Would the May 15-16 NW regional be considered early or late?

Yelvi, if you were doing late may you would be set to peak may 29-30th, I'm pretty sure you don't want to peak 2 weeks after your comp... If you do early may you would be peaking for may 7/8(I assume) which would be a week early... I think your best bet would be to work a week behind the blog go ensur you peak at the right time... Just my 2 cents

DeeJay said...

Using early may...

Not sure about second round,

Is it (4 burpees+15 DUs)/repeat/repeat.. for a minute, rest 3min, 5 sets?

Brent Maier said...

Early May: Denver Regionals May 1-2

A1 BS: 70/80/90/100/110/130kg (286#)
A2 C2B: 20x6: First 2 rounds were unbroken, after that I got to 10-12 before breaking. No chalk and smooth small bar made this one difficult today. I'm happy that I hit all 120 of them with no misses!
B1 WLunge: 70/70/70#db's
B2 GHDSU: 20/20/20

Pampered the legs just a bit as the right thigh still knotted a bit in the full squat. Kicked it up just a tad in the last round and it felt good. Refueling for Part II.

Michael McCabe said...

late may
A1. 235, 245, 255, 265, 275x3 (messed up my breathing on the last set)

B1. 35x15, 45x12x2... tough keeping tempo at the bottom
B2. amrap strict pullups 13, 9, 9 (had to do this at goodlife, there was nowhere to kip without losing teetch)
C. first time with a GHD - did 15x4sets

Corbin said...

Early May (8th&9th)
Had a chance to workout in an actual box with bumper plates so took advantage and worked on the Snatch: worked up to 90kg then did WOD:
A1. 100kg, 110kg, 120kg, 127.5kg, 132.5kg, 137.5kg
A2. unbroken, unbroken, 17/2/1, 14/3/2/1, 10/3/3/3/1

Rested about 5 hours
Part 2:
2 rds+burpees, 3 rds, 2 rds+burpees, 2 rds+burpees, 3 rds

Yelvi said...

Thanks for the reply DJ. I guess Ill do late May for this week and then come back to today's and start the early May programming next Saturday. I think that sounds right?

LuLu said...

Late May

A1. 125-135-135-145-135 all x 5
A2. 25-30-35-35-35 all x 2
B1. 25lbs in each hand, 14" box x 15 all sets
B2. UB-UB-B last set was hard, crazy forearm burn
C.All unbroken

Notes: OPT or anyone who reads this that wants to help. When I do squats Rippetoe style I can do a significantly higher wieght. I did them with highbar(up high on my shoulders) today and a narrower stance but they are way harder for me this way. Should I do both styles? or just focus on one. Any advice???

Mack Lar said...

Late May. Regionals are May 15-16 so I'll follow late may until about two weeks out and then peel off and do early mays taper unless Coach reccomends otherwise. Did this for Sectionals and it worked out well.
A1. 235/245/255/260/260 Stayed at 260 despite getting 5 because couldnt maintain tempo.
A2. 75/80/85/90/90
B1. 50/hand for all.
B2. All UB
C1. All broken.
Love this stuff. 260 for 5 is a PR, even at tempo.

joey warren said...

ken c said...

late may

changed it up some today to work on snatch.

power snatch + ohs + snatch: 135 155 175 185
snatch: 195(ties pr) 200f x 3

A1. 275x5 285x5 295x5 305x4 315x3 (high bar)
A2. 50x2 55x2 60x2 65x2 70x2
B2. pull ups unbroken
C. ghd sit ups unbroken

skipped the step ups since i did the snatching. 60 sec rest between pull ups and sit ups. surprised at how good the snatch felt so i went for a pr. probably could have gotten it with a different progression.

Eric Montgomery said...

First day back at it after SD sectionals last weekend.

A1 (in kg's): 100x6, 110x6, 120x4, 120x4, 130x2, 130x2. Had some problems coming forward on toes and keeping chest up when I started to get tired.
A2: Did 15 CTB reps after set 2, 4, and 6 of squats trying to avoid messing up my torn hands any more
B1: 45lbs, 50lbs, 53lbs. Not too difficult.
B2: 20, 20, 20. Hard time forcing myself to stay at that tempo.

Wes hendricks said...


First day back since sectional

Late may:
A1. 205-215-225-235x3 245x2(high bar)
A2. 70-80x2 90-100-100 x 1
B1. 30-30-30 x 12.....almost positive I did these wrong. My computer wouldn't open the video up on the OPT site
B2. 25 x 3 unbroken....I am assuming this was suppose to be normal butterfly?
C. 20 x 3 unbroken

Feels good to be back. Surprise how much I was able to back squat today, especially at tempo

Joey O said...


First OPT workout ever, stoked to be on the programming, definitely have a lot of catching up to do to get to you animals!

Late May:

A1. 185-205-225-235-245 (all for 5)
A2. 25(2)-35(2)-45(2)-45(1)-54(1)

B1. 45 x 12/25 x 12/25 x 12...backed off after the first set, wanted to work on form, had to search google for demonstration (cant believe how locked up forearms were for pull-ups)
B2. 15-10, 12-8-5, 15-10...Wasn't sure if this was chin breaking vertical plane or if we could butterfly, so i just worked on regular kip, no butterfly
C2. Only did 15x3...First time doing GHD's and was a tough tempo with arms overhead

Cant wait to hit it tomorrow, awesome numbers everyone!

Early May peak (although not competing)


B1:24/32/32 KBs each hand

All weights in kilos.

Notes: Had to use a purple (smallest) band on chin-ups. Went bouldering last night and had absolutely no grip left. Messed up the tempo on top a little bit on second rep of last set of squats as almost lost balance.

Didn't do second part as still having some achilles tendon/posterior calf issues from practising back tucks without adequate warm-up last weekend.

following late May:

A1.205(5)/225(5)/245(2)...WTF?/245(4)/255(3)...(high bar)...I was a bag of hammers on the squats today...tempo beat the sh*t out of me...
B1.30(40#)/30(45#)/14+10(55#)...first time doing these...legs were good...grip gave out on last set...
B2. UB, UB, 17(4+4)...first 2 sets were fast and strong...grip was smoked on last set

Late May

A1: 185(5), 205(5), 225(5), 245(4), 250(4)
A2: 55(2), 65(2), 72.5(1), 75(1), 80(1)

B1: 16kg(15), 20kg(12), 16kg(13)
B2: UB, 15/10, 12/7/6

C: all unbroken


Squats felt great today, legs have recovered, should have started at 205 but only got to 210 a few days ago so really happy with 250. Tempo was great, "x" was getting a little slow at the end.

Weighted pull ups all pronated.

Rus. step ups were difficult. Couldn't hold tempo at 20kg so went back down to 16kg.

Grip was toast on kipping pull ups.

GHDs were tough but very happy I did all of them, head was going to explode at the end and pukie was there, but kept trucking through.

Michelle said...

First day back after Sectionals...didn't feel like there was much in the tank to begin with, but it was good to get back into it and see people I haven't seen all week!!!

A1. 115/135/147.5/157.5/165...5 reps/set, tempo good.
A2. 25/27.5/30/35/37.5...2reps/set.

B1. 20#/hand and 20' box for all 3 sets.
15/14(right leg); 12/12; 12/10...should have done these on a lower box or dropped the weight as form was lacking. Felt so tired on these!
B2. UB/14, remainder broken/15, remainder broken...had NOTHING in forearms!!!!

C. UB/UB...tempo good, no time for 3rd set...

jason said...

B1. 20lb DBs/24" box - 15,12,12
B2. Unbroken butterfly
C. Unbroken, a little too fast on the tempo as it took 1:50 to complete each set. Like the pause at bottom and slower concentric -feel more control through the movement now. GHDSUs have been a dreaded exercise in the past.

BS felt good on this as did the weighted chin ups. Russian step up was new to me, probably could have used a little more weight. Tried to mix up the pull ups between butterfly and kipping. GHD's felt decent for the first time as well.
