Wednesday

Played an absolute blinder today. A very, very good session. Following the announcement from Randall Strossen at Ironmind of a new certification scheme for his CoC 3.5 gripper in between sets of pretty much everything else I did today I did single after single (right handed) with Sam Solimi's (a newer model than mine) 3.5 Included was 1 a tad off with a credit card and then later on several very wide closes. Indeed I did not miss a single close. I noted 13 or 14 in total but may have missed a few.

Crush Grippers

After warming up in the usual way I worked on CCS and wide closes for the new IM (3.5) cert scheme with my right hand. As above I did at least 13 wide closes. I did an equal amount of attempts with my hard 3 (around 3.29 or thereabouts)

Leg Ext

80-kilos x 8 reps, 105-kilos x 8 reps, 155-kilos x 8 reps (stack and 10-kilos added)

Leg Curl

25-kilos x 8 reps, 40-kilos x 8 reps, 50-kilos x 4 reps (try adding a 2.5-kilo disc to 45-kilos next time)

Leg Press

foot plate x 8 reps @ leg, 120-kilos x 8 reps, 240-kilos x 8 reps, 560-kilos x 8 reps (could have been a tad deeper)

CG Bench

60-kilos x 8 reps, 100-kilos x 6 reps, 140-kilos x 3, 3, 3, 5!! Best yet.

Lat Pulldowns

70-kilos x 8 reps, 110-kilos x 8 reps, 150-kilos (stack and 10-kilos added)

2HP using 90-kilos disc

a few singles to warm up then using the buggered loading pin (the flanged end is broken off and it is a tube rather than solid) we (or rather I did) added 2.5-kilos a time thus: 90+2.5 x 1 rep, 90+5-kilos x 1 rep, plus 7.5-kilos x 1 rep and then adding 1.25-kilos (back load) I did 1 attempt (came up but not enough) x 1 and 1 solid rep. I then took the pin and 8.75-kilos in weights and scaled it at 10.3-kilos. So the last rep was a 90-kilo disc plus 10.3-kilos or 100.3 in total. I think, for now, that as much as anyone has ever done.

RT for fun

Sam wasn't done yet so I played around with 80+ on the light pin using a thumbless grip with either hand for a few singles for fun. As you do.

You must be thinking of someone else, the Mobster I know has flowers in every room in the house, does cross-stitch and knitting in the evenings and has a wardrobe full of Kylie Minogue's dresses.

I once saw him cry whilst watching an episode of Eastenders (the one where Peggy Mitchell broke a finger nail) and he hides behind the couch when the Dr Who music starts.

I would ask that you refrain from such insults - it upsets him greatly and when this happens he cannot concentrate on the things that mean so much to him - re-homing stray, unwanted kittens and saving snails that have become homeless.

Come to think of it, he and I have got so much in common - I must invite him over sometime to watch Bambi - but then I don't think that there would be enough Kleenex for men to soak up the tears!

Don't ever say such things again, or I may have to beat you to death with my hair dryer, or Mobsters bra.

Love and kisses to you all,

Laine

You must be thinking of someone else, the Mobster I know has flowers in every room in the house, does cross-stitch and knitting in the evenings and has a wardrobe full of Kylie Minogue's dresses.

I once saw him cry whilst watching an episode of Eastenders (the one where Peggy Mitchell broke a finger nail) and he hides behind the couch when the Dr Who music starts.

I would ask that you refrain from such insults - it upsets him greatly and when this happens he cannot concentrate on the things that mean so much to him - re-homing stray, unwanted kittens and saving snails that have become homeless.

Come to think of it, he and I have got so much in common - I must invite him over sometime to watch Bambi - but then I don't think that there would be enough Kleenex for men to soak up the tears!

Don't ever say such things again, or I may have to beat you to death with my hair dryer, or Mobsters bra.

Love and kisses to you all,

Laine

6 minutes and no Death threat - that's got to be a record!

You had better! Soaps - pah! :whacked

My mum, back in London but here next week, watches ALL of them and (good lord) some of the omnibus additions. Christ knows why. Thank god I have both my big screen projector brought when I moved here AND a tele upstairs. She's here for 4 days and the idea of having to watch some of the tripe called popular entertainment shows feels me with dread.

Friday PM

2HP @ 44mm

equ x 6 reps, plus 30-kilos x 3 reps, plus 60-kilos x 1 rep, plus 70-kilos x 1 rep, plus 75-kilos (skipped by 72.5-kilos by accident, didn't do me any harm) x 1 rep, plus 79-kilos (a PB I think) x 7 x 1 reps. It would have been 8 x 1 but the skin at the base of the left thumb peeled back. Looks nice n pink. I then weighed the set up at 102.10-kilos as is.

Steve, your knowledge is great and far more advanced than mine, to the point where I'm shaking before typing the following comment. :D

But I've read your log for a long time, and it seems to me that your right handed gripper strength hasn't improved much in the last two years or so. Of course, it was already great back then, and it has stayed great... but why no improvement? I know at your level is hard to improve, but then it hit me - do you ever train finger extension? (I don't remember seeing it written in this log). Some people swear that a muscle group could be limited by the opossed muscle group.... I don't know if it's true or not, but just food for thought. Congrats on 102.1kg x 7 singles.

Short answer: nope never have.

Slightly longer... in a quite un-modest way I've answered 'because I haven't needed to'. 3.65 in competition has, since 2004, with my right hand been enough. My left has shown improvement from 2.69 or so, through to 2.8, 2.96 and onwards to 3.29.

If I am 'on' or in the zone I plan to have a crack at the 3.81 at the Euros. However, getting a better gripper than anyone else etc etc is not the same as gamesmanship in doing enough to win. Potentially I could do 7.10 in total (3.29 and 3.81) but I'd hazard a guess I'll look at 3.29 and 3.65 as safe enough and then see what I feel like doing.

The same applies to the other lifts. Of course I'd like to raise my PB's and go further up the records list (110 2HP by end of 2008 for example) but a win is a win. I'm happy to, right now at least, contemplate being European Champion without necessarily doing it via PB's or records. I'd still be champion right?

Depending on how I feel - super strong hopefully - if I have spare attempts and the 3.81 is done then I may well have yet another crack at a 4.

Something David Horne nagged me and cajoled me about a long, long time ago. It wasn't enough to be, as I was, a 1 or two trick pony any more than it is to break records. I compete to win first and get a record second. Certainly now.

In the past I had questioned David on the choice of events he picked for competitions and I have had the same asked of me. It's a joy of being a promoter. David was ragging on me with the same (for fun) during the run up to the 2008 British. I replied - 'I'm now pretty good at EVERYTHING'. That doesn't mean outstanding or a record breaker but good enough to place well in most competitions regardless of what was chosen and by whom.

Obviously I can have a bad day and a bad day on grippers is a tad under a 3 left handed and 3.5 right. That puts me in around top 3 pretty much any comp you like.

However, for all my seeming arrogance you'll note that I constantly look over the whys and hows of what I do and pick at little bits and bobs. I MIGHT benefit from extension work but thus far...

Thanks for the reply, I understand now. Maybe if one day you choose to go after the #4 more seriously you'll do experiment with it? Who knows, but it is definitely not required to win comps.

I've just made a long post in reply to this, but I'm tired now. If it still makes sense in the morning, I'll post it then, in the meantime: Steve, you do more mental work than you let on, that's why I have such faith in you. Night

Every ounce of training I do is based on being motivated, driven or passionate. Paul Savage got 'the speech' on one visit.

Autoplus: I've asked Randall. It's up to him to give me the opportunity.
