21 sumo deadlift high pull
75 jump rope
50 jump rope

Time: 7:24

SDHP with 50 lb sandbag.

Comments: So, I was SUPPOSED to do clean & jerks and front squats. But apparently not only can I not lift barefoot in the gym (stupid fuckers think running shoes are safer!), I can't do full squat olympic lifts, only power. Fucking RIDICULOUS. I'm tired of people who don't know what they're doing creating and enforcing rules about the olympic lifts. Douchebags. I'm pissed.

Workout, 5/7/2007




325x2 x5

Push Press



195x2 x5

Played an hour and a half of racquetball and badminton.

Comments: Deadlifts felt quite good, but I think I will stay at this weight next time, to make my form just that last bit better. Push press was also good, though I wish I'd been able to double 205 for my sets. Next time, though. Badminton and racquetball are fun.

Workout, 5/3/2007

Burgener warm-up with bar


Worked up to a bunch of singles and doubles at 95 lbs

Overhead Squat

Worked up to a single at 135, then 3 doubles at 125

Back extensions and hollow rocks

Comments: I CAN OVERHEAD SQUAT WAY MORE. My wrists are what hold me back. I gave Coach Burgener a call and he said it'll probably just take some time (3-4 weeks) for my wrists to acclimate.

Workout, 5/1/2007

Burgener warm-up with bar


Worked up to a bunch of singles and doubles at 85 lbs for form work

Clean and Jerk:

Ton of singles at 135, again for form.

Front Squat:

Worked up to 3 doubles at 205, ass-to-grass


10 rounds of 30 second sprint, 30 second walking pace
115 calories total

Comments: Changing focus to Olympic lifting. I just enjoy it more. Still eating good and doing metcon after lifting, but the way I see it is, I've gotta do what I love. After next semester, I may even move down to Vista to train at Mike's Gym! I miss competing, and I think this is the sport I want to do it in next. I need a ton of work.
