Congrats on the bench pr! Rep looked strong.

That weight on the blob is similar to the real blob50? Good job!

Here's the plan again: 

A - Bench Axle Wristcurls, Reverse Wristcurls Ponyclamp (Just started the curls inspired by your basic program since I actually never done the basics i think it fits in well to get a stronger axle.

B - Bench some kind of pinch or hub (Blockbuster, Blobreplica, IM Hub will need to setup some 2 hand pinch also to cycle in) Deadlift (DOH as long as possible and 1 attempt on monkeygrip on the working set)

C - Bench rows Silverbullet Little big Horn. Sometimes rows get cut out because my back gets hell of a beating during the other workouts. Just did 1 workout with LBH so we will see how it fits in there after SB.

Goals:

Bench I managed 152.5kg last session for a new PR, I want to be comfortably over 150 so I can back down to 2 workouts/week to stay/increase slowly and change to squats since for overall strength it much more important. Also the main goals atm is getting my axle higher (155 on competition 183 on homemade axle) second goal is 300 deadlift and 250 DOH. Did 230 DOH for a new pr 2 sessions ago without to much problems. After this I want to continue improving my SB to hopefully reach times > 30 seconds with #4 for competition in October. It's a hell of a jump but I'll give it a go.

That's the idea!

Grippers: 

#2.5 1 

#3   1/0 LH hurting so Only 1 rep 2.5 after

#3 1 1 

#3.5 0 0 0 

#3 1 1 0 CCS 

Second attempt 3.5 and second attempt CCS strongest. Missed the film on second ccs but could feel the handles grind on that one. I think I might be able to close 3.5 if I bring it to the gym and do it fired up not half asleep watching TV..

Strong work dude. If you improve your set, that 3.5 is closed and ya being pumped up at the gym while lifting makes a big difference

Super strong! And I agree with getting fired up at the gym. My best closes were right after a good squat session where my cns was fired up. I think that 3.5 will get smashed very soon! 💪

Thanks Chez! I haven't trained grippera since juli/august last year, except for some random closes on the #3 with both hands and ofc Silverbullet holds. If you have some ideas how to improve my set I gladly take any advice :)

Yea being at the gym working out is such a difference. Last week I tried some closes with the left and actually got a double on #3 which I had alot of struggle with when I put the grippers on the shelf to even close once. Today I was 5mm from doing a single just because not fired up. Would be cool to close the 3.5.

You can totally get that with some practice! You're about as far away from your #3.5 as I am with my left hand on my #3. You'll have that closed within the year for sure, if not end of the summer.

Wristcurls and reversecurls 13kg Axle 3x12

Good hold on 173 Axle and happy with 148 thumbless! I did some gripper singles on 2.5 and #3 and it felt shit in nu elbow. The one I had an injury in. Note to self: dont be stupid rest 7-10 days from grippers now. Tried a New technique on axle inspired by third 470 lift. Go down deep to pick axle up, easier to get bent arms and thus a stronger wrist position.

Also my axle is a lot easier then the real deal :)

Pritty bad tendinitis in my right elbow from yesterdays destruction. But then I got my new rogue chalk so had to try it out. Wow, love it. Sticks to objects much easier and you can feel that the grip sticks better. 

Played with blockbuster up to 40.5kg and then hub up to 34kg (which was a very good lift I didnt think I could do right now) then put some on the blob and toyed around with it. 

Also did some rehab levers, extensions, massage and stretching for the destroyed arm. Probably the radialcurls who did it!

I saw your home setup of grip stuff. With a treasure trove like that I imagine it's hard not to test out the new chalk when you get it. :D

Hope your tendons feel better soon man.
