Oly/Gymnastics Project – Month 1, Week 2, Day 3


Got answers from the doc – cleared to go “1/2 speed” for the next 8 weeks.
I am interpreting this to mean to use Brian PCF’s guideline of minimum risk and not push myself right now.
So I’ve decided to leave reps in the tank or drop back in weight if I need to that day. And not running. Because I am always looking for excuses not to run.
Thankfully, I’ve felt pretty decent strength-wise the past couple of days.

If I see any improvements during this training cycle, I will be more than thrilled.


3 rounds
3 35# power clean
3 strict ring dips

Push Press
35(2) – 55(3) – 77.5 (2-2-2-2-2)
Thanks Christy 0530 for looking at my form to make sure I wasn’t push jerking these reps.

77.5(3) – 130(3) – 150(3) – 165(5)
Made it a point to leave reps “in the tank”.

4 rounds – 3 strict ring dips. Supersetted with deadlifts.
Concentrated on full range of motion (biceps on rings) + NO toe assist.
Ring dips felt better today than they have in a very long time.

End time: 6:19am.

Overall – a better day than anticipated. Doing the gymnastics stuff during warmup helps with time savings + equipment availability.
I anticipate this being an even trickier situation once we move to Patriot.
