Thanks a lot

I'm following a program I designed by myself, I explained it in depth about 4-5 pages ago, youll know the post when you see it.

My eating: terrible. Too much carbs, barely any vegetables, an okay amount of fruits, too much processed food.

I also sleep about 5-6 hours a night due to schoolwork. I'm often left to think how much more my gains would be if my sleeping and eating were on par with my training. I think I am still improving because I'm a teenager, and there's tons of testosterone going through my body.

Sorry if that didn't really answer your questions. :S

How many calories do you get per day? You're at a bodyweight of 140#?

Yea, 140. And not a clue, I wouldn't even be able to tell you approx, because I don't really look at the nutrition facts of foods I eat.

Sorry mate

Re: My Quest To Become an Animal - Frankel's Log

February 19th

Today was okay. I've come to a realization that I'll explain later.

Back Squat 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
40x3x5
95x5
135x3
170x1
200x1
225x1
240x1
250x1
260x1
270x1
280x1
(This was quite tough, but I might have relaxed a little in the bottom. This is my current PR, but I was a hell of a lot deeper on this one than the last time I hit it.)
285x3x(f) (Rep 1: Chest dropped. Rep 2: Closest rep to standing up, but just couldn't get it up. Rep 3: Came backwards, couldn't stand up. I capped it at 3 attempts, I figured I would start to get tired anyways. Oh well.)

I actually intended to hit 300# today, but was surprised. The last time I hit 280 was in the first week of December. I've come to start thinking that I need to switch up my programming a little. I had Tamara Cohen write me up a template that includes squat, cleans, jerk, and snatches 2x a week, pressing/deadifting once a week, and 2 conditioning workouts a week, with three rest days. Ill post it up eventually. I need to workout with my coach how I'm going to work it into his Fitness class. I'll figure something out.

Anyways, waited about 20-25 mins, then:

Team WOD:
50 Thrusters @135#
75 Overhead Walking Lunges @45# Plate
100 Burpees
Time: 16:00

This was fun, my buddy was over so we did this together.

Thrusters: 20:30, Me:Him. This surprised me, but I was happy. I thought I'd be doing all singles. This took us the longest
OH Walking Lunges: 45:30, Me:Him. This went well, we went up and down a part of my street.
Burpees: 50:50, Me:Him. These were fast. Something I've noticed is that I can knock out fast sets of 10 burpees even if I'm tired, which is good.

Anyways, to sum it up: I was happy with the squat, the wod was good, and I need to change my programming.

Hey, nice work! I guess you win... I have 25 lbs to go on my 2.5xBW DL. Hit a solid 340 last week.

BW press is a huge benchmark. Keep it up!

Thanks so much
Damn, your DL is going up. I hit 290x3, 1RM attempt will be sometime this week but I won't go up if my back is rounding.

February 20th

Today went fantastically. Traps and Rhomboids are on fire from yesterday, and I thought it would inhibit my pressing, but I was wrong.

OHP 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
40x2x5
80x5
95x3
105x1
115x1
120x1
125x1
130x1
135x1
140x1
145x1
150x1
(PR! . This was a bit of a fight, almost lost it forward though. I've got video, I'll post it up later.)

Waited about 25 mins, then:

Tabata Ball Slams
Score: 10-9-10-10-10-10-10-12
Total Reps: 81

This was a good burner. Focus was on the hip extension/immediate, violent hip flexion, so I'm sure there were a couple time I did not hit full extension with my body at the same time (Shoulders/hips).

After that, hung up the rings and did some skill work. My triceps were sore enough that I could barely lock out MU's, but my Iron Cross progress is a hell of a lot better than it was over the summer. My MU's are a little bad now though. I just need to get in some more work with them.

Forgot to mention, no wraps were used.

I think I really only need them to push press, bench, and squat.

Take a close look at your feet. When you're at your sticking point, your heels come off the ground momentarily. Hard to say from the video if it made a difference or not, but I believe by the strict definition of the press that's a DQ.

Still stronger than me, though!
