Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 165x5, 225x3, 295x1, 340x5, 340x5, 340x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 90x5, 125x3, 165x1, 184x1, 184x1, 184x1, 184x1, 184x1, 184x1, 184x1.
Neutral-grip Chins: 2, 2, 2, 2, 2.
Stretch: hams, quads, glutes, shoulders.

The last set of squats is a grinder, but I'm finishing. Still need to find a little more consistency in hitting depth. Presses were hard. There were a few of the reps where I got it out of the groove, throwing the bar forward as I thrust my hips forward. This caused me to end up with some half reps before getting a good one in. I also had one die on my 3/4 the way up, which was disheartening. But things getting tougher means I'm getting stronger.

Strength Training

Snatch: 100x2, 110x2, 115x1, 122.5x2, 122.5x2, 122.5x2, 122.5x2, 122.5x2.
Clean & Jerk: 130x1, 140x1, 150x2, 150x2, 150x2, 150x2, 150x2.

I missed a few of the snatches; not sure what I was doing wrong, but I'd get them up about chest level and it would die. It happened a few times. C&J went much better.

4/12/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 170x5, 240x3, 305x1, 342.5x5, 342.5x5, 342.5x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 105x3, 140x1, 163x5, 163x5, 163x5, 163x5, 163x5.

Another tough squat session, but I made the best of it. Dropping to 2.5 lb increases now.

4/15/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 170x5, 240x3, 305x1, 345x5, 345x5, 345x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 95x5, 135x3, 165x1, 186x1, 186x1, 186x1, 135x5, 135x5.

So the day before, I had some issues. My Meniere's flared up, and I ended up in bed for a portion of the day, suffering from dizziness, and I didn't eat much. I felt better the next day, so gave the gym a go. At first, I thought I'd be somewhat conservative, and just see how it felt doing the warmups. Turned out, they felt good, so I went to my regularly scheduled work sets for squats, and got all three sets. I started focusing on really shoving my but back and keeping my knees from sliding forward, and it seemed to really help, especially in hitting depth.

Press was another matter. I don't know if it was from the day before, but after set 3, nothing went up. I tried but failed several times. I backed it off and did a few more sets to get volume, and that was it.

4/18/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 170x5, 240x5, 305x1, 347.5x5, 347.5x5, 347.5x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 105x3, 140x1, 164.5x5, 164.5x5, 164.5x5, 164.5x5, 164.5x5.

Squats were hard, but felt strong. Last few reps on each set are grinding more and more, but it feels so good to finish. Press 5x5 is climbing up and up.

4/21/2022

Range Training: 8:00 - 11:00 am. Pistol qualification at the range today. Hadn't shot in some time, and it unfortunately showed. I need to get some more practice in.

Strength Training

Deadlifts: 135x5, 225x5, 275x3, 315x1, 360x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 95x5, 135x3, 165x1, 175x1, 175x1, 177x1, 177x1, 177x1, 178x1, 178x1.

I tried to do 186 again for singles, but again, failed. I'm hoping it has more to do with the fact I had been sick for a few days and not able to eat well. Instead, I backed off the weight and still got singles in that felt heavy.

Deadlift was another matter entirely. Checking back in my log, I had done deadlift in about 2 weeks. I knew I needed to do it, so I went in planning to warm it up and see how it felt, and probably back off from my last work set of 360. My buddy talked me into loading 360, and I pulled it for 5, and pulled it pretty well, much to my surprise. Now, I just have to make sure to keep it prioritized through this baseball season schedule.

4/22/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 135x5, 225x3, 280x5, 280x5.
Pin Press: 45x5x2, 65x5, 95x5, 115x1, 135x1, 155x1, 175x1, 177x1, 180x1, 180x1, 180x1, 180x1, 180x1.

Did a light squat session today, just to try to keep things fresh. Tried pin press again, and may be trying to add it into the program more often.

4/25/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 175x5, 245x3, 315x1, 350x5, 350x5, 350x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 105x3, 140x1, 166x5, 166x5, 166x5, 166x5, 166x5.

Squat keeps going. Reps 4 and 5 of each set were difficult now, but it keeps grinding up, for now. Press sets were a struggle towards the end.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Pretty much played an instructor role tonight. Two of our younger black belts were the only students, and they reviewed some material.

4/27/2022

Strength Training

Deadlift: 135x5, 185x5, 255x3, 330x1, 365x5.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 155x3, 205x1, 225x5.

Coming back to very limited bench pressing, so I don't aggravate my shoulder any more.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. T-shirt Class. I spent about a half hour of this class wrestling with my oldest son...and he absolutely trashed me! And it was a good time! We worked on some stuff together, like clinching, and some positional stuff. It was a good time, we got some good cardio in, and we plan on doing some more of it.

4/28/2022

Women's PDS (Personal Defense Seminar): 6:00 - 8:00 pm. I had participated in a few of these before as an assistant, but this is the first time I ran one on my own. It turns out I could have used more time, but I made the most of the time I had. We had 6 girls participating, and the CI of my school assisted me. We did some striking on pads, and covered several variations of choke defenses, and also a defense from the guard position. It was a lot of fun, and I look forward to the opportunity to do more of them.

4/29/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 175x5, 245x3, 315x1, 352.5x4, 352.5x2.
Press: 45x5x2, 95x5, 135x3, 165x1, 177x1, 177x1, 178x1, 178x1, 179x1, 179x1, 180.

Failed on squats. On set 1, rep 4, everything seemed to go slack at the bottom, and I was really afraid that I wasn't going to get out of the hole. I was able to stand up with it, and racked it, afraid 5 wouldn't come out of the hole at all, and I expended a lot of energy getting 4 up. On set 2, my balance shifted forward onto my toes in the bottom of rep 3, and I had to put it in the pins. Kind of disheartening, but may be time to make a change.

5/2/2022

Strength Training

Squats: 45x5x2, 175x5, 245x3, 315x1, 352.5x5, 315x5, 315x5, 315x5.
Press: 45x5x2, 75x5, 105x3, 140x1, 167.5x5, 167.5x5, 167.5x5, 167.5x5, 167.5x5.
Lat Pull-downs: 140x10, 140x10, 140x10.

Changed up the squat approach. Work up to a heavy set of 5, and then back off about 10% for 2x5. I hit the target weight for the working sets I was supposed to hit the last squat session, which felt good.

TKD Class: 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Black Belt Class. I got in a little late, and started things off with Do-Kangs 3-5. Somewhere along in Do-Kang 4, I did something to my knee, and it wouldn't let me do any jumping after that. It hurt to even to stand on for a little while. After going through the black belt basics, we went into Ho Sin Sul. What we did I wasn't really enthused by.

5/3/2022

Strength Training

Deadlifts: 135x5, 185x5, 255x3, 330x1, 370x5.
Bench Press: 45x5x2, 115x5, 155x3, 205x1, 225x5.
Lying Triceps Extensions: 35x10, 45x10, 55x10.
Stretch: hams, quads, glutes.

New PR on deadlift. It was a strain, but I recorded the work set. Although it felt slow and grindy, the bar speed wasn't too terrible, and my back stayed set throughout the set. Decided to finish with some LTEs.
