Strength Shop Cycle 1-14-11




http://thestrengthshop.blogspot.com/2009/12/new-cycle-get-on-board.html

1.Push Press - 135x5, 155x5, 185x5, 205x5(pr)
2.Muscle Ups 3 x 3 - crappy at these now
3a. bar Dips 3 sets submax-12, 11, 9
3b. DB Row- 88lb kb + 40lb chain 3 sets submax-12, 11, 9
4.90lb Sandbag 200m zercher run - 2:53 and back 200m run w/ sandbag on shoulder - 4:39 total

I'm learning to love to hate sandbags.  That Zercher run was tougher then I thought. I'm still in the process of deciding if this will be the cycle I stick with, but looks good so far. I happy with today. Pushed me to do some things I wouldn't have otherwise done, yet its exactly the kind of work I want to get in. Cut out the sprints due to time constraints. Going to contact Matt about it, and see if I can't pick his brains to be sure the cycle is inline with my goals. I'm also considering his Warrior Cycle which starts at the bottom of this page: http://www.tssathletics.com/1/previous/7.html Going to examine them closer over the next few days.

1-11-11

Bench - 135x5, 165x4, 185x3, 205, 220x3 (PR) f on 4th
Weighted Dip - 25x5, 45x5, 60x3 (PR), 4th was shallow, f on 5th

AMRAP in 3 min:

1 Sandbag Clean 90lb + 1 burpee = 1 rep

21

Should have made that 5 min. But I'm a metcon retard for now.

Made a 90lb and 165lb sandbag today. Used a seabag and a combo of sand and mulch to fill out the rest of the bag. Should be fun to do some strongman type metcons with those puppies. Farted around with the 165lb bag and that is a brute. It'll be good for shelving it for reps like an atlas stone and doing shuttle runs. Thats about it for now. Tried to clean it but that was rough. A little more practice and I think I'll be able to clean it. Tried to put it overhead from on top of one shoulder and that wasn't happening.
