100 one-arm LCCJ in 10 minutes still out of reach

Saturday, May 17, 2008

Another decent nights sleep. Weight: 176 1/4 lbs.

Sumo DL 10 Day Linear PTTP Cycle: (lbs)
Cycle 2: Day 9: 210 x 1 x 5, 190 x 1 x 5

The 210 pulls were 18 on the Perceived Exertion scale as published by mc_kb. I had to really work to get those 5 reps. The 190's were about an 12. Working but lots left in the tank. Since the 210s were very tough, I decided to dispense with the off the block pulls today.

24kg x 7 x 5l/5r one-arm LCCJ 10/min, bell never put down
Total: 70 reps in just under 7 minutes

The higher pace combined with the exertion on the pulls forced me to stop early. I was going for 100 in 10 minutes buts its now clear I will only achieve this fully rested and after some more training at this much faster pace.

After a 10 minute rest, I decided to complete the 10 minutes and then crank up the reps/min for a short set:

24kg x 3 x 5l/5r one-arm LCCJ 10/min, bell never put down
24kg x 2 x 6l/6r one-arm LCCJ 12/min, bell never put down

That's it for today. A short but very demanding training session.
