JT - Awesome post. I'll be sharing that link with my family.

Cliff - Great work on the bench press PR! The hardest lesson I learned was to be patient with the recovery and I've had a few backslides. Luckily none of them that caused more damage.

12/01
Warmup: 1 mile dog walk; row 800m; Abmat sit-ups; weighted back extensions; shoulder prehab; hip and psoas stretches; shoulder press 45, 60, 70, 85X5
Lift: Shoulder press 95, 105 X5/ 120X8
Assist: Pull-ups 10, 7, 6, 7; shoulder press 70# X3X10

Pat, I wonder if I know Todd?

12/1 WOD

CF Football Total
Power Clean 1 Rep
Squat 1 Rep
Bench 1 Rep
Deadlift 1 Rep

*Perform a single max effort for the lifts listed above.
*After warm-ups, 3 attempts are allowed.
*Total must be done in the specified order.
*Combine all 4 lifts to create CF Football Total

Power Clean = 165 (failed 175)
Squat = 255 (failed 260)
Bench = 175 (failed 180 or 185)
Deadlift = 295 (failed 305 twice)
Total = 890
(Body weight 155, so Total = 574% of body weight for what that's worth)

Pleased with everything. I missed a 165 PC the other day, glad to get it today. My record book indicates 175 is my PR, but I am beginning to think that was a mistake; if so, then 165 ties my PR. Squat of 255 ties my PR. Missed a 175 bench press last month, glad to get it today. Only disappointment was deadlift. Pulled 275 during warm up easily, started at 305 but failed. After safety pull at 295 loaded 305 again and failed again. I think it was the fact that I had done so much work leading up to this that played a large part. Had I been fresh, 305 or 310 might have been doable.

Totally fun this morning. Worked with Franks, Adam, and Dave Roozee (who was most improved male and Dave's wife Bonnie was most improved female). Awesome efforts all the way around, special shout out to Danette for some awesome feats of strength (good thing Festivus is right around the corner).

12/3 WOD

3:00 to complete:
25 Overhead Squats (95#/65#)
Max Effort Row (cal) [B][I]= 35[/I][/B]
3:00 rest
3:00 to complete:
25 Kettlebell Swings (1.5/1)
Max Effort burpees [B][I]= 28[/I][/B]
3:00 rest
3:00 to complete:
25 push press (95#/65#)
Max Effort 10 M Shuttles [B][I]= 28[/I][/B]

Total = 91.

Only three athletes this morning, Sarah, Lloyd, and me. For a while I thought it was just going to be Traver and me, like the old days. Had that been the case, I would have mutinied the WOD and done a 5-minute kettlebell snatch test instead. (That WOD's on my wish list!)

Really went for it on the first couplet. All OHS's straight through, then really cranked on the rower. Second couplet, all KB swings straight through. Expectations were high for burpees, but I started really gassed and it never got better. Third couplet, had to set bar down twice to accomplish 25 PP's. Not very efficient on shuttle runs, but as Schultz started to lap me I watched what she was doing form-wise and tried to emulate that. Picked up speed a little.
