      Me too. I find this has the best carryover to other physical endeavors.

      Great session. You are getting better at plate curls. I stayed with a 10kg olympic plate for months until it got really easy. The first time i thought my wrist would snap. Now they dont budge. They have really increased my finger strength and thumb pad size as well. Keeping going with reps and volume until you can easily get over 10 reps. Then maybe add microplates or a 1.25kg on top. With Having 2 plates to pinch then curl you have to squeeze more to keep them from slipping. Great fun though.

      As things have begun to settle down on an emotional level across the country regarding COVID 19, I would like to share my experience. I am a respiratory therapist at a large hospital in Texas. Over the past few months I have worked nearly exclusively in "COVID ICU". My job involves caring for intubated patients and managing their ventilators settings. What is particularly striking about COVID 19 is its virulence. I have seen healthy men in their 50's with no comorbidities go from pacing their rooms, talking with family members on the phone, to intubated (on life support) in a matter of 24 hours. As expected, I have also seen sick elderly patients fall ill very quickly. The rapid influx of ventilated patients at my facility has been shocking. Critical care staff, many of whom have done this job for over 30 years all claimed this virus is one of the most alarming things they have ever seen. Patients don't just get this hypoxic and crash so fast with the flu or anything else that I have seen.  It is disconcerting that people across all walks of life have required intubation due to Covid 19. Notice I have not mentioned death numbers yet. That's because, as most of you know the death numbers come primarily from the elderly. So why the concern if the vast majority of us will be fine in the end? A problem many hospitals have faced during this pandemic is a lack of critical care staff. When a patient requires intubation, a basic nurse or doctor will not suffice to care for the patient. The patient is going to need skilled healthcare workers at their side 24/7. When skilled workers are in short supply, what happens? You get intubated by a dermatologist, or a resident does the best they can to write orders for you. You see how this can be problematic? Lets imagine a new virus, Covid-20. Thank god Covid-20 has a 0% death rate. Unfortunately everyone who gets the virus has to be on a ventilator for at least 10 days. Once you are able to come off the ventilator, you quickly recover and can go home. You can imagine the strain this new virus would place on critical care staff. The patients should live, everything should be fine, provided the staff is competent enough to care for the intubated patients. I wanted to share this side of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is not always about death numbers. Many patients who require intubation and extended ICU stays develop ICU psychosis and lasting PTSD.  For what its worth, I think its time to open up the country. I am not going to stand in the street and scream at you for not wearing a mask. Please understand that the vast majority of critical care staff have no control over what the hospital bean counters call a "COVID-19 related death". If it means anything to you, my hospital has tied the most number of ventilated patient's it has ever had since opening in the 1960's. That alone should suggest that something is going on here.  I certainly don't intended to stir the pot anymore or spark a debate. Just want to highlight that a lot of people seem to be getting intubated (not dying) due to this virus, that's all.

      Been mainly messing around  with the pinch block today. First I work on grippers, then the pinch block, then the Trilobite,I usually try to get a type of PR but for now I’m still getting novice gains. I’m doing previous 1rm for reps now so we’ll see, the initial impossible feel of my top set in the beginning of pinch training is going away and I clean it well like all my implements as well.

      Incorporated the Ironmind Block into my daily routine. Pretty fired up about grip in general but because the blocks difficulty for me I kinda want to specialize in it and devote more energy to it, it’s barely been used but that’s changing. Figured I’d log it here today since i enjoy using it so much, my numbers since getting it, I keep it clean cuz I want the most out of it. Here’s the numbers nothing special,some were max effort some were not
       
       
      5lbs: 32 reps

      15lbs:32 reps
      20lbs: 126 reps
      25lbs: 32 reps
      30lbs: 32 reps
      35lbs,40lbs, 45lbs, 50lbs, 55lbs, and 60lbs I kept to 1 rep, I’ll bring those up

      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
