5-11-11: MMS Grippers, Mouse Pinch, and 2″ Vertical Bar

This final workout before the KC Qualifier II was just another chance to hit my openers and make sure I don’t go too long between workouts before contest day. 

Had a hard time even hitting my opener on the Mouse Pinch and that does not sit well with me.  I will still open at 160lbs but I had to take 2 attempts to even pull that weight in this workout.


Worked up to a single with the 169lb #3.5 righty.  Very strong close.


Took me 2 attempts to even pull my opener of 161lbs.  Not a good pinch day!


Worked up to a strong single at 253lbs righty.
