1-22-2010: REVERSE BENDING


1-22-10, Friday

REVERSE BENDING

-1/4″X7″ CRS to 60 degrees in 2 seconds. 4.5″X5.5″ pads.

-1/4″X7″ CRS to 71 degrees in 1 second. 4″X11″ pads.

-1/4″X6.375″ CRS to 66 degrees in 1 second. 4″X11″ pads. These pads seem to be the perfect mix of enough thickness that I don’t feel pain from the bar and they’re not absorbing too much of the force I’m putting into the bar. They’re about 7/8″-1″ thick when wrapped around a 1/4″ bar.

-1/4″X6″ CRS to 63 degrees in 1 second. 4″X11″ pads. Felt strong.

-1/4″X5.75″ CRS to 57 degrees in 2 seconds. 4″X11″ pads. Getting to the length that’s awkward for me. Don’t like anything below 6″ but I know that every once in a while I should do a few just to cover all my bases.

-1/4″X5.75″ CRS to 59 degrees in 1 second. 4″X11″ pads.

-1/4″X5.5″ CRS to 55 degrees in 2 seconds. 4″X11″ pads. Even more awkward of course.

-1/4″X4.875″ CRS to 55 degrees in 10 seconds. 4″X11″ pads. Extremely awkward at this length and I had to switch leads to get more movement on it. Eventually used my right index finger as a fulcrum on the bare bar…which was a bit painful.

*Overall Notes: Good workout. Not a hard workout since this was just run-of-the-mill 1/4″ CRS, but it served its purpose of keeping me in practice until my calibrated stock gets here.
