As always when I am in a "Globo" gym, I get a lot of questions. Before i get to that, I started the morning off with:
YES!!! I was scanning the area, this place is big....and I saw....TWO Concept 2 Rowers....ran and jumped on 1 for a good warm up. It was probably the worst machine i have used. I looked good but needed oil, badly! After this I headed up to an area far from authority and away from most people. There was one kid in there. And for the first 5 minutes he STARED at me. He then asked, "How long have you been working out?" I said, "Since High school." How di you answer that question? It developed of course into a talk about CrossFit and during the conversation I did:
3 Rep Power Clean Touch and Go
185 x 3
205 x 3
225 x 3
245 x 3
265 x 2
I had no chalk and was also very worried to drop the weight because it is carpet and they were metal plates. I could have got 3 reps but I was worried about the potential of dropping the weight, especially since I was on the 2nd floor. After the talk I was getting ready for a quick WOD and asked the kid to join in, modified of course. He did 21-15-9 seated Row and Hand Release Push ups. I did:
Power Clean 155#
Bench Press 135#
The kid did it in 3:44. I had to run out in order to get to the store and buy some stuff for the Pot Luck we were having at work. a big snow storm is coming and everyone wanted Pita Chips and fruit. Most of the things we have for the pot luck is actually pretty Paleo friendly. I will be eating as much of the good stuff as possible and probably some hummus and pita chips.
I will be getting home from work today at a decent hour and am excited to get some more work in tonight! Get Better!
Tonight after dinner I went downstairs and hit some Deads:
10 Rep Deadlift
275 x 10
295 x 10
315 x 10
345 x 10
375 x 10
395 x 6
I was pretty upset because 395 felt heavy but I thought I could get 10....but in the muddle of it I got a call and thought it could be something with the business so I stopped and grabbed it at 6...it may have been a saving grace though. I was beat so up though that I went into the WOD:
I was going to do 8 Rds but my hammies started to give out and I thought about saving myself to be able to work tomorrow instead of being completely trashed.
