Week 1: Day 7: Sunday, June 10th, 2012
Today was a good day of training, as I have not pushed the prowler sled in over a year… It was good to hit this one because I have been reading alot of good articles and research on the prowler sled. The prowler sled is great for single leg strength, since it targets each leg during each drive off the ground. It is also a great tool for recovery, and also a great tool for system energy tools to use during lactate work and high intense efforts.
After the prowled sled, I performed a chest to bar and thruster workout, which I felt pretty strong up until about the 4th set…. I went unbroken on every set, but my fourth set was the slowest at around 53 seconds, due to some awkward dizziness.. I possibly can contribute this to lack of calorie intake over the last two days, and have been busy with the gym, and neglected to eat as much as I was over the last two weeks.
I am beginning to see the importance of fuel intake for myself, as I have in the past been very suceptible to being lazy with eating enough food throughout the day. I have changed this pattern, and have begun to eat more, and get more carbs into my system.
Sunday, June 10th, 2012 Workout:
A. Prowler Sled Pushes @ 97% effort, 5 sets of 25 seconds pushes, rest 5:00 minute between sets.
B. 5 sets of the following @ 100% of 15 Thrusters @ 95 lbs/15 Chest to bar Pull Ups
4 Sets under 46 seconds
1 Set @ 54 seconds
I felt good during these sets, except for one, where I messed up on my butterfly, and last 4 pull ups were regular kips… The rest of the sets were fluent and quite easy.
