I am not doing a specific program now for pressing

 

Just keep on pressin' whatever feel right. Now that your shoulder feels better your numbers will go up.

 

 

Tough to put in extra eating stuff when I speak with clients a lot

 

How about protein bars? They are very easy to eat while on the road or whatever. Will give you a decent amount of extra protein and calories. http://www.bodyenfit...hey/eiwitrepen/ They have a lot of stuff to choose from, including high protein bars, cookies, muffins and crips. Will cost you though...

Yeah...I don't want to spend that much money on supps, I really want good food, veggies and stuff first. I do use a proteinshake in the
morning now since two weeks, with creatine monohydrate added. On office days I have no problem adding an extra meal but last week I wasn't much around at the office.

Might be better To use a long lasting protein shake(one with a good mix of fast and slow proteins)in the evening instead. In the morning your better off with carbs.

Busy week, grippertraining in between. Going to focus a while on wider sets, making the 2.5 a little bit more my b.tch. Also, because I won't be hitting harder grippers as much, I can probably speed up my recovery a bit. 

 

After warming up:

 

IM2.5 CCS x 1 mashed the handles; 

 

2 x 'dropping the set' (own invention. little bit. variation on the CCS followed by 20mm blocksets) 

IM#3 (filed, 142lbs) CCS close, opening up, 1.5" blockset close, opening up, 20mm blockset. First set felt good, second set I missed the 20mm blockset. It's hard to feel with a filed gripper. 

 

Few attempts to no set my hardest 2.5. This will be my first goal. Getting more familiar with no setting this 2.5. Doubles would be nice. 

After this, no set my BBGM (filed, 137lbs) 

 

Letting the thickbar go for now, I noticed that this is where my strong points are but it's nibbling on my gripper recovery.

BW dips 5 x till i rep before failure (which is not that hard given my 'dipstatus'); 

Push ups; 

Neutral grip pull ups; 

Assisted pull ups with feet on barbell in squatrack; 

Biceps. 

 

Can't be bothered to train legs at the moment. Training is not consistent enough for that. Sunday grippers.

Ok so I was working at home today, typing away and my wife just had called me for lunch. We just started eating and I see this delivery bus stopping by our house. Deliveryman gets a package out and walks to our door. I asked my wife if she ordered something. Nope. The man gave me the package and I saw it was from Cannonpowerworks, addressed to me. Again: HUH. So I opened it up and found a Rolling Thunder...!? Looked through the papers and initially missed a paper. 

So I send a message to Kristy Cannon if she knew what was going on....but almost immediately I also thought of Nathaniel Brous...this man came up with evil plans before...so I send a PM through Facebook...and yup.

 

Than I also found the letter that was included....! 

 

Crazy stuff.
 
This calls for a grip gathering this summer where it will be covered in beer and chalk. At least chalk than. 
Thank you so much guys for this gesture, I really don't know what to say and was utterly, utterly surprised.  Artee, RoyZ and Grind, we should hook up this summer, and pay tribute to these awesome guys! 
 
As plans are, we hope to be able to make a trip to the US in 2017 and I really hope to shake hands with some of you guys. As everything permits, we are planning to visit Nate's place somewhere in that trip. Plans are made very carefully, since a family trip is pretty expensive. Saving our ass off really at this point. And now we HAVE to haha

That really is a great gesture man.
