The Meniere's subsided some today, and I didn't feel the effects on squat as much. Press, my nemesis. The first set to 5 was a struggle, and then after that, it was all a struggle. Right before the last set, I realized that I had tightened my belt after squatting to hole I added for pressing....tightened the belt, and got a set of 3. Deadlifts are still feeling good, and my back isn't complaining about them.

8/11/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 225x1, 255x5, 255x5, 255x5.
Press: (PC)45x5, (PC)85x5, (PC)100x3, (PC)120x1, 144x3, 144x3, 144x2, 144x2, 144x2, 144x3.
Power Clean & Jerk: 125x3, 125x3, 125x3.
Neutral-grip Chins: 2, 2, 2, 2.

Light squat day. I really appreciate it more and more, especially with the Meniere's giving me fits. I've decided to give the power clean another go (since I've given bench press a second chance, too). Also, since I'm kind of disappointed with how my press is going, I've decided to try to increase my overhead work, so I'm going to press everything I can, until I can't, and then move to jerk pressing.

Today, due to lack of room on the racks (I had both of my boys at the gym with me), I power cleaned the first rep of each press warm-up. I did not clean the work sets. For the power cleans, I'm going to press and jerk all the weight that I can. Since the weight isn't high yet, and since I did the heavy pressing already, I jerked each clean rep. As I progress, I'm going to try to get more sets in (up to 5 is the plan), and I may progress from clean and press, to clean and push press, then to clean and jerk, and to just cleans once the weight gets up there.

I am thinking of using the power clean to warm up my deadlift, as well.

MA Training

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. T-Shirt Class: I did a little bit of work in this class, but spent most of the time teaching. It was a small class, just a couple of black belt kids. I had them doing side-stepping techniques on the bags, and after about 20 minutes of reps doing that, I had them line up to spar each other, and work to apply the side-stepping footwork and counters. I think the two did really well at doing so, and they definitely spent less time backing up, and more time circling and working angles.

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 235x1, 260x1, 300x5, 300x5, 300x5.
Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 155x1, 190x5, 190x5, 190x5.
Power Cleans: 95x3 & Press x3, 115x3 & Press, 135x3 & Push Press x3.
Deadlifts: 225x3, 255x2, 275x1, 305x5.
Neutral-grip Chins: 2, 2, 2, 2.

Finally, with consistent training, getting to that 300 lb. barrier. Bench press is continuing to feel good, so I will continue with keeping it in the program. I used the power cleans to warm up for the deadlift, and after each clean, pressed/push pressed it overhead. Deadlift is feeling ok so far, too. I just wish I could have kept it farther ahead of my squat numbers.

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 235x1, 260x1, 305x5, 305x5, 305x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 100x3, 120x1, 146x4, 146x4, 146x4, 146x4.
Power Cleans: 135x3
Deadlifts: 205x3, 225x3, 255x2, 275x1, 310x5.
Neutral-grip Chins: 2, 2, 2.

Squats are getting heavy, but I completed the sets, although the bar felt like it wanted to roll around on my back. Press went surprisingly well, getting sets of 4. I did one set of power cleans to start warming up the deadlifts, went forward from there. My back was pretty sore after this session. Might have been from the press.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Black Belt Class. Do-Kangs 1 and 2, twice each, then worked on three-steps quite a bit. Finished working with block/pass/pin drills.

8/18/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 225x1, 255x5, 255x5, 255x5.
Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 155x1, 195x5, 195x5, 195x5.
Power Cleans: 95x3 & Press x3, 115x3 & Press x3, 125x3 & Press x3, 125x3 & Press x3, 125x3 & Push Press x3, 125x3 & Push Press x3, 125x3 & Push Press x3.

I changed up my power cleans. Instead of the standard catch position, I changed to a split clean. I really liked it, after I got used to it. Now, I just need to work on the catch itself, because I'm really beating the crap out of myself catch the rack.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. T-Shirt Class. I did Choong Jang 3 times, and Se Jong twice, for review. A little bit of technique work, and some stretching.

Firearms Training: 8:00 - 11:30 am. Got some range in today. Pistol first, and we worked on drawing and firing with a threat moving towards us from 21 feet. Great drill. After that, we worked on pistol on stationary and moving targets (side to side), and then the same drill with pistol/transition to rifle. Good stuff.

8/20/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 235x1, 260x1, 310x1, 235x5, 235x1.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 100x3, 120x1, 135x5, 135x5, 135x5.
Neutral-grip Chins: 2, 2, 2, 2.
Power Cleans: technique work; jump, jump and catch, and working on the split.

My back was in a lot of pain today. I couldn't do my work sets for squats, as the pain was acute when I was in the bottom position. I also backed off weight on press to avoid too much layback, and avoided deadlifts altogether. I hate these days.

Got through squats, but deadlifts was another story.

Light day, and my back needed the break. Short on time, due to scheduling conflicts.
