Training Log: Entry 2449


PM WORKOUT

40 minutes of snow shoveling and sledgehammering w/45lb weighted vest

Just getting slammed with snow, and now the ice has built up enough that I needed to break out the sledge.  My right shoulder is just about done too; need to take a break and do some real training instead.

Woke up at 198.6.

AM WORKOUT

40 minutes shoveling snow with 45lb vest

PM workout

15 minute circuit of the following

Stone of steel over (20 bar w/50lbs loaded for a double
250+ sandbag pick up and carry
225lb powerstairs for a double
182lb keg pick up and carry

A full 5 rounds and the doubles of stone before time expired. 

Notes: Did much better compared to the last time.  Made it through the full 5 rounds and a double of stone of steel.  Technique was much better, although I didn't realize the camera was moving so much with every stone rep.  Lost a LOT of time on that round 4 sandbag; my fingers tend to not want to grip any more at that point.

No weigh in this morning.

Notes: First post deload deadlift workout.  Things felt heavy, but the strength was there.  Glute and shoulder blade held up.  Really didn't have anything in me for benching today, so I set conservative goals and met them.  Still got a decent chest pump.  Kept the assistance volume low just to get back into it.

Woke up at 196.2.  Everyone in my house is sick, so I may be due soon.

AM WORKOUT

Giant sets

Log viper and press away 190
8x5

SSB squat 225
8x10

Circus dumbbell clean and press (per arm)
4x1x115
4x1x110

Band pull aparts
5x20

Kroc rows 105
1x25

Notes: For the method to my madness, first cycle I used First Set Last for pressing, second was second set last, now I'm trying to be really stupid and do last set last.  I'll see how well it holds up.  Took the weight down on the squats because I'm really trying to get in some more volume.  Completely lost my touch with the CDB after a week off; need to get in more reps.  Cut out the back work on the circuit so I could push it heavier on the mainwork, and went with kroc rows as a finisher.  Did no straps so I could get some grip work out of it.

Weighed in a 196.2.  Right shoulder blade nerve pinch is still a little touchy, but manageable.

Got the day off work, so you know what that means; 2 a days!

AM WORKOUT

Shoveling snow while wearing a 45lb vest for 40 minutes

PM WORKOUT

As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of the following

Stone of steel over (20) bar w/50lbs loaded
250+sandbag pick up and carry across garage
225lb powerstair doubles
182lb keg carry across garage

Managed 5 rounds with 2 seconds left

Notes: The SoS was a disaster.  I think the -20 degree days have dried out my skin and made the stone slick.  I have a tacky towel but want to avoid using it in training.  Took a few rounds to get a feel for it again.  Everything else was pretty heavy and rough.  I don't have a degree in doctorology, but I guess those 65 deadlifts may have played a factor.

Woke up at 198.6.  Feeling like I might have a touch of whatever is going around these days, but more an annoyance than anything else.

AM WORKOUT 

Standing ab wheel
4x8

Texas deadlift bar touch and go deadlifts
5x135
5x205
5x275
65x308 in 11 minutes

https://youtu.be/rFcDFWUe7Cs

Notes: Did this as the 20k challenge that was posted.  Solid effort, good for a deload week.  Original goal was 40 in one go, but I realized I could get 40 in one go OR 65 total reps but not both.  Good amount of fatigue when it was over.

Woke up at 196.6.  Cheat meal yesterday of 3 items and fried rice at Panda.  Shoveled snow for an hour that day too.

Notes: Was still dealing with some glute pain, and around the 370 set of the squats, in between sets, I took a  breath and pinched a nerve in my upperback, so I was a bit of a wreck for this workout.  More just hung on for as long as I could rather than push for anything big.  I'm feeling a little better, but a deload is going to be good for me.

Woke up at 197.8.  Took video and will upload later.  This was yesterday; have been without internet for a bit.
