Long-Ass Absence Catch up post
OK, So in the midst of my 17 Credit hours, 2 jobs, and such, I havent been on here much. Sorry guys. Here’s what I’ve been up to.
Gaining Weight Again!!!!!! -> Im at 187.6 now up from 185. Yuussssss.
Strength moving on up. Continuing to see gains in my lifts.
Metcon/Bodyweight workouts getting harder -> Definitely need to focus some larger effort into my bodyweight workouts. Can’t be getting slow if I’m trying to get to the CrossFit Games!
Back Squat 135x10-155x10-175x10-185x10-225(5-2-1-2)
Got damn close to my 1RM, but for 5 consecutive reps! Ill take it.
10 yoga ball situps (no GHD :()
30 1.5 pood Kettlebell swings
Push Press 5x5 -> 135-155 (2-2)-135-135-135
This felt pretty weak to me, considering I’ve had a 1RM Press of 155 for a little while now. :/
Row 2k 7:41 <- PR time! Prolly could do better :)
Power Cleans 5x3 175-185-205-215-225(PR) Feeling much awesome about this.
Power Cleans 115lbs
15:35 <- ouch. +5min from last time I did this. I think the issue was I didn’t rest enough between my PR Power Cleans. Oops.
4/2/12 Thrusters 7x3 135-155-165-175-185 (1-drop fail) Def tried to catch this PR lift before it went behind me and I dropped it, tweaked my shoulder a bit, but otherwise ok. Bodyweight Thruster PR for the win!
2008 Games WOD: 5RFT
275lb Deadlift 5 reps
5:24 <- PR at prescribed weight. Last time was 5:09 at 225lbs, so Ill take only a 20 second slow down.
4/3/12 Bench Press 7x3 185-195(3rd rep sucked)-190-190-190-190-190(2-f)
I was hoping to get closer to my 1RM with this, but Ill take holding out at 190.
45lb Overhead Lunges
13:47 Straight from the main page, Ill take it, but it’s a little slow for my taste. Would have preferred something between 10-12 minutes. Will work harder.
That about does it folks, Ill be getting regular again after my physics test tomorrow!
