We had a great long weekend in Chattanooga, TN. Lots of fun with the family and great cheat food. I had the best wings I’ve ever tasted at a place called Sticky Fingers. I may have to order some of their rub. Lift big, eat big, right? 🙂
Coming back to the gym Monday was a little tough, but I got myself out of bed and went. We worked on the push press and jerks. No big lifts to report from Monday. The workout was this:
I only got 113 reps, but considering I was coming off vacation and 3 days of bad eating I’ll take it. On to today (Tuesday)…
Yet another Front Squat 3 Rep Max PR!! Let’s recap real quick. Remember last week I was excited to get 225lbs. The time before that I was excited to get 220, but wondered if I could have gotten 225. Today I got 230!! I’m really excited to see these numbers continually going up. Today we found our 3 rep max and then did 2 sets of 5 at 90%. Those two sets of five were SUPER heavy and really tough. I’ll be looking for 240 next time I think! 🙂
The workout today was another good one:
I was shooting for 6 rounds, but the Toes to Bar really slowed me down after the first two rounds. I got the overhead squats all unbroken except for round 4 when I dropped the weight after the 5th rep. I was happy that the OH Squats felt great since I have struggled with them in the past. I ended up with 5 complete rounds and 12 reps. Not too bad.
I am running Wades Big Adventure here in Memphis this weekend. It’s an 18 mile race. I’m not planning on killing it, but I’m excited to run some distance and see how I feel running. We’ll see.
