Very very pleased with the arrival of my Dube cube from gripnbend. Very well made .. put together a loading pin on Saturday and looking forward to it becoming a regular part of my training moving forward. This week I plan on getting familiar with the stub .. the following week the coin and ball bearing after that. I'll train each portion of the cube in one week increments so I could benefit from progressive resistance and work on the proper technique for each at the same time.
Gripper training last week ending: 09/24/17
Isometric holds: (Monday) (heavy) 5 x 5-7 second holds with 5 minutes rest in between.
CC setting / Reps: (Friday) (light/medium) 3 - 5 sets x 8 reps. First rep is with a gripper that I can shut from a CC set, immediately followed by 7 reps from a parallel set. I emphasize speed and force when doing them and on the last rep of each set, I hold for a course of 3 while squeezing as hard as I can.
Gripper training this week ending 09/29/17
COC #3 attempts: (Monday) 4 sets x 1 rep. I'll get the handles as close as I can then force it closed with the aid of my free hand and squeeze very hard for a count of 3.
CC setting/reps: (Friday)(light/medium) 3 sets x 2 reps (CC set COC#2) superset with COC#2.5 X 3 reps from 20 mm done fast / hard squeeze on the last rep for 3 seconds.
I will alternate the two slightly different sessions to keep things fresh. I'll also experiment with the T-Rex gripper routine outlined by BenCrush to another member. It should fit right in with my second gripper session. I find the routine to be well thought out and sensible. I believe it could be of a great help to me and I'm thankful that he posted it.
Haven't been on for a while due to diabetes issues feeling better ready to get back into things last few days did some things and still had most of my grip strength still as I did but should be back if not better in a month or 2 wasn't a significant loss on some grippers down 1 mostly or to halfway closing the old bests
