12-9-10: MMS Grippers

12-9-10, Thursday


-Trainer-X10-both hands

-HG300X1-both hands

-146lb #3X1-both hands

-160lb #3X1-both hands…super solid close righty so I knew it was going to be a good day.  Solid close lefty and then I had some intense left elbow pain so I finished my gripper workout for the left hand right here.

-169lb Super Elite-X1-right hand…very solid close on video. 

-T7-X1-right hand…another very solid close on video!  Still rare for me to close the T7 with authority.  Shouldn’t be that way after having it about a year.

-IROC-Z’s hard #3.5-for 2 MISSES-right hand…first attempt was about 1/16″ away from being closed!  And I didn’t capture it on video due to a problem with my digital camera on that one.  2nd attempt was about 1/8″ off.  Not bad!

*Overall Notes: Weird about my left elbow suddenly becoming very tender and having to stop the workout there.   But lefty was strong today and I might’ve gone on to close something even harder than the 160lb #3.  Righty was strong today!
