recons 2nd log attempt
 
Alright I tried to keep progress in a notebook but I kept losing it, so I hope I stick with this to see my progress and benefit from any suggestions. My workout now is more of a strength/power workout then a bodybuilding one. Im preparing for my senior wrestling season, and then Marine Corps boot camp in June.

I workout with my recruiter three times a week, and its usually a lot of running, pull ups, sit ups, and lots of other plyometric fun.
I run 3 miles a morning on the other days, try to keep it under 24 minutes

Im 6'1" and stay between 190 and 210 pounds. Probably ~15% body fat.

Supplements-
Fish oil
Flax seed oil
glutamine
glucosamine
Animal Pak
Protein (ON Whey)
Have taken creatine and NO stuff before but I currently do not

Nice lifting!

Thanks man, you know a lot more about lifting then me, so I was gonna PM you but this is probably easier, what kind of explosive exercises do you know? I do clap push ups, BW jump squats, and weighted jump lunges and cleans, but there has to be some more, if you know any please let me know.

1 arm DB snatches, powercleans, high pulls, OH jerks are some good ones. Also look into doing plyometric stuff as well. Something that I think works well is also supersetting an explosive movement with a compound exercise. For example, doing a set of 8 of front squats and then right after finishing the set go and do 10 or 15 plyo box jumps or something. You can also do it with bench + clap push ups.

Also look into Dynamic Effort work, which is taking about 60% of your 1-rep max for a lift, and doing 6-8 sets of 2-3 reps focusing on explosiveness and speed.

Awesome, thanks wukka.

Today was a great day, 2 hours of open mats so I got some great wrestling in. We had hydration tests as well, I normally wrestle 189, but I weighed in at 193.3 with 13% body fat, so I got the nod to drop to 171! Im excited, its gonna be a little more of a cut then I've ever done, but the competition in my area at 171 is a lot tougher.

Cleans
barx20
95x10
115x3
135x3
145x3
155x3
165x3 (by this point my wrists were screaming)
175x3
185x3 Really stoked about that, I had only gotten 185 up once before today, so this was awesome

DB snatches
40x10
50x5
60x5
75x2,2 (These were really tough, hadn't tried that much weight before today, felt good though)

Did some core work on top of the wrestling-
Hanging knee raisesx20
Cable twistsx20 w/ 15 lbs
Russian twists with a 45 platex2x20


cool down- really light jump rope for about 9 or 10 minutes.

I've got my squat day tomorrow which is: back squats, split squats, sissy squats, jump squats, and box jumps so I'm going to try that compound+explosive with some type of squats and box jumps.

wukkadb 10-13-2008 08:56 PM

Really nice cleans man... you make mine look weak as shit!

recon6991 10-13-2008 09:13 PM

Thanks man, but Ive got like 30 lbs on you haha. Plus i saw your dl numbers, lots better then mine. I wanna pull 400 by new years, its a bit lofty but I think I can get it. I mean without hitching and all, gotta start doing it at school so I can use more weight.

recon6991 10-14-2008 06:45 PM
