My favorite rep scheme!
I don’t have a competition planned, so I decided to try squatting in wraps for funsies.
Add loose wrap
515x1 not bad, but a little hard to maintain new form
Played weird exercise horse with one of the coaches at the gym. Highlights included:
Legless pegboard with weighted vest
Sandbag overhead press
Hanging from chime grips
Fastest 100M row
One armed barbell snatch
I’m having a hard time picturing this…
One hand in the middle of the barbell. Barbell on floor. Snatch/throw weight from floor overhead. Don’t drop it
Are you sure you don’t do CrossFit? This sounds like a new event.
I think fitness horse would be a great event. Problem is it appeals too much to specialists. Being really good at something is the opposite of crossfit right? Better to be passable at a bunch of things?
I was mostly talking about the one armed barbell snatch. That seems right up their alley. High degree of difficulty. Uncommon. And high possibility of an injury (if you’re stubborn and try to fight a miss).
I did 135 pretty easily. I thought he’d be stronger at since sincs he like weird lifts. Lol, now I have a number to shoot for.
Ages ago Chris Duffin kept doing them trying to get 100kg. I don’t think he ever managed it but he was close.
30 minutes hitting bag
(200x1)×10 done EHMOM
Bwx2 minute hang
First Boxing class, 1.5 hrs
How was the class??
Very enjoyable. Literally giggling with glee while sparring.
First muay Thai class, 1.5 hrs
Jiujitsu class, 1 hr
Trap bar deadlift SS/W no hands SSB squat
Boxing was fun, but muay Thai was another level of enjoyment. Since i also enjoy/have experience with jitjitsu and wrestling (and the muay Thai and jiujitsu classes are on the same day one following the other), this seems like a better fit. Tuesday’s and Thursdays will probably become martial arts only days, then Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday beingmore traditional lifting days.
Monday: overhead primary SS/ light-moderate vertical pull
horizontal press secondary SS/ moderate-heavy Horizontal pull
Light/pump pressing accessory
Pull primary SS/ plyometric of some sort
Friday: Overhead volume SS/heavy vertical pull
Horizontal press dynamic-ish or heavy-ish SS/ light/volume horizontal pull
Pump pressing accessory
Squat alternating dynamic and moderate/heavy week to week and/or based on planned event training
This may turn out to be way too much, so I’ll have to play it by ear. If I end up dropping anything lifting wise, I’d probably swap to a full body style Monday Wednesday Saturday with an event focus on Saturday since the gym is the most open.
Muay thai class, 1.5 hrs.
Thursday class ends with six 5 minute rounds of sparring. Since i have never sparred a round in my life, this was ridiculously exhausting. Decided to pass on jiujitsu because of a bleeding nose and my poor cardio.
Sparring was always my favorite part of training!
@strongmanbrett same here! The class I’m going to is small and a wide variety of skill levels. For example, yesterday I sparred with a 6’6" practiced kickboxer, a 155 MMA fighter with his 3rd amateur fight scheduled, a blue belt in Jiujitsu from a Machado affiliate, and the tiny 5’3" wife of the giant I sparred first.
The teacher and other students seem to do a great job keeping a learning atmosphere rather than a barroom brawl. People push to work conditioning and technique, but no one is going to war without full consent and prep.
