2 finger Vbar singles up to 52kg PR 

RT:

Rh 86x2.9 PR

Lh 91.4kg crossbar lift PR

Biceps ez curls superset with extensions over head 

Deadlift is feeling like a million tons need to go further down on 5s and start over. 

RT with my own loadingpin and a slightly different setup with my pinky made me blow my mind and do 86x2.9 and a single with left hand on 91.4 which is 5kg more then previous PR.

Okay, so I think I have a plan. (as almost always I wont stick to it, but ill try) 

Here are some numbers I'm thinking could be some kind of baseline where I should be in key areas. 

Blockpinch 40kg 

Im hub 30kg 

Axle 175kg (on the hard axle, 190 on the easy) 

RT 90kg (on the RT and I think 80 on mine at home) Need to max them out so I know the exact numbers. 

 

 

I think Pinch/RT/Axle are the most important partly because it will give me a well rounded grip and increase my strength overall. But also that it's often used in competitions. 

If I'm strong at those 3 I have a solid base to stand on and can specialize before events. My new idea is to do RT 2x/week and axle 1 time/week. 65-75% of 1RM 10x3-5 on RT. On Axle I'm not really sure what the best strategy is, I see @AdamTGlass doing singles for volume. Perhaps I could do singels up to 85-90% of 1RM and do 4-5 singels and when I manage to do 5 singles move up in weight 2.5-5kg and push my baseline that way. I will try to get atleast 1 pinch workout/week. I'm thinking volume around 85%.  Grippers and certifying on the #3 will have to wait until I'm stronger overall.

 

I'm only focusing on my bench atm in powerlifting. Just trying to get some squat/deads in when I feel for it. Squat is really off atm. Technique is bad and strength is poor. I'm not to worried about it though. I'll focus on bench only until this program is over and see if I reach 150. Doesn't feel like it atm. 

Blockbuster - Check 6+ months no blockbuster still got 40kg 

Hub: 4 months without training 34kg 

RT 90kg+ even with very tired arms

Axle: consistent on 168. So 7kgs more to go!

Nah, when you adapt to the movement the weights will shoot up big time.

Hopefully Hopefully! 

I'm not too worried actually, I have given it some thought and when I first started with the 80mm pinchblock Anton made for me I could barely lift 30 (without chalk nonetheless) but it rose very quickly to 40 and even to 45 which is a pritty good lift. But still, I have done 80kg holds for 10 seconds when I had the exact same setup but with 15kg plates xD

It's very common to stagnate for months until it starts creeping up again. A plateau does not necessarily mean there is something wrong with the program if you see some gains in other aspects of the grip. Impatience can kill long term gains.

I can pinch more on the Euro at 67mm than I can at 58 mm. Most can't but a few of us perform best at a fairly wide setting.

Yes but the feeling is that I'm going backwards.. so that's why I'm thinking perhaps I need to learn the lift better with more lifts. Not sure yet!

Yea I think 1 more spacer would be good, Its at a pritty awkward spot atm.
