    Sunday
    @ gymnation
    M/Press
    handles x 12 reps, 1/2 stack x 8 reps, stack x 8 reps, +40-kilos x 8 reps, +80-kilos x 6 hard reps

    DB H Curls
    10-kilos x 12 reps @, 20-kilos x 10 reps @, 40-kilos x 6 reps @ (loose/cheating)

    TPD
    started usual machine: stack x 12 reps, switched to Nytram: +25-kilos x 10 reps, +50-kilos x 8 reps (hard)
    Session was harder than I thought probably because we were against the clock.

    I start out thumbless, then thumb over and for the heavy sets, hook grip.

    Quick Question mobster if you dont mind?

    I was doing some grip stuff last week, plate pinchs and some of thoses things where you roll a rope up on a bar (my minds gone blank)

    Anyway, ever since ive been getting some nasty shooting pains running up the outside of my wrist. The grip work is the only thing i can put it down too, doesnt feel like doms either

    Any tips for future grip sessions?>

    It's possible you've irritated the nerve that many call the 'funny bone'. When doing pinches keep the hands in a neutral position as opposed to allowing them to rotate. Ditto any other non-grip exercises.

    70-kilos x 8 reps, 110-kilos x 8 reps, 150-kilos x 7 loose reps

    1 Arm D/B Rows
    47.5-kilos x 2 x 12 reps per hand

    Legs + coached Seb. He may be competing in the amateur British Grip Championships. I'd love to coach him to win.
    Leg Press
    worked to 694-kilos x Fail. Just sat there and did nowt. Dropped down to 674-kilos and got 2 or 3. So took a couple of mins rest and had another go. This time 694-kilos x 9 reps

    Leg Ext
    70-kilos x 8 reps, 105-kilos x 8 reps, 145-kilos x 8 reps, 90-kilos negs x 8 reps each (2 legs up, 1 down)

    Leg Curl
    25-kilos x 8 reps, 35-kilos x 8 reps, 45-kilos x 6+1+1 reps

    Showed Seb how to work on the Vulcan. But will use the lifts in the comp mentioned above from this point.

    Friday
    Chilled

    Saturday
    Nev went HEAVY on leg press (450kg+).

    2HP
    to +86-kilos (108) x 4 x 1 tough reps

    Rim lifting*
    Then, while training Seb (Yoke + Farmers) Loz and I joined in on rim lifting. Seb worked to around 60-kilos and Loz and I did either 70 or 75-kilos. My left hand dropped out at 60 or 65 but the right carried on.

    * lifting a plate by the edge of the outer flange. Very hard on the finger pad skin.

    Wednesday
    Nev worked to a very nice PB of 200-kilos mixed grip thick bar deadlift. He was 'on' as they say. Sun and stars in alignment so we pushed it.

    I did back AND one hand deadlifts.

    1HDL
    to 165-kilos x 3 x 2 reps each hand. Thumbless to 100kg, thumb over with 140 and then hook grip.

    LPD
    to 150-kilos x 8 reps - uglyish.

    Low Row
    to 140-kilos x 6 ugly reps

    Nipped back for a shake and then coached Naz.
