Training Log: Entry 2392


PM workout

Prowler (high handles)
6x60' w/180lbs loaded
6x60' a/90lbs loaded

Notes: 30 seconds rest between sprints.  I'm out of shape after so much time away from heavy conditioning, but that comes back quick.  Figured this will help my knee be less stupid.

Woke up at 193.0.

Training Log: Entry 2391

AM WORKOUT (Realized I wasn't documenting what workouts I was on for this cycle, but whatever)

Axle deadlifts (touch and go)
5x136
5x226
1x276
5x366
5x416
5x471
5x10x366

Superset w/

Dips
10x20

Band pull aparts
1x50

Notes: Last cycle, I thought I was going to throw up during this workout because I had been traveling all day and eating weird food.  This time, I found out it's because this workout eats my soul.  Just plain tough. Did touch and go this time since wife was sleeping upstairs, but it's still a different kind of suck anyway.  Kept assistance work light; may come back later for more.

Woke up at 191.0.  Should finally be able to stay home for at least a month or so, so time to rebuild.  Also, ordered a Titan 12" log and it's supposed to be here on Tuesday, so that's pretty cool.

Also, yesterday marked 2 years since my knee surgery.  Man how the time flies.

Training Log: Entry 2389


I've done 3 workouts in 20 hours now, as I'm returning from vacation and leaving on business tomorrow.  Will get my bench workout done tomorrow morning, meaning getting a weeks' worth of training done in 36 hours.  For the sake of brevity, I'm just logging highlights, but these were all full workouts

7xBW


SATURDAY AFTERNOON

Buffalo Bar Squats
5x370
18x285

Notes: Knee was feeling great all vacation, and then felt achy on my flight back home.  Wondering if elevation is the issue.  Focusing on a lower bar position goes a long way.  Those deadlifts killed me.  Knee kept buckling.

Woke up at 190.0.  I expect to lose more weight during my trip.  Holiday season should bode well.

Vacation Update:

Beat the "Over the Top" Arcade armwrestling game at the hardest difficulty.  That was pretty cool.  It beat me back in High School, so this was revenge.

Wife took some photos of me on the beach.



I like how lean I am these days, but always want more size.

Training Log: Entry 2388

Did 100 burpees in 8:45 2 days ago. 

Today

20 push ups, every minute on the minute for 50 minutes

Notes: Yes, that is in fact 1000 push-ups.  Do I know how to deload or what?  This was one of those Forest Gump sorta moments, where I set out to do 10 minutes, and that felt good, so I did 20, and at that point figured I'd do 500, and once I got there, figured 1000 was within reach.  Right around 900 is when it started getting challenging, as up until then it was taking me 15 seconds to complete sets, and at that point it went to 20, and the final set took 45.  I'll see how I feel over the next few days, and if I don't get rhabdomyolysis, I might do this again sometime.

Took a photo of the chest pump.  Wasn't quite "unreal", but still very solid.

Notes: Sprained my pec tendon on the second set of 5x5x285.  Hit the j-hook on the eccentric of the 3rd or 4th rep on the right side and shifted all the weight to the left.  It's achy, but I was able to finish the workout, and with a deload coming up I imagine it'll heal well.  Might just do a lot of push-ups to get blood flowing.  Otherwise, this was a great workout, and another day where I just felt strong.  The first cycle is done, and I'm a big fan of this program.  Excited to run it some more with a higher TM.

Woke up at 194.8.  Think I've lost the sodium from the weekend.
