10-24-09: MMS Grippers

10-24-09, Saturday


-112lb #2 for 5 reps

-146lb #3 for 1

-154lb #3 for 1

-T7 for 1!, and 1 MISS

*Overall Notes: Very short gripper workout on purpose.  I spent a large portion of the day power washing the house and scraping and painting inside.  Those things tend to pump up my forearms, but not in a good way.  First attempt on the T7 was the best and the set was just barely outside parallel.  The 2nd attempt was also very close.  Only off about 1/16″.  Lefty I closed Blobert’s 154lb #3 with room to spare.

Time to send my T7 out to Matt Cannon so he can calibrate it and send me the results.  I sold my power rack, otherwise I’d be able to calibrate my own grippers still.
