I set my alarm and got up early for some sprints. 7am over at Heritage High School.
There was a nice little chill in the air. Perfect for running. I warmed up with 800m of jogging.
- 100m Sprint
Eased into the first few sprints so I didn’t pull a hammy or anything. Legs were really feeling it in the last 3 sprints. Walked 800m after I was done.
Spent most of the day helping out at the pro-am at Survival Fitness today and then went over to Kevin’s garage around 7:30.
3:00 Air Dyne
I was using the blocks at mid-thigh again. I’d do 3 snatch deadlifts and 3 snatches. Used 65#, 95#, 115#, 135#, 145# (missed the first snatch), and then 155#, where I failed at 2 snatch attempts not fully committing to them. Called it quits there because it just wasn’t in me for the day. The two hits at 145# were 10# higher than last week so I’ll take that as a success. Pretty tired from a long day and the sprints in the morning.
5/3/1 Bench Press – Cycle 2 Week 2
- 5 @ 85# (40% of Training Max – warm)
- 5 @ 110# (50% – warm)
- 3 @ 135# (60% – warm)
- 3 @ 150# (70%)
- 3 @ 175# (80%)
- 3+ @ 195# (90%)
I’m sore and tired from the throwdown on Friday, but managed to pull out 6 reps at 195# for an estimated max of 233.5#, which is just below the most I’d done from back in November. Maybe I’ll PR on bench press once this year yet. 🙂
