Mike's Training Log (continued from CF Manchester)
Since the CF Manchester message board closed to avoid duplicating information on here, I am going to start logging my workouts on here.
Ideally I would post up all my previous workouts from when I started my log, but until I figure out how to do that I'll post from now

1st April 2008
Four rounds, each for time of:
800 meter run

2.55, 3 mins rest,
3.06, 3 mins rest,
3.07, 4 mins rest,

haven't got access to a proper track so used the small one inside my gym which is about 130m long (i know that 6 x 130 isn't 800, but it's plenty far enough with the tight bends)

Weighted Deadhang Pull Ups (DB held between the knees :thumbs_do

3 x 14kg DB
3 x 18kg DB
3 x 22kg DB
2 x 26kg DB (just couldn't get my chin over the bar for love nor money on the third rep)

not a huge fan of running, but didn't seem like i was actually in the gym for that long

left hamstring pulled after squatting and jumping aggravated the mild strain from the back extensions on the 2nd - not fun at all since i now move with all the style and grace of someone needing a zimmer frame!
not to worry though, time to 'work wounded'

5 rounds of:-
Max reps BW bench press 85kg
Max deadhang pull ups
7 - 9
7 - 8
7 - 8
9 - 7
5 - 7
Total = 69

followed up with tabata arnold presses using 6kg DBs - a slightly humbling experience. rounds scores:-
10, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 7 for a total of 68

6th April
Missed the WOD due to a coaching course out in the snow all day so was well and truly ****ed off and cold when I got to the gym and got a mate to write something up for me. He came up with
Shoulder Press 36kg
Deadhang Pull Up
Ring Dips (changed to press ups half way through 20 as I had no energy :mad:)
Sit Ups (feet anchored)

very slow, very painful and no energy - having a pulled hamstring really ****es me off and limits what i can do!

Then did Death by Pull Up
13 rounds + 10 [B]PB[/B]
