Sunday 13th June
Read one of alphas rants today and started training a friend who’s been sedentary for a while now, and suddenly im getting a lot of motivation back to really push myself. I really feel like if i can keep this mindset i can achieve any of the goals i’ve set for myself. Just a shame i go away so soon so i’ll be struggling to find a good gym.
Metcon - 3 rounds as fast as possible
10 Burpee Box Jumps
10 Ring Dips
10 Knees to Elbows
6 minutes 8 seconds
A) Power Cleans - 60kg x 3, 65kg x 4,5,5,5
B) Deadlifts - 90kg x 3, 110kg x 3,5,5, 112.5kg x 5, 115kg x 5
C1) Wide Grip Pullups - 20kg x 6,5, BW x 8
C2) Face Pulls - 25kg x 15,13,13
then i started going a little crazy because i had the gym to myself with avenged sevenfold screaming from the speakers and i was angry about the shitty sets of pullups so i just did a kind of circuit of random exercises until ‘almost easy’ finished, which didn’t describe how the circuit felt.
Seated Cable Rows - 60kg x 9, 55kg x 10
Bent Over Rows - 60kg x 8,9,9
Push Press - 40kg x 10,8,7,5,7
V - sit ups - 6,6,6
Bridge going from plank to pushup position - about a minute or so
KTE - 8,8
Just all those exercises in a random order
Biceps still sore from friday, and so couldn’t get as many pullups out as my arms fatigued way before my back, really annoying as i want to get back into my pullups again… gonna have to do some on the rings tommorow to make up for the dismal effort today
forgot how much i love metcon work, gonna incorporate it every workout from now on as a warm up… might even get up early tommorrow before my human movement exam and crank out some farmers walks and the rings before breakfast!
Power Cleans felt really good in the last set, powerful and quick but slight twinge in my lower back. Similarly deadlifts just clicked today, really accelerated well and think i might be able to work up to 120kg x 5 next session
