Mr. Dickie’s class utilizes an online logging system. All workouts will be posted on the main page prior to class (usually the day before). It is the responsibility of the student to POST their own results to the “comments” section of the workout post. Students are also required to maintain a personal blog. On it, you will post journal article assignments as well as keep your own workout log. A hand-written version for this is fine, but it is the RESPONSIBILITY of the STUDENT to submit hand-written training logs at the end of each week to be eligible for training log marks. Click here to review the steps to create your personal blog.
There will be a MIDTERM and FINAL Training Log grade. All assignments given up to those two points must be complete and inside your blog/training log.
GRADING – 4 = excellent, 3 = very good, 2 = satisfactory, 1 = needs improvement, 0 = incomplete
I will grade the results you post to “comments” ONLY. Remember, personal logs (online or written) will serve as a midterm and final “training log” grade. You must post daily results as well.
- Your first AND last name (in the “name” field)
- Class and/or Period
- Workout results (times, loads, etc.)
- Workout type (as recommended or “rx’d”; scaled version, or “SC”)
- Personal thoughts and comments (short paragraph)
- Outlook on tomorrow, goals, updates.
Here’s an example workout, followed by an example log entry…
Three rounds for time of:
- 400m run
- 25 pullups
- 50 double-unders
- 25 overhead squats, 95#
Time = 21:42 (scaled)
I used 65# instead of 95# for the overhead squats. I also did TRX rows instead of pullups.
This workout was miserable. Going from double-unders to overhead squats was really challenging. I found it hard to support the bar overhead while trying to catch my breath. Completing them, even with the lighter weight, really hurt my time. I felt pretty decent on the runs, and the rows didn’t hurt too much today, as I was able to do all of them unbroken! I think I would like to start incorporating more regular pullups into my training (I really wish we had more pullup areas!).
Solid workout…looking forward to tomorrow’s REST DAY.
