I got my Captain of Crush #1 in the mail today :)
I'm still resting my left arm, but my right arm could only get it about 1/4 inch from closed :(

Nice one! That #1 is tough (for me at least :lol: ). You didn't bother with the trainer?

I wasn't sure which to get, #1 seemed like a good place to start.
Now I realize that the trainer was probably a better choice.
Maybe I'll order a trainer and put the #1 aside for a while.
That last little bit is really tough, even with the help of the other hand.
Someday I'll be able to pop open cans of spinach like Popeye :lol:

Ha! When I got mine, everyone I talked to said not to bother with the trainer. Glad I didn't listen. Its definatly the last centimeter that gets me every time.

A walk in Phipps Park this morning.
My left forearms is STILL tender, no weights today.
I really want to squeeze my CoC#1 but I need to get over this.

I did a light bench workout today. Also a little shoulder work.
Still favoring the left forearm.
I'm going to put the benchpress training routine on hold for a while.
I didn't accomplish 50 pound in 7 weeks. I did add 15 pound in 4 weeks though.
I'll do more reps with less weigt for a while.
Maybe in a month I'll go at it again.

Monday - July 17
Another light weight day for back, biceps, but no forearms.
I could really feel it in the left forearm durning biceps.

Tuesday - July 18
Should have been an abs and legs day, but I tried the bench again.
Added a little more weight this time
Warmed up with 20# and 40# Dumbbells
135 x 10
155 x 10
165 x 10
no triceps or shoulders this morning, I have to go to work, maybe tonight.
Still pain in the left forearm, it will be a light workout.
I am now able to make a tight fist with barely noticable pain.

Wednesday - July 19
Took this day off

Thursday - July 20
Another light day only back and biceps, no forearms

I picked up a pair of 20kg/45lb plates.
I'm going to add deadlifts.
I've never done any except for lifting my bar for shrugs
Need to start light for my first try, I don't want to get really sore.

Saturday - July 22
I woke up with sore Pecs today.
That's a good thing since I think I finally figured out the correct way to bench.
Well at least to isolate the pecs as much as possible.

I also did a few deadlifts for the first time.
Started with a 45 on each end, that seemed easy.
So I added another 45 to each end, that was a lot harder
I figured 100kg/225lb might be too much to use for a first timer.
The last thing I need to do is hurt myself.

I'll start my workouts at 45 on each end and see where I go from there.
I need to make sure I get the proper form, I would really hate to screw up my back

I only did a few small workouts this last week
Still trying to get my left forearm better.

Saturday - July 29
Went for a climb up the hill at Phipps Park.
It's been really hot here the last couple weeks.
I got done with the climb at 9:00 at it was already 82 degrees.
Today is supposed to be our last day over 100.

I also did my chest, shoulder, tricep workout.
I'm happy with my new bench workout, today I did 5x10 sets at 100 lbs.
These were easy so I'm sure I won't be sore from them.
So it must be time to increase the weight, just need to keep proper form.
Hopefully I can get back to where I was in a short time.

Thursday - August 3
Today was Back, Bicep and Forearms
I didn't do forearms because I could still feel the pain during biceps
I made a new tracking graph for bench and biceps, next will be for my newly started deadlifts.

I orderd a Devil's Advocate gripper the other day. Should be here early next week.
Looking forward to trying this!

My Ivanko Super Gripper finally arrived today.
I did 7 sets of 10 in each hand, alternating between hands.
When done my hands were aching, almost like a cramp.

This gripper is nice with the adjustable springs.
I don't know if the extra money for the knurled grips are worth it.
Oh well, that's the version that I bought and I like them.

Time to quit typing and start squeezing.

I did my chest, shoulder, tricep workout.
Today I decided to try my 1 RM bench press again.
I was able to slowly get 210 back up but 215 didn't make it back up to the rack.
210 pounds isn't an improvement, but I'm happy with that since my forearm has been affecting my workouts.

My neighbor was filling up a trailer to take to the landfill Saturday.
One of these was in line waiting to get on the trailer.

I carried it away for free. I'll need to do something for him someday.
