    Static stretching sequence x1

    Part of my stretching sequence is a 45s bar hang, with 1 pullup after about 30s. I was wearing a long-sleeve button-up shirt at work today (where I was stretching) with the sleeves rolled to the elbows. When I did the pullup, both sleeves ripped at the elbows. Hulk smash! :cool:

    Took the evening off, save it for TSC.

    Realized today that I've scheduled myself a bit of a hellacious month. TSC this weekend, karate tournament next weekend, 10k race after that, then a Spartan. Then it will be a good time week or two off, I figure.

    Good run, close to unbroken. Probably a little extra energy due to skipping evening training yesterday.

    Nothing else on Friday.

    TSC

    DL 445, 475, miss 500 (new PR, old PR 465)
    Pullups x12 (PR x13)
    KB snatch 24 x124 (PR x127)

    On DL, I hit my 2x BW goal on the second lift (weighed in at 235), and it went up easy. So, I thought, WTH let's see what I can do. I broke 500 off the floor, but my back started to round before I got to the knees, so I bailed out. But I think that will be a good goal for next year. Interestingly, that's literally the first DL I've ever missed. I only started training it 2 years ago or so, and TSC is the only time I test.

    The missed DL definitely took some out of me. I got no-counted on rep on pullups - just a little disappointed with performance there. But coming so close to my PR on the snatches given how fatigued my back was feeling is a definite victory.

    Fun day as always. (y)

    I really gotta find a way to up my pullup game. I'm in the hunt on DL and snatches, but with anything below 15, the pullup score really drags me down. I'm thinking some ROP over the winter.

    And, losing 10# wouldn't hurt...

    Much thanks, @Phil12 ,@Antti ,@Philippe Geoffrion and @offwidth , appreciate the kind words

    It's funny - as I look back on it, I'm more proud of making the attempt at 500 (and not getting hurt!) than I am of actually getting 475. Already found a new rabbit to chase.

    Opted to sleep in this morning - still feeling a little wiped from Saturday.

    10/28 20:15

    EYFS +
    Grip circuit 3x5
    - Cannonball hang
    - Fingertip pushups
    - One-arm hang x side
    - Towel hang

    Grip circuit was tough - indicating I should do it more.

    Feeling almost normal by the evening.

    Static stretching sequence x1

    10/29 21:00

    GSQT 3x5 48,48,28 with curl
    Halo 3x5 24
    Bridge 3x6
    Wall overhead extensions 3x6
    KB snatch 22x5 32 EMOM
    TGU 5x1 x side 40

    Good news: 110 snatches with the 32, in pretty good time.

    Bad news: Form fell apart in the final 2 sets - grip on left in particular gave out. Noted that my HR was gradually creeping up too - not too high, but an upward trend. Probably not the real spirit of A+A ... but at the same time, it's tough to give up so much time to get full recovery.

    Volleyball in the evening. Felt pretty sharp, and realized why my serve has been poor lately - striking with too much arm extension. Let the ball come down just a little more, and put some pepper on it.

    A little LSS low temperature training, a.k.a. taking my son trick-or-treating.

    10/31 21:30

    GSQT 3x5 48,48,28 with curl
    Halo 3x5 24
    Bridge 3x6
    Wall overhead extensions 3x6
    DL 1x5 325#
    Pullups 7,6,5,4
    ZSQT 3x5 175#
    BB side press 4x5 65#
    Flat frog raise 2x11, flat leg raise x8
    Grip circuit x3
    + 45# bumper plate pinch hold - left hand really sucks at this

    DL + one arm bar hang = no can do! Tough.

    Struggling a little bit on what to do with leg raises. It's a move I want to master because I think it will be particularly applicable to karate. But it feels like hamstring flexibility is the limiting factor right now. So... try to keep increasing rep count (convict conditioning style)? Treat it like a stretch, and spend more time in the uncomfortable spot (less reps slower)? Break it in two (maybe ab wheel roll + more stretching )?

    I'm leaning towards less reps slower.

    Karate tournament. Bit of bad luck on the draws, lost in the first round for both kata and sparring to the guy who would go on to win the division. Was pretty pleased with my kata - executed a new kata for me, and felt sharp. But the other guy was just really good - very impressive balance. Felt good sparring too, but I remain frustrated with the judged nature of it - feel like a lot of points scored against me were ghost punches. The last one was so bad even the other guy had to shrug his shoulders. Oh well.

    Since I didn't get much work at the tournament, had some extra energy for a conditioning session.

    I would always seem to get lousy draws in every Kendo tournament I was ever in....

    Plus when we did Kata for gradings (they are 2 person Katas) I would always get some chucklehead who didn't know their part; which of course can mess your part up...

    Oof. Arbitrary judging, plus an unknown/unreliable partner. Fun.

    I suppose it's more civil than old-school rules, though (first guy to die loses).
