12/5/2012

bwt: 284.5

Warm up
foam rolling
side lying windmills x 10 each side
thoracic extension and rotation x 10 each side
Third world squat x 60 seconds
shoulder mobility
plantar fascia stretch

MMA misery 85lbs x 6reps x 5sets with 60 seconds rest

circuit consisting of : (one minute rest between each set)
power cleans 115lbs x 8 x 8
assisted pullups 160 assist x 8 x 8
overhead press 115lbs x 8 x 8

Had to put straps on after the second set, forearms were just fried. Needed the straps for both the power cleans and pullups. Crazy insane "pump" in my forearms from this circuit, even with the straps on. Is it the explosive part of power cleans? the insane time under tension for the pullups? WTH?? The exercises became basically impossible without straps, and too easy (except for the last few reps, again failing at the forearms) with the straps. Kind of a first for me.

Then, after a few minutes rest, deadlift

315 x 5
405 x 3
475 x 1
475 x 1
475 x 1
475 x 1
475 x 1

thoracic rotation and extension 10 each side
full body clams 10 each side (I like!)
third world squat 1 minute

MMA misery 85lbs 6 x 4, 60 second rest. Still kicking my ass. wonder what I'm doing wrong.

MMA misery 85lbs x 6 x 4 with 60 second rest. Still kicking my ass. Accumulated fatigue? wth?
