SORRY I HAVENT BLOGED IN WHILE 😁 I’ve been very busy but I promise I’ll keep it up these last few days since it max week! I was away on Monday so I haven’t done my new bench max yet but I plan on staying after school one day next week to complete all the things I miss. as for yesterday we did my favourite…cleans I’m really impressed with how much I’ve improved over the semester even tho my numbers are still pretty low. But never the less my clean went from 70lbs to 100lbs THATS UP 30LBS! I’m a little disappointed because I know that I can do 105lbs because that what I got when we did the football maxes so I might try tht again sometime next week too. I also went from being able to 5 push ups (real actual push-ups not the girl ones) to being able to do 20 in a row! Can’t wait to see how much I’ve improved on everything else!

Holly sh*t today’s work out was so hard! But SO GOOD! it was really tough because of having the past two days off but I powered through and did pretty good. I used 65 and it was really light at first but felt pretty light by the end. surprisingly my last round was my best because I really pushed myself even though I was really tired. I did 23 front, 20 back and 40 air and my legs are still shaking! I also came in last period today to do some of y new maxes sine I missed the football work out. now my clean, bench and push press are all up to date and they’ve improved a lot which makes me SO HAPPY!

today’s adaption of Cindy was real tough but I alway like working hard first thing on a Monday morning! 👍 the workout was nice and quick which was good cuz I came in late! it took me 15:38 to finnish! I didn’t spend much time trying to find my pendlay row heaviest weight because I thought the workout would take me way longer than it did so I’ll try and squeeze that in tomorrow. as for the bench press, I haven’t done them in a while cuz I’ve been away the past couple Mondays but after doing them today I can tell I’ve really improved because they were super easy! a lot of my training maxes feel pretty light so I’m gonna try adding five pounds to the precepts given.

Day 61: Thursday, May 8

http://fubarbell.tumblr.com/post/83961727513/the-eyes-set-the-proprioception-for-the-rest-of

STRENGTH:

3 sets of 5 reps of Strict Shoulder Press @ 65%, 75% and 85%
Met-Con WOD:

As Fast As Possible:

20 KB Swings
run around outside of school
20 KB Snatches (10R/10L)
run around outside of school
20 KB Goblet Squats
run around outside of school
20 box jump-overs
FINISHER:

practice Handstand walks
L-sit for max time
max box jump for height

Hate running but loved today’s workout! I liked how quick it was and having more time to work on skills! The lab around the school was by far the hardest and took the longest, mostly because I suck at running. Out of the other four I found the snatch ones the hardest because my right arm is much stronger then my left so it took me the longest. But all and all a fairly easy work out and it only took me 8:31 to complete. After that I tried the L-sits and there was no way I could those so my goal is to be able to hold one for at least three seconds come the end of the year! (hopefully more) So I spent most of the class doing my max box jump. I got as high as 33″ and then it was time to clean up but I think I could go as high as 36″ so hopefully we’ll do some of them another day! Can’t wait to see what you have prepared for Dead Lift Friday!

Day 60: Wednesday, May 7

STRENGTH:

3 sets of 5 reps of Cleans @ 65%, 75% and 85%
3 sets of 5 reps of Squats @ 65%, 75% and 85%
Met-Con WOD:

This is a Partner Workout:

3 rounds of the following:

one person sprints from cone to rocks and back on front lawn
the other partner holds a plank
switch
10 Power Cleans @ 115/65
the other partner holds a 45/25 plate overhead
switch
30 KB Swings
the other partner holds a Deadlift 115/65
switch
When you are finished your 3 rounds, both partners run the St. Mary’s loop with both the KB and the plate you used

Loved today’s work out! LOVED being outside! The cleans we’re obviously the hardest because they took the most effort but I found holding the plate above my head the worst! It wasn’t heavy at all but all the blood was rushing out of my arms and I just couldn’t hold them up! Everything else was pretty much no problem. Running the loop while holding the weight was surprisingly easy, again it just hurt my arms and elbows to be in one position for so long but I got ‘er done! Today also taught me that I like solo work outs way better than partner ones! Looking forward to tomorrow!
