3-30-11: FBBC 2″ Vertical Bar, Mouse Pinch, and Blobs

3-30-11, Wednesday


-116×1-both hands

-163×1-both hands

-207×1-both hands

-242×1-both hands     *Notes: Felt heavier than it normally does so I had forewarning that it wouldn’t be a record-breaking workout.  No worries though.

-278-MISS-both hands     *Notes: No movement at all.  Not a good thing since 275lbs will be what I call for at the contest after my opener of 250lbs. 

-278×1-left hand, -MISS-right hand     *Notes: Made a hair over the 2″ minimum height lefty and only got 1/2″ of movement righty. 

-278-MISS-both hands     *Notes: Got 1″ of movement lefty and nothing righty. 

*Overall Notes: Pretty decent workout even though I only pulled 278lbs.  Tested myself with the Grip and Rip 2.1 (Gym Movement) biofeedback methods and it actually suggested that 2″ vbar wasn’t the best exercise to train today.  I ignored that advice and paid the price with a subpar workout.  I chose this route because I wanted to get some work in on the 2″ vbar and to test the results of the test that suggested it wouldn’t be a good exercise today.  I’d say the test passed with flying colors.  Which makes me an idiot not to listen to it.
