12-4-11: TNS Grippers

12-4-11, Sunday


-Trainer-x5-both hands

-110lb #2×5-right hand, -x3-left hand     Right forearm tweak announced itself even at this low level.  Not the worst it’s ever been – but about how it felt at the contest 3 weeks ago.  So the rest hasn’t helped as much as I would like – but it’s a tad better.

-121lb GNC200x1-both hands     Not terrible pain righty.  Had quite a few more reps in the tank.  But I had plans to attempt the RB210 and the RB330N – both of which I was pretty sure weren’t going anywhere for my right hand – or lefty. 

-139lb RB210-MISS-both hands     Missed both by a mile.  Really hurt my right forearm to squeeze the wide-spread RB210.  Lefty is just too weak lately to TNS this monster.

-159lb RB330N-MISS-both hands     Missed by a long shot both hands.  Probably closer righty just because the RB330N is so much narrower spread than the RB210.  Still hurt the right forearm a lot. 

-121lb GNC200x3-both hands     Had a few more righty and maybe one more lefty.  Not terrible pain righty.  The narrower grippers are a bit easier on my right forearm tweak by a significant amount.  Good to know.

-110lb #2×1-both hands     Felt the forearm tweak quite a bit.  Not good.  Makes the gripper feel so much harder.  I’d guesstimate it makes any gripper feel about 20lbs harder. 

Not a good workout.  Not even close to being a good workout.  Still glad I at least tested the right forearm to see how it’s healing.  I might not have been able to TNS my easiest #3 – and that hasn’t happened for a long time.  Only due to injury-tweak, but it’s still not comforting.
