Sarena,
Will post plenty of pics of all of the stuff I've recently built for the gym, absolutely including the platform.

I got the adidas Ironwork II shoes. I like them so far, then again, I have nothing to compare them to other than cross-trainers or barefoot.

What can I say...while I love my Nike Frees, adidas truly has my heart! Three stripes forever!

Did nothing yesterday.

Did yesterday's CA WOD today:

Snatch (70% x 1 x 4): 50kg x 1 x 4
Clean & Jerk (70% x 1 x 4): 74kg x 1 x 4, did push jerks

Lowered all weights to knee level, didn't drop them today.

Itching to do Helen later, since I missed all metcons in the last two days!

Did yesterday's 100% attempts today. Important note--these were done with my new holiday presents, OL shoes and the adidas OL pants from Dynamic-Eleiko...

Snatch: 75kg PR (+6kg!)
C&J: 97.5kg PR (+6kg!), will break the 100kg mark next time!
Front Squat: 124kg (old max FS estimated at ~111kg, so an approx. 13kg PR!)

Happy Day! Glad I didn't do any extra metcon in the last couple days, even though I planned to.

It's gotta be 'da shoes...or maybe even the new platform! Who knows?

Those are some excellent PRs. OL shoes are pretty great, aren't they?

Chris, OL shoes are pretty cool, especially with the PRs! I can't wait to try back squatting and deadlifting in them.

I don't know that I've ever max front squatted before--the heel lift in the OL shoes really makes a difference in being able to keep the torso vertical.

Today: Rest. I earned it with the PRs, IMO! I may do some joint mobility at lunchtime.

FYI, for those who read this workout log, I have decided for many reasons to drastically reduce my time on message boards as I need to work on my soon-to-launch CF gym and other recent major responsibilities that have arisen (I'll tell you about them later). The only forum activity I'll be engaging in will be here in my training log and entering (mostly) the same entry in the "Comments" section. If you would like to solicit my biased opinion, *cough* *cough*, either put a link to the thread here in my log or PM me.

Still one day behind.

AM: 2.5 mile hilly walk with the parents

Noon, Friday's CA WOD:

~1 minute rest between exercises and sets
Snatch push press + overhead squat + snatch balance – light x 2 x 4: 29kg x 2 x 4, stayed really light, set up complex with a power snatch
Snatch – 70% x 1 x 5: 52.5kg x 1 x 5
Clean & Jerk – 70% x 1 x 5: 66.5kg x 1 x 5

Nice and easy workout. Tomorrow (ie. today's WOD) should be interesting considering the recent increase in my 100% numbers!

You are an animal! Congratulations on the new PR's.

Thanks Chris and Derek!

CA WOD from yesterday, done today 1/6/07:

Snatch (90% x 1 x 3): 67.5kg x 1 x 2, 70 x 1 x 1, did the last set heavier as I had started loading for the C&J too soon, so I did the heavier weight anyway.
Clean & Jerk (90% x 1 x 3): 86.5kg x 1 x 3, may have accidentally done it 4 times
Front Squat (90% x 2 x 2): 106.5kg x 2 x 2, accidentally used 15kg bar so under 90% by 5 kg (actually 86%), but man those feel good!

So my lifting was okay, my patience and my counting need some work though...

Metcon, 4 rounds for time of:
MODIFIED 50m out, 50m back shuttle run
12 kipping pullups
MODIFIED 5 inseam height hurdle tuck jumps
MODIFIED 50 high knee rope jumps
8 push presses with 35# (20%BW) DBs
13:28

I didn't get to do the box jumps earlier in the week and I haven't jumped rope in a long time, so I subbed for the second 50m run. Back on schedule for tomorrow!

8am, today's CA WOD OL segment:

Definitely noticed a lack of "juice" in the heavy lifting today, should not have done the tuck jumps yesterday. Hindsight is 20/20, dontcha' know!

Joint mobility + extended Burgener warmup with pipe, then 15kg bar

Snatch (90% x 1 x 3): 67.5kg x 1 x 3, pressed out the last one something fierce, even though it was ugly I was proud of saving it
Clean & Jerk (90% x 1 x 3): 86.5kg x 1 x 3, cleans were caught low, jerks felt pretty good
Front Squat (90% x 2 x 2): 111.5 x 2 x 2

1pm, CA WOD metcon:

Taking it easy, to give my body a quick chance to catch its breath after two 90% days in a row now...

5 rounds (low end of Rx'd 5-8 rounds) for time of
5 (32%BW) 53# KB swings
5 kipping pullups
5 L, 5 R (25%BW Rx'd, went lighter) 35# KB cross-chops
5 clapping pushups
5:57
