Monday, May 6th
A. Back Squat @ 90%; 4 reps x 6 sets; rest 4 min
warm up 45(Cool-65(6)-95(6)-115(4)-135(3)-145(3)-155(1)
166.5 x 4 These were not terrible. ?


B1. RDL @ 4020; 4-6 reps x 5 sets; rest 30 sec
135-145-150-155 x 6reps

B2. GHD Sit-ups @ 2020; 10-12 reps x 5 sets; rest 2 min

C. Wtd Hip Extensions @ 2121; 4-6 reps x 5 sets; rest 1 min
15-15-20-20-25 x 6reps

Had a training moment today. I think for a VERY long time I've been training just to see myself get stronger or better at skills. Today for some reason I started thinking about the other girls who might be training for my category and I wanted to be better than them. I'm going to try, that's for sure. queen


Tuesday, May 7th
A. DB Bench Press @ 3010; 4-6 reps x 5 sets; rest 3 min 25-30-35 40(5)-40(6) Couln't even do 1 at 40 last week!! cheers
B1. BB Shoulder Press @ 21X1; 3, 3, 3, 3, 3; rest 90 sec 53-63-68-70-73(1) Kinda pulled something in my neck/upperback-not sure I would have gotten 3anyway. I barely got three at 72 last week.
B2. BW Pull-ups; 5 reps x 5 sets; rest 90 sec Switched grip each set, these were hard today. A lot of stealth kipping going on on reps 4-5.
C1. Standing DB Tricep Ext @ 3010; 4-6 reps x 4 sets; rest 30 sec 10-10-10-15
C2. Powell Raise @ 3010; 4-6 reps x 4 sets; rest 30 sec 8#X6 for all sets


Wednesday, May 9th
AMRAP in 20 minutes @ 80%:
Row 500m
6 Power Cleans @ 75#
80ft Sled Push - moderate
30 sec FLR on Rings
4 rounds + 40m Plain and simple...this sucked.

Thursday, May 10th
A. Back Squat @ 90%; 4 reps x 3 sets; rest 4 min 166.5 X4 X3 Worked on depth. First two reps always feel light and deep enough, then I kind of chicken out.
B. Good Morning @ 4020; 4-6 reps x 5 sets; rest 2 min 55-65-75-80-85 Big improvement for me here. I hate these but I am starting to make peace with them.
C1. Strict T2B @ 2010; amrap x 5 sets; rest 1 min 10-8-7-6-7 That two second tempo is ridiculously hard and not kipping AT ALL...probably not.
C2. Hip Extensions @ 1010; 15-18 reps x 5 sets; rest 1 min 15 for all sets. I think I was going a little too slow and might be why I couldn't get 18 ever. My but was burning by 10 every time.


Friday, May 11th
A. Bench Press @ 3010; 2.2 reps x 7 sets; rest 3 min (rest 15 sec on cluster)
B1. Kipping HSPU; amrap x 5 sets rest 90 sec

Recovery

Post by MarthaB on 4/30/2013, 4:35 pm

My recovery has been crap lately and I think it's because I ran out of Glutamine and man that stuff is like GOLD!! I notice a huge difference when I'm not taking it.

I bought two big tubs today! Gotta get back on the sauce, man! afro

39 Days- 2013 USA Nationals & Team NASA Competition

Post by MarthaB on 4/29/2013, 12:31 pm

Monday, April 29th
A. Back Squat @ 85%; 6 reps x 5 sets; rest 4 min
Warm up: 45X 8, 65X6, 95X6, 115X4, 135X2
Sets @ 157, first 4 felt good on all sets, last two were tough and by my video I would say a little shallow.

B1. RDL @ 4020; 6-8 reps x 4 sets; rest 30 sec Used straps and was bale to go heavier on these. 115-125-130-135 x 8
B2. GHD Sit-ups @ 2020; 10-12 reps x 4 sets; rest 2 min Feeling VERY sick to my stomach on the first set so I switched to weighted sit ups. 10#, 20#, 30# X 12
C. Wtd Hip Extensions @ 2121; 5-7 reps x 5 sets; rest 1 min I tapped out on this did one set and still felt so sick. Maybe all GHD, etc will need to be done empty stomach from now on just to be safe.
I'm thinking the nausea may be the new protein I've been taking. I've never felt like this during a strength workout. Going to try to go back to the one I had before and see if that helps.



Tues, April 30th
A. DB Bench Press @ 3010; 6-8 reps x 5 sets; rest 3 min 20-25-35-35-35, I tried to do 40 but my right arm wouldn't budge. I think If I had a person there to give me a bump on that first rep I could have done a few.
B1. BB Shoulder Press @ 21X1; 4, 4, 4, 4; rest 90 sec 55-65-70-72(3)
B2. BW Pull-ups; 5 reps x 4 sets; rest 90 sec All 5 reps, did pronated, mixed, mixed and supinated grips
C1. Standing DB Tricep Ext @ 3010; 6-8 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec My tri's were in agony from skull crushers on SATURDAY!!! I couldn't even do 10# without pain so I skipped these.
C2. Powell Raise @ 3010; 6-8 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec 5# all sets X8


Wed, May 1st
AMRAP in 10 minutes @ 80%:
Run 200m
10 Box Jumps @ 20” (step down)
5+50m
rest 5 minutes

AMRAP in 10 minutes @ 80%:
5 Burpees
10 Double Unders

C2. Hip Extensions @ 1010; 12-15 reps x 5 sets; rest 1 min


Fri, May 3rd
A. Bench Press @ 3010; 3.3 reps x 5 sets; rest 3 min (rest 15 sec on cluster)

Re: Martha's Training Log

Post by MarthaB on 4/23/2013, 10:32 am

Monday, April 22nd
A. Back Squat @ 80%; 8 reps x 5 sets; rest 4 min Warm up 45/65/95/115. All sets @ 145 and 6-8-8-8-8. This was TOUGH. My hips felt weak. The first set I wasn't really prepared for how hard it would be so that's why only 6 reps.
B1. RDL @ 4020; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec I haven't done these much so I wasn't really sure on weight. 85-95-115 all X 10
B2. GHD Sit-ups @ 2020; 10-12 reps x 3 sets; rest 2 min Slow GHD's are no joke, plus I had eaten a little too close to my workout and felt like throwing up hence 10 reps per set. Still felt nauseated for about an hour after. Note to self: eat earlier.
C. Wtd Hip Extensions @ 2121; 6-9 reps x 4 sets; rest 1 min 5#, 7.5#, 10#X2 all 9 reps

Tuesday, April 23rd
A. DB Bench Press @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 4 sets; rest 3 min 25# X 2, 30# x 2 - all 10 reps. I like these better than BB BP for some reason.
B1. BB Shoulder Press @ 21X1; 6, 6, 6; rest 90 sec 53 x 2, 58
B2. BW Pull-ups; 5 reps x 3 sets; rest 90 sec all complete (probably a bit of a kip nearing the end reps)
C1. Standing DB Tricep Ext @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec - felt very awkward so I did single arm on the bench @ 10# all sets 10 reps
C2. Powell Raise @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec 5#, all sets 10 reps

Wednesday, April 24th
AMRAP in 20 minutes @ 80%:
Row 500m
80ft Farmers Walk @ 44#
10 Push Press @ 53#
30 Double Unders
5 Push-ups
Did 3 rounds plus 400m row and farmer walk. Last row pace dropped a bunch due to my dumb back tightening. I REALLY try to warm up and prepare so this won't happen. I try to sit correctly on the rower and I feel like I'm getting better but I can't seem to sit right and pull a good pace. BLah.

Thursday, April 25th
A. Back Squat @ 80%; 6 reps x 3 sets; rest 3 min 147 alll sets - felt heavy but I started my period and think that may have been affecting me all week READ : NO ENERGY!
B. Good Morning @ 4020; 8-10 reps x 4 sets; rest 2 min 45-55-55-60 X 10 reps
C1. Strict K2E @ 2010; 5-7 reps x 4 sets; rest 1 min all sets 7 reps
C2. Hip Extensions @ 1010; 12-15 reps x 4 sets; rest 1 min all sets 15 reps and a severely burning butt at the end.

Friday, April 26th
A. Bench Press @ 3010; 4.4 reps x 4 sets; rest 3 min (rest 15 sec on cluster)
75-80-85-95 last one felt hard but didn't feel I maxed...maybe could have finished at 100

B1. EROM HSPU Neg @ 51A0; 4, 4, 4, 4 rest 90 sec
45# plates - probably closer to 4 seconds at the end

B2. BW Pull-ups; 5 x 4 sets; rest 90 sec
all complete, used supinated grip for all reps since this usually harder for me

C1. DB Skull Crusher @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec
20# all sets

C2. DB External Rot @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec
10# all sets

53 Days out...Week of April 15th, 2013

Post by MarthaB on 4/15/2013, 8:30 am

Monday, April 15th
A. Back Squat @ 70%; 8 reps x 4 sets; rest 3 min
I warmed up with the bar, 83, 103 and 123. My sets were at 128 and started out feeling heavy. This is normalfor me as I always take a while to warm up. There is a fine line though between just enough and overdone. All sets completed and even the last two reps were decent speed.

Unfortunately (and fortunately because I'm making $$) I was really busy yesterday and did not get to the rest of the workout. I will most likely pick it up this weekend.

B1. RDL @ 4020; 10-12 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec
B2. GHD Sit-ups @ 2020; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 2 min
C. Wtd Hip Extensions @ 2121; 6-9 reps x 3 sets; rest 1 min

Tuesday, April 16th
A. Bench - Build to a 1RM (pause for 1 sec at chest) #115
B. Weighted Pronated Pull-up - Build to a 1RM #10 not really happy about the drop in my pull up strength, but I haven't worked on them so I guess that's what happens. :-/
C. Bench @ 85% of A; AMRAP x 1 97# X 5
D. Weighted Pronated Pull-ups @ 85% of B; AMRAP X 1 Body Weight X 5 reps
(for Wtd Pull-up @ 85%, that is 85% of your bw & DB Weight COMBINED)


Wednesday, April 17th
AMRAP in 10 minutes @ 80%:
Row 250m
7 Burpees
7 Hang Power Snatches @ 45#
Result: 3 rounds + Row + 11

rest 5 minutes

AMRAP in 10 minutes @ 80%:
10 cal Airdyne
5 KB Snatches @ 35#/hand (used 26# - 35 was not pretty on the left)
10 Sit-ups
Result: 5 rounds


Thursday, April 18th
A. Back Squat @ 75%; 8 reps x 4 sets; rest 3 min 135# - felt good all sets - video coming.
B. Good Morning @ 4020; 10-12 reps x 3 sets; rest 2 min - 45X1, 55X2 - I hate these and feel weird doing them.
C1. Strict K2E @ 2010; 5-7 reps x 3 sets; rest 1 min 7 reps all sets...might have been a tiny kip in there.
C2. Hip Extensions @ 1010; 12-15 reps x 3 sets; rest 1 min 15X1, 12X2 - these got hard fast, my back was already pretty tight from the GM.


Friday, April 19th
A. Bench Press @ 3010; 5.5 reps x 3 sets; rest 3 min (rest 15 sec on cluster)
B1. EROM HSPU Neg @ 51A0; 4, 4, 4 rest 90 sec
B2. BW Pull-ups; amrap x 3 sets; rest 90 sec
C1. DB Skull Crusher @ 3010; 10-12 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec
C2. DB External Rot @ 3010; 10-12 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec

Training and the lack of...

Post by MarthaB on 4/9/2013, 10:49 am

I have been doing group classes and am starting to see my lack of focus affect some stuff that I really am not stoked about...drops in pull up and dip strength and just overall lethargy.

On a positive note: Even with my mental boredom, all of the Sectional workouts were positives for me. PR's and improvements across the board that i can't be upset about. I ended up placing 64th in So Cal women ages 40-44, oout of 143 that posted all of their scores. I'm ok with that. :-)

7am: 25 minutes Z1...rowed for 5 which is about all my back can stand and then 20 on the Airdyne. Rolling Eyes

Later today I will do the group class and hoping this week to get back to an individual program leading up to my powerlifting competition. I ordered my singlet today. Hell yeah!

Today at 4:30:
Power Clean
Function: Hang Power Clean x 2 reps
Performance: Power Clean x 2 reps
(As many sets as desired in time, adding weight but ensuring good technique)

Conditioning (start before min 38)"Chica"
EMOTM for 18 minutes
Even: 3-10 Kipping Pull-ups (choose a sustainable #)
Odd: 7 Thrusters @ moderate load

Post by MarthaB on 3/12/2013, 4:11 pm

A. 3 Bench press @50% w/band tension;
EMOM for 9 Min (switch grip each set; close, med, wide)
Was pressing alone so I was a little afraind to go too heavy with the bands on. started at 65 and finished at 75. Probably could have gone heavier.
B. 3 ring dips with chain; EMOM for 9 min - Tried the chain on ring dips...that was a joke. Ended up doing 2 reps on the minute with a 5# DB.
C. Ring push-up plank; AMSAP x3; rest as needed - 30 seconds all three sets

Friday 3/8

Post by MarthaB on 3/12/2013, 4:01 pm

Crossfit Games Open Sectional 13.1

Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 17 minutes of:
40 Burpees
45 pound Snatch, 30 reps
30 Burpees
75 pound Snatch, 30 reps
20 Burpees
100 pound Snatch, 30 reps
10 burpees
120 pound Snatch, as many reps as possible

RESULT: 123 reps cheers

This score, while not stellar in the leaderboard, is pretty awesome for me.
As a mashup of last years workouts, neither of which I did very well on...ok, I sucked. At the last minute, Ryan gave me a tip that completely transformed my snatch and low and behold I was able to get that 75# bar up 23 times. I really think I could have done morenow, but had VERY low expectations. So, yeah, I'm super happy with this score.
