Wendler 5/3/1 Cycle 6 Week 3
- Misc. clean/snatch drills w/bar
- 135 lbs: 2 x hang, 2 x full
- 150 lbs: 1 x hang, 1 x full
- 185 lbs: 1 x hang, 1 x full
- 205 lbs: 0 x hang, 1 x hang (PR!), 1 x full
- 215 lbs: 0 x full (3 missed attempts)
Added a little to my hang clean PR. Couldn’t PR the full clean. I think it was more of a psychological block than physical. For some reason, I started pulling with my arms instead of getting the hips into it.
- Deadlift: 355 x 1+: 4 (weight/rep PR)
- Press: 137.5 x 1+: 3
- Press 75lbs: 10, 10, 10, 10, 10
I’m pretty sure 355 x 4 on the deadlift is the most weight I’ve ever done for reps so I guess that counts as a PR. Even better, I had to change the y-axis max on my Excel plot of estimated 1 RM because this exceeded my previously configured max of 400. It’s always a good day when I have to change the y-axis max due to new territory
The press result was bad. This cycle was a reset on the press and this entire cycle it has lagged behind the last time I did these exact same weights in December/January. Next week, I am going to test my maxes on all lifts. Unless something spectacular happens with the press, I think starting with the next cycle I will do a GSLP style linear progression for the press (and maybe bench).
RushFit Explosive Power Training DVD
This DVD was just awesome. Lots of jumping around. Basically burpees on acid. I could feel my heart racing throughout and it just felt like these moves could really have some great transfer over to everything athletic that I do. This is exactly what I wanted this DVD set for — some conditioning plus filling in some holes in my current program.
