02-02-09 Monday Week 1




Oh, Day 1. Last night-night before Day 1. Let's just say, I could've eaten better yesterday. I started today strong with an apple and some bison jerky for breakfast - and jasmine tea. Had a cup of coffee with light cream and 2 tsp of agave nectar. Yes, I measured it. Not feeling 100%, for sure.

Training Log:
Fight Gone Bad (click it if you don't know what it is) was done around 12:45PM (thanks, PatC for being my counter!) to the sounds of the White Stripes.
20"box, 55#PP, 14#WB to 10' target, 55# SDHP
292

31 points below my PR. The first round I started strong and scored 126 ... it was all down hill after that. It felt like muscle fatigue. Back squats later today....


6:45PM
Back Squat 3x5
155x5
160x5
165x5
170x5

170 is a PR for me for 5 reps. Last time I did these I hit 165 but it felt much harder then. I tried low-bar BS for the first time tonight and it really makes a difference. Feels a little weird, but I feel like I can move a lot more weight with it. The 170 went up so easy, I almost kept going, but decided against it since I had already done an extra set.

Skill practice. Turkish Get-ups with a 20# DB. They felt fine. I'm pretty good at them.

Diet was on track today. No slip-ups.
