ok so have to revise things a bit. This fellowship is more demanding than I thought and I can no longer spend 2 hours in the gym. In addition, I got the below email response to my request for bumper plates:

I wanted to quickly follow up to your email regarding your inquiry of bumper plates for the free weight area. At this time, we do not allow Olympic lifting in the facility due to the safety risk for not only the person doing the lift (if it is done improperly), but also the surrounding members - this is the same policy as the Gables Wellness Center has. I'm sorry if this conflicts with your workout style, but hope you can find something similar to receive the same benefit. If you have any questions, feel free to talk to any of our Wellness Coaches on the fitness floor.

I need to get my legs stronger anyway, so I'm doing MEBB style for a bit until I figure something out. Basically the same program as I was doing, but no oly. Sucks.

Straight nonsense my friend. What, exactly, is going to give you the same benefits of Olympic lifting while being "safe"? Extreme treadmilling? As your attorney, I advise you to find this guy and bench press him until enough change falls out of this pockets for you to buy your own bumpers.

tried something different today -- 20 rep squats. Heard they were great and I was a little sick of doing regular BS. Wasn't sure what weight to use, so did 60kg. Actually went ok but holy sh*t it took me 30 minutes to feel normal. Might try that for a while. Supposed to go up 5lbs each time until you are doing your old 5 RM for 20 reps. Wow...


20 rep squats 60kg
weighted Pullups 5-5-5-3-3-3 65 DB max for 3

metcon
600m row, 15 K2E 15 dips
300m row, 12 K2E, 12 dips
150m row 9 K2E, 9 dips

think i need to get into some heavier metcons. These basically feel like the regualr crossfit ones but scaled in length. Not sure i'm getting the same benefits as I would from heavier metcons.
