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.
