3/2

Snatch: 40kg x 3 x 3

WOD: Deadlift 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 1

245 - 265 - 285 - 300 - 320 - 340 (PR) - 360 (PR)

Very good day. 360 at a body weight of 145lbs.

Previous DL Pr was 332 at 150lbs.

If you count the collars which are about 1 lbs each thats 362 which is near 2.5 x BW (362.5)

Rest day.

Eating good food and focusing on school work and then some.

You know what I noticed about myself? I think I tend to come off as a dick on the Cf forums and can't say that I don't like it. Just get annoyed of some of the crap on there yet i keep going back... hmm

That's a common malady concerning those boards. i realize I was headed for a ban eventually and just stay away now.

Nice DL PR by the way.

Thanks, im gonna try and be nice to test my patience we'll see how long that lasts.

Anyways, I ended up doing Barbara today. So much for the rest day, I just needed to blow some steam off as my manager is telling me she is going to fire me unless I am available more hours and im already stretched thin enough as it is. Gave her my remaining availability... that's a time bomb waiting to go off.

Barbara

Rnds 1 and 2 Rx'd, the rest scaled to 1/2 including rest time scaled to 1:30

1. 2:52
2. 6:10
3. 2:43
4. 2:01
5. 1:31

Situps gave me the most trouble on rnd 2. It was pretty interesting however how much better I performed and how much more recovered I felt after scaling.

You know what else is odd? Im starting to really like my instructors at the PT program, despite some differences in opinion they actually are very good at what they do... maybe it's the odd amount of support I've gotten from them recently concerning CF and a number of other things. Weird how opinion can change suddenly.

3-5

So today is my 22nd Birthday and this week had started out a little shitty due to the fact that I'm about to lose my job but stuff like that just gives me much more motivation to go hard during training and despite shitty sleep last night and shitty diet I hit PR's today.

WU: SN drills

Strength:

BS (HB): 225 (PR) x 5 x 3

C&J: 40 - 50 - 54 (PR) - 56 (PR) - 60 (PR) - 66 (F) - 66 (PR)

RDL: 60 x 8 , 66 x 8 , 70 x 8 (all in kg)

225 was done HBBS and I changed my grip to thumbs wrapped around with the bar a little higher on my traps. I've noticed that I have been able to generate greater power through the HB style, I was able to comfortably bounce out of the hole on each rep.

3-6

OHS: 40 x 3 x 2 , 42 x 3 x 2

SN PP: 40 x 5 x 3

SN Pull: 50 x 3 x 3

Weighted Chins: 3 x 10 (10, 15, 15lbs)

Good workout, starting to find the areas that need more focus and starting to figure out which direction to take programing too.

Taking the weekend off.

Fasting 15 hours today.

Ok so I want to hit a 400lbs dead in 6 months.

And i'd like to hit a 300lbs Squat in 6 months.

And a BW Press in 6 months.

Going to work hard to achieve this while improving the O-lifts more because now that my O-lifts are getting better all I want to do is Snatch and Clean & Jerk.


Im also working on my next project which is remodeling the gym in the basement and budgeting for equipment. Have the list written out, need to check out the room and see what can be done. This will be my summer project, planning to build a platform, pullups and dip station, a mount for rings and some other stuff.

So I think the past few workout's I've pretty much made up my mind to focus solely on the Olympic Lifts.

Using Gregs Beginners Program till I find out what's happening in April

Worked up to a heavy single then dropped to 85% for 3 singles.

C&J: 40, 44, 46, 50, 52, 44 x 1 x 3

SN: 40, 42 , 44 , 46 , 50 , 42 x 1 x 3

Pullups: 3 x 10 + 10lbs

Hanging Leg Raises: 3 x 10

Tried lifting today but did not have it in me, just feel like sleeping.

Woke up to 140lbs this morning, pretty pissed about that. I've lost too much weight since the semester started due to all the running around and stress. So Im going to make sure I get plenty of food in to gain back some weight.

Im hoping tomorrow I'll feel better to lift.

not much of a workout today, kind of felt like crap. The gyms equipment sucks too as there was no Oly bar to use which made it impossible to hold the grip. That and im tired from this long ass week.

FS: 185 x 3 x 3

SN DL: 185 x 2 x 1

PP: 95 x 5 , 115 x 5
