Wrist Rolling

Thinking about doing some daily or almost daily wrist roller training with different volumes but the same weight. It should Popeye my arms a bit, increase their work capacity, speed recovery and grow up my thumb pads even more for arm wrestling. That's my theory at least. Time to test it.

2-3/8" Wrist Roller - F/E
25# x 5/15 - fairly easy. Really feel the extensor direction in my thumbpads.

Press Day & Braich Pain

April 17, 2013

Wow my forearms and braich's are smashed to begeezus. It's hard to see with the tats but the bugger bruised me up a bit haha! Oh well, hopefully in a few more sessions I'll be all limbered up and it won't be so bad. Made it tricky for bench though as gripping the bar was tough and as soon as my sets were done the pain would sear through my elbows.

Week 5
1) Bench Press
245 x 2 x 5r

2) CG Paused Bench Press
215 x 2 x 5r - Very easy

3) Seated Bradford Press
105 x 3 x 12r

I'll do the Devon rehab/prehab later to get some blood flow going as well. I think tomorrow is going to be a freaking tough AW practice.

Booked another session for next week and will probably keep it up for awhile.

Pull Day

April 11, 2013
Before Supper

Well there goes week 4 of this program and off to another wave up and a peak around mid June. No belt again as usual. I also went double overhand again up to 415 with the deads and all other lifts. I also went back to an alternate grip with the rest of my pulls as my supination is improving. Need to file off some callouses again though. I think I was close to ripping them off again.
I also left the V-grip Pulldowns out as well to give myself a bit more healing for armwrestling practice tomorrow. I think I'll toss some extra back work in on squat days as well.

Lunchtime Pressing

April 10, 2013

I received my Armaid self massager yesterday and after about 10 total minutes split between two sessions yesterday my arms are thrashed! Going to have to heal and keep at 'er. Obviously a lot of adhesions in there.

Still a bit to ouched to clean the dumbbell's for my incline pressing so I left it out. Overall my pressing felt pretty easy today, especially the close grip. Changed up the shoulder work a bit as well. I really like how the Bradford's hit the shoulders and should incorporate them more often.

If I'm game I'll probably do some light-recovery arm wrestling focused stuff tonight just to get the blood flowing. I think Friday's practice is going to be an ass kicker.

1) Bench Press

Squats and a Little Grip

April 8, 2013

Another nice and quick one. Right index is still gimped from I think almost 3 weeks ago. Tried grippers today for the first time in quite a while as well. I think I'll stick to some rep work until I heal up. I also did a bit of forearm work to get some blood in there. Apparently I hit them pretty good with Saturdays Iso's. Became very apparent when I got into position for squatting.

1) Squats - NNN

Pull Day

April 5, 2013

Took a bit over an hour today as I did a quick video showing the wrist-finger iso's. As usual everything was no belt. Dropped the weight on the pulldowns to get stricter. Didn't do the DB rows as my shoulder was feeling a bit iffey. Pulls were done double overhand up to 405 with a nice hold then I strapped up. Supination is getting better, more so in the left I've noticed as I was giving it more attention. Time to smarten up and get both arms evened up.

390 x 6 x 3r - 90 second rests

Pressing and Pain

April 3, 2013

Ouch!! Damn elbows are shot from last nights pulling. Couldn't even clean the dumbbell's for the incline pressing and to much pain keeping them locked out for the laterals.

Squats and Stuff

April 1, 2013

Still enjoying these short workouts. I'm noticing my body temp gets up quicker and my rest period between sets needs to be a tad longer without carbs.

The squats felt great. Went straight to depth with zero tightness which is great. Probably another good indicator I'm on better track with recovery, programming, nutrition, etc.

I've also been doing some wrist work etc. while watching tv and such that's not logged here as well as getting table time twice a week.

No warm ups shown.

1) Squats - NNN
315 x 2 x 8r

2) Paused Squats - NNN
270 x 2 x 5r

Grip between squat sets

1) RT Thumbless Standing Wrist Iso
100# x 4 x 6s

2) Blob training
