Resting today...

This mornings phone call just made my life a lot more stressful and I have to fix everything directly through the VA.



I'll be taking my frustration out on 10oz of Teriyaki Steak and fried rice.

1/30

Power SN:
95# x 5

Deadlift:
135 x 5 x 2
185 x 5
225 x 2

245 x 3
285 x 3
315 x 3
345 x 3

Rowing: teams of 3 for 10 min etc.

I think that's a DL PR, and that was easy.

My entire backside from the back of my knees to my traps is just pain. I'll post more about it later.

2/1

BS:
225 x3
255 x 3
285 x 2
305 x f
295 x f
290 x 1

HPSN:
85 x 3
105 x 3
115 x 2
135 x 1
140 x 1
140 x 1

AMRAP in 12 min:

12 KB swings 1 pood
12 wall ball shots

got 6 rounds

hmm, I'm still a little undecided about the gym. I got slightly pissed off after being criticized for using 1 pood instead of 1.5 poods and criticized for certain things in my olympic lifting form.

It is in my own opinion that I know my own body and my own recovery capabilities hence why I chose the 35 lbs kb, a 53 lbs kb would have meant slop form and a very painful back which would affect me later on during the week ( i know this because it's happened before) . A weak back is not good for lifting heavy especially since I have Olympic lifts planned for this week. And besides, I don't believe in going balls to the wall in metcon to the point of throwing up or laying on the ground for 10 minutes.

This rant is probably unfair, the atmosphere just kind of bothered me.

You can get VERY good conditioning by not killing yourself at every workout.

Anyways, to add more to this because I don't have a life outside of school and the gym:

- My strength overall feels way up
- My weight is up and I feel just like I did in the early fall
- I think I will head back to 5/3/1
- I wanted to join the Cf gym to have a little more openness in training environment and be around people that might train like me because I don't have a training partner right now ( my original partner has been in and out of surgery and lives in spartanburg), but I guess it just does not feel right. CF is just not my thing anymore I guess.

I rant way too much

Alright.. I think i'm going to cancel and just get back to what I was doing before the surgery 5/3/1 plus some O-lifting. I just can't get the motivation for xfit and prefer programming my own stuff now.
