Yesterday's workout:

Grippers
Right: couple close misses with the 143 coc3, close miss 138 gm 20mm block set, 2xbbsm 128 MMS, 1x2.5 130 MMS, 1x2.5 125 block set

Left: 3 singles and 1 miss bbm 118 MMS, trex extended handle work

Wooden block 2hp
1x137.5, 12x110, 7x120

Hub
Right 4x44.5, 5x42, 4x44.5
Left 1x44.5, 7x39.5, 3x40.75

Another weight PR on wooden pinch and some rep pr's on hub for the order in which I performed them. I'm finding it really tough to get the 3 closed on camera. I think just by myself without the camera it goes down fine because I'm missing by about 1 or 2 mm. My filming technique is horrible. I think it's time I find an hour to sit down and watch john McCarter's tutorial on YouTube.

Have you closed it off camera? If not, I would just try without the camera because it may be messing you up. Closing it off camera will give you confidence and then you can get a close on camera after.

I haven't man. I've been pretty much doing it on camera because I want to have the memory of the first close to be permanent on video lol. I'm gonna upload a screenshot of my closest attempt yet.

This is my best attempt so far. I've been getting this close with the last bunch of attempts and just want the damn gripper to shut already

That's miles away from a close!

Also, the close should be explosive and fast.
Never squeeze it shut slowly.

Thanks guys! It's as close as it's gonna get without being closed, I think I'm gonna have to do as peter said and just go totally ape crazy to get that last millimeter LOL.

I appreciate the support! You guys know I've been killing myself with grippers for over a year now with no breaks, and I want to get the mm0 so I can take a little time off grippers to pursue other projects, like the red nail. But I'll still be hurting the grippers, probably just one workout every three weeks or maybe as a third exercise in a grip workout instead of first

Today's training:

 

Squats, no belt

10x245, 6x275 3x295  None were to failure.  Feels really good to be doing this lift with no belt and i'd like to continue.

 

DO static holds

2 holds 10 seconds with 325, 1 hold 30 seconds 275

 

Incline hammerstrength press

8x100, 8x120, 5x115 per side

 

Hammer grip pulldowns

6x200, 5x210, 10x190

 

Seated overhead barbell press

4x145, 12x115

 

Standing dumbbell hammer curl

3x50 3x50 7x45

 

Lying ez bar extensions

Not sure how much the ez curl bar weighed.  what does an oly sized ez bar weigh?  Either way, 10 and then 13 x 25 on each side

 

Anvil trainer

Right Hand 8x135, 1x160, 1x161.25, 1x165

Left: 4x135, 1x145, 1x146.25

 

Blobs

Right 10x35lb, 3x35 using thumb on round side, 4 second hold

left 9x35, 2x35 thumb on round side, 4 second hold

 

Damn good workout.  The PR's are continuing, despite me losing weight.  I attribute that a LOT to drinking a crapload of water, as that is the only real thing I have done different for this cut as opposed to other cuts I've done in the past and lost strength.  I got a video of the 161.25 anvil trainer lift, but not the 165.  Quite frankly I didn't think I'd get 165 and decided not to film, but lo and behold the sucker went up.

Holds w/ pinch training are the way to go... Been doing them myself and my pinch has never felt stronger. Pinched my fitness gear 45s last night, a couple years ago I thought they were unliftable. Wide and slick at 3" I finally got them on my last night in my Dayton house. Pinch is all about tissue adaption and no better way to stimulate that adaption than by holding for time. Plus it saves your skin by doing less picking up and more holding. Ill put up the video sometime when I'm in wifi.

Congrats on the wide 45 plate pinch? That's an elite feat that not many attain. I've always said pound for pound you're one of the strongest grip athletes.

I'm starting to see that holds are the way to go. How long do you think a hold should go before failure for building strength instead of endurance?

5-15 seconds depending on the weight. Change it up often. Throw in some longer ones occasionally as well.
