    I wear neoprene knee sleeves, but when I do deads or WLing, I pull down to go over my shins. Should be better for grip. :yy:

    Did the bar seem thinner to you? I'm pretty sure the bars there are like 29-30+mm. This one is 28mm. Even better for grip.

    Any vids today?

    I meant it cut me on my right hand... I hook gripped it and forgot to position my hand in the right place.... cos a nice lil tear... need to file it down later. Hmmm didn't notice the thickness... it seemed heavier, more solid and smoooooooth as lube. Polish guy tried snatching with it... I had no clue wt to do with it... tried some 60kg clean after my DL's... but then felt faint and left.

    lol why not?? 4am is a good time to work... no distraction... there are people who bring sleeping bags and sleep under the tables... imperial ftw.

    I got comprehensives on 27th april - penultimate year... but they're a ***** cos u need to learn yr 1 - 3...... problem is I don't even know half of the yr 2 stuff ¬¬ fml.

    Are staying on to do another year?

    Lifters usually tape the hell out of their thumbs to hook grip. That must be the reason.

    I work at 4am, just not at college. I do it at home.

    I'm 2nd year.

    I think I'm one of the strongest in my year; that's pretty sad. There is one rugby guy in my year; all he does is bench sets of 100kg. He's been doing the same weight since last year. And he benches with his as about 30cm off the bench the whole time.

    I don't know if I'll be training at Ethos next year because I start my hospital rotations. St Mary's is the only hospital that has proper equipment. But they need to get a decent barbell.

    Was the bar already out or did you have to walk an old one up to the front and swap? lol

    lol hahaha really? you look older than 2nd year... I'm 3rd.

    I got the biggest Sq/DL in my year.... tho we have a BB or two who can outbench me ofc. Is 140kg clean Sam a medic?

    Is St Marys in twickenham the place where there are 4 oly platforms and oly bars and bumpers??

    I emailed the BWLA and they gave me some good info/phone numbers of people who coach in twickenham and in crystal palace... I intend to start Oly training soon... poss before exams, you should totally come.

    Had to walk to the desk to swap it out... felt pretty badass.

    No, Sam isn't a medic I don't think.

    St Mary's gym is in St Mary's hospital which is in Paddington.

    What Twickenham place is that? Are you talking about the boat house gym, I thought that was in Putney?

    nah.... st marys uni I think

    "your choice is Crystal palace, Woking, St mary's Uni at Twickenham or Sutton. One of our good lifters lives in Chelsea and trains at Crystal palace"

    I can forward you the contact details of the coaches there if you want... I intend to call them soon.

    There are good gyms in woking (surrey), twickenham and Crystal palace... all non imperial gyms.

    Apprently if you find and talk to coaches... the coaching is free as is use of some of the facilities.
