Been a really long while since I was last active on the GripBoard - I had an accident in September and ruined by shoulder, which has not healed well at all and is still giving me trouble. Thankfully I now seem to be on the right track and have been able to start training again recently.
I lost a lot of strength, particularly my hands - I decided to deadlift for the first time in months and could barely lift 160kg. My legs and back felt plenty strong enough, but my hands just kept unravelling even with a mixed grip, not something I'm used to at that weight at all.
Because of my shoulder, the only training of note that I'll be doing anytime soon is lower body stuff. Since I stopped doing athletics in 2010 the discrepancy in strength between my upper body and legs/lower back has become a bit embarrassing - hopefully the next few months as my shoulder recovers (hopefully) will allow me to bridge the gap somewhat.
I'd like to hit 6 x 10 reps 100kg full-ROM (not quite atg) reps soon, and then I'll assess where to go from there. Dead-lift wise, think I'm good for 200kg+ for at least a single but until I sort my grip out it's hard to know where my base strength is. Would like to rep 200kg for sets.
Look forward to catching up on everyone's progress, noticed that Chez in particular has been killing it as always.
