Splitting training up in CCS work with the Vulcan and MMS work with TSG's. 

That way CCS works my sweep much better and the heavy MMS work will go to once per two weeks. This is a good spread. 

 

Today: Warmup up to #3 wider set than parallel. 

            1 x level 13 CCS close;

            2 x level 14 CCS close (singles); 

            3 x level 15 CCS, missed the 3rd by a little bit. Got my wife to film it since I needed my concentration on the close but due to fatigue the handle started                                          to slip. 

 

            1 x MM2 replica 1.5" block set. Close/just missed, couldn't tell. Hands were getting tired. Wide sets are demanding for me. 

 

Wristwork for extensors, standing with light barbell; 

thumbwork with David Horne's thumbscrews, holds with Vulcan and orange spring.

Tuesday: Close grip benchpress with thickbar; 

                Skullcrushers with EZ bar; 

                One handed tricep pulldowns with thick towel attached. 

                Ab wheel and legraises. 

                Thumbwork with thumbscrews attached on Vulcan with orange spring. 

 

Tonight:  Lots of sets barbell rows, got reminded of this exc. by the videos of Paul Savage and it works and feels great. My right arm has   a little bit aggravated lowerarm/elbow which I can feel when flexing my bicep. It's an old problem and I need to be careful with it.              

It doesn't affect my griptraining however. 

 

Thumbwork with Vulcan and thumbscrews.

Did a lot of work around the house today but still wanted to do some gripperwork, since tomorrow I won't have time for that. One of the harder things to do is still leaving them grippers alone for a week. 

 

Note to myself: Did a lot of pushing exc. this week and also today I did shoulderpresses for firing up the CNS. I am rediscovering the Vulcan gripper and

I noticed immediately when I got to the heavier sets that the combination kills my setting strength. With tsg's maybe not so much but the Vulcan is a beast to set.

 

After warming up:

 

Ghp7 @ 155 lbs MMS close; 

Ghp8 @ 176lbs deep set closed (PR so to speak of); 

Vulcan level 18 deep set closed, could have been a better close but I fumbled around with the set. Complete challenge for me. Need to work on that; 

BBE @ 169 lbs deep set and hold for time (5 secs. at least, can't tell because of the intensity I squeezed with); 

IM#3 few closes. 

 

My strength quickly depleted but I think that's because of the other work I did today.
