Saturday's tester


6'2" 185#

Got halfway unbroken & then crashed and burned. Big tear in the right palm.

The easier it looks on paper the harder it is in the gym.
I made it look especially hard.

Saturdays tester: (used 79.2# kb)


My first time back in the gym since Wednesday...been bed-ridden with the worst flu I've ever had...miserable. I felt physically weak but not too bad all things considered.

Laura, now I don't feel so bad that you never listened to me about the importance of rest seeing you don't even take coach's advice on resting!!! Haha :-)

Chad Hall said...

No time for running, but run a lot during the week.

Part 2:
A: 135x3
B: 115x5

D: did 25 GHD Situps and 25 back extensions.

I missed the Situps during the week so wanted to make some up but felt a twinge in my left quad so shut it down. Glad HSPU weren't timed because it took me a while, started out with 4s, to 3s, and ended with 2s.

Casey S. said...

First Part: Rowed...almost 10,000m with both warm-ups and the workout. I should be getting better at rowing soon! Butt was one big crap after this one!

Waited 2hours...

Second Part:
A: 3x3@83# Felt super fastand solid at the bottom!!
B: 5x5@63# I really did not like these seemed to really make my shoulders feel vunerable jerking off my back like that!
C: oooh boy these were rough! Did ~10on paralettes with the bands but felt so weak so I just did the rest down to 1abmat and called it a day on those!
D: 6x20BE first three sets felt easy then the last 3were rough! Wasn't feeling it in my butt no matter how hard I was squeezing!

Ice Bath tonight!!

Dr Lisa said...

Saturdays tester 132#/5'4"


damn it i wanted to beat 10 minutes but I am just super happy I was able to do all the pullups. I discovered that if i supinate my bad shoulder it doesn't hurt at all during pullups - however i am alot slower that way and my grip got tired very quickly. Any suggestions as to why it doesn't hurt with supinated grip?? Then maybe I can figure out how to fix the damn thing!!!

Dr Lisa said...

AAAAHHHH Siu you beat me yesterday by one second!!! Nice job.

HSPU first five from 45lb plates then 3 from 35 lb plates then 2 from 25 lb plates then went to 25 just hands on floor. I hit that complete failure point that I could even get one rep so I called it and moved on to the back extensions.

Back extensions complete.

I had no thunder in part 2. Also, I usually hurt myself when lower weight from snatch grip so I kept each set super light and I still dropped the bar spot on a vertebra in my neck.

Nate here.

Snatch balance 3x3. 95, 135, 185. strict snatch balance always hurts my left shoulder. kept it light but did a little heave on the 185 because of my shoulder. just wanted to get a little work in.

Then did 5 ring hspu on the top of the minute for 10 minutes. Ended up taking around 11 minutes...the last 3 sets were hard. 50 total. Felt good.

Did a little snatch work yesterday with Rory and then a 5min aerodyne first time ever...LOADS of fun, haha! we both got 149cal, 1 shy of the 150 goal.
