I saw that you train super early and was wondering about your pre training ritual and nutrition. I just had a son and my only opportunity to get a full uninterrupted workout is in the morning now and I'm having a tough time acclimating. If you have some free time could you pass some advice along. Thank you in advance.

Neal, weekdays I do have to workout early- My wife use to massage my arms and back but now I awake 2 hours early so I use foam roller for back and lower arms, Epsom salt soak of hands 20 minutes, and Tabata Jumping jacks and Iam ready. Nutrition-Prior to foam rolling and soak of hands I have bowl of oatmeal with sprinkle of haters/jellies on it, pot of coffee(unless I do pullups and no liquid- I think it may help me squeak a 1/2 rep w/o the extra liquid weight) during workout Rockstar energy drink and afterwards 50G protein drink with PBJ. I have traded alcohol/chew addiction for grip addiction so it is fairly easy to get motivated- although I still listen to enter sandman and going the distance prior, LOL. Early evening before workout I will use tennis ball to release tightness in hands and lower arm and that has been a game changer. Hope this novel helps and if you want the vids on the tennis ball releases let me know- P.S. I love that extensor implement!!

Thank you very much for the great advice. I'm going to try some of these things into my routine and see if it helps. I've heard about the tennis ball about a year ago and use that a lot, it helps recovery big time. Thanks again for your time and also good luck with training.

10/22/18 Early A.M. workout Grippers out of gate felt horrible so I abandoned and used plate loaded grip device from NY barbell- seldom used for sure:) Finnish ball timed holds with 5lb jump felt good but my KP is not in top form but getting closer. BSS flask 2HP timed holds 172 x 10 seconds, 8, 5, 3 Plate pinches- felt good but still figuring out finger placemen, etc. Parris device 4x moderate reppage, NN 2 /3" commando hangs 3x didn't time it but nice conclusion to workout

Very nice on the axle. We are very close on this one. 💪 I tried 385 the other day and just couldn’t get it. I’m gonna dabble with some pulls off of cinder blocks. 400 from the floor  is right around the corner. I’ll pull 400 from blocks to speed up the pace. That’s one thing I’ve never really dabbled in.

Thanks Joe, I think you are right about the same pulls right now. Iam still not 100% committed to the heavier DL(due to sciatica recovery) but obviously getting better:) I have been doing 3" axle holds and that has been good for me maybe try it out, too

Yea man I can feel the back and left sciatica from my lumbar fusion with axle. Whether it’s an axle or a standard bar, anything over 350 is felt a lot.  I am trying to isolate my glute with basic rehab activation to minimize my sciatica I feel from it. To me, axle is something that should be done if we are serious about grip. It’s like the most basic, primal test of strength that I want to be capable of. I will be very happy when 400 is attained. Sometime in the new year!

I only used the Titan fitness 3 inch bar once or twice when I first got it. How have you been utilizing it in your training? Sets? Reps? Frequency?

You will get 400 for sure. I just want a P.R. of 381 and I will be very proud! Here was my 377 lb attempt this A.M. - still very cautious off the ground

400 will be better. Gripmas is December 8th and has axle. You just never can tell though. Everyone’s axle is at a different degree of seasoning. A brand new one is like slick oil. The one we used at the Philly expo was so slick it actually felt like there was a layer of oil on it. Haha

 Grip deload week- intensity and volume. "Highlights" few this week other than 327 lb close grip bench press below vid. Heads up- REI is having 30% off Metollius rock rings $20.89- great deal and device.
