Came home from work and immediately went into gripwork. Coming days I have not much room to do griptraining and that makes me also a bit rushed mentally. Mostly not the best sessions but that's the deal with life. 

Monday a good backmassage, looking forward to that.

 

After warming up with Vulcan and BW squats:

 

Several sets of double CCS attempts IM#3 (142lbs), but I wasn't on my best strength today. Got the first rep, but just, second reps misses, 

BBE hold attempt with dogleg much further behind; 

 

Lefty in the meantime many sets of dumbbellifts with FG Extreme @50kg. 

 

Pullingwork/bicepcurls with Manusgrips (blue) attached to V handle, keeping the handle upright, pulling a loadingpin up with carabiners in the bottomcorner of the handle, instead of through the hole. This also hits the Radial wrist position and moving. Very tough also on the biceps brachi next to the elbow. Went from 30kg down with dropsets; 

 

Standing wristcurls in front of me DO in the squatrack. Flexing the wrists and keeping the wrist in the highest possible flexed position for at least 2 seconds per rep. Dropsets from 90kg and down. 

 

Thumbscrews on Vulcan, couldn't hold a pen anymore after this.

Some testing of cold CCS strength, since I am resting from other training this week.
With cold I mean just a few light closes with my Vulcan and no other CNS activating stuff.

3 x 1 IM#3 CCS attempt, all miss, very near few mm (153 lbs cpw)
1 x 1 IM#3 CCS close or very very very near (142 lbs cpw)

The dogleg is just that much more further in my palm. That's the whole thing. Just need to recalibrate my hands.
Saturday or so I will concentrate on closing power.

Bought a pair of squatshoes! Adidas powerlift 2.0.

Good on the shoes! Ive been using them too since a few months. Definitely nice for squatting and bench, and all the grip stuff. DLifts I still do bare footed.

I'm also a low bar squatter. An elevated heel did not work for me because when you squat low bar you normally don't want you knee to be pushed forward. A low bar squat is hamstring (posterior chain) dominated and to maximum hamstring force you need to lengthen the hams. An elevated heel prevents just that to happen.

A solution for this is to create a more hybrid style squat. A bar position in between a low bar and high bar position so you can maintain a more upright position. It creates different bio-mechanic patterns but these are more ideal when you squat with a high heel.
