It felt good to be back training. The past 2 weekends really did a number on me but it was well worth it. I will not be training grip specifically this week until friday. Doing the short bends and rolling the frying pan on saturday after 3 GS sets fried my tendons in my wrist and I need to let them heal.
The squats felt very good today with the increased band tension (2" up from 1.5" wide bands). I dropped the bar weight back down to the weight I started with on the 1.5" bands and I will look to add 5-10kg each week for the next 4-6 weeks. I have yet to settle on a strongman comp in september, but my next major event will be the Global Grip Challenge on August 30.
