310813 – Work weekend

Image

Passed my test. I’m running on 8 hours of sleep over the last 48 hours so I’m not expecting too much out of my weights. But, no reason not to go hard!

1) 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Snatch

2) 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Clean & Jerk

Strength

15 minutes to establish a 3RM Front Squat

Me:
As I suspected, today was a very unproductive day. All my lifts felt like garbage. But, I knew that was coming. Hopefully my Flt/CC will let us out to do PT so we won’t be on the flight line the whole time. But, no guarantees since I have my first real flight and a few tests coming up this week…
Snatch – 225 (-20)
Clean and Jerk – 275 (-30)
Fr. Squat – 315 (-5)
Conditioning – 3:55

300813 – do or die

Watch this video. It is unimaginably inspirational. If this kat can do all he does, we have no excuse for anything.

On a more somber note, I didn’t pass my Basic Nav class so I have a remake in the morning. I felt comfortable with the material, I just didn’t have enough time to finish it. So, as I write this up on Thursday night, I’m studying my ass off trying to make sure I leave no question on this one. Otherwise, welcome to a new class. Positive energy though!

280813 – playin’ games

Image

I’m pretty pissed about how this week is being scheduled. I don’t have hardly any time to get my workouts in. On top of that, that CrossFit competition I was going to do is trying to rip people off by how they’re setting things up. I want to compete so I have to play the game. I have a feeling I’m going to be paying 100 bones just to get in this thing. Needless to say, I’m not happy. But, it’s the only competition even close to around here.

Outlaw

1) 12 minutes to establish a 3RM Hang (top of knee) Power Snatch.

2) 12 minutes to establish a 3RM Hang (top of knee) Power Clean.

3) 12 minutes to work to a near maximal complex of: Push Press + Push Jerk + Split Jerk Work (from blocks or rack).

Mammal Training

3×5 Pressing Snatch Balance

3×15 L-Pull-Ups

Conditioning:

5 rounds for total working time of:

3 Muscle-Ups
Row 300m (all out – no gaming for MU)
3 Muscle-Ups

Rest 1:00 after each round.

Me:

Snatch – 195

Clean – 275, f on 3rd rep at 295

Push complex: 235

Conditioning – 9:45

270813 – speak of the devil and he shall appear

I could watch this video about 13x times. Bane is such a badass.

Compare to 300713

Mammal Strength:

6,5,4,3 Bench – moderately heavy

2) 3X1 @ 90% of max from above – rest 60 sec.

Note: Emphasize control when you return to the floor for each rep. You should feel the weight change in the foot as you move from the hang to the start position and back up.

Mammal Training:

3×4 Strict Press

3×10 alternating Pistols (6 weighted, 4 bodyweight)

3×15 L-Pull-ups

Ran out of time for Mammal Training. I hate morning workouts.

260813 – weather

Sorry for the late post guys. Been a hell of a weekend. Good news is I passed the weather test. Bad news is our class had 2 fails. Hopefully they pass tomorrow.

Outlaw

Your choice

My Choice:

4 Rounds for time:

400M Row

10 Burpees

5 Hang Cleans 225 or 185

 

Me:

Overall I’ve been feeling pretty damn good for some reason. My lifts are all going up steadily. My body still hurts but I think I’m getting the form to start to click which is why I’m getting an increase. At least thats what I think.

2 Position Snatch – 215 (+20) – 195×3 (f on 2nd rep of last set)

Squat – 225, 315, 365, 385

My Conditioning – forgot to start the clock but finished in less than 10 and likely faster than 8.

250813 – change in plans

So when we went to Mako CrossFit gym today, turns out all the Rx team slots are filled. So there’s that. I’m not sure how it’s going to work now. They said there may be some slots opening up towards the middle of this upcoming week. If there isn’t, I’m going to see if they have any individual spots left. I kind of want to try out the Road to the Games division but apparently they’re having some legit dudes come through just for this. But, all the more reason to try it, just to see where I’m at. Only bad part about that is, it’s $85 and I know I won’t be winning any money in that division. But if there are some Rx spots left, might have to snag one of those up.

Also, still pretty psyched I snatched 245. I tried to get a video of 255 but, alas, I failed. When I saw the video, it was sickening. Just couldn’t make it stick under. Took this week kind of off for Clean and Jerk and I could tell. Need to make sure I hit more jerks with good form. Cleaned up 315 and just missed the jerk forward but it was right there.

 

Rest day.

240813 – study filled weekend

Image

I might be heading out to a CrossFit box around the way who will be hosting that competition coming up at the end of September. So, hopefully I get to hit some of these maxes.

Outlaw

1) 20 minutes to establish a 1RM Snatch

2) 20 minutes to establish a 1RM Clean & Jerk

Strength

15 minutes to establish a 3RM Front Squat

Conditioning

“(Plus Sized) Helen”

3 rounds for time of:

400m Run
21 KBS 32/24kg
12 C2B Pull-ups

Hit up Mako CrossFit. It’s a pretty sweet gym actually. I wasn’t a big fan of how they were coaching the olympic lifts as far as catch and foot position, but, that’s how I think base CrossFit is taught. However, I think what they do teach is great body mechanics, which is awesome. Anyways, went off on a tangent. Because I did their workout I was a little bit tired. But did get to head back to Portside to get my maxes in.

Me:

Snatch – 245 (+10, felt like fuckin’ butter. 255, not so much, but was under it and just kept losing it forward)

Clean and Jerk – 295 (-10, cleaned 315 which is a 10# PR but failed on the jerk)

Didn’t finish out the rest. Save it for next week.
