Squats, Saxon and Gripper Test Day


January 2, 2012 - Afternoon
First workout of the year!

1a) Front Squat - Medium - 320 Base
45 x 3
160 x 3, 3
245 x 5, 5
235 x 5, 5 I had to drop some weight plus finished 1 set short. Sick sucks! Having the bar against my throat was really wanting to make me cough as well. Up at 5am this morning hacking up crap to give a general indication of my general health right now  :(

1b) 1" Set Gripper Test - W6
IMT x 3/3
Avr IM3 x 1/8", 1/14", 1/8"
Well I don't think this method of training is for me. It's been a long time since I couldn't close a #3 plus I couldn't even set it in my left. Going back to the ME type work again.

1b) Saxon Pulls - Heavy - 225 Base
155 x 5
170 x 3, 3
200 x 1
205 x 1, 1
210 x 1, 1, 6"
155 x 8 TnG Reps, Snatch Grip x 4+1+3
Using the snatch grip really changes the pinch up! A lot more thumb work and less ability to splay the fingers and tip.

2) Treadmill - 30 minutes of steady state walking 0.64 miles

Didn't get any rowing in but I'll play catch up with it. This being sick sucks donkey balls, especially when I want to squat.
