Anvil or Hammer


Posted in Grip by Mike on August 21, 2006

Foot is doing a bit better today. Looks like just a bit of bruising will be the worst of it, I think I got lucky there. I am shocked at how sore I am today. I don’t get sore terribly often so it’s a good reminder of the things I’m not doing. I spend most of the day wondering why my upper back, traps and tris were sore. It wasn’t until I was coming home from work that I recalled trying to puch Dan’s truck. Ah, there it is.

Gonna have to get me some cleetes and do that again.

Played a bit of frisbee in the park and took a walk, good recovery.

Tomorrow will probably be a bit o’ sandbags.
Probably another Kettlbell Wednesday on the horizon.
Climbing and who knows what all else.

One of these days I will head back into the gym and squat again, in the meantime, I’m enjoying the outdoors.

I have been playing with grip a bit. It’s a hard balance, cluimbing, kettlebells and grip. They all lean so firmly on grip that I usually do one thing per night. I’ve been lifting my 35lb block weight regularly, even attached some weights with magnets but haven’t reached the weight of my 40lber. The wide there is another issue. Been levering a bit, nothing worth writing down. Playing with my grippers, trying to see if I convince myself once and for all that I need to close the 3, haven’t convinced myself yet. I think the two best grip workouts of the week have been the 100 reps on a kettlebell and the farmers walk ripping itself from my hands, I can’t beat that with any grip equipment.
