Training Logs: 10/27-10/31 Get Spooky Yall!

10/27/2011 - Explosion Day
Trap Bar Jump Shrugs
10 x 3 x 115lbs
1 Arm KB Snatch
5 x 5 x 35lbs

* I actually liked the trap bar jump shrugs...I have been seeing quite a few articles of late discussing the value of weightlifting movements (cleans, snatches) for improving explosiveness...I don't like the wrist & shoulder stress for my kids so these will be a good substitute. The snatch felt good - need to go heavier next time.

10/29/11 - ME Lower Body
Leg Press
15 x 255
12 x 345
5 x 435
3 x 525
2 x 615
1 x 705, 795, 840, 885
3 x 1 x 795 (90%)
5 x 615

* My goal was to use a quad dominant exercise and leg press fit the bill nice...felt great to strain under a big weight while still working on deep breathing and packing the neck. It still works even in a max stability environment. If Poliquin is ok with some leg pressing once in awhile so am the rotation it goes!

10/30/11 - Recovery Day
Pipe Rolling & Bands
Treadmill x 1 Mile x 3-5% grade (slightly better time this week)
TRX Bus Drivers 3 x 5 each
Hanging Leg Raise 3 x 10

* The treadmill didn't suck quite as bad today...have to man up and start doing more difficult inchworm variations - HLR are too easy....

10/31/11 ME Upper Body
Seated Military Press
10 x Bar
5 x 75
3 x 95
2 x 115
1 x 135, 150, 165, 175, 185, 190
3 x 1 x 180 (90%)
1 Arm DB Row
3 x 10 x 85
Dips & 1/2 Chins
3 x 5 each

* I have not done seated military press in a long time but it felt good...goal 225lbs...Dips felt good but chins were heavy...not sure why...

During the month of November, Fury Performance & Personal Training will begin instituting a membership system. This new system will accomplish two important objectives. First, it will allow FPT&PT to continually improve upon its core mission of providing elite semi-private training and personal training to its membership. Second, it will allow FPT&PT to continually improve and expand its service options to its membership. Please check in with Coach Green on your next visit to FPT&PT to get this process started.  

I happy to announce that I am now part of the Prograde Nutrition team!

5 x 225
SFMA MSE, Stick, Band Stretch

* Hit a more recent training PR here with almost no sleep due to apnea...excited to see what I can do when rested. Altime PR is 455 - that's gotta go soon. Doing a good cooldown also kept me from getting stiff the next day - even better.

10/24/11 - Recovery

Big Ball Pot Stirs 3 x 5 each way

Training Log: 10/17/11 - Goblet Squatting

Goblet Squats
5 x 35, 45, 5 x 5 x 60

* I went real conservative here to protect my newly adjusted back...I also work some thicker sole shoes to protect again pronation (flat feet-itis!) and I felt pretty good. Probably to squat and dead in new balance or brooks shoes from now on to protect my knees/hip. Although I love the Free's and Minimus', combining the half marathon, them, and getting weak has led me to be more injured than ever! Sometimes it takes awhile to figure things out I guess.

3 x 115
2 x 125

*Decided to go heavier on both lifts....real sticky on everything except cleans...tweaked my SI joint on R side also so going to spend more time on technique and turning this day into an Explosion day...can't affored to tweak that SI again. Took two days off and had to go lighter on my plan squat day as a precaution. Bummer...

Training Log: 9/28/11 - Quick hitting Lower Body and some other junk

Lower Body

Goblet Squats (DB Military Press)
2 Warm Ups - 5 x 35, 45
5 x 10 x 85 (5 x 10 x 50)

* The first few of the goblet squats felt like crap due to my Monday sumo workout but I was locked in for the last few sets. Sets 3-5 on the press burned like bloody hell - sucked way worse than I anticipated.

Another pre-wedding LB stinker featuring goblet squats...imagine that!
Goblet Squats
10x 35, 45, 3 x 10 x 60

*In all seriousness, deep goblets are probably the easiest way to get a quick lower body workout in that hits all the bases...the key is DEEP though.

The "All Kinds of Scribbling" UB workout...
Military Press
10 x Bar
5 x 65,85, 115, 135
3 x 145, 155, 165, 175 (Pull Ups x 2 )
2 x 185
1 x 195

Plate Front Raise 5 x 10 x 25lbs
Neutral Chins 5 x 3
Push Ups 5 x 10

*I think this we two different days but were scribbled on the same page so I included both. Apparently, I just randomly decided to start supersetting pullups in section one. 195lbs on strict military press ain't too shabby though.  Section 2 was all supersetted together. I have to get better at my notations.  I also have no idea when these occurred.

Training Log: 9/27/11 - Not quite the Tour de France yet

Bike Intervals x Level 7 x 30 Minutes
TRX Vertical Pallof Press 3 x 5 each
TRX Fallouts x 3 x 10

*Similar to the stepper last week...level 7 wasn't too bad. Core is also getting stronger.

A LB workout hardly worth the time it took to write...
Trap Deadlift
5 x 135, 155, 175, 195, 215
225 x 5 x 3

*this must have been wedding time...haha

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Sumo Deadlifts (supersetted TRX Level 2 Row x 5)
10 - 1 - 10 ladder...95lbs - 185lbs - 105lbs...10 lb jumps starting at 185 x 2 on way down

* I did a warm up...GO ME!!! Really helped my back from flaring up...SCORE! A little bit of knee pain through - something is off in my technique I think...

Late Summer UB Day...
1 Arm KB Press
5 x 35, 45, 60 x 5
DB Bentover Row 5 x 5 x 45 (supersetted MB Push Ups x 5)
DB Curl & Press 5 x 5 x 35

Training Log: 9/23/11 - I hate Snatches in all forms...

Olympic Lifting Day
Power Clean - Split Jerk
5 x 4 x 135 (1/2 reps split each way)

Hang Snatch + Snatch Press
5 x 3 +3 x 95 (3 press on 3rd snatch)

*As the title says - I absolutely can't get into snatches. I just never seem to feel fluid on them. Split jerks with a left leg lead are also pretty tough too - next time I am going to work all left leg to work out the imbalance I have on that leg.

Older LB workout from the late summer...
Goblet Squats
10 x 35,45,60, 80, 90
5x 110,120,130

DB Sumo DL (supersetted 5x Push Up)
10 - 1 - 10 ladder...40bs -  85lbs - 40 lbs...5 lb jumps

1 Arm Cable Press (supesetted chin ups x 2)
5 x 5x
1 Arm Cable Row/1 Arm DB Press (supersetted chin ups x 1)

Training Log: Sept 12th, 2011

Having just purchased a house, gotten married, and gone on an awesome honeymoon, I realized the other day that I have let my blog to hell over the past few months! After watching several great presentations at a conference recently, I got all fired up and resolved to get this puppy going again.

The last thing I was regularly blogging on was my daily training so I decided to start back up with thats. The next few weeks of training post will feature my daily workout as well as what I have been doing over the past few months in my blogger doldrums.

Here goes...

Monday Sept. 12th
Goblet Squats (supersetted 2x chin ups of various grips)
10 - 1 - 10 ladder...25lbs - 120lbs - 40 lbs...10 lb jumps
I jumped from 85 to 100 near the top before I came back down. I weighed in at a glorious 270lbs so 40 chin ups felt alot better than I expected but reminded me of how many I could probably have done at 250lbs. FATTIE!!!

An old ME LB workout from 6-8 weeks ago...
Trap Deadlift
5x 155, 175, 195, 215, 225, 250, 275, 295, 315

* I remember this wasn't so bad at the time during the crazy summer period. I think if I can hit a 405x5, the 500+ DL goal is very attainable in a short time.
