Day 2

Day 2

Yesterday was a metcon only day.

3 rounds

10 power cleans(65#)
10 Wall balls
200 M row


This was a good one. Although, I forgot I had decided to change it to 4 rounds to make it a longer workout. The row really sucks the life out of you if you go all out. When I finished I basically just fell off the rower and rolled around on the ground. Always a good sign :)

On a side note. My old 1RM for cleans was 85#. After I finished CFSB, and hadn't done them much, it was 75#. Not good. But, yesterday I had no trouble at all getting 10 in a row at max MUST be more than 75. Today is a rest day but I think I'll stop by the box and find my 1RM so I know what it is for Friday.

The anabolic diet continues. I feel pretty good so far. I'd like to lose 5 lbs. I am not happy with my weight right now. I know I have put on some muscle but some of it is definitely fat. It's a struggle for me to decide what I want....super lean and not as strong or stronger but not quite as lean. If I lose 5 lbs I'll probably be somewhere in between. I can live with that.


  1. Put a rower in a metcon and it will suck every bit of energy out of you.

    For the anabolic diet are you eating breads and pastas for your "carb up" days?

  2. 5 pounds is good for you, be strong AND fit. Aesthetics are secondary. ;)

    good workout, Amy.

  3. Chris, I don't plan on it. Probably just lots of veggies and fruits. If I'm feeling crazy I might have a piece of bread. I doubt it.

    Jay, aesthetics are secondary??? Whaaaat?? But I'm all about lookin' hawt ;)

    Really, though, I should clarify...I don't care so much about the scale. I just need to lose a little body fat while keeping my muscle. Better?

  4. Yeah, I was telling Jay I use fruits to load up on carbs. I still want some pizza, but I'm terrified how much I'll actually eat lol.

    Keep up the hard work
