Arrow 2011: Deadlifts, Grip and Presses

Tough as Nails

Happy New Year, Everyone!

It's a new year and as usual, it's time for a new journal.

There is only one goal for the 2011: To Stay Injury Free.

I am not a bodybuilder.
I am not a powerlifter - though I do follow the sport and am a huge fan.
I am not a strongman.
I am not an olympic weightlifter.

I am a Strength Trainee.

I just want to get strong and my key lifts at the moment are Deadlifts, Grip Training and Overhead Presses.

I don't do "routines".
I Train.

I follow a template which is subject to change every so often.

Saturday - Deadlifts, Barbell Static Holds, Core Training

Sunday - Front Squats, Weighted Dips, Weighted Pull-ups and Core Training

Tuesday - Gripper Training, Overhead Press and Core Training

Wednesday - Weighted Pull-ups, Dumbbell Rows, Plate Pinch Deadlifts (Grip) and Core Training

I'm 22 years old @ 5'7.

My training videos can be found out here: anuj247

Today is a Saturday and my gym is closed unfortunately so my training for this week will be a little messed up. I will be going in on Sunday to do my Deadlifts.

Thank you for reading and I hope y'all have a Happy New Year!

Cool new format. I like it.

As far as gripper training ... how many times a week should I be training using my Coc? I'm following a 5/3/1 right now which hits 4 big lifts once a week each.

I see you're doing one CoC day, a pinch grip day, as well as deadlift day.

Everything gets done once a week and you build tolerance over time
