LCS 13 Weeks Out, Session 2

Hook grip sucks!  Okay, it’s great for what it’s supposed to do but damn, I’m a ninny when it comes to pain.  🙁


There’s a small group of us that’ll be competing Oct 28th at the RPS Revenant Rising in Wilmington, NC.

As always, a big thanks to Inzer Advance Designs and Captain Jacked for their continued support of TeamPRS.


Worked up to 475+120lbs of chain for a single.  The idea here was to test the hook grip.  The position is better and if I can lock that grip in, I feel like I’ll have a better chance of actually pulling what I’m capable of doing instead of my grip cutting pounds off my total.  This is promising since this is the most I’ve held hook grip wise and it was easy.  Most of the reps moved at about the same speed.  Not to mention that these 3″ block pulls are typically a weak point for me.  I’m good off the floor.
