Well a few things. Tonight I decided to keep working up with some reps in the 90-95% range for my squat and they were all pretty easy. The thing that isn't easy is how much hair and crap gets ripped out from the wraps and the pinching. I'm going to look at some other peoples workouts and just see how many sets they're doing while wrapped because I think between 3-5 reps at this range is good enough to keep strength gains going. That final cool down set isn't bad strength wise but I'm just getting tuckered. I know I'm a pussy.

I ended up using my Climber style 2HP tonight as my thumb webbing peeled back a bit yesterday from the wide pinching. By the end of pinching tonight I couldn't get enough chalk in there to keep from bleeding and ripping so I stopped.

Gave some Dimels a go but my hands were just to fried and tore up from the pinch so I couldn't get the 15-20 reps I wanted and the 2-3 sets. Oh well, I'm still gaining without them now anyways.
