I have a trophy room. :D

My Gripper wraps came today.  I'll be able to put them to the test on Friday for my 8x1 sets.  I'm going to alternate between my old ones and the grippers to see which ones I prefer more.  I'm hoping I like the grippers more since I just bought them though  :P

They are much thicker than my 2.0M Iron Wrap Zs.  I wrapped one knee and they feel more comfortable than the old ones.  They don't seem to cut into the backs of my knees as much.  The real test will be Friday though.

I ordered my cert from RPS for my state record to hang in my gym too.  I figure I may as well get one since I won't be able to defend it getting old and stuff.  Plus, the money paid goes to a good cause.  The world record for squat in my new division (Amateur RAW Modern, Masters 45-50) for August is standing at 350#.  I'm taking that one down and re-setting the bar.

I also got my clock in today so I can track my rest periods better.  It's a cheap peice of junk but it'll do.  I had to pop the bezel off and color the ends of the minute and hour hands and color the entire second hand.  Black hands on a black background was a dumb idea CafePress!
