Thank you, Bob! That means a lot. Unfortunately, I don't feel like a beast, though....

Firearms Training

5 hours of pistol, shotgun, rifle, and bean-bag qualification, along with use-of-force review. Always a good time.

7/31/2019

Stretch: legs only.

This session got cut short due to having to go to work; the warm-up and the power cleans got cut.

8/1/2019

MA Training

TKD Testing: 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Since it was a summer testing, it was a bit smaller than usual, but we still had a good group of about 10 testing, with a mix of ranks. Two were testing for their 1st dans, and they performed well.

8/2/2019

Strength Training

Warm-up: 5 broad jumps, 5 box jumps, 5 medicine ball throws, 5 medicine ball slams.
Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 265x1, 300x5, 300x5, 300x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 95x3, 115x1, 135x5, 135x5, 135x5.
Deadlifts: 135x5, 205x3, 225x1, 265x1, 295x5.
Stretch: kicks stretches, leg swings, quads, arm/shoulders and shoulder dislocations.

Press is getting heavy, and I put my belt on for the last two sets. It seemed to help a bit.

8/5/2019

Strength Training

Warm-up: 5 broad jumps, 5 box jumps, 5 medicine ball throws, 5 medicine ball slams.
Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 265x1, 305x5, 305x5, 305x5.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 135x3, 165x1, 192.5x5, 192.5x5, 192.5x5.
Power Cleans: 115x3, 137.5x3, 137.5x3, 137.5x3.

MA Training

Taught TKD Class: 5:30 - 6:30 pm. A small class, which was ok, because after basics I had each of the students doing their previous forms for review. During one-steps, I stopped them to explain that they need to use them to help build up their ability to react to the attacking techniques, and not "jumping the gun" so to speak.

Black Belt Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Do-Kangs: 1-4, breaking them down for the 1st dans to get a handle on them all. Did #4 twice, which is basically a lot of kicking combinations. Three-steps: 1 and 2. Stretch

This was a busy day. I had to cut back on the sets for power cleans because I finished up lifting prior to teaching the 5:30 class. I got on the floor early to try to stretch out, but it was not a good stretching session. Then after that class, it was straight into Black Belt Class. It's good to have this class back, and there were 10 of us there, if I recall. A good training day.

8/7/2019

Strength Training

Warm-up: 5 broad jumps, 5 box jumps, 5 medicine ball throws, 5 medicine ball slams.
Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 265x1, 310x5, 310x5, 310x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 95x3, 115x1, 137.5x5, 137.5x5, 137.5x5.
Stretch: kick stretches, leg swings, arms and shoulders.

MA Training

TKD Class: 5:30 - 6:30 pm. I assisted in teaching this class. One of our third dans is going to be taking on some teaching, and I was initially planning on training in this class, but instead just leant a helping hand so the third dan can get some teaching experience.

Kicking Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Another class that's been resurrected. This is a pretty informal class, where we pull out the Powerline bags and do several stations of kicking. We usually pair up on the bags, and do 5 of each kick back and forth, then switch and do the other leg, and then move onto the next kicking exercise, which is about four different kicking drills per "station." We also do some kicking drills using the paddles. Things were going really well, until I pulled my hamstring doing axe kicks on the paddles (I hate axe kicks). I wasn't doing the kicks very high, either, but the pulling down of the kick aggravated my right hamstring. This happened towards the end of the class, so I had a good workout in up to that point. Stretched afterwards.

I skipped my pulling exercise in weights, the deadlifts, today. I did my lifting prior to class, and with the initial thought that I would be actively working out in two classes, didn't want to put the extra strain on my hamstrings (which didn't help in the end, anyways). If all is well on Friday, I'll deadlift then.

8/9/2019

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 265x1, 315x1.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 135x3, 165x1, 195x5, 195x5, 195x5.

Well, best laid plans...since the hamstring pull in kicking class, I didn't trust myself under the bar with my work sets on squat. I did one heavy single, and called it. Bending over and just getting into deadlift position put strain on the pull, so I skipped it. I skipped the warm-ups, too, for fear of the explosive movements ripping the hamstring up.

8/12/2019

Strength Training

Warm-ups: 5 broad jumps, 5 box jumps, 5 medicine ball throws, 5 medicine ball slams.
Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 265x1, 315x5, 315x5, 315x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 95x3, 115x1, 140x5, 140x5, 140x5.
Deadlifts: 135x5, 205x3, 225x1, 265x1, 300x5.
Stretch: kick stretches, toe touches, quads.

MA Training

Taught TKD Class: 5:30 - 6:30 pm. Basics: pointing out getting side kicks chambered properly, and overall breaking things down for lower ranks. Forms: quite a bit of time on forms, learning the new ones, being week one post-testing. One-steps: learning newest one-steps.

Black Belt Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Do-kangs 1-4, Three-steps 1-3.

So, today was a day of highs and lows. I felt great about my strength training session, hitting 315 for 3x5, and getting deadlift back up to 300 for 5. But today was a rough one for my knees; they had been hurting most of the day, and when it came time for Black Belt Class, my performance was not nearly as good as it was last week. But, I fought through it, finished it out, and hit the NSAIDS after class. Perhaps next week will be better all-around.

20 August- instructor's meeting with the owner and other assistant instructors to develop a plan of attack for curriculum development spanning the time between now and end of 2019.

the last few months- been consistently inconsistent in attending classes and working out due to work/lack thereof and health circumstances.

19 August- went on a really long walk around my neighborhood. when I got to the baseball field I went through the basics from base to base in different stances.

8/21/2019

Strength Training

Warm-up: 5 broad jumps, 5 box jumps, 5 medicine ball throws, 5 medicine ball slams.
Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 265x1, 295x3, 305x3, 305x3.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 135x3, 165x1, 190x5, 190x5, 190x5.
Power Snatch: 65x2, 75x3, 95x3, 95x3.
Stretch: kick stretches and hamstrings.

With school starting up, the schedule is getting crazy. Lots of running kids back and forth to stuff, and more inconsistency when it comes to lifting. In order to try to keep the intensity up on my squats, I've cut the sets of 5 to 3, but am still struggling with the missed time. I've decided to switch to the power snatch from the power clean. I may get back to the clean, but I prefer the snatch as I don't have to mess with the rack position of the clean, and I like the longer pull.

MA Training

Taught TKD Class: 5:30 - 6:30 pm. Basics, forms, one-steps, and sparring. Mainly spent time harping on the kids about how the next testing is their testing, and not my testing, and they have to start really pushing themselves to improve, and not wait for instructors to get after them. Taking ownership of their training.

Kicking Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. We got through about 4 and half stations of kicking on the powerlines and paddles. I made sure to control myself on the axe kicks again, and I'm not having as much trouble with the muscles pulling. Been spending time breaking down the crescent kicks and hook kicks, too.

Strength Training

Warm-ups: 5 broad jumps, 5 box jumps, 5 medicine ball throws, 5 medicine ball slams.
Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 265x1, 300x3, 300x3, 300x3.

Deadlifts: 135x5, 205x3, 225x1, 275x1, 295x5.

With the kids going back to school, my schedule has really gone to the pot, and I've not been able to consistently train three days a week like I want to. So I'm plodding along with the squats, trying to maintain some level of strength right now.

8/26/2019

MA Training

TKD Black Belt Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Do-kangs 1-4, three-steps 1-4, and we started on Ho Sin Sul. Brief stretch after class; my hip flexor area kept cramping up on me.
