Fitness Log 2013-10-08: Squat, Good Mornings, Rowing


  • 45 lbs x 5, 135 x 5, 165 x 5, 190 x 3

I decided to go for sorta-5/3/1 for squats.  My plan is to do Wendler 5/3/1 as written but only for squats and to skip the deload week.  I found that 5/3/1 worked okay for squats so I figure I will try to milk it some more until I come up with something better.

Good Mornings

  • 45 x 5, 95 x 5, 135 x 5, 150 x 5, 165 x 5, 180 x 5

I like these and should do them more often.

Round Time

4 02:01.1
Total 07:48.9
Ave 01:57.2

I’ve noticed a phenomenon where the first 2 minutes (+/- 30 seconds) of rowing, running, etc., I can sustain a certain pace but then hit a wall where I then struggle at a much slower pace.  The interesting thing about this is that the initial faster pace feels easy up until the wall.  I would guess this is a case where some energy system is being depleted.  This occurs whether I am going straight through (such as 2k row) or doing intervals.  Even with 1 minute rests, I do not recover for the subsequent intervals.  It would be interesting to figure out what the limitation is and how to train it.
