So, consistency has not been my thing over the course of the past month or so. Lots of wrestling stuff going on, and I've been having some health issues that I am hoping we are closing in on figuring out. I've got an ear that has a lot of built up pressure in it, I'm losing hearing in it, and I get bouts of vertigo so bad that I throw up everything I've eaten in the day, and get walk, let alone drive a car. It's been narrowed down to Menear's disease, and I've got the results of an MRI pending, so fingers crossed.

But, I have had some decent days where I've been able to get in and train. I'm not gaining, but I'm almost maintaining.

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x3, 270x5, 270x5, 270x5.
Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 185x1, 207.5x5, 207.5x5, 207.5x5.

2/12/2020

Strength Training

Deadlifts: 135x5, 185x5, 205x3, 225x2, 250x1, 290x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 95x3, 115x5, 115x5, 115x5.

Worked on slamming my armpits shut to engage my lats more on the deads, which helps keep the bar tracking up my legs. Helps, but I need work at it. I probably backed off too much on the press; it felt pretty good.

2/19/2020

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x2, 275x5, 275x5, 275x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 95x3, 120x5, 120x5, 120x5.

TKD Class: 6:45 - 7:30 pm. Kicking class. We worked on some speed drills, kicking and then bursting the leg back up to kick again right away, and some switching with it. We also use some target pads to work on some target acquisition training.

2/24/2020

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 250x5, 250x5, 250x5.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 135x3, 185x1, 200x5, 200x5, 200x5.
Lat Pull-downs: 120x10, 120x10, 120x10, 120x10.
Stretch: front kick stretches only.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Black belt class. We spent the first half of the class doing Do-Kangs 1 and 2. We did at a broken count first, with instructors doing a count and the class following; did it again with everyone going on instructors' count; and last time was done at own count. Did that with both 1 and 2, and it burned my arms out good, and my knees didn't like it the next day. Those two Do-Kangs are all upper-body blocking/striking combinations, so they really do a number on the arms, especially doing them 6 times total. Second half of class was spent doing three-steps; did 6, each one at least twice before moving on to the next.

2/25/2020

Strength Training

Deadlifts: 135x5, 185x5, 205x3, 225x1, 250x1, 275x5, 275x2.
Lat Pull-downs: 125x10, 125x10, 125x10, 125x10.
Stretch: front kick and quads.

So, the deadlifts. Still the bane of my existence. Inevitably, on my work sets, the bar doesn't want to come up my shins, and the pull goes to hell in a handbasket. The last set of 2, I did without my belt on. The pull was a bit slower, but I was able to keep the bar on my shins. So, I don't know from here. Maybe no belt? Maybe I need to belt up for every set?

2/26/2020

MA Training

TKD Kicking Class: 6:45 - 7:30 pm. Did some jumping work, and worked on some jumping kicks, to start getting back into testing form. After I finally got warmed a little, I was able to get things working decently. I did Choong Jang once, slow pace, and then led some kicking drills with target pads. Worked on cutting angles and then throwing a front kick (front leg and back leg), cutting off the front leg and back leg, and then later following it up with a back leg round kick to the head. Some good drills that got the students moving. Finished with a stretch.

2/27/2020

Firearms Training: 4 hours at the range, shooting new backup weapons. Spent time getting familiar with the new gun, the feel of the smaller grip, and drawing from the backup position, and transition drills.

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 255x5, 255x5, 255x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 95x3, 125x5, 125x5, 125x5.
Lat Pull-downs: 130x10, 130x10, 130x10, 130x10.
Stretch: front kick and quads.

2/28/2020

Firearms Training: A run through qualification, and then spent some time practicing with the backup gun.

Strength Training

Deadlifts: 135x5, 185x5, 225x2, 250x1, 280x5, 280x1.
Barbell Rows: 140x8, 140x8, 140x8.
Stretch: Front kick stretch and quads/hip flexors.

Didn't wear a belt for the deadlift work sets, and I was able to pull closer to my body. I think the main issue is getting the lats strong enough to pull the weight back to me.

3/4/2020

MA Training

TKD Kicking Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. I did some really basic kicking on the heavy bag. I did front kicks, then round kicks, then side kicks, doing front leg and back leg versions, and then adding in side-stepping, stepping with the front leg and then with the back leg. This amounted to 150 kicks total. Then I did my jumping work and practiced flying side kicks, getting over obstacles. Also did knife hand strikes on the bag, building power for board breaks.

3/5/2020

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x2, 235x1, 275x5, 265x5, 265x5.

Lat Pull-downs: 145x10, 145x10, 145x10, 145x10.
Stretch: front kick and quads.

Somehow miss loaded my first squat set. Oh well. Nothing hurt. It did feel a bit heavy, though.

3/8/2020

Firearms Training: spent about an hour with my backup pistol, working on trigger pull, trigger reset, and not jumping the shot. Shot with lots of dummy rounds. Took the boys along with me, and they did some handgun shooting, too.

3/9/2020

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 235x1, 270x5, 270x5, 270x5.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 135x3, 185x1, 207.5x5, 207.5x5, 207.5x5.
Lat Pull-downs: 150x10, 150x10, 150x10, 150x10.
Stretch: front kicks and quads.

MA Training

TKD Black Belt Class: 6:50 - 7:30 pm. I was running late, due to priorities with the kiddos. I did Do-Kang 3 three times, twice at instructor count, and then on our own count. Three-steps, 1-6, at least twice each. Then spent time testing the kids on the three-steps.

3/10/2020

Strength Training

Deadlifts: 135x5, 185x5, 225x2, 250x1, 290x5, 2.
Lat Pull-downs: 155x8, 155x8, 155x8, 155x8.
Stretch: front kick and quads.

Put the belt back on for deadlifts. Still having trouble with the bar floating away from my shins on the pull. It's frustrating.

3/11/2020

MA Training

TKD Kicking Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Lots of front kicking. On the heavy bags, on the target pads, front legs, back legs, side stepping, timing/targeting drills, etc. Filled the class with front kicks. Towards the end we got into some combinations, following up with round kicks and a spin/reverse kick to finish. We also got some jumping work in, and a stretch.
