April 14, 2009

Early AM
Platoon PT
Army WU
10 rounds:
100 m sprint
100m walking lunges
100m jog
25 pushups
100m jog

I did 1 round of sprints and pulled my right quadriceps, freaking awesome. I should have taken the first round slow instead of trying to kick on the afterburners with the first sprint. Damn, tried to walk it off thinking it was a cramp but after sone walking and light stretching it wasn't going away. The major sent me home early so I could get some heat/ice on it. Been a bit bothersome all day long.


Noon Workout
BW - 195 (in full uniform)
1. Warmup
ECWU #1 modified for pulled right thigh

2. Strength
25 reps total today - 25 seconds rest between sets - heavy weight 4-5RM
close grip bench press - 45 x 8, 95 x 5, 145 x 3, 165 x 1, 165 x 9, 165 x 5, 165 x 3, 165 x 3, 165 x 3, 165 x 2
chinup - 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2
db push press subbed strict press - 45 x 8, 45 x 6, 45 x 4, 45 x 3, 45 x 4
front squat - 45 x 1 Ouch...subbing cable pullthroughs
cable pullthroughs - 80 x 12, 95 x 8, 95 x 8, 95 x 9

NG face pull - 30 x 12, 30 x 12, 35 x 12
back extensions - 15, 13, 17
(superset with full rest - 0:30)

side plank - 0:35L/R, 0:45L/R, 0:40L/R
vacuum hold - 0:30

Notes:
-WU - skipped a few movements as not to hurt my leg anymore
-FS - I thought I'd perhaps just do the bar for a bunch of reps to get some blood flow but that wasn't looking like a good idea.


Evening
Recovery Session
ice rolling, left arch and left calf
foot mobility drills ~25m's
basic joint mobility 10 reps each movement
PNF calf stretching - gastroc and soleus
calf static stretching
foam roller - upper back, lats

Thanks, I'd like to start incorporating some more MovNat and Parkour type stuff into my days off from lifting. I'm still plugging away at the Waterbury stuff right now it's not too hard on recovery and being only 3 whole body sessions a week I'm not getting too burnt out from doing PT 5 days a week too. I finish up the Waterbury stuff in 2 weeks and not sure how I should go from there.

School is going, lot of class lately, not bad I can train twice a day usually now with all my free time after classes. Fort Leonard Wood, MO has noooothing around here, unless you enjoy going to Walmart and sketchy trailer parks.

-OHS - These just felt bad, even in my Do win's I just felt really unstable even with such a light weight, BAH.
-seated close grip cable rows - Subbed these in for the Pendlay Rows as that was irritating my left arm
-Dips - At least one exercise felt good today, next week I'm going to up it to 45.

-Intuflow - Watched some clips online to help and learned a few new ones as well. ankles feel the tightest out of everything.

315 DL must be from all that good Army food you are eating. Nice lifting.
