So I'm trying the full functionality of my fitbit app for weightloss since i don't want to pay for weight watchers.

Seems to be okay so far. I wonder how accurate the calories burned are.

One more session of cardio-rehab and I can start working out on my own again.

Probably fairly accurate if you're not whackin' off. There's a pic of the text somewhere in the surrogate pic thread about this. Makes me laugh.

1 minute of mountain climbers is a hell of a thing. I figured I could do that, no problem. I can just get to 30s.

So I can't keep up with the fat guys in my cycling club so I'm starting a casual and b group ride. Lots of interest! Turns out a lot of the fast guys wives want to ride.

We are also starting a paddling club! I need a roof rack for my car...

What are standard mountain climbers? I need a pic to see what you're attached to.

I never bothered to time it on the TRX. I just count reps. Around 30, my shoulders hate me.

Okay, thanks. For TRX mountain climbers, the feet are elevated in loops at the ends of straps.

Rode 72 miles in just under 7 hours today. The last 15 miles we had an incredible tailwind, about 15mph from directly behind us. We were probably riding 30% faster with 20% left effort.

Hm, shit is getting real on a couple of the 5x5 exercises, like overhead press.

And I started adding pullups / chinups so I can deal with climbing in July. Today was kind of weak (tiger)sauce, especially trying to do that after overhead presses and deadlifts, but it's a start.

I had to quit the wod yesterday. Got one of those exercise migraines during the strength part and then my back cramped up on a 400m run during the wod. Something was telling me not to do that shit yesterday. Back today to try again.

Tweaked my lower right back pretty good on Sunday. Still feel a minor twinge there when walking around today. I figured this was not the day to squat 140 and do barbell rows.

I probably did it with form breaking down on overhead press during an early set. I corrected after that. Lesson learned. Form is everything.

5x5
squat 140
bench 125
barbell row 115 but I failed 3 reps across sets 1 and 3

3x10 dips, only dropped the last one.

and my back feels okay - I was worried going in.

5x5 squat 145
Failed a rep every set on overhead press at 95 lbs, plus an extra the last one, so it ended up being close to 5x4 . As in, 4/4/4/4/3

1x5 deadlift 155

And clearly I have work to do on chinups at 5/4/3.

Plus some ab work, and a brief HIIT cardio session (15 minutes, including 8 HIIT splits). Trying not to overdo the cardio so the rest of the program doesn't go flat. But I need to drop some fat from a bit too much eating, and I discovered today I've lost endurance for not doing much cardio in the last two months (duh ).

Anyway: a good solid pretty-heavy workout today at current strength level.

If you are doing crossfit, I would think that's enough cardio built in to keep your heart rate up. How often are you crossfitting versus other activities? Do you take any rest days?

I try to get to the box 3x per week, usually M/W/F. and I do pretty much nothing on my off days. I'm just looking for some rest-day active recovery/steady-state cardio stuff. nothing too hardcore, certainly not doing any time trial type rides. just something to get out and get the blood moving.

I think I'm gonna do this in October, if I can find someone to be on a team with.

Hey Zach, you wanna make a roadtrip to KC in October?

Looks fun, but probably can't make the trip. First wod is interesting. Never done the tricep extended hold. 5RM deadlift would be somewhere between 295 and 315. I did 3x315 a while back & had some left. 3rd looks like a pain in the ass. Just do super slow wallballs so the rower has a chance to clock some calories. 4 looks pretty simple too, but maybe not.
