The amount of motivation required to hit it in my basement gym is infinitely greater than when I would train during my lunch break at work.

Don't know why, just that I'm lazy, I guess.

February 5. 2007

Row @ 5 - 500m - 1:48
Core Performance Movement Prep
scap pushup - 15
X-band walk - 4 L/R

hanging leg raises - 6, 6

deadlift - 45 x 5, 95 x 4, 135 x 3, 185 x 2, 225 x 1, 275 x 1, 290 x 4, 295 x 4, 300 x 4
snatch grip deadlift - 135 x 12
rack DL - 365 x 3, 365 x 3, 365 x 1

bulgarian split squat -20 x 10, 25 x 10
(superset full rest - 90 seconds)
back extensions - 10, 10

face pull - 40 x 15, 40 x 15

Row @ 5 - 2000m - 7:44 a 4 second improvement over 1/22/2007
224 Avg Watt
1st 500m - 1:50.2
2nd 500m - 1:56.6
3rd 500m - 2:00.9
4th 500m - 1:56.2

Notes:
-New Rules of Lifting Strenght II workout C
-Deadlifts - Complete reset method like the last time I did workout C, meaning I'd completely put the bar down and re-position myself for each heavy rep. I'll try to go up to 305 or 310 next time
-Rack Deadlifts - 1st set was kind of shaky, the 2nd set was great the 3rd set I felt weak so I stopped rather than try to deadlift with poor form.
-Bulgarian Split squat - 25 was a good weight, perhaps start with 25 next time and go up to 30?
-Face pull - done with pronated grip it was supposed to be done with a nuetral grip though...oops
-2K Row - I need to row more the correct rowing form is still not intuitive, I'm still struggling to make sure I drive more with my legs before pulling with my arms. I'm also rushing the recovery too much. I do like my 4 second improvement though, I'd say that the raching start helped with that a little

Last year sometime Alwyn Cosgrove wrote something talking about his reading habits and how he tries to read 1 fitness related or business related book a week. After thinking about this and thinking of how much better off a person would be if they stuck by that simple rule. Starting this month I'm going to read 1 fitness related book per month, along with my sci-fi books that I can't stay away from!

January 2007 - Lights Out


Reading right now - Core Performance Essentials and Spin. After I finish those books I'll post a review here.

Notes:
Snatch - I was just messing around today while waiting for the rower to open up lower back was tight from deadlifts so I just used the bar. Split style felt very weird just wanted to try it out.
Row with traveling burpee - I spent about 10-15 seconds messing with the feet straps so that was added rest time, I tried it without using the foot straps and it felt really awkward.
Tabata planks - OUCH my stomach spasmed and just felt like one huge cramp.

pretty impressive, Allen. I've got some way to catch up with you.

Have you tried behind the neck push presses? My O lifting coach just introduced me to them. I'm so tight on the rack position that it helps me a lot. It's harder on the descent because you just can't drop the bar onto your neck so your arms work hard to buffer it.

Thanks for the compliment though I hardly feel impressive at all. I read some comment that anyone in the 180-220# BW range should be able to deadlift 500 with training, that seems like worlds away from where I am now I feel like every time I approach 400 my back starts to hurt. I'm also slow as molasses! I need to run more more more, but I hate it so much that it's like like a mental drag to get it done. Unfortunately it is part of being the Army Reserves.

I have done push presses behind the neck before and I don't like it because of that crashing on my neck thing though I'll do it for heavy OHS's. The front rack position doesn't give me too much of a problem as long as I make sure to keep my wrists neutral.

well, the snail is impressed by the turtle, I guess. Rippetoe's Programming book has the benchmarks in the back. I think at that body weight the level for a novice lifter (he means someone with less than 2-3 years of pretty dedicated lifting) was around 300lbs for deadlift (I may be wrong). I meant more the overall amount you're doing plus the push presses where I have only worked my way up to 130lbs.

Are you doing RDLs to help get your back in shape?

Yes, I was in the Reserves for 13 years or so. Having to pass the PT test was always a good motivator for running, but I would imagine you could easily pass -- you're just trying to max it out.
