March 6th: http://www.liftheavyrunlong.com/?p=707 Back Squat 4RM 250#. Today, 275#. Boom!
- Back Squat 4RM; 4 x 4 @ 90%
The only bad thing about getting stronger and lifting more weight is that those 90% reps get really tough! 🙂 Worked up to 275#. I went from 225# right to 275#. I was feeling great this morning, and in the mood to lift.
Then, “Annie” was on the schedule. That’s right, I did GHD sit ups yesterday, and more sit ups today. Whatever…
- Double Unders
- Sit Ups
6:55. My PR is 6:28, and I’m beginning to question that. All the Double Unders were unbroken. I guess I should have done my sit ups faster. Sheesh…
Then I cashed out with a Tabata Row.
Kit asked me on Facebook what my all around shoe for Crossfit was. Here they are:
Adidas weightlifting shoes. The cheap ones you can get for $90.00. Also, Inov-8 F-Lite 195’s. I’ve gone barefoot, Five Fingers, New Balance Minimus, and various other minimal shoes. Right now I’m giving the Inov-8’s a go. I like them. I wouldn’t run more than a couple miles in them, but they work great for Crossfit type workouts.
I have the Inov-8 F-Lite 195′s and like them a lot for running, I ran 30 miles in them a few weeks ago. I would have done 50 if I hadn’t messed up the ankle avoiding a muddy spot on the trail. I don’t know why I don’t like them in the gym.
