7-3-11: MMS Grippers

7-3-11, Sunday


My last MMS gripper workout was weak.  This one was on the upswing.


-57lb Trainer for 10 reps-both hands, -81lb #1 for 5 reps-both hands, -110lb #2×1-both hands, -139lb RB210x1-right and 4 reps-left hand. 


-151lb #3×1-right hand     *Notes: Slammed it shut.

-166lb RB300-x1-right hand     *Notes: Solid close today.

-169lb #3.5×1-right hand     *Notes: Solid close – but not a lot of strength left over.

-151lb #3×1-left hand     *Notes: Hard – but solid – close. 

-174lb Elite-MISS-right hand     *Notes: Off by 1/16″.  Very tempted to try it again but I decided to go for a technically harder gripper – but one with a narrower spread. 

-159lb RB330N-x1-left hand     *Notes: Might be a PR this year lefty.  My left hand is all over the place since last year.

-175lb HG350x1-right hand     *Notes: Barely closed.  First time closing this gripper actually.  Not a PR but it just happened to be a loaner gripper that I only haven’t closed because of some sub-par workouts. 

-175lb HG350x1-right hand     *Notes: More solid than the first close.




-RB330N-for 2 MISSES-right hand     *Notes: Both off by 1/8″. 

-137lb #3×1-left hand     *Notes: Barely closed it.  Left elbow hurting quite a bit now.

-153lb GNC250x1-right hand     *Notes: Very solid close. 

-137lb #3×4-right hand     *Notes: All but the 4th rep were very solid.
