33 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: Workout went well. Took a while to get everything set up as I brought over my new cambered squat bar and was testing things out with it. Made sure it fit in the power rack and checked to see how it would work with chains and bailing at the bottom if need be. Looks like it will be a bit tricky but doable. Box squats were very good, though it felt like the tension on the left side was greater than the right. Had a crazy good idea for the simulated car deadlifts. From the one contest, I felt I was doing better at the lift with getting through the middle point but it seemed the top was still tough, which is something I don't feel with the simulated ones I have been doing. So I thought how about chains. So cut down the weight I was going to use and did them with 110lbs of chains. Works well. A friend suggested a different setup with a more natural feel that I'll have to put some time aside to set it up properly. Belt squats were brutal. I played around with setting up chains for benching between sets so I have an idea of what to do when that lift comes up in the rotation. Abs were sore so the pulldown abs weren't pleasant. Had to rush home and only got to stretching hours later.

October 24, 2010 - Events

Dynamic Warm-ups

Keg Carry/Sled Drag/Prowler Medley
240x60'/260x60'/400x60'/SP+90x60'

2" Handle 18" Frame Picks
280x3
460x3
560x1
640x1
740x0
740x0

Keg Tosses/Sledge Hammer Swings
35x10/15x10/10
35x10/15x15/15

Comments: Didn't do much today. I got there late and they had started a half hour earlier than the time I thought they would. So I was about an hour late to train. I did one medley, which was easy until the prowler part (legs were just dead). Apparently I cut my right hand on one of the kegs. Did some thick handle frame picks but I had to rush. Pissed I missed 740lbs. I've done this weight (370lbs per hand) on farmers with these handles but I guess I forgot about the pick being tougher with a frame, especially the grip when it's wider. Then did some keg tosses supersetted with some sledge hammer swings. Keg toss was good, I felt stupid doing the sledge hammer swings. Didn't feel like I was working anything so I won't do those again. Hips were very sore from the day before from the improved simulated car deadlifts. Guess I'll have to make up for this lackluster training day with this coming weeks serious training.

33 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: Stupid school work kept me from lifting Monday and class on Tuesday meant no lifting as well. So I was understandably eager to lift Wednesday and lucky for me it was my planned training session at Max Fitness. However, the hours have changed for Wednesday for us meatheads (the place is mostly for personal training) is 7pm to 9pm so it was a very short time frame to SFW and meant it was going to be a late night for me. Took a bit of time to get everything setup for sumo platform pulls with chains. Another lifter there wanted to work in with me and I thought, sure, the more the merrier. But he wanted to do conventional style pulls. Not so merry as that involved rolling the bar and moving the chains out to the side. Plus he likes doing plate jumps where as I like plate-quarter-plate jumps as I warm up. His two max attempts took quite a bit of time for him to psyche up and it was already approaching the hour mark. So I was a bit peeved when I got set for the set with 405lbs for having to wait so long so I was pretty happy/amped when I pulled it. Unfortunately the camera was obstructed for the entire lift by another lifter watching me. Guess I have to make the next lift now haha. I did all the sets up to and including 405lbs double overhand. 455lbs was a grinder to lockout. The down set was no picnic either. Moved on to ssb lunges. I was a little wary after how the split squats I did last time had felt but those worries faded away as I did my thing. No mistakes on these reps. I had about 16 minutes left at this point to finish up my workout so I wasn't expecting good things with ghrs and situps. Boy was I wrong about the ghrs though. I did these for the first time a month ago and it was painful and tough to get three sets of 12 with just bodyweight. This time the only set that was tough was the last set after the first eight reps. Just floored to see how much stronger my hamstrings have gotten in the past month. Had to rush the abs so I was not able to rest long enough for the last two sets. I drank about a half gallon of water and a half gallon of watered down Gatorade lifting due to how much I was sweating. Very good session. I have organized my training so that I'm lifting here once a month.

25 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: This was a mess of a workout. My plan was to do viking presses but it was a pain setting it up so that it was "safe". When I got to 315lbs and missed it twice, I just got angry and didn't feel like doing my down set. So I pretended I didn't just do a max effort exercise and did another with the swiss bar and push pressing. Dumb. Feels even more awkward than the log. I know fresh I would have gotten 280lbs. Went on to rack lockouts with a ton of band tension. Just the bar was throwing me around like a rag doll. Some how I managed to do 225lbs for a triple. First set of rows sucked, the other two were better. That's the full stack, going to have to add weight. I started doing gman's but I felt stupified and sat around a bit thinking and then did strict jm presses with light weight. Another late night for me. I need to do some thinking now.
