The Death of DubDub's Dunking Quest

The forum regular's may remember a little while ago I was recommended checking out crossfit.com by TimD. Unfortunately that has led to the death of my pursuit of dunking, and hence the reason for my journal here. Make no mistake, I will continue to train, though I will incorporate a lot more crossfi...

First off, you bench 365? damn, you must be huge. I think you're starting too low. For you I think 1/225 1/275 1/315 2/350-365 would be better. Here's how I do it... I rotate between 4 types of workouts, 5x5, 4x4, 3x3 and pyramid, where I use the same weight for each of my AxA types sets. Recenly I ...

Oh, I also did three 'experimental' sets of hanging sit-ups
1/8
1/6
1/3.5

I am looking forward to doing more of these, they are much more fun than regular sit-ups.

If those are your 1RMs from right now then it's fine to go light for a few weeks, but if those are your lifetime 1RMs (you said you used to lift) then you should fine out what you can handle now. If your goal is powerlifting then you'll want to work with at least 80%... in your light phase, and you'...

Yeah I was debating bent-over row and cable row, but I think for cardio I'm going to start doing rowing, so cable row will be boosted by that.

Essential Exercises

I've decided on a list of 9 exercises that I want to track my progress in, but I was wondering if there are any glaring omissions. I think together they pretty well measure total body fitness. These aren't the only exercises that I'll do, although they constitute most of the exercises that I'll do f...

Well said Ironman. I don't think about that because, in the summertime, I do my stuff on the back porch (I have three bars and close to a thousand pouds of weight, with adjustable DB's), and in the winter, I can move it indoors. The people that go to commercial gyms though, might have a problem. Ti...
