    That's what I was leaning for because they have the women's shoes with the smaller heel.

    They're 1/2" heels, right?

    Yeah, that would probably work.

    I didn't even know they made a heeled shoe.

    Yup they're pretty new and aimed at crossfit but I picked some up for the station and I like them so far. Better than a nickel under the heel

    They're real solid, right?

    The heel is entirely solid but it's not like s boot like the Adidas are. It's like a mix between a tennis shoe and a lifting shoe

    Having some pain today, hopefully this doesn't become an issue.

  14. Good to see you're making progress, Jim, or Jeff.

    Hope that soreness goes isn't a sticking issue too.

  15. Yeah, Idk who Jeff is.

  16. You said something like only immediate family members called you James so I thought I'd be more respectful and call you Jeff. This is confusing...

  19. OK, just got a workout in today. Pretty good shoulders work, had some fun with it too.

    Thursday : Shoulders


    BTN Press:
    95 x 3
    115 x 2
    135 x F
    95 x 8
    105 x 8
    105 x 8
    105 x 8

    Wanted to get some easy over warmups in, but 135 got too slow and I decided not to grind out a "warmup" lol. Sets were pretty easy, had some discomfort in the left shoulder that I was trying to work out with this movement, it's a little better now but still some deep soreness.

    Rear Delt Pullapart:
    Doubled Red x 20
    Doubled Red x 20
    Doubled Red x 20
    Doubled Red x 20
    Doubled Red x 20

    1 Arm DB OHP:
    50 x 10
    50 x 10

    Front Raise:
    30 x 12
    30 x 12
    30 x 12

    Band Pushdown:
    AVG x 25
    AVG x 25
    AVG x 25
    AVG x 25

    Did these a little different, stepped about 2 feet back from the bar that the band was attached to. Explosively pressed down, hold for 1-2 seconds, come back up to the starting position. Fighting the upward and forward pull of the band at the bottom was rough.

  20. Finally gonna update my workout from yesterday, didn't have any soreness but had a burning pain (very mild) a couple inches to the right of where the pain has been since the injury. It wasn't a huge issue, barely noticeable honestly, but still there.


    So, not sure what that's about.


    Anyway, Friday: Back Work


    Pendlay Row: 135 x 8 x 4

    Meadows Shrug: 53 x 20 x 4

    WG pulldown: 120 x 10 x 3, 120 x 9

    BB Curl: Bar x 100

    Notes: Curls were done without dropping the bar, knocked out 30 and then starting pumping out sets of 10 to finish. Rested at the bottom, every so often I would have to squat down, and take some of the weight off of my hands (the forearm pump though) so that I could re-grip the barbell and finish. They sucked, and now my biceps are sore.

  21. Starting meet prep next week, should be mailing out entries later this week.

    Edit: jeezus, I forgot how damn expensive these things are.

  32. Bench work today, this will be my last CG Bench session. Hoping to have gotten some solid strength improvements with the competition style bench.

    185 x 1
    205 x 1
    225 x 1

    -pause

    BW x 12
    BW x 10
    BW x 11
    BW x 9
    -Joe D Style
    BW x 18

    Good quick workout today. Bench didn't feel great, but it wasn't terrible. Like I said, we'll see what kind of improvements all of the CG Benching has led to in the next couple of months.

  33. Tuesday: Squat + DL


    Back Squat:
    45 x 5
    95 x 3
    135 x 1
    185 x 1
    225 x 1
    275 x 1
    205 x 1
    165 x 5
    165 x 5
    165 x 5
    165 x 5
    165 x 5

    Finished the 5 x 5 in 7 minutes, after this meet will either move to the BB II model or increase TM based upon meet numbers and continue BB I

    DL:
    95 x 3
    135 x 1
    185 x 1
    225 x 1
    255 x 1
    175 x 3
    175 x 3
    175 x 3

  35. Yeah, today wasn't a bad day for training.

    A little discomfort again, but nothing serious. I'll post to Instagram soon.

  36. Monday-10-27-14 Meet Prep Deadlift


    DL:
    185 x 3
    225 x 3
    +belt
    240 x 3
    225 x 3
    225 x 3

    Deficit DL:
    -belt
    135 x 6
    185 x 6
    185 x 6
    205 x 6

    GHR:
    4" x 15 (BW)
    4" x 10 (BW)
    5" x 9 (BW)

    TRX Plank--Knee to chest:
    BW x 30 sec
    BW x 30 sec

    Done.


    Meet prep is going to look like this:

    Monday: DL + PC/Core
    Wednesday: Squat + Quad
    Friday: Back (Volume stuff)
    Saturday: Bench + Shoulder/Tri

    3-4 exercises per day, main movement numbers are based upon the lifts I plan to hit this meet (DL = 300, BP = 275, Squat = 315). My first assistance movement will be directly related to the main movement for some heavy(ish) volume (DL - Def. DL, Squat - Pause Squat, Pause Bench - Lilly Bench). After that will be volume work for the related muscle groups, as I get closer to the meet assistance work will taper down in intensity as the main work tapers up in intensity. Work will be done beltess outside of the main movement working sets.

    Last heavy DL will be 12 days before the meet, squat will be 10, bench will be 7. Full deload will be taken week of meet, form work on the big three will be done at ~50-60% of current EDM on that Monday or Tuesday, after that it will only be blood flow work with the assistance lifts (Lunges, GHR, Band work) to get everything feeling loose and healthy before the day.

    Realistically I would like to break 900 at this meet, but we'll have to see how everything goes.

    Planning on opening around: 275-240-260.

    These numbers might change during the meet prep, depending on how things go.
