 Wittekind AL, Micklewright D, Beneke R (2009) Teleoanticipation in all-out short duration cycling. Br J Sports Med. doi:10.1136/bjsm.2009.061580
"...their conclusion was that people only exert their greatest power output when the expected test duration is less than 30 seconds."
"The subjects needed to stop the task either because the perceived level of exertion needed for the TTE (total time to exhaustion) was more than they were willing to give to succeed in the task, or their level of effort was so high that exercising for much longer was beyond their perceived ability."

Training:
part 1:
A. Halting Clean Dead Lift + Finish @ 1112; 3 x 3; rest 3 min
(add weight from last week)
B. Clean and Jerk - 70% x 1 x 3; 75% x 1 x 3; 80% x 1 x 3; rest 1 min
(1st 9 reps on the minute; if all successful take up singles gradually AHAP off the clock)
C. Clean Pull; 3 x 3; rest 3 min
(add weight from last week)
D. Front Squat - 87%; 3 x 2 reps; rest 3 min

rest 6+ hours

part 2:
AirDyne Sprints:
30 sec all out sprint
Rest 3:30 x 5

Haven't posted in a while, just wanted to drop in. Suffered a suspected tibial strain, badly bruised heel, and a potential achilles injury a couple of weeks ago. And my shoulder seems to be acting up as well. Didn't seem too bad at first, but healing is VERY slow. MRI in a few weeks. It is killing me to miss this cycle, but this cycle might have been killing me.

OPT, quick question about the comp on the 25th. Assuming I am ready to go, I have a ton going on that day. I'm working day shift, it's my birthday, and I'm part of a massive fundraiser that night (http://www.fashiononfire.com/ - safe for work) Are we able to do the competition the day before, or a couple of days later?

Lars said...

James,

Here's the video of my 225 overhead squat.
Any comments or suggestions of things to work on to improve my form and reduce the stress on my wrist would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Lars

Only modified workouts right now, re-injured my left knee last week (again), of all things while landing during the Burpee WOD with 12'' above max reach jump, it just buckled underneath me, heard another pretty loud pop. Finally got scheduled today to see doc 10/08 (trying to slip in earlier in the clinic), hopefully nothing too serious.
Did modified workout from the other day, 30 sec shoulder press (45#), 30 sec CTB, 30 sec Push-ups, 1 min row, 2 min rest for 4 rounds.

Mobility WOD stuff really helping with shoulders and hips.

B - 190#, 205#, 220#, 240# x 1

C - 240#

D - 260# x 3 sets

quick hips remains my issue so I'll stay lighter on the d-lifts til that gets better

my OHS is absolutely ridiculous. My ratio of snatch(195)/OHS(175) is 111%. Just can't seem to get out of the hole on the bottom of OHS.

Martin Altemark said...

part 2:
5x0:30/3:30 hill sprints

Took forever to warm up, ran 3k in slow pace to get ready. Sprits turned out fine, but hip flexors will probably be tight tomorrow. Rest was perfect - right what I needed to repeat effort. Nice weather too.

Notes: Was exhausted from only 5.5 hours of sleep but pr'd at 260 on C&J. Last week missed 255(old pr) so feels good. Tried 265, but couldn't get under it...I'll have it soon I think.

Part I.
A. 260,280,300 (had to re-grip on third rep)

C. 225,235,240
D. 245x3

Tired today and hard to focus b/c work is so busy and I had to race out of the gym. Please with the PR - still need to refine jerk technique and tie it all together.
All front squats were ass-to-ankles on Greg's recommendation. Again, much harder, but good to train.

Part II - doubtful b/c of work.

FS continues to feel heavier than it should. Talked to doc that works out of my box and he thought it might be lack of Calcium that causes my quads to be extremely sore after workouts. Anybody else have issues with that?

Bear said...

I had a really difficult time tonight transitioning from the catch to getting a good grip on the bar for the jerk. I was catching the bar at the fingertips and it just seemed tough to get it in the right place preceding the jerk.

Notes: A little frustrated with C&J. PR is 225 which I got last week. Think I waited too long after my last meal and was low on energy. Still missing full extension and speed under the bar. Knee gets acting up with all the squat cleans, have to be smart about this.

10 min rest

Part 2

Subbed rows for meters

194/188/192/181/182

X said...

No AirDyne so just subbed row sprints

Meters - 178, 180, 181, 175, 180. Perfect amount of time to maintain a full throttle sprint and fully recover for the next one. Pace was 1:21-1:24 roughly t/o

24/26/22/24/22

Smoked me. THIS was like multiple winggates. Didn't click in until I hopped on the bike for round 2 and figured I was in for some fun. Later 3 rounds started to fatigue around 15 seconds in.

17 cal - 1:27.4
17 cal - 1:27.9
16 cal - 1:28.9
15 or 16 cal - 1:29.9

Was running on about 5 hours of sleep for part 1. Everything felt accordingly heavy...didn't take up c&j's any higher than 80% even though I made all lifts on the minute. Got a nap in before part 2 though and felt MUCH better. Experimented with the damper setting at 7 - usually I have it at 4. Dug the higher setting for short efforts like these.

Angelo Fosco said...

Part 2: Subbed rowing
167-170 meters every time.

I hestitate to post this cause my form is pretty terrible....but it was a max out. This is the link to a video of the 260lb C&J, I would appreciate any feedback...like I said I know the form is pretty bad.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spm1rPVG8js

Also...is it ok to use different damper settings depending on what we're doing for the day? At 180lbs I just always use damper setting 4. Thanks!

Derek said...

A. 275#, 285#, 285#
B. Was brutal. Decided to work out in am and was not a good idea. Got to 192#(75%) and was struggling so I did not continue from there.
C. Shoulders killing me from above so did not attempt.
D. 275# all sets

rest 8 hours

Part 2

Sub row: cal 21/21/20/19/17

@ PTS

I would suggestion to slow your first pull down. the first pull is just to set up your second pull and you are pulling from the floor way to fast which is causing you to have a little rounding in your back and your legs almost look straight to me when you hit your knees which is not what you want. Pull nice and slow till you hit your knees keeping your back angle the same then explode from there.

On your jerk take a deep breath to raise that bar higher and drop your ass under that bar as fast as you can and align your self underneath the bar. Hope this helps.

Aaron Betts said...

A. 185,205,225

I really thought I was going to get a PR today on the C and J. Everything felt light and fast, then I missed @ 215. I have been stuck at some of these weights for some time now. I need to look at my nutrition and recovery again.

Part 2- 9 hours later
26 Cals on the first set, the monitor died shortly after. Satan's tricycle is an appropriate name for the airdyne.

Joel B. said...

First training in a week. Hate missing anytime much less in the middle of a phase, but it couldn't be helped.

Part 1
A: 255, 265, 275
B: 145X3, 155X3, 165X3
rounded to nearest 5. In previous weeks I was figuring this wrong. Also now doing full cleans on all unless power is programmed.
AHAP: 185, 200, 210 pr
C: 200X3
D: 190X3

Part 2
First time on Airdyne. I have one now but it is from 1987. Perfect condition except for monitor doesn't work. What can you expect for $48. Anyway, did the training and it was as difficult as everyone said. After set 3 the burn never went away during rest. Queasy too.

Steve said...

Sub'd Row for Airdyne
1. 195m
2. 195m
3. 197m
4. 195m
5. 193m

Tried hard to get to 200m but kept gassing at around 5 seconds to go. 30 seconds is a perfect timeframe for this, just enough to crush you but allow you to recover enough to be ready for next round.

Paul Klein said...

DL's felt really solid and strong

225 on C and J was a press at the end. Should of tried to hit 230 which is PR but wanted to try and PR again, greedy. Wrists are very weak

Front squat felt good took Stahl and Greg's advice and went ass-to-ankles. Glutes feel pretty nice right now.
waited 15 min:
Airdyne sprints=brutal did it on a spin bike with resistance as high as possible. Reminds me of the Wingate test I run in my Ex Phys lab.

The most horrible experience from 20 seconds on ,with 25-30 misery. Burn in quads stayed from 3rd set on and refused to f... off.
Seriously had to sit down and get my wife to massage quads for a few minutes after final dig.
Let me be brutally honest here , not a good experience, but I can't wait to do it again. Is that kinda weird?

Air-dyne 15,14,13,13,14

-Tried like hell to keep at 15cals (non calibrated cpu)
-Easily the best style of sprint for results we have done during this phase. Legs were throbbing after.

Cleans are coming along well and went up smoothly. Jerk is to the point where I need to go lighter and work on speed.

Good training day and back is fully recovered after chiropractor sessions and icing yesterday.

A. 275
B. built up to 265, failed 275:(
C. 255
D. 280

Cleans felt good, jerks felt terrible. Cleaned the 275 no problem, but commitment issues with jerking it.

Front Squats felt easy.

No time for part 2, still working on my house.

10 min rest

Airdyne Balls Out: 16/16/19/24/16 cals

Notes: Legs were numb by round 3 of the airdyne. This is a newer model airdyne and the calories seem sketchy. There is no way my 4th round was higher than my first 3. All were fast but I'm guessing big the dawg power we all possess is far too much for these babies to handle! Ouuuuu *cough*, I'm smoked!

Still not happy with jerk max but I'm judging progress on how many solid lifts I can perform when we're doing the minute drills. Tonight, I had 3 of them that were flawless of the 12. Last week, I had 1. :)

Final note on todays thought. How many times has James given us 3-5 rounds of something with 15 unb pu's, then next time x20, then x25. I'm determine every time to hit the number and I swear EVERYTIME I hit the last 3 reps of the RX'd number, pain and emotion swells up in my head and face as I finish the last round. Ironic it always happens the last 3 reps of anything unbroken. Hmm, maybe there is some level of truth there. Now we have to learn to push past that when there are no UNB requirements imposed.

Siu said...

Part 1:
A. 165, 175, 185
B. 105x1x3, 113x1x3, 120x1x3 (did not go for AHAP)
C. 135, 155, 165
D. 161

Part 2:
Cals – 18, 17, 15, 15, 16

For Part 1, my C&Js just didn’t feel smooth. I struggled to catch the bar while dipping into the squat, my jerks felt weak and wobbly. So I decided not to go for AHAP. Then I think I may have gone too heavy on my clean pulls because although the shrug felt strong, there was no elbow action happening. I dunno.

As for Part 2, this is the conversation I feel like my body had with itself across the 30 second sprint.

-5 seconds from start
(Mind to body) “You can do anything for 30 seconds!”
30 seconds –> 20 seconds
(Body to legs) “You’re the stronger part, go hard and strong”
20 seconds –> 15 seconds
(Legs to arms) “I’m starting to burn, pick up your slack and do your part”
15 seconds –> 10 seconds
(Arms to legs) “I’m trying!”
(Legs to arms) “You’re going too slow!”
10 seconds –> 5 seconds
(Legs to arms) “You’re worthless, I’m taking back over”
5 seconds –> 0 seconds
(Legs and arms) “This burns, just let this be over”

The bantering just got worse as I progressed from Round 1 to 5.

Did Part 2 from Tuesday with knees-to-elbows subbed for BJ as I can't jump on the knee. Everything felt good considering knee is still a bit swollen.

Rested 5 mins

Brian Gregory said...

Yesterday I made up conditioning from 9-6-10.

Row 40 sec @ 95-97% effort
Rest 3:20 x 8
(rest actively 7 min b/t sets 4 and 5; ensure cool down to flush

Sub'd Airdyne - Tough

Total of 240 calories (according to bottom counter) - Averaged 30 per rd. Couple of 31 and 29's.

Brian Gregory said...

Today's WOD @ St.8

A. 265, 285, 305
B. 175, 190, 205 x 3 each on min successful - 220, 230, 240F cln, 240F jrk, 250 cln only
C. 275 all sets
D. 265 all

rest 3.5 hrs

Row sprints: 30 sec all out x 5 as Rx'd (No way to track work on crap rower)

Notes: Been putting a bit more effort into mobility work on lat / shoulder issue. Felt better today on jerks, but no where near 100%. Mentally not where I should be before I lift. Confidence is down after past couple of weeks due to decline in numbers.
