Everyone else is doing it....
« on: June 28, 2019, 10:51:26 am »
+4
Already logging my workouts on an app, so figured I'd track them here as well.

Me:  43 years old, 5'9.  Training on and off for 25+ years.  History of ankle sprains.  Recently starting doing ATG program.

Goals:  stay healthy, jump high, run fast.

I believe ChrisM and Coges are on same program, so I figured it would be a good place to track my progress and to get input from the board. 

Any questions or comments.....please feel free to jump in.

I try to fit in as much extra foot/ankle/calf/tibialis work in as possible to strengthen those areas

7/2/19

BW:  179.8.....that's more like it

AM

A.  Calf stretch, 3 mins each side
B1.  Sled push 3 x 40 meters
B2.  Split squat, top set 30 x 10 on 4 inch box
B3.  Seated goodmorning, top set 85 x 10
C1.  Single leg calf raise, top set 20 x 10
C2.  Low cable pull-in

Ankle traction exercises after.  These have made my ankle feel much better while doing them, but not perfect yet.  The split squats really pushed my ankle ROM today too.  Walking and light jogging don't aggravate the ankle right now, but not ready to push it too much with jumps yet.

AM workout

A1. Sled push-pull 3x20 meters
A2. ATG squat, top set 50x20 (standard hit)
A3. Nordic, top set 8 in box x 5.  I did 9 reps last week, so this is discouraging.  I did do 2 sets of 10 beforehand though, one to a 12 in box and one to a 10 in, so maybe it was fatigue

B1. Tib raise, 3x20
B2. QL extensions, 3x10 (top set 15lbs)

C1. DB shoulder press, top set 30x10
C2. Chin up, top set BW x 6

Lower and upper body stretching, some ankle flossing and ankle traction work after workout
