I feel like it might be helpful for me to start my own thread to keep track of my training and (hopefully) my progress. Today some of my training looked like this (I'll be more specific on the next up

I recently got myself a new CoC 2.5 rated by Cannon at 122 lbs and a GHP 7 at 144 lbs, so both relatively low rated. I happy to say I managed this today (first time training in two weeks because of a

Good job on 10 reps with the MH3!  Is your Silvis MH3 easier than your Spectrum (127 rated)?

No grippers today but I did some Fat Gripz dumbbell rows in my workout with 40 kg / 88 lbs dumbbells for 4 sets, 6-7 reps each set.

Will do some gripper work on friday probably.

Here's the GHP 6 block set 2 reps attempt with left hand (I was too fast removing the gripper from focus):

Great grip day today.

CoC 1 - 5 MMS reps.

CoC 2 - 3 MMS reps.

Monster Hunter 4* - 1 rep with 20mm block right hand. Nice to close this and I'll send in the cert video to Silvis! I tried with left as well and was ~1mm off.

GHP6 - 6 MMS reps right hand. 5 MMS reps left hand.

CoC 2 - 20 MMS reps right hand. 15 MMS reps left hand.

Fat Gripz Deadlift up to 110 kg.

Some reverse curls + other stuff at the gym.

For those interested, here's a video of the GHP6 set:

 

Nice!  I finally closed the GHP #6 once the other night.

Some more gripper work today and I'd first like to go over how I measured the mount depths today: I set the spring as deep as it goes and made a mark where the spring "legs" meet the handles. I then moved the handles down a bit and got both handles to be as exact as possible using one of those digital micrometers. This is how it looked using this method:

Silvis T-Rex at 6,35mm or 0,25 inches MMS/deep set attempt - Failed, but very close.

Silvis T-Rex at 6,35mm or 0,25 inches attempt - Failed, but very close.

Silvis T-Rex at 6,35mm or 0,25 inches attempt - Closed with both hands.

Silvis Frankenstein at 7mm or 0,275 inches attempt  - Closed with rigth hand and very close with left (or closed?).

GHP7 Braced attempt - I made the handles touch and then let go with my "helping hand" and tried to hold it for a few seconds. Could definitely not hold it close but it was still a good attempt for me. I did worse with my left.

GHP6 x 2 deep set reps.

Anyone know approximately what the RGC might be using my above method? Going by an average T-Rex and Frankenstein spring obviously since I guess they vary slightly just like everything else. I'd say the T-Rex felt a tiny bit harder than my Monster Hunter 4* (also unknown RGC).

You can see some of my workout here:

Good work with the T-rex man!

I've had two T-Rex's and I would guess high 130's to low 140's at that setting.

Thanks for your input! Would be nice to own an easy CoC 3 now, I'd guess mine is an average CoC 3, which means it's too hard right now. My GHP 7 is probably around the same RGC.

The T-Rex will fill that gap perfectly. The downside is that they are a bit too easy to set in my opinion. But you could just practice that with the GHP.

Sweet!

Not going into detail, but I did some Fat Gripz deadlifts and some dumbbell wrist curls today, among other things non-grip related.

I also did 3 reps barbell bicep curl with 60 kg / 132 lbs. Never tried that weight before, I did it as strict as I could and it went OK. Might share a video.

Strong, 60 kg strictly is no joke.

Thanks man! Not sure if they're that "strict" but I really tried. It's hard to not swing at all at that weight. I also didn't lock out my arms at the start of every rep. Probably going to try it again or something similar before I share a video.

Not been feeling to well last couple of days and only got four hours of sleep last night, but I did do a little bit of grip work tonigt:

CoC 1 x 5 TNS reps.

GHP 5 x 1 CCS rep.

CoC 2.5 hold with another gripper (using the CoC Guide like a Silvet Bullet but without weight) - around 9 seconds, first time trying this, it felt pretty weird and I'm not sure if my set was very successful. My 2.5 is around 130 RGC if I had to guess.

Gold's Gym Gripper 125 kg MMS - Failed, should be able to do this one normally, it's around CoC 2.5 but seems like not near the build quality.

CoC 2 x 8 MMS reps.

Here's the "Silvet Bullet" hold:

Set a new bench press PB yesterday: 130 kg / 287 lbs. Did this at a gym in my old hometown. They also had a grip machine which was fun to try but I could pretty easily do max weight at 80 kg / 176 lbs.
