    Thursday
    Coached Seb and Jacek. During the workout I demonstrated some movements. Baring in mind I hadn't trained, had not taken a coffee before etc... I did a slow rep or two with 150-kilos using the v-handle on LPD, pulled 70kilos cold on the 2HP more than once and so on.

    Friday
    T/Grippers
    Worked to an extra rep or two with the HG as planned. Then, as per how I felt on them last time, took the r/h to a 4 attempt or two..
    B/H: usual
    L/H: Seemed to have no probs at all warming up. If anything it felt better than the right hand but struggled to get my groove on the 3. However, once I did was ok. So: CoC 3 x TnG, TnG, 1 (solid), 1. HG350(new) x N, HG350(old) x VN, VN, N. Dropped down to the 3 again so I did the same volume as my right; CoC 3 x 1 and 1 over crush rep
    R/H: HG350(new) x 4 x 1 reps, HG350(old) x 3 x 1 reps (2 were easy). CoC 3.5 x 3 x 1 solid reps. CoC 4 x N (about 1/4-inch).

    2HP
    worked to 108-kilos x TnG, TnG, 1, 1, 1 (best rep)

    RT (OH)
    In spite of a late start and some work I ended up done by the usual time - no distractions maybe?? Started out ok but got better as each attempt was made. No belt throughout. On a couple I had to reset my hand and go again as per the rules.

    L/H: +116.25-kilos x 5 x 1 reps

    Will be following, just started training my grip as it's been failing on my Deadlifts and I feel it's becoming a weak link. Bought myself a 150 heavy gripper. Can close it for around 5 reps before it starts slipping. No idea what I'm doing with it really any pointers?
