Well, my legs are extremely sore from yesterdays workout. Who would have thought? 40 reps in 25 minutes with 60% does not sound that bad. I mean 4 sets of 10 reps in 25 mintues with 60% would not be that bad so sets of 5 wouldn't be any different. A major difference is that aggression at which a person is standing up. With compensatory acceleration the most important part is the acceleration on the accent. So it's not quite the same as a 4 by 10 workout, but still, I am more sore than I would have thought. I hope that it doesn't hinder my deadlift workout tomorrow because I am FINALLY GOING TO GET TO USE MY DEADLIFT BAR!! I am hoping to pull around 750+ AT LEAST but who knows how it will go.
Today, I did a very quick bench workout.
Bench Press: 385lbs x 6 x 4 sets
Handstand Holds x 40secs x 4 sets
DB front raises: 45's x 30 x 2 sets
While I was working on the Crossfit side tonight, Big Mike Sinclair came in to max out his deadlift. Here is the video of his MASSIVE 785 pull. It gets a little rough around the knees but the man muscles through it. I think he's going to be the first guy in the Ottawa crew to pull over 800....and hopefully as soon as his next meet in December.
