Congrats on getting this post to 500 pages!!

I must say it is inspiring to see all your training logs and motivates me to work harder to get into a regular routine myself.

I have recently managed to find the time twice a week (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) to get into the Gym after work for an hour before having to pick up my daughter from Nursery. Although I'm not really doing a lot of gym work, just a few weights and then the rest is martial art training.

Yesterdays session:

-Warm up
-Lat pull downs 50kg x 10 Chest press 50kg x 10 Tricep dips x 5
-free style bag work before working on particular kicks (round kick and turn back kick)
-Squat side kicks
-Karate Kata - Tekki Sandan and Ji'in
-Lat pull downs 50kg x 10 Chest press 50kg x 10 Tricep dips x 5
-More freestyle bag work.
-Kobudo bo staff basics
-Kobudo kata - Bo kihon ichi, Kobou Nunchaku

Thank you, ashworth! I always like seeing other people posting in here; that's what it was initially started for...for all of us to share our training with each other. I hope to see more of that happening with this thread. It was never my intent to be only focused on my training.

Strength Training

Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 155x3, 205x1, 235x5, 235x5, 235x5.
Power Clean & Jerk: 115x2, 130x2, 145x2, 145x2, 145x2, 145x2, 145x2.
Lat Pull-downs: 150x10, 150x10, 150x10.
Stretch: quads, hamstrings, and glutes.

Bench went well; some issues getting warm, up overall, went well. I'm pleased with where my performance has gone since adding the bench press back in. Clean & jerk was rough today. Troubles with the racks and smooths splits. Jerks were good. Due to time constraints, I had to drop the push presses today. I'll try to get them back in next week, or may start adding in some more pressing work.

Went into the gym for a little TKD work. Warmed up with 10 minutes on the bike with a little Clive Cussler (RIP), then went into the dojang for some forms and one-steps. Did white belt, both orange belt and both green belt forms, and their corresponding one-steps. Finished with some stretching on the stretching machine. Probably about 30 minutes total.

Rough session. Thought squats were going to fold me in half, and press was just a grind.

Strength Training

Power Clean: 135x3, 150x3.
Deadlifts: 185x5, 245x3, 305x1, 345x5.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 155x3, 205x1, 237.5x5, 237.5x5, 237.5x5.
Pin Press: 45x3, 95x3, 115x3, 135x3, 135x3, 135x3.
Lat Pull-downs: 155x10, 155x10, 155x10.
Stretch: hams, quads, glutes.

Power cleaned a few sets to warm up deadlift. Deadlift was heavy, but I think the bar speed was pretty decent throughout the set. Bench felt a little sloppy. I tried pin presses for the first time, starting at eyebrow level. As I warmed up, I tried some heavier weights, but they would not budge, so stayed at 135. From what I've read, pin press is supposed to be heavier than the regular press, but I may just need some more reps to get used to it.

Strength Training (yeah, on Thanksgiving Day!)

Squats: 45x5x2, 165x5, 225x3, 295x1, 335x5, 315x5, 315x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 115x3, 145x1, 166x5, 166x5, 166x5 (and a half).
Lat Pull-downs: 157.5x10, 157.5x10, 157.5x10.

That first squat set was a killer, and I didn't think there was any way I could pull off two more sets, so I've moved to back-off sets. On the last set of press, rep 4 stalled at the halfway point, so I brought it back down, and was able to set and drive up the last two reps. Back was still recovering, so I didn't do the second heavy deadlifts for the week.

Strength Training

Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 155x3, 205x1, 240x5, 240x5, 240x5.
Power Clean & Jerk: 115x2, 130x2, 147.5x2, 147.5x2, 147.5x2, 147.5x2, 147.5x2.
Lat Pull-downs: 160x8, 160x8, 160x8, 160x8.

Bench was a little rough, but finished strong. C&J were a challenge to rack, but got better towards the end of the sets. Moved pull-downs to 4x8. It feels good to not miss workouts due to the holiday.

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 165x5, 225x3, 295x1, 337.5x5, 315x5, 315x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 115x3, 145x1, 167.5x5, 167.5x5, 167.5x4, 167.5x1.

Lat Pull-downs: 162.5x8, 162.5x8, 162.5x8, 162.5x8.
Stretch: hams, quads, glutes.

Did a lot of travelling this weekend, taking one long road trip out to Colorado for a football camp, and a shorter trip on Sunday to see my granddaughter. Due to all the travel, my diet suffered considerably on Friday and Saturday, and I think my performance today in the gym reflected that. That first set of squat was a killer, and the two backoff sets were tough. I was cruising along on press, and on the last set, rep 4 was a grinder, and I got stuck on the way up for 5. Had to rack it, rest a minute, and then get the last rep.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Black Belt Class. Did Do-Kangs 1 & 2, doing 2 three times, getting some review in for one of the younger black belts. Finished the night with 3-steps practice.
