Haven't journaled much lately, workouts have been haphazard.  Taking a break from the ATG stuff, the KOT squats aggravated my knee,

ah damn that sucks about the knee.

and I want to add in more jumping into my workouts.  Just ordered 'applied sprint training' by James Smith the other day.  About 1/4 of the way through it.  Good explanation of Charlie Francis type workouts, but it's a tough read.  Also just got 'speed strength' by Joel Smith, gonna start on that one next.

I really need to focus on my lower leg (foot/ankle/calf) strength and elasticity, aerobic conditioning and shoulder health.  Started a high/low type set up yesterday, so we'll see how it goes.

BW:  didn't weigh

Workout 1:

Warmup:  marches, skips, high knees....forward and backward

Was planning on a few short sprints afterward, but achilles felt tight, so did some ~30 meter buildups instead

Hi/lo pogo jumps
Med ball chest pass
2/1 pogo jumps
Rotational med ball throws

Squat 3x2
Incline Bench 3x3

ATG ankle exercise
Shoulder dislocates

Workout 2:

SL stand
ISO pushup
ISO BSS
Scap pullup
ISO calf

i remember James Smith on CF forums, smart guy, also very combative iirc. hah.

BW:  181.6

Workout 1:

Warmup=forward and backward marches, skips, high knees, etc

Banded run in place - 5 sets
Jump rope - 5 sets
Upper body circuit weights, high reps

Workout 2:

SL standing iso

Today was a 'low' day.....higher volume, low intensity.  Achilles was a little tight this morning, but felt better as I got warmed up.  Will see how I'm feeling tomorrow.  Warm-ups are basically the same for low and high days, just some generic bouncy type stuff to get the blood flowing.  I have no issues with doing back to back low days if I feel that's what my body needs.

Good workout today.  Achilles feeling better.  Sprints felt good, body not used to being at top speed.  Lots of room for improvement.  Jumps and throws felt good.  Getting coordination back for power exercises.  Squat and bench are just for general strength...nothing too heavy, just to get a stimulus
