Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
I got stomach poisoning from something I ate during the Super Bowl; my girlfriend and the two other couples we watched the game with all got it too. As a result, I spent most of last week in bed and unable to eat solid food. I went from 177 pounds on Monday morning to 162 pounds on Thursday morning. I finally got back into the gym yesterday, and have gained back about half of the weight I lost. I have exactly 18 training days to prepare for Sectionals on March 13th. To boost my strength back up, I'm going to do a retooled and slightly accelerated version of the 5x5 program that I did to prepare for the Mid-Atlantic Hopper Challenge in October. I'm starting with 75% of 1 rep max for the first cycle and then 80% for the second cylce.

Yesterday:

1000m row

2 x 10 each:

OHS, 45#
hip and back extensions
GHD sit-ups
pull-ups
ring dips

Bench Press

10x45
8x95
5x135
5x175

10L-10R-10L-10R-10L-10R-10L-10R=100/10

5 min max rep double unders

233 reps (Doodoo!)

Today:

2 x each:

50 double unders

10x45

5x135
5x5x170

10 rounds

Had 30 second rounds going through the first 5 rounds, then fatigue took over.

Been a silent follower of your log for a while. What would you consider to be your biggest weaknesses at this point? Rowing? Doubleunders? Running?

What is your background as well? I'm curious how someone gets to be such an animal.

Thanks guys. I'd definitely have to say that running and rowing are my most glaring weaknesses. I blame it mostly on genetics, the curse of being a short guy (5'4") with short legs (28" inseam), but my running has degraded a lot since my flag football team broke up; the loss of all that extra sprinting each week has definitely had an impact. I've been trying to make an effort to put more into my program, but a busy schedule and record snow falls this winter have made it tough. As far as the secrets to my success, that's a lot of genetics too. I've always been strong for my size and I build muscle easily. I also learn new movements very easily, which is definitely a plus. When I first started working out seriously I did a pretty standard bodybuilding/powerlifting type split, then I slowly started gravitating towards a more athletic style of training before finding CrossFit. So, I guess my big secret was just starting out strong. I also had the added benefit of doing a lot of manual labor as a teenager and young adult. My family lived on a pretty big piece of property, so there was always a lot of yard work to be done. I spent some time working in a warehouse when I was about 20 and also spent about 2 years barbacking at a rock club where I had to haul kegs and cases of beer and liquor up and down several flights of stairs and run food, from a kitchen that was two blocks away at a restaurant that was under the same ownership, for about six hours a night 5 nights a week.
