Only wanted to work up to my contest opener. 6 weeks until the Fall Grip Decathlon. Still about 12lbs heavier than I need to be in order to compete in the 199lb weight class though. Gotta get on it!
-110lb #2×1-both hands
-137lb #3×1-both hands Slams on both hands. Stronger than I have been lately lefty. This gripper is almost never a struggle lefty – unless I’m having a terrible day. But my closing speed lefty was very fast today.
-151lb #3×1-right hand Slammed shut. Didn’t attempt lefty since I wanted to keep my left hand strong for setting the 179lb Elite.
-166lb RB300x1-right hand Felt a bit harder than usual. Not worried since this happened in the last MMS workout too and I was just fine.
-179lb Elite-x1-right hand Barely closed it. Not happy with this so I took some rest and gave it another shot.
-179lb Elite-x1-right hand Strong close this time! No long pause like I’ve been doing lately but it was still a solid close so I’m fine with that.
Ended the workout on this high note. I don’t have a gripper harder than 179lbs right now…well, that’s technically not true. I do have a 282lb Atomgripz Hexa Band gripper. Haha! That won’t be closed by a human. Ever. At least not MMS.
20MM BLOCK SET GRIPPERS
Didn’t expect any magic to happen since my top-end MMS strength wasn’t anything special today. Wasn’t surprised in this workout.
I got my David Horne World of Grip 20mm/30mm aluminum block in the mail today and used it in this workout. Love it! And it’s going to get a lot of use.
-Quad Band-Gun Metal (uncalibrated)-x2-right hand Solid closes. Crappy camera angle though and I am trying to get a lot better about that with the block set closes.
-Quad Band-Gun Metal (uncalibrated)-x2-right hand Strong closes. Good video this time.
-166lb RB300x1-right hand Barely got this. Losing strength quickly today. Not a good thing!
-167lb Super Elite-MISS-right hand Missed by a sliver! A piece of paper wouldn’t have fit between the handles.
-167lb Super Elite-MISS-right hand Missed by 3/16″. Wow, terrible set and a terrible attempt.
Workout is over as of now. Enjoyed using David Horne’s 20mm block instead of a gripper handle like I’ve been doing for the past month or so.
