Anvil or Hammer


Posted in Rant by Mike on August 10, 2006

did a very short bit of hand intensive workout last eve. have a blockweight that is from a 70lb hex head (guessing 30 -32 lbs) and one from an 80 (35 – 37). lifted the 70 both hands, 70+1.25, 70+2.5, got stuck on the left hand with 70+3.75.
I played around with the 80 but I’m just stuck for now. I’m sure I’ll be able to lift the 70 plus 10 or 15 lbs before I lift the 80, the width is tough.
I also did a little levering but didn’t make it too interesting. My wrists just weren’t into it. I could lever out of the “bottom position” well enough I just had trouble stabalizing in it on the way down. I played with an easy bolt but there was no chance. I will have to do more grip workouts in the future and play around with where they fit in the scheme of things.
Funny, for a while there I was waiting to be asked to leave, this long old blog on Gripboard and no grip training for months smile.gif. The filip side is that I tend to work a little (very little) extra grip into my workouts. Dunno where grips place is in my world but we’ll find it.]]>
