    Thanks HJP and Tom!!!!!

    Never really been the type of guy to handshake war lol.......had plenty crush my fingers though ha ha.....cheap shots.


    Grip work.

    Vulcan V2-
    Left
    Level 7 x 1, 9 x 1, 11 x 1, 12 x 1, 14 x 1 (1mm from fuckin 2) big PR, 12 x 7 big PR.
    Right
    Level 7 x 1, 9 x 1, 11 x 1, 12 x 1, 14 x 2 (1mm from 3) big PR.

    Captains of crush-
    Right
    #2.5 x 3 (1mm off 4) PR.
    Left
    #1.5 x 22 + 10 sec overcrush PR.


    Comparasion on training with the Vulcan vs the Captains of crush grippers:

    Vulcan is better for-
    Rep work due to it not twisting in your hand
    Building the start and middle portion of squeeze
    Learning to set the gripper
    High volume work due to no knurling (need chalk)
    Making smaller jumps in tension
    Thumb training using attachments

    C.O.C better for-
    Hardening the skin, medium knurling
    Building of the close portion of the squeeze
    Over crush work

    Overall as a tool the Vulcan is superior, the Captains are still awesome.


    4km walk with my lady.

    Grippers again, 2 a days have paid off so why not.

    Vulcan-
    Level 8- 5 x 5 each hand

    Rest day tomorrow

    Nice review of the vulcan versus the captains. Wish those vulcans were more widely available over here.

    Smart idea with getting some rest in. Strong focus on grip strength is paying off man. Grip is becoming incredible

    Thanks Coke and HJP!!!!! It is indeed going well, seems like the more you put in the more you get........if I tried that with pulls id be in bed for 2 weeks lol.


    Grip.

    T X 2
    1 X 2 x 2
    1.5 x 2

    Vulcan V2-
    Right
    Level 6,7,9,10,12,13,14, 16 negative from close to open 8 sec.
    Level 11 x 4 x 7 sets PR.........last set 5 reps....29 reps total

    Left just hit a ton high reps inverted on the captains trainer, should be healed up soon.

    Side raises-
    5 sets of 12

    EDIT: if you need to toughen up the fingers try inverted full range reps on the grippers, it will thicken the skin quick (mainly index). Normal way full range will do the same to pinky.

    Cheers bro!!!!!

    Its a bit hit and miss but yeah soon ill be able to get a couple, hard work should get me there.

    I have grown a lot of respect for grip athletes, if you are soft you will not have a good grip period.

    Sleeping today, going at it tomorrow.

    Thanks guys!!!

    Inverted means holding the gripper upside down. Much harder. Very good for first 2 fingers and pretty fun.

    Do you still do any real lifting? Lol. I have no idea what's good on those gripper things but they are just not interesting to me. Rack pulls and shrugs looked good from last week.
