ArgSki77 Recalculates and Revamps


ArgSki77

Recommended Posts

Last challenge was a bit of a burnout. Two vacations, general lack of motivation, and stress kept me from hitting a majority of my goals. Now I am back from vacation and feeling relaxed and motivated once again.

 

Food

The RP templates, while very useful, were stressing me out more than helping when my schedule got busy. I am headed back to the IIFYM approach to ease that stress a bit while still keeping my diet in check. Tracking in MFP once again in order to support that. Reran their new calculator and the numbers for weight loss that they provided were 2600 calories and a macro split of 260g protein, 130g Fat, 98g Carbs. On days where I workout, the overall calorie count will come up a bit with some added carbs to fuel workouts. Only allowing one cheat meal or event per week so that I have some freedom on weekends so social events do not stress me out.

 

Workout

Workouts will also change a little bit. Sticking with the Wednesday/Friday crossfit-esq classes in the mornings. But new to this challenge is a running goal. Since Spartan Race is in the cards for next summer, running will need to be something I get used to. Can currently only run about a mile without stopping and that's a slow 11-12 minute mile. Would like to work up to a nonstop 5K eventually. Also adding in something that is a bit of a step outside comfort zone which is going to a class at the gym with a different coach or one of the new classes offered. I have shied away from them because its not familiar strength style conditioning work but now I am interested in trying them. Finally, ROMWOD to help out with the mobility. 4 days a week was a bit ambitious so limiting it to two to make it more manageable this challenge with all the other stuff.

 

Life

Throwing in some life goals in there for a bit of a change. Trying to help the GF feel less stress at home because work for her has been pretty brutal lately. I have a bunch of little to-do tasks that she has been asking me to do, that I have on my list, or just things I know that will help which will ease things at home and make us both happier.

 

Going to keep it very simple this time and adopt the check box style for tracking

Yeah, I did the same when I had some major diet fails. It didn't take much of that to ease in and get back on track! Good luck!!!

 

Wait, wut? You build chairs???? What else do you build????

Ha...no...they are from Target. We got two sets in boxes like the first month we moved in and I built one. The other has been in our landing area for the rest of the time now. But we have now needed those chairs twice when people have come over so really need to build them so I dont have to sit on a stool when friends are over.

Zero Week Day 1

 

Solid start to the challenge.

 

Food tracking was decent. Working on getting the diet closer to my macros. Was a bit high on carbs since I didnt have time to prep breakfast and ended up grabbing a breakfast sandwich. I'm really making sure that I am honest with myself on the tracking this time around. I have the age old problem of taking little bites of this or a taste of that and not recording them. Those little M&M Halloween candy packets seem like so little but toss macros way off if I eat 2-3 over the course of the day.

 

Woke up this morning with all intentions of going for a run. I took one step outside and it was 37degrees. I was not dressed for the occasion and already pushing it on time. I ended up heading to the office a bit early and hoping to sneak out so I can squeeze in a run after work. May need to get a cheap membership at the gym right next to my house so I can run indoors on the track during the winter if we are going to make this really work because I refuse to run on a treadmill.

 

Making progress already with life goals. Put all the stuff on the counter and sink in the dishwasher on my way out of the house this morning and ran it. Baby steps.

Oofta it's hapenning already isn't it! I had to a wear a super warm hat on my grocery ruck yesterday :P I like the idea of an indoor track! Something about it feels kind of magical, like how casinos paint the ceilings and do up the lights to make it feel like you're in a perpetual Venetian twilight or NY at midnight... Hope it works out!

Glad to have you around!

 

I dont use the MFP calculator as I dont particularly like the results it gives. I use the IIFYM calculator http://www.iifym.com/iifym-calculator/

I find that it gives more options to tailor your calorie intake and macro balance than the build in values on MFP. So I run that calculator and then adjust the settings on MFP to match it.

I was going to call this zero week day one but I think this challenge just going to do updates as things happen. I usually have half a day on one update and then a bit more randomness. Now we are going straight to the point with goals. Although it seems like they wont be much shorter updates

 

Not the best food day yesterday with regards to macros. I was 200cal over where I wanted to be because I ate some carbs thinking I was going to run and then didnt get the chance to. The amount over was actually because I felt guilty that protein was low so I ate a casein pudding before bed. Still love that addition from the RP templates.

 

Got in a ROMWOD workout last night before bed. Workout this morning was almost straight strength stuff...1RM bench press testing.

Spoiler

 

Warmup

Foam rolling - Upper/Lower back, AT band

PVC shoulder work - pass throughs and figure 8s

Wrist mobilization

 

3 Rounds no alternating :15/:15

A: Rowing

B: Wallball Chest Pass

 

Find 1RM Bench

10 x 45lbs

5 x 110lbs

3 x 150lbs

1 x 185lbs

1 x 235lbs

1 x 245lbs - Made this for a real 5lb PR

1 x 255lbs - Went for broke with the 15lb PR. Really grinded through this rep. Coach gave bar a little tap at the sticking point. Wish he hadn't because I think I could have squeaked it out on my own but oh well. Very close and definite progress since last 1RMs in August.

 

Accessory

3 Rounds

10 Dips - Trying so hard to get these down but they feel so weak even with assistance bands. 

10 Ring Rows

8 OH Plate Raise - 45lbs

 

Vintage Strength

10 Min AMAP

A: DB Jerk - 1 per hand - 60lb American Circus Dumbell

B: Hammer Slams - 6 per arm - 20lb hammer

C: KB Jerk - 1 per hand - 20kg

D: KB Swing - 10 two handed - 32kg

Made it through 4 full rounds + another round with everything but the KB Swings

 

 

Also, cranked out some of the life goals last night and added some new ones(which are already done for the most part). Front closet is clean and organized and I finally cleared out the big stack of boxes in the kitchen that needed to be moved to the basement. I've got to get the guest room squared away tonight because friend is coming over for halloween weekend tomorrow night and its kind of in shambles. GF is cleaning it up today on her morning off and then I will do the picture hanging and headboard installation when I get home. Also, if its not too late, I should give everything a quick vacuum and get that out of the way.

Awesome.  Weird to press huh?  Did your coach have you balance it with the grip over your shoulder perpendicular to your shoulders or with with the wide parts on your forearm/back of your shoulder parallel to it?  

 

Parallel felt much more comfortable to me but perpendicular felt much more powerful. 

 

Don't know if I'm doing a challenge this month but I'll be doing my best to follow along with you and some other folks.

Yeah it was a weird press. Im used to doing them with kettlebells which is a different feel as well.

 

It was almost a combination of the two for position. When I got through the clean part I instinctively had the hands/grip perpendicular to the shoulder. But when I adjusted to get ready to press, I let it fall back and rotate onto my shoulder a little to level it out. That top position in the picture is very close to the angle where I started the press from. But there is a definite bit of a shift right after the clean up to shoulder. That may have to change once I start adding weight to the DB as I dont want to have to adjust anything heavier and waste energy.

That's why my coach switched me to resting it on my forearm/back of shoulder, wasted time and energy.  Especially time, since my next comp has 100lb DB for 60 sec AMRAP in it.  

 

I think I may give it another shot tomorrow if I don't mess around with an axle.

100lb...womp :o 

 

I dont think I could get 100 overhead. The one I was using was 60lb with no weight loaded. I was able to do a couple at 65 with a normal dumbbell. My coach just bought an old school circus bell on craigslist which less American-y and more old-timey freak show looking. Its 55lbs but loads with sand and easier to crank up the weight to what you want it to be. Id like to see if I could get 75lbs up.

This was 95lbs, the first time I'd tried circus DB.  A little grindy and I dicked around too much adjusting it, as you said:

 

So we shall see how 100lbs goes.  Coach pointed out I have a lot of room in my dip and rebend to take some inches out of the lift.

Curious, what is a competitive amount of reps for a minute in competition? Also is it just one arm of your choice? Because I am much stronger on my right(dominant) side plus I move faster with the clean on that side too.

I honestly have no idea but one of the other guys that is likely competing just posted a video of him hitting 100lbs for a single, said he hit it twice for singles.  So I guess I'm probably pretty close for this competition at singles for 95.  (I hope.)

 

He also hit a PR of 200 on axle C&P tonight apparently.  I'm a bit behind him on that, have only hit 160.  

 

I'm not super worried.  My coach/gym owner is the one running it and I'm certain he wouldn't let me compete if he didn't think I was ready.

Hmm that's a fun challenge. I can clean and jerk a decent amount of weight(although Ive never 1RM so I dont know a max) but with an axle that would change a lot of stuff depending on how high I was going for weights. That fatter bar would certainly highlight my grip weaknesses over time. We have done axle deadlifts before and I know I had to do reverse grip deadlifts much sooner than I did with normal deadlifts because of my grip strength.

 

I know some of the elite strong(wo)men and I think even some of this years crossfit games athletes do the reverse grip pull and then flip the reversed arm back over in the process on super heavy cleans and axle cleans to account for the grip. I remember seeing that and thinking it was interesting. And then there is the belly rest flip where you rest it on your stomach and flip the hand quick while its there(continental clean I think its called).

Last night was full of more life stuff. Did some of the chores on my list and then started working on my homework/project for my current Masters class. So fun. I got the chairs built and vacuumed the apartment. Also, ran the dishes through again and washed all my dinner pots and pans so bonus on that front.

 

Food was pretty good. I'm not sure that I am liking the macro balance though. There are so few carbs. Like even less than I remember in the past especially on rest days. Even eating healthy-ish foods, its hard to stay under 100g of carbs. Yesterday, I was able to limit it down to 149g which I accept because it was a workout day. But rest days will be tough to balance that little carbs. I put my breakfast and lunch in there for today already and I am 10g over already(although that's because free Bagel Thursday). May adjust a bit and do more of an even balance between fat and carbs. I will figure that out depending on how I feel the next few days(or even just worrying about staying at goal calories which is really the underlying problem). Everything else was pretty spot on yesterday!

DUDE. I'm getting all your postings but not your own!!! WTJ. Imma try unfollowing you and refollowing... that's helped in some cases ;) 

 

Okay, catching up!

 

1. American flag DB press = EPIIIIIIICCCCCC more flags pls. That's just hilarious.

2. @Broba Fett IG stalked, done and done.

3. Where are all these boxes coming from? Where does one get boxes? I love boxes! Maybe next challenge :P 

4. Carbs - are you choosing a lower percentage or is that the one they gave you? 100 seems low considering what you do..

 

ok, commence unfollow re follow!

That is what the IIFYM spit back as a number and thats just what I rolled with but its very low. Once I get a bit adjusted to the lower calorie intake on this cut, I will closer focus on the carb fat balance.
