Just like I thought, when I went back to using chalk on my hands and grippers I’d slam some grippers. No PRs today but I was strong and got some “no doubt” closes on a few good grippers today. Left hand is still in a big downward slump and I don’t know why.
-Trainer-x20 reps-both hands
-Atomgripz Triple Band-x1-both hands
-146lb #3×1-both hands
-160lb #3×1-right hand, -154lb #3×1-left hand *Notes: Slammed the 160lb #3 righty and barely closed the 154lb #3 lefty. Have missed this #3 lefty a few times which has really surprised me since it used to be an everyday close for me lefty.
-169lb Super Elite-x1-right hand *Notes: Very solid close on video. Seems like the past few months this gripper has been one that I miss on a first or second attempt and then close it.
-154lb #3-MISS-left hand *Notes: I’m done training lefty today. It’s too much of a bummer. If it wants to get with the program I might give it some special time with the grippers…
-T7-x1-right hand! *Notes: Good close!
-T7-x1-right hand! *Notes: Another solid close on video! Always pleased to close this gripper. Even though the spread is pretty narrow (2 and 5/8″) it binds up hard at the last 1/8″.
*Overall Notes: Good strong workout today! Afterwards I rested a few minutes and then slammed my RB300 and Todd Coenen’s hard #3.5 from parallel in a hoseclamp righty. Well, rested a few minutes inbetween each close actually.
