What do you think of using the Cube so far?

It seems to be working well for me. The lower frequency seems to be helpful

Well they didn’t hire me for my good looks 

Gripnbend will have a gripper rating service soon if you're interested in getting yours rated.

W6D1 Heavy day

Took an unintentional deload week last week when I went away to new hire training with the Ontario Ministry of Corrections and Community Safety and forgot to bring my grippers with me. :blink

It has been difficult to fit in my gripper workouts with the heavy corse load and homework I am seeing as I continue my training to become a Corrections Officer. Apparently we will be shifting from mostly theory based work to more practical hands on work over the next week or two so that should hopefully clear up some time in my day.

W8D1 - Heavy day

Keep missing my volume day, forgot equipment for strap holds again. If anything the lower volume seems to be accelerating my progress. No vids this week as my phone is full but 3.5 was even closer then last week. New goal is to close it from CCS before I finish training December 15.

My sign up got a little lost in the shuffle but, all figured out now, gripper is en route. Feeling very confident about it.

W9D1 - "Heavy" Day

Hand feels weak today, probably just from finally getting my volume day in or maybe it was packing up all of my grandmas stuff today, to stupid or stubborn to take the day off. Couldn't even close the #3 in my warm up, never mind the 3.5. Going to back off the weight and volume a bit today and see how everything feels mid-week. Hopefully I'll come back strong next week.

Solid attempt.

What is the approximate RGC of that gripper?

Not sure, I haven't had it rated and haven't used a wide enough variety of grippers to know what similar RGC would feel like. The only other 3.5 I have used felt lighter then this one but I can't remember what the RGC was on it.

Lower grippers felt easy, heavier grippers felt like i was tying to crush a rock... hoping its because I did this workout immediately following my lift. grippers have been inconsistant the last few weeks, hoping to get back on track once I'm out of training.
