Morgan,

Nice work on the 295 no set. How does that 3 compare to the one you sent me? The one I got from you is a beast so if its close thats impressive!

Didn’t know where to post this....I figured here....As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized what’s impotant in life - people and experiences.   This is a picture of me and my 78lb mother-in-law wearing a

A short treadmill, hspu, pull-up workout then some riding w the boy.  It’s his first free wheel bike and he’s not used to standing up and riding slow - good times!

Thanks for the kind words.  Ill post up a video once I drop a few lbs 😉 3/13/18 1 min treadmill walk, 30 sec handstand against wall/balance/hspu, 1 min seated skierg.  10 rounds in 30:39.  R

I dont think its as hard as that one, I know its more used. I do have a question about the 295. I got it from PDA a couple of months ago. Its not stamped 295. The handles are marked w/I think a date (12/01). The other handle is marked "441" and my initials "mmg". Is the 441 the inch lb rating or something else? The gripper is right on par w/the MM1 replica I sent you (like a real easy #3).

Wed 10-20-04

Two hand plate pinch holds (45's w/a purple band thru) - 1x5sec, 1x10sec, 1x15sec

These work the thumb really good - tears up the skin in the thumb tho

Blobs - 35x1, 50x1, 50(2fingers)x1, 50(3fingers)x1, 50(1finger)xFail bad -

If Sean and Nick can do it so can I (was hoping anyway). Was tough, but did it. Tried one finger, didnt even budge.

3" steel pinch block - 50x1, 60x1, 70x1, 80x1, 85xF

Little Big Horn - 100x1, 155x1, 175x1 (hover left), 185xHover right

Blob toss (overhand catches) - 35 x 10 catches

Thats a lot of gripping in one day for me. Probably why my hands have been feeling like crap that last few weeks. Need to tone it down a bit.

My hands feel terrible lately. My right thumb still hurts from a bending injury over a month ago now. Gonna back off on the volume for a while.

Gonna cut way back on the gripping for a while - my hands are not responding well lately and I need some time to heal up. I'm also going to be focusing on bench pressing (my back cannot handle the other two lifts competitively) as I'd like to compete in the 2006 Can-Am games. Its a police/fire games that takes place every two years, rotating between Canada and the US. The gold medal lifts for the last few years in my weight class are well within my reach - IPF rules. Anyhow, I will be gripping some - basically will be G-Rex, wrist roll and TT a couple of times a week.

Seems to be working good. I've been working on how my hands feel rather than a set schedule. Also, I've been alternating a light (5-10reps) with a heavy one (singles). That, along with the low volume, has allowed me to make good gains in the G-Rex and wrist roll.

G-Rex (light) - 100x10, 125x15, 150x15

FB Roller - 105x1 (hands absolutely spent from G-Rex)

Big Squeeze Cable Row - 60x5, 70x5R/3L, 80x3R/1L

The Big Squeeze db handle has to be one of the best all-around grip tools there is. What an awesome hand/thumb workout.

Friday 11-26-04

3" Crusher Cable Rows - 80x3, 100x1, 110x1(L), 120x1®, 130x1/2®, 110x1/2(L).

Blob DL - 35x1, 50x1, Blobette(~55lbs)x1®, Blobette(+lb or so of shot)xHover®.

R-Ring Lean Back's - 200x1, 250x1, 300x1R/FL

Hooked the ring to my low pulley and simply leaned back.

Kudos to Clay and the other big R-Ring lifters. With the lighter weights I was able to keep the ring under the callouses of my hands. At 300, no way, about ripped them all off. More of a mental lift (pain tolerance) than anything else. All kinds of broken blood vessels in my fingers now :help I'd like to try it with a loading pin next time and see what the difference is. Workout ended up being more than I wanted to do, but I felt motivated.

The grippers werent the best, but I've been working them some for the last few days. I just ordered a RB 300N and 330N so I can see where I stand on the certs.

Oops forgot - heres a form check video on my squats VIDEO HERE

Band Lateral Raise - 2xMonster Minis x 8, 2MM x 6, 2MM x 4.5

No grip today, but heres a TNS close of my RB300N I got yesterday - VIDEO HERE

Not a bad workout, shoulders feel great. The inverted KB presses are tough (fun though). My bodyweight is slowly coming down (strength is still going up though). I've really watched my diet the last couple of months and its starting to pay off. Heres a sample daily diet for me:

6:30ish - 2 pieces whole wheat toast, 3 eggs, 3 egg whites, glass of skim milk

9:00ish - 1/2 cup cooked oats, 3/4 cup blueberries, 2 scoops whey

11:00ish (post workout) - 1/4 cup raw oats, 1 cup nat applesauce, 2 scoops whey

12:00ish - Large sirloin burger (4% ground sirloin), 1/2 yam, 1/2 plate steamed broc, squash or brussel

3:00ish - 1/2 tub of Fat free Cottage cheese, 1/2 can pineapple (no sugar added), 1 scoop whey

6:00ish - Can of very low sodium albacore w/some fat free mayo mixed in, steamed broc

9:00ish - Usually more ff cottage cheese and whey.

The times vary from day to day, but thats pretty much what I've been eating lately. I'm gonna add some brown rice though. My proteins have been coming mainly from chicken breast, 4% sirloin, tuna, white fish (mainly tilapia - good stuff), ff cottage cheese/milk and whey. I've been eating a ton of brussel sprouts and broc. If any of you dieticians wanna give me some pointers I'd love some input.
