Default I'm over here now--Tim's log

Well, been keeping my log over at crossfit, but not posting there otherwise. In the past few months, my Internet time has become more dedicated to music, as my passion for playing drums (jazz mostly) has been reignited. Fitness is very important to me, but music really makes me tick

The core of my programming revolves around my own bastardized version of EDT. Basically, these workouts consist of relatively heavy couplets (squat/press for instance) done every minute for 10-20 minutes. Sometimes I just do one exercise in a session.

This is my answer to the need for a more "intelligent," heavier WOD. These workouts allow me to lift pretty heavy weight, and there is a nice little conditioning effect to go along with it.

In addition, I like to mix in interval training, sandbags, rowing, and all kinds of other shitI can't thinkl of right now . Not training for a sport right at the moment. All that's on hold until our 2-month-old gets a little bigger.

My old log is here: http://www.board.crossfit.com/showth...highlight=luby

Default 5/28 squat/press EDT

Every minute for 10 minutes:

Squat 275x1
Press 155x5x1 (1st 5 sets) 135x5x2 (2nd 5 sets)

Pressed 155# for the 1st 5 minutes, then had to switch it up. Still trying to get my groove back with the presses [as well as all the other upper body stuff)

Default 5/29 pull-up/ring dip EDT

3 pull-ups
5 Ring dips

Felt pretty good. Definitely improving. Last time I was struggling by the 7th round (out of 10 rounds). This time I was pretty solid throughout.

Followed by:

11 rounds of tabata heavy bag

Default 6/1 EDT C&J/push-ups

EDT C&J

Every minute for 11 minutes:

Hang power clean and jerk 155x3

Felt good. Actually did 155x5 on the first set by accident


EDT push-ups


10 push-ups every 30 seconds for 5 rounds

This is practically a tabata! Got a little tough toward the end, but banged them all out straight. Haven't every done EDT with v30 second intervals. I'll explore this more in the future.

That sandbag shoulder looks fun. Do you do it by alternating shoulders?

Default 6/8-6/10

6/8-9

Rest

Ugh--dug myself into a hole for this week. Now I gotta go 5 days in a row.

6/10

Power C&J AMRAP in 20 minutes

185x26

I think my previous record on this was 20 reps or something (maybe 22?). In any case, this smashes it!

I see this workout as more of a "test" of the EDT stuff I do--not something to be done very often.
