    Is that not common in grip training?

    Not for me. I'm using a eye bolt so the threads biting into my skin. Grip wise people get sore skin cos the bar moves. My grip should mean that the bar stays where I damn well grip it lol. That and the chalk

    Thursday
    So after the gym yesterday we went hunting for the frozen waterfall we'd seen online (I'll add a photo). Today, it's less the snow (we've 8-inches arriving at 3pm) but the cold. The windchill in places is -25. Like Trevors neck of the woods (chilly Canada). The weather may have frozen the water in my pipes but I'll always cross the frozen waste to get to the gym

    Friday
    No work today - no trains were running. Couple of grab shots of the frozen over ponds nearby then back in the warm. Snow drifts in the nearby mountains have come with avalanche warnings. Not a common occurrence let me tell you.

    Two hand pinch
    Dropped a load of weight and did a proper volume workout. If I have it in me I'm gonna do the same with more weight tomorrow 82.7-kilos x 3, 4, then 5 x 5 reps

    Saturday
    Faffing about with a frozen pipe bursting. It's all thawing out now and I'll fix this tomorrow. It's the 3rd day with no running water.

    Two hand pinch
    85.2-kilos x 5 x 5 reps

    And, as I'm a MORON, I have to switch from the timed work to max (which I prefer) on the pick axe. So I'll be fkin destroying that tomorrow. Last time I did it I had the world record. Then, all of minutes later, David Horne took it back. So let's make him sweat. Annoying I f**kd up. Newbie mistake. Watch that shit fly. I'll pinch again Monday - adding another 2.5kg.

    Sunday
    So we went out early to catch the last few bits of frozen ice as the thaw seems to have started. I knew I had one leak to fix from a burst pipe so we picked up supplies. The plan was to do more pick axe work later.

    But... on starting the repairs (first one was fairly straight forward using push-fit couplers) we turn on the water...not one more leak, not two, not even three but SIX more sections of pipe to fkin fix. It went dark before I got even half done. I'm gonna be busy this week.

    Yikes, best of luck on this chore that is turning into a major project. Let's hope the worst cold is gone.

    People from my school are spending a week in London right now. In March 2001, I was on that London trip. Really enjoyed the Imperial War Museum on the South Bank. Incredible place.
