Watched quite a few of them.
I’ll start posting what I’m doing in the training section. Here’s what I did last night
easy store-bought gripper 2x20
#1 1x5 (I can normally do this gripper 20 plus times, but I cut down on volume here)
#3 1x1 attempt (failed)
choked #3 1x1- braced squeeze and got close, but no close
#2.5 (Left Hand only) 1x1 attempt (failed)
choked #3 retry, down to 10mm or less- same result, no close. I have never touched the handles together on this thing without using my leg to press against.
#2.5 forced close with right hand (I destroyed my hand during the choked #3 attempt)
#1 1x8 warm down
Yes, I have used it but not a whole lot (I’ve been doing heavy rolling thunder one-hand lat pull downs and other things, I don’t want to over do it).
I don’t know if I’m using it wrong or what, but when I get the choked #3 down to less than an inch, I just hold it and try to get the handles to touch. Failed. I got it down to about 10mm last night, or something close to it. Still, I failed to touch the handles.
I don’t think it’s too heavy of a choked gripper either, Based on what I was told before (maybe this reveals that it is, somehow, too heavy). I have had a GHP level 6 since September 2014, still haven’t closed it.
I have closed a #2.5 numerous upon numerous of times over the last 4 years. The #3 was the recommendation.
I started my gripper training overall with more volume, doing warm up and warm down sets of 10-20 with the #1 and 8-13 with the #1.5
Me breaking single jack chain #8 by 3foot long with only my hands and gloves. I've searched everywhere and cant find anything on anyone breaking number 8 with their hands, only other ways. Let me know what you guys think and also if you know anyone who has done this feat before. Have a great fathers day.
Possible or not?,
I just set my goals for 2018 and am not sure if they are crazy or impossible, but one thing is for sure I'm going to give it my all.
COC 3: Now I can close it with a relatively wide set, but not with Credit card : Goal - COC 3 certification.
COC 3.5: Now - 1 cm from close : Goal - parallel set close.
GHP 8: Now - 1cm from close: Goal - parallel set close
Iron Mind Pinch Grip Block: Now - 27.5kg: Goal - 35kg
Iron Mind Rolling Thunder: Now - 67.5: Goal - 80kg
Right Hand MM2, Left Hand MM1
Electronic Hand Dyno.: Now - 80KG: Goal 95KG
Well, there's no point in setting easy goals, if I can get 5 of the 7, it will be great !.
2019 goal is pretty simple, Tetting Hercules with credit card set.😅
