I felt really good about the 470 for 5 without a belt, definitely a PR if I kept track of beltless.  I will get it back on Friday though...so that is good.

1/3 mile run (kinda more of jog/walk on second 2)
10 tire flips
5 stone over shoulder (145#)
17:55 (I am planning on using this as a benchmark workout as I do more conditioning, it is the time domain that I really need to work on and is enough fun to balance out the suck that I would be motivated to do it more than once...may try it next week)

I did the squats beltless, I think I left my belt at the meet.  Going to email the director and some referees today and hope that Jen Thompson found it.

5 Rounds:
1/3 Mile Run (around block)
10 Pendlay Rows @155 (fast up, slow down)
5 ab wheels from knees (these have gotten much easier from when I first tried them, I think fatigued lats make them really hard)

Bis and Tris 12-10-8
Curls @75#
Skull Crushers @65# (I have always been pretty weak at skull crushers,  but have also never done them too much)

My plan right now is to work in more conditioning in hopes of shedding some body fat and try to hit core and upper back more.  After the honeymoon I will plan out my next meet and start figuring out my training cycles.

3.22.14 BATTLE OF THE BORDER

Woke up and weighed at 220.5 (though the scale only went to 0.5) so I took a hot shower, walked a quarter mile or so, and drove the 45 minutes to the meet with the heated seat and heat all the way up...scale said 220.2 so I was good to go (as I thought the 220 weight class is actually 100 kg)...I NEVER plan on cutting weight that close again, I think that may been some of the issues on bench and dead.  



Squats:  These went as planned at 200-212.5-220.  I wanted to hit a meet PR on my second attempt and then a 10 kg PR on my third. 

Bench: I started 2.5 kg lower than my original plan, this was because I was opening about 10 kg ahead on everyone in my weight class except Chris London, who was opening at 170kg so I knew I just needed to finished a solid second.  I went 152.5-160-162.5.  I originally wanted to hit 162.5 on my second and try for 167.5 on my third, but I was not really feeling awesome on bench and decided to take what was there.  

Dead: As seen on the video I was 20kg out of first going into deads and was opening 27.5 kg higher than first place guy.  Decided to just take what was there, but mainly pick attempts to go for the win.  Went 245-252.5-257.5, first two attempts were where I wanted them, I wanted 260 on my third but decided to play it safe and go for the win and a 1400+ total and not get too greedy.  The meet was going REALLY fast too, I think I had about 5-6 minutes between each deadlift attempt so I was not fully recovered, in the end going with 257.5 was a good decision because that was everything I had in the tank and probably the hardest lift of my life.  Someone said after it looked like I was either going to make the lift or pass out...I cannot tell you what all went through my head during the lift but it was something like this "Heavy, buy I got it...shit, it stopped moving...feet through the floor Keane...don't hitch...damn, this is slow...squeeze your glutes...quit shaking like a bitch...pull mother fucker...LOCK IT OUT...YES...LIGHTS? (white)...YESS!."  I could not have asked for a better situation.  It was nice to actually be competing with someone for a medal and knowing exactly where he was at and what I needed to win...a third attempt dead for a PR, 1400 total, and the win...plus being the last attempt in the flight and knowing I had 0 left in the tank that day...I could not think of a better way to end a meet.

2.27.14

C17W1 3x5

Backsquat: 295-340-385

5x3@90%=410



I was pretty pumped to hit all these.  Based on how easy 400# felt last week I did not think it would be a problem, but less than 10 months ago 405# was my 1RM so hitting +5# for 5x3 was pretty exciting.

The video shows my tendency to lose the weight a little forward coming out of my bounce, that needs to be worked on after the meet training is over.

C17W1 3x5

Deads: 350-405-460

5x3@90%=485

The 3s at 485 felt MUCH better and much faster than they did last week at 480.  I think that the one less day rest after squats and the ski trip was what was to blame for that terrible day.

I was pretty pumped about that 170 for 5, until I realized I hat hit 165 for 5 last April.  It was not too hard but I have more in me...but damn press is really frustrating for me compared to bench.
