  • I will definitely try that Sbaguru, once again it's all in the wrist, funny enough when I done the challenge I didn't get the pain in the wrist but was more intense in the shoulders...watch this space, may give a try on the weekend..keep up your great work, big fan of your sheer hard work and dedication mate..

  • Excellent job Ged, as you have done in all your other events, you should redo with palms facing the other way as in the demo as it is less stable, much like your 180 degree tricep dip. You will certainly still be on top.
