TUESDAY

hang cleans 5x5 @ 135

towel grip pull ups 5x5

bent over row 3x10 @ 115
into shrugs     3x15 @ 115

Curls 5 sets: bar, DB hammer, cable, DB, cable w/ rope

Hang cleans were real light. I always clean from the floor and get under the weight, hang cleans felt like cheating. Normally I would just do cleans but my training partner insisted we do hang cleans insted. I feel way more trap involvement but I don't get that complete fatigue I get from full cleans.

Good layout.

Alternating Power cleans and hang cleans has its benefits. i promise you as your hang clean poundages go up, your power clean will go up more. Be explosive!

Good luck!

Cool

Cool

so long as your coordination is good, definitely. frankly i find hang cleans easier, but then i've always sucked at technique. Tongue

My goals??

I'm trying to get stronger and more explosive. I was dealt a good genetic hand and I have endurance in spades without really having to do and endurance training other than what I get from just grappling and kick boxing. The problem I have is I'm 6 foot fighting at 155lbs and all the guys I fight are so much more muscled and compact. My height does have a lot of advantages but a guy that weighs the same as me but is six inches shorter is usually going to be a lot stronger and have better leverage.

I guess power is really the focus of what I'm going for.

In my sport you have to work really hard to get opportunities and advantages. when I get the chance I want to be able to fully exploit them.

TUESDAY

10 minutes jump rope

BW Squats
1x20
2x10
1x5

Front Squats
1x5 @ 105
5x5 @ 165

in between working sets I did 5 jump tucks for height

DB Snatches
1x10 @ 60
2x10 @ 70
5 with one hand then 5 with the other

Skips for height
side shuffle bounds
bounds for height
bounds for distance
Heel to toe walk (walking calf raises)
Farmers walk 48kg

felt horrible before my workout. I spent all weekend up in the mountains at 6500 feet. Hiking and scrambling boulders and what not with a 35lbs pack in that thin air really took it out of me. My legs felt so heavy this morning I was dreading training. to my surprise once I started working out I felt great. the squats went up fast and my back position stayed perfect. I felt like if I wanted to I could have thrown that 70db through the ceiling during my snatches too. I think my body is finally starting to get up to speed.

Havent been on line in a while, I've got some catching up to do

Thursday

TRX Suspension trainer seminar

These guys came into the gym and worked us out on this suspension trainer they developed. Its basically just straps hanging from the squat rack that have adjustable length hand and foot holds. some of the stuff seemed really good peripheral exercises and good for stabilization but a lot of it was just for show.

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Sand sprints, hill repeats, Med ball up-downs
