Pretty good up until halfway through the run on the 3rd round. All of the sudden I felt like I just got hit by a car.

Feeling quite toasted from "Michael" on Thursday. Perhaps I should have listened to myself and kept to the whole half volume thing for the first month. In any event, I have decided to alternate speed DL w/ heavy DL efforts for my LOD as I have already found it hard to really grind them out heavy at least once every 5-6 days.

LOD:

Speed DL
135x5
185x3
225x2
205x1x15

WOD:

As Rx'd
OHS 5x1
FS 5x1
BS 5x1

As performed:
BS
5x135
3x155
2x175
185x1
205x1
215x1
225x1 (PR by 20lbs)
225x1(Repeat because form was a little shakey, better this time)

Very happy with the PR in BS. I actually met someone at my gym who noticed me doing FS and we started talking. Turns out he used to be a powerlifter and does some strong man stuff now. I mentioned how I was having problems w/ my BS and he offerred to help me out. He understands that I am not going for a PL style BS. It turns out that my problem was (1) I was too afraid to really lean forward which I need to due my particular aglopamofics(SP?) and (2) I was slightly favoring my right side coming out of the hole which is something I just couldn't see when teaching myself. The result, no pain in my right hip (although I could really feel the proper hip drive this time) and a new PR.

6/24/08

Unexpectedly had to travel this week.

Circuit of 5x5 of BS, Chin & Dip, 2 min rest between each exercise.

175# on BS 10# vest on Chin & Dip


It looks like once again I will not be able to make my planned 3/1 or 2/1 schedule. Too bad because it felt like what I was doing would have worked out well. I think I will just move onto the latest 3-day version of the MEBB plan. Very similar to what I am doing.
