Started a program I found in Dan John's book "from the ground up"...Lately I've been working on my O-lifts, but nothing really solid as far as programming. I figured this would help me out in the basics. We'll see. I'm slated to go to a martial arts course for the marine corps in August.

Yesterday 20110605

Burg Warmup + CA warmup

Snatch (8 sets of doubles)
95lbs x 8 x 2
Light weight, but my snatch is my weakest..so I'm going go at this slow and by the numbers

Clean & Jerk (8 sets of singles)
185lbs x 8 x 1
may have started to heavy...I was able to hit all 8..but the last 2 were kinda hard. May stay at the same weight on Wed.

Front Squat (5 x 5)
195lbs x 5 x 5

Military Press (3 sets of 5)
155lbs x 3 x 5

Conditioning:

1 mile run
2 rounds:
1000m run
21 swings @ 53lb KB
12 burpees

Yuma was in the 100's as far as temp...kinda crappy on the running

Today 20110708

only 4.5 hrs of sleep.

Baseline:

10 rounds of 1 burpee + 1 handstand pushup

Work Capacity:

Frog Complex (105lbs) (6) reps of squat clean thruster + back squat thruster
10 plyo pushups
400m run

22:40

Strength
3 RM over-head squat

45lbs x 5 95lbs x 3 135lbs x 3

on the last set my right shoulder felt really awkward...I have a pre-existing issue/impingment on that side...so I decided to call it a day.

Was really feeling dehydrated and just overall tired on this one...could be from the workout I did last night and the lack of sleep.

This is the second workout this week where I did the work capacity/metcon before the strength training and just felt beat. Both times I didn't get a lot of sleep beforehand. Also the heat here maybe a factor??? Who knows. Going to have to start programing differently if need be if I can't finish my sessions correctly.
