Cheers Peter. The last time I put 6 a side on the bar I'd never done it so I was feeling my way. I did the 'work' I needed to yesterday and felt like there was more there.

Tuesday
Two Hand Pinch
If, as per yesterday, we smash legs and hit PB's then guess what... pinch is damn hard lol. Anyway...
to 110.7-kilos 1 rep, then x 2 x fail then 4 x 1 for 5 singles total

Hi Steve, i have found the same thing, heavy back and leg day will certainly affect my grip. Not sure why that is but interesting to see it also affects others.
Regards,Peter.
