Grip Strength (again) — i.e. “The Man Who Couldn’t Quit”

The Ironmind package arrives…

The package arrived and I opened it with equal parts excitement and fear.  As I tore open the packaging and touched the aluminum handles, out wafted the smell of light machine oil and the distant aroma of burning tendons…

I can’t stop.  I’ve tried again and again and again.  And now I’m going to try one more time to shut that godforsaken #2 Ironmind Gripper (that’s 195 lbs of pull).

Last time I failed, not because I didn’t work hard enough, but because I trained so hard that I gave myself tendonitis.  Lesson learned.  This time I will go slower, train smarter, and be more patient.
