This semester has been an absolute mess in terms of scheduling, course load, and work. I modified "Christine" with 135# deadlifts to work on technique and didn't do the workout for time. It is great to be at a point, finally, where I can start working out consistently again. It's my own darn fault .
I sure am hoping that the one month lapse between your posts to your blog just means that you did not have access to a computer for a month!



Hope everything is going well for you down there. Glad to see you've found time to work out again.

Will you be coming back up here for Turkeyday or Winter Break? If so - stop back in to the Affiliate to say hi.

Gah I wish! It has been a tougher adjustment than I expected from undergraduate to graduate but I'm making it a priority (which it should've always been). My plate is just too full!

I will definitely be back over both Thanksgiving and winter break - I plan on working out all the time during both too so you will be seeing me. Now hopefully when you do it will actually be in an "in shape" state so I don't hate life for the entire time I'm back hah.

2 rounds of:
95# Squat Cleans
Run 400m
-
95# OHS 2 x 3

Did a quick workout to take a break from studying. My IT band is bothering me from an easy 2 mile run I did at a charity event on Saturday afternoon. Hopefully some self-myofascial release will do the trick.

3 rounds of:
500m Row
15 Push Press 95#
-
500m Row

I hate working out in a Globo Gym. They have an olympic lifting platform and bumpers but I can't ever do the workouts I want because people get in my way. I think I'll have to start investing in a garage gym.

That sucks, John... being forced to go the garage route.
especially since a decent bar and set of bumpers is a good chunk of change.

Best of luck!

Re: Johnny Mac's Log

30 October 2008

ME Black Box

(TB) Deadlift

5 x 135
5 x 155
5 x 175
5 x 185
5 x 195

I didn't have any problems pulling the weight. With 195 it was heavy enough that I really felt like I was using my lower back. I'm still unclear about my technique. I've been trying to get my hips back and my butt down lower so I don't straighten my legs too early and use all lower back. I don't think I'm engaging my hamstrings, glutes, or legs enough .

Good grief! It has been a long time since I updated this log. Now that I'm back at CF Alexandria, hopefully I won't allow my record keeping to fall apart again. My first WOD back was a great one - especially in our AMAZING NEW box.

CF Alexandria WOD

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 of:
225# DL
135# PP

For time.

Scaled:
135# DL
115# PP

Performing this WOD as Rx'd was tough. My DL form needs some serious work at a much lighter weight. As Sean and I learned tonight, I flatten out my back and lose the proper back angle because my butt rises too quickly. So I'm getting no hamstring activation and pulling mostly with my lower back - not good. After doing the first set of 10 at 225#, I scaled down to 135# and kept the Push Presses at 135# as well, but then switched after a few too many failed attempts. I need to work on strength!
