Clean and Jerks

Pushups and V-ups

Result: 7:00
Max said this should take 3 minutes - and several people came in right around the 3 minute mark. Not me - not even close - I came in more than twice that. Yay.

Clean & Jerk 3-3-3-1-1-1


I can barely walk today. My quads feel like they're about ready to peel themselves off my femurs in protest at their rough treatment of the last couple days. It's been a long time since I was this sore. I wasn't sure whether I was going to be able to get anything up. And, indeed, I could not get 55# up the first several times i tried it - I intended to do 55-55-55 for my sets of 3, but that just wasn't going to happen today.

Yet another illustration of how my training has gone to hell. *sigh* WTF.

I don't know whether it's a result of the great no dairy experiment, or of the last couple weeks of backing off a bit, but i had no idea I could lose so much ground so quickly. I feel truly pathetic.

Back to the grindstone I guess. This would probably be a good time to start that Oly Lifting cycle we've been talking about. Focus on regaining some bulk, some strength and some power.
