Week 202

Postby cheapo » Tue Jan 31, 2012 8:28 am

Week 202
    Monday, January 30, 2012
    D1L6:
      24 (+2 cf. previous, -7 cf. PR)
      I had a cold over the weekend, and I left work early today, but I still worked out.

      I went hard and sacrificed a little form to get more rounds. Hot, sweaty, gasping for breath: that's how it should be!

    D2L6:
      Skipped.

    Saturday, February 4, 2012
    D3L6:
      07:45 (-0:54 cf. Previous, +02:51 cf. PR)

      Pull-ups: 32 (16-6-5-3-2)
      Push-ups: 64 (26-10-8-5-5-5-5)
      Squats: 64 (64)

      I love the race-against-the-clock aspect of SimpleFit, but, despite my best intentions, I do find I sacrifice form to beat the clock. I did so, a little, today.

Week 203
    Tuesday, February 7, 2012
    D1L6:
      25 (+1 cf. previous, -6 cf. PR)
      I turned 42 yesterday.

      I workout in my living room. Some days, I come home from work, ready to squeeze in my workout before supper, and there's a nice hot fire going in the woodstove...and I have no choice but workout right in front of it.

      Today was one of those days. It was HOT!

      Push-ups: 64 (32-6-8-6-6-6)
      Squats: 64 (64)

      Pull-ups had a lot of body movement, but good range of motion. Everything else was fine.

Week 204
    Monday, February 13, 2012
    D1L6:
      25 +1 (±0 cf. previous, -6 cf. PR)
      Harrumph.
      I thought I had done 24 rounds last week, so this week I aimed for 25.
      As it turns out, I did not recall correctly, and had, in fact, done 25 last week.

      Bummer.

      On the plus side, I did do one extra round after the buzzer.

      Push-ups: 64 (20-12-10-8-6-6)
      Squats: 64 (51-13)

      I am feeling stronger than I have felt in a while. Despite this, pull-ups had a lot of body movement, and only so-so range of motion. Push-ups had compromised ROM too.

Great workout, I find your progress photos inspiring.

Just wondering if you've ever found the squats to be the movement which limits your workouts, or have your always met your numbers.

I like the way you annotate your workouts. If you don't mind I kinda did the same with my logs. LOL

Great times! Maddog and I were reflecting on the tendency we have both experienced of seeing the D2 times drop over the sets. It's interesting that you have the same thing.

For me it's two things that result in the improving times:
  1. Getting more warmed up (higher heart rate and respiration, warmer muscles) as I go through the workout.
  2. Getting better at the movements too.
Both of those could really be described as "getting warmed up," but I like the distinction between being physiologically warmed up (Item 1) and being mentally and proprioceptively warmed-up (Item 2).

      I am not thrilled about how heavy I look these days.

      01:18
      01:17

      Slower times because I was bringing my chest to the bar. In fact, I was aiming to bring my sternum to the bar, but mid-chest was the best I could manage. Why? Because I read this advice from Ido Portal.

      Not great form on pull-ups or push-ups. :/
