So the Crossfit thread and @JMaier31 log got me thinking about changing my training up pretty radically (seems radical to me, idk).

So, I created a new template I’m calling Beauty and the Beast (very original) or the Battle of the Bs (haven’t decided yet).

The general breakdown is like so:

For the longest time I’ve been stuck in this mentality of:
First Strenght Work
Then Hypotrophy
Then Conditioning

So, I’d do something like 5/3/1 (for example) or make my own template where I’d do the above workout 3-4 days a week. The problem I’ve noticed over the long-run is I would usually gas out mid hypotrophy work and just ignore the conditioning part or half-ass it. Hence the new approach.

I’ve started to put together my first 4-week cycle. This might still get tweaked a bit and I have to really look over it to make sure I’m hitting everything I want to hit/do everything I want to do. For example, I left out farmer’s walks, which is something I really want to implement so that’s a change I’ll likely make.

Here’s the template




I’m open to any thought/suggestions

That’s a pretty sweet looking template. Plan on changing the WOD each time through or cycle through those few?


#563

I’m definitely going to change the WOD’s around. I figure I’ll start with a couple of the “girls”, but then use this WOD roulette app on my phone for some variety.


#564

That looks much better than doing WODs every day of the week!


#565

The gym has been christened.

It’s so pretty! It looked you checked yourself on the lockout of that first press to make sure you didn’t hit the ceiling.

I can’t do any standing overhead work at home.


#567

Lol, ya, I had checked earlier to make sure I wouldn’t hit the ceiling, but it’s soooo close. I’ll probably be checking it for a while. I can always lower the platform I’m on, though. I’m standing on at least 3" of rubber on top of the rubber flooring.


#568

Just don’t go full lock out, cuz time under tension = gainzzz…yeah, I’m a problem solver.

Yesterday was a shit show at my house. Managed to start lifting at about 9:15. It was quick and light. At least it was something.
