So are you just going with one rest day per week? Looks vicious.

Good luck. I look forward to your progress. And welcome to the board.

thanks for the welcom. and yeah one day is fine, I recover fast. im typing this now and I dont feel sore or anything from the workout today, and feel like I could do another session now if I wanted. once in a while I do feel sapped, and then I usally take an extra day or something depending on how bad I feel, but that is very rare.

I was actually just going to ask that. Nice job on the training and best of luck destroying yourself! I look forward to reading how you do it. I can't recover that quickly anymore. I was doing the CA WOD and 5 days a week just ate my lunch.

Default tues. 2.24.09

so to start off let me say that I did not follow my own plan today, in that I am planning on focusing on squating and pulling , basicly a strength cycle if you will. and the classic lifts on tues and thursday are ment to be light form work. that being said I was feeling ambitious so I pushed the classic lifts today and had nothing for the squats. also I posted at the begining that it would be front squat, back squat, front squat tues, thurs, sat, however it was ment to be the other way around... tues:back squat, thrus : front squat, sat: back squat. now that I have said my intro I will post what I did lol.


snatch: 80, 80,80, 80 miss, 80, 80, 80, 80 that one miss was lame, I shouldnt of missed it
clean and jerk: 100, 100, 100 miss, 100, 100 miss, 100 miss I was missing too much so I called it at 6 sets.
back squat: 110X3, 110X3, 110X3, 110X3, 110X3


I was planning on doing 120 on the back squats, but the cleans wiped me out, the original plan was to do 70 on snatch, and 90 on clean and jerk, light enough to focus on form, heavy enough to give me some work, I did more than intended so had nothing left for squats.


all in all im happy with my snatch, had to fight a few of them more than I wanted for form work, thursday I plan on sticking to my original plan.

"tim's attempt to kill himself or make himself better."

Well, which is it? Kill yourself or make yourself better?
Pick one goal and stick with it.
We're goal seeking beings after all.

From the name of my company... you can guess which goal I'm rooting for!

Default wed 2/25/09

rack jerks: 70, 80, 90, 90, 100, 100 miss, 100 miss, 90 (learning to split jerk better)
clean pull: 110X3, 120X3, 130X3, 130X3, 130X3
clean deadlift 140X3, 140X3, 140X3, 140X3, 150x1.5 lol
upright row, 70X5, 70X5, 70X5, 70X5, 70X5

ab roll outs with the 70kg bar: I didnt really count reps, I just went till I couldnt go, and rested a second, then kept going till I felt like I was going to puke

front plank, 3X30 seconds, I couldnt believe how hard this was lol
lateral plank 3X20 seconds.... dont judge me.


over all I felt great coming into today, the deadlifts were a little sloppy on tthe 150 wich is why I didnt really push for that second rep. and the pulls were not as snappy as they probably should of been, I probably could drop the weight a little and stop woring out my ego so much.

cj: 90,90,90,90,90,90,90,90 missed the first 3 as i was attempting to split jerk ( I never split jerk) the rest were spot on with the power jerk.

didnt do any ab work today cause my abs are still sore from yesturday wich im not used to at all so im liking the planks, and roll outs will def do them more often. other than that felt great, felt my form was kick ass on the lifts accept when the pretty girl walked in front of me, and I tryed to split jerk lol.
