[/caption] Winnipeg-I took the week after the Intergalactic Throwdown off. I stretched, biked and did a bunch of mobility drills. I also ate pizza, drank some wine and had chocolate. It was a wonderful physical and mental break. Sunday, I was back at the garage training. I did two-position snatches at 95 lb., and squat cleans. My back was bothering me, so I stopped at 125 lb., recognizing less was more that day. I also worked on muscle-ups. I still haven’t figured out the kip on the rings, but I have a feeling that’s coming shortly. Monday was 5 x 5 high-bar back squats at 155 lb., 175 lb., and the last 3 sets at 185 lb. I followed this up with a 2K row and 40 burpees. The total time was 11:55. I finished with 2 x 10 back extensions and 3 x 20 sit-ups. Tuesday I pressed. I did it from a slightly higher starting point, just above my head to be exact. I wanted to replicate a handstand-pushup. I did 5 x 5 at 100 lb. It was challenging on the last 2 sets for the fourth and fifth rep. I also did 2 x 10 tricep extensions and 2 x 10 delt flies. I finished with 5 sets of stairs and 3 x 8-10 toes-to-bar. Training for sectionals is officially underway, and I’m super excited. I’ve dialed my diet back in this week, and I’m feeling motivated. Tomorrow is a rest day and massage, and Thursday I hit up Cindy! On a side note, Mike found me on a “workout porn” site today. I’m not kidding. To be honest, I totally wasn’t offended. I was in the part where the girls were clothed, and they’re all super fit! I think I’m OK with this? Anyways, check it out. It made me laugh.
It’s easy to get off track with fitness and food in December. So I put together a plan to ensure I keep moving toward my goals.
