Wendler Deadlift cycle 1 week 1
Deadlift warm up sets, 275x5, 315x5, 356x5 I missed the 6th rep

Deadlift 5x10 at 210 with 1 min rest. that was easy except for the conditionning aspect of it. I was breathing really hard at the end

October 1
Wendler Bench cycle 1 week 1
Bench warm up sets; 170x5, 196x5, 222.5 x4 failed the fifth rep due to a bad movement on the third rep that took out some wind out of me

Walking lunges step
thruster 95
knee 2 elbow

took me around 30min:30s
After that workout I was destroyed but went ahead and tried to complete

Bench 5x10 at 130 with 1 min rest. I failed on set 4 and 5 around rep 7,8. Had to rerack take a few second and complete the reps. Doing the 10' rep after the conditionning was not a good idea

Wendler cycle 1 week 1 squat / Weighted Pull up
I am back on my Wendler/Crossfit hybrid after a devastating (for my body) Smolov Jr for squat. I took last week as a deload week and I am back at it this week. The heavy squat volume was hard on my right knee who started swelling again. Lot's of ice and streching last week and it's feeling better now.

warm up sets, 272x5, 315x5, 356x4+1
I don't know what happened I felt weak after the fourth rep, I had to re-rack for 5 sec and complete the fifth rep. I might have started too heavy on the squat cycle. I felt it was a low volume today

weighted pull up.
I did a major reset on that one
warm up sets, bwx5, bw+25x5, bw+55x7

finished with
squat 5x10 at 210 with 1 min rest. Reps where easy but the problem was mainly with my conditionning. I was breathing really hard after the second set.

Deload week 
Wanted to just do main page wod this morning but couldn't finish it. I couldn't beleive

it was
50 Overhead squat 45#
100 situp
25 overhead squat 115#
50 knee to elbow
10 overhead squat 185#
20 GHD

I couldn't perform a single rep at 185, My legs where just giving up on me. I normally have no problem with OHS 185. Usually my core is the weak element in my OHS but today the legs where the problem. They couldn't stay stable enough to maintain the rest. I had to forget about the 10 last OHS rep and I completed the 20 GHD.

After that workout, when I climbed up the stair to take my shake my wife told me I was white. I was feeling dizzy and weak. I really have to take it easy this week if I want to recover and continue with my previous program

Smolov Jr Squat week 3 day 4
Cycle is Finally over. It took me around 55 min to complete all the rep this morning. Training is not fun anymore and I don't have anything left in the tank to do other exercises

10x3 at 365 Squat

then finished with

30 rep of clean and jerk 155 in 8:34

Next week I deload and I will start a Smolov Jr for the press. Upper body has always been much less taxing so I should be able to handle it better. After that I am back to my old program

Smolov Jr Squat week 3 day 3
This is not funny anymore, working out is becoming a burden. I am falling asleep around nine and I am starting to struggle finding energy for other stuff in life. Everytime I go under the bar I wonder if my legs still have enough to complete the reps. My legs are actually feeling weaker than ever. On any effort like running I feel that they can't follow anymore

squat 8x4 at 345 but I took around 5+ min  between each set to make sure I wasn't going to be dizzy. Still I almost missed the last rep

tried to do wendler 5-3-1 on press but again couldn't even complete the second heavy set

can't wait for all this to be over tomorrow. I am switching back to my old program after a week of deload
