Re: Mike's Mad Log

Had a great start to my day by escorting my youngest to her first day in middle school :pepper: Did make me feel kinda old, so it was game on for my workout....


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:



20m Farmer's walk 75# ea hand
5 DU
5 Pistols,rt leg
20 Hammer strikes 12#
5 Pistols,lft leg
10 K2E
5 Wtd dips 50#

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:(

Re: Mike's Mad Log

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.

Unfortunate turn of events have made me decide to take today off......:ranting2: CFT will have to wait.

Re: Mike's Mad Log

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.....


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.....

Had several people to visit and parties to attend. I got in a decent workout though.


5 rds

10 Push press 95#
10 Squat-box jump ladder (floor to 12" box to 24" box)

The box jumps were performed as a squat jump to box one to box two. I wasn't sure if there was an actual name for the movement.....
