Starting a journal as it seems like it will help me be better organized and easier to review my past training.
Currently I have competed in two oly meets and I plan to compete again but I don't have a definite date as of yet. I know that I need to get a lot stronger, and my training has to be able to work around my schedule which is abnormal. I work 5 40 pm to roughly 6 20 am every sun., mon., tues., and every other sat. Ot is assigned on top of this base schedule; it is not uncommon to work 5 days a week with split days off. I like the idea of KISS in my training, especially right now, so here we go!
general warmup-rowing, pushups, kipping pu, and air squats
45 95 135 155 175 185 for 5x5
Trouble focusing on 4th work set due to mirror. ( I forgot how much I dont like Globo Gyms)
95x3 115x3 135x3 155 for 6x3
these were decent not outstanding
Tac Strength style pullups ( false grip, neck to bar)
back ext. 2x15
I was short on time tonight, so I had to hit the globo gym down the street from me. It was a little strange as I hadn't trained anywhere but WS s&c for 6 months.
Training session at Wilson Spencer S&C
Jump Rope and assorted kettlebell stuff (light)
really tight and sore from previous training session
Burg warm up with pvc then Bar
Decent, 1st set at 50 was very nice
Snatch High Pulls
50x3 60x3 80x3x3
Last set was really good! The other sets I had problems holding my hips down consistently on 1 or 2 reps each set.
3 pow cleans, 3 high hang full cleans, 3 front squats, 3 push-jerks
Did this for 5 sets( 1 of the above being a set)
1st set at 40, then 4 sets at 42.5
Wow! This hurt my feelings!
Glute Ham Raise
Jonathon, welcome to the training logs. I like the looks of your training and will be following your training and progress. Looks good so far.
Snuck into the globo gym, at least they have a platform and bumpers, and a climbing rope, so its not all that bad. Tonights training was intended to be short and light as I am trying to mimic the Texas Method ( ala Rip In Prac. PRog.) I also want to take advantage of the am range schedule as opposed to my normal pm shift.
500m row on concept 2
45x5 95x3 115x3 135x3 165x3 175x3 175x3
these felt good and fairly light like they were supposed too!
Strict Press (weights were pow. cleaned up from ground on 1st rep)
45x5 65x5 95x5 115x5 115x4 1Fail pause 1
Wow! This was supposed to be a easy-to-medium gauranteed 5 reps!
I never press, but I thought I would suck a little less with all the overhead work in the olys. However, after being used to PP and Jerking, the strict pressing felt so foreign. I had to focus on not dipping and driving on almost every rep.
These were thrown in as an afterthought purely for fun.
Thanks! Feel free to throw out any criticism or advice, I wanna hear it!
Train Hard! Have Fun!
Good to see you starting a log here! Congrats on the recent PRs.
You doing any meets in the coming months?
Another Globo Gym session (I will henceforth call it the WC)
Warm up -500 m row
Back Squat- work up to heavy set of 5
Barx5x2 95x5 135x5 155x5 175x5 195x5
195x5 is a 5 rep pr
Push Press-work up to a heavy 1,2,3
45x5 65x5 95x3 135x3 155x3 175x2 185x1 &1*
(*Didn't feel like I locked it out satisfactorily, and I was pretty unstable, had to take some stutter steps etc...)
barx3(high hang) 40x1+1 HHx2 sets 50x1+ohs+1HH+ohsx2 sets 50x2+2ohs
I am trying to explore the power versions a little more to help me get faster more explosive in my pull, and they are fun!
3 rounds for time
2 12 ft. rope climbs no feet
First week of the Texas Method prog., and I have identified some weaknesses I need to work on. Its only been a week but I think this will be a good template for me for strength and Gpp/weakness work.
I normally have to work on tues night, but I had tonight off. Training was at WS S&C. Winter is officially here, the snowfall is 5 " for now.
warmup-jump rope, burg pvc and light power snatches
27.5x3(power) 40x1p2deck 50x2 57.5x1x1f 57.5x1fx1 57.5x2 61x2(ugly2nd rep) 61x2 (pretty decent)
1st time doing full snatches since meet and form was a little iffy, off the floor was good but timing was the problem.
Back Squat (kilos)x
barx5 40x5 60x3 70x2 80x2 87.5x5x4
Theses were really good tonight!
40x5 45x5 50x2 60x2 77.5x1x1f 77.5x1 65x3x3
I wanted to increase 5 #s from last weeks 6x3, not in the tank tonight!
Wasnt going to happen, so I backed down to 65x3x3. I was pissed about it but, "They can't all be gems."
Wilson Spencer S&C
Warmup-5 min. of jump rope
High Hang power clean
Clean & Jerk
40x3 50x3 60x2 65x2 70x1 75x1x2
Really good tonight!
40x3 60x3 70x3 75x3x3
felt really solid and easy like they were supposed too!
barx5 65x5(#'s) 40x5 52.5x5x2
really nice! this is what I was supposed to do last week but couldnt nail the 5th rep on the 2nd set
Its going to be important to really be focused when I have to train at the WC
21-15-9 rounds for time
Wow! This hurt! But I was glad I did it when all was said and done!
The cleans felt really good and easy tonight, no rust at all. Good work tonight!
Wilson Spencer S&C
warmup- 5min jump rope, pvc burgener, pvc snatch balance
27.5x3 (1+2 HH) 40x2 50x2 60x2 70x2 75x2
Had good snap today, the 75 felt very crisp and easy
barx5 40x5 60x5 70x5 80x5 85x2 92.5x5
The heavy set of 5 felt easy! After I racked it I immediately thought I should have done 95, but hindsight is 20/20
barx5 40x5 50x3 60x3 67.5x2 70x1 80x1 82.5x1(F) 82.5x1
The missed rep with 82.5 was a lack of focus, I took a pause, got back under it and nailed it clean. I originally planned to double it but I held off.
75#sx8 40(kilos)x8 45x8 45x6(toes on two bumpers)
Pretty good reps, I am still figuring these out
10 double unders
50 single unders
10 double unders
Skill on DU's held me back and even in just 10 rep increments burpees suck!

I wanted 5x5 but something just didnt feel right, so I went with my gut and cut short at 3x5, next time.
5xBW 2x8 25# plate across chest
Experimented with training am and pm today due to busy schedule with work and holiday stuff. In hindsight I dont know how good of an idea it is to train after staying up all night, I will have to experiment with it some more.
I dont know what happened with the squatting, something just didn't feel right (besides the stupid mirror!)
