In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a mini-metcon.
A little bit meh.
Today’s workout was neither terrible nor awesome. We lifted some stuff. It took a while. Then we were done. Some days are just like that.
10 2-count PVC back squats
10 PVC good mornings
10 air squats
10 behind-the-neck press, PVC
5 @ 65% of max = 105#
5 @ 75% of max = 120#
max reps @ 85% of max = 135# - I did 7.
5 @ 65% of max = 80#
5 @ 75% of max = 90#
max reps @ 85% of max = 100# – I did 5.
Totally disappointed with only 5 reps at 100#. On July 20, I did 7 reps at 105#. I can only assume today’s lackluster performance is because I’m playing with my thyroid hormones. LAME-O!
How was your workout week?
