Journal: Novice on HCT-12
I always got minor questions about the routine popping up here and there, so I figured I might as well start a journal so people can see what I'm doing if I need advice.
This is my week three on HCT-12, and I've been starting pretty easy. Today was the first WO that felt hard (thanks to DLs).
Here are the last three WOs:
B (Jan 12.)
90kg x 6+2+2+2
75kg x 6+2+2+2 (first time I did these)
Seated calf stuff
30kg x 6+2+2+2
25kg+ez-bar x 6+2+2+2
Abs and back extensions.
A (Jan 14th)
7,5kg x 6+2+2+2 (body weight is something like 93-94 kg)
DB floor press
34kg x 5+2+2+2 (couldn't do six on the first set. I really love this one)
74kg x 6+2+2+2
20kg x ? (First time I tried these.)
Close grip BP
55kg x 6+3+3+3
B (Jan 17.)
120kg x 5 (personal best, and I felt in full control)
110kg x 5
I was planning to do six reps on the back-off set, but I felt too close to technique-failure on the fifth rep so I stopped. I might drop the back-off set later, as I have had very good progress just doing one straight set of five while doing Starting Strength. I felt pretty tired after this too.
120kg x 6+2+2+2
30kg+ez-bar x 6+2+2+2 (Weight was a bit to heavy on this one. Couldn't have done one more rep on any of the sets)
3x10 body weight
Today's WO felt incredibly awesome. Straight into top 5 list of workouts ever :)
