Training Log of Josh Hanagarne, World's Strongest Librarian




7-12-2010 BUPs, c&ps, rows, plate curls, juggling

tonight I hit density PRs in bottoms up pressing the 40kg and plate leverage with a 25lb

Big density prs on rowing the 40kg kb

volume pr on cleaning and pressing the 28kg kb, with a clean before every press, 69 in 10 minutes

Juggling consistency with the 16 improves. Starting to string together more patterns

7-9-2010 Just playing around

No goals today. Just went into the gym and had fun.

Lots of kettlebell pressing with the 32 kilo kettlebell, pullups, muscle up practice on the bar, ring dips, and some hand to hand block weight tosses.

A great training session.

7-6-2010: one arm chin practice and “Kelly”

Crossfit and biofeedback experiment continues.

Tonight I set a baseline time for “Kelly” of 34:59. Not a workout built for big guys! I did not push hard and will be able to cut my time relatively easily.

Also got a big surprise: I can now hold myself up for the one arm chin and lower myself about 25% under control. I’ve wanted the oac for a long time. It’s coming.

Still not feeling 100%, but bent 2 5.5” g5 bolts and kinked one more to 90 degrees.

Bent one #1 draft horseshoe.

Time to sleep.

2-25-2010 Almost better

Got sick AGAIN on Tuesday. Tics have screwed up my shoulders, so today I did a lot of rotational, loaded work.

Then, lots of swings with the 28k

ring dips from knees (still too unstable at full extension)

some rolling thunder pulls with 160
