T-Bar Row

3 plates x 5

It was at this point that I was called away to help clean the gym. The loading dock was cluttered and the neighbors were complaining.

When I returned, there were new toys to play with!! Grip strength toys. A Hub attachment you can attach to the plate-loadable stand, and a box grip kinda attachment. The Hub looks like a basic ring you pinch with the pads of your fingers, and the box looks like a hollow external hard drive you try and claw with your whole hand.

Well, my grip isn’t the worst, but def not the best. I was able to Hub pinch grip about 35 pounds, and the box pinch about 40 pounds. Pumped my forearms a bit too! Fun stuff

Not a lot of volume today, but got some stuff done.
