A video of yours from a few years ago came up in the side panel when I posted a youtube vid the other day and it made my effort seem quite feeble in comparison. Do you still do any work with pinch blocks on a pullup bar or has that type of training lost its value now you're lifting heavier stuff off the floor?

That's one of the most impressive displays of full body strength, mobility and grip strength I've ever seen executed at the same time.

I still do all that stuff. At this body weight I can do 95% of my harder Calisthenics moves to a satisfactory degree. It has lost some value in the time exchange equation compared to competition lifts. Over the span of a quarter I’m including some bar transition and annually I do a few stretches of time on the pinch hangs

Great workout Adam. You and DH have the best all-around wrist strength in the world- anyone who thinks differently better have vids and no past- tense crap.

Thank you my friend! I feel very far behind David. he’s the one who expanded my understanding of wrist training. Particularly his approach on training volume and circuit training.

Save some strength for the rest of us. No need to be all grip-greedy!

Well... unless you’re trying to be the best Saxon Bar lifter ever, I suppose...

Deload tomorrow to Wednesday. All that’s planned is terrible 40-50 rep squats and cable work. 

Projection for next contest are #4 for 10-12 sec, RT 220-231, doha 418-440, Saxon 248-258. The last few weeks have been a butt kicker

September 2018 to September 2019 year in review

in 2018 this month average body weight was 189-193 lb. I was alerted to an upcoming event and was told to prepare my Dumbbell lifts. From the end of 2013 to that point was calisthenics and gymnastics with very little grip work. The little I was doing was pinch grip and some vertical bar. 

In October Tommy Jennings suggested getting some guys together to lift. That became a standing appointment every week to this day. 

My daily training switched from handstands, bar work, and floor exercises to fat gripz doh lifts, rolling thunder, gripper holds and Saxon lifts. My barbell lifts were down from previous years but my body felt great and moved well. 

Lifting a bar 4-5 days a week will transform your body. Over the last year my weight has moved up to nearly 30 lb. For the year the two real targets have remained axle & Saxon. Axle went from a tough 375 in October to 445 lockout and being able to lift 412-420 any day of the week and day after day in training. In January I lifted 220 on my 2.5 bar, now on any day I can lift 268-275 consistently with best lift being 283. In every contestthis year I have lifted over 400 doh and pinched over 220. 

Silverbullet was the biggest jump. In the December meet I used a 3 for something small like 15 seconds. In March at the Arnold set and held #4 for 2 seconds, and Europa #4 for 6 seconds, at Metroflex for 8 seconds. This was the largest proportion increase of any event. 

Rolling thunder is the slowest progressing event. My December result was 215 and missed at 220. At Europa I locked out 231. On any given day I may be repping 220 or missing 211. Crazy variations in performance. My strong side has been left but the last 5 months I’ve had a nagging injury that flares up with bent arm lifts. Getting better fast. The Rollie handles always a wild card in my score sheet. 

Some notable prs this year in grip

lift Thomas Inch 20 reps in 60 seconds 

Pinching 131 kg at South West contest. 

Rogue Record Breaker Farmers walk attempt- just so amazing to able to try. 

440 lb axle weighing 207 lb 

 

For the coming year I will continue this focus to consistently chase these lifts. I know what meets I will travel for and I have my off season months marked off. I’ll have two rounds of 20 rep squats and will possibly move up a weight class for a portion of the year. Lots of hamburgers and revolver on the menu. 

For the guys coming up behind me - consistently showing up to the gym and moving plates is the only way I know that always works. Most of the programs and rep schemes so frequently discussed are useless compared to the mindset of showing up week after week and doing work. This is a S L O W process. My results this year are that if someone returning to climb again. Muscle memory that whole deal. If you are coming in to this with no real foundation it will be a slow go for the first 2 years. 9 out 10 will give up- be that 1 who doesn’t. 

Dont get caught up in whatever the shiny thing of the week is. Don’t worry about the new handle. Stay on that axle or fat gripz until you are consistently lifting a heavy load for your skeleton size. 

Dont worry about what everyone else is doing. Worry about what you’re doing. 

Build a local crew. Don’t make it all a virtual thing. Your challenge is not to find people who care about what your training for- it’s finding some people that care about training. Out of the Texas team some are all about arm lifting but others power lifting others arm wrestling others steel bending- doesn’t matter. We get together and keep the ball moving towards the goal post every week. 

A good year of training in the books. I hope yours has been as well. If not I hope you do something about it other than explain why it wasn’t.

I approve this message. 

Great progress, Adam!

If you’ve never trained with Adam don’t get the erroneous idea it’s all burgers and beer. He’s one of the most focused individuals you’ll ever meet. No freakish gifts of genetics, just consistent hard work  for the long haul. Determination trumps all.
