Last deload workout. And it was a fun one. Will get the video uploaded when I get home. I did this session at 4 a.m. as i had to be in court at 8:30 2 hours from my home.
Snatches: went 20x3, 40x3, 60x3, 75x3x3 - I lost the last snatch on the last set and went flying backwards, caught it on tape. Somehow managed to throw the barbell forward as I was off the ground flying backwards. Awesome.
Cleans: went 70x3, 100x3, 120x3x3
Jerks: went 70x3, 100x3, 120x3x3
Squats: went 135lbx5, 225x5, 315x5, 365x5, 315x5
RDLs: went 120x5, 165x4x5
More roller and yoga
1.23.10 waterpark in Sevierville, TN - good lord this has been a long day of running up stairs, chasing my 9 year-old, and riding water rides. I never knew a wave pool could be so debilitating. Then we went to Magi-quest and completed 10 "quests" in 2 hours - she ran me ragged there too. Gonna sleep good tonight.
1.24.10 - nothing physical, but driving and packing up.
1.25.10 I had some epic beefcake tonight. Lots of PRs. Deload works. Even when I suck and miss lifts because I suck. Not that I don't have the strength, I just suck. And I'm okay with it because I suck less than I used to. I believe in degrees of sucking.
Started with yoga and roller.
Then to box power snatch. Went 20x3, 40x3, 60x3, 75x3, 90x3, 100x3, 100x3, 100x3 - each of the 100x3 were PRs. I know it leaves a lot to be desired, but i think my barpath is less loopy with the heavier weights? Still loopy, but less loopy. Sucks less? I think?
Then did some tall box drills; 40x2, 60x2, 70x2
Then did some OHS: 75x5, 105x3, 105x3, 105x3, 105x3
Then did some back squats: went 135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 405x5, 500x5 - that 500x5 was the heaviest I've gone in more than 10 years. I did it for 8 when I was younger and lot stoopider. I actually feel a lot stronger now than I did then. Look like ****, but oh well - I can deal with it.
Then did snatch pulls: went 100x3, 130x3x3.
Then did 4 board - 135x5, 225x5, 315x5 - left shoulder wasn't feeling right, so ditched it.
Then did some kb presses - really fixed my shoulder. it stopped hurting. Went 16x5RL, 24x5RL, 32x5RL, 40x5RL, 48x2R,1L.
Then did abs.
