Allen nice job on the BW. 188 is lean. You had to weigh around 200 when you pulled 315 in December. You are crushing it man.

Enjoy combatives. I am training BJJ tonight also.

Thanks Derek, yeah I was sitting at the high 190's back in December. I wish we did more combatives!

No PT today, M9 qualification and shotgun familiarization. Shot 43/50 and got 5/5 for the German Armed Forces Expeditionary Badge (1 event out of many). Then later I got sprayed with OC to get my "certification." It was awful, I would rather get CS gas all day long than get OC'ed again.

bw = 188

AM
Joint mobility upon waking up 5 reps each movement


Noon
45 minute walk outside in my Vibram Five fingers, a very nice day today


Evening - Testing Day for Wendlers 5/3/1 program
1. Warmup
ECWU #1 modified w/o pec mobilization
jump rope - 50 singles, 25L/R, 20 double unders

2. Strength
deadlift - 45 x 8, 95 x 5, 135 x 3, 185 x 1, 225 x 1, 275 x 1, 275 x 11w/Lynx grips
pullups - slow, chest to bar - 6, 8, 8
bench press - 45 x 8, 95 x 5, 135 x 3, 185 x 9
Oly squat - 45 x 8, 95 x 5, 135 x 3, 185 x 1, 225 x 2
military press - 45 x 8, 95 x 5, 135 x 3

Notes:
-Testing Day for Wendler's 5/3/1 program - Aimed for 80-85% of my 1RM and then you use this formula to calculate the training max to use for the program.
Weight lifted (lbs) x reps x .0333 + weight lifted = Max; training max = 0.9 x Max
-deadlift - This felt good today I think I could have eeked out another rep or 2, my training max this time will be 340 pounds
-bench press - This felt prety good too, considering I haven't really benched since January, my training max will be 215
-back squat - I'm not sure if it was that I was tired or what but this was terrible I was thinking 225 was going to be at least 8+ reps but after 2 I was just done, it's ok I'm going to really try to leave my ego at the door and work through the light weights like Wendler says in his ebook, my training max is 215 pounds
-military press - wasn't really sure how I was going to dp, some slight twinges involved but not straight out pain, training max will be 135 pounds


Evening
Foam rolling and lacrosse ball soft tissue work ~20 minutes
