incoming excuse train

So unfortunately I wasn’t able to compete in my meet today. In the last month I’ve run into some financial troubles, got a second job as an apprentice electrician so I’ve been working 90-100 hrs/wk, started coaching my sons tball team, and haven’t worked out one time in the last month :joy:

I’m back in the saddle now and am moving to a new training block. I’ll be doing… hushed gasps … crossfit for the next few months to see how I like it. I won’t be training in a box, I’ll be doing the WOD posted online by my local box after going through some strength/ explosive movements. Here’s how today went.

Push press:
135x5
155x3
185x1
205x1
215x1
225x1

WOD:
3 rounds of:
7 burpees
7 air squats
7 lunges (each leg)
7 v sits

Time: 6:45

Had to take a surprising amount of rest for these. Sucking wind and my legs were on fire.


#327

Hey man welcome back, good to have you here.

BUT CROSS FIT :slight_smile:

I think you at least occasionally should join the box. I haven’t done CF but I’ve heard one of the things is the competition against the others, that makes it so … fun??


#328

Damn i thought u were cool… kidding man welcome back. Also 90-100 hrs is alot!!


#329

Was quite literally just thinkin’ that it’s been awhile since you’ve checked in, life has a way of hitting you right in the guts sometimes, glad to see ya back, interested in your crossfit experience.


#330

Yeah, it sucks dong. I’m looking at closer to 120 this week. :sweat_smile::gun:

I’m using the term crossfit very loosely lol. I’m pretty much just using a WOD as metcon at the end of my sessions

#332

Glad to see you back! Hope you’re able to get the financial shenanigans under control.

I think the little crossfit WODs would be a nice addition to some main strength training. Interested to hear how it goes once you’ve given 'er a good run.


#333

Awesome place you live man. Nice Pics’

Alright. I’ve worked my ass off for the last month going about 90-100 hrs/week at my two jobs to offset some financial misfortunes, and have finally gotten caught back up. This means I’ll have more time to get back into training.

As usual, I’ve been going trough little cycles of losing weight and then gaining it all back. I’m coming back in a few pounds light after the last couple weeks. sitting right around the 267lb mark and hoping to keep the trend downward for a change. 250 is in my sights.

Decided to change my log name to something ambiguous since I can never stay committed to any one training program for extended periods of time (except Squats McKenzie, that shit was dope At this point “functionality” and strength are not as high priorities as fat loss, so I’ll befocusing entirely on physique for the time being and rocking the old bro split from back in my younger days. Here’s the 6 day schedule:

Day 1: shoulders/bis
Day 2: Back/abs
Day 3: OFF (arms)
Day 4: chest/ tris
Day 5: legs/ abs
Day 6: OFF (arms)

OFF day arms will just be waking up and a couple supersets of band curls/ extensions with the new 40 and 50lb bands I got. Just some easy pump work. Add in conditioning as needed.
