TitanFit WO

Push Press
Push Jerk

I left my numbers at the gym. But my max reps were 130 lbs., 175 lbs., 185 lbs., respectively. I still have alot of work to do on my pressing strength.

Another One Down

Today, due to a sore lower back, I decided to skip “Josh” and work on pressing. Aside from lunch, I’ve been kosher with the diet today. I am really on a kick for salmon patties. I told Herb today that I think we should start a TitanFit Recipe Book with Zone friendly meals. Even outside of the gym I’m frequently asked “how do you get started” or “what do you eat” or “how do you avoid eating the same things” and the most popular “you don’t eat enough”. Collectively, as the gym continues to grow and everyone tries new recipe ideas I think we could amass a fair size volume cookbook. We’ll call it TitanCook. Thoughts?

TitanFit WO

Press – Worked up to 1 RM of 120 lbs. Got close at 125 lbs., need a little more work/focus on mechanics

Weighted pull-ups between sets. Worked up to 63 lbs.

I’m going to attempt “Josh” tomorrow assuming the back soreness has subsided.

Also did a little repair work on the old rower. Now it doesn’t fall apart when sat upright.

More Pressing Work

Today I worked on my pressing. I got quite a few reps in, and maxed out at 120 lbs. I’m making some progress, so that’s good. I’m going to finish each workout with some push-ups for the next few months (assuming the WOD doesn’t involve many push-ups).

My diet has been good thus far, but I probably won’t make it through the Super Bowl. I plan to have some chips and queso/salsa, but I’ll limit my quantities. On the bright side, I went and checked out the local Kroger supermarket this afternoon. To my delight they have a “Nature Foods” section. In addition, they have a wonderful produce selection. So Jessica signed up for the “Perks” card and today alone we saved $24. At least that’s what the receipt said. She believes everything she reads! I’ll get to the bottom of the savings when I have some time to compare list prices with the other local supermarkets and crunch through the mathematics.

I’m feeling really good as of late and look forward to some hard work at TitanFit beginning tomorrow! Stay tuned for the details…
