I un choked my #4 because it wasn't using it anyway. Was a full workout getting it loose. I then put the hose clamp on my #3.5 got it in fully, but the clamp was to far down. Unscrewed it and did it again, I wish I had some tools at home to get it together but I dont. So was super tired. When I got the clamp in a good position i did some reps on 6mm. Unscrewed to 8mm and closed it like 7 times (2 2 1 2) 

I love the choker. Its like Im actually able to close the #3.5. Hands got worked good aswell.

New pinch PR. I havent bothered weighing the blockbuster and carabiner but since 43.9kg was PR I wanted to know how much it was. Couldn't believe it was 1.6kg! Super happy.

I  didnt really believe when people said fatbar training ruins grippers, well I'm a believer. 

Could just precisely close #3 once with my right. Then #3.5 2 seconds sb and like 3 tries more before I gave up and did 5 seconds with #3. Completely fried forearms. 

Well well! 

From a competitors point of view grippers are least important part of a winning score sheet. Chase that big axle lift and everything else rises with the high tide

That is a very good close, choke or not. Should be close to a proper close with a good set.

Thanks Andreas! I dont know really, perhaps with a optimal set i could close it but unfortunately I think the choker helps to much.

You are definitely correct. I take that as a compliment that your reading the beginning of my log :D

I also seen that my gripperstrength increased alot doing fatbar training. I have 10 workouts left to complete the rolling thunder program I'm on and after that axle is my next priority. I will build a homemade axle to atleast have a straight bar to work with.

Went out of plan with bench, coach not happy about it but 142.5 without ass leaving the pad is nice! 

 

Great work on the RT. 20 reps with 61kg is awesome. The plate pinch rotation is a great idea. Im going to try it. Id imagine it gives a great thumb pad pump?

Thanks! 

The plate pinch rotation idea actually came from reddit who runs a competition this month with 25x2lbs plates max rotation on 30 seconds. Since I didnt have any 25lbs plates I ran with what i got. I was expecting thumb pad pump but unfortunately 15kgx2 plates was to heavy. If thumb pump is the goal I would use 10/25lbs plates instead because I actually felt nothing in my thumbs (which was my goal to support my RT)

Nice, ill have to check reddit out. Im looking forward to trining these after my next rolling thunder workout on friday. I love plate curls as an RT assistance exercise. 2x15kg is quite heavy tp do dynamic work yeah but shows you are stong. Ill start out light, thanks.

Fail. Couldn’t judge your depth with that plate in the way. 

Hahaha I noticed after! Probably around parallel, haven't adjusted for the bigger belly + lack of squats made me loose mobility!

I've had to loosen my belt a notch since Nationals.  I suspect beer plays into this somehow. And yeah, I've definitely experienced a loss in mobility!  I think power bellies help only up to a point, and I may have found where that point is for myself.

I gained around 7kg since august :D with a competition with only 105+ class I saw no point in being 115 so gained intentionally. I've been 126kg at most but lost 16kg last year. Power bellie gives me alot in squat when I get used to it, it's a matter of technique to be able to bounce on the belly in the bottom.  Mobility loss is due to not squating to much aswell :)

The 120 class will be my personal superheavy class. I’m free to eat as I wish with no risk of ever having to cut weight for a meet. It seems my squat goes up with any sort of weight gain as does my bench to a lesser extent. My deadlift says, “ Your power belly doesn’t impress me.” 😮😆

I think my correct class should be +120kg but with more muscle and less fat. For now -120 is where I belong though. Yea I have exact the same. Deadlift is super awkward with belly, cant eat before session else I feel like I'm going to puke any second.
