My Strength Done And It Was Rough!

Wednesday, Oct 21, 2020
Today was one of those really challenging days. My body didn’t want to support any weight. I didn’t feel any connection to it and I am tired. I know these days are the days that can make me better though, so I fought through the weakness the best I could The squats were a nice heavy 255 pounds. Even the warm up set at 135 felt crushing though so I knew it was gonna be tough.

My Strength Stuff Wasn't As Miserable Today

Monday, Oct 19, 2020
I don’t have any clue as to why but for the past week or two my strength stuff has been really tough. It’s been a struggle to get through the stuff. My knees have been feeling run down a bit from hitting WODs often with weighted step ups. The work with dumbbell versions of WODs have been mentally running me down a bit since those are mostly new or movements or ones I haven’t done in years.

I Really Didn't Feel Like Lifting Or A WOD Today But I Did Them And I Am Happy With The Results

Tuesday, Oct 13, 2020
Some times those days occur where you really just don’t feel like doing jack shit. Today was one of those days but I forced myself to stop being lazy and do my strength and felt better after that. Later on A knocked out today’s WOD with pretty good results. The squats were a bit slower than normal today and the 240 pounds felt extremely heavy. I managed to eek out my sets plus the extra two to make it five sets of five that that weight.

Movements I Was Never Comfortable With

Monday, Oct 12, 2020
Today it clicked that it was only the second time now that I have done weighted step ups with dumbbells in my hands. They were programmed often enough in the old gym but I always did unweighted ones because the lighting was bad and I just wasn’t comfortable visually with them. Here at home while the lighting still isn’t ideal I have been trying to do those things that I haven’t done before.

Got My Strength And A WOD In This Morning Before The Eagles Game

Sunday, Oct 11, 2020
Today was strength day so I had to get that in early this morning in case the likely need to partake in adult beverages while watching the Eagles fuck up should occur. The day started with squats as always. They were a nice, fun, moderately weighted 235 pounds. my knee and ankle on my left foot feel wonky today so I wasn’t sure how that would go. I tripped over something near the door out to the garage door and flew out it last night landed on my feet but awkwardly.

Lifting Went Surprisingly Well After Tough Double WODs Yesterday

Wednesday, Oct 7, 2020
I Woke up tired today with somewhat achy knees and hips this morning. It’s my own fault for doubling up on WODs yesterday that both involved many dead lifts and hang cleans and burpees over the bar. I didn’t kill myself on the WODs really as it’s been a while since I used a barbell for the WOD but I did push it a bit, especially for the second WOD I did.

Awesome Day For Strength And A WOD Today

Saturday, Oct 3, 2020
I had no idea today how the strength would go having done a WOD last night with 50 dead lifts at 175 and 50 strict presses at 75. I should have gone heavier for both movements in that WOD in hindsight but I wanted to make every 30 seconds of reps and had no idea where I should be. My legs were tired today but I still managed to knock out the back squats at 215 pounds.

I'm Definitely Back In The Swing Of Things With My Strength Now

Tuesday, Sep 29, 2020
Although I have been doing my strength work for the past week there has been some reluctance in me wondering if I should do it or rest or back off a bit. Today’s the first day since starting back up I haven’t felt any hesitation at all. I am thankful to have that feeling back. While I love doing the WODs the strength is what gives me inner peace with myself.

Giving Twenty Rep Back Squats Another Go

Monday, Sep 28, 2020
With fall arriving it is and will stay cooler for a while now. I assume the spring heat prematurely killed my front squats after I’d failed the back squats in the spring. That was before we decided to put our old air conditioner into the garage window. While when I did the twenty rep squats before it didn’t really help with strength it certainly improved my endurance for squat movements and just leg movements in general.

Strength And A Row Today

Sunday, Sep 27, 2020
My strength for today was all light but it’s the program and I reset all my weights after maxing recently. The squats were 3 sets of five at 200. Being that they were light, they felt and and looked really good so I decided to through in two extra sets to make it 5x5. The extra work while it’s lighter seems to be really helpful for me. Maybe next year I’ll look into a maybe more intense program.

I Decided To Try A Heavy Front Squat Today

Saturday, Sep 26, 2020
A heavy single front squat is one of the things the things I’ve been meaning to try out. My original intention was to do it the same week I did the Crossfit totals but due to my quad I thought it would be best not to push it. Today was the day to do the front squats among other things since it’s rainy outside and we’re not doing anything else. I was optimistic that I could get up near 260ish.

Strength And A WOD Felt Great Today

Wednesday, Sep 23, 2020
My strength for today was all light stuff for now but it really did end up feeling great. I really felt like I was moving well and cleanly. Don’t be confused by that because if I am not moving well I would call it a day and try again next time. Thankfully that’s a rare issue. The squats felt great and I feel like I have improved my form with them even more.

Feels Like I'm Back To One Hundred Percent

Monday, Sep 21, 2020
Even though my leg felt much better last week I was still having the occasional tightness. Essentially even right after my quad popped I had full mobility, just a lot of discomfort but that slowly improved. Last week I only managed one or two WODs and we did our Crossfit total. I didn’t want to risk fucking up my leg so we could go out hiking / geocaching but that didn’t really happen as Molly was mad that the sun was dimmed.

Fuck It, I Tried Leggings For My Workout Today

Monday, Sep 21, 2020
The other thing about today that was a first but will definitely not be a last is I figured out a solution to the garage being a bit cooler. Sweatpants just don’t cut it. They’re too thick, too lose and just get in the way and distract me so much that they did more harm than good. I’ve noticed guys in videos wearing leggings lifting and such and a few people at the old gym did at times.

Quad Feels Good So I Went For My Crossfit Total Today

Tuesday, Sep 15, 2020
My quad feels pretty good today. Still a little weakness and tightness but that’s to be expected. It’ll slowly improve over time but it’s something I can work with for now. Due to the above Although I did my Crossfit total today it wasn’t really all out maxes in anyway. It was just relatively heavy singles for this particular day. I just wanted to get under heavy weight to see how it felt and to encourage Molly to push herself when she does her total.

Quad Felt Good So I Went For Some Moderate Weighted Back Squats Today

Sunday, Sep 13, 2020
My quad has been progressively feeling better since Monday’s popping incident. Friday’s 95 pound back squats seem to actually help if anything. I had planned on doing more at a heavier weight yesterday but my brain got side tracked so I ended up not doing that. The squats them self felt really good with a nice stretch as the weight slowly increased. I worked up to 225 pounds for 5x3 and for the most part it felt great other than a sloppy rep or two.

Felt Good To Do Some Light Back Squats With The Bar Today

Friday, Sep 11, 2020
Today my quad is feeling even better than it has been feeling so I decided to give some light barbell back squats a go. I did only 95 pounds today and I have to say it felt really, really good. Maybe I wasn’t hitting rock bottom like I typically do but that was not my intention today. My goal was to test it out and see how it felt and looked.

Some Optimism About My Quad

Wednesday, Sep 9, 2020
The other day mid squat I had a popping sensation deep in my leg and some soreness and weakness after that. Of course I had immediately stopped. Thinking back now it was more of the feeling you get when your knee pops or some other joint. Almost all the time that leaves it feeling better but Once in a blue moon it feels worse. Almost like it needed to crack more but it’s unable to.

Looks Like Some Rest Days Now

Tuesday, Sep 8, 2020
Yesterday’s Strength did not go well. It felt good and the squats were only 205 pounds. They felt light and good but I felt like I was maybe compensating a bit for rolling my ankle yesterday doing sandbag hop overs. The 2nd rep of the second working set it happened. I felt a pop deep in my quad on the opposite side from the rolled ankle. It’s towards the outside

Today's Strength Went Well But It Was Light So It Should Have

Thursday, Sep 3, 2020
It was a nice change of pace from the past couple of weeks to say the least. Having failed bench press the last bench session and back squats last session too they were both lighter weights. I feel like it might be the best of timing too since we’re doing Crossfit totals and other maxes in a week or two to get current baselines. The squats I did were at only 195 pounds today.

Made The First Set Of Squats At 270 Pounds.

Tuesday, Sep 1, 2020
Sometimes even a failure is a success. Let me preface this whole post with the fact that I didn’t really have too high of a hopes for today given that my piriformis has been somewhat angry. That started a week or two ago when my foot slipped out from under me doing lunges. It’s getting better with stretching and movement seems to help it more than doing nothing. I figured I could at least try today’s planned strength and sort of feel it out on the warm up sets.

Today I Learned Why You Need To Wait To Turn On A Refrigerator After Moving It

Monday, Aug 31, 2020
I have known since I was fairly young that you shouldn’t turn a fridge on after it’s been laying down since my parents bought from someone at my grandfather’s work that was moving. We took the old one we had in the kitchen down in the basement and put the new in the kitchen after they took it off the truck. It ran but never got cold. We learned from someone after that that you shouldn’t lay it down.

Crushed The Sets Of Squats At My Old Trinium One Rep Max!

Sunday, Aug 30, 2020
Today I am feeling really good and accomplished about my strength session. It has been a long time coming to make it to this mile stone with a few false starts on the way here. There were several mental blocks that helped prevent me from reaching this long time goal but I finally got it. it all started out with the big positive not for today’s strength work. I was set to do my old Crossfit Trinium one rep max weight for three sets of five.

Made Heavy Squats Today, Failed Bench, I'm Not Mad

Friday, Aug 28, 2020
First things first as far as lifting today I wasn’t really feeling like it. It’s hot and humid, I was hungry and didn’t really sleep enough last night thanks to alcohol from Joy’s with supper. Naturally feeling this way today was set to be an at least somewhat heavy day for my squats and bench press. I had accepted the fact that I may fail one or both of these lifts today and was fine with it.

Heavy Squats Felt Light Today

Wednesday, Aug 26, 2020
Today was was of those strange days when it comes to strength where it just feels light. I really wish that could happen more often so I wouldn’t overthink it when it when the weight gets heavier. First up were the squats at 255 pounds. For repping, especially five reps a set this is a relatively heavy weight for me. I’ve always had more trouble repping weights than I have had with heavy singles.

One Of Those Days

Monday, Aug 24, 2020
Today was definitely one of those days. You know the days where normal tasks seem to be a pretty good challenge. Mentally I am not here and I’m not really here physically too much either. It started out from waking up a bit early from some weird ass dream. There was some girl who I feel like I should know that had something wrong but wouldn’t say what it was. It’s left me with that off feeling all day.

Strength Felt Great Today After The Last Session Of Failures

Saturday, Aug 22, 2020
Today was a great day for my strength. Unlike the last session where even the light 135 warmup sets felt terrible and super heavy they, along with even the working sets felt great, light and explosive today. My back squats today at 245 felt pretty great save a couple of sloppy reps. Other than the couple of sloppy reps they were all fast and explosive and feeling pretty light. I had failed this weight the other day but made the decision that I would give it another go give than it’s a weight I fell I should be able to make just about any day.

Strength Felt Excellent Today

Tuesday, Aug 18, 2020
I woke up early today and well rested. It’s been a while. Finally we’ve been able to sleep with just the fan instead of the air conditioner which always allows me to have a better night’s sleep. The air conditioner is nice to make it more tolerable but the sound of them tends to keep me awake or annoy me a bit 95% of the time. The fan is quiet on low and it lets some of the outside noises in which tend to relax me.

I've Been Thinking Maybe I Should Try A Belt For Lifting

Monday, Aug 17, 2020
I was watching lifting videos this morning and I noticed the belt and it dawned on me that I have never used one. I haven’t even tried using one since I never felt the need. It’s kind of hard to even test out using one if you don’t have one. It just never occurred to me before to even consider getting one thinking it would be like the other things I was told I’d need for Crossfit.

Interesting Strength Day Today Went Much Better Than I Actually Expected

Sunday, Aug 16, 2020
I have to admit I didn’t really have any high expectations for my strength workout today. Shortly before I was going to do it part of my one quad just suddenly started to cramp a bit. That just came right out of the blue and have no idea where it came from. I took a little time to stretch and warm up a little bit to felt things out. See I do stretch and warm up if I feel I need to!

Strength Felt Great Today Then Brought in The New Toys

Friday, Aug 14, 2020
I woke up pretty early today so I did my strength work somewhat early in the morning since I already had my coffee for the day. Not as early as I would have liked to have done it but I feel like the right thing to do is be respectful of the neighbors. I don’t know what they can here but we don’t hear much from them. Today was the first time in I have no idea how long that the air conditioner wasn’t necessary while doing my strength.

Strength Went Great Today

Wednesday, Jul 29, 2020
I didn’t sleep all that well last night. I don’t know why but it was just one of those nights where I laid there in bed just awake. My brain wouldn’t shut off. That’s the story of my life though. It’s been a little better lately but After a couple of hours I just got up for a while. I was anticipating that putting a damper on my strength work today.

Heavy Front Squat Single Felt Great!

Tuesday, Jul 28, 2020
Continuing with trying to get heavy base lines for where my strength is at this moment I decided to do a heavyish single front squat today. I stopped at 255. It looked and felt really good. Didn’t even feel all that heavy to me. I stopped there for the day even though I felt like there was more in the tank. Hell I felt like I could possibly meet or surpass my all time max at 273.

Decided To Go For A Crossfit Total

Saturday, Jul 25, 2020
I decided to go for a Crossfit total this weekend. It’s been well over a year since I’ve had current numbers and I thought I needed to see where I stand. We’re going to do it again in September but I did it today. I wasn’t really feeling it today but went for it anyways and I am happy I did. I wasn’t going for all out maxes but instead I was going for heavy for today singles.

Made It!

Thursday, Jul 23, 2020
Today with my strength it was time to squat heavy again. I wasn’t really feeling it at all today but I had to give it the best effort I could. The heat and humidity is slowly running me down this year I think. I tried a warm up set with out the air conditioner but quickly realized that wasn’t a good idea as it was so humid the bar was already feeling damp.

One Step Closer

Tuesday, Jul 21, 2020
I’m finally feeling like I am making progress with my squats again. Last time I made progress was with lots of heavy singles and back off sets but now I am just doing 3 x 5. I’ve always preferred small sets but there’s no harm in trying something different. I’d failed a couple of times in the past and worked back up to it. Finally the other day I smashed through my sets at 255.

I Finally Squatted 255 For 3 x 5

Sunday, Jul 19, 2020
First things first I did not sleep well last night and have been tired all morning so I didn’t have all that much hope for my strength today. It’s also pretty hot out already at 9ish in the morning. I turned the air on but still I didn’t want to wait around too long. It was definitely more humid than yesterday was. The warm up sets felt pretty good although a lot slower today than last time.

Hot Today But Strength Felt Great

Friday, Jul 17, 2020
Today started off pretty hot but thankfully the humidity isn’t that bad yet . That will change this weekend but it feels okay for now. I started off the my squats at 250 pounds. They felt pretty great today and honestly pretty easy. Very doable and looked very explosive. This is in the ballpark of where I’ve been getting hung up. The power cleans at 170 felt great. Very explosive. Very fast elbows and looked really good.

Strength Felt Surprising Good Today

Wednesday, Jul 15, 2020
I just wasn’t sure how the strength would go today. My knee is a bit angry from yesterday’s WOD in which I did several hundred hop overs over the sandbag. No matter what those are always awkward for me. I would tend to guess it’s more the vision than anything. Lets see I am hopping back and forth sideways over an object I can’t really tell how close I am to it with really only any functional vision on one side from one eye.

Failed Twenty Rep Front Squat At 170 But Not Because Of Weight

Sunday, Jul 12, 2020
I skipped it last week thinking I may do a heavy single or x age body weight back squats for my birthday so I wanted to be fresh for that. I decided not to do either of those so I picked up where I left off with the 20 rep squats. Today I was doing 170 pounds. I didn’t fail because of weight. Hell I wasn’t even slowing down on the squats.

Not Quite As Humid So I Did My Strength This Morning

Monday, Jun 29, 2020
After slacking yesterday I decided I had to do my strength. It wasn’t too bad this morning heat and humidity wise. A little warm for my liking but tolerable at least. I’d love to be able to do the workouts early in the morning but having neighbors attached I don’t want to be that noisy asshole. It’s a matter of respect. Treat others better than you expect to be treated.

Humid This Morning But Squats And Bench Felt Pretty Good

Saturday, Jun 27, 2020
I woke up this morning and peaked at the weather radar before getting out of bed and saw there were some weakening thunderstorms approaching. I got dressed and grabbed the cushions off the patio furniture and brought them in. By the time I got my coffee after finishing that the rain started. That was cutting it a little close. After drinking some coffee and it getting a little later in the morning I decided to work on my strength that I skipped over yesterday while sitting in the living room waiting for a package that I may have to sign for.

Heat And Humidity Equals Disappointing Double Failure In My Strength Today.

Monday, Jun 22, 2020
I would be lying if I’d say I am surprised at failing today but I would also be in denial if I would say it still didn’t disappoint me. The reality of it is for me I know summer kills me. It always has affected me even as a small child playing. The cold is something I can tolerate more than most people though. Today the dew point is back up to the 70 degree area which seems to be where it really starts to rear it’s ugly head in how it adversely influences my ability to stay reasonably cool.

Unplanned, Unexpected Couple Of Days Break From Working Out But Back At It now

Sunday, Jun 21, 2020
Sometimes life throws the unexpected at you and the only thing you can really do is take it for what it is and go with the flow. I’ve had a good run consistently working out basically daily and was felling really good about it.. Last week our lights started flickering but then it went away. We figured it had something to do with the transformer that blew nearby over the weekend.

Did Part Of My Strength Then Destroyed My Grip In A WOD Today

Wednesday, Jun 17, 2020
I definitely had a good but rough day at the home gym today. My strength today was to be heaviest squats, moderate strict presses and light dead lifts. I just reset the weights on those. I had failed the dead lifts last week. The squats were at 240. This to me is a moderately heavy weight. Today it didn’t feel heavy at all. It felt great for sure. My technique has so greatly improved it’s amazing.

My Legs Will Hate Me Tomorrow After Today In The Garage Gym

Monday, Jun 15, 2020
Today, fairly early in the morning I worked through my normal strength that was scheduled for this day. It went well., really well for me. It started out with with some nice moderately weighted back squats to get me warmed up. They felt really, really good today! I did them at 230 pounds today which is around where they typically start feeling heavier but that turned out to not the case at all today.

Killed Today's Strength Then Did A Mentally Tough WOD

Saturday, Jun 13, 2020
Yesterday I didn’t end up doing a WOD at all. My calves were very crampy so I erred on the side of caution and rested and stretched them. I’m sure I was just dehydrated from the recent heat and humidity and additionally drinking copious amounts of alcohol Thursday night. I’d always rather take a rest day now than exasperate an unknown injury. I did do very heavy dead lifts for me in the heat on Thursday.

Retried Yesterday's Strength

Thursday, Jun 11, 2020
I was very disappointed with failing the back squats yesterday early on and knew they were rather light and I only failed because of sweat allowing the bar to shift a bit. Yesterday and even early this morning there was a ridiculously high tropical humidity. It was the kind where sweating does absolutely no good. It just makes your skin wet. Towards late morning the dew point had been slowly falling from around 75 to 70.

Failed Squat From The Humidity Today

Wednesday, Jun 10, 2020
It wasn’t all that bad when I woke up this morning. pretty humid but tolerable. As the morning went on the temperature has increased over time. I did a lot of debating in my head on whether I wanted to attempt my strength work today or push it back a day or two when it’s cooler and less humid About 9:00 I decided it was time to go do my strength work for today.

Weird Day In The Garage Gym

Tuesday, Jun 9, 2020
Today was one of those days in the Garage gym that seem to be destined to be complete failures with everything going wrong that could but at least in this case it worked out okay all things considered. I did manage to complete two WODs today. The first one was just back squats and running 400 meters. As I would expect the business along the alley once again decided that a truck with a trailer needed to stop and sit in the road blocking most of it.

Two Good Days In The Home Gym

Monday, Jun 8, 2020
Even a bad day lifting is better than a day with no lifting but Sunday and today were two great days for lifting and general fitness to boot. Yesterday I was feeling pretty tired but I decided to get off my lazy ass and go do some stuff in the garage. I started out with this week’s 20 rep front squats. I did them at 150 pounds this week and I don’t think they could have felt any better than they did.

Back To Front Squatting 135 In A Wod

Thursday, May 28, 2020
It’s been quite a while since I have used 135 pounds for front squats in a WOD setting. If I had to give an estimate it would have to be around two years since I’ve done so since. It wasn’t uncommon for me to use it in at the old gym depending on the WOD and what else the WOD would entail. I had gotten to the point that I might go lighter to go faster or of my wrist was acting up.

I Failed The 255 Pound Squats Again

Wednesday, May 27, 2020
Once again today I was supposed to do back squats at 255 pound and once again I failed at it. I failed the last rep of the first set this time. Honesty this time around I don’t feel it was a strength issue at all though, today was the first humid day of the year or at least the first humid day I had to lift heavy. The heat kills me but even more so the humidity does.

Back At The Twenty Rep Front Squats

Monday, May 11, 2020
I started at the weekly 20 rep front squats a few weeks ago at 95 pounds after finally failing at the back squats. With the back squats I got a lot further along that I anticipated I would. I’m hoping I hit body weight with the front squats too and it’s certainly possible. Once I got the mobility for front squats I’ve been able to hit a high percentage of my back squats max.

We Did A Dead Lift WOD Outside Today

It got reasonably nice outside today with a temperature near 70 and the sun was shining. The WOD for today was a sort of a dead lift ladder with a 100 meter run between sets so it was the perfect one to do out in the backyard. It was nice to be able to just drop the last rep of the dead lifts. I miss being able to drop it but don’t want to destroy our garage floor or potentially annoy the neighbors too much.

I Failed The 255 Pound Squats But Crushed The 190 Pound Bench Press Today

Wednesday, Apr 29, 2020
Although I failed the back squat at two hundred fifty five pounds today for 3x5 I am not all that disappointed. I didn’t think that I would get through the 245 or 250 the past two sessions but I did. Today felt doable but just soul crushing having the weight on my back. I’m just not used to heavy weight there right now. Maybe I need to add in some heavy walk outs.

I Made It Through The Squats At 250 Pounds Today For 3x5

Monday, Apr 27, 2020
These squats aren’t getting any easier, that’s for damn sure. The weight is feeling heavier than ever and it’s getting mentally tougher but I am truly enjoying pushing myself in a different way than I have before. With the frequent squatting my technique is drastically improving. That was expected of course because with anything more frequent practice helps improve things. The tendency to want to collapse forward a bit has all but disappeared.

Squats Get More Doable But Never Feel lighter

Saturday, Apr 25, 2020
My lifting program had be doing back squats at 245 5x3 today and although I know I can do it it still feels heavy as fuck. Your body screams at you that this shit is too heavy. I did the squats and got through them. They felt slow but the video shows them being pretty quick still. The fact that I did a WOD with high reps of sandbag step ups yesterday didn’t help matters nor did the fact that I stepped up oln a 24 inch box rather than the normal 20 inches that I’m used to.

20 Rep Squats Fail At 205 pounds

Monday, Mar 30, 2020
I failed hard at about rep 7 of my 20 rep back squats doing 205 pounds today. I couldn’t possibly say I’m not disappointed in this, especially after last week felt so good but it is what it is. The last rep was too sloppy.. Really It was a shitty rep so I racked it and aborted there. Started back at 95 pounds for front squats to see where that brings me.

Some Days Lifts Just Don't Feel Right

Sunday, Mar 29, 2020
Today was another cool dreary day and my ass has been dragging since I woke up. It happens sometimes. I thought I slept well and my Garmin seems to think I did too but I just have been feeling exhausted all day. We’ll blame it on the weather. I have the stuffy head thing going on from the clouds of pollen out there right now and that is not improving anything with how I’m feeling.

I Made It To Body Weight For My Twenty Rep Squats

Sunday, Mar 22, 2020
I did my twenty rep squats today and couldn’t be more ecstatic with how it’s gone the past few weeks. Normally I do it Mondays but I am not going to bullshit myself or anyone else. With the potential snow storm I am going to probably be up all night tonight so I thought it would be smart to o the squats while I am well rested. The first month or so was a struggle with the leg burn and breath but breath still runs out.

Almost To Body Weight For My Twenty Rep Squats

Monday, Mar 16, 2020
Today went surprisingly well for what ended up being more less a rest day other than my normal Monday 20 rep back squat program from street parking that I thought I’d try out.. I started way back at 135 pounds since high reps have never been my thing. I’ve always had a more challenging time with higher reps of squats for some reason so this has been going surprisingly well.

Can't Always Go By How It Feels

Sunday, Sep 29, 2019
I decided I’d do Street Parking power WOD today. It called for 8 heavy back squats with 90 seconds in between and increasing weight a little each time.. warming up felt heavy as hell. 185 felt like 90% but I knew I couldn’t have lost 100 pounds in that time. Started working at 235 adding 5 pounds each rep. All except for the sixth rep where I got a bit out of position felt very explosive.
