Absolute beast bro, amazing long holds closed too.. Now you need to change your grip log to 'Gripper training answers'. Congrats 💪

You did it after the #2.5 and GHP 7 sets too?.. damn. You could have probably did the #3 for mini reps with that MMS style lol.

Haha thanks man. Yeah felt pretty good to finally get those handles to touch. I am gonna get a better video though can barely see what I’m doing on both those videos. Now I think I’m gonna work on Getting my 3 with a CCS. Good luck to you on your 3 your super close gonna happen really soon.

Nice, go for it. I'm taking a deload and a week off from grippers this week but I might give it another go on Fri/Sat if I feel good.

Yeah I had to pretty well take Wednesday off. Felt weak, easy grippers felt hard. Then after basically taking a week off and hitting them again today everything felt way easier.

Solid weighted chins man. My main goal is getting them up right now. My best was 20kg for a set of 8 but I was way lighter, couldnt do it now. Its a long grind getting them up.

felt really weak today, probably because I was screwing around with plate pinches a  bunch yesterday also i always seem to do worse on my Wednesday workout and better on my Sunday workout because of the extra rest day. Plus I have a cut on the inside of my pinky joint right hand didn’t feel great doing grippers. Lots of excuses today haha.

Thank you in advance

I have no idea haha. Just for fun when my hands feel tired from normal closes I still feel fresh inverted and can bang out a few sets. Not sure if it helps my regular closes at all but it must build some sort of strength somewhere right?

I Guess so! I never tried them, but it sounds fun for overall hand strength

Yeah I have been doing 3 or 4 sets after my regular closes since I started training grippers. I think they are fun.
