I was just looking at your bench session you did yesterday Thom, it seems a bit different to your format in your other bench training sessions.

Is that a regular thing thing that you do in a particular phase of the program you're following or just a variety day to mix things up a bit?

It's been the same for the time I've been on this program. I'm going to change workout A today though here is the program: 

A 10x7 started at 90kg, when I managed all 7 sets raise 7.5kg. When i managed all 7 sets, raise 7.5kg to 102.5kg where I'm at right now. done 5 sets as we speak. 

B 3x3 started light at 110x3x3 with stop on the chest, raise 2.5kg every successful workout today is 122.5kg

C 50kgx5x5 as slow as possible no weight increase. 

On workout A I'm going for a heavy single before the 10's now to see where I'm at. Aim is a heavy single but never fail.

OK that puts it into context, I can see  how the progression is structured a bit better now.

Those slow reps are tough but they definitely have some benefit. They hit the slow twitch fibers and tax them to the max. Fast reps also have their place depending on what part of the cycle you're in.

Thanks for the insight bro.

Sorry for the slow reply I've had a hectic day.

It's just one finger that's giving me trouble.It's a bit painful but it seems OK most of the time unless put a load on it on an angle (like when you set a gripper). So I'll probably just focus on fatbar & rolling handle work.

I like talking about training methods too, you're never too old to learn something new. I always tell my kids if you don't ask you're just guessing and I try to live by that ethos, so sometimes I ask a lot of silly questions but I always get good answers.

You could also get a pipe as leverage to set the gripper properly :) 

But yea, fatbar and rolling handle work is great. I really feel stronger since I've put most of my focus on the RT. 

If you never ask you will never know! I agree fully.

Ah, so you completely close the gripper then slowly open before inserting the bullet. I need to try this method as I have been approaching from the oppossite direction... via setting the gripper at near parallel then inserting the bullet.

That way you stretch the skin more and get some extra help + you can reach over and use your thumb on your fingers to lock the grip!

RT was really really hard definitely max. Dont know how to proceed but I guess I'll keep going for now. 

something said snap around my collarbone when I put the yoke down the last run. Hurts to carry stuff when i loose tension. Hope it's nothing to bad.

Grippers: 

#1.5 10 mms

#2 10 mms

LH 2.5mm 1 1 1 

#1.5 10 

IM hub 20x5 and 30x0 

Home made pennypinch

Tried a different technique with the handle further back in my hand. Technique was not on point but very happy with my strength. The two misses were 2mm away and would have been closes with better technique.

Grippers:

Gripper felt hard when doing over 20mm closes, the 3 was with 10-15mm which felt nice. Left is also feeling decent. Left wrist very cranky afterwards. 

Pinch: 

Happy with all the lifts. Tore of a chunk of flesh in the right thumb crease but only scar tissue so no bleeding.

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.
