March 2017 Training Log

Below is my training log for March 2017. The training is for life in general and for my 2017 to-do list specifically.

Wednesday, March 1 – 100 Push-ups

Technique – Double Unders 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off. 5 rounds.
Work Capacity  – Row 2 min, 3 Cleans @ 95#, 6 Front Rack Lunge @ 95#, 9 Pull-ups. 4 Rounds for time (13:20)

Notes – Back still feels like poop from 17.1. Motivation to workout is super low.

Thursday, March 2 – 0 Push-ups

Technique – Handstand push-up.

Notes – Haven’t worked on these in a long time. Yup, I still suck at them. One of my big issues is that these really jack up my neck. Not entirely sure they are worth it for me.

Friday, March 3 – Rest Day  0 Push-ups

Notes – With 17.2 tomorrow, I just decided to rest and recover. 17.1 totally destroyed me last weekend and I paid the price all this week. Rest felt good and right.

Saturday, March 4 – 0 Push-ups

Work Capacity  – Crossfit Open 17.2 – 50ft Lunge w 2×50# dumbells, 16 toes-to-bar, 8 dumbell cleans. 2 rounds. Then, 50ft Lunge w 2×50# dumbells, 16 bar muscle ups, 8 dumbell cleans. 2 rounds. 12 minute time cap. (84 reps)

Notes – I flew through rounds 1 & 2. Felt good. Got to the muscle ups. Managed to get 5. Very happy with that.

Sunday, March 5 – 0 Push-ups, Rest Day

Notes – none

Monday, March 6 – 0 Push-ups

Work Capacity  – 12 Calorie Row, 15 Ring Dips, 21 Kettlebell Swing (20Kg), AMRAP 18
Durability – 50 Sit-ups, 50 Lunges (@20kg)

Notes – I have no idea how many rounds I did. Lost count. Felt tired and neck was sore.

Tuesday, March 7 – 0 Push-ups, Rest Day

Notes – Neck was killing me today. Decided it was wise to rest up.

Wednesday, March 8 – 0 Push-ups

Work Capacity  – 1:45 on aerodyne, 9 snatch @ 95lb, 21 double-unders, 5 rounds for time (23:27)

Notes – Snatch felt ok-ish and was happy with my double-unders. Neck held up pretty well, but I’m zapped. Not sure if I’m fighting off something or what, but body is “off” after this workout.

Thursday, March 9 – 0 Push-ups

Monday, March 13 – 0 Push-ups

Work Capacity  – Crossfit Open 17.3 (too complex to write)

Notes – felt good enough. Would have liked to hit at least 1 snatch at 135, but wasn’t happening. First part was fast, which was the plan. Happy enough.

Notes – The cleans felt pretty good today. Got low and fast. Been a while since really had the opportunity to work on these. Happy enough with the morning. Slept terrible last night and still physically recovering from cold, so pretty good morning.

Wednesday, March 15 – 0 Push-ups – Rest Day

Thursday, March 16– 0 Push-ups

Notes – Was really happy about pace on DL and WB. Flew through those. Row was miserable. Couldn’t do a HSPU, but I already knew that. Happy, but totally spent. Workout killed me in a big way.

Tuesday, March 21 – 0 Push-ups

Strength – 6 x 1 Behind-the-neck-Jerk + 2 Overhead Squat, Bench 3×5 @ 135

Strength – 18 x 2 Behind-the-neck-push press increasing weight every 2 sets (80-115), 15 Hang Power Cleans increasing weight every 2 sets (80-115)

Work Capacity – 12 DL, 9 hang clean, 6 power jerk (105#) 5 rounds for time.
Durability – 50 Dumbell Benchpress (70# total), fewest sets possible
