Re: AEB Workout Log
That was one of the best fights for a rep I've ever seen. You even adjusted your hands on the bar mid-rep...not even sure how you did that. :highfive:

Rach, I need a permanent videographer. I have no idea what happens between the bottom and the top. I just know I need to stand the F up.

Came back at 6 to do the 30 GHD situps and back extensions. They suck.

So, weighted pullup day. I proved I can still do 1 body weight, but we added 2.5# and I couldn't move. I have serious problems knowing where the bottom is, so I always worry that I'm faking the ones I do get.

Metcon involved double unders, so it was tragic. I think I do them in the least efficient way possible, because my biceps always hurt and then they kill my pullups.

7 minute AMRAP: 20 DU, 10 Pullups, 10 AKB. 2 rounds, 2 DU, LB

Pullup jumps:
BW+2.5 (fail)

Deadlift day. I felt really good this morning, but I still didn't get 230# all the way up. I'm super hesitant on the deadlift, as I don't want to hurt myself, but Rach said I was really high when I slowed down, then just dropped it.

I squatted on Monday more than I deadlifted today.

We warmed up with broad jumps, I got 87".

The metcon was a neural recharge, 1 minute of broad jumps, 1 minute of box jumps, 1 minute of alternating 1 armed medball throws. I did 2 rounds because I landed on my shin in the 2nd box jump round (AGAIN). I was getting too cocky, I'm sure, but the 24" I was doing felt pretty easy. I got complacent.

Deadlift jumps:

220x1 (maybe I should have done 215?)

DUDE. if you can get the bar off the ground you can totally finish the lift. next time just stand when you squat. you have it.

Press day and an overall check in the "win" column.

Press PR at 84# and 45 seconds off my "Jeremy" time at 5.54.

Jeremy is one of my favorite workouts, as it combines a strength (OHS) with a weakness (burpees). Also, I'm actually pretty good at it.

Today I got winded practially immeidately and I still have awful burpee cough, but I PRd pretty well.

Press Jumps:
79x1 (old PR)
84x1 (PR)

Re: AEB Workout Log
Thanks Rach. Press PRs are sooooo hard to come by

Re: AEB Workout Log
Tell me about it. I haven't matched my press PR since Ethan was born. And before that, it took me 9 months to get from 65-70#. (Overall PR is 75.) ANNOYING! :ranting2:
