Screw it

Posted in back squats, cleans, push-ups with tags , , on January 31, 2012 by coughingsparks

Lousy back squat:

45×3
115×3
125×3
135×3
145×3
155×3

Backslid 10# yet again. I don’t know what to do, so tonight I made pizza from scratch with white flour, chevre and pepperoni. My low-grain diet is not doing anything for me, so why not a cheat meal? Finished with today’s CFNYC WoD, which was a bit of a strange bird: 5 cleans on the minute, plus ring dips for the remainder of the minute for 10 minutes. Well, I can’t do ring dips, so I subbed in regular push-ups, and got 5-3-2-2-4-3-2-2-2-2 with 85# cleans.

Breaking even

DL and Row

Posted in dead lifts, rowing with tags , on January 28, 2012 by coughingsparks

Had a so-so 5×3 DL today, without getting greedy like last time:

45×5
135×3
155×3
175×3
195×3
215×3
225×3

Finished with a really difficult for some reason 2k row at 7:46 almost exactly what I got last time. I feel very sluggish right now though.

Going backwards

Posted in front squats, kettle bells with tags , on January 26, 2012 by coughingsparks

I’m going down on my lifts and I’m not sure why, other than being a little down lately mentally and discouraged and not having the best diet ever recently d/t dental work. So, started with an abysmal front squat:

45×5
95×3
105×3
115×3
125×3
125×3

Finished with a marginal improvement in the 10!:

-KB snatch right 25#
-KB snatch left 25#
-Push-ups (knees)

Managed it in 8:07, about a minute faster than last time, in August, with 20#. Push-ups are still sucky.

So don’t miss

Posted in annie, overhead squats with tags , on January 26, 2012 by coughingsparks

Horrible day today, rushed to get to the gym, started out in a terrible mood, and had a crappy OHS:

45×5
65×5
75×5
75×5

Finished by adding 51 seconds onto Annie, making 14:51:

50-40-30-20-10
-double unders
-sit-ups

Just couldn’t get a good run of DUs except once but mostly it was 2 at a time. Also, because I was missing so much, my arms got all cut up by the rope and I had to wear long sleeves at work so my patients didn’t think I was a self-mutilator. Blergh.

Forgot to update last night

Posted in 20kg cookie, presses with tags , on January 25, 2012 by coughingsparks

Started out yesterday with a lousy 5×5 press:

45×5
65×5
70×5
75×5
80×5
85×5

It was weird, because that’s 5# below what I got last time, but I could barely do it.

Finished with a 20kg Cookie as Rx’d, which is a WoD I made up, 5 rounds for time of:

-10 decline sit-ups with a 45# plate, arms extended
-20 overhead lunges with a 45# plate

Got 13:37, about 25 seconds slower than my fastest time, by no means the worst.

Just a dead lift

Posted in dead lifts with tags on January 22, 2012 by coughingsparks

No time. 5×5 DL, matched last two times:

45×5
135×5
155×5
175×5
195×5
205×5

Meh. No spirit today; hamstrings dead from yesterday. Typing left-handed. Night-night.
