Great looking sessions amongst all the house troubles!

I think most of the hard stuff is done. The rest should just be tedious.

ME Lower

GHR w/ orange mini assist - 5 x 5,

* getting easier and almost to where I can do these with no assistance for one to two reps. Yesterday I did 5 sets of single negatives stopping a few times as I went down each single. I'm doing kind of like 5/3/1 but 10/1/5 daily and obviously adding assistance where needed.

Sumo Deadlift

135 x 5

135 x 5

185 x 5

225 x 3

275 x 1

315 x 1

345 x 1

365 x 1

385 x 1

345 x 1

345 x 1

345 x 1

* was was planing on working to top set, drop 10% then doing 3x3 but that 385 wiped me out.

Superset - 4 rds

Banded SSB GM w/ red band - 110 x 8

Ab wheel - x10

* GMs were much harder than I remembered from last time. That was because last time I used an orange mini band which is like 4 times less tension. Tension on the red bands is over 100lbs at the top for the pair.

Pinch grip training

90 x 0

50 x 0

20 x 1

30 x 1

40 x 0

40 x 1

30 x AMRAP back and forth until failure

I read an old article on EliteFTS on grip training so I'm going to give it a try. I need to make a more convenient pinch block. I used a bar sleeve but it was a pain to change the weight. In the article, it said to start with 2 45s sandwiched together. I wasn't close and 2-25 weren't any closer. The jist of the program has me doing intense grip work on one upper day a week, then alternating pinch and sledge work on a lower later in the week.
