Not really sure what to say here, but here goes. Former military, in my 30s, busy life and all that. I like the barbell lifts and messing around with kettlebells, and I really enjoy rucking and am training for my first GORUCK Challenge. Trained off and on for years. That's about it.
Current approach is a biweekly deal consisting of 3 strength workouts (Tactical Barbell), 3 conditioning workouts (running and BW/KB/abdominal movements), 3 days of rucking (two long, one short but heavy), and 1 "ruck PT" day.
Past few days...
Tactical Barbell. Being very conservative with my 1RMs for my first time through.
**Squats - 195 for 3 work sets of 5.
**Bench - 125 for 3 work sets of 5.
**Sumo Deadlifts - 215 for 3 work sets of 5.
**Pre-Fatigue: 20 minutes of interval running.
**Mission: Did a total of 15 chin-ups, 35 elevated push-ups, 40 one-arm snatches with the 16kg, 6 windmills each side with the 16kg, neck isometrics, and 75 reps in abdominal exercises (e.g. four count flutterkicks and hello dollies, leg raises, bicycles, etc.)
6 mile ruck with a 35# pack, pace was 14:15 per mile.
Off day. Rest, recover, stretch.
