Today:

DBPress: 98# 5 x (1,2)

PU: BW+57# 6,5,4,3,3  < these seem to have sprung back to life.  Hoping to get back to 7 and progress to 8.

DL: Sumo Axle (mixed grip) 425# 2 x 5

Also did some thumbless Fat Grip BB Holds: 225# 3 holds around 20 sec. each 245# 3 holds around 9 sec each  < don't remember exact numbers but have them written down in my paper log.  Just too lazy to go find it at this hour.  :sleeping:

Thanks Jason!  Progress has slowed, but it's progress nonetheless.

sorry for the sporadic updates.  hoping to post more grip workouts as I'm learning new things.  Had a revelation of how my thumb works, and how I should position my hand on the TTK.  Have also been seeing good gains on and as a result of doing thumbless fat gripz holds for time.  

 

Today:

Bench: 135# x 10; 225# x 5; 295# 5, 4 (had a leg cramp that prevented a 5th rep), 3, 3  

Back Squat: 135# 2 x 10; 225# x 5; 245# x 5;

Grip:

2HP - shallow hold 173#;  6 x 3  <- experimented with having hands wider apart for the shallow hold (shallow hold to avoid bleeding thumbs)

DB Press: (1,2,3); 4 x (1,2)

PU: BW+57#  6, 6, 4 1/2, 4, 3  < got a little sloppy on the third set.

Thanks to work, didn't have time this evening for DLs  :angry2:

Yesterday:

 

Got a bit sick in the afternoon.  After it worked it's way out of my system, and I took a nap, I did some light work and some grip.

 

Wide Grip Bench: 135# 3 x 10; 185# 3 x 10

Gracie DB: Got a few full lifts with my right hand, and then mostly worked on holds with one finger on the globe, for as long as I could stand - 6 reps of this both sides.  Took a few times to figure out how best to hold it to avoid the bell getting support from the thigh, etc.

50lb blob: Got good lifts (about 5 or 6) both hands, once I warmed up.  Had a few hops at the start and at the end.  Going to start working the 50# hex blob into this.  50# hex is close to coming off the ground.

JM Presses: 135# 2 x 10; 185# x 10

Glob Gripz BB curls: 85# 2 x 10; 105# 2 x 7

Did some sledge sup & pro work, and some front & back levers.  Choked 8lb hammers.

Today:

DBPress: 98# (1,2), 4 x 1

PU: BW+57# 7,6,5,4,4

Dimels: 235# +40# chain  2 x 20, conv, oly

 

Some Mormon boys stopped by on their bikes while I was warming up.  They started asking me what I was doing, so I told them.  I told them "I am going to lift that 98# db", and I asked them if they wanted to try.  Their response was, oh sure, I can lift that.  I said "over your head with one arm?".  So with two hands they each managed to get it up to their shoulder.  Which is pretty good, considering it's a 2" handle.  The Gracie was a few feet away, so I showed them how to lift that and both of them were floored by how hard it was to pick up.  They were like "oh, so you don't go to a gym", and I said "nope, I got all sorts of neat stuff in my yard."  Then I took them over to the atlas stones, and they were a bit disappointed it was so hard to grip the light one.  I think the next time they come back, I'm going to introduce them to some bending and sledge levering.

They were going to offer to help me do yard work, but they quickly came to the realization that I probably don't need any help.  

 

If they get too pushy I will just offer to take them to downtown Phoenix with me to go find a random homeless guy on the street, and buy him lunch.

So far today:

Bench: 135# x 10; 225# x 5; 295# 3 x 5  < PR - think I'll try for 4 x 5 next week, and then go for 305# after that...

 

I think Zercher squats are on deck after work related activities.

Today:

DB Press: 98# (1,2,3,4) 4 x (1,2,3)

Grippers: worked up to 20mm closes of the #3 righty.  finding 20mm is slightly more difficult than parallel recently.  

Dynamic Bench: 155# + grey bands: 3 sets of 3 grips x 3 reps  < not as snappy as I would like to see, so going to warm up more next time, and stay at this level of resistance

Dynamic Pinch: 15# 10 rbh, 2 levels; 20# 10 rbh, 2 levels;  tried 25# today, but was too smoked after events earlier in the day

Also did some stretches/calf raises/heel lifts to ward of PF.
