Billytheold said:No I didn't, but I took estimates of that cross your bearing and drew up some isometric comprehensives on AutoCAD. I then got some weights on the steel calculator from Portland I'm going to make it! I took an enlargement of you figuring your 5
Feet 9" I'm hoping and most of that stock is solid. It's got to weigh in the 400 range. Could you give me some history about that cross mate? It looks like it can stand on its own. I want to be able to add weight on mine maybe thanks

Im 6'4" and the cross weighs around 200kg. It is made from steel bars welded together and yes it does stand on its own.

It belongs to Mark Lawson. Im sure he is on here and could provide more detail.

Finally got the chance to try this out last night, Did a lot of cleans and explosive stuff.

Surprisingly good actually. ill be getting another one I think and using them in place of sleeves.

Spoke to the UK seller and he recons the smallest hammy band would do the trick so ive ordered one and will see whats what.

Nice one lads, Cheers.

I did wonder about the hammy band. Looks like it would be too big, I need something pretty snug that not going to turn my lower leg blue! Seems like theres a need for a couple of sizes between the largest cuff and smallest band IMo.

Thing said:I have the ones for the forearms and use then round the base of my knees. Seem pretty good do far.

Nice one! Blue or red ones?

What size did you get and what do you measure around your knee where you wear it?

Has anyone got any of these compression cuffs / hammy bands as designed by Mark Bell?

Been having a look into them and they seem like what I need, but the sizing just seems odd. I want to use on my patella tendon below the knee and measure at 17.5" around there. The bloody compression cuffs only seem to go to 14" though? I've seen the likes of Bell/Wendler/lilliebridges/etc wearing these things on there though! and surely they cant have legs that small?

Does anyone have them? what's the sizing like?

yeah its what everyone keeps saying to me. problem is I feel I have spent the last six months working specifically on my squat to the detriment of other lifts and the next three months were meant to be giving my body a break from higher frequency squatting!!!! Happy

I've learned its a very tricky bone if its broken. Arthritus is common following a break. If I could go back and stay off my bike for a few more weeks I would. It really is horrendously painful at times. tight as f**k wrist wraps help but often it can be completely debilitating and holds me back on the pressing and grip work.

Go get it x-rayed, Until then its just guess work.

snapped mine clean in half about 15 years ago its now arthritic and hurts to do anything, especially pressing. Nothing anyone can do about it.
I blame rushing to get back out on my bike instead of letting it heal.

Don't rush back!
Spend the time getting a huge squat instead.
