Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
Thanks for the encouragement Anthony. Not working out is TORTURE!! The doctor still hasn't called me with the test results. There's nothing more frustrating than sitting around doing nothing, especially when it's because you don't know what to do.

I'm back!

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 GHD situps
10 kipping pullups, chest to bar
10 hip and back extensions
10 ring dips

power cleans x 1 rep

135-155-185-205-225-245(x)-235-245(x)-245(x)-235-240-240-245(x)-245

Just say no to mono. Four weeks gone and I'm finally cleared to workout. Today was a nice way to start back in. I didn't hit any PR's, but it was a nice way to shock the CNS and start cranking my energy level back up. I just can't believe it took me so many attempts to hit 245. I haven't done heavy cleans in months, and my 3rd pull has much rust on it.

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 hip and back extensions
10 kipping pullups, chest to bar
10 GHD situps
10 HSPU's, from floor

3 rounds
25 inverted burpees
25 pullups
25 burpees

30:36

No big surprise, but my cardio output is shot. I guess that's to be expected after being on the shelf for almost a month. I had every intention of completing the full five rounds when I started. However, when it took me 30 min to finish the first three, I decided to cut it off. It's probably not the best idea to do a 50 min metcon on my second day back. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the inverted burpees. They're interesting, but I don't really see them as "functional". I'm not sure if I'll do this WOD again, if it ever comes back around. I think I may go back to doing my own programming for a while, so I can focus a little more on recovering my stamina.

Going on a 2 on, 1 off schedule until I'm back up to speed.

10 hip and back extensions
10 kipping pullups, chest to bar

This is a little over a minute slower than my PR.

"Cindy"

20 min AMRAP

7 rounds below my PR... Uggh!

warmup x 3:

10 elbow to instep lunges
10 good mornings, 45#
10 deadhang pullups, chest to bar
20 abmat situps, unanchored
20 pushups

Press x 5 reps

135-145-155-160-165

Not bad, for the moment. I don't actually know what my PR is for 5 reps. I think it's 175, but not sure. I'll take 10# shy, in my current condition.

1 mile hill run

untimed (forgot my watch)

5:00

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 hip and back extensions
10 deadhang pullups, chest to bar
10 GHD situps
10 HSPU's, from floor

Deadlifts x 3

225-315-405-415-425-435(f)

100 pushups for time

3:34

The deadlifts felt horrible. I hit 465 (PR) for three reps a couple days before the mono hit me. When I tried to get 435 today, I was seeing stars just trying to get it off the ground. Pushups sucked too; I should be able to do 100 without stopping. I think I'm going to spend the next few weeks focusing on regaining my strength level.

After taking a break from deadlifts, the first few sessions always give me stars. You'll be back in no time, just be patient!

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
Thanks Anthony. After today's session, combined with yesterday and Saturday, it's starting to look like I've lost about 10% off of each of my lifts. I think it's mostly CNS response. I don't feel like my muscles are failing me so much as my ability to deliver energy to them. The big thing that I had trouble with today was getting under the bar. I could get the bar to go up just fine, but on my attempts at 245 and 235 I just couldn't get under the bar fast enough. On the bright side, my 2k row wasn't far off my PR.

warmup x 3:

10 OHS, 45#
10 hip and back extensions
10 deadhang pullups, chest to bar
10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

Push Jerk x 1

135-155-185-205-225-245(x)-235(x)

2k row
