8/30/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 235x1, 260x1, 310x5, 310x5, 310x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 100x2, 120x1, 146x5, 146x5, 146x5.

With school starting, and football practices, homework, and a baseball session once a week for my youngest, I've decided to move to a four day schedule at the gym, cutting the time spent in the gym for each session. My press weight was supposed to be 148, but I just screwed it up.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Black Belt Class. Did a couple of Do-Kangs, then watched forms, and did Choong Jang twice. Then went right into Hoo Sin Sul, trying to do some free-flowing drills. I ended up being the uke more than anything. Really spent time on defending straight punches, crosses, and haymakers.

8/31/2021

Strength Training

Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 165x1, 210x5, 210x6, 210x5.
Power Cleans: 95x3 & Press x3, 105x3 & Press x3, 115x3 & Press x3, 120x3 & Press x3.
Deadlifts: 135x5, 225x3, 275x2, 305x5.

Accidentally got an extra rep on set of bench. Lots of work on the power clean, focusing on the catch. It was getting better. Last set of deadlift definitely felt like I could do more, but am really taking it gradually with my back recovering.

9/1/2021

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. T-Shirt Class. I did some work on some one-steps that we have that have a lot of spinning movements in them, to get some work on that stuff. After that, we sparred. For not having sparred in a while, I did ok. I did get kicked in the head, though, which was not flattering of fun.

9/2/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 205x3, 235x1, 260x1, 312.5x5, 312.5x5, 312.5x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 100x2, 120x1, 148x5, 148x5, 148x5.

Dropping the increases on squat to 2.5 lbs, to see if I can keep eking out some gains.

9/3/2021

Strength Training

Power Cleans: 95x3, 105x3, 115x3, 120x3, 120x3, 120x3, 120x3, 120x3.
Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 165x1, 215x5, 215x5, 215x5.

I didn't do any overhead work with the cleans, because I didn't want to detract from the bench press. Bench press still continues to go well.

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 275x1, 315x5, 315x5, 315x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 100x3, 120x2, 150x5, 150x5, 150x5.

Labor Day workout! Great day on the squats, and the 150 might be a PR on the press. Especially at sets of 5.

9/8/2021

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. T-Shirt Class. Did some work on the speed bag, followed by some forms work. I went through Gae Baek a couple of times, Se Jong a few times, Poe Eun once, and Choong Jang. I followed that up with some more of the spin crescent kick work from some of the one-steps. Sparred a few rounds with some kids, and also a good round with a 2nd degree.

9/9/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 275x1, 317.5x5, 317.5x5, 317.5x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 115x3, 135x1, 152x5, 152x5, 152x5.

Squats are getting heavy. But doing them 2 days a week is working well.

9/13/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 275x1, 320x5, 320x5, 320x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 115x2, 135x1, 154x5, 154x5, 154x5.

Squat sets were tough, but felt really good. I'm loving seeing those numbers climb up. Press continues to improve, as well, which I'm surprised to see.

9/14/2021

Strength Training

Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 180x1, 222.5x5, 222.5x5, 222.5x5.
Deadlifts: 135x5, 225x3, 275x1, 315x5.

I really felt the work sets in my bad shoulder, and am noticing it more now as the weight gets heavier. I'll monitor my shoulder to see if the pain persists after the workout at all, and adjust accordingly. I think it's mainly the scar tissue that hurts. If I don't have any lingering pain after the workouts, I'll keep trying to work through it.

My back continues to have soreness, and some days are better than others. I was able to pull the deadlifts without problems, but my back did complain about it a little.

9/15/2021

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. T-Shirt Class. I did all of my black belt forms; Kwang Gae, Poe Eun, Gae Baek, Se Jong, Yoo Sin, and Choon Jang. Some stretching, and some work on some of the spinning one-steps, and then a bit of drilling with new hogu.

9/16/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 275x1, 322.5x5, 322.5x5, 322.5x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 115x2, 135x1, 156x5, 156x5, 156x4, 156x1.

Squats are getting heavy, and press is getting hard. I'm focusing on getting to 15 total reps with the press now, in as few sets as possible.

9/17/2021

Strength Training

Bench Press: 45x5, 115x5, 135x3, 185x1, 225x5, 225x5, 225x5.
Power Clean & Jerk: 95x2, 105x2, 115x2, 130x2, 130x2, 130x2, 130x2, 130x2.
Neutral-grip Chins: 3, 2.

One of the guys at the gym let me borrow his wrist straps for bench press. The support they offered was noticeable, so I've ordered a pair for myself. I haven't gotten any knee wraps yet, but I'm thinking that time is approaching, too.

After reading up on some programming ideas for the clean and jerk, I dropped the sets to two per set. I noticed previously that fatigue really started to set in doing sets of 3. I'm really enjoying doing the "quick lifts" in training, and finishing with the jerk is adding some more overhead work during the week.

Thanks, Danielle! It's feeling really good. I'm pretty sure I'm hitting PRs for 3x5 on the squats.

9/20/2021

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 275x1, 325x5, 325x5, 325x5.
Press: 45x5, 85x5, 115x2, 135x1, 158x3, 158x4, 158x4, 158x4.

Press is getting hard to hit sets of 5 now. The focus now is on getting 15 total reps. Squats are getting heavy, and when I can, I have someone I trust in the gym watch me, talk me through the sets, and confirm I'm hitting depth.
