Heh..I am not going to race. One thing I found is that my body does not like to speed things up. I am going to reach my CCS goal for sure but it takes time.
With many downs there are ups and as long as those ups are carefully climbing to MMS-ing 170 lbs+ grippers, the CCS will come. I have done CCS#3 once and CCS vulcan level 15, but I just don't understand my body enough how I can consistently do it. Now I am just working on smaller goals, like the 1.5 inch Ghp block for my Ghp7 @ 155 lbs. (And that while I did minireps on my MM2 replica a little while back).
Taping it is also another thing. holding the block between the handles and than jerking and smashing it closed is one thing, keeping the gripper in one place and casually pulling the handles in is another thing. While normal things in daily life sure have their influence on my training, I just try to enjoy the ride with a little frustration here and there Keeps me sharp and in focus what I want to accomplish.
