I should just express the countdown as a mathematical formula: T= 69 - x

okay, zero week thus far:

 

Monday (new Year's eve) I went to the gym and did 17.1 at Rx, because why not end the year with a little pathological self-assault?

 

I did it at Rx weight, but only a 10 inch box. It still took like an hour and resulted in the entertaining text exchange documented above. When I got to the 40- and 50-rep ranges I had to break it up into sets of 10 so I wouldn't die.

 

That being said, I had three big breakthroughs with this workout:

 

1: BOX JUMPS! Holy shit, I've finally figured these out. If I squat deeper than I think I should, and really focus on "pressing down" into the squat, when I release it I go flying upward, like a joke snake out of a can. Before I was trying to generate the momentum by pushing upward thru my calves and the balls of my feet, which is way, way less efficient.

 

2: Burpees: Last week I got to the point where I could jump my feet up to get back to starting position; this week's breakthrough was learning to time the drop forward so I "catch" my upper body and jump my feet out at the same time, rather than get my hands down and then put the feet back as two separate motions. I did it by accident the first time and tried to really focus on the mechanics of it for the rest of the workout, which is part of why it took so long. The only bad part is if you don't time it right, you "catch" your upper body with your face, and that is... sub-optimal.

 

3: I need way, way angrier music on my ipod, cause all this Phil Collins is NOT going to cut it. "Easy Lover" is a hell of a song, though.

 

Tuesday was new years, and I kept thinking I would go to the gym or for a hike, but never did. I was getting a bit of a cough, too. Anyway no workout.

 

Wednesday the workout cycle started over with a straight strength day. I had that thing again where my brain kept fighting me to not go to the gym, then when I got there it was like "oh, HERE? shit, why didn't you say so?". I don't understand my own psyche sometimes; it's like there's another person living in there.

 

Anyway, it was (mostly) leg day, I did some handstand work (some improvement there) and some hanging leg lifts, pull-ups, and then the leg stuff:

 

hip thrust 3 x 10 @70

leg press 3 x 8 @ 220 (bit more weight here, nice)

ham curl 3 x 10 @ 50 (can't seem to increase here. it's a weak link)

leg extension 3 x 12 @ 85 (more reps, but no weight increase)

 

Then I did 12 minutes on the rower. I was supposed to do :30 but I was starting to feel really bad, and by the time I got home I was full on sick with something - fever, chills, general grossness. Woke up in the night with a terrible sore throat. I slept until almost 11 am today. I was sure I'd gotten the flu.

 

Weirdly, now (1:30 pm) I feel almost fine; the acheyness and fever are gone and most of the sore throat, so maybe I just have some 24-hour virus thing. Still not going to work out today though. No one at the gym wants my germs and it's better to recover. I'm glad I'm one of those dorks who wipes down everything I touch with the disinfectant wipes the gym provides; I usually do it because I'm so violently sweaty, but at least I minimized my germ spreadage yesterday.

 

I'm going to sit on the couch and nap now so I can go large tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

JEEEEEEEEZUUUUUSSSSSS

That's super awesome getting those technique things tweaked, I bet that's going to help a lot. Also, if you need angry workout music, why not Metallica's Black album?

Still sick. Lost another day’s training (and general shit-getting-done-ness). Not pleased with the failure of my immune system. Hoping I’ll be better by tomorrow.

okay, it's monday and I am (mostly) back among the living. Gah. Basically lost a whole week, gym and otherwise.

 

I'm not going to work out today because it's still hard to breathe, but I'm going to go by the gym and schedule a workout with the trainer I'm going to work with for Thursday; I should be at 100% by then. I'll workout tomorrow at 75%. Tomorrow's goal will be getting my kick-up into a handstand right.

 

45 days. Eeek. Inconveniently timed plague is inconvenient. Could have been worse, though.

Also, I can’t figure out your jump at all.

 

the best way I can explain it is that I'm pressing down into a squat to put my hamstrings under load; then when I jump up, that load gets released and it propels me upward further than I would just from pushing up thru my calves and feet. It feels a bit like setting a bowstring.
