Remember, most of Smitty's videos include a mini-article over to the right under the description on the actual youtube page. Click inside the video pane and it should take you to the youtube page. If you don't see much in the description, click "more" and the mini-article will appear.

Check those videos out on youtube, subcribe to his videos, rate them, and then get your ass back here and comment.


P.S. I messed up my last post. Below it should say that Goody levered a 12-pound hammer. That dude's got some skills, brothers.

Goody's on the Comeback Trail

Goody's been having some wrist and hand issues lately, and by the looks he is finally getting it back to near 100%.

Goody levered an 8-lb hammer at the World Series of Grip back last March and it was no problem. If he can stay injury free, I think he can do very well in the 07-08 Grip season.
