deads and more deads

3x3 Deadlifts

240/260/280(pr) . . . that was hard. low food day and was hard to get it going.

But still did 195lbs x 21. pr

That was brutal. That was the first time I can remember my grip being fine, but my arse being so fired up I was having a hard time bringing my hips forward and standing all the way up at the last couple of reps.

Deadlift Day

And at the Senior Citizens Home, Wylie, Texas Chapter



225/245/265 (pr)

15x195 (pr)

Odd how much harder the high rep stuff is after the heavy bits than all by its lonesome . . .

Some mess I dreamt up . . . .

Because I am stupit . . . and I lost a bet

5 rft
200 meter run
5 manmakers @ 35lb
10 pullups

21:32 Pathetic

Edit: Here are my laps: 3:05/4:08/5:07/4:39/4:31 (lookit me losing it in the middle).

This was the result of losing a bet . . . Cowboys v. Giants and the Cowboys lost by one and so i did this, which I thought up and it sucked bad.

I just felt slow. I think I slug it too much on the runs but if I go all out that means I just wait before lifting. Oh, maybe that's the trick . . . go all out then pick up the weight to regulate breathing.

Pullups, fell off the bar on the first set at 8, but the rest broken, too much bar staring, etc.

Deads, sits

The week's not over 'till the deadlifts make your butt sing . . .

12x195lb (pr . . I think . . pretty sure.)



20 ghd
15 good mornings @45lb

6:36 and to teach me to look for my old records, previously did 4rft 30/25 in 9:36.

Cash out:

1:00 of tuck sits (like when you can't do an L-Sit after a bunch of deads and ghds . . . )

Crap Parenting: a trip to ikea in one sentence:

From my son:

Up the escalator, low ceiling, high ceiling, down the stairs, ice cream!

Thrusters+pushups = evil

Some gunky thing I made up, in my garage, since my lazy ass needed to do something:


Thrusters (95lb)


5:47 pr on a made up wod, last time was 8+

Seeing as how last time I noted that it was a muscular failure more than metcon and this time it was both, I was happy wit this.

Dead Day





21-15-9 @ 185

In one of the dumbest things I've ever done, I only set out to do 21, but then I realized I'd still have to do 21-15-9 eventually, so I finished it out simply because I was in the mood for pain now, and this way I can move up in weight.

A year ago this weight slipped from my hands. This time it got a little grippy at 12 or so on the 15 set, but it was a matter of simply gritting my teeth and clenchin up.

One mile run

One mile run, in neighborhood . . . not sure about the distance, absolutely sure about the time . . .

Still was the suck: 6:42.

Not my best effort, but I wanted to know.

*I don’t know if it was exactly a mile, I sure as hell hope it wasn’t short or I was lollygagging a 7 minute mile. Oh and it was uphill both ways, just worse on the way back. But it establishes a test I can use.



Yeah, 23 second slower on the way back . . .
