Focus for my 41st year

24Nov10


Gee Brain, What do you wanna do tonight?
Same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world!

In last year’s essay – my goal was to “move around my bodyweight easily.” We’ve made significant progress towards that goal.

– Deadlift 2x bodyweight (270) – Well, managed to make it past the 200 lb mark. I’ll take it.

– Get 135 overhead by any means necessary – I’m really close. I have successfully gotten 105 overhead as a clean and jerk. Haven’t tested this in awhile, but if my recent workouts are an indication, I have a feeling that I may be able to throw more weight overhead.

– Doing pullups without bands during WODS – This gets ugly on occasion. Still don’t kip very well – but I can dead hang like a champ. With weight!

– Doing ring dips without bands during WODS – Can do this, but I will need to make more effort to focus on form so I don’t drop my toes as often.

– Get a handstand pushup – unsupported. Don’t have an unsupported handstand pushup yet, but I can DO a handstand pushup as of last week. This falls squarely in the “things I never thought my body could do” category.

– Get a muscleup – Not close here. But maybe by my 41st birthday….

– The regular sub 8-minute mile? Running sucks 🙂

I’m keeping some of the goals from last year
– Deadlift 270 lbs
– 135# or more overhead by any means necessary
– Get a muscleup

New goals
– Squat over 200 lbs
– Press over 100 lbs
– Squat Clean over 150 lbs
– Squat Snatch over 100 lbs
– Do a double-under workout unbroken.

Notice these are dominantly strength goals. Brian PCF and I are testing the theory that strength gains = metcon gains.
This theory will be tested through our evil plan.
Plan goes into effect December 5th.
Bwahahahaha……..

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
