Sounds good man, I might have to make something like that if my friend and I can find a grassy area to regularly train on, for now we’re on an athletics track for that session.
Passing Skills, Footwork drills, 10m partner carry
8 x 50m short recovery
4 x 10 x 8m with chest to floor
2 games of touch, 7 v 7 half pitch width ways
That was definitely more intense, the 10 x 8m with chest to floor really had me breathing hard, it was about 20 seconds between sets and I didn’t know how many we were doing so went flat out.
Push Press 3 x 5 x 62.5kg (up from 60kg)
Split Stance Military Press
2 x 6 x 50kg
2 x 5 x 52.5kg
4, 3 x 55kg (failed the last rep again!)
Bench Press (A1) 4 x 6 x 80kg
DB Rows (A2) 4 x 6 x 25kg (up from 2 x 20kg, 2 x 22.5kg)
Bench Press (B1) 80kg x 8, 6, 5, 5, 4, 2 (got to 30 in 6 sets instead of 8)
DB Incline Hammer Row (B2) 2 x (12, 10, 8 x 15kg)
DB Press (C1) 20kg x 9, 7, 5, 5, 4 (up from 15kg)
Pull Ups (C2) 10, 7, 5, 5, 3 (chin ups last time)
Three Way Shoulder Raise 2 x (12, 10, 8) x 5kg
I increased the push press without really thinking how difficult it was on Monday. I can kind of rest it on my chest but it puts my wrists in a weak position, I think i’m probably meant to explode it off my shoulders enough that I don’t use my wrists except for lock out but it was awkward and shit this time round.
I failed strict press again on the final rep. 2.5 mins rest catches up on me. I can increase rows next week. I felt much better with the evening session this time around, it was still tough but I was fresh enough to DB press my normal amount. I’m eating more at breakfast so i don’t fade later in the day and I felt more energy in the PM session. Those incline hammer rows really hit my lats, could still feel them this morning from Monday’s workout.
I want to rest tomorrow and do speed and lower body weights on Sunday, that’d be a full week, but the program has two conditioning sessions which i’m effectively trading for team training and I feel that the program will be much harder than that so i might squeeze in conditioning early on a Saturday as long as it doesn’t sap my speed for Sunday.
