Training Log: Entry 897

Heavybag, 2 minute rounds, 30 second rest
6 rounds 16oz gloves
3 rounds 8oz gloves

Notes: 30 second rounds are doing a lot better on taxing my conditioning.  Wore my gel-wraps to help with the pain in my hands. 

Ran for a little more than a half mile afterwards, just to keep in running shape.

Training Log: Entry 896

SSB squats of 365

of 245

Notes: Had more in me, but going with my strategy of staying low on volume for my PR.  The SSB is pushed back pretty far, but I'm beyond caring.  Low bar squat rules anyway.

Bench of 285

of 185

Notes: Lowered the pins, so the ROM is a little futher.  Touch and go on the last rep, but I'm ok with that.  I need to warm-up better.

Training Log: Entry 895

Heavybag: 2 minute rounds
6 w/16oz gloves
3 w/8oz gloves

Notes: Technique is a mess, but my conditioning is great as a result of the weight loss.  I actually hung up the gloves due to my hands stinging rather than being tired.  I should get some decent bag gloves.

Training Log: Entry 894

Bodyweight: 190.5

Goddamn this has got to stop.  I'm doubling my protein for my morning meal, and will have to make a conscious effort to eat more.  I've been cheating a ton on the diet, and I'm still losing weight too quickly.  I wasn't expecting to hit this weight until November.


SSB squats of 360


Notes: As my bodyweight drops, my mobility improves.  Very easy to hit depth now.  My current programming is working great as well.  Weight felt light.

DB rows of 130

off floor

Strict press of 155

of 95

Notes: Training the main sets as touch and go for the majority of the reps, while my work capacity sets have a pause.

Took some pics of me at 190 with a pump post workout.  May upload them sometime.  What's remarkable is my trap development despite no direct trap work.

Training Log: Entry 893

SSB squat of 355

of 245

Notes: Greatest set ever.  I'm stacking the bar a bit lower on my back, and it allows me a much better arch and easier depth.  It dawned on me that double bodyweight has moved from 400 to about 380 now, so it explains why the weight feels so heavy.

Bench of 280

of 185

Notes: Need to drop the pins a level and put on the padding.  I'm hiting pins before chest pretty often unless I really crank my arch.  The ROM hasn't changed, it's just jarring on my joints.

Training Log: Entry 892

Bodyweight: 192.5

Notes: I'm being too strict with my diet.  A 2.5lb drop in a week is not acceptable.  I'm going to eat more this week, and expect to maintain or possibly gain at the next weigh in.

Training Log: Entry 891

SSB squats of 360

Notes: Had my belt too tight on the first set.  After that, everything was awesome. 

DB rows of 125

from floor

Strict press

Notes: Gonna try a reset with higher reps and see where that takes me.

Got a physical today.  Will get the results of my blood work in a week.  BP was 127/67, and heart rate was 58, lowests I've EVER had it, to include when I was in high school, weighed 150lbs, ran 8-16 miles a day, wrestled, and never ate fast food.  That's pretty awesome.

Training Log: Entry 890

Weighed in at 195 this morning.  Met my goal.

PFT today
Waist: 33.5-20 points
1 minute push-ups: 67-10 points
1 minute of sit-ups: 57-9.5 points
1.5 mile run: 12:25-49.2 points

Total score: 88.7

Notes: 10 seconds shy of a 90.  Run fell apart, next time I need to train the run in a fatigued state and on a track.  Still a good showing.

Training Log: Entry 889

SSB squats of 355

Notes: Back feels strong, but took it easy just to be cautious.  Addressing the back rounding in the hole.

Bench of 280

of 135

Notes: Improving my arch so that I can still touch at the lower bodyweight.  Still feel great, no signs of slowing down.  Really excited about the 30 reps at 135.

Training Log: Entry 888

SSB squats of 350

Notes: Tweaked my back going too low.  Need to work on flexibility, but also might bring the box back for the sake of touch and go depth checking.  Aside from injury, squats felt incredibly light, and my track record demonstrates injury as a result of light weights rather than heavy.  It's 2 days later, and my back feels great.

Chins of 50


Notes: Cut out the bench because of my back. Will hit it next workout.

1.5 mile


Notes: Peaking, but at least it's a decent time.  Will test push-ups and sit-ups at a later date.

SSB squats of 355

Notes: Down another notch on the weight belt.   Didn't realize it on the first set, so things were rough.

DB rows of 115

off floor

Notes: Going to superset my pulling with my squats because I'm tired of my workouts taking forever.

Seated fat bar shoulder press off pins (14) of 95

Notes: Going to give this a go and see where it takes me.

Bodyweight: 196.2

1.2lbs away from my goal.
