Tuesday, 13 Mar

Strength day
Bear Complex

Attempt 5 complexes

 One complex is equal to 7 round of:
1 x power clean
1 x FS
1 x PP
1 x BS
1 x PP

Pick your starting weight carefully so you can go up in weight each complex, but by the end don't be afraid to fail. THIS SHOULD BE HARD!

The bar should only touch the ground at the start of the power clean (tap and go). If you let go of the bar at anytime during the complex = failed attempt. You can rest by holding the bar at any part of the body, just not on the ground.

I'm still around, just extraordinarily busy with school. Been reading a little bit, commenting even less. Sorry guys! I have a paleo challenge buddy for this month who went as far as offering me out of our commitment to eat healthy! It was tempting, like I said I'm pretty busy.. But haven't we all decided that healthy eating is a high enough priority that it isn't one that gets cut? I'd feel like a hypocrite if I quit, and besides I'd been really looking forward to it and wanna stick it out!

Found out a blogger who, in a sense, 'chased me out' of a large part of the blogging community recently stopped blogging. Don't worry, it was posted on another group on facebook that I'm a part of, I wasn't trolling her. Still frustrating though.

I have three papers due by April 3 and then I hope right into exam season, so don't expect to hear much from me! Best wishes to you all xoxoxox <3

finally, some fun pictures from friday:


  1. Awesome job on The Bear Complex! It's one of my favorites. Nice work.

  2. I'm going to email you about Cross Fit!! I don't know what most of this means, but it sounds like you're killing it as usual!

  3. I am always in awe of how consistent and STRONG you are. Both in purpose and constantcy...and I miss your posts!!!!

  4. Hey thanks for the positive comment...hope exams are going well. It was extremely exciting to realize that I could lift my body in a pull up!! It is way before I had expected and that is even more pleasing!! Look forward to your next post!!
