Training for the week Team Llama Bash



What's that dude in the background doing?

Lately I've added in a few extra days per week working on skill work for crossfit including things like running, double unders, pushups, handstands, burpees, bodyweight squats, pistols and pullups. I still keep 3 core lifting days per week.

I should probably stop posting all of my max effort attempts where my form falls apart. I promise my technique is not this terrible for every set!

465 x 1
500 x 1 - PR no belt

Back Squat vs chains 100lbs @ top, 20lbs @ bottom
185 x 5
205 x 5 - the chains felt terrible, probably won't do these next week.

Overhead Squat
165 x 5
185 x 5 - PR, these are finally coming along some!

I decided to stop writing what I eat on a daily basis but to instead make separate posts occasionally with what I eat. Let me know if you guys are mad about this and wanted more of my food log.

Mountain climbing or Rock climbing may be a dangerous activity, but with the help of proper training and good mountain climbing gear your risk can be minimized to a great extent.

Nice! I'm going to wear mountain climbing gear the next time I deadlift!
