Man that is twice lately you have been nauseous. Do you think it could be something you are eating or drinking or not pre-workout. I hope you aren't battling the flu. After being at drill weekend you never know what kind of crap somebody brought with them.

I had coffee about a half hour before hand. I had a cup earlier at 8 and then another one at 9, now I feel like crap again. I was shooting to fit in my workout at lunch time, I'm hoping I feel more normal by then otherwise I might have to skip.

After hte cup at 8 I felt fine but the cup after 9 really put a hurting on me, looks like it's something I'm going to cut back out.

I felt sick basically all of yesterday, not even sick really just feeling like I was on the verge of throwing up, all day long. I only had 2 real meals the entire day. Belching was constant. I'm going to try to avoid the coffee completely today.

2. Technique Practice Total time 9:55
KB crossbody DL - 24kg x 15L/R
KB swing - 24KG x 20
kb reverse lunge - 12kg x 15L/R
pushup - 20

-At home workout today, did the technique practice as RX'ed then threw in some LC stuff, I've been slacking this week with this weird wanting to throw up thing. This part of the week has been way better than the beginning of the week.
-Technique practice - next time if I do this at home I think I'm going to use the same weight but break up the sets so I'm moving a little more rather than doing 1 set of 15-20, do 3 sets of 5-7?
-OALC C+J - The first 4 minutes weren't too bad but the last 2 minutes sucked, I couldn't barely get the bell up on the jerk.

Nice work on the FS. Real nice. Is your knee ok? You really don't need a bad arm and a bum leg ..... The 24 KG OALCCJ is super solid. You are progressing very nicely. I am going to need to switch to the 20 KG bell if I am going to stay close to you.

Nice. You've got some Cressey influence on your training. I like what he writes. He's one of the better contributors at T-Mag.

Makes more sense than guys like Thibadeau, and lately Poliquin.

It's been achy since Friday, not like PAIN PAIN, but pain, know what I mean? I could feel it in there playing some soccer with Hunter this weekend. Kneeling down was painful as well. I'll see how it feels today. At least this is supposed to be a deload week so only 3 sets of 3 for BS and a few sets of everything else.

I was pretty surprised with the 24KG for OALC-CJ, I think just a few weeks ago getting 6? was a struggle to finish out a minute and I was able to get 9/8/6 and the 3rd minute was hard though, I had to attempt a few times to get the last jerk in.

I like most of what he writes, has a good blog and if I had the $ I'd pony up the money for more of his products. The book is great and I'm lucky I was able to find it at the library.
