Good session, reverse lunges not as taxing so not dreading it.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up

Oh yeah and forgot to mention that I bought a belt when I start box squatting 200kg+ and deadlifts. I ordered a notch one but they sent me a lever version lol more for my money.

Comment
Initial session wasn't expecting good form when unloaded straight after. During warm up light sprint starts they felt quite good. The sprint sleds felt good after a long time.

Seems like my hunch was right.
Sunday last week I mentioned a coach there asked if the sled I was using was mine that I had bought with my own money and I said it was.

Today as I enter centre receptionist asked me if sled was mine and if I was sure that it was mine and that the same coach I referred to told them that it was theirs and not mine which I denied and he told me to talk with the coach to clear it up.

I talked and she just wasn't convinced but couldn't do anything, so she will always think I stole it but she said she will ask if one of the other coaches took it or not but she believes I stole it.

First they don't let me use the prowler sled as that belongs to the coach and for club use and now accuse me of stealing the small red sled, which first they said I couldn't use and now I can use but should leave it at the centre.

Oh well.

Workout went well did box squats 180kg of 3 reps and 3 sets, which I stopped at 3 as further reps would be slow and I want to keep the fluid constant speed, no grinding.

Then did single leg rdl with back leg on the floor behind. 70kg easy comfortable.

Also decided to implement contrast training. Box squats followed by concentric squat jumps starting from low position and jump up at 60kg.

And single leg rdl followed by holding plate and single leg box jumps so I can use that strength from the squat to dynamic movement.

Then overhead press and cable pull downs for core.

Warm up drills

Soreness: quads a little but nothing that sticks out

Condition: Got to the gym at 5pm and finished at 6:15. Implemented some contrast training, struggled to think of a contrast for isometric hip extension straight leg single so did depth jumps holding weights.

Warm up
   mobility and activation stretches
   light sprint starts

Workout
   step ups with barbell
      - 1 x 5 each leg @20kg
      - 3 x 5 each leg @60kg

   explosive low box step up jumps
      - 1 x 5 each leg @bw
      - 2 x 5 each leg @5kg dumbbells in each hand

   isometric straight leg hip extensions single leg
      - 1 x 5 @bw
      - 3 x 5 each leg @30kg dumbbells
      Note: more easier to do knees locked but with slight bend, i can't hold my hips up only when it's straight, I am to keep knees slightly bent else keep it straight.

   depth jumps from small box to large box
      - 1 x 5 @bw
      - 2 x 6 @5kg dumbbells in each hand then followed by a bw depth jump and try land on big box with minimal knee bend

Cool down

Soreness: quads a little and back a little

Condition: Was feeling a little under the weather so took it lightly

Warm up
   ankle mobility
   activation and mobility stretch

Workout
   box squats
      - 1 x 3 @20kg
      - 1 x 3 @60kg
      - 3 x 5 @160kg - light easy work, made it like a warm up set in terms of speed and explosiveness and minimal struggle

   concentric squat jumps at parallel
      - 2 x 5 @30kg

   Single leg RDL
      - 1 x 3 @20kg
      - 1 x 3 @40kg
      - 3 x 3 @80kg
      Note: I do both legs in one go so my hands are full of calluses, tough and swollen instead of thin and peeling. Also on my right leg it feels unstable that I have to put it on the floor towards the last rep and quad seems to be doing more than it should. so need to work on this leg, left leg is comfortable without any discomfort.

   single leg box jumps
      - 1 x 5 each leg ,knee height box @bw
      - 1 x 5 each leg same height @holding 5kg dumbbells in each hand

   Overhead press
      - 2 x 5 @40kg

   weighted sit ups
      - 1 x 10 holding 20kg dumbbell near chest.

Missed thursday workout due to chest a little congested and now because of pouring rain today I couldn't go to the track I guess it's an opportunity for recovery.

Soreness: lower back muscle a little, glutes, quads, adductor

Warm up
   mobility and activation stretches
   light sprint starts 15 - 20m

Workout
   full squats on pin
      - 1 x 3 @20kg
      - 1 x 3 @60kg
      - 1 x 0 @100kg
      - 3 x 3 @80kg
      Note: Such a fail, maybe pin was too low that I would hit a certain depth before my body can't go lower and then I lean forward to bring the bar to the pin. I recorded myself to check and that's what happened. I have to find a way to progress on the squats.

   Counter movement Jumps
      - 1 x 3 @bw - so sore after every jump because of the squats
      - 1 x 3 @20kg plate holding it

   Deadlifts
      - 1 x 3 @20kg
      - 1 x 3 @70kg
      - 1 x 3 @110kg
      - 3 x 2.5 @150kg
      Note: I was hoping to get to 200kg as I felt if I could hex deadlift 130kg and my previous record was 160kg with belt I would be able to get a bit closer and also I did the 160kg bent knees and now I am grinding at 150kg and failed on the 3rd set.

   Box jumps knee height
      - 1 x 5 @bw
      - 1 x 5 @holding 5kg dumbbells in each hand
      Note: Was a little sore so couldn't do my big box jumps so settled with medium and added some weight.

   Bench Press
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 1 x 5 @40kg
      - 3 x 5 @50kg

   Hanging knee raise
      - 1 x 5 @bw
      - 1 x 30 sec hold hip flexion, knee bent holding 15kg dumbbell between feet

Cool down
   stretch

Ok session, squats need improving, box squat 180kg but struggle full squats at 80kg good form, the lower you go the different muscle is getting activated.

Nice session. Box squat where I lowered the box by 4" made a big difference I was  unable to do 100kg with same explosiveness as 160kg on the previous box. This box was almost parallel thigh slightly above parallel. Some muscles struggle while other muscles are finding it easy and this feeling of struggling while some muscles are not even fatigued is strange. It's a way of strengthening muscles which are weak and doesn't over train the developed muscles.

Soreness: Glutes and hips a little

Condition: It was a good cricket match today so was hard to go, so I took my phone and watched it mid sets and side note, match ended with drama (pakistan vs australia) they somehow hit those six for the last balls remaining just like yesterdays match. Track was wet but I do light runs so wasn't going to be a problem.

Warm up
   mobility and activation drills

   sprint starts x 6 (10m, 20m)

Workout
   Step ups w/ barbell
      - 1 x 3 @20kg
      - 3 x 5 each leg @60kg
     Note: It was a struggle especially balance with one leg and some reps I failed so I redid it, which was when I was half way up I would bring my other leg on to the box. Got through it.

   Drive down explosive step up jumps using low box
      - 1 x 3 each leg @bw
      - 2 x 5 each leg @6kg dumbbells in each hand

   Single leg hip thrusts
      - 1 x 5 each leg @bw
      - 3 x 5 each leg @25kg dumbbell

   Attempted power snatch and failed, I hate these because I can't do it right

   kettlebell power snatch from the floor
      - 2 x 5 @16kg kettlebell

   bent over dumbbell rows
      - 1 x 5 each arm @15kg
      - 2 x 5 each arm @25kg dumbbell

   side bends holding dumbbell
      - 1 x 10 each side @25kg dumbbell

Cool down
   stretch

Comment
Alright session. Step ups are always tricky and knees in parallel make it difficult to get a boost up so back leg gives a slight hand before forward leg takes control. need to find a good contrast exercise to match with the hip thrusts.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up

Soreness: upper glutes, quads

Condition: It was wet and I wasn't going to let it stop my speed session, so I took my spikes and did the sled sessions. felt a little strange due to it being lighter and a little cramped

Warm up
   mobility and activation dynamic stretch

   sprint drills

Workout
   Sled Drags
      - 3 x 10m sled drags @35kg

      - 2 x 10m accelerations

      - 3 x 30m sled drags @15kg

   Flys
      - 1 x 3 x 20m flys (30m acceleration) (walk back recovery)

Cool down
   stretch

Comment
It was a good session for the fact that I got to do the session even when track was wet. Spikes are narrow and but they feel like they are hugging my feet quite tightly no pain except for little finger a little. The spikes felt strange when running with spikes as they felt slow at the start as it is light I was expecting a little more quicker steps but trusting the process. Turning flys into specific endurance work.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

It was a good session, squats getting better, not going to rush it, a little shaky but not a struggle.

Recorded my squat to check form and it's not that bad, a little shaky.

Soreness: little soreness here and there

Condition: Got to the gym at 5:30 for a gym session and track was dry for light sprint starts. Finished at 7:10.

Warm up
   mobility and activation stretches

   light sprints starts 20m x 3 - 5

Workout
   Paused squats
      - 1 x 3 @20kg 3 sec holds
      - 1 x 1 @60kg 3 sec holds
      - 3 x 3 @70kg 3 sec holds
      Note: Is difficult but not challenging for my muscles, muscles felt fatigued and ended on 3 reps as last rep was a struggle for an worked muscle.

   Box Jumps bw
      - 2 x 5 @bw box just below hip height

   isometric single leg supine leg bridge (upper shoulder on bench and my heel on a box) I flex my hips and hold it w/ weights on upper thighs near hips
      - 1 x 3 @bw
      - 3 x 10 - 20 sec hold @30kg dumbbell
      Note: one thing I noticed was, since I try and do it with slight knee bend and then with knees locked, my left leg is not comfortable with knee bent and slowly my knees lock and then I find it easy but for my right leg slight knee bent is more comfortable and locking knees feels awkward and more difficult. so I do slight knee and straight for both to fix any imbalance.

   explosive bw above exercise - push heels on down on bench explosively to propel my hips up and then repeat continously
      - 2 x 5 each leg @bw
      Note: wanted to think of a good contrast exercise to the heavy isometric holds and this one came to my mind.

   bent over dumbbell flys
      - 1 x 5 @4kg dumbbells in each hand
      - 2 x 7 @8kg dumbbells in each hand

   cable pull down core work (reverse crunch)
      - 1 x 5 @25kg
      - 2 x 10 @50kg

   side bends holding dumbbell
      - 1 x 5 each side @15kg dumbbell on one hand and switch
      - 2 x 7 @30kg dumbbell

Cool down
   stretch

Alright session, muscles were fatigued early on the reps from the parallel paused squats, so will continue till I can do 5 comfortably. Others were ok too.
