In this log, i will put in some of my workouts and some of my meals. My goal is to be strong and have a high level of conditioning. Not necessarily strong like a powerlifter…strong all around…more athletic. As alpha says on his youtube…the goal is to be dangerous. I have already been training for a long time. I know what type of stuff works for me and what doesn’t. Im no bodybuilder either. I might use some bodybuilderish type stuff and i have done straight up bodybuilding training in the past…but that is just not for me. My family life is changing and i want to be in the strongest and best conditioned state i can be. Its not about being “functional” either…again its about being dangerous. Anyway…

Breakfast/lunch:
Ground beef / white rice / green beans / pineapple (it was in the fridge and needed to be eaten) / thai sauce (costco)
*no real measurements for anything here…but enough for two large meals.

Condensed training session
So i fell off a ladder at work a couple days ago…leaving me kinda banged up and what not. I mean…it was a 12’ high ceiling that i was working on…but anyways i took a couple days off. Todays session was condensed due to time and the fact that it all hurt. But here we go:

Warm up : rear delt raises and toe touches
Work : sumo rdl work up to 235 x 3 x5
Reg rdl work up to 295 x 1 x 2 (wanted to hit 5 but my back was not having it…decided not to hurt myself more)
Inverted rows 3 x 10
Conditioning : 5 kb swing + 5 ab wheel + 5 chins x 3 rounds
10 min jump rope work and then some foam rolling on the lower back to finish

Still feeling beat up from my fall. Today my left shoulder was bothering me in particular. Only limited me on 2 exercises fortunately.

Work:
Chest dips w./slingshot + chins 25 + 8 / 22 + 8 / 23 + 8 / 20 + 8
Ramping barbell row + 15 pushups -Final weight : 225 x 5 + 15 pushups (shoulder limited me here; normally would hit 300ish on rows)
Side delt raises 4 x 10-15 (felt like my shoulder needed it)
Hang position kb c&p 4 x 5 per / side
Barbell curls 3 x 10 (shoulder pain again)

Conditioning:
5 kb swings + 5 air squats + 5 ab wheel x 5 rounds

Still condensed due to my fall…but a good one anyways. I normally have bigger/heavier sessions on the weekend…but we will see how that goes. If my shoulder behaves enough to let me squat at least, i will be happy.
