Happy New Year!

So, I had a great month of comparison to last December. Evrything was far and away better than last year.

An example was 100 bodyweight deadlifts for time. Last year it took 36 minutes flat. This past Wednesday it took 16:46. Granted, I am just as sore as last year, but the improvement is huge.

Max talks about compound interest with training and I am witnessing it first hand.
I am looking forward to a great 2011 in all areas of my life.

December to Remember

Or is it Remember last December? So, trying to figure out what to do this December, I decided to revisit last December's plan. It'll be fun to see how things have changed.

Today's WOD was 5 sets of 21 reps of 40lb. dumbbell chest presses(last year I used a 135 pound barbell) followed by 50 squats.

Last year this workout took over 29 minutes. Tonight it was 13:51.

Swimming will be done on the weekends for easier scheduling.

Not sure how the 40lb dumbells compare to 135lb barbell.
