Pole Vaulting Video


Really cool video here, as someone that's terrified of heights the ending actually made me dizzy, but still really neat

  • Bench Press (pinkies on knurling): 225*3 245*2 255*3 255*3
  • BB Rows: 185*3 205*3 225*3 235*2 
  • Push Press: 185*1 205*1 225*1 240*1 250*1(!!)
  • Sternum Pullups: 25*3 25*3 25*3
  • DB Farmer's Walks: 105*91 105*94

Back to class after spring break, I'm a bit tired today, circadian rhythm has to adjust to a shift of about 90 minutes in wake-up time.  I'll be fine within a day or two.  I got 250 on Push Press, which I'm happy with. I barely got 240, but figured I might as well go for 250 anyway, and I nailed it. SO happy. My all-time record is 255.  Rest of session I just wanted to really hammer out some weighted pullups, and do some farmers walks. Wasn't sure I was progressing on the farmer's walks, then I saw that the last time I did them with 105 I got 67 steps.  So yeah, definitely improving.

March 15, 2015 Sprinting


  • 100m: 8
  • Total: 800m

At BU again.  Forecast for this coming week is high 40s, and this coming Sunday may be around 41, if that holds up I may get to run outside at Harvard's track. One can hope.

  • Hanging Power Snatches: 95*5 115*5 125*3 135*3 135*3
  • Hanging Power Cleans: 135*5 145*5 155*4 165*2
  • Deadlift: 275*3 325*1 365*2 365*1
  • Standing Calves: 240*10 260*10
I'm still annoyed that the 135 sets have been harder on snatches lately, not sure why, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I end up 'star-fishing' my legs out to the side on almost every rep at 135 the last couple weeks. Deadlift form felt fine, going to start putting weight back on again.

March 10, 2015 Lower Body

Very low energy here today, I'm distracted by internship searching, and some other stuff. 


  • Squats: 345*1,1,1,1
  • Front Squats: 275*1 295*1
  • Split Squats: 10, 10 -looking at hip balance
  • Seated Calves: 115*12 115*12
  • Dead Bugs: 10, 10
I'm pretty distracted today, so just wanted to do a quick session.  Also took a look at my hip balance; when I usually do split squats I notice that with my right leg being out in front my hips are very crooked.
