back in January, and didn't carry through with it. I probably should have tried to get a partner to do it with me, so there was extra motivation to continue with it... Though I do have some virtual partner motivation, since 21st Century Amazon is also doing PTP right now.
- Deadlift: 5 reps at 110 and 105 (was supposed to be 100, but I screwed up my plates)
- Press: 5 reps at 50 and 45 (yay starting from new 1RM of 85 on press)
- Cash-out: 3rds, 30 DUs, 15 K2Es -- 11:45
Keeping my shoulders relaxed at the start of a K2E, when I'm just hanging from the bar, helps A LOT. I am kipping / swinging a bit to start the motion, but to make up for that I am making sure to engage my shoulders and really get up into a good final position before coming back down. I need to take some more video to make sure my back is getting close to parallel to the ground.
I would've done the cash out faster if I didn't have to pee in the middle of my 2nd set of DU's.
Press felt soooooo easy. Deadlift too. I think sticking to this program will be an exercise in patience, and will also teach me a lot about working with future clients who want to get stronger. Since one of my interests is training the older crowd, I think first-hand experience in a gradual strength-building progression will be invaluable. For someone who is older and worried about losing strength, strength gains seem like they would trump metcon / aerobic conditioning in importance.
