Used a base of Dry Hands with chalk over that and didn’t need to reapply Dry Hands during the MMS and TNS part of the workout.
-#2×2-right hand, -x1-left hand Did a short video explaining the difference between a “pinch set” and a “push set” for Jordan on the Ironmind forum. Otherwise I would’ve done just a single righty.
-137lb #3×1-both hands Both solid.
-151lb #3×1-right hand, -MISS-left hand Missed lefty by 3/16″! Wow, I haven’t missed on this gripper lefty like that for quite a while. Not sure what’s going on. Righty was like a bomb going off.
-165lb Super Elite-x1-right hand, -MISS-left hand Missed by 3/16″ lefty. Slammed it righty.
-174lb Elite-x1-right hand Slammed and held shut for 2 seconds.
-151lb #3×1-left hand Solid close and a 1-second hold. Makes more sense than missing it by a mile like I did on that other attempt.
-179lb Elite-x1-right hand Crushed it shut and held for 1 second. The 179lb Elite has officially become a “commonplace” close in my gripper workouts now! This should translate to a 180lb+ gripper close at the Fall Grip Decathlon. 2 months away now!
Very strong MMS workout today. Made it short because I just wanted to work up to an attempt on the 179lb Elite to see where I was at. Then I wanted to go on to do some TNS work and a Mouse Pinch workout to finish it off. This will be very good for a more contest-realistic training day too.
-159lb RB330N-MISS-right hand By a sliver! Agonizing to be that close. Had to check the video a half dozen times because it was THAT close. So close that air itself might’ve had to go through single-file.
-159lb RB330N-MISS-right hand Missed by 1/16″. Dang it!
-153lb GNC250-MISS-left hand Missed by 1/16″. So close.
-153lb GNC250x1-right hand Solid close.
-134lb Bone Crusher 300×1-left hand Smashed it shut.
-168lb GNC300-MISS-right hand Missed by 3/16″ but felt pretty strong.
-134lb Bone Crusher 300×1-left hand Slammed it shut.
-159lb RB330N-MISS-right hand Missed by 1/16″ again! I don’t need to repeat all the cuss words I wrote in my training journal about getting this close and not being able to finish it off.
Stopped the TNS part of the workout there and looking back I should’ve finished with a success. Even if it was dropping way down to the easy #3 and smashing a single or two. TNS strength was probably down a bit due to the nasty density PR I got on the 3rd.
