Start of 5/3/1

So, I've taken a hiatus from blogging because my workouts have not been worth writing about. I was having some issues that I thought might be stemming from my surgery so I backed off heavy lifting until I saw the Dr.

Anyway, I got back to it today and also started the 5/3/1 program....pretty excited about this. I'm hoping to add 100lbs to my back squat this year.


Push press
75xmax reps. Got 11

That was fun :)

Then a 10 min AMRAP
5 OHS@55lbs
10 KBS@35lbs

Got 7 rnds+5 OHS

Hmmm, potentially I could have gone heavier on the OHS but I'm a bit out of practice. And seeing as I only got 7 rnds maybe it was the right weight to use.
Surprisingly, it was the KBS that got damn heavy towards the end!

All in all it was a good day and did wonders for my mood to be back at the gym :D


  1. Well welcome back to the training world... Sometimes it's good to take off for an extended periods of time....

  2. Ha, thanks Terrance....I don't know about that but it's definitely good to be back :)
