12-1-11: 2-Hand Mouse Pinch-65mm

12-1-11, Thursday


-105.4×1     Felt a bit hard.  Widest setting I’ve ued on my Mouse Pinch and I’ve had it now for 3 years.  I have a wide hand span from pinky to thumb…but this didn’t feel good at all.  In fact, the very first set actually did some almost microscopic tear-damage to my thumb web.  Just the first set.  With a light weight.  Knew already that it wasn’t a great choice in terms of possible skin damage.  But I wanted to set a baseline max and see where it led anyway.

-131.4×1     Pulled about 12″.  This felt very close to a max.  Was surprised that it was so low.  Figured I’d be closer to 150lbs…

-137.2×1     Pulled about 16″.  Okay, got the hand position right.  Or at least better. 

-142×1     Pulled about 16″.  Very hard pull – but solid all the way from the floor to lockout and then back down to the floor.

-150×1     Pulled about 17″.  Hard.  But solid all the way. 

Now I have a baseline MAX for 65mm on my Mouse Pinch.  My wife got home a bit sooner than I had planned on.  So I shut my workout down.  Might have been good for about 5lbs more but then again it might’ve totally been glued to the floor with just a few pounds added.
