HG 250 (117) for 7/8/8 reps

I am back into grippers after my surgeon told me to back off until I got another x-ray.  X-Ray this past week shows the fusion is healing well, and I start physical therapy next week.

Good news, just got the ok from my surgeon to start lifting weights.  Its been 3.5 months since the fusion.  Just messed around with grippers and got a very easy single with GHP 6 (134 lbs).  I can feel the strength coming back in my left arm as I was able to use it to set the gripper.  I am looking forward to re-gaining strength and seeing how far I can push the grippers.  My immediate goal is MM0.

I am working on general strength training to get my strength back after the surgery.  I just had my last physical therapy session today.

Worked up to 2 X 2 @GHP 6 (134), then two negatives @BBE (158)

I don’t think I have ever doubled this big of a gripper before, so things are looking promising for my recovery of strength.
