Lifting day at wccf.

5×5 shoulder press
65-75-80-82-85
3×5 front squat
135-155-165-170*-170

Since we had the racks and weights out, I thought I should get a heavy single done, so I posted one at 175.

Probably the best part of the workout was the positive attitude of the young athlete with whom I shared the rack.  He really made it an adventure.  Of course, his shoulder press was about the same as my squat.  So there was a lot of resetting of the weight on the bar.  But he was a gung-ho lifter and a real motivation and inspiration.

I really like the heavy lifting days and think that the whole crossfit thing would work better with heavy lifting one exercise, maybe two, for decent reps and sets and *then* the typical metcon.  I know – crossfit heresy.  Still, I think it is a great way to focus on both the 1 and 3 rep max strength while still pushing forward the high intensity, high reps, low weight aspect.

    • Sorry, that was a mistake using the phone instead of my usual computer based update.
