Ummmm, no.

Can't wait to see you squatting in some proper foot gear! Until tomorrow....

Squats: 5x4@ 145
I tried squatting on the platform and my feet slipped all over the place. I'm back on the rubber next week, and I'll be in my new shoes.

I felt great. I lifted in my new shoes as well. I love them!
Tomorrow is my birthday!

Re: Trent's Log

I was supposed to ride but the weather was nasty and I wanted to lift again.

Front Squats:

This was my first time front squatting so we stayed light with the weight. I was really excited that I could FS because 3 months ago I did not have the flexibility in my left arm to keep it under the bar and at the proper height.

Back Squats:
4 sets, 5 reps, 150lbs.

First time back squatting in my shoes, I could tell a huge difference as my feet stayed planted. All of the reps were good. The last 2 of the last set were a little slow, I need to explode out of the hole more.
I took some pre-workout thing, never again! It made my legs feel funny and toyed with my HR. I did not like it.

3 sets, 5 reps, 220lbs
I feel like I have been at 220 forever! It's been 3 weeks now. Reps were good.

After Deadlifting I helped Wendy with her verbal ques, and there are a lot of verbal ques in Oly Lifting. She finished up with Squats and I couldn't resist Squatting a bit myself. I used a high bar placement for the first time and it made a HUGE difference! I blasted 80 and 100 for 5 reps. 120, 14, and 160 for 4 reps with the 160 being a PR. Then I went up to 165 for 2 reps, it was pretty easy considering I had already DLed.

Way to go Trent! I won't tell Stephen about the squats - but the contest is ON!

Warm up with Squats:

Ok, dumb way to warm up, I know. I'm just excited that I am actually progressing in this squat thing.

Bicycle training on exercise bike:
10 minute spin
Tabata interval
5 minute threshold

20 minute Steady State on the bicycle trainer

Cindy at Carolina Crossfit
14 rounds + 5 pullups + 3 pushups

2 rounds better than last time, the only problem I am having with this WOD is the pushups, they kill me.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 09:28 AM.
