I had a late night helping my wife with some paperwork, so I slept in till 6 o'clock....:rolleyes:

My daughter convinced me to accompany her to the gym on post again. Globo workout today :D Don't get me wrong. The fitness center has great equipment but I always get the stares when I WOD there.

:yeahthat:

I am going to incorporate METCON work into my strength days. I have found that my endurance has been suffering. Still trying to find the right balance with my programming. I feel close.....

My strength has increased with 5-3-1 but I need to better my cardio. I should be running more but haven't brought myself to do so. :o

I decided to take my workout outdoors this evening. It was 98 degrees but didin't really feel that hot.....I was kind of sore for some reason, so I didn't get a run or ride in today.
Did a curcuit style WOD to get some additional cardio in and work out that soreness.

Today is the beginning of 5/3/1 cycle three; deloading phase. I had DLs today and did them at the gym because I was checking out their circuit training class.

[B]Strength[/B]
Deadlifts

5x140 WU
5x160 (planned weight was 155)
5x195
5x235

[B]Assistance exercises[/B]

Did 2x10 ea leg on the glute machine, 3x10 ea on leg curl machine and 30 back extensions.

[B]Endurance/Conditioning[/B]

The class was similiar to the agility one taught at the fitness center; 33 station with 40 seconds per. The difference was that it had weight training incorporated.
Some of the exercises were tricep extensions, bicep curls, hack squat, C&P and calf raises.
I ran into several of my former co-workers and people from my old unit, so it made for a great time and workout. BTW. The class was approximately 45 minutes.....I went full circle with three additional stations.

3.46 mile run in 32:16. I ran a trail that I hadn't been on in a while. I had forgotten how steep and long some of the hills were....:D I got some good offroad time in on this one; luckily, I decided not to wear my weight vest:eek:

I had two sticking points during this WOD. 1) Transitioning from FW to DU. The rope felt so light that it made it harder to skip the rope....2) Transitioning from dips back to FW. My dip harness was giving me some major issues.:ranting2:
Additionally, I suck at pistols:(

I wanted to keep it relatively light, and moderate so I went with a chipper style WOD today. I am planning to do the CFT tomorrow and didn't want any burnout.
I am hoping to enter the 1000# Club. I feel really confident with my squats and press, but I still have my doubts with the DL....:shrug: Mind over matter, right? I should do fine. In any case, I still hope to PR on all three lifts.

Well, today was the day. I felt confident in achieving 1000# this morning on my CFT!! Too bad that the outcome wasn't what I expected.....

[B][I]CFWU[/I][/B]

DL: 410, 410, 415 New PR:pepper:

Press: 205, 210f, 210f

Squat: 365, 375f, 370f....?

CFT: 985

As I workout on my own, I believe in the honor system. The last attempt on the squat was questionable, so I did not count it. I looked at it as if I were a judge in a competition.


I was expecting to get better lifts on squats and press but it didn't work out that way. :( I could have probably pulled more on my DL but three lifts is all that is allowed.


The 1000# Club has eluded me for the time being. That just fuels my fire to get after it some more and break into that group in the future!

[B]NOTE[/B]: Probably shouldn't have taken so much time between 5/3/1 cycle and CFT.....

I felt pretty good on all the lifts. I haven't been unleashing the beast, and pushing harder lately. Time to do so. I'm just reluctant sometimes because I don't want to set myself back by getting injured.....

This week caps off another cycle of 5/3/1. As I stated in a previous post, I was hoping for more gains in strength but I'm patient. I'm sticking to my guns and completing several more cycles and go from there.

10:59 was my finish time. It was a really good workout. My newly modified sled held up nicely. I hadn't used it on gravel, but the 97 cent baluster wood did not snap and had minimal wear.:highfive: The broad jumps were by far the hardest exercise....Not to mention, the crab walks did have a certain degree of suck.:p

[B]REST DAY[/B] :snore:

I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I shammed out today....:o I planned for this to be an active rest day but got lazy, then the wife put me to work.

In my defense, we were out late last night, so I am a bit tired.
