Alright, man. I'll definitely let you know about the shoes. They're my first pair of lifting shoes, so I'm no expert by any means. I'm excited though because I've been told by a few sources that good weightlifting shoes alone will add weight to my max lifts.

The question on my mind is, why is Geoff getting rid of them?

Were those full snatches or power snatches?

How do your new shoes suit you?

Keep up the good work.

Rest Day

Those were full squat snatches. That was kind of a low max for me. I only had 45's and 10's so I had to jump straight from 135 to 155. I think that screwed with me mentally. I like the shoes a lot. I can feel a little bit more comfort/stability in bottom of the OHS for sure.

Back Squats

45 x 8
135 x 5
185 x 5
225 x 5
265 x 5
275 x 5 x 2

Planche/Front Lever

6 x :08 tuck FL holds
7 x :05 tuck planche holds

tuck planche holds felt really solid today. I'm super setting these with 1:00 rest between them, so I get 2:00 between efforts of the same movement. Once I can hold :10 for each, I'll change one of my weekly PL/FL workouts to dynamic movements.

WOD

5 Rounds for time:
Run 400m
5 Squat Snatches, 115 lbs

13:26

Deadlift

315 x 3
325 x 3
335 x 3

245 x 20

Full ROM HSPU

1 x 3 :07 negatives

I wanted to do 5 sets of these. However, after 1 set I was informed by a staff member at our rec center that they don't allow HSPUs in their facility. I'm going to try to find a way to do these at home on Tuesdays.

WOD

4 Rounds for time:
5 Push Press, 135 lbs
20 Squats

7:47

135 was really too heavy on those PP. I had to rest quite a bit and that really took away the metabolic effect of the workout. 115 or 125 would have been a better choice.

Rest Day

I played around with handstand pirouettes and elbow levers in my kitchen a lot throughout the course of the day.

Great Clean PR Ryan. I have another number to shoot for. Good luck on training.

2/20/09

Planche/Front Lever

6x:

0:06 Tuck PL Hold
Rest 1:00
0:10 Tuck FL hold
Rest 1:00

After this, I attempted a max tuck FL hold and got 0:23

These progressions are starting to feel much better. Hopefully I can start mixing in some dynamic movement 2-3 weeks from now.

Long Metcon

All of this for time:

Start with:
Run 800m

Then:
5 Rounds:
100 Double Unders
30 Pull-ups
30 Push-ups

End with:
25 Burpees

32:17

High rep pull-up workouts at our rec center are awful for 2 reasons. There aren't any good pull-up bars (they all have these uncomfortable rubber grips on them), and I can't use chalk. With a good bar and some chalk, I bet I could go sub 30:00 on this one.
