185xmax. Got 12

I don't get it. I should have done better.

Eat more, eat more, eat more. Really? I don't know. I've been pissed about this all day. Maybe I don't want to eat more. I need to decide what I really want to do. My max sets lately have been shitty.

Farmers walks with 2 70lb KB's
4 passes across the gym

Shit load of pull ups

I did try the rope today and climbed it, no problem. Twice.

Amazing how a great PR can give you a high all day and a shitty performance can fuck with your head.


  1. you had a good day. 185 for 12 is solid.

    I know you are frustrated with the slow moving progress but keep in mind progress is still progress.

    I suggest eating more, you know that, and make sure during the deload week you actually completely deload. Instead of ball-breaking metcons do rowing intervals which are easy to recover from, do some sprints, do some light bodyweight exercises, etc.

    I can tell you that I have been eating a lot more lately and I haven't gained a pound and my progress is still increasing rather well.

    Maybe you need to do the same, its up to you to figure that out but it may be worth a shot.

    Either way, you are progressing and don't fret over a bad day, we all get them

  2. It ain't progress if I pulled 185 for 13 2 weeks ago. Same with my push press and I had a shitty squat day last time I squatted.

    If it's my eating. Well, I'm at a cross roads. Do I want to gain 15lbs so I can lift 50lbs more?

    You haven't gained weight, I'm surprised. Nikki has. I just don't know what I want.

    I can take it easier during my next deload week. But if you read my blog you'll see I DON'T do ball busting metcons. Really :)

  3. Woman, your progress is great!!! Stop with this nonsense....
    You need to start eating before you eat more.. You barely eat anything during the day.. You are making GREAT progress.. Look at where you were a year ago!
    I was always a big girl and will remain a big girl. You cant compare my frame to yours. We are built different. You need to look at your body weight and what you lift.. I have 30lbs on you. You are almost at 2x your BW DL.... Me Not close to that... Look at your press and your squat... You will soon be able to press your body weight...
