    Default Mobster trains Grip HARD! And other stuff too...

    I'm currently training for the Peter Horne memorial event in April, the British in May and the Chad Woodhall (win a $1000) in June (if I am able to go).

    Friday PM
    Trained grippers this morning (was a little off) and then this evening, in spite of a busy'ish day went to the other gym (Gymnation) and did the following:

    Two hand pinch (70mm thickness - see note)
    set up (43.6-kilos) x 6 reps, plus 30-kilos (73.6) x 3 reps, plus 40-kilos (83.6) x 1 rep, plus 50-kilos (93.6) x 1 rep, plus 55-kilos (98.6) x 1 rep and then a PB on this set up and thickness of plus 60-kilos (103.6) x 1 rep, dropped back to 98.6-kilos and did 12 x 1 reps with it (roughed up the skin nicely). I decided to do 70mm as the last few times I've been killing myself too much with my regular width (44mm) etc so a change seemed a good idea. Seemed I was right.

    Talking and chatting too much as per and then

    2" V-Bar
    Using the same 2" 35-inch long bar, but with my hand at the 24-inch height, as part of the set up as above and an Olympic collar (tapped to super tightness) and weighing 16.4-kilos on the gym scales I did the following:
    B/Hands - plus 45-kilos x 1 rep @ , plus 60-kilos x 1 rep @, plus 75-kilos x 1 rep @, plus 90-kilos x 1 rep @, plus 105-kilos x 1 rep @ then

    L/H: 105-kilos (121.4-kilos / 267.8lbs) x 2 more singles (3 in total)
    R/H: 112.5-kilos (128.9-kilos / 283.58lbs) x 3 x 1 reps. NB: This is a lift in the Chad Woodhall challenge event and according to John Beatty's FBBC website the record on there is 289lbs. This is the second time I've done it seriously. Sweet

    Saturday
    Started off with chest n' back
    As before I'm still not benching (not since Dec 20th when I did a 190-kilo/418lbs single) due to r/shoulder problems. So...

    At Gymantion
    Pec dec
    Cocked up by reading info from the session before last so...
    16p x 8 reps, 35p x 8 reps, stack x 10 reps

    s/set

    Pullovers
    12p x 8 reps, 18p x 8 reps, stack plus 22.5-kilos x 6 reps

    Assisted Dips
    -80lbs x 8 reps, -60lbs x 8 reps

    Dips
    bwt x 8 reps harder on triceps than chest which is good in light of the shoulder issues.

    At my gym 10 mins or so later

    Low row
    70-kilos x 8 reps, 90-kilos x 8 reps, 112.5-kilos x 6 reps ran out of steam so stopped.
    Rest

    One hand pinch
    In the June comp as part of the medley there is a pinch with one hand 2 45's.
    2 thin 15-kilo Alex (Tm) plates x 3 reps a hand (lift from floor onto block and down again.
    L/H: same but with a 1.6-kilo pin through them x 9 singles alt with
    R/H: same and pin and 3.75-kilos added for 10 attempts (9 successful).
    My left thumb, as with my right, was chewed up from the thick two handed stuff yesterday and this thin one handed stuff just chewed it a little more (saw some blood, only a spot mind).

    To finish I took a pair of 10-kilo plates outside and threw them from hand to hand until they dropped at 40-seconds.

    Later on, with the rest of the lads doing their strongman training and me well refreshed I also had a go at cleaning our Baby Inch (53-kilos and a thick handle) and then did the 1min5 on the 2" bar beating a visitor. It was easy (I focused on a nail in the ceiling, my hands were dry and I felt good).

    Do I ache? Of course. No training tomorrow. Just food.

    Listening to RX radio now and they mention a motivational thread... where is it??

    The mind is, by far, one of the most important aspects of what we do. Be it staying on a diet or, as it is for me, digging deep to get the job done and not being mind-fucked by some big numbers being thrown about. Take today: the RT work was, once again, heavy ass heavy. 135-kilos plus the set up is 300+ lbs. To get the job done I visualized I was on the platform come June doing just enough to get my bod on the winners podium.
