I felt inspired to start a training log on here. I keep a vague written one with training notes and thoughts, but thought a public one would be nice for receiving feedback and helping keep me in line.
A brief “about me”:
Weight: 185? Last time I weighed myself I was, at least.
Profession: Currently, security guard. Previously, self-defence instructor. Security works pays the bills, and right now I’m in a shitty part of town essentially doing the work of cops with none of the resources. Haven’t been able to get back into teaching since moving to Northwestern Ontario (yet).
Training goals: Simplicity. My training career has been plagued with inconsistency and “paralysis by over-analysis”; I’ve frequently changed programs, stopped doing what I wanted to do simply because I thought I should be doing, which has caused me frustration in my training.
With a child on the way, I’d like to eliminate as much guess work from my training as possible in order to be as present for my wife as possible. With this in mind, my current training will focus on my 3 favourite lifts to keep things simple: the deadlift, the clean and press, and loaded carries (namely the farmer’s walk), with minimal accessory work used just to fill the gaps.
I’ll probably log interesting things that happen at work during the day, simply because sometimes the most hilarious shit happens.
Disclaimer: this log will probably shrivel up and die at some point. That usually happens when I try to commit to internet things.
