-8 reps with the HG150 holding it shut and as tight as you can for 10 seconds. I would encourage you to file the handle down a little bit too. Just create a bit of an angle on one of the insideds of the handles

    Friday: Repeate Monday

    It's the APC Central California Open & Novice Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships on the weekend of February 25. I don't know where it is being held, but I can update you as the date gets closer.

    This could be the gayest meat evar :hay:

    everyone starts somewhere and just be consistant. I dont believe there are bad crunking genetics, just people who dont crunk hard enough.

    Well I couldn't close the #1 when I started. So I would guess the trainer which is about a HG150. But I never tried a trainer till after I could close a #2.
