7-11-11: MMS Grippers

MMS GRIPPERS

This was my strongest MMS Gripper workout ever.  In 11 years of grip training.  Yes! 

Warmup:

-Trainer-x5-both hands, -#2×5-both hands

Workout:

-137lb #3×1-right hand, -x5-left hand     *Notes: 5 reps lefty is pretty good for me. 

-151lb #3×1-both hands     *Notes: Slammed righty and pretty strong lefty.

-169lb #3.5×1-right hand     *Notes: Solid close.

-174lb Elite-x1-right hand     *Notes: SMASHED shut and held for 2 seconds! 

-179lb Elite-x1-right hand     *Notes: SMASHED shut and held for 3 seconds!  Whoa, this is the strongest close I’ve ever had on this gripper. 

-179lb Elite-x1-right hand     *Notes: Another smash and hold for 2 seconds! 

-179lb Elite-x1-right hand     *Notes: Barely closed this time. 

Shook my hands out between attempts and did some slow walking around the yard.  It was about 100 degrees in the garage when I did this workout.  But heat sure doesn’t hurt the hands’ performance – as anyone who trains grip is well aware.   

For anyone who’s on the fence about Gym Movement…get off the fence!  I did some simple testing and changed up my stance slightly and had a gripper workout to beat all of my previous gripper workouts.  Grip and Rip 2.1 DVD helped me immensely.  Adam T. Glass is discontinuing the DVD and I believe is supplanting it with the Industrial Strength Grip DVD.  Buy them both.
