Back to back

Posted in back squats, box jumps, burpees, christine, cleans, dead lifts, fran, jerk, kettle bells, rowing, snatches, wall ball on May 26, 2017 by coughingsparks

Tuesday I went to the gym late in the day, which I don’t usually do. First was Christine, 3 RFT:

-500m row
-21 BW DL (208#)
-21 box jumps

This took forever, 31:33. I don’t think it was supposed to take that long, but I pulled those reps one at a time and it took a while.

Following that, I was supposed to have done 20-minute EMOM, another “stamina:”

-Even: 12-calorie row
-Odd: 15 wall balls

I made it through eight minutes of this and then stopped. I think this was supposed to be one of those days that’s divided, but obviously that’s not practical most days.

Wednesday: I went back the following morning, which didn’t go very well, but at least the lifts were light:

1.) Power clean: 110x3x3
2.) Clean pull: 125x3x3
3.) Back squat: 130x3x3
4.) Fran: 21-15-9
-Thrusters 65#
-Pull-ups

This was about my slowest Fran ever, almost doubling my time at 15:31. Again, doing the pull-ups one at a time.

Today was:

1.) Snatch:
60×2
65×2
70×2
75x2x2

2.) Clean and Jerk:
95×2
100×2
110×2
115x2x2

3.) Front squat: 115x3x5

4.) 4 RFT:
-15 calorie row (was supposed to be the Airdyne, but they were all in use)
-18 wall balls
-15 KB swings 35#
-12 Burpees

This went better than I thought it would, at 15:53. Finished up with mobility.

Today I started with the CFP workout, which was 15-minute AMRAP, 4 rounds, in one-minute increments:

-1 minute box jumps
-1 minute burpees
-1 minute V-ups (suitcases)
-1 minute rest

I got 50, 51, 52, 52, pretty consistent. Then I did some Bergeron stuff from today, but didn’t have time for all of it, so I did the snatch:

65×3
70×3
75×2
75×2
80×1
80×1
85×1

Next was the clean and jerk:

100×3
110×3
115×3
125×3
130×2
135×1
135×1
135×1

Wednesday

Yesterday was:

1.) Hang clean:
95×4
100×4
110×4
115x3x3

2.) Hang clean pull:
125×5
130x5x4

3.) FS:
140×5
145×1
140×5
150×1
140×5
155×1

The set of 5 I could barely do on the front squats, but I managed.

4.) EMOM 16:

-12 front racked KB lunges 12kg
-12 (8) push-ups
-12 Box step ups with 12kg KB
-50-second plank hold on elbows

This was pretty awful feeling. It was supposed to be 35# and 30# respectively, as well as 12 push-ups, but it devolved pretty quickly into 8. But again, I did it, so there you have it.

Ben Bergeron is trying to kill me.

Posted in cleans, front squats, pull-ups, renaissance periodization, rowing, thrusters on May 11, 2017 by coughingsparks

Yesterday was Day 2 of #builtbybergeron, this time was four things:

1.) Hang squat cleans from mid-thigh(ish):
-60% x 4 = 95#
-65% x 4 = 100#
-70% x 4 x 3 = 110#

This went fairly well: light enough weight to be able to focus on form.

2.) Clean pull from hang or mid-thigh-ish:
-70% x 5 = 110#
-75% x 5 = 115#
-80% x 5 x 3 = 125#

Again, pretty good.

3.) Front squat:
-77% x 5 = 135#
-83% x 1 = 145#
-77% x 5 = 135#
-85% x 1 = 150#
-77% x 5 = 135#
-87% x 1 = 155#

I’ve never done this rep scheme before and it was sucktacular, like very, very hard. I did it. I didn’t dump, but it was a close run thing.

4.) Metcon: 13-minute AMRAP:
-55 cal row
-55 thrusters 65#
-55 pull-ups
-55 HSPU

This went about as I expected, did well on the row and then was doing the thrusters in sets of 5. As one might imagine, by the time I got to the pull-up bar, I had something like 75 – 90 seconds left, so I only got 6 pull-ups, which means a score of 116. Good, is what I’m supposed to say: gives me something else to get better at.

In any event, everything is sore today. My midsection is completely wrecked from the 90 GHDs after not doing them for about a year, like it hurts to sneeze. My quads are destroyed. It hurts to flex or extend my arms. Also, I may not be eating enough to compensate for the increase in volume. I’m still eating like I’m doing a light day, which this^^^ definitely is not. I purchased and downloaded the new RP cutting templates, so we’ll see how that goes. Back tomorrow though.

Wednesday, Today

Posted in back squats, box jumps, cleans, competition, double unders, knees-to-elbows on January 20, 2017 by coughingsparks

Wednesday was 20 minutes to complete 3×7 back squat at 70%, which was 155#, interspersed with 12 HSPU (push-ups) and 12 pull-ups (RR). The WoD was a 5-minute AMRAP:

-10 box jump overs
-5 kipping pull-ups (RR)

I was fairly slow on this, and don’t remember what I got, maybe five rounds? I have to do box overs pretty slowly as a rule on account of my crappy knees, so it’s never quick…

Today was a repeat of 16.2, which I did as prescribed last year and scaled this year, one of those exploding AMRAPs that if you make it through the first set in under four minutes, you go onto the next, if you make it in less than eight minutes, onto the next:

-25 TTB
-50 DU
-15 Squat cleans (135/85/55)

-25 TTB
-50 DU
-13 Squat cleans (185#/115#/75#)

…11 squat cleans 95#
…9 squat cleans 115#
…7 squat cleans 135#

I did all the scaling, KTC, 1:1 single unders, and made it all the way up to 135# and got through 3 of those, which was actually much harder than the Rx would have been because I only got 77 last time and I got 4+78 this time, which turned out to be a 20-minute, increasingly heavy AMRAP.

Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday

Posted in box jumps, burpees, cleans, dead lifts, double unders, knees-to-elbows, pull-ups, push-ups, snatches, wall ball on January 3, 2017 by coughingsparks

Friday: 0:00 – 8:00: AMRAP:

-8 HSPU (push-ups)
-10 Squat snatch (115/85)
-15 box jumps

8:00 – 15:00: establish 1RM snatch

I don’t remember what I got for the first one, five and something maybe with 55#. I did meet my snatch PR at 115#, but of course it was a power snatch.

Saturday: 22-minute relay-style partner AMRAP:

-8 bar-over burpees
-6 front racked lunges 135/95
-4 muscle ups

We did it with 65# and regular pull-ups (or jumping pull-ups) and got 10 plus something.

Monday: Squat clean, which was 150# and then 6-minute AMRAP:

25 bar-facing burpee buy in and then:
-4 DL at clean weight
-40 DU

Did 20 DU and got 2 plus something. It was slow, it was the slowest in class.

Today: 15-minute AMRAP:

-5 squat snatch (185/125)
-10 TTB
-15 Wall ball

I started at 55 and had to drop to 35, unfortunately and did KTC and got 6 plus something.
