    Also in the AM I did 3 rounds of 5 rep ManMakers (20lb dbs in each hand, push up, then a row, push up row with other hand, push up into a squat, clean the DBs, OHP the dbs. That's one rep. These are not easy... )
    15 reps of these took 6 minutes... In the middle of set 1-2 and 2-3 i did sumo high pulls.

  2. Yesterday I did "Grace"

    30 reps of 135lbs power clean/press for time

    4min 30s

    This almost killed me.

    Today I am doing "The Chief" also might do some squats.

    Quick outline for the WOD

    Max rounds in 3 minutes of:
    135 power cleans, 3 reps
    6 push ups
    9 squats

    Rest 1 minute
    5 rounds.

    This is gonna hurt....

    I stay in that zone for my density training.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    send me a WOD I'll try it lol. So long as it doesn't require rings, or Hand stand push ups I can usually do anything.

  15. in regards to my cleans... the time aspect of the thing REALLY makes my cleans WAY faster. It made 135 feel like nothing, and I wasn't even pulling that hard... Being at home I can't explode off the second pull like I usually do (Used to do A LOT of hang power cleans) cause I feel like my floor is gonna break...

    Also, 275x5 deads... haha that felt hella light too. I probably could have done it for 10 but... meh, I am lifting for strength, I'll do speed stuff for reps.

    Gotta increase my Vo2 max and endurance... Tennis season is 12 weeks away, w/o playing tennis I must be in top shape for it.

    I live in an old fashioned Japanese house... Tatami mats are my floors, there is no garage, no outside, no insulation, no hot water... I kid you not... I have a heater outside that heats the water in my tub and I have to use that to shower.. in the winter it's freezing in my house... just 3 more months... and I'll be back home in Hawaii after my 3 year teaching experience lol. Everytime I do a squat the floor gives a good inch... The nearest gym is about 1.5hrs away about $20 one way to get there, and $5 a visit.... I bought my own gym. It was cheaper.

    Holy ****! Props for being resourceful, that floor is scary tho. And you do the high volume crossfit WO's. Anybody live below you? Maybe you should ask them to install some sort of support right under where you lift heavy, luke what is used in a basement to support a sagging floor joist/beam!

    luckily i live on the first floor lol. I've looked under the mats... omfg... there are like 0.5 inch wooden planks randomly placed there... just 2 more months... Hopefully on the weekends I can hit that far expensive gym to pull heavy cleans... I don't think my floor can take cleans any higher than 185.... Well I won't be able to pull them w/o "jumping" so if I do that my floor is bound to go....

    LMAO, I was just thinking about doing ME cleans today... then remembered I might die if I do. Plus I tweaked my right mid back yesterday so I doubt I could pull that heavy.

    BTW, in regards to Osta, 2 weeks you'll be in PCT? WTH are you on now!? lol.

    I found wrapping my wrist before doing cleans offers a nice buffer to prevent and even allow continued healing of injuries to occur, plus it looks kind of bad ass

    with elbows parallel to the ground? This is the form I am working towards lol. I use the wraps on bench press. But recently I have had no joint pains.

    im on a lot of joint support though if you don't your joints will kill you.. hdrol just killed me with lethargy. My friends felt the same way on hdrol, but they also feel the same way about epi. But I feel good on epi, could be the stims Ive been using have been keeping the lethargy at bay also, hard to say. Either way, Im not complaining lol I'd go up to 80 mg but that's prob dumb at my size 60 is prob high as it is

    I was using IBE for the first few weeks but they didn't have any more in stock so I had to switch to havoc for the last few weeks. Both seemed to work the same they are interchangeable. Id go with havoc next time just cause its cheaper.
