DGDL Day

Post by yadmit » Fri Aug 15, 2008 10:11 am

Darn Good Deadlift Day

For me, anyway...

About a year ago I did a bunch to see what I could lift. I'm a smidge above that.

Here's what happened:

Warmed up and then lifted heavy things

135x10x2/225x5/275x2/295x1/315x1(PR)!/320 (miss) tried again, no luck/225x5/135x10

Oh, I did my 12 burps too.

I seem to recall having more of a challenge recovering in my rest period last time than this time. I took three minutes between sets. They felt fast.

On the 320 my back started to round, but I did get the thing off the ground a few inches. Gave it another go and my legs were telling me this just wasn't gonna happen.

Now, the PR is only three pounds, but damn, I don't care.

Only 786 pounds to beat the apparent world record.

Bench & Row Day

Start: 10:33am
Finish: 11:27am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill and rotator cuff stuff

BO Rows: 30x10/50x10/100x5/115x3/125x1/150x3*

Bench Press: 45x10/95x10/115x5/135x3/155x1/175x1**

Burpees: 12/12***

Thoughts: *did four, but I was losing form. Counted as three.

**Not pretty at all. Got it up. It's amazing what thoughts will run through your head when you are under a bar and the possibility of it not going up is there.

***I had a 90 second rest between sets. My legs on the last couple of reps were getting pretty bagged. I wasn't jumping quite as high as the first couple of reps!

I followed with seven minutes of stretching and foam roller work.

Cardio Day

Post by yadmit » Thu Aug 28, 2008 12:01 pm

I have a goal... it may not be lofty to some, but to me it kinda is.

I used to run a six minute mile in grade nine. That was many years ago, and six minutes wasn't a lot then, really... but at least I completed it. Today, a six minute mile is out of the question, for now, anyway.

I want to complete 5k in a short period of time. Not sure on a goal time yet, but my first goal is to do it non-stop running.

Here's how today panned out on the treadmill:

Distance: 3.1 miles
Time: 42:10 - this included a five minute walking warm up. I alternated 3.5mph walk with a 5.5mph run. I am pleased to report it was mostly running today.

HR: top was 145bpm

With a four minute cool down my total distance was 3.31 miles. I burned 435 calories.

I followed that mess up with 13/12 burpees and medicine ball slams (11lbx20x3) and some stretching.

We'll see what my knees think of today tomorrow.

Press & Chins

Post by yadmit » Fri Aug 29, 2008 12:42 pm

Start: 8:33am
Finish: 9:28am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill and rotator cuff stuff

Chins*: BW-140x10/BW-100x10/BW-80x5/BW-60x3/BW-30x1/BWx8

OH Press: 40x10/90x8/95x5/100x3/105x1/110x3

Burpees**: 13/10/3

Thoughts: My weight on the gym scale was 183 pounds.

*Warm ups were pull ups as the assisted machine is awkward with an underhand grip

**Two minute rest

Followed with 7:30 of stretching and foam roller.

I think I am ready for the 5x5 as I will ever be.

My hips are feeling a little sore from yesterdays attempt at a run. Combine that with the leg tiredness and that's why the burps were broken up into three sets.

Did only a few minutes of stretching as I had to run...

Overall, good first day!

Well, what a donkey kicking today was....

Week One - Day Two

Start: 7:13am
Finish: 8:46am

Warm Ups: Eleven Burpees

Squat: 45x8/90x5/105x4/120x3/140x5x5

DL: 80x8/160x5/185x4/210x3/245x5x5*

Press: 35x8/95x5x5

Chins: BW-100x8/BW-10x5x5

Thoughts: Weight this morning was 181.6 (I used 180 for the chins).

This takes a long time. I may drop some warm ups to accommodate shortening the routine. I see this only being a challenge on this particular portion of the routine.

*Really need to watch form on the way down. My back was rounding on the last couple of reps.

**The last rep on the last two sets were 4.5. :)

Cardio Day

Post by yadmit » Sun Sep 07, 2008 1:15 pm

I started with 15 burpees to get some outta the way.

Ran 1.5 miles starting at 5.0 and up to 5.5 then walked for two and a half minutes.

I varied walking and running for the duration of the total distance hitting a top running speed of 6.5.

I completed the 3.1 miles (5k) in 38.01. That's down about four minutes from last time.

After a cool down:

Total Distance: 3.37 miles
Total Calories: 443
Total Time: 43.02

Followed that with:

Burpees: 10/10
Medicine Ball Slams: 13.2lbsx25x3

Stretched for about three minutes after.

Week Two - Day Two

Post by yadmit » Wed Sep 10, 2008 11:43 am

Start: 7:15am

Thoughts: Got all the chins. DAMN! Made an oops on the first set of work Deads. I lifted it and thought there is no way I'm gonna get 5x5 of these... so... I recounted and realized I'd added an extra 20 pounds. Got the set done, but wasn't going to do four more.

Six minutes of stretching and foam roller to follow.
