Brent's Workout Log

Went to a CF Gym for the first time. Completed the warm up, then a fitness test (not CFT). Will get results when I can.

Incredibly Sore, Rested.


Fight Gone Bad.

3 rounds of:
Wall-ball 10 ft target (14#)
Sumo deadlift high-pull (maybe 45#)
Box Jump 20"
Push-press (maybe 45#)
Row (Calories)

I'll put time up later.

Sore, Rested



Box Jump
Frog Hop Burpees

*Rope Climb after odd rounds

My Core is in need of a lot of building, so K2E was almost impossible. I got 3 true k2e on the first set, but following that I did the best I could.

I climbed the knotted rope twice after the first two supersets, but I had to switch to "descends" on set 5. I was proud that I could climb the rope at all (I'm new to CF, and not a 'strong guy', yet)

Very Sore, rested.


Shot my first Speed Steel Match (trying a new sport)... happy with my performance, might have done a little better had I not still been sore from Friday. Fortunately, my score was only for personal gratification, not my national ranking.

Every 2 minutes for 20 minutes:
Sprint 200m
Max rep Wall Ball (12#)

I ran cross country in high school, but a series of knee injuries post-college has made me leary of running. Fortunately, splitting up the running with Wall Ball helped. No knee pain.

Lucky 7

7 Rounds for Time:

7 Push Jerk (65#) (my first time doing olympic-style lifting)
7 Burpees
7 Straight Leg Lifts

Today was a hard day. The workout from the push jerk left me unable to complete true push-ups during the burpees after the first set. The straight leg lifts also were beyond my current strength level.

time: 19:1X

:highfive: Wow...great working going on here! Keep at it! Bear with the soreness for the first 2-3 weeks or so and it will get better. If it doesn't, scale back your workouts so at least you are only "sore" the next day, not "incredibly sore". :yikes:

35# Kettle Swing/Double Under/Box Jump


I'm still not at the stage where I can do continuous double unders. I can go generally 1-1-2-1-1-2-1-1-2 or 1-2-1-2-1-2-1. The fact that only doubles counted meant that 20 double unders for me was closer to double or triple the number of turns for a pro. That plus the 24" box jump really did a number on me. I literally had to lay down for a few moments to catch my breath following the 20th box jump. My time was pretty abysmal, 29:3x, due mostly to the breaks I required to keep from stroking out.

Thank goodness tomorrow is my 3/1 day of rest.

Rest Day. Calves were wicked sore...
USPSA Match at Markham Park. Placed 4th/15 in my Division.
stage 2:
stage 3:


Day of preparation for the US Steel Nationals. Calves still sore. Did a 20 squats, 20 sit-ups, and 10 push ups to stay limber. 45 min of dry practice.


US Steel Nationals

Nationals went quite well. My time was 149.xx seconds, which I was proud of.


Sunday. Calves fully recovered.

Weigh in: 175.8 lbs

3 Rounds for Time:

800 Meter Run
15 Deadlift (145#)
15 DB Hang Power Snatch (10#) per arm

I took it easy with the DB power snatch. 2 years ago I broke my left clavicle. 1 year ago I separated my right AC. I could tell a subtle difference between the feel of my right and left arms but there wasn't any pain.
