Saturday 9/15/18 "Anarchy at Anton's!"  @Anton.Torrella Actually it was pretty organized...but alliteration is key to a good title.   So yesterday was an epic griptogether.  6 New

I've decided I am definitely going to compete at King Kong.   When I say definitely...I mean if I'm bedridden, I'll hold a comp in the hospital and slide off the bed to perform all my lifts.  

9/24/18 p.m. Last night Juliet's personal trainer "Tre" dropped in for Grip 101.  He's strong, lifted 139 INCH right out the gate. Lot's of showing/explaining.  I did a mishmash of a couple

be careful with all those negatives. they can chew you up.

a log can be a really useful tool. the feedback from other can be very useful, especially when you train alone.

Were you plus one-ing the log as a useful tool or do you have a "negative" story?

V2 Level 8 Triple (1.5" Explosive Speed Closes) L + R

DB One Arm Rows

So it turns out...not only was I doing them wrong...but I was going out of my way to do them wrong. I recently watched a video by Jedd on these and apparently in an effort to fully engage my lats in this exercise, I was really playing with fire with my shoulders. I was really using an exaggerated full range motion(on purpose). Since I'm in no great rush to injure myself, I am backing the weight down slightly to make sure I am using the recommended range of motion. Lil' shoutout TY to Napalm.

L105x5 + R105x5

L95x5 + R95x5

L85x5 + R85x5

25 Leg lift crunch finish...legs off bench (Last set...try to go as slow as possible...ow..ow..ow)

V2 Level 9 Triple (1.5" Explosive Speed Closes) L + R

DB Squats (dumbbells on shoulders)

Well...today's squat session was quite the eyeopener.

110(55x2)x5

At this point, I literally starting heaving and my stomach kinda turned over. I decided to drop the weight slightly.

100(50x2)x5

At this point...a couple of oz's of coffee came up and projectile vomited as I finished my last one. Additionally, I tweaked/pulled something in my right quadracep on that last one (since then, stairs have been navigable, but a little painful). I decided to call it a day on squats. You see, back in the day (youth), I would have thought that vomiting from effort was a good thing, since I'm working very hard.

Now however, the fact that I am using very low weight (for squats), for low reps (at that point), combined with the heart condition, I'm thinking maybe my heart is trying to tell me to back off. So next week I'm gonna drop back to 80 (40x2) and see how that goes. I'm pretty unhappy about this, but again, I'm not looking to drop dead any time soon.

2 1.5" #3 L(miss 1/4) + R(1 iffy close/paper miss, 1 close just off camera)

1 1/5" GHP7 L(miss1/4) + R(closed...again dropped down off camera)

20 (8+4+4+4+4) DB Squats (40x2 rest on shoulders)

At this point, I'm totally convinced that my squat issues have everything to do with my heart and little to do with my legs.

Next Tuesday I intend on changing things up (wide pinch farmers walk dropping until hands destroyed).

I'm a bit concerned about how I'm feeling.

I was feeling a little funny yesterday...that and several weeping torn off blisters convinced me to take the day off.

While dehydration could be a factor, I'm pretty sure it's not the major one.

I'm going to cut Tuesdays out of the mix and spread the missing work between Mon and Wed...with Wed absorbing the majority.

The new breakdown will be Monday (TSG,General Work Out), Wednesday (Pinch, WR), Thursday (V2,General Work Out).

I'm hoping the extra day of rest will help me maximize my effort/results.

Mentally weak. Physically weak. One of those forced Work Outs. Never really hit my groove. Amazing how much the brain can get in the way. Right Pinky still a disaster but healing slowly.

With the power outage and a trip to Maryland, I'm not going to attempt to recreate whatever workouts I managed.

At the very least, I know I fried my hands pretty good, because today they were weak as hell.

when you think you're overtrained you're probably right. and probably have been for a little while. our admittance is naturally a little slow.

when you think you're overtrained you're probably right. and probably have been for a little while. our admittance is naturally a little slow.

Thanks for the support...part of me desperately wants to train and it's currently at war with the other part. :grin:

Depending on how overtrained you feel tailor a plan for it. Sometimes just doing full body work is all you need. The hands get a little bit of active recovery and you still get to workout, feeling the steel and all. Maybe toss is hand specific active recovery for a couple weeks. Or just change up the grip focus. Sometimes doing something else is all one needs. As you can see recovery is not easy to master.

Weirdness ensued today...see blob50 below.

My Gripper workouts are going to be geared to CCS from now until I Cert. (hopefully Feb/March).

I will be employing a Choked #3.5 starting at 5/8" to work on that last little bit.

Additionally, I'll be spending more time on blob work as recommended by Eric Godfrey (aka bender).

(Grippers considered closed, Blobs locked out...unless otherwise noted)

Grippers

1 CCS #1 L + R

1 CCS #1.5 L + R

1 CCS #2 L + R

1 CCS #2.5 125 L + R
1 KK L+ R

1 #3(deepset miss 1/4") L + CCS #3 R(miss 1/2")

1 #3(deepset closed!) L + CCS #3 R(miss 1/4")

1 #3(deepset closed!) L + CCS #3 R(miss 1/4")

1 #3(deepset miss 1/8") L + CCS #3 R(miss 1/8")

1 #3(deepset miss 1/4") L + CCS #3 R(miss 1/4") just not feeling it today...

Secret Ninja WO :ninja:

1 #3.5 choked (miss 1/4") L + R

1#3.5 choked (miss 1/4") L + R

1#3.5 choked (miss 1/2") L + R (miss 1/8")

Blob50 (52lbs)

10 L + R singles (each seemed stronger/easier than the last)

10 x3(touch...regrip and go...alternate hands between triples) L + R (PR)

5 L + R singles holds (2-6 seconds a piece...one righty outlier at 10 sec :yikes )

blob50+magweight

(53.5) L + R

(54.7) L + R

(55.9) R only (PR)

Frankly the whole Blob session was a PR...65 lifts in like 10-15 min. Didn't track the time exactly.

I was dripping all over the blob and constantly rechalking...but the dammit...it kept going up.

I don't get it...some day's I can barely hop the bitch...today, I owned her.

While it's true I took an entire week off prior to last nights workout...I think this is also some weird example of CNS firing on all cylinders.

It's funny, I'm happier about this WO than my first #3 close.

After my #3 Cert...I'm going to really dive into blob work...see what I can see.
