Started the Tim Struse gripper program today. Focusing on the snap is not something I've been doing for a long time but it's what made me progress with KTA I'm sure to get the #3 to start with. Focusing on very fast, intense reps set an inch or better out.

I don't know what the hell happened with those 2 misses with the pulls. My mind wasn't there or something. I really need to get away from any reps with these for a bit and keep working fairly heavy singles to get my CNS all fired up again. Starting with my 3rd rep at 495 I began getting all of my air in at the top and working on setting up fast with that belly full. I don't typically and I really noticed the difference in power when I had it in me from the top vs getting loaded up after I gripped.

Did the shoulder presses just to get some light work in and stretch my shoulders a bit. They're not to flexible after not squatting with an Oly bar for quite a while now.

No style of bending tested well today so I left that aspect be. I did some L blob pinches and holds as well but wasn't recording reps, time, etc.
