Nice work, Anthony!  I also look forward to seeing your first #3 close video.  It is a wonderful, wonderful feeling.  Strong work on the Anvil Trainer too!  Is that the Delmar Carter version?  I don't remember if I had already asked you this question.


Thanks Ben! I'm gonna do some rep work with grippers next workout, and then following workout attempt the 3 again. I can't wait to close it, it's been my primary goal for over a year now!

The anvil is made by Chris rice and is slightly more narrow than the lbh. Great piece of equipment.

Today's training:

 

Grippers

Right: 1x2.5 130 20mm block set, 1x2.5 130 20mm block set, 4x2.5 125 MMS, 2xBBM 118 1'' block set

Left: 1x2 wide set, 3x2 wide set, 5x2 wide set, 1 hold with coc 2

 

Hub:

Right 1x52, Miss 53.25, 3x47, 4x42

Left Miss 49.5, 5x42, 3x43.25, 4x42

 

Plate Pinches (with pipe through holes)

Right: 4x4 tens +10, 8x4 tens +10, 2x4 tens + 16.25

Left 2x4 tens +10, 3x4 tens +10, 1x4 tens +16.25

 

Sledge Levers

All 4 directions with 8lb hammer, at assorted sizes of 12-14 inches out

 

Pretty good session today.  I didn't go balls to the wall on grippers because I've felt burned out on them.  Setting in my left hand felt much better today, although it was with a much lighter gripper.  So we'll see how that goes.  I'm cutting weight for the king kong and know from the past that my gripper strength suffers when doing so.  Fortunately, pinch and thick bar keep improving.  Got a nice hub PR today.  I lifted 5 pounds over my PR at the contest using Manna the Manna's hub, so I'm hoping I can continue that trend.  If I can break 60 at the KK, I'd be super happy about that.  Also, got some good PR's on plate pinches and levers.

Worked out with John Manna today in his home gym...great set up he has there.  We did a little bit of everything grip and bending related.  I just missed a 3 attempt again, got about 67 on 1hp, and 125 on 1 hand axle.  This was my first time training those particular apparatus's (apparatii?)  I also sucked on the hub and big horn today, hands were just not recovered from the last time I trained.  BUT it was a great time.  Got some pointers on bending, and I want to pursue the red nail after the king kong.  All in all I confirmed what I already know....I suck in grip and need to improve lol.

Do you even bend bro?
On mobile right now so can't really check past logs, but have you done any bending prior?

Hahaha no, not really. I bent a bunch of greens a few months ago. Manna kinked a yellow for me today and then I bent that, but I'm gonna have to work on flexibility in my shoulders. I need one of those awesome certificates hanging on the wall in my apartment

Don't get discouraged man. Working out with fellow enthusiasts will excelerate your progress. My numbers were depressing when I started.. It wasn't that long ago - success will creep up on you if you pay your dues and stick to the basics.

Thank you guys for the kind words! I'm gonna just keep powering through and staying consistent. If at the Kong Kong I can pull 70 on the euro and 135 on axle, I would be very satisfied.
And absolutely chez, that'd be awesome bro
