WOD August 23, 2018

I haven’t been training properly for the last couple of weeks. I think this is the first time in a looong time that I had such a long “dip” training wise. I have gained some weight as well, as I have been eating and drinking more.. it’s such a nice summer.. so it’s hard to turn down evenings with friends and snacks and drinks. Oh well…

I only did some strength today.

Bench press

5 x 35kg
5 x 35kg
5 x 35kg
5 x 35kg
5 x 35kg

This felt quite easy.. below was the 4th set.

Power clean

5 x 30kg
5 x 35kg
5 x 40kg
5 x 45kg
5 x 50kg

All sets were easy, except the last one. That one took some effort!

A while ago I followed this strength program called StrongLifts, it has you do 5 sets at the same weight, increasing weight every week. Think I will try and pick that back up as I hadn’t plateau’d yet and it is quite a nice way of working up the weights. I wasn’t sure what to do for power clean.. as that wasn’t one of the movements in that program (only squats, bench, shoulder press, deadlift and barbell row). I think next sesh I’ll start with 5 x 45kg. That will get pretty heavy for sure.
