Strength

Tuesday night was time for a strength workout.  The running took a lot out of me, but at least I did something.  The workout went like this:

Bend Double Underhand: 2xEasy Timber Tie
Bend Reverse Style: 8xMedium Timber Tie
Deadlifts with Mixed Grip: 3 x 135, 135, 185, 185; 1x225, 225, 225, 225;
3 Chin Ups
One Arm Push Press: 3/3 x 16k, 20k, 24k, 24k; 1/1x28k
Power Clean 135lbs
Load 25lb Block Weight to a Bench: 1/1, 2/2, 3/3

That was it.  My knees felt painful in a bad way after the deadlifts, but in a seperate spot than where they ached on Saturday.  I think I may have been banging my knees with the bar.  The alternate grip definitely feels stronger, but I like the double overhand grip better.

Not much else to say.  I have my exercises and reps planned for my variety days in the next cycle. Tuesday I will stick with sets of 5 reps, focusing on squats, renegade rows, windmills, bending, and block weights.  Thursday I will stick with sets of 3 reps, focusing on axle deads, pistol practice, turkish get ups, and maybe some sledge work.  It should be fun.
