Not a good one today.  Missed closing my Old #2 by 1/16.  Didn't wait long enough for hands to recover from last workout.  The gripper wasn't positioned right either.  Focus just wasn't there either.

Not to worry. Even David Horne must have bad ays and I know that my strength can vary.

You may also have been pushing hard on the full body workouts.

One tip, which I have had to learn the hard way is not to keep picking up the grippers (they sit on my sofa arm) while watching TV and having a few squeezes...

Mind you, this is how I do my gripper workouts. During the advert breaks.

Focus, I think, is one of the most importent aspects of the grip work. I also do very little by way of warm-ups but that works for me, it may not work for you.

Lastly, refering to chats about grippers varying in strength, I have also noticed the better knurling on the later grippers. This will make the hand nice and sore too.

Thanks for the advice.  I know everyone has a few off days.  The key is to realize why you are having them, I think.  In this case it was a lack of focus, I wasn't fully recovered from the last workout, and I didn't position the gripper right.  You are right about overtraining on the grippers.  I used to squeeze them everyday, it sure is hard to put them down.  I know better now and will correct my mistakes.  Thanks again.
