So, after lurking for a reeeaally long time, I decided to 'cross over to the dark side...'(I'm kidding) and train for strength. I figured the ladies here have a better appreciation.
I train with WW, who is a contributor on FA. He introduced me to the wonderful world of sled dragging, prowler pushing and next session, I get to meet the chains..(fun, fun!) I must say, I'm addicted.
I don't love back squats which is why I take my hat off to Court who makes it look easy!! I can roll with Front squats, which i've maxed at 95lbs for 6 reps.
I discovered my long, gangly limbs love DLs.
For the past 4 weeks, I've been working on chin-ups with bands and today I finally did my first real chin, unassisted. Ghastly, but it's a chin-up nevertheless.
I also trap-bar DLed 225lbs 1x2, 1x3.
Here's the video
I also dragged him on the sled, but he didn't film that, instead here's me dragging 215lbs
So we agreed, my new goals are to DL 315lbs by July 1st and do 5 DECENT unassisted chin-ups.
In between sessions with Wolf, (Mon-Fri) I'll be doing his Half Body workout for the next 4 weeks (I just finished TBT x3/wk). Non-lifting days= ESW...metabolic workout or Sprints. No cardio.
Wish me luck!
