workout: evening speed walk, legs crazy powerful: 1 mi w/u, 5 miles @ 12:XX/hard, 2 miles @ 14:XX/light (great for light effort), testing my endorphin racer v2's for walking - they are fast

endorphins are very fast.. if they hurt my heel when I walk hard/fast, they are usually fast shoes (for walking) and usually for running too (but can actually be too intense for roads). My saucony carrera's are a great example, fastest shoes I walk in, can really hurt my heel. For running, I fly in them but, more so for springs. Very hard to run distance on the roads with them. So endorphin v2's feel a bit like them, but less intense (a bit more supportive in the sole).

- run 4.34 km in 22:16
struggle bus. didn't really eat dinner last night (salad and 1.5 cinnamon rolls, which i made and which took so long i forgot about dinner, lol) and drank more than i should have (but won $50 playing poker so...worth it!). these were junk miles, but not enough that i'm worried about it. still happy to have done more than nothing.

- stretch
This forced deload will hopefully get you fully recovered and ready to hit some beastmode PR's with a fresh CNS.

Even in the midst of finals week, could not bring myself to do a 3 day deload. 1 day rest is fine to get my mojo back for lower vol session

Workout time: 1hr 30

Trap bar DL:
395 3*3 (PR tie)
315 *5, 5, 5, 10 (45s rests, RFD) (+extra volume)

Behind the head seated OHP:
95 2*8 (+1 set)
105 *8F (+10lbs, +1 set)  :personal-record:

ss1a: DB reverse flys 15's 3x8
ss1b: bent over DB external rotations 12.5's 3x8 (+2.5lbs/ arm)

ss2a: Dec situps (overhead weight):
BW x25
10lbs x12 (+4 reps)
25lbs x1 (+5 lbs) big  :personal-record:
10lbs x12 (+4 reps)
ss2b: Palloff Press 3x8 ea side

ss3a: Bar Curls: 65 2x8, 70 1x8
ss3b: Tricep cable machine: 57.5 3x8

jumps+dunks x25 - got a few hard dunks in including 1-step DLRVJ. Not high enough to tomahawk. If I could palm the ball with my left hand I could dunk off R-SLRVJ.

SVJ @31"
DLRVJ @33.5"
L-SLRVJ @30"
R-SLRVJ @32"

bball skill dribbling x 20 mins

Touch Rugby-
Won easily. Apart from the first game we are undefeated and winning games convincingly.

Man you are killing it lately.


other people's PR's help fuel other people's PR's, internet gym atmosphere of is extra solid right now.


Couldn't be more true. I'm sure there's some kind of PR multiplier going on here.

Strength session- 75% week

Basically no warm up.

bar x 10, 60 x 5, 75 x 5, 5, 5

bar x 10, 40 x 5, 62.5 x 5, 5, 5

Wide grip RDL- 60 x 10
DL- 80 x 5, 5, 5

Got out of bed and to the gym ok this morning but pretty much phoned it in. Got all the mandatory stuff done then got out. I'm operating at a pretty easy level right now as I build this base but I'm looking forward to testing my maxes after the next two weeks to get a proper idea of where I'm at. The consistency has been good this week as I haven't missed a session but now need to add back in a proper warm up and my stretching/SMR too.
Funny how much my squat form improved though when the two crossfit chicks in booty shorts turned up during my second set  :D :ibsquatting: :ninja:

hah. 100%.

happens with running too.. posture improves instantly and you run faster, always worth taking note when that happens too, so you know what to do when the females aren't around. lmao!

Haha the ego is a beautiful thing isn't it. Now only if we can harness it's powers for good.
yeah, i just ate like homer simpson lately.....

that 315 felt like 225 tbh
