Been a little bit since I updated but I've been training consistently.

 

I did grip the other day and closed my 134 Gm MMS for a few singles, and missed my 138 by a little.  Also new PR off hand of 128, that was really cool!

Also did shallow hub and maxed out at 39 pounds.  Some TTK afterward and then I bent 8 60D nails double overhand in singles.

 

Did legs Sunday, squats with 275 lbs, sumo deads high reps with 225, and leg extensions and glute ham raises.

 

That's basically the short notes on these workouts lol.

Did bending yesterday...

 

Bent down 2 reds to about 3 inches in 1.3 single IMP's.  Basically an IMP and a third of an IMP extra layer, so much thinner than doubles.  Crush still stopped me.

Then I put a nice kink in a 5 inch 1/4'' square.  No chance in hell I could crush that lol.

Some push ups to close the workout.

I'm pretty beat up.  Think I'm gonna take that week off now!

IMPs plus 1/3 is getting really close.  There isn't much difference between this and single IMPs.  At this point, most of it is just slight variations in grip and feeling.  Keep killing it!

Yeah man!  For some reason the extra third of a pad really makes a difference in feel to me.  Maybe it's simply a confidence barrier that I need to break through, but that crush is definitely still a problem for now lol

So since the last time I updated this log, I had a couple of pretty good sessions.  With grippers, I hit a PR of 128 SM with a ghp 1.5'' block set.  Trained legs, and also did bending on Saturday.  I screwed up a Red bend as it was off centered, bent an M in single IMP's, and then bent a bastard!  That was really cool.  The bastard was harder to kink than a red but easier to crush.  I am going to purchase a set of digital calipers and then submit a cert video.

Quick chest workout this morning

 

Flat barbell bench press

3x205 3x205 2x205

 

Flat dumbbell bench press

10x80 6x85 8x75

 

Seated overhead dumbbell press

8x55 7x55

 

Incline push ups

Multiple sets to failure

 

Abs

 

Was finally able to get in some overhead work with no shoulder pain today.  I have lost a lot of strength in that position from months of not doing anything with it, but will try to work my way back up slowly.

Still training hard and on schedule, just haven't really been into updating the journal.  How many times can I say "couldn't finish the crush in singles" lol.  When there is something worth telling you all about, I will be sure to post!
