My youngest graduates from high school today. Almost ready to leave the nest. Sigh.

Today: squats 5 x 3 reps: 195, 205, 225, 235, 245(couldn't get all the way down on 3rd rep), 245 (same, but almost got to below parallel). Heaviest I've ever tried.

Great Nancy times, folks! She & me have a bad relationship!! :D Don't know how anyone can run after each set of OHS even with just the bar!!

Perry - impressive back squatting! I hurt myself doing 245! Took we a month & a half to recover & I was black & blue in places I NEVER thought I'd get black & blue!!

Jim - Love that Fran time! Can't believe you're out of practice!

Tim - Welcome back!

Michelle - I'm the opposite of you. My cleans need the work!

[B]WU:[/B]
Missed the regular warm up
10 PVC pass throughs
PVC press downs (4 sets)
rotator cuff openners

[B]WOD:[/B]
2-2-2-2-2-2-2 weighted pull ups

11.2#, 14#, 19.6#(1), 22.4#(f), 19.6#(1), 18.2#, 19.6#(1)

[I]Pull ups are a REAL goat. But the good thing is that I can jump up to reach the bar @~8ft. I've also found a place outside my building to practice Pull ups![/I]

Bill: how did you get black and blue, did you fall? I'm being really careful and keeping form very strict. Since I never did squats until about 6 months ago, I'm sure I'll make quick gains and then plateau. I don't have much interest in going super heavy, but it's hard not to challenge yourself once you've conquered a particular poundage.

Ive fallen under 145#..... just got all soft in the bottom and kept going down - with the bar on my back. no black and blue tho. :)

[B]6_18_11 Saturday[/B] Blairstown

75#/3
85#/3 (2)
95#/3
100#/2
105 (2)

[B]Leg Ext[/B] havent done one of these in 20 yrs, light ones - hold at top 3 sec lower will have to see if it affects the knees

58 mile bike up Rt. 22 to Brewster and then to Rt. 121, to North Salem, detour west to Rt. 116, back to 121 to 22 and home. *Too much, too soon. Kinda bonked. *A large bowl of my kids Annies pasta and a lot of water to try to revive. *Cannot move.*

@the Dam

1/4 mile jog
6x120 stairs up, then down, mostly jogging
1/4 mile jog


06.18.11
Wendler 5/3/1, Month 5, Week 3
Dead Lift Day

WARM
DL
5x185

WOD
DL
5x265
3x300
2x335

Had at least 1-2 more in me on the heavy set, but my tweaked hammie (from Sunday) started screaming at me a bit. DRAG. I am going to have to take it relatively easy on DL for a cycle, I'm afraid, and get this thing rehabbed a bit, though I did push my 1RM up to around 370 (at least in terms of what I did in week 1 this month and what I think I could have done today with no hammie pull).

Also gonna get a bit more serious about the diet for a while, been getting a bit porkier of late and I think some of that could just be the anabolic effect of the work I'm doing (including the sprints), but I also feel like I'm doing enough low-to-moderate intensity stuff that I shouldn't be packing on pounds quite like this. 205-210 with no strength loss would be great, although I think I am going to lose some DL strength due to the hammie.
