6-28-11: MMS Grippers

6-28-11, Tuesday


My last MMS gripper workout was pretty weak.  It was exactly a week ago.  This one mirrored that unfortunately.


-57lb Trainer for 10 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.

-151lb #3×1-right hand, -MISS-left hand     *Notes: Strong close righty – and a 2-second hold shut.  Missed by 1/16″ lefty.

-166lb RB300-x1-right hand     *Notes: Hard close – had to review video just to make sure the handles touched solidly.

-168lb GNC300-MISS-left hand     *Notes: Picked this up by mistake- thought it was the GNC250.  Missed by 1/4″. 

-169lb #3.5-MISS-right hand     *Notes: Missed by a sliver.  Had to review video because it was so close.  A piece of paper wouldn’t fit between the handles.

-153lb GNC250-x1-left hand     *Notes: Slammed it shut.  Love this narrow gripper. 

-169lb #3.5-MISS-right hand     *Notes: Missed by a sliver again.  Just couldn’t finish it off today.  Very frustrating.

-159lb RB330N-MISS-left hand     *Notes: Missed by 1/8″. 

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

Well it looks like it’s back to the old crappy MMS workout slump that I was in earlier this year.  It’ll pass.
