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

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.
