It's been so long since I last lifted, I figured I'd just scrap my original training log and start over. Plus, I hated the title of my old log (this one's bad, too, but at least it's a different kind of bad). I'll be following the PM WODs, with some occasional KB work thrown in for fun. Weights in kg unless otherwise specified.

Here's to new beginnings:

I. BS - 75% x 4 x 5

105 x 4 x 3

Man, it felt good to squat again. I never thought I'd be saying that. The squats themselves felt surprisingly strong, but in between sets I had immediate soreness. Figured it was best to cap it at 3 sets for the first day back.

II. PP - 70% x 5 x 5

50 x 5 x 5

I have no idea what my max PP is. I really suck at any dynamic overhead movements. Presses are fine, but PP, jerks and snatches all blow. It's an obvious general weakness to work on. So I kept these light and concentrated on form: maintaining upright back, tempo change and driving head through.

III. Snatch pull - 90% (of snatch) x 5 x 5

50 x 5 x 5

Given the hamstring soreness from above, these were, um, interesting. I've got get straps. And maybe petition my gym for some Olympic bars.

IV. Weighted sit-ups - 3 x 10
Full, unanchored, with a 25# plate.

Not sure how to do these, but I just put a plate on my chest and felt the burn.

T-t-t-today, Junior:

I. Snatch high-pull + muscle snatch - 70% (of MS) x 4 sets

50 x 4 sets

II. 3-position snatch (floor, knee, mid-thigh) - 70% x 5 sets

45 x 5 sets

Get the weight BACK.

III. Power jerk + jerk - 75% (of jerk) x 4 sets

60 x 4 sets

Should have gone heavier.

IV. Pullup/rowing metcon.

Rowing :cool:
Pullups :mad:
