Been pretty busy for awhile. Now I have time to train. Here's the plan:


Sets x Reps notation

Monday
Back Squat 10x3 (start at 225)
Push Press 5x5 (start @ 140)
False Grip pull-Ups 5x5
Abs/Back


Tuesday
High Hang Clean 3x2(start @ 85%)
Ring Dips 10x5
LSD Run


Wednesday
DL 3x3 (start @ 240)
Weightroom based metcon
(5-10 minutes)


Thursday
OFF


Friday
Press MEx3
Clean Pulls 5x3 (start at 90% of clean 1RM)
Running-based metcon


Saturday
Sprints (1 ea.: 50M, 100M, 200M, 300M)
Front Squat 5x3 (start @ 155)
Abs/Back


Sunday
OFF

Increase weight on Back Squat and Front Squat 10# each week
Increase weight on Deadlift 15# ea week.

The LSD run could anything from several intervals of 800M - several miles

Increase weight on PushPress 5# each week. Should be setting PRs each week on the 3RM press

For the weightroom-based metcon, using movements I'm not already doing Sandbags, kettlebells, jerks, snatches, overhead squats. Medium rep range.
Abs/Back stuff in the medium rep range.

3X10 1 legged DL with 60# DB. Alternated legs

3X10 ab wheel roll outs

3X5 FS 155#

Sprint 50m, 100m, 200m, 300m. Walk the distance back to start for rest.

Wow. I haven't done work like this in awhile and it showed.

Ab wheel roll outs where not on my knees but in the leaning rest position. Fell on my face once. I could not go to full extension.

FS were supposed to be 5X3 but I did not pay attention to detail. I thought my wrists were going to break but they strentched more than they ever have since I broke them. This weight felt fairly heavy to me.

Sprints were interesting. 50-100 was nothing. My legs were cooked from squats and by 200m I was fighting for power. When I got to the last 100m straight on 300m the oh shit switch was flipped.

5X5 Pullups

Because my rings are not here yet

10x3 is hell on wheels.

4.5 mile run in 36min

My legs were already shredded from yesterdays squats.

10X5 bar dips

Because I am sans rings.

3X2 cleans #135.

These ended up being light power cleans due to my developing rhabdo and lack of training on a full squat clean. I am trying to learn how to pull myself under the bar to catch it in the squat.

3X3 Deadlifts #240

My grip failed after one rep on the third set. I stopped and redid that set again.

3 rounds:
30 db #55 swings
30 push ups.

I don't time this kind of stuff anymore. You don't need a stopwatch to know you're putting out.
