    Have not been super reliable with logging my workouts on here.

    Tuesday 28th March 2017

    ** Dumbell Push press **
    - 45.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 60.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 75.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps

    No BP issues. Up to 4x4 next time.

    ** Dan John Grip Test (Pullup Every 30 Seconds) **
    - 2 reps
    - 2 reps
    - 2 reps
    - 2 reps
    Really these were done true to form with a 30 second hang leading off, whereas last time I started with a pullup. So by default i pobably hung on the bar a little longer this time

    ** Incline Barbell Bench Press **
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps

    Good. Maybe I'll do 120 or 125 next time.

    ** Dumbell Farmers Walk **
    - 115.0 lbs x 90 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 100 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 100 reps

    10 feet more is ten feet more.

    ** Ivanko Supergripper (Occlusion Training) **
    - 77.0 lbs x 30 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 22 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 16 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps
    These went well. Alternated hands every 30 seconds.

    Thursday 30th March 2017

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Shoulder) **
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 155.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 175.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 190.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 190.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 190.0 lbs x 1 rep

    Failed my second rep on both of the last two sets. Decided to go back to pulling to neck height for a bit.

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Neck) **
    - 170.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 170.0 lbs x 3 reps

    Will go for a 5 rep max next time

    ** Good Morning **
    - 190.0 lbs x 18 reps
    - 190.0 lbs x 18 reps
    - 190.0 lbs x 18 reps

    Good. 195 for 18 next time.

    ** Plate Pinches **
    - 50.0 lbs x 8 reps
    - 70.0 lbs x 0 reps
    - 70.0 lbs x 0 reps

    Could get it lefty but could not get it right handed. So I think I'm going to try some taking the 25's for a walk for a couple weeks.

    ** Plate Pinch Farmers Walks **
    - 100.0 lbs x 60 feet
    - 100.0 lbs x 60
    - 100.0 lbs x 40

    This was better than monday. Gonna keep these up.

    ** Satirmaster Program 1 **
    - 7.0 lbs x 10 minutes

    "130 calories" 39 floors, .85 miles. I think 1.3 miles in 10 minutes would put me around the calorie mark I'm looking for... I don't know if that's possible tbh.

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Neck) **
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 150.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 160.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 170.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 170.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 170.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 170.0 lbs x 2 reps

    New 5 rep max. Pulling heavier to a lower height paid off. Wasn't that easiest 5rm ever, but I got it.

    ** Bulgarian split Squat (Barbell In Back Squat Position) **
    - 90.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 5 reps

    Some shit knee pain in my left knee. So I cut these short.

    ** Good Morning **
    - 160.0 lbs x 22 reps
    - 160.0 lbs x 22 reps

    Good, 3 sets next time.

    ** Plate Pinch Kroc Row **
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps

    Was easier than finding a place in the gym to do farmers walks. I'll probably do this again next time, more reps.

    ** Satirmaster Program 1 **
    - level 8.0 x 10 minutes

    141 calories, 44 floors, .93 miles. Kinda nauseous at the end. I'll try level 9 next time. At this rate it'll be level 14 before I hi my 20 cal / min goal, which is daunting.

    ** Ivanko Supergripper (Occlusion Training) **
    - 77.0 lbs x 33 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 22 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 15 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 12 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps

    - 75.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 7 reps *2 rep pr*
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 90.0 lbs x 3 reps

    Moving up to 12x1 @ 95 next time.

    ** Pull up Lsit **
    - 12.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 8 reps
    - 7 reps

    Picking up where I left off before doing the Dan John Grip Test challenge for r/griptraining

    ** Incline Barbell Bench Press **
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 10 reps

    This sucked. I'll probably switch to dumbells for a whil.

    ** Dan John Grip Test (Pullup Every 30 Seconds) **
    - 2 reps
    - 2 reps
    - 2 reps

    A lot tougher at the end of the workout than it was doing it immediately after presses. And my hands are getting pretty beat up.

    ** Ivanko Supergripper (Occlusion Training) **
    - 77.0 lbs x 35 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 22 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 15 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 11 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps

    Good finisher a little bit of progress on these.

    I'm dialing back high pulls to once a week and putting a squat day on Thursdays. I'm going to focus on high pulls and deadlifts (maybe. It depends on blood pressure) on mondays.

    ** Box Squat Jump **
    - 95.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 105.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 110.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 115.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 125.0 lbs x 1 rep

    A matt vincent reccomendation but I'm holding the bar in back squat position and and jumping for height. I use my pvc bars to set a height I could hit in the rack with 30% of my calculated max squat then raised the weight. I should have done some warmup sets but it went pretty well and I ended up around 40%, which is still in peak power development range.

    12x1 @ 125 next time.

    ** Barbell Squat **
    - 195.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 235.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 235.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 235.0 lbs x 10 reps

    Probably go to 5 x 10 next time.

    ** Two Handed Plate Pinch **
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 120.0 lbs x 1 rep

    Just getting in some volume. Going to go for a 1rm on monday. I've been doing these in a landmine setup. This weekend I'll get a 1.5" id steel pipe and do a real pinch.

    ** Eliptical **
    Incline set at 9, resistance set to 4, for 10 minutes @ 165 strides per minute.

    "206.7 calories." More resistance next time. This was a tough ten minutes, but doable... 20 minutes of cardio a week! Woooo!

    ** Ivanko Supergripper (Occlusion Training) **
    - 77.0 lbs x 35 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 20 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 12 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps

    A little drop in volume but I did a lot more volume on pinch work so it's all good.

    FitNotes Workout - Friday 14th April 2017

    ** Dumbell Push press **
    - 50.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 80.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 0 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps

    These went well, my second set had a BP reading of 168 systolic, which I think was probably a bad reading, but I'll repeat 6 x 2 again.

    ** Pull up Lsit **
    - 12.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 10 reps
    - 7 reps

    3 x 8 next time.

    ** Incline Dumbbell Bench Press **
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 50.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 50.0 lbs x 15 reps

    Good, last set was a little sticky, but I got it. 55 next time.

    ** Dan John Grip Test (Pullup Every 30 Seconds) **
    - 25.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 25.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 25.0 lbs x 1 rep

    Quite a bit tougher with an extra 25 lbs. I'm going to try this again, but the toughest part was the second pullup after going completely slack for 30 seconds.

    FitNotes Workout - Monday 24th April 2017

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Top Of Head) **
    - 135.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 135.0 lbs x 2 reps

    I could hit these bar abut it didn't feel like I was throwing the bar so much as pushing it via front raise at the top of the lift. So I lowered the bars

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Forehead) **
    - 135.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 140.0 lbs x 2 reps

    Going to do 6x3 @ 140 next time.

    ** Deadlift **
    - 225.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 270.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 315.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 315.0 lbs x 5 reps

    Have not deadlifted in forever due to blood pressure concerns but honestly with higher reps by BP was only 133/88 at the end of these. So a pulling I shall go. 32 5x10 next time.

    ** Plate Pinches **
    - 55.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 8 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 8 reps

    Not bad, probably worn down from deads and high pulls. Not counting the bar and pony clamps. 3 x 10

    ** Ivanko Supergripper (Occlusion Training) **
    - 77.0 lbs x 35 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 24 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 14 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 12 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 9 reps
    - 77.0 lbs x 8 reps

    Progress by inches today.

    ** Dumbell Push press **
    - 50.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 80.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 95.0 lbs x 0 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 95.0 lbs x 2 reps

    4th workset stuck for no good reason even took a second attempt at the second rep. So it was really 1 and two halves. 6x2 next time for sure.

    ** Pull up Lsit **
    - 12.0 lbs x 8 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 12.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 10 reps
    - 7 reps

    3 x 8 next time

    ** Incline Dumbbell Bench Press **
    - 55.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 10 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 8 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 7 reps

    Slowing down to a grind in the end. I'll get 5x10 next time.

    ** Dan John Grip Test (Pullup Every 30 Seconds) **
    - 7 x 1 @ 25.0 lbs

    One minute rests. I was kinda beat up from everything else but I wanted some extra grip work and couldnt get a double today. So I did a bunch of singles to get a little volume pr at this weight. Felt a stretch in my left shoulder and pec. Probably from incline right before this.

    Been a while since I posted, I've been training just not logging it here. Got some shit news from the cardiologist this month, my condition is progressing. That's just how it goes. The good news is I'm not symptomatic of heart valve failure (as of yet) and post valve replacement life is likely to be better than it is now, save taking blood thinners. So I'm still at least a year off from surgery, but that's how it is. Still a lot of boxes to check before that happens.

    Monday 15th May 2017

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Forehead) **
    - 135.0 lbs x 1 rep
    - 140.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 140.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 140.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 140.0 lbs x 3 reps

    6 reps was a 1 rep pr. I might go for 145 for 5 or 150 for 4 next week. Just depends on what the BP cuff says. Maybe I'll do something higher rep like 120 for 11.

    ** Deadlift **
    - 225.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 225.0 lbs x 0 reps
    - 295.0 lbs x 12 reps
    - 295.0 lbs x 8 reps

    Reincorporating deadlifts has been good to me I think. Trying to keep these higher rep and using them for volume. Blood pressure was a little high after my first warm up set, but ok after 295.
    ** Plate Pinches **
    - 55.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 70.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 70.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 60.0 lbs x 12 reps

    Good. 3 reps is a rep pr at 70 lbs and 12 reps is a 1 rep pr at 60 lbs

    ** Clubbell - Dual 2 front circles + Dual 2 Back circles (in sync) **
    - 4.37 lbs x 12 reps
    - 4.37 lbs x 12 reps
    - 4.37 lbs x 12 reps
    - 4.37 lbs x 12 reps
    - 4.37 lbs x 12 reps

    Working up to 5 sets of 20 then I'll start working up to a set of 50.

    ** Dumbell Push press **
    - 40.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 55.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 3 reps
    - 75.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 75.0 lbs x 13 reps
    - 75.0 lbs x 8 reps
    - 75.0 lbs x 7 reps


    13 reps is a 13 rep max. Probably go for either 70 x 15 or 85 x 10 next time. I'm trying to hit some higher rep PR's regularly and inch my way stronger.

    ** Pull up Lsit **
    - 15.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 15.0 lbs x 6 reps

    - 10.0 #64 rubber bands x 50 reps
    - finger work with 3, 3, 2, 2 bands on index , middle, ring, pinky 24 reps per finger.

    The thumb blaster us something new I made for a some dynamic pinch work. Putting my thumb on the plate and fingers in the bands (for the second set) I do an old bass workout I used to do that goes through all the four finger combinations. 1234, 1243, 1324, 1342, etc.

    ** High Pull (Snatched Grip, Bars At Forehead) **
    - 135.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 2 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps
    - 135.0 lbs x 4 reps

    Building up to some higher reps on these. Looking for a 14 or 15 rep max at 135 I think. Since I can't go lower in weight without changing the pull height, I'm going to run density training at 135 and shoot for 14 or 15 reps.

    ** Deadlift **
    - 225.0 lbs x 7 reps
    - 270.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 310.0 lbs x 11 reps
    - 310.0 lbs x 6 reps
    - 310.0 lbs x 5 reps

    Probably going to go higher rep next time and work my way lower. This was a pr of sorts, but nothing phenomenal.

    ** Plate Pinches **
    - 65.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 5 reps
    - 65.0 lbs x 5 reps

    I think if I can take my 10 rep max (65) and turn it into my 15 rep max, It'll make my 3 rep max my new 10 rep max.... then I can repeat the process. So I hope anyways.
