[B]Mainsite WOD 170914[/B]

Followed Rory McKernan's tips on how to tackle this workout. I took about 30 minutes of drills to get ready for this one. I couldn't recall my last front squat PR, so I shot for 310# going into round 8; worked out well!! After completion, I went back and found my previous PR was 320# on Dec. 30th, 2015.

Re: Mike's Mad Log

I've been itching to get back to more weightlifting, and deadlifts are at the top of my 'to do list.'

I knew better than to begin where I left off numbers wise, so use the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) 1RM Protocols.

[B]Weightlifting[/B] :weight_l:
[I]Warm Up
3x15 Air Squats
3x10 Good mornings w/ emptiy bar
Spent about 10 minutes going over approach, foot placement, and practiced some hinging.[/I]

1RM Projection- 345#
40%- 2x4 w/ 10 seconds rest 140#
60%- x3 w/ 30 seconds rest 210#
75%- x2 w/ 60 seconds rest 260#
80%- x1 w/ 120 seconds rest 275#
90%- x1 w/ 180 seconds rest 310#
95%- x1 w/ 180 seconds rest 330#
x1 w/ 180 seconds rest 345#
x1 w/ 180 seconds rest 365#
x1 w/ 180 seconds rest 375#(f)

New 1RM is 365#. I knew going into today that I had lost some strength; not as much as I imagined, so I'll build off this.
Already have a plan in place that a friend followed. It's 16 weeks long.

Weathers was wounded Sept. 28 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when he heroically ran to a rooftop through hundreds of incoming rounds to repel an attack of insurgents who were attempting to overrun his position. His actions saved the lives of five U.S. Green Berets and nine Afghan Commandos at his location. Weathers was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group, at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

Weathers is survived by his parents, Michael and Jere; sister, Carrie; brother, Dusten; and many other friends and family.[/I]

Rest in peace, SFC Weathers!!
