Tim good lifting.

Did Murph today.

1 mile run
100 PUll Ups
200 Push Ups
300 Squats
1 mile run.

Swapped a 1500m row for 1 mile run. First five rounds of exercises were completed as 10 PU, 20 PUps, 30 squats, remainder were done 5-10-15.

Rows took 7:14 and 7:25, respectively. Total time was 42:32.

A friend told that he did not know what to give an Irishman on St. Paddy's day who does not drink. He gave me a potted shamrock plant instead. So I gave out shamrocks to people throughout the day.:kicking0:

Rest day for me.

65 and sunny here tomorrow. About halfway between my house and work there is a 2+ mile long earthen dam with a grass trail across the top. Bringing my Five Fingers and workout duds to work tomorrow and running that on my way home. With some pushups and stair climbs mixed in. Nice way to end a crazy week.

Then back to the Wendler 5/3/1 on Saturday.

Weather's been unseasonably warm here for the last few days, 65-70.
I know just how you feel [B]Steve[/B] - its back to running WODS this week (first time running since Sept). We did Mini Kelly (5 rds 200 meter/15 bj/15 wallball) 200s were nothing like sprints! [B]John[/B] are you on week 3 now?

3/19 WOD

Snatch Balance 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
Followed by 3 Rounds of:
30 Second L-Sits
20 KB Snatches.

Snatch balance: 45-55-65-75-80-85-85. Not a ton of weight, but I was able go deep on all the catches; although at the higher weights, I caught a little high, then continued to dip down. In any event, I ended up squatting below parallel with the weight extended overhead on every rep. This is a skill I needed work on, so I was pleased with this morning's performance. Shared the bar with KJ, who continues to perform these moves very well even under heavy loads.

4:48 on the L-Sit/KB snatch couplet. L-Sits started with legs fully extended out, albeit not parallel with the floor, then slowly pulled inward. I was able to hold my legs off the floor, even if cramped in, for the full :30 the first two rounds, then :20, :10 rest, :10 on last round. Tried snatching the 24 kg bell, but that was biting off a little more than I could chew, so I used 16 kg. Did five left, five right, five left, five right with essentially no breaks on each round. I was quite pleased with my time.

No starting week 2 on Saturday.

Really interesting (for anyone interested in 5/3/1). He recommends "assistance" exercises the same day you focus on the different major moves.

So when you dead lift, he wants you going on to (for example) lunges and knees to elbows. Sort of the traditional bodybuilding split mentality.

So what I've been doing is working the assistance exercises in to a higher rep MetCon WOD, following the "focus" dead lift (or shoulder press, or . . .) portion.

I will say I had pronounced DOMS after the dead lift day and the shoulder press day.

Everyone I talk to/read about (including my guy Robb Wolf) say this protocol really works as far as increasing 1RM, 3 RM and 5 RM strength. And it certainly seems to make sense. We'll see in a couple of weeks.
