1/22

BS:
45 x 5 x 2
80 x 5
120 x 3
160 x 2
205 x 5 x 3 (last set 13 reps)

OHP:
45 x 5 x 2
55 x 5
70 x 3
85 x 2
105 x 5 x 3

Pull-ups:
15# x 5 x 3

157# BW this morning, nice surprise, gave a boost to my motivation.

Wether people like it or disagree with it, I've actually been going for rep PR's on the last set of squats, bench and press's for the last 3 weeks. I have not been logging them on here though.

But i'll quickly jot down what reps I did for the last several workouts:

1/15 BS 175 x 12, BP 115 x 15

1/18 BS 185 x 10, OHP 100 x 10

1/20 BS 195 x 8, BP 125 x 17

1/22 BS 205 x 13

I'll probably get more conservative as the weight gets heavier but I find it's good for motivation and has probably helped keep weight on, I've also found myself actually getting stronger the heavier the weight gets.

Kinda so-so day, my workout did go by quick I was in and out in around 45 minutes, squats felt strong and deads were actually better today then all previous days but my bench just did not feel right, felt REAL heavy but I've been having issues benching since the start, really feels like a combination of form and not enough strength.

I think I should pay more attention to what I eat too... body comp is a little bad in the midsection, too many mcdoubles lately.

1/27

BS:
45 x 5 x 2
95 x 5
135 x 3
185 x 2
225 x 5 x 3

That was it for today, my back felt odd so I backed off from everything else.

I joined a CF gym... new one down the road, programing geared towards strength and I can do olympic lifts so thats good so there will be a slight change in priorities but the goals remain the same, but someone will be helping me get all my lifts back up and my bodyweight up and I can do some conditioning because I will need it eventually.

It only took 4 years to find a place where I fit in that is not gay...

There I edited it.

I wouldn't flaunt that you're fitting in at a cf gym. There's still a bit of backlash going on around here. That's good though if it's a legit place.

Yeah thats true, but there is also support here for affiliates that do their own smart programming and don't get on their knees and open their mouths every second for couch.

What I like about the place so far is they gear their programming based on Catalyst athletics and the black box summit and the trainers are actually "experienced" i.e. one guy has a powerlifting background, the other have long term personal trainer backgrounds, and they are bringing in a USA Weightlifting Coach to teach people the Olympic lifts.

You will not find any main page specific things there which I find rare amongst affiliates these days, it's a lot like Melissa Byers place.

I would not have bothered joining the place if they did not have backgrounds or people like that.

So basically they're CF in name only. The way it should be.

Yeah, I guess the biggest reason is for the Olympic lifting and being arround some others that are into it.

They are gonna help me build my strength up and get me at a heavier body weight (already tipping 160) so I know they put strength as a priority.

1/28

Warm-up:
Run 400m/Sprint 200m/Run 400m/Sprint 200m
3 rnds:
10 Toe Touches
10 "star-bursts" (gay)
10 box jumps 20"

WOD: 5 Rounds
Row 500M
95# Thrusters, 7
20:08

Rest 10 min
Tabata Row for 7 min w/ damper set to 10 and rower elevated 12"

rested a few then did 5 x 3 Press @ 110# felt light as fudge... (that was my own thing)

Everything unbroken, I took it slightly easy otherwise I may have gotten a much better time, I went light on thrusters and I prob could have went to 115.



Verdict? Not bad, I don't feel too exhausted but I also did the squats yesterday so yeah

Sprints/Intervals/Rowing/Thrusters are my favorite conditioning drills anyways. What do you guys think?

Are they programming specifically for you? Or are you just doing what everyone else does?

It was their programming for everyone.

I'm slightly tempted to trust it, they have a lot of guys pushing 1000 CFT's
