Finishing the Block Strong!

Published 04/05/2011

I guess it’s a good sign that I haven’t had/made time for blogging lately.  Between training others, myself, carpentering and traveling, there’s been less laptop hours (which is fine by me).  Anyway, I’ve trained in 4 week blocks since first starting triathlons thanks to plans I followed from beginnertriathlete.com.  Though the content of the blocks has certainly changed, the structure has not.  Here’s a recap of the final two workout weeks before the 4th (and my personal favorite) rest week.

3/15

RDL – 135×5, 225×3, 245×3, 255×3

Push Press – 135×5, 155×3, 165×3, 177×1

3/19

Hang Squat Cleans – 135×5, 155×3, 177×2, 177×3

Bent Over Rows – 135×5, 155×3, 177×3, 195×3

3/24

Deadlift – 225×5, 277×5, 317×3, 339×3, 355×4 (PR)

Press – 135×3, 141×3, 145×1, 145×3

That’s it – only 3 WOD’s in the last two weeks.  Sprinting has been pp’d due to stubbon and sore foot.  I’ll be testing it for the next block.  Speaking of, as I write today, rest week is over and it’s time to start a new one.  Hopefully it’s full of more PR’s.
