6-21-11: MMS Grippers

6-21-11, Tuesday


Pretty crappy gripper workout today.  Very tempted to not even report it.  But I’m a firm believer in the bad workouts that you work through being the most helpful in the long run.  So here it is in its entire crappiness.


-57lb Trainer for 5 reps-both hands, -81lb #1 for 5 reps-both hands, -110lb #2×1-both hands


-137lb #3×1-both hands     *Notes: Slammed it shut both hands of course.

-151lb #3×1-both hands     *Notes: Strong close lefty – and a 2-second hold shut.  Right hand slammed it shut as usual too.

-165lb Narrow Super Elite-x1-right hand     *Notes: Smashed it shut but I didn’t feel nearly as strong as I have been lately.

-175lb HG350-MISS-right hand     *Notes: Missed by 1/16″.  Just couldn’t finish it off.  Hand felt dumb.

-169lb #3.5-MISS-right hand     *Notes: Missed by 1/16″.  Crap. 

-166lb RB300x1-right hand     *Notes: Closed and held shut for 2 seconds.  Still felt weak though.

-169lb #3.5-MISS-right hand     *Notes: Missed by a sliver.  A sheet of paper wouldn’t have fit between the handles.  But I still saw light on the video playback. 

-165lb Narrow Super Elite-x1-right hand     *Notes: Hard close – but held shut for 1 second.
