9-27-11: Mouse Pinch-52mm and Blob

9-27-11, Tuesday


Used only chalk in this workout.  Left the Dry Hands off and the temperature was 79 degrees when I finished.

-104×3     Pulled all reps about 18″. 

-130×1     Pulled about 18″.  

-156×1     Moderate.  Pulled about 18″.

-166×1     Hard.  Pulled about 18″.  Felt like I have more in me.    

-171×1     Pulled about 18″.     Very hard pull.  Felt like I might have 5lbs more in me…but maybe not.

-176-MISS     Pulled about 7″.  That was only about 2″ short of a legal lift.  Crap. 

-176×1     Hard pull!  Pulled about 12″.  Starting to get abraded thumb webs now.  Not tearing yet – but they will be soon if I keep this up.

-182-MISS     Pulled about 1″.  Whatevs.

-182-MISS     Nothing at all.  Thumb web abrasions are now very near to tearing.

Forearms had that “broken glass” feeling so I knew it was time to stop.  But I considered dropping the weight and getting in a bunch of singles at a lower weight to build some volume.



-50 York-full pull-right hand, -MISS-left hand     Pulled to full lockout righty and got no movement lefty.  The usual – or at least the usual for the past month. 

Ended my Blob workout even though I might’ve been good for several more full pulls righty.  That “broken glass” feeling in my right forearm especially was an effective warning for me to stop.
