    -did 75# for SDs (never done them before, should have gone heavier), and green band for pullups. At 12 minute cut-off time had just one more pull-up to go. So I did the last one anyway to make me feel better.

    SP 40×4, 45 . left shoulder is still weak like north korea.

  18. Any plans for another on ramp program? I wish I had seen this in time to recommend it to my dad…

    1. Dan, we’re starting the next one on February 6th. It will be Mon/Wed at 6:30PM and Saturdays at 11:30AM for 12 sessions.

  19. Did the back squat (5×3) today (Saturday): 110, 120, 130, 140, 150 (PR!).

    The trainer spotting me said that 150 was way too easy for me and I could def. go heavier. So I tried 1-rep at 155# and got it without problems. I didn’t want to try heavier yet, though. Can’t wait for the next CFT.

  20. On Ramp #3: 1:20 1:23 1:14

  21. ON RAMP#3- ROW 500M-2:26/ ROUNDS 1:29/1:31/1:18

  22. On Ramp #3: 5oom row-1:57, then 1:16/1:15/1:09
