2-HAND MOUSE PINCH-55MM
-104X1 Felt heavier than 104lbs. This has been the standard lately – the weight feeling heavier than it really is. Not a good sign. Blah, blah, blah. And blah.
-140×1 Felt about 15lbs heavier than 140lbs. My hands aren’t tired. The gripper workout was done much earlier in the day. Like over 12 hours before. So I can’t blame it on that.
-166×1 Barely got this lift. Pulled about 9″ – when the minimum pull height in a contest is about 8.5″.
-172-MISS Nothing at all.
-172-MISS Uh, nothing.
-172-MISS Wow. Nothing at all. Tore my thumb web pretty badly though. How does that happen when I don’t even move the weight?
I want to use about 65 different curse words to describe how much this workout sucked. But you get the drift.
1-HAND MOUSE PINCH-55MM
-60.4×1-both hands Pulled about 20″. Well over the minimum 8.5″ limit. Figured it couldn’t hurt to do more pinch since my 2-Hand Pinch session was terrible. Torn thumb web didn’t bother me much on the 1-Hand Pinch because of the slightly different positioning I use compared to the 2-Hand Pinch setup.
-71×1-both hands Pulled about 22″-righty and 13″ lefty. Both were solid lifts.
-76×1-right hand, -MISS-left hand Pulled about 16″ right hand. Nothing lefty.
-82-MISS-both hands Pulled about 3″ righty and nothing lefty. Pleased to get a little air actually. Don’t remember what my max 1-Hand Mouse Pinch is offhand. Have to look it up today.
-73.8×1-right hand, -MISS-left hand Got about 6″ lefty. Felt like my right forearm was going to snap in two. So I stopped the 1-Hand Mouse Pinch part of this workout.
Only counted the weight of the added plates to my standard loading pin and the 2″ diameter washer that I used for the “coin”. The width of the washer was 1.4mm and the diameter was 2″. Also used 2 carabiners to hook it to my loading pin. Weight was probably only 1.5lbs or thereabouts so it doesn’t matter much anyway if I just put the weight of the plates lifted.
-10.6×1-both hands Full lifts-both hands. Felt super easy.
-20.4×1-both hands. Both full lifts. Felt easy but I know this is one of those lifts where a few pounds suddenly makes it unliftable.
-30×1-both hands Pulled about 13″-both hands. Missed this weight first try righty.
-50 York-pulled about 5″-right hand, -MISS-left hand Was surprised it even left the ground considering my hands felt pretty tired from my cruddy pinch workout so far.
-50 York-PULL TO HIP-right hand!, -MISS-left hand Very strong pull righty! Quite happy with that since the rest of my pinch workout sucked. Must mean that I’m finally building up some pinch strength-endurance. That will come in handy for grip contests!
-50 York-pulled about 2″-right hand, -ASSISTED LIFT-left hand Used my index finger placed under the edge of the Blob and gave it just enough assistance to get a full lift lefty. Tried to resist the pull on the way down and get a slow negative. Didn’t work out that way in real life…but I tried.
