Deadlift needed to end early… bummer.

Thursday Today really didn’t go well at all. I was doing fine with the deadlifts but having some issues with choosing my belt.

Overhead Training Tuesday.

Tuesday Some things were good today… some not so much. I did decent weight on my presses but I had to resort to some split jerks that I was trying to avoid.

Front Squat Monday!

Monday Trying to get back into taking video and recording what I am doing so I can see progress and pitfalls. Front Squat Warmup 235lbs x 8 reps (whoops…

Finally able to train near normal since back injury.

This week I was able to train without too much pain… but I did skip a deadlift workout and tried to take it easy on anything back heavy. Here’s what I did this week. Monday I decided to skip the deadlift workout and get my Crossfit Open 14.

Finally back to posting again… This week was up and down!

So… I got hurt… So last week I hurt my back placing down the bar after a deadlift session with 455lbs for sets of 5. I just got loose… totally my fault. I have tried my best to remain calm and let myself recover.

Time to test my squat!

Did another great workout at MCCF. Check out today’s WOD! Do You Even Squat? Weightlifting Back Squat (5-3-2-1-1-1) Work up to getting a new 1 Rep Max (1 RM).  The majority of the time will be dedicated to getting a new 1 RM.

Great Thanksgiving Holiday!

Thursday We had a great Thanksgiving here. The Morehouse family was joined by: Tim Bald, Feisal Suleiman, Travis Lucas, and the Doug & Lisa Lucas. Terrific time. No training for me. Just lots of food and friendship.

Day before Thanksgiving. Update on lifting and such.

Last Week I had some GREAT training last week. Programming went really well. Tested my bench and hit 325lbs for a nice little PR. Squats are also getting more and more comfortable. Event training on Saturday was excellent.

Training going fairly well

Monday Bench Press 265lbs x 9 reps 245lbs until failure 225lbs until failure Pullups BW x 20 reps - not in a row obviously.

A new type of training… off season perhaps…?

Monday I don’t bench often… Bench Press 245lbs x 7 reps 215lbs until failure 195lbs until failure Okay… I can only do 4 pullups in a row. So I just took 20 second breaks and tried to knock them out as fast as possible.
