It’s been a while since I posted

I tore my right middle finger skin badly pulling 380lbs on the middle fingers deadlift last week.  Now it’s 5 days until the USAWA Grip Champs and it is healing up about as slowly as I expected.  It will probably hold for a single low-poundage effort at the contest.  Not happy at all with that.


I haven’t done any contest-related lifting since the skin tear.  I’ve been keeping myself occupied working and trying to do other non-strenuous exercise with Tiny Overlord.

Here she is after some stair sprints yesterday:


If I do manage to pull at least 140kg (308 pounds) at the contest, I will do this pose to celebrate:
