It's a shame David has to go through this long process until ge gets to grippers thats even a little challenging for him. At this rate it will take at least 1-2 years. There will be risk of injury or lack of motivation during the wait
@Buccos1 a month or so ago I tried a hit on a red and put a wobble in it and a little less than two weeks ago, @Stanley sallee pre-kinked a red for me and I was able to finish it without much problem. As @Horrido says, getting through the kink is the toughest part for me. After that, I can get through the crush pretty easily.
Pretend it's a "feature" lol. There's a brand called Vatiz that sells grippers that have one handle that twist. Seems like a novelty to me, but I guess it could induce a little extra difficulty to overcome.
Been working with a new Ironmind Pinch Block. Love it! Look forward to setting up some pages dedicated to it in one of my grip journals that I write prs and personal bests in, the first workout I did with it I hit 56lbs microloading. I wipe it clean after use, been doing holds at lockout as well as reps to grease the groove and whatnot
This year I’d like to re-attempt a blue nail personal best, as many reps as possible in one go. I’d like to bend to completion above 60 blue nails in one go. No rest in between, then when I fail I stop. I still measure each one and count only the ones that are totally completed. This is mainly for testing purposes
Been doing extra work at the start of my Trilobite sessions, for instance I did 65lbs for 116 reps. I go up and down a ladder system usually but sometimes I stick to lighter weight, lighter than this weight
