Got a cold and skipped a few days. Feeling almost 100%. Decided to do some makeup work and did the WOD from a few days ago: push - jerks in 3 reps for 5 sets. Kept the weight low on purpose. I still feel a bit puny and - I decided to give SF L2D3 a whirl. I did it in 3:27! I can go faster.

One of my clients joined me and knocked it out in 1:54. We'll try L3D3 soon!

CF WOD was Cindy - L8D1

I went with the non-scaled version. Got only 9 rounds - but didn't break the pullups on 6 of the rounds!

You have made great progress. And I just went by your blog. Impressive numbers on your CFT.

Thanks man!

I've got to get a new oly bar and more weights. The 350 went up too easily - I really want to break 400 before 2009!

Nice work you're doing as well! That CFWU is nice to help you fine tune.

Thanks! I like the CFWU. It gives a good warm-up and at the same time a bit of practice on the basic bodyweight exercises.

Yeah if you continue your progress you will soon break the 1000 CFT score... So go and get that oly bar :)

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

I did a workout here last night on my carport. In Alabama, 34 streets still wet (65 - 70 % humidity) and very windy also!

5 rounds
75# Power snatch x 15
400m run


Rough! My hands are chapped.

Went to Wright Exercise Equipment (Wright Rubber bumper plates) and bought a few bars, plates and KBs. The Pendlay bar and the bumpers were amazingly smooth. Getting serious around here!

Clean and Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps
135 - 145 - 155PR - 165PR - 175F - 175F - 175F

Failed on the clean. All mental. It was nice on the jerks - I did them in the yard and was WAY more confident since I could dump the bar (and I did every time like a competitor!)

Promptly after that:

Run 5k

Time - 25:41

This was the first time I had ever run a 5k on purpose and so is a PR.
