  • Primal Challenge Journal (sax)



    My goals:

    Get stronger. Gain some lean body mass. Have more energy.


    I plan to achieve these by:

    Following the primal blueprint and concentrating on aspects of lifting heavy weights occasionally, eating primal and getting lots of rest.

      8/5


      B: sax breakfast bowl

      S: 2 boiled eggs

      L: heirloom tomato gazpacho (i have the recipe if anyone wants it)

      S: boiled egg, cashews

      D: bratwurst, grilled onions, grilled summer squash, grilled heirloom tomato


      WOD:

      shoulder press 5,5

      115, 120(PR)


      This was a 5x5 workout, but I am somewhat following the CrossFit Strength Bias prescription so when you get a new PR, you stop there. 5 reps of shoulder press at 120 is my new PR.


      Getting to bed here in the next 15 minutes, which will put me before 10pm.

        8/6


        B: sax breakfast bowl

        L: bratwurst, grilled onions, grilled summer squash, grilled heirloom tomato (leftovers)

        S: boiled egg, apple, almonds

        D: hamburger (w/ bacon, cheese, grilled onion, avocado, heirloom tomato and roasted jalopeno), mixed green salad w/cucumber and heirloom tomato


        WOD:

        deadlift 5,5

        275, 295


        Again, this was a 5x5, but 295 is a PR for me by 10lbs, so I shut it down there.


        Finished with:

        15-12-9 reps of

        handstand push-up

        chest to bar pull-up


        7:15


        Full ROM head-to-floor HSPU and a new PR in deadlift. I am certainly feeling stronger!


        It's pretty late so I won't get to bed until about 15 or 20 after 10. Not too bad.
