Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
Thanks Arturo. I'm 5'4" and actually more like 175ish these days (what can I say, it's the holidays. I'll drop back down after Christmas, when I start getting ready for Sectionals). I do my own programming, pulling workouts and ideas from here and there. I've followed the main page at times, but find that it doesn't address my weaknesses as much as I would like. I also find that I can handle more volume on a 3 on-1 off-2 on-1 off schedule, instead of the 3 on-1 off schedule. Plus, it's easier to work around your life when you train on the same days every week. Right now, I'm not doing any kind of structured program. I'm just kind of programming on the fly, depending upon how I feel, what kind of time I have, and what I'm interested in doing that day. I try to lift heavy at least 3 times a week, if not 4-5, and do a metcon almost every session. I also try to do endurance work (either intervals or time trials) at least twice a week.

One of my all time worst Helen times. Runs were definitely labored. I should also be doing some intervals on the rower today, but I'm about a week overdue for a rest cycle and trying to stretch it until next week. I figure I might as well just take off Thanksgiving and the day after; cramming a workout into either of those days would be a *****.

I love it.
Consider making it a triplet by adding dead lifts @ 275# (or even 315# since you have such a high DL PR).

We'll see. I'm taking off the latter half of this week, and when I pick back up things are going to get get cranked up even more. I'm really trying to push the upper limits of my ability to recover. I'm going to be trying some MONSTER WOD's during December; maybe that one will make an appearance.

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
Took yesterday off. I couldn't workout at the box, because there was a cert going on. I had originally intended to go run sprints yesterday; unfortunately, I appear to have suffered a mild achilles strain, so sprints were a no-go. I couldn't figure out what else to do and ended up just taking the day off, as I'm already overdue for rest. I worked out today and will do so again tomorrow, then I'm taking the rest of the week off.

400m run

2 x each:

20 forearm to instep lunges
10 hip/back ext.
15 abmat situps
10 kipping pull-ups
10 push-ups

Squat Clean + Push Jerk + Split Jerk

1x95
1x115
1x135
1x155
1x175
1x195
1x215

5 rounds
10 strict pull-ups
10 strict ring dips
10 true push-ups (feet and hands on Dynamax balls, chest goes below parallel)
*all sets must be unbroken

15:28

Didn't try to go heavy on clean and jerk complex. Metcon was harder than advertised.

5'4", ok that explains how you look thick without being so heavy.

BTW, with your other abilities I could've sworn you had a faster Helen time :p:yikes:

You'll note that I mention it not being one of my best times. My PR is about a minute faster.
