Tuesday
No leg work yesterday. That lower left back twinge felt like it needed a rest. Today's 2HP session was... sh*t.
Two Hand Pinch
to 27 total reps. But very dribs and drabs. I may rethink the whole 20 reps with 90kg

Could I ask where the 7.7 comes from (as I am not aware of any 7.7kg dumbells in the gym I use)

Hi Harry, the pinch grip referred to entails picking up barbell plates by the edges fingers one side and thumb the other, hence the word 'pinch.'Also the flat side is contacted making it harder as there is no purchase to grip on to. Additional weights can be added to the ones lifted thus making odd weights. There are also special made devises for pinch lifting that are used in competition. A great exercise to strengthen the grip.
Regards,Peter.
