IKE

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody!

I believe this will be my fifth challenge with Nerd Fitness. For those who don't know me, I am a CrossFit junkie / comic book aficionado / (semi) paleo practitioner / government law enforcement guy.

Here's my main quest!

~ To get stronger and gain more muscle.

Side Quests:

~ Follow my Crossfit gym's Post WOD strength training program (at least) 2x week.

~ Run (at the minimum) of one mile per week.

~ Be in bed no later than 1:00 AM (possibly extended to 2:00 AM if necessary) each night.

Life Quest:

~ Finish Season 3 & 4 of Doctor Who!

Here's a link to the Jim Wendler's 5-3-1 strength training program that my gym is following:

A "Men's Fitness" article explaining the 5/3/1 method.

The philosophy is that you figure out your training percentage which consists of 90% of your 1 REP MAX. You then utilize percentages of your training weight on the four following lifts: Squat, Bench Press, Deadlift, and Shoulder Press.

Hey Cheech!

Yes, I finally got around to it. I plan to lift weights as much as possible, but sometimes things pop up. I'm good with the diet (for now!) but we'll see what happens...

My Deadlift 1 Rep Max is 345 so that made my training weight 210 lbs.

5x = 200

3x = 235

1x = 265

This is following Snatches and Clean & Jerk's from the regular CrossFit class!

Also, did a two mile run at the local park. The weather feels really breezy out here in H-Town.

Went to sleep around 1:30 AM last night which isn't that bad. I'm actually on a brief vacation from work!

You're right, Devyn!

I forgot to include that in my post. Yes, I went to a Parkour class with a pretty awesome Kender.

That evening of Parkour was probably the most fun I've had in awhile. What a dynamic form of fitness! I have strong admiration for those who devote and excell themselves in this practice. I'd love to do it again sometime.

Tabata Intervals of:

Sumo Dead Lift (a wider grip than usual) 225 lbs

Strength Work afterwards:

Didn't get the chance to do the extra strength training today, but I did get some Dead Lifts done during the regular CF class. Managed to knock out 3 reps of 305 lbs and it felt damn good!

I've been sleeping around 1:30ish the past two nights which isn't too bad...

Anyways, I finally figured out how to post GIF's!

Unfortunately, I went to sleep way late last night. I left work at a later time than usual, then stayed up browsing the 'net. I plan to get back on track!

I'm debating if I should watch the Dr. Who 50th Anniversey Special that's premiering tonight since there's so much hype about it. I'm still on Season 3 of the series, though.

Not doing too well lately. I slept really late last night due to a possible cold (sore throat and cough). I also didn't do any strength training today. I did, however, finish today's CrossFit WOD as prescribed:

400 meter run

8 deadlifts w/225 lbs

18 KBS w/60 lbs

400 meter run

8 deadlifts

18 Toes to Bar

400 meter run

Time was 10:40!

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 22, 2012

I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that I ran my mile yesterday! :)

The bad news is that I haven't done any strength work this week, and that I had to miss CrossFit today due to my right shoulder feeling strained (which was probably due to the 115 lbs push presses we did yesterday).

I've also been staying up late past 2am these past two days.

Anyways, hopefully this shoulder soreness goes away soon. It won't be the first time this has happened!

Glad to report that my shoulder is back to 100% and feeling great!

Been doing great with sleep these past two nights. You could say that I've been sleeping like a log.

I'm hoping that I don't gain a lot of weight during the Thanksgiving Holidays..

Glad to hear your shoulder is better. A little rest can do wonders! :)

Thanks, Cheech! And yes, it does! I've been getting plenty of sleep lately..
