Tuesday PM-
3 rounds
20 AAB calories
20 ghd
7:20 used first round as warm up. Its getting better but still needs work.

Sadly I have not rowed in about a month- then did 2 1000 meter rows sandwiched between some heavy endurance met con and the row felt fine. Was able to hold a 1:50-1:52 pace for the last 1k row.

Took off Thursday. Much needed rest. We will see what happens after a full rest day. Seems its hard to get back into the swing of things after resting.

Maybe a long warm up is needed.

Saturday PM- did the Air assault bike easy for 8 miles.

Sunday 8:30AM Session. Don't much care for working out in the AM. But it was hot and I woke up early so I was ok.

Warm up. Hip circle, ohs stuff, stretching and flossing.

Squat clean- 45-235# was ok working up to 87%

Some power cleans with 185#.

I have struggled with MU. I have been working on MU progression and drills. I have made some progress in the drills but have not tested the results in over a month. No MU in a month.

I usually keep loose and just get high enough to catch myself right at the bottom of the rings and top of arm pits. I have never been able to get any height.. until now..

My swing is tighter and I push on the rings when I go back and stay tight and patient during the up swing and actually am able to use some hip pop to get up.

I caught the rings nearly at the top. WTG!

Just did a few reps (10) but was happy to gain the progress.

Nasty 4 RFT
Run 400 meters
25 GHD
Took 14+ min.
My GHD speed limit is near 75-80 reps.. anything more than that I am toast. Get this pain in my legs that shuts off the power in my legs.. hurts to say the least.

Took off the 4th of July. Was good with the family.

Hey Vic, I noticed a couple of Misfit Athletics workouts this past week. Do you have a coach you work with to do your programming? Or do you do it yourself? Planning on stepping up my own training soon so I'm curious to hear what works best for people in terms of programming.

Re: 2014 45-49 Fittest on the Planet goal
I workout with a friend at his gym and he follows Fisfits programming. I do have a coach that gives me stuff to work on right now its MU progression and building my pull strength at the top. I also have been doing class workouts and scaling up. I find it hard to work out by myself so the class setting is good.

My priority is to stay un injured while fixing the injuries. I don't know if I can take another blow to my body such as the last two back injuries.

Its the off season and 2nd goal is just to get stronger. I lost some umph over the last 2 years.

3rd is to enjoy this and the process. Goal is to get on the podium of the games next year.

I hope that your training goes well.
