9-29-11: MMS Grippers

9-29-11, Thursday


-Trainer-x10-both hands

-#2×1-both hands

-137lb #3×1-both hands     Strong on both hands. 

-151lb #3×1-both hands     Strong on both hands again.   

-167lb Super Elite-x1-right hand     Strong close and 1-second hold.  Weird thing is that the close itself FELT hard.  But I reviewed the video and it looks like I just destroyed it. 

-179lb Elite-x1-right hand     CRUSHED it.  Held shut for 4 seconds!  Felt almost effortless!  Not what I expected after how the easy Super Elite felt on the set before this. 

-165lb Super Elite-MISS-left hand     Missed by 1/16″.  Very close on this one.

-174lb Elite-x1-right hand     Smashed shut and held closed for 2 seconds.  Should’ve tried to rep it.

-168lb GNC300-MISS-left hand     Missed by 1/8″.  Not bad.

Good strong workout.  If I had a gripper in the low 180s I think it would’ve been a solid close today.
