    Sooo...I just didn't feel it today. I struggled with 5 reps of OH squat w/140 and failed a 160 snatch. So, I just decided to have a bit of fun with some circuit or superset (whatever you want to call it) GPP today. If I was smart, I prob would've taken the day off. And no, I'm not starting this as a journal...I just wanted to share my feelings, frustrations, joys, and sorrows with my beloved MAP family. ;)

    Circuit A-no rest between movements, 60 sec RI between circuit
    A1)cleans:140X12X3, 110X20X2

    Circuit B-same as circuit A

    3x10 dumbell snatches

    Followed with some intense stretching.

    3x10 reverse barbell curls

    Second Rest Day.

  9. Colucci

    Colucci My buddies call me Chris.

    I'm wrapping up work at the office, but on the books for today is a 1-mile walk and a Big 55 workout of Close-grip Push-ups and Power Curls (basically, 55 total reps, with as few rests as possible).

    P.S. - Is there any particular reason that the Nutrition Check-In is getting more attention than the workouts? Not that I mind horribly. But I would like to know that you guys do still work out some. :rolleyes:

    Everybody eats more than they workout. Well i hope so anyways.

    My workout today

    8x3 Pull up
    8x3 Bench press

    8x3 military press

  11. GhostOfYourMind

    GhostOfYourMind Bewaters lil Iron Monkey

    PR Zone 1 (15 minutes)
    A1: Bench Press

    PR Zone 2 (15 minutes)
    B1: Pendlay Rows

    That's really it for today. I've dedicated a PR Zone for each movement. While I rest I may do an antagonistic set here and there for helping recovery. I find this way works well for me (especially since I can't go from a bench to a pendlay row with the same bar fast enough). I may do some accessory stuff today too, like some power curls and a set or two of close grip weighted pushups; depends on how I feel I guess.

    Overhead Squats- i have been neglecting these as of late. they are one hell of an exercise and i can only do 50% of my BW :eek:

    Front Squats- i get so much more out of these than back squats due to the cross over i see on my olympic lifts.

    Chins- ive moved into Mass building rep ranges since summer is coming up :D
