WU with facepull, bands and DB curls.
T-Rex spring 152~ 4x1 RH & 2 closes and 1 miss LH.
T-Rex spring 135~ 5x3 LH & 8x3 RH.
Vulcan "Hydraulic" close with 50 mm set - lvl 12 2x10 seconds.
Seated OHP - 5/3/1.
Lat Pull-down - 3 sets with good contact.
Sandbag squat - 3x10 I will do these instead of goblet squats with DB. They are more ergonomic and much safer, I also like how they feel. Need to work much harder to maintain good form. Got a really good deal on this bag, Rogue XL (100 kg) for two COC grippers.
I got 80 pounds for 15 reps the other day. First time using in ages. Definitely takes a couple of workouts to get back in the groove with it. More so Than most other implements. After that set of 15 I was useless for anymore. Burns you out quick. Got 90 for 3 reps after that set and I was toast.
I'd love to see an event like this, thick handled or otherwise. It offers benefits to promoters too: no (or few) weight changes and no ties. Similar to silver bullet I think it's more exciting for spectators too. It's more fun to cheer someone to hold one more second than to lift something that just isn't moving.
Closed the GHP 9 for 3 mms reps but was much wider than that per rep, this was more accidental than anything cuz it’d force my hand to widen and then I’d catch it and try my hardest to close it again. 3 reps so far but I’m more interested in training the GHP 8, I feel it’ll build my strength more than simply doing amrap or a lot of singles on the 9. Which is what I’ve been doing though behind the scenes there were many, many failures, but all you’ll hear from me is prs, I’ll try to get certed before long
Trained my left as usual but was doing some testing moreso than training but I closed the GHP 7 with my left. I knew it’d be hard for me but I think this is the biggest gripper I’ve closed for my left. Just some pics to prove to myself I’m not insane cuz I still held it in my hand after I was just holding it loosely cuz my grip was spent
