Have had another session since the above post. Will update soon.

 

I have also ordered from Ironmind.com

 

COC Grippers: Trainers, 1's, 1.5's and 2's

Rolling Thunder Deadlift handle with the pin setup for olympic plates.

 

Bring on the grip strength. (Was failing at 8/10 reps of 80/90kg). I want to focus on generating good grip strength as it will help in my work also. My goal is to close the 2's (hence I also bought 1.5's to help get me there). I will also be incorperating wrist rolls, farmers walk, pinch grips and static holds into my routine.

How'd you go with the grippers? If your grip is failing on 80-90kg you must of found even the 1's hard when you first got them. I started with the trainers, then got the 1's and now I have the 1.5's as well. The 1's I can rep for 10 and I'm repping the 1.5's too now. I noticed the difference in my grip on deadlift straight away.

yeah im a beez dick away from closing them. I just to 2x12 reps each arm and then static holds for 10 seconds a couple of times. Started off a fair way off but now im real close.

 

I hve done a heap of training too, but i keep a log book in my gym of everything I have done and haven't been bothered to put it up here.

 

Not DL'ing though so I might give that a shot tomorrow.

Crap it has been a while since posting here. I have been keeping a log book though.

 

Well I've been training pretty consistently for the last 5 months although diet has been a bit up and down.

 

Just hit 100kg x 20 rep squat in last week. Ghosty to post the video.

 

My weight is sitting at 78.6 tonight but that is after a day's worth of feeding. Pretty good considering I was 68 about 5 months ago. I have put on fat though which is a first for my skinny ass (probably because of so much milk).

 

Pushing roughly the following weight:

 

Squat: 100x22 (or 120x5x5)

DL: 135x8x3

MP: 55x8x3

Bent Rows: 85x8x3

Bench: 70x8x3

Curls: 42.5x8x3

Dips: BW + 15kg 15, 12

I will add that my aim over the next few months is to get to the 200/300/400lb mark on Bench, Squat, Deadlift 1RMs respectively, and keep improving on my weight. I must be pretty close.

Well done mate, good work! thumbsup.gif

 

Thanks Mate,

 

I should add that I pushed for another 1 after the vid stopped. my connection is a bit slow so I cant tell right now but I think it was either 21 or 22 in total. What do you reckon about my depth? Feels lower when you are doing it. The dip or bounce at the very bottom happens pretty quick. I'm going to work on a closer stance and lower depth, maybe pause at the bottom for a bit.

hey mate yeah on and off we are.

 

Problem with Ghosty is at the moment he only has the capacity to do 2 lifts before he's too tired and wants to go home. :whack: havent seen him for a couple of weeks, I think he was talking about getting a gym membership?

 

When he's not around its the full SGR start to finish. Monday, Wednesday and the Fri or Sat.

That being said, you should come sth side for a change of scenery. We are gunna do our own strongman :P we've got big tyres and kegs and shit.
