Hazard (Apr '16) ---- One Winged Angel


Hazard

Recommended Posts

 

 

Intro:   Hazard is presently a 38 years old 5'9" and 194 lbs male. (For the metric folk, 174 cm and 88 kg). He's a former track athlete turned weightlifter turned wanna-be ninja, who this month apparently aspires to merge with the Lifestream and become a god? :o
 

Epic Quests:   Currently, my long term goals are to master...
                                * muscleups
                                * laches
                                * hanging traverses

 

 

Previously in 2016...

 

Spoiler

In the January challenge I...

  • took my chinup-grip flex hang from 7 seconds ---> 27 seconds
  • took my pullup-grip dead hang from 15 seconds ---> 58 seconds

 

In the February challenge I...

  • took my top-range partial chinups from 4 reps ---> 7 reps
  • took my pullup-grip scapula retractions from 3 reps ---> 12 reps
  • took my dip support hold from 13 seconds ---> 62 seconds

 

In the March challenge I...

  • took my chinups from 2 reps ---> 7 reps
  • took my half-dips from 2 reps ---> 5 reps
  • took my hanging tuck sit from 4 seconds ---> 28 seconds
  • took my pullup grip (pronated) side swings from 4 reps ---> 12 reps

 

 

April Quests:  My main goals for April 2016 are improvement on...

  • Chinups
  • Dips
  • Hanging L-Sit
  • 1-Arm, Pole-assisted, Palm-Grip Hang  <-- One "Wing" training?  I knew the challenge theme had relevance somewhere.

 

Testing:  My starting AMRAP/AMSAP numbers are...

  • Chinups: 7 reps
  • Dips: 2 reps
  • Hanging L-Sit: 3 seconds
  • 1A Asst. Palm Hang: (L/R)  6/8 seconds

 

 

Context:  I train Mon/Wed/Fri.  Along with Assassin quests, I also weight-lift, and I'm currently on a long-term "Cut" diet. 

 

(Added, April 4th) --   I'll go ahead and make an official extra quest this challenge out of my 'Cut' goal.  April 'Cut' Quest: Be under 189.0 lbs by my morning weigh-in on April 30th.

 

The Strategy:  I use alternating training days.  Like so -

 

"A" Day

HB Squat

Bench

SL Deadlift

Chinups

Dips

 

"B" Day

HB Squat

Press

SL Deadlift

Hanging L-Sit

1A Asst. Palm Hang

I tried doing that once in public.  My sis-in-law told me I am never, ever, ever to do that again.  

This is a problem with being a guy in America: The vocal culture's arbitrary restrictions on what constitutes "appropriately male" behavior. 

Nuts to that.  Imma wiggle my tush.

I am pro-male-tush-wiggling in general. I am fortunately blessed with a VERY silly boyfriend willing to do such things in my presence.

Current Challenge 

 

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Diet is 80% of losing weight, exercise is 80% of motivation.

The only thing I am 100% sure of is my ability to be wrong.

I may not be the strongest, the fastest, or the bravest. But I'll be damned if I'm not trying my hardest.

  • 70x3
  • 107.5 x5x3

SL Deadlift (+2.5)

  • 190x3
  • 225 x5x2

 

Comment:  I wasn't happy with my deadlifts.  My hamstrings got work a little work, but my lower back wasn't activating today the way I'd like it to on these.  The mind-muscle connection wasn't there.  :numbness:.  That's unacceptable, of course.  After finishing today's regular training, I returned to deadlifts, and worked them more at a lower weight (see below).

SL Deadlifts, round 2 (45-sec pause between sets)

 

SL Deadlift

  • 190 x5x8

Comment:  Much better.  Mind-muscle connection was on point for all 40 reps.  I even got a fun little "pump" in my lower back for my efforts.
