Rest day, grip training

On my rest days I normally do some grip training and some ab wheel roll-outs and maybe some glute work if I feel like going to the gym. Today was almost a total rest day with just some grip work.

  • Hand Gripper:
    • 0.1 kg x 5 reps (+6 pts)
    • Crumbling up newspapers

The “crumbling up newspapers” note is an exercise I recently learned from this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQkAS8K67BU& video. Unlike more traditional grip exercises like Farmer’s Walk and Hand Grippers this exercise works all the fingers by moving them.

Update: Turned out today didn’t end up being a total rest day afterall. Got in some Ab wheels and more gripping exercises. Below is today’s full workout.

  • Hand Gripper:
    • 0.1 kg x 5 reps (+6 pts)
    • 20 kg x 5 reps (+8 pts)
    • 20 kg x 5 reps (+8 pts)
    • 20 kg x 5 reps (+8 pts)
    • Set 1: Crumbling up newspapers Set 2+3+4: CoC 1.0 resistance divied by 3 because I can’t close it yet.
  • Ab Wheel (kneeling):
    • 15 reps (+27 pts)
    • 15 reps (+27 pts)
    • 15 reps (+27 pts)
