First 200’s were done in about 42-44 sec. My prob was upon the turnaround as always straight into a big headwind. During the last two I gulped a little too much water and felt as though it was going to come straight back up on each of the last 100’s. a little slow

Today before training went to the supplements store guy was super helpful ended up with a straight carbohydrate, protein whey and L-Carnitine.

When training was done mixed 20g of whey – 90g Carb – 10g L-Carnitine different approach to being a mixture but a least I know what I’m getting

High & Lows Part 2

A. Build to a 1rm Power Snatch

80kg Not pretty but its a PR

This next phase I would really like to consolidate that and get that tidier. On the video below to previous weights at 70 & 75kg were ok. 80kg Psyched me out..

B. Build to a 1rm Push Press

100kg club

12 Deads @ 85kg
21 Box Jumps

T: 9:53 New PR by 27 sec

Super pumped with this one as the previous day was a bit of a low.

High & Lows

14-12-2012

3000m Run on Track

Had super high hopes of bettering my original time in testing as I was looking at this as a big sesh within the month. It wasn’t to be. Absolutely no excuses felt good wasn’t sore or tight unlike last time. Yeah it was about 30 degrees (about 105) but clear blue skies.

 

Breakfast Bacon, 2 x poached eggs, avocado, baked beans, mushrooms & Tomato
Lunch – 4 x Vegetable Goyza (Chinese dumpling)
Plenty of water and what I think was well hydrated

Time: 13:46 (6 seconds slower than in original test)

So what to take from this? Not as fast as last time – am I unfitter? Good to maintain energy system without too much work on it – Maybe? or I’m hoping. Couple of Kilos heavier? When completed test the first time came off the back of doing half marathon. Alot stronger in other areas, 20kg Increase in clean, 15kg Back Squat, 17.5kg Weighted Pullup & greater capacity for M/U and HSPU. Yes I’m disappointed but there are good days and bad. Hopefully the next time I hit the gym will be a good one can’t dwell too much on today, analyse and move on.

 

 

Modified Seshion New PR

13-12-2012

A. Instead of doing 3 heavy hang cleans from below the knee I did 3 Hang snatch from below the knee. My forearm was a bit sore from Tuesday’s session. Focused on speed underneath the bar and trying to force my knees out.

B. Was meant to hit 3 x 5 1 1/4 Front squats. I didn’t want too much extension of my wrist so modified to O/H Squats. Felt solid did 3 x 8 @ 60kg

C. 30 M/U for Time

Over a 6min PR with a total time 10:14 super happy with this even with a sore forearm that was affecting gripping rings. Failed a few attempts tried for a few 3’s instead of settling for 2’s.
