Alright, so I suck at maintaining workout logs. But I figure I'll try again. I'll start two days ago.

Just a quick one.

Front Squats


Went light to dial my form back in.

Power Clean+ Push Press

I'm frustrated with my power cleans, because I know I have the power to move a lot more weight, but my form just isn't there. Oh well - I'll just have to do a lot more of them.

"Kill The Hill"

Today was our first "Kill The Hill" workout on Carmel Beach sandhill. I'll get a picture of the hill to try to make any who haven't seen it understand. The best I can describe it is...stupid. It's freaking stupid. It's about 80 to 100 meters of steep, soft sand. It's just stupid.

4 rounds for time:

Get up the hill (this was a combination of sprint, stop, walk, sprint)
10 thrusters (20 lbs each hand)
15 squats

Completed in: 20:57

I need heavier dumbbells. That workout was absolutely ridiculous. I was going to do 5 rounds, but after 4 I'd had it. It was just...stupid. Stupid. Next time I'm taking my 100lb punching bag out there and I think Russ and I are going to do partner drags or something. That'll be fun. And by fun, I mean stupid.

Okay, so here's what my workout was supposed to be.

5 rounds for time:
30 wall ball (12# ball - heaviest we had)
1 rope climb, 15 ft

But, being the fatty I am, I only completed the full rope climb in round 1, so I switched to pullups after that. It looked like this.

Round 1: 30 wall ball, 1 rope climb
Round 2: 30 wall ball, half rope climb, 8 pullups
Rounds 3,4,5: 30 wall ball, 12 pullups

Time: 14:54

That was a terrible workout. Once I get down to 200 lbs I'll be much better at rope climbs. Yes I'm eating in the Zone. The stupid, stupid Zone...

Worked on my rope climbs.

That workout was kinda hard. By which, I mean OW.

Don't forget to update your log.

Thanks Russ.

Went to HQ today and injured my elbow about 4 minutes into the workout. Did 21 dumbbell squat cleans with a 90 lb dumbbell (holding onto the head), elbow started hurting around rep 10, but being the idiot I am, I kept going. Got 20 pullups, elbow was hurting a lot, so switched to 95 lb barbell squat cleans, but it wasn't going to happen. It feels fine right now. so hopefully it's minor, but I'm going to stay off it for a few days just to be safe.
