My Log - Because Sometimes I Don't Have Paper.

Had a log before and neglected it. I always hear people praising the idea of writing everything down so I'm going to try to get back on the bandwagon, starting today.


May 12, 2010


Warm-Up:

5 Minutes Barefoot Jump Rope
Coach-led Burgener Warm-up
Armbreakers/Dislocates

WOD:

5-5-3-3-1-1-1 Snatch

Didn't pay attention to the weight for the 5 rep or 3 rep sets... used them mainly as a warmup to finding my one rep max.

I have a hard time fully squatting to catch the snatch. I do not yet feel comfortable catching semi-heavy weight in that position.

This was the first true snatch strength workout I've ever done.

120# was the max weight I could do with proper/safe form.

I'm actually quite pleased with that, considering it's my first time.


As a side note, I was rejected from the Coast Guard today because, by their standards, my wrist tattoos extend too far down my arm. I am now beginning training for my second choice, Navy SEALs. WOOT.

Thanks, Tamara.


Thursday, May 13

It was a rest day at the box but I went up there anyway to work on some stuff.

Since I did the snatches yesterday and wasn't comfortable with that much weight above my head, I decided to work on some overhead squats.

Just did 1 rep at a time and made it up to 125# before my left wrist felt as if it were going to explode.


Did snatch balances at a very light weight, 65# to get more comfortable with the dropping to the ground part. Still feels odd and my knee pain doesn't help. The pain is actually a blessing in disguise because it makes me more aware of whether or not my knees are tracking directly over my toes. I have to take a little wider stance than I would like to avoid any pain on the drop. Also, my shoulder flexibility sucks. I thought it was good until I found out I have to spread my hands all the way to the weights to be able to rotate them enough to OH with heavy weight. Oh well, just somethin' else to work on.



Friend from the box brought in a 100 lb. sandbag. Did a few sets of turkish getups with that, as well as with a 45 lb. bar, 44 lb. kettle bell, and 53 lb. kettlebell. I think these are one of the strangest exercises ever but I really enjoy them.




Felt good overall today. Since it's been nice out and we have been doing more running at the box, my legs have not really healed and my calves are pretty much in perpetual pain. Gonna take it easy on the running for a while... I'll probably throw in some more rowing instead.

Re: My Log - Because Sometimes I Don't Have Paper.

Entry for Friday, May 14th

Had work yesterday so I just went to the regular local gym near my house and deadlifted. Maxed it out at 315#... last time I deadlifted was May 4th and it was 300#. I feel I could have gone heavier but I don't really like to go too heavy when I don't have bumper plates.

Messed around with some dumbbells afterward. Worked on hang cleans (55# DBs, 65# DBs). Was really just trying to figure out my form as I haven't really done many exercises with dumbbells.

Re: My Log - Because Sometimes I Don't Have Paper.

Monday, May 17th


Overhead Squats 5-5-3-3-1-1-1-1-1-1...

45-65-85-95-105-115-125-130PR-135PR-140F-140PR

Did some overheads last week and could only get 125# up. Very happy with 15# progress in one week.


Also deadlifted today (I've been on a binge lately) and got up 320#, new PR.

Re: My Log - Because Sometimes I Don't Have Paper.

Congratulations on the OHS and Deadlift PRs! As your OHS goes up your snatches should get easier and being able to pull more weight on the deadlift is just fun. Nothing like seeing all those plates on the bar, right? Good work.

Thanks, dude! Since I started eating a lot more (4-5,000 calories per day) my strength has been exploding pretty much. It's awesome.


Wednesday, May 19

Warmup:

2 laps
15 squats
10 pullups
20 wallballs (15#)
some jumping of rope (F U double-unders)

WOD:

"Fat Fran"

15-12-9-6

135# Thrusters
Chest-to-bar pullups

19:20

Considering my max thruster is about 150# this was a bit of a grind. Also, Brennan has a rule that we can't re-rack the weight once we get it out. We have to drop it. So, every time I dropped the weight, I had to clean it and then do a thruster. This wouldn't be that bad if it weren't for the fact that I did most of the reps in singles, so it was pretty much power clean + thruster for every rep.

I'm really proud of my time on this actually. 135# is only 30# less than my bodyweight. The pullups were really easy. Had an overall great time doing the WOD. Felt great, had good form.
