30MM BLOCK SET GRIPPERS
Yes, I trained grippers yesterday. But I’m upping my gripper frequency a bit in the final 4 weeks before the Fall Grip Decathlon. Not going to train every day of course. But at least 3 or 4 times a week on grippers should be just fine if I’m not going all-out every workout.
Used David Horne’s 30mm aluminum block set for all my sets.
-#2×5-both hands Felt harder than it should have. Didn’t use Dry Hands yet.
***APPLIED DRY HANDS*** A nickel-sized glob of Dry Hands is turning out to be best.
-137lb #3×3-right hand, -x2-left hand Had a few more in my righty and maybe one more lefty. Not trying to break the strength bank though. Just accumulating some work today.
-151lb #3×1-right hand Hard close. Not a good gripper day in other words when my normal #3 feels hard.
-139lb RB210x2-left hand Solid closes.
-159lb RB330N-MISS-right hand Missed by 1/16″. Dammit.
-151lb #3-MISS-left hand Missed by 1/8″.
-159lb RB330N-x1-right hand Solid close – but hard.
-153lb GNC250-MISS-left hand Missed by a sliver.
-137lb #3×3-right hand, -x2-left hand Solid closes on both hands. Thought I had picked up the 151lb #3 and then soon realized I hadn’t when I got solid reps with it – haha!
-151lb #3×1-right hand Solid close – but hard again.
-153lb GNC250-MISS-left hand Missed by a sliver again. A sheet of paper wouldn’t have fit in the gap.
-153lb GNC250x1-right hand Missed a 2nd rep by 1/8″. Hard – but solid – close.
-137lb #3×2-left hand Solid closes.
-137lb #3×4-right hand, -x2-left hand Might’ve had another rep in both hands.
-151lb #3×1-right hand Barely closed it.
-137lb #3×2-left hand Solid reps.
All in all not a bad workout since I had a pretty solid MMS workout the day before.
