Well this is the 4th week of implementing this crazy strongest range of motion hold for time lifts. It's honestly a MAJOR pain in the ass to put on and take off so much weight when I have a bunch of smaller plates. Very tedious. It is however paying off in my grip which is great. I will probably do a normal routine next time just to see where I'm at and might either go back to this or switch off here and there.
The GHP6 was a big milestone for me and now it's all about the #3 next!!! 2013 has been my year, My goal for grip was the MM0, Red Nail cert and Bastard. I've already knocked off those of those goals so really looking to make this a trifecta. I have 2 months if I don't count October.
***Bent a 7" (shiny) HRS 5/16 for shits and giggles, still got it!*****
L1x5, L3x5, L5x1
Having hit anything in a bit but this crazy static hold workout really paid off with my bench and squat numbers jumping a significant amount. Didn't do crap for my pullups really. Came within a few mm of my COC#3 so really hoping to get it done before the year is over. Insane jump on the Saxon Bar. I honestly have no idea how I hit 164. Vids below of some of the high lights.
104x5, 124x1, 140x1, 151x1 (all at 48mm), 151x1 (at 54mm, felt better)
Wrist Roller Partials
50x10, 100x5, 125x4, 150x4, 175x2
R: L1x5, L3x1, L5xF (not feeling comfortable at all and the wraps were loose)
L: L1x5, L3x1, L5x1
**Messed around with the sledge, nothing major.
1Arm DB press (on and off with fatgripz)
L: 70x3, 80x3, 1, 70x1, 80x1, 90xF (still not 100% and sore from when I first tried)
R: 70x3, 80x3, 1, 70x1, 80x1, 90x1, 100xF, 100x1
Huge gains in my axel progress! Just feeling good here. New PR and almost at that double body weight axel lift.
2HP is still lacking big time. I'd like to think it's because my Euro is new and only forced seasoned but that's an excuse. I just need to keep training and get better at it.
WD is starting to feel weird on my right side and not comfortable, wraps were loose but again something I need to bring back up to strength
1 arm DB presses are the SHIT!!!! Every year I look for that awesome grip or workout tool as a bday or xmas gift and originally wanted a circus Dumbbell for grip training. after reading and hearing they're not really used for that, and are more for strongman events, specifically the 1 arm db press I figured let me just try it. NOW I am in love with this exercise and able to completely justify this purchase!
133x10, 153x5, 183x1, 203x1 (felt easier), 223xF - Slight improvement with how PR felt but mentally psyched myself out....
92.5x6s, 6s, 95x5s, 5s, 5s - Good Improvement.
133x12, 153x5, 183x1, 223xF - Same improvement feel as Squats.
54x10, 104x5, 154x1, 1, F, 1 - NO improvement at all. Played with all different widths. Still feels very slippery. Might have too much rust still on the plates and needs to be cleaned from when I seasoned.
L1x10, L3x5, L5x2, L6xF - NO improvement at all. Still struggling with this.
30x1 - easy
35x1 - easy
40x1 - Got it both hands, not as good with the right but felt good.
40 +2.5lbs - Got it with left.
Initially went for static holds with Squats but wasn't seeing an improvement and couldn't lift my max from last week. Switched to regular squats but I think missing my mark screwed me up with focus. Frustrated with majority of this work although I was killing it with the blobs.
*********Started to feel really empty and got the shakes. Working out on just coffee with no nutrition. Might need to switch it up with a protein shake to start. Not really feeling this***********
Hub - 3rd workout where my Hub has been feeling weak. Not sure if it's because of what I'm doing before or maybe just need to give it a break and alternate with Anvil Training.
27.5x5L(4R), same, 3
Not a bad workout but not that great either. Need to add some fuel before these in addition to coffee. Coffee not really kicking in and 20 minutes in I'm starting to feel the effects of no nutrition. Was a nice change to not go for max attempts every time.
