2013-06-14 Fitness Log: Press, Front Squat, TGU

Press

  • 45 x 5
  • 65 x 5
  • 95 x 3
  • 105 x 1
  • 115 x 5
  • 115 x 5
  • 115 x 5+ : 10 (rep PR?)

First day of returning to the GSLP style press.  10 reps was exactly what I was shooting for so that is good.  As far as I can tell from my records, this is a rep PR at this weight and beats out what I had at 115 back on GSLP.  That’s kinda cool because it implies some progress.

Front Squat

  • 115 x 5
  • 135 x 5
  • 165 x 5
  • 195 x 5
  • 215 x 3
  • 225 x 2
  • 240 x 1
  • 255 x 0 : Got stuck halfway up and hung out there for a while trying to push through.

No PR but still some good work.  The 255 felt crushingly heavy.  I thought to myself while standing there with it in the rack position “geez, how do people ever actually clean this much without crushing themselves?”.  Then I realized, I used to think that about 205 and weights even lighter than that.  Progress!

Turkish Get-Up

5 minutes – 1 pood/16 kg

  • 4 reps right, 4 reps left (alternating)

This was a pilot attempt at adding in the RKC Program Minimum after my main lifts.  I thought it went pretty well!
