nice work there robb. lifting heavy in your new dojo. does it get any better than that? ya know...workoutwise i mean.
Robb Wolf 2008-11-03
Ken-
It's fantastic. But...The person spotting me is a large, hairy dude. If it were nude dancing girls...now, now we are talking.

robb

capital idea for sure but i would suggest you save the nude dancing girls for spotting your bench press. but hey, that's just me.
Ed 2008-11-04
Folks, a question. The percentage listed before the exercise equates to body weight???
Today is 55% clean so a bit over half of my total weight? Thanks and good job Robb! I met you at the Oly class recently. Nice gym and great people!


Jesse Woody 2008-11-04
No, the percentages relate to your max lifts, so it would be 55% of your max-clean

Ken-
GENIUS!
Leonid S. 2008-11-04
Ken - that's a great idea, but better yet if they'd be stretching you out after a wod!

Robb - solid squatting! How's your olympic lifting cycle going?
Robb Wolf 2008-11-04
Leo-
My knees fracking hurt! I'm switching things up and working mainly power and split variants for a while...maybe 1/10 I will hit squat variants. When I do this, the knees feel fine and I'm still making progress.

M.Sn.+Sn.Bal. 80%(M.Sn.) x 2sets - 63.5kg

Thanks Jesse!

Knee still not better since yesterday, I've decided to take some days off.

Frustrating because I don't know exactly what caused the pain. I'm considering something similar as Robb Wolf outlined here if these knees pains don't stop.

Horrible day at work. Only one egg, one protein shake and one cuppa joe since waking. Way too low on my energy needs and my attitude sucked, but I gave it a shot.

MS: up to 125# x1
Tall Cl + MH Cl + 2 J: 120# x3 sets
20 Burpees and 20 KPU: 2:30 and bailed

Time to eat!
