Comment
A good session, it was a good idea to do 120kg squats again as this time round much less painful and more stronger, so now I can progress by 10kg next week even though I want to up it by 20kg but #AELS. Last set I did it by just descend and just touch and come up, which was way easier and maybe like a transition assistance exercise for the partial squats this thursday. calf raises are easy so I do it 1 rep at a time slowly to make it more difficult. RDL comfortable up to the lower shin, might alternate between deadlifts and RDL per week. Also need to alternate upper body between bench press and shoulder press.

A good but bad session because of rain, this made me stumble a lot when running but I had enough mobility to prevent my self from falling or slowing down.

Soreness: none that sticks out legs a little

Condition: Worst session ever OMG. I saw the weather was little sunny and dry, so I decided to bring my light running shoes, I go outside and it is windy like crazy. I drive to the gym and see grey clouds, I come out and it starts to light patter rain. So I ditch the light shoes in the car. Go to track for warm up, windy and light rain. I start workout mild shower rain but not big droplets, then after it stops and then it hails and then it rains again while the wind still being crazy through and still is now.

Warm up
   ankle mobility
   calf stretch for mobility
   hamstring stretch via front to back kicks
   quad stretch
   single leg glute bridge
   hip thrusts
   single leg hip drive via feet strap @35kg - 7 reps with last rep hold
   slow to explosive reverse lunge 5kg dumbbell in each hand
   box jumps with 5kg dumbbells - 31"box - each hand 5 reps, on 4th rep I hit my left knee on the dumbbell i was holding-pain bearable but annoyed it happened
   single leg jump on 31 inch box - I can jump and lift my knee and place my foot on it but not high enough to push my self up.

Track Warm up
   A walk x 2 x 20m
   A skip x 2 x 20m
   A run x 1 x 20m
   alternating high knee drills x 1 x 30m
   Sprint start to 1 step

Workout
   3 x 10m sprints - all of them my feet slipped back cause of wet track and rain

   2 x 30m sprints - a little better since I decided to run against the wind

   1 x 50m sprints

   At this point morale low, wind and rain and even hail at one point hitting my face and it was very windy I just went in.

Gym workout
   31 inch box jumps

   1 foot on box and perform step ups - one of the reps the ecentric part when coming down I stepped on the outside edge of my foot and rolled my ankle but luckily I dropped to the floor to avoid putting my body weight on it, prob not good idea to continue with ankle mobility drills - ankle rotations.
      - 2 x 5 each leg

   Kettle bell swings 12kg - 1 x 10

Cool down
   stretch
   walk back

Comment
Such an annoying, demoralizing session due to weather and I had just under 2 hours and all that ruined by weather. Sprints were good except for the slips and even when I decided to not explode out just come out and accelerate, still slipped. Windy af. did 1 set 50m and just couldn't continue and had 30 minutes left before gym closes. So being annoyed and then you start doing crazy stuff as routine is ruined and therefore nearly hurt myself with the high box step ups.

Soreness: hamstring

Condition: It was a nice sunny day, but it rained heavily later on the day. I couldn't go on Tuesday, but this was a good session.

Warm up
   ankle mobility
   calf stretch
   hamstring stretch - lying, seated
   quad stretch
   glute bridges, single leg and double leg
   high knee holds /w 50kg thigh strap
   back stretch - front and back

Pre workout treadmill run
   23km treadmill runs 15% incline - it's taking time to run without holding for longer than 3 - 4 seconds. But I do multiple no handed but at the end I forced a 20-25 second sprint, which was not a good idea, because I was tired but still forcing myself to run and when I jumped off I was holding on and jumping off but one leg went outside of the treadmill so I got back up. But the strange thing was after the treadmill run, I was crazy light headed and a bit dizzy, but it got better after some lifting.

Workout
   Partial Squats
      - 1 x 4 @20kg
      - 1 x 4 @60kg
      - 1 x 0 @100kg - thought I would do a box squat but only light touch but this was lower than my normal box squats so back pain kicked in so I had to just sit on the bench and then just stand up and unrack.
      - 3 x 7 @100kg normal partial squats

   Calf Raises Barbell - if I unrack it properly no back pain so it was good
      - 3 x 7,10,10 @140kg - a little unstable at the start I got back into the groove.

   Single leg deadlift with one dumbbell
      - 1 x 7 @25kg each hand with opposite leg
      - 1 x 7 @25kg each hand with same leg

   Back extensions
      - 1 x 10 /w 1 minute hold at the last rep

   Core cable rotations
      - 2 x 10 each side @20kg

   Full depth squats
      - 3 x 3 @pin 13 recorded myself and saw still not low enough
      - 2 x 3 without pin just until my hamstring touch my calves - the hips in line with knees, if I go lower it would be the right depth but for me it would feel like ATG but it isn't, kinda like kingfish when he pauses at the bottom.

My Journey to Squatting is back on, my back felt great, I try not to do a wide stance as my hips can't stand it at low depths so it is kinda shoulder width maybe a tiny bit wider. But I am happy, I can go lower but it will be atg.

Weight is 40kg, slowly by slowly up the weight but only when I can do 10 reps comfortably. my main lifts to improve are box squats and partial squats, this will be just to improve flexibility and slowly lift heavier.

Once I arrive it rains and then it stops and then it becomes sunny and windy and the once I finished and drove home, it felt like my windscreen being shot with a paintball gun, the hail and then the hail just got crazy and became more like an automatic paintball gun when pellet doesn't burst and hail was big, but stopped after a few minutes.

   back stretch front and back

   SVJ - 21 inches x 3 reps x 2 sets

Cool down

Comment
It was a good session, even though the track was wet and my feet slipped at the start, but because of the sun, there were some dry patches, which I found, which the sprints was better and later on the track became dryer with some wet patches, so I looked for the lane which was dryer than the rest.  the sprints felt good but the 50m sprints I didn't have enough energy to put full effort into explosive runs so I just did my best and final run was tired by enough energy to do run. Gym workout was ok.

Soreness: glutes, back a little

Condition: Arrived at 11:30am to the gym. It was nice and warm. The gym was a little empty, finished the workout at 2:30pm.

Warm up
   ankle mobility
   calf stretch
   hamstring stretch lying
   hamstring seated
   quad stretch lunge
   glute bridges w/ leg on box (single each leg and then double leg)
   single leg hip thrusts on bench x 5 with 5 sec pause at bottom and top to get illiopsoas stretched
   high knee single leg holds with thigh strap 2 x 20,10 seconds
   back stretch front and back

Pre-workout treadmill run
   treadmill sprints 15% incline 23km/h
      - 4-5 second without holding
      - 3 second without holding
      - finish with 5 second of running holding - not to drain myself and get light headed like last time

Workout
   Box Squats - I place weight plate on bench - but 10kg plate was used so I used a 15kg plate, which is 1 inch thicker.
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 1 x 5 @60kg
      - 1 x 5 @100kg
      - 3 x 7 @140kg
      - 1 x 3 @140kg with the original 10kg plate 1 inch lower, struggled on last rep

   Walking with 20kg hanging between leg 2 laps for 20m

   Single leg calf raises on leg press
      - 1 x 5 @70kg
      - 3 x 10 @110kg

   Back Extensions
      - 1 x 10 @bw /w 30 second hold on last rep
      - 1 x 10 @15kg plates /w 30 second hold on last rep

   Prayer Break / Yoga

   Stiff legged deadlifts
      - 1 x 5 @20kg bar
      - 1 x 5 @60kg bar
      - 1 x 5 @100kg bar
      - 3 x 7,6.5,5 @120kg
      - 1 x 20 @60kg

   Shoulder press front and side
      - 2 x 7 front and back each @15kg dumbbells in each hand
   
   Cable core rotations
      - 2 x 10 each side @20kg - pulling towards my left side weaker than pulling towards my right side, but not a lot of difference in effort.

Cool down
   stretch
   walk back
   vibrations
   peanut tennis ball roll on back - more knots in mid/upper thoracic muscles

Comment
It was a good session, the box squats at 1 inch increase was so much easier less painfull on the lower back even at 140kg, the pain was only when walking back and doing 2 reps and then it's no pain at all, and the pain on the first few reps was easily 3/10 so not painful but you can feel the pain. Then I did the last rep on the lower box, which the back was same not much pain, but it was more struggle for my leg muscles and could only manage 3 reps. so I will stick to 1 inch thicker plate until a weight I will stop at and then switch there as not much difference. the rest were good work. deadlifts tiring as heck especially when you lift and then you put back on the floor and then repeat. good anyways. no back problems there.
