Here is my day:

School: 7:30-2:00

Lifting: 3:30-4:30 (worked at rigorous pace)

Grip Work: 5:30-6:15

My lifting went as so:

Ran 10 minutes at 8:00 mile time

Bench Press with 45lb. dumbbells 3X10

Hammer Curl with 25lb. dumbbells 3X10

Row Machine 1X10 100lbs. 1X10 110lbs. 1X10 120lbs.

Pull Ups/Dips superset 3X10 each alternating

Lateral Raises with 20lb. dumbbells 3X10


I felt really weak in this session...maybe I should do grip before my lifting?

Lever: 8lb. sledge to face twice w/each hand, rear levering X5 half way up handle w/each hand

RT:missed 95lb. w/each, 65lb. to full DL w/each, 75lb. to full DL w/each, 80lb. to full DL w/each

Plates: Negatives with 2X25 twice w/each hand, negatives with 4X10 twice w/each hand

Block weights didn't go so well:

-25lb. blockX5 bent over row w/each

-25lb. blockX5 curl w/each hand

-25lb. block by face to full DL w/each hand

-Negatives with 30 lb. block weight w/each hand

-30 lb. block to full DL w/right hand, missed with left

-35lb. block miss w/each hand


-#1X3 misses

-#1X3 negatives for 5 seconds each

The ending grip (block and grippers) did not go well at all...

It's looking good Travis!!! Definitely start up a grip specific day though where you don't bother with other lifts and just grip work. :rock :rock :rock

If you HAVE to do grip on the same day as your workout, do the grip stuff after you warmup/run and maybe do a set of non-grip dependant excersise like Bench or even better Squats. Many a PR has been set with grippers after doing a couple sets of squats.

Rows/pullups/curls etc. will destroy your grip for the day since you have to HOLD onto the bar for such a long period of time. That'a why your grip workout was so hard...

The lifting will not be affected if you do them after grip. Grip sucks if you do it after lifting...

How do you suggest I arrange my grip day? I have a sledge, block weights, RT, grippers, plates...I think I want to hit all of those in the same workout. Any opinions are greatly appreciated.

Definitely do not put blockweights in front of grippers. They should always be last in your workout because they will destroy your hands for anything else. Orderwise do Grippers, thickbar, pinch/blockweights, levers.

Yup, usually you can still perform well in pinch after doing grippers, so long as you don't FRY yourself on grippers... Do RT or pinch next, you can expirement with which one you do first, suprisingly sometimes I perform better on the second one I do (cause I'm warmed up better maybe?) I do levering last since it's performance seems least affected by all the other things and I use it to totally destroy my grip...

Once you start bending I would do that before levering but after pinch...

Today I had swimming for two hours, then came home and at 2:45 this is what I did for today:

CoC Trainer 1X10 each hand

CoC #1 1X10 each hand


1X100 each hand with one rubber band

1X75 each hand with four rubber bands

2X50 each hand with four rubber bands

Again, not too much, as I have baseball practice tonight. Tomorrow is my all-grip day.

hubbing plates!!! If you get a kettlebell go with either a something between 30 and 60lbs, they're good for learning techniuque :rock :rock :rock

Do you have a gripper harder than a #2 for NEG's? I would think that would help more then NEG's on your goal gripper. How close are you on the #2 as maybe a #1.5 would be beneficial.

I've had very good success doing grip training at the end of my normal workouts, but doing grippers on a separate day 2 times per week.

GL on the #2...

Sounds good, you are making some serious gains so I would keep up this routine until you stop and then throw some new stuff in for a while
