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.

Quote
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.

8/21/19

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
pushup iso
BSS iso
Scap pullup
Calf iso
Ab work

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

Has it really been almost 2 weeks since I've logged?

Life's been hectic, but managing to get some shorter sessions in 4-5 times a week over the last 2 weeks.  Been doing only 'low' type sessions, more of a gpp/get healthy phase.  Typical format has been:
warmup:  forward and backward marches, skips, hops, etc
banded running in place or some type of hop (mostly ankle bounces) for 30 sec, with either abs or pushups in between sets
upper body: hi rep shoulder/upper back/arm work
atg ankle exercise/tib raises/shoulder dislocates

feeling good, will stick to this basic format for another 2 weeks or so before I start to incorporate more 'hi' sessions with sprints/throws/jumps and heavier weights

BW has been holding steady at 178-181 every day

BW:  184.2

Haven't posted in a while, but have been pretty active.  Workouts have been short and explosive...similar to neural charge (Thibadeau) or X-factor (Holler).  Trying to undo years of weight-based workouts and get some athleticism back.  Also been having a second workout for health.

Yesterday's workout:

Workout 1:

A1.  Hurdle hops
A2.  Muscle snatch
A3.  Speed Russian lunge
A4.  Lying med ball chest throw

4 cycles through

Workout 2:

A1.  Calf raise
A2.  Tib raise
B1.  Band face pull, to external rotation, to press
B2.  Band reverse sweep
B3.  Band overhead flexion/extension (reaching back as far as possible)
C1.  Patrick step up on 4 in box
C2.  VMO bounces
D1.  y-stretch
D2.  t-stretch

2-3 circuits of each, high reps, trying to get ankles, knees and shoulders in good shape.  Felt great after this

Trying this again.

Lately, been following workouts from Dr. Tommy John out of his book (good book BTW).  Started on the beginner routine on Apr. 1.  Shoulder aches have pretty much gone away, still working on ankle issues.
The workouts follow an A/B format, and repeat.  Gonna try to give this a fair try, 3 months, and see how things go from there.

My daily routine is normally a walk in the morning, with maybe some ISO's or mobility stuff after, workout in the evening. 

BW:  189.2

Today is workout A:

A. Warm-up

B.  3-way hip circles (x25 in both directions in all 3 positions)

C1.  Squat hold (30 sec)
C2.  30 yard march  (3 circuits)

D1. Squat hold (30 sec)
D2. 30 yard skips (3 circuits)

E1. Push-up hold bottom (30 sec)
E2. 20 Statue of Libertys (3 circuits)

F1. Push-up hold bottom (30 sec)
F2. 20 Scap reps (3 circuits)

G1. Calf raises x 50
G2. Spinal Hygiene routine (15 reps each move, each way)
G3. Cross-crawl supermans (x 100)

Will post workout 2 tomorrow when I go through it.

The workouts are based off of Jay Schroeder's stuff.....I know he gets some hate around here, but I'm enjoying them so far.
They are a lot harder than I thought they would be, but part of that is my work capacity is shit.

If anyone has any questions about the workouts, exercises, etc......hit me up
