My road to get MM1 certified


Recommended Posts

I'm gonna try to post a little about my training in the future, with some videos. Want to climb up the MM ladder. Appreciate help and input from anyone.

 

Today I had my first gripper workout since I certified on MM0.

COC#3 20mm block set 5x1rep 

Some pinkie and ringfinger work.

I just signed up for my MM1, I'm pretty nervous. How's your progress coming along? 

Hehehe, oil money!😂 I built my own gym in the garden 3 years ago. It was always a dream for me, to have my own gym. I work as a construction worker, do not have much money. I do not spend money on alc

Ill be trying again soon myself, good luck dude!

Good luck Glenn. Looks great so far. Your isometric strength and endurance in the parallell position is impressive! Do you do set holds with heavier grippers?

And I just want to say that after taking the trip to Trolltunga and Preikestolen among other things a couple of years back,  you certainly live in one of the most beautiful and spectacular countries in the world. What an experience it was.

Thanks! No, have not done that, but will try it👍 I have held the silver bullet for 42sec with a COC#3 RGC 150, so I feel that my endurance is good at parallell, compared to my level of crushing power.

 

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to Norway.  I agree with you. When I was a child, we threw paper planes down Preikestolen😊

Awesome! ☺️ I have never tried the silver bullet actually, so that isn't saying me much but sounds like a really good time.

Haha great 😃 as a kid that must have been the coolest thing ever.

Feedback/thoughts: Look into Pendlay rows as a substitute to barbell rows. They will allow for more range of motion, more ability to use power, will make your entire back and brachioradialis much stronger than with a regular barbell row. They also minmize cheating. They will humble you at first but the rewards after a cycle if you have never done them before will be immense. One weakness would be time under tension if you are strictly after hypertrophy at the moment (considering you do 12 reps) but that is easily countered by standing on two 20kg plates or something.

It is a splendid exercise. Also as a bonus, the top part of my pull ups (chest to bar) have never been as strong as they are now, which I solely attribute to Pendlay rows.

Thanks for your thoughts, I have tryed pendlay rows. But I like to do the rows like Ed Codan did them.
