Training 10-30-07

Today I did the CrossFit warmup before my workout. As promised of CrossFit stuff in general, it looked easy on paper, but I was sweating and out of breath by the end of the 2nd round (of 3 total). Anyway, I think I'm going to make it a habit to start off with the CrossFit warmup. It'll be a step towards building a better conditioning base and, eventually, moving to doing the CrossFit WOD and maybe one lift afterwards.


Front Squat
5 x 205
2 x 205
3 x 205
4 x 205
2 x 205
10 x 135

Overhead Press
2 x 5 x 130
2 x 4 x 130
3 x 130

Bent Over Barbell Row
5 x 5 x 165

4 x 5 x 165
4 x 165

Pull-down crunch
(sets of 10) 72, 96, 120, 144, 156, 168

Front Squats, like Squats yesterday, were disappointing. It's frustrating to suck when I know I can do better than this. Looks like deload here, too. 195 on Squats and 175 on Front Squats, then hopefully moving up quickly.

Overhead Press actually regressed from last time, too. It would be easy to blame my sub-par performance on being tired from the warmup. But no excuses. 5 x 5 next time. Period.

Did a bit better on Bent Over Barbell Row. Still need to get the form down, and focus on getting the bar all the way up to my chest.

Dips were good, and I might have been able to get the last one if I'd just pushed a little harder. ARGH. Frustrating workout overall. I'll get it next time.
