Today, mock comp at Chez's house 1hp 67 1 hand axle 135 Hub 50 (floated 55 slightly) LBH 135   Not too bad!  Well at this point I'm not gonna be getting any stronger, so it's just a matter of not injuring myself from now until then. 

 

Great training with you yesterday. Great numbers and contest adrenaline with definitely help.

Good work, mock comps help u prepare for the real deal

Thanks, Parris.  Absolutely...now I know where I need to start my attempts so I can get on the board with some points.

Have a nasty cold and I thought I could get in a workout today but after warmups I realized I was quite mistaken.  Could hardly breathe due to stuffy nose and my eyes were watering like crazy.  So i called it and went home.  Hoping to be able to get a session in on Wednesday.

Hopefully you can get some rest and slaughter it on Wednesday.

Trained grip last night:

 

Grippers: Don't quite remember exactly what I did.  The highlights were missing a coc 3 attempt, getting 2xBBSM 128 with 20mm block set, and off hand closing my 114 BBM with a block set as well.

 

Rolling thunder

Right: Four 10 second holds with 105

Left: Four 10 second holds with 105

 

Extensors

 

Not bad.  Was short on time as I got home from work very late, but I'm feeling much better and my cold is gone.  Gym tonight for a full body session.

Last night's session

 

Squats, no belt

10x255, 10x275, 2x295

Seated overhead barbell press 4x145 5x145 12x115

Chin ups 6xbw+50 3xbw+75 2xbw+75, 10xbw+50

Flat bench dumbbell extensions 3 x 8 x 35

Dumbbell preacher curls 2 x 10 x 25, 20x25

 

Excellent workout.  Squats with no belt are feeling better and better.  Didn't feel confident going for more reps with 295.  Didn't do any chest because I did some db flat bench presses a few days ago that I didn't log.  I should also note that I'm using my Sidewinder wrist roller every day to every other day now, as well as doing sledge stuff.  Just don't want anyone thinking I'm neglecting my wrists LOL

How do you like the sidewinder? Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow; I went with the pro extreme.

I have the same model; it's worth its weight in gold. I love it and can do so many things with it. Sometimes I leave the resistance low and crank out endless reps. Other times I'll make it so I can barely budge it and see what I can do with it. My favorite way to use it is in the screwdriver fashion

Haha yeah man it certainly isn't cheap. I paid around 120USD for mine. But you'll notice that a lot of guys sell their one wicked wrist rollers, but no one sells their sidewinders. It really just feels incredible to use. To make the blow to my wallet more bearable, I sold off some grip stuff that I wasn't using.

Last night's training:

 

DO Sumo Deads with Iron Bull 2.0s

6x255, 3x255, static hold 225

Thumbless grip barbell holds 225, 245 for time

 

Lying Leg curls

6x115 6x115 6x115 8x100

 

Barbell Flat bench press

4 sets of 5 reps 185

 

Cable row

10x170, 9x170, 8x170

 

Pull ups with iron bull 2.0s

12, 8, 8

 

Incline db bench press

2 sets 12 reps 70lbers

 

Cable face pull

20x150, 15x150

 

Cable pushdown 12x80, 8x90, 10x80

EZ bar curls 8x70, 7x70

 

Last training session before the contest.  I haven't done barbell flat bench in a long, long, long time but for whatever reason, I decided to do it.  I think it was because my grip was cooked after the deads and I didn't feel like walking from the dumbbell rack to a bench with 95lb dumbbells in each hand.  Gonna be taking it easy now until Saturday!
