7/29 throws

Braemar best of 31'9
Open best of 41'2"
Heavy hammer vest of 74
Light hammer best of 96
I think in figured some things out in wob. Apparently not only are you allowed to use your legs, but it's actually helpful to do so.   Who knew.

I haven't thrown in a while, so it felt good to sling some stuff even though nothing went particularly far. Good stuff.

August 10th. Home games in La Crosse. Woot. The plan is to finish put tomorrow with squat then do speed work and throwing Monday-Wednesday before shutting it down to rest up. I think that is what worked for me last games. I'm also too lazy to look.

8/2 squat
This went very very poorly. From warmups I could tell my back was fatigued and by the time I hit my working set, my erectors felt like they were going to shoot out my back. The plan was 340x4x4 then 340x4+ but It went a little something like this:
Bar x 20, 135x10, 225x10, 315x5, 365x1, 340x4 felt like absolute shit, 340x1 that's enough of that. Plenty of strength there but I didn't feel like exacerbating the hurty back a week out fron competition. Drop down to 225x3x10 high bar slow eccentric focusing on pushing the knees out and staying completely upright. These felt good and easy, and I got a nice quad pump, so all was not lost.

RDLs
225x3x10 nice and light and stretchy. That is all.

Time to rest and eat a bunch.

8/6 Speed deads

135x10, 225x10, 315x5, 365x3, 405x2,425x2x2

2.5" deficit
405x2x2, 315x3x3

Bent over DB rows
100sx3,3,5,5,5

Everything felt more sluggish than I wanted, so I figured I'd go throw with Katie to get the snap back.

14lbs stone. Stands x3 best of 42
Glide x5 best of 47

42 wfd x3 best of 41'11"

Sheaf x lots. Monkey arms+ head down = big ups and no wierd hooky crap.

Wob pulls x some. Still leaving too many out front, but my good ones seem to be really good ones.

Glad Katie prodded me into throwing, even though it meant having to stop watching Detective Pikachu.

8/10 La Crosse Irishfest Highland Games
This is our hometown games put on by Jason and Jane Clevenger. They do an amazing job every time and always make it enjoyable for the athletes and spectators. I threw okay. I ended up taking second to Luke, so that's coo.

Heavy hammer-70' blah. Broke my left blade during warm-ups. Ended up using Katie's left boot. It was very tight and her blades are slightly shorter, but it worked fine. The ground was really dry and hard and I was nervous about trying to lean into my blades. Mostly just me being a headcase.

Light hammer 98' kinda the same deal as heavy but not quite as bad.

Braemar- 29' high. This was disappointing. threw this stone 31a couple weeks ago, but couldn't seem to find the handle/tuck again.

Open- 39'8" I think. Again disappointed. Threw 42 last time. Oh well.

42lb Heavyweight- 39'11" that was fine

Lightweight- 61' trending in the right direction. Probably the highlight of the day

Caber- got a good pull on a pretty big caber but no turn. Felt like I could turn it given another chance, but it broke.

Wob-14' super disappointing. It started raining pretty hard during this but stopped before my shots away 15. I was just being a baby and doing dumb stuff. 15 should be automatic

Looking back, It was a day of ups and downs, but closer to the consistency I'm hoping for. I only fouled two throws, a heavy hammer and a heavy weight, both because I lost the implement early. That's pretty good for me. It didn't used to be uncommon for me to scratch 2,3, or even 4 throws between the two weights. As far as that goes, I'm pleased. I would have liked to perform better given that it was a home games, but it is what it is. It was a great time throwing and hanging out with everyone after, and the corned beef tacos were freaking amazing. 10/10 would recommend.

8/12 back in the gym for some OHP

Barx20, 95x10, 115x8, 135x5, 155x3, 175x1, 185x1, 160x5, 160x3x3

Z press off pins at chin level
Bar x10, 95x2x5, 105x5, 115x2x5

These were difficult. They made my hips and hammies cramp pretty good. I need to work on the flexibility of my grundle region apparently. That being said, I think they'll be beneficial. There's no way for me to cheat them without falling over. Good stuff.

Dips were kinda hurty on my left shoulder, so I stuck to bodyweight
4x15. Shoulder felt better after doing these.

Not sure what the next thingie I did is called. I laid face down on a 45ish degree incline and did dumbell Y raises 2x15@15s

Lean away db lateral raises
3x15 per arm @ 15s.

Did cardio when I got home by chasing a woodchuck out of my neighbor's yard with a broom. Had him on the run and the little turd squared up on me. They may chuck wood, but he couldn't chuck broom.

8/13 deads

135x10, 225x10, 315x8, 365x5, 405x5, 445x7, 405x5
Deads haven't felt good lately. I seem to have lost my snap off the floor. That being said the program for today was 445x5+ and I got 7, so I guess that's a win. There was more there, but I was being cautious since my upper and mid back were feeling wonky coming into the day. The last 405x5 was just for a wee bit of extra volume.

Snatch grip shrugs
295x4x10. Still liking these a lot.

Landmine rows with neutral grip thingie from the cable machine
3x10@160. I haven't done these before, but I like them. The only way I can do rows without flaring up my tendonitis is with a neutral grip. I'm bored with dumbell rows, so these will probably stick around for a while.

Took the dog for a nice long walk afterwards. There were two rabbits sitting right in front of him on the boulevard, and he stopped to smell a flower. Such a disappointing dog.

8/15 OHP

Pin press at nose level
155x4x5, 155x8

Seated shoulder press pause at the bottom
60s x3x10

Then the wheels fell off. Tried to do dips, stabby pain in left shoulder. Tried to do lateral raises, stabby pain in left shoulder. This is getting annoying.

Dumbell skull crushers
30s x2x10 flat, 30sx1x10 inclined

Tricep cable pushdowns
2x10

My dog does the same shit. There could be a squirrel orgy happening in front of him, and he'd rather smell a rusty mailbox post with week old dog urine on it. 

What a let down.

Right? My dog is a lab/pit mix. I thought maybe there'd be a chance he could retrieve a duck. Nope. Terrified of water along with certain hats, bikes, long grass, and doors that aren't all the way open. Luckily he's adorable.

Anywho, evening throws:
Heavy hammer:73,75,75
Light hammer:100, 100, 99, 98
Hammers felt okay. Didn't have a lot of confidence in my left boot I cobbled back together, but all things considered, thumbs up.

Heavyweight:
3 really bad throws. Wasn't pushing the weight around enough out of the back. I knew that was the case, but just didn't have the beans to do it. I figured I'd just shut it down rather than risk ingraining bad habits.

Lightweight: 57,59,57 then my hand said that was enough.

I felt pretty stiff and sore coming into this session, so I'm okay with how it went.

8/16 squat

Bar x20,135x10,225x10,315x5,365x3,add belt, 405x2,425x1, 370x8

The prescribed work today was 370x5+ but I decided I wanted more volume since next week is another competition prep week and this is the best squat has felt in a while, so I decided to do the workout I had to pull off of two weeks ago which was 340x4x4. Felt good.

Stiff leg deads
225x4x8
Normally I do RDLs but wanted to switch it up.

That was that. Hopefully I'll get to throw this weekend then next week will be my normal comp prep of 2 days of speed lifting and one day of throwing before Throwing for the Cure on Saturday.

8/18 throws
Very, very sore legs. I spent the weekend eating a bunch, sitting in the sun watching softball and swimming. A good time, but not the best scenario for great throws. Got some reps in anyway.

Braemar: best of 31
16lb stone stands: best of 37
Heavy hammer: best of 74
Light hammer: best of 98
56: best of 26

Luke gave me a good reminder to get the hammer out away from me and drag it across on the entry to the first wind. Hopefully, I'll remember that on Saturday.

Yes, that happened as well. She was going pretty well until I got all cold sweaty and tummy turny. It was nothing a good poop and a glass of salt water couldn't cure. I think the long days in the sun this weekend got my electrolytes all out of whack. Being lactose intolerant and eating a big bowl of ice cream followed by sheafing probably didn't help either.

Throwing for the Cure highland games. Awesome games all around. The waether was perfect. The Clevengers put on another amazing games. The work Jane and Jason put into making these games run smoothly is inspiring. You'd be hard pressed to find a family more dedicated to the games than them, not to mention their work with the ACS and all the money they bring in for a very worthy cause. As for the throws, they were up and down.

WOB: utter poop. Left two pretty high throws barelt out front at 14. I knew how to correct it but didn't feel like my body would do it. Tried putting a bandaid on it by taking a half step back. Made the correction I didn't think I could make and smashed the bar on the way up. Stupid me. Should have trusted my technique. 13' embarrasing.

Sheaf: 28' tied my PR so that's cool. Had the height but not the arc at 29.

Braemar:29'11" didn't feel bad, I just didn't have the pop.

Open stone: 40' that's fine

Heavyweight: 35' poop. Absolute poop. Fouled my first. Walked through my second for the mark. Gave it some beans on my third and fouled again on a better but still not great throw. Low point was off, stuck in my hand, pulled me out the front. Fiddlesticks.

Lightweight: 59' whatevs.

Heavy hammer: 76' I know there was more there, but I missed the finish. Compared to how I've been throwing though, I'll take it.

Light hammer: 105'10" highlight of the day. Hit 101 on my second, so I felt good to give it all the beans on my third and it actually worked for once.

Caber: long stick with a ridiculous bow to it. I could never tell where the crap it was at as far as it leaving my shoulder. Got one good pull on it, but it didn't want to go over. Probably about 89 degrees. Not the best end to the day, but if I just focus on light hammer and forget everything else, I feel pretty good.

I think that ends the season for me barring something unforeseen happening. I'm still going to try to throw at least once a week until the weather turns to crap. This was my best season in a long, long time, but still much room for improvement obviously.

Great work dude. And all thanks to not benching too! 

Now, can we convince Luke to stop benching? 


Hmmm...
