    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    • Crossfit total

      I've been waiting for this one!
      We are working through our 1 rep max lifts this week. Todays was:

      1RM squat
      1RM deadlift
      1RM press

      I got:
      160# for my squat (35# increase!)
      195# for my deadlift (45# increase!)
      65# for press (no increase there but its my weakest area and I have noticed other strength increases like being able to hold a handstand for MUCH longer!)

      for a total score of 420. I good place to start. I look forward to the next one in 3 months to see where I go from here.

                    • What is Kareems program like?


                      • I am a lazy-bones in December. Thinking I might need to do the Whole 30 in January to get my butt back in gear.

                        Tuesday: indoor climbing for 3 hours
                        Wednesday: 75 minutes of vinyasa yoga


                        • easy lift this morning

                          Press 5-5-5
                          Push Press 5-5-5

                          first time I've tried heavy weight on my presses. Frustrated because it took me three sets to discover my strength substantially increased with a narrower grip. Could have gone heavier but by then I was already somewhat fatigued.

                          followed by AMRAP for 2 mins of push press at 60% of the weight (34)

                          going back tonight for more. Not used to leaving fuel in the tank


                          tonight tried to do my Gorilla Mode workout

                          250 deadlift x5
                          135 push press x5
                          135 front squat x5
                          burpee pull ups (chest to bar) x5

                          but was too weak from presses this morning to attempt. I think I might aim for Christmas eve or the following Monday after a couple days of rest

                          so instead I did some low rep deadlifts 270-330#, practiced a couple sets of front squats and sumo deadlifts and did some burpee pull ups for the first time (super fun! you feel like an animal)

                          • Stronglifts 5x5 program A today. I also did a HIIT session of max effort for 30 seconds, then 90 seconds active rest. Repeated 8 times. Hit a max pulse of 223 while average was 149. A PT didn't think it was right as it would have sent me to the hospital. I'm 42 years old...

                            Any one else noticed higher max pulse?
                            Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.
