          Somewhat annoyingly I realized I only did 450-kilos and not 550-kilos on the l/press as I thought.

            And managed the same trick again - see below WTF??

            Wednesday pm
            I haven't been to GN in the evening for ages so there was far too much talking and not enough attention paid so that might be why I fucked up - see below.

            T/L/R/Thunder
            B/H: 45-kilos x 8 reps @

            L/H: 85-kilos (90.4 OR 95.4??) x 5 x 1 no problems plus a few more attempts

            R/H: 85-kilos x 1 rep (as above), 100-kilos (as above) x 2 x 1 reps, dropped to 95-kilos (as above) x 2 x 1 rep, then back to 100-kilos (105.4 OR 110.4) x 2 x 1 and 2 x 1 attempts.

            I am not exactly sure what I was lifting because as I put the weights away I am sure a disc I thought was a 10-kilo disc was in fact a small diameter 15-kilo disc. So, for example, with my left hand I may have been using 5-kilos more than I thought and the same again with my right. Because I trained at Gymantion for a change and used the heavy pin I'd adjusted the numbers anyway... all very confusing to say the least. So I either had a blinder of a session for more singles than I'd thought or was off if the weights were right... :blink All the numbers above are, therefore, what I thought I was doing and may have been heavier.

                True

                Friday am
                Session all over the place. V annoying.
                V/Gripper
                B/H: L1 x 6 reps, L7 x 3 reps
                L/H: L10 x 1 rep, L12 x 1, VVN, 1, 1, 0, 1, VN
                R/H: L16 (accident) x 0 reps, L12 x 1 rep, L16 x x 1, VVN, 1, 0 reps

                Tested both hands at end of VG work and then after 2HP and both ok on standard grippers (left did a BBGM and right was a gnats ball off on a BBSE)

                2HP @ 44mm
                equx 6 reps, plus 30-kilos x 3 reps, plus 60-kilos x 1 rep, plus 70-kilos x 1 rep, plus 72.5-kilos x 1 rep, plus 75-kilos x 1 rep, plus 79.5 (misload again) x 0 reps, 79-kilos x 1/2 off floor then a missed rep, dropped to 78.5 (probably should have done this for 5-8 x 1 reps anyway) x 1, 1, skin, missed, missed. Stopped as skin had torn a little at base of right thumb on 2nd half decent rep

                Bwt 275lbs

                Pissed off with what feels like a poor session and wondering if the 'gift' I'm using was real.

                          Seated press is using an olympic bar in a power rack. I've a 2 year old photo of me doing something like 160-170lbs.

                            Tuesday
                            V annoyed with one hand deadlift. I need to look back at previous efforts on this to see where I am going wrong cos it was all over the place. Yet CG Bench was ok with the two triples with 140-kilo a very nice surprise.

                            One hand deadlifts
                            B/H: 20-kilos e/s x 3 reps @, 40-kilos e/s x 3 reps @
                            L/H: 50-kilos e/s (120) x 1 rep, 58.75-kilos e/s x 0, 55-kilos e/s x 5 x 1 reps - not too bad but not what I wanted
                            R/H: 60-kilo e/s x 1 rep, 66.25-kilos x 0 reps, 65-kilos e/s x 0, 0 - shit basically.

                            CG Bench - max
                            20-kilos e/s x 8 reps (t/l), 40-kilos e/s x 6 reps (t/l), 60-kilos e/s x 1 rep, 68.75-kilos (157.5-kilos) e/s x 4 x 1 reps, 60-kilos e/s x 3 x 2 sets

                            * t/l = thumbless

                              Tuesday pm
                              as per earlier post I was not very happy with the result of the work on one hand deadlifts. So having used the search topic function on my gripboard log I went back ages to see what I was doing before back when I was half decent at it. That'd be late 2006 and early 2007 when I competed against Theo in a supermatch. I pulled 150-kilos right and a weak 120-kilos left. I'd done more with both in training but without the pauses required for an event. I looked at my working numbers so...

                              One hand deadlift (again) - thumb over
                              B/H: bar x 6 reps @, 60-kilos x 5 reps @, 100-kilos x 3 reps @
                              L/H: 130-kilos x 6 x 1 reps (having done 5 x 1 earlier)
                              R/H: 140-kilos x 6 x 1 reps
                              NB: I was alternating the left and right hand efforts.
