SUNDAY

4, 3, 3, 2+2 handstand pushups with hands on cinder blocks
11, 11, 11, 12 pullups or chinups
7, 7, 7, 7 one legged squats +10lb
6, 6, 6, 6 one armed pushups
5, 5, 5, 5 bodyweight tricep extenions

done in circuit fashion, one set of each with 30 seconds between sets and 1 minute between circuits. the handstand pushups went much faster this time, im definately more explosive there. same with pullups only morre so, i can do more in a set but i just wanted to do better than last time. i still hate one legged squats. i need to clean up the pushup form. and i went lower than before with the extensions, im going far below the "bench" with each rep.

I'm a touch over 6', and a touch under 185# today. For the front squats, really focus on having massive tension in upper+lower back, and abs. Oh ya, keeping <3 reps is nice too. Will be checking your progress!

Thanks. its going to take alot of work with almost no squatting experience but i hope to be at a decent level at the end of this cycle. i have no rack so i will be limited by what i can clean until/if i build a makeshift rack i can fit into my already overcrowded pantry.

TUESDAY

4 sets 3 reps per arm one arm clean + press (60lbs)
4 sets 4 reps per arm one arm dumbell snatch (80lbs...all i can fit on the bar)

5 one legged squats +25lbs
3 assisted natural glute ham raises
x 4

5 weighted vest pullups (40lbs)
15 weighted vest pushups (40lbs)
x 4

4 sets 10 reps front squats (70lbs)

The snatch is really solid. Its a bit difficult to maintain the tension in all the right areas all at once as my attention shifts from one thing to the other but the last set was pretty good in that respect (with the front squats). Im glad I checked the video tutorials of it at t-nation.com because my form used to be way off and I think thats why they jacked up my shoulders the few times I did them before.
PB's:
100 Burpees: 5:35
1.5 Miles: 7:58
Deadlift: 375lbs @ 165lbs
Bench: 235 @ 165lbs
Squat: 245 @ 165lbs
