Hey bro! A friend of mine got one to work with me on strand pulling. Its pretty good. If you plan on making your entire workout but strand pulling i'd say definately go for it! I work on just 2 pulls the front pull and back press, and I am almost able to get a full front pull out of the 3 blue strands. Strand pulling has really helped me in my macebell swinging. I just did reps with my 70lb macebell. I will put up a strandpull vid soon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9xEXT4SBA4

HI Kevin,
no I don't just strand pull. I was wondering if anyone had the book
mentioned & whether it was worth adding to my library.
That was some hardcore mace swinging mate, I was impressed, that kind
of leverage shows you've got some strength overcoming those forces
when you swing something like that. For those who've not tried any
form of swinging [now that sounds rude :-) ] having the weight hanging
off the far end of a bar REALLY makes a massive difference to the
amount you can handle. Try this. Put a small disc on one end of a
barbell, now hold onto the other & try to lever it up. Too hard? Ok,
try to lever the empty bar up then...still tricky? That's the type of
forces you have to overcome when you swing those things about!
Awesome swinging mate & looking forward to the strand vid (put up a
link here when you get it up there).
All the best,

Pete
