Two days ago I did a gripper workout.

I dont know the english term for it. But I pulled something in my left forearm on the first workset during RT. It left me powerless.

It nothing serious, but still really annoying. I think it will be gone in a couple of days.

 

The rolling thunder always gives me minor problems. Jedd Johnson gave me some awesome advice and maybe it could help you out. He told me my issue could be an imbalance or weakness causing my issue(pain near my scapula). However,if you are truly hurt then that wouldn't fix things. 

If you're curious, I fixed my issue by giving more attention to lat and traps and it seemed to ease up my pain.

I'm not sure if I understand. Do you think me "pulling" a muscle in my forearm might be from imbalance in the upper body?

I'm always intrested in tips and pointers. However, I dont do any other work-outs then griptraining. Hopefully I will start full body work-out in the future. But right now I dont have the motivation.

To be a little more clear on things, if it's an injury I would back off training for a few days to see if that helps. For me I was feeling an imbalance and had to strengthen other muscles for the imbalance to be fixed. I hope this helps.

Some good, some bad. Left hand feels weird. It was close on the 2.5 30mm block. 

Its not that bad. But I'm pretty sure my crushing strength has fallen somewhat.

It was not an injury I would say. More like a strain. 

Ah, I see. I will get to it one day. Thank you for the advice!

This workout was so much fun. Felt great today.

Was really shocked how easy RB180 felt. 

Also, I realized what has been causing the wear on the left wrist. It's the welding I have been doing lately. A trial with complex angle has worn on my wrist.

Hmm. Three reps on 2.5 is decent. Wished I was able to do four or five. In time I guess.
Rest of the grippers was very "meh".. 

It's really strange how heavy that 30mm handle is. I bet 75kg or less would be my max.

Very close on GHP6. I was sloppy. Should have been able to close it.
A good negative with the #3 with left hand. Right was bad. I can't really get a good set with right.
I made a gripper to my six year old goddaugther.

I did a few bends this weekend. Stainless steel, 6x180mm and 6x150mm

Today I made two new rollers for my rolling handle. One 50mm, and the other 60mm. 
Both of solid aluminum. 
Way harder than Rolling Thunder ofc :D

It was unexpected that my right hand was so much weaker today.

I can handle 6x150mm quite easy now. But it feels like a big jump to 120mm. Feels really awkward with that short of a bar.
My right hand felt really trashed after the bends. The attempt on 6x120mm killed me. 
Maybe it is a bad idea to do griptraining after bends?

Here is a bend from a few days ago. Any advice is appreciated.

Yesterday I did 8x170mm HRS, which is a new PR.

 There is pain in my right hand however. Planing to stay away from bending about a week.
