Ok,I just want to share my training results as up till now and further with you lot. I had a big deal of help from the gripboardpopulation and from reading from the internet, so if anyone can benefit from my log, why not. 23 august this year I shut my #3 deep set and captured it on cam. I did it a couple of times earlier, but from there I seemed to be consistent every training. From there, my goal was and is to close the thing CCS ironmind rules and certify later on. I first want to focus on grippers and from there I want to train open handstrength and supporting strength. With the goal in sight, I focus on grippers now. I started in 2008 with the #1 and #2 being my first grippers and I could close them both right out of the package (#2 but just, but it was closed). From there I bought the #3 and was amazed by the difference in resistance. From there I would try every training method I read about and would do that for almost every day. yes í'm addicted. NO GOOD. Why it took me almost two years to figure that out, dunno, but it cost me a lot of lost time in progress. Since my campingvacation this year without any grippers with me, I was amazed what two weeks of complete rest did! That's for the intro, from here I'll start describing my training and start with my log. Sorry for the long post, but it will give you an idea of my situation. I now train one session heavy and then take at least 4 days of rest. Works best for me. I also bought and read KTA, it's a very good Ebook with the most techniques covered. the high workload didn't work for me at this point, but the techniques did. Also I read a lot from articles on the net, mostly from guys who are also active on this board.
