19MM BLOCK SET GRIPPERS
-121lb GNC200x1-both hands
-137lb #3×1-both hands Pretty easy both hands. Weaker lefty, but that’s usual.
-151lb #3×1-right hand, -MISS-left hand Pretty hard righty for some reason. Not even close lefty.
-Quad Band-Gun Metal (uncalibrated)-x1-right hand Much harder than it should’ve been.
-Quad Band-Gun Metal (uncalibrated)-x2-right hand Even getting 2 reps isn’t going to do much for me at the Fall Grip Decathlon. I’d better up my game in a hurry! I am terrible at reps and horrible at the block setting too.
-Quad Band-Gun Metal (uncalibrated)-MISS-right hand Missed by 1/16″. Pretty aggravating to miss by that close of a margin.
-Quad Band-Gun Metal (uncalibrated)-MISS-right hand Missed by 1/8″. Strength is gone for the harder attempts. Better pack it in and do some easier attempts now.
-151lb #3×1-right hand Very hard – too soon after my last miss on the Quad Band.
-Trainer-x5-both hands Restarted the workout about 5 hours later. Only wanted to do a bit more to up the volume slightly.
-#2×5-both hands Just adding to the volume on the 19mm block set closes.
-121lb GNC200x5-both hands Hard-ish at this point.
-137lb #3×5-right hand, -x3-left hand Hard on both hands.
Ordered David Horne’s 20mm aluminum block immediately after finishing this workout! That’s how serious I am about doing better at this event at the contest in November. For this workout I used a gripper handle (COC handles are 19mm diameter) and it worked okay.
