Jeff_D's Training Log
Increased strength and mass here I come:
Did 2 weeks of squat only incorporating WOD's too.
Now I am going to a strength regime only. I'm in the 3rd week now and will begin to push the envelope now as I will be going harder than ever before and lift more than I ever have before. I don't know if I can keep up with the programs pace but will tinker with it if I run into issues. I'm a bit nervous...
5x5 squat 95,120,140,165,185(3525lbs)
knees to elbows 10,7,8
vertical leap test=23" up from 18" 11/06
5x5 press =70,80,95,110
4x5 DL =165,195,230,265
SQUATS- felt heavy on 5th rep of last two sets. Getting strange pin point pain in inner left knee at joint. Maybe knees are extending to far over toes? I can recreate pain with air squats when I push knees out too far. I'll try not pushing knees out so much and concentrate on keeping knees from extending over toes too much.
PRESS-felt fine- no issues
DL- got heavy on last set, switched to alternate grip for last 4 reps. feeling same pain in left knee during dl too, less apparent though.
Stretched the hamstrings afterwards. My lower back still wants to round a little at the bottom of the squat.
Worked on snatch, snatch catch, overhead squat, front squat and Sott's press form.
I created a .xls template for PM Mass regime. If you'd like a copy, send me a pm and the email address you'd like it sent to.
**************DAY 1 OF PM MASS PROGRAM*************
warm up= 1k row and shoulder work with band.
FRONT SQUAT- Prescribed as 60% of clean. My clean is weak, 155. so that means I'm only supposed to front squat 95 lbs. That felt like a warm-up set, so I increased percentage to 70% which put me at 105 lbs.
STANDING PRESS-Prescribed as 60% of press. My 1RM press is 125, so that put me at 75 lbs. That felt light to but I went ahead and used that weight for all 6x6. Should I be struggling in the last set of the 6x6. I know I'm new to lifting but shouldn't I be lifting heavier if I wanna grow??
WEIGHTED CHINS-Prescribed as 60% of my 1RM weighted pull-up. My 1RM is 55, so that put me at 33 lbs. I can barely do 3, let alone 6x6. Decreased by 1/2 to 15 lbs and was able to kip the last set and finish. That percentage didn't seem to translate well to the chins.
ABS/BACK- Did hanging leg raises 12,12,12,9 and good mornings with 45lb plate 15,15,15,15. I need a GHD...
SAT/SUN OFF DAYS
SAT-Did some snatch work and overhead squat stuff.
SUN-Took kid to park and did some pull-ups, single leg squats, dips, box type jumps 38", general monkeying around...While at the park I discovered I can dunk a tennis ball again, I haven't done that for atleast 10 years!! Vertical leap is about 26 inches and getting larger every month.
