I've done 35s with added weight.  45s are a long term goal of mine.

Ok, thanks. Andrew Durniat was talking about how he likes to do these at Gripmas. I think it may have even been you and me talking to him when he was talking about them. I need to try these out.

I think there's a chance you and I will be in the same weight class for your contest next month.

Hmmm.  Could be.  I'm shooting for the low 220s.

I don't think I've ever pulled more than low 70's on the IM hub. Sold mine some time ago as I rarely hub anymore and prefer to use actual plates when I do. Will have to see how my custom plate mount hub will carry over. :) I think John is gonna school us all.

Gonna be interesting for me. I took a 6 month layoff from grip and training after nationals, don't have a IM pinch block (using 4' long piece of thickwall 3x6 steel tubing and stacking plates on top on either end), Don't have an IM hub (home made one that bolts to plate stack solidly instead) and just made myself a anvil horn similar to the IM one over this last weekend and have never pulled on one before. I just hope to not embarrass myself too much. :)

I have zero grip gear outside of grippers. I sold all my stuff like a moron. Now i need to recover these items to get some training in. If I cant ill just be cheering you guys on. I really hope to make it, my wife’s medical issues are the only thing keeping from a solid yes.

I weigh 177 now; do you have a list of the weight classes?  I am looking to lose some weight for health purposes anyway (I'm only 5'6 so I'm on the heavy side for my height), and it might make sense if the next lower weight class is attainable that I shoot for that for February 24.

Got an IM block for xmas, ordered a hub and loading pin that will arrive tomorrow, and picking up Olympic plates this week also -- Never tried either but I love grippers and the two-hand pinch lifts, so I will like them as well.  I'm getting so into this grip stuff, it is addictive and yet healthy!

Why yes yes I do. They are excellent at getting kids attention. I got deep dish plates. Might as well use them too. But they are hard as hell.

Jan. 10th

a.m. BW 253

Cal. 2126, Fat 62% (56g), Protein 35% (70g), Carb 3% (7g)

 

a.m.

Platform Double Sledge(35).  1,2,4,8,10  Reps/25.  TV 875.

Sledge 180s (6). 3/3, 4/4, 4/4, 4/4, 3/3   Reps/36. TV 216

Platform Double Sledge(30).  1,2,4,8,16  Reps/31.  TV 930.

Various Random lifts with the Matts. (send off)

 

Notes:  Evening sledge (30) was plain easy.  Working the heavier weight has reaped benefits.

Left thumb only slightly jacked now.

Anton noticed the discrepancy between my intake grams and calories. 

The unaccounted for calories is whiskey...which has no fat/protein/carbs.

Jan. 11th

a.m. BW 264 ---(lots of salty food...became "water fat"...dune reference ftw)

Cal. 1390, Fat 76% (78g), Protein 21% (50g), Carb 3% (7g)

 

Sledge Rear levers (6).  4/4, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6.  Reps/116.  TV 696.

Grippers MMS (180).   Miss, Miss.

Sledge 180s (4). 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6.  Reps/48. TV 192

IM Hub (55).  2/2, 4/4, 4/4, 4/4, 4/4, 3/3.  Reps/42.  TV 2310

Fatman (53.4) off bench.  1/1, 1/1, 1/1, 1/0, 1/0, 1/0.  Reps/9.  TV 480.6.

Vulcan Pinky/Ring/pad closes (Rbs14).  4/4, 8/8, 8/8, 8/8, 8/8.  Reps/72.

 

Notes:

Rear levers felt amazing.  Could  have done more, but want to reduce excessive effort in workouts.

Had to stop Fatman right handed.  Realized I blew a blood blister when I noticed blood dripping off the blob into a small pool.  Looked badass.  Kinney ain't got nothing on me. :) 

Low food intake...not hungry.

a.m. BW 254 ---(how to drop 10lbs overnight without trying :) )

Cal. 1738, Fat 78% (86g), Protein 19% (48g), Carb 3% (7g)

 

IM Hub (55).  1/1, 3/3.  Reps/8.  TV 440

IM Hub (60).  1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 1/1.  Reps/10.  TV 600

Platform Double Sledge(35).  1,2,4,5.  Reps/12.  TV 420.

Dumbbell Triceps Extension (2x30).  6, 8, 9, 8, 8.  Reps/39  TV 2340

 

Notes:

I realize now that I need to take 2 days off between my "high end working weight" on the platform sledge.

Finally did a work out with the Bull Ring.  Randomly picked a working weight.  Felt about right. 

Did Sledge Supination levers.  Loved them!

Started an actual "non grip based" exercise today with the triceps.  What the heck am I thinking? :)
