For the strength segment,  we are starting a new 4 week cycle of the Wendler 5-3-1 Program (more details here).  “Working 1RM” is defined as 90% of your current 1RM.  If you are not sure of your current 1RM talk to your Coaches and they’ll help you determine it.  If you completed the previous 4 week cycle your working 1RM for this cycle should be set 5lbs heavier for the Press and Bench and 10lbs heavier for the Squat and Deadlift.  Note:  1st work set is 5 reps, 2nd is 3 reps, and final work set is for “max reps”.  You should not be going to absolute failure on this last set.

    I hate you Karen... 7:01 RX 5 reps at 255 for squat (a little disappointing here)

    (I didn't do Karen today, the workout was very similar and I'm expressing my hatred)

    Participated in my first endurance WOD yesterday. We did time trials for 100m, 200m and 400m sprints. Yay for squats today! Haha Squats - 120# for 5 reps. I was MIA last month for the Wendler 531 so I'm starting from scratch...we'll see where I go from here. 8:19 Rx on the legs were definitely a little shaky walking down the stairs at work this morning. :)

    Hmmm.. I guess I'll sub strict KTE's for Wall Balls because I can't do L Pullups.

    It was pretty strange (and hilarious) to do the WOD in a corner with three Humanities doctoral candidates. They re-named today's WOD "Aerobic Sisyphus: an exercise in Postmodern futility" (or was it a Postmodern exercise in futility? I'm not a PhD, obviously!)

    7:23 RX. I can barely walk today! Great WOD.
