*loud victorious yelling* (Hexabastard in BBW)

So I would like to do a series of grip equipment review videos. Since I am not an elite grip athlete and no one is going to learn anything about grip by watching me lift, this might be my best way to

Thanks for the plug. Both options are available now in all four of the Spring Color options: Gray, Mill Scale, Battleship, and Gunmetal.   As far a YT Videos. I shoot everything with a Canon

Update time! (Buckle in)

Last fall we moved and I jokingly referred to it as “spider relocation”. Well, I won’t be making jokes about spiders for a while. They have adapted surprisingly well to their new environment. A little too well... There are spiders everywhere with a particularly unnerving stronghold in the shed. And I don’t mean like webs in the corners, I mean full on standing their ground, crossing the floor towards you, and the especially nightmarish, blowing in the breeze on a single web strand from the neighbors trees to wrap around you when crossing the yard.🕷

Training

  I haven’t logged the last several workouts but that doesn’t matter now. The previous injury has re-emerged. I didn’t do anything either. I just sort of woke up this way. I have a lot of thinking to do about the future of training.

Shop

At first it was novel and exciting. Then it quickly grew into a habit. And now I am at the point where the only way to support my growing habit, is to start dealing. Ha!

Bus Driver: Welcome aboard, watch your step.(closes the door while accelerating) Next stop Snap City!!!

me: Wait! What?... I thought this was the bus to recovery and progress!?!

Bus Driver: Hahahaha!!!(struggles to regain composure) No, this is the one way express trip to Snap City.

me: you gotta stop! You gotta let me off!

Bus Driver: (staring at the horizon as the bus hurdles down the road) Yea, I cant do that...

 

Well I am doing a little better but I will have quite a way to go to return to regular training from Snap City. In the meanwhile...

It’s the square pinch dumbbell I borrowed from you. Mr. Dube made it.

Laying cable and/or banded curls. If you dont have one yet a cable setup is pretty easy to rig up with a loading pin and creative talents such as yours. I like to use the band to anchor the loading pin to my power rack so that, not only do I get the overload, it prevents the loading pin from swinging around.

Excellent point. I have a simple cable set up and the wildly swinging pin is a serious hindrance. Thanks.

Slow and painful Sunday 

A bunch of body weight partial range of movement junk. I would love to clobber the snot out of something if it didn’t hurt to swing a sledgehammer.

club swings

Tuesday

bp 3x3 215, 2brd 3x3 225

sp 85 5x10, pull-ups 3x8, oar 70 5x8

 

friday

bp 235 5x1, dB Bp 50 5x10

shoulder raises 3 sets, pull-ups 3x8, oar 5x6 100

everything feels broken. It seems like life is constantly taking things away from you and you just have to cram whatever you can find into that hole in yourself trying the best you can to carry on.

shop up date. 

I received two of Amazon’s finest, er, cheapest dial indicators to hopefully get a project a bit more user friendly.DA834527-4D5E-4AD4-B10E-3086AEBFE134.thumb.jpeg.f689f754557ac8bacef11f449aa5300e.jpeg

As July starts the second half of the year, I need to redouble my efforts to this year’s goals(the ones that I might accomplish anyway).

recent reading. It’s a short book but full of all kinds of “hold my beer” ideas. It probably isn’t worth a purchase but definitely worth skimming if you get the chance.D6F38195-C318-47C8-BC61-749E18F14764.thumb.jpeg.56b7e67d28246be693eff0f08384874e.jpeg

Da’ joke

My girlfriend wanted a marriage just like a fairy tale...

I gave her some bread crumbs and left her in the forest.

Did regular workouts on tues and fri. I scaled back to half the volume on fri. because my shoulders feel off. Today(sun) some body weight work and some much needed club swinging. Hit a little DO, and some ugly card tears, first time tearing Mavericks.
