I'm giving this log a break. Workouts are going to be all but non-existent for the following month so I won't bother logging them.

31/12/09 - 01/01/10

Rest


02/01/10

"Fran"
21-15-9

Thruster 45kg
Pull-up
9:58

Couldn't muster out anything resembling intensity. Considering the "nutrition" of the last couple of days I guess I should just be happy about finishing without puking.


03/01/09

Run
"Valdísarleiđin" ~6.0-6.5km
34:55

Pose went right out the window on the first 100m. The ground was uneven and covered with snow, making it hard to concentrate on pose-ing.


04/01/10

Rest.

Today's workout was a huge failure.

Bench Press
5x60kg
5x70kg
5x80kg
5x85kg (then I realized I was only supposed to hit 85kg today, not 87.5kg)
5x82.5kg

AMRAP15
5 Handstand Push-ups
10 Pull-ups
15 Box Jumps 24"
3 rounds + 2 Handstand Push-ups

This workout turned out to be nothing more than a waste of time. Sounds simple enough, though... First round was great. All reps unbroken rather easily. After that, I was lucky to get a single handstand push-up at a time no matter how much I rested. I'll come back to this one for revenge in a month or so.

08/01/10

6 rounds
200m sprint every 90 seconds

Was going to do 8 but only finished 6 rounds and even took extra rest before the sixth. I forgot how my calves react to sprinting like that. I guess I've got to work up to this volume and take a look at my technique (which is easier said than done).

Afterwards I did a bunch of 1.5 pood kettlebell snatches. 50+, probably less than a hundred, though. Technique is pretty solid on my right hand, but my left hand is not quite there yet and has the bell dropping on my forearm every now and then.

Finished up with spotted handstand work. Shoulders are being a bitch. Apparently I've lost some of my already limited shoulder flexibility. I can't stay in a hollow position without leaning forward.

09/01/10

Started with some push jerks, intending to work up to a heavy single before doing "Handstand-Lynne" but when I started to warm up for the push jerks, my calves felt like they were being teared apart. And they've been feeling that way since. Constantly, even when I'm not moving them.

So I bailed.

If things aren't significantly better by tomorrow I'm going to see a doctor.
