Michael A. Jones 07-29-2015 07:28 PM

Re: Mike's Mad Log


I followed the CF main for today. I was very "ambitious" when it came to beginning weight....:rolleyes:


After the third set, I knew that things were going downhill. I maintained good form, but called it at 2 reps; no weight adjustments.

[B]Conditioning[/B] 35 minutes of interval training

[B]Conditioning[/B]30 minute interval session at the park.

I wanted to participate in the 31 Heroes WOD but did not have a partner nor could I cancel my weekend classes to do it in the a.m. :(

Instead, I paid tribute to the 30 Men and K9 lost aboard Extortion 17 on 6 August 2011.

31 Minute AMRAP
8 KB Snatch 30-40-50#

Re: Mike's Mad Log

[B]Conditioning[/B] Began the day by leading some executives from Coca Cola with 30 minutes of interval training. They were in town for a conference, and wanted to take part in the program that Coke grants funds to; Troops For Fitness.

Followed CF main:
Every 2 minutes for as long as possible complete:

From 0:00-2:00
15-ft. rope climbs, 2 ascents
185-lb. front squats, 2 reps
Continue adding 2 reps to the front squat each interval for as long as you are able.
Subbed rope climbs as I don't have adequte height in my garage....I ran the rope over my squat rack, and did 4 supine rope climbs per 2 ascents.

Finished at 14 minutes plus 8 squats. This one was harder than represented.

[B]Conditioning Part Deux[/B] Led a nother 30 minute session of intervals at the park this time.



Michael A. Jones 08-08-2015 06:50 PM

Re: Mike's Mad Log

[B]Conditioning[/B] 35 minutes of interval training. I increased the work interval to :32. Seems the cooler weather, not that mid 90s in cool, allowed everyone to go a while longer compared to previous days.

5 KB Romanian DL 50#
*1 KB Press per arm
*1 Pull Up

*Increase 1 rep per round to 8
