    I know it doesn't seem like alot on this forum. But I hit a big milestone for me. I was able to DB Flat Press 100lb's for 7 reps. Thats a bigggg deal for me because I ussualy stick to BB for stability reasons. I just started to go to DB the last few weeks because my wrist is feeling slowly up to par. It still has limited motion, but once I try to hold a position and not let it move around, its pretty strong.

    For those who didn't know about 2 years back I shaddered the shit outa my knee and wrist , forearm in a motorcycle accident. Since then I have limited motion and strength in my left wrist.

    For those who want gore here is a recovery pic (Maybe Work Safe?)

    Yup Harbingers gloves with wrist wraps. I need to replace them actually, they are getting to loose are starting to tear. But very good wraps , they keep my wrist very stable.

    Where my forearm and hand connect, that is allign with my nipples/chest. From all the videos Ive seen thats deep enough, if it was a bar it would be about a 1/2 inch off my chest. I think its a flexability issue? What is everyone else doing?

    Good job man. It makes the accomplishment all the more impressive that you are coming off of some very serious injuries :bigthumb::bigthumb:

    Crashed a race sports bike , at 108 mph, rolled about 208 ft into forest area. Shaddered my knee, and my wrist/forearm.

    Its funny when I returned to the gym after the accidents I was like machine benching 75 lbs or so because I couldn't even stabilize 75's on a regular flat BB bench. I was also 1/4 squatting the bar lol. Flexability and strength have really come back, I passed the 405 squat a while back, and my DB work is getting higher. Fun times. My gym supervisor thinks im nuts, I go there and workout and have fun for like 2 hrs.
