3-7-11: Rolling Thunder – 1st workout in 2 years

3-7-11, Monday


-157×1-both hands

-189×1-right hand, -MISS-left hand.  High pull righty and nothing at all lefty. 

-194×1-right hand!  High pull again – on video.  Now I have a baseline to work from. 

-201-MISS-both hands.  Nothing on either hand. 

-178×1-both hands.  High pulls both hands.  Lefty max – now I have a baseline to work from for both hands.

*Overall Notes: Been 2 years since I’ve worked out with the Rolling Thunder and I’ve really missed it.  Didn’t realize how much until I grabbed it for the first pull.  At the grip contest, in the grip medley event, there will be a Rolling Thunder loaded with a total of 180 pounds.  I want to make sure it’s not a problem even after whatever other events precede it.  I used the “water trick” on all the sets.  If you even care what that is – but don’t already know – let me know.  Confused yet?  Ha!
