    1/6/14



    Tuesday - Workout


    MORNING WEIGHT: 164LBS

    BAAAAAD WORKOUT, just realised I haven't progressed much at all! Injuries, Exams etc. This summer I can't mess about and with that I'm trying to add as much mass as possible and maybe drop fat in about september, I realised I was just trying to lose fat and get lean for summer and did not have performance in mind. I know I've gotten more athletic since last year but strength wise not much has changed so I am switching my focus. Today was a deload by the way.

    Bench Press

    50kg x 8, 60kg x 5, 65kg x 5, 70kg x 5, 72.5kg x 3, 60kg x 5

    Getting back to linear progression soon, just went random with the sets to get an idea of where I'm at. I'm guessing my max now is around 185lbs, need to touch 225lbs real quick though.

    Squat

    60kg x 5, 70kg x 3, 80kg x 3, 75kg 3x5

    Back to linear progression!! We'll see how much I can add weekly

    Pull Up

    3 x 5

    Shoulder Press

    15kg 3x5 , nice and light

    DB Incline Press

    20kg 3x6

    Summary

    Workout wasn't great, didn't eat properly and wasn't fueled but I can't make that a habit. Hopefully back in the gym on Thursday, not sure on what to do tomorrow, maybe some mobility work
    Bench: 255lbs (115kg)
    Squat: 320lbs (145kg)
    Deadlift: 430lbs (195kg)

    Lifted on Thursday but my phone which I use to record workouts has broken so I can't give details, back to linear progression though.

    Want to get back in the gym on Sunday and run some sprints also

    6/6/14



    Sunday - Workout


    BACK IN THE GYM!
    Lifts are progressing again, hope to get a 90Kg bench before August and hopefully two plates come september. That means when I cut my strength will hopefully only drop slightly and I'll be stronger than I am now at a lower body fat %.

    Bench Press

    135lbs x 5, 145lbs x 5, 155lbs x 5, 165lbs 3x3, 155lbs x 5

    Since I did 155lbs 3x5 on Thursday I decided to do a 3x3 on a weight 10lbs up. Hopefully I can continue to do this and next week I should do 165lbs 3x5 but 175lbs 3x3 on the last workout. I'll also be going to American Football training so I may not be able to get 3 sessions in.

    Incline Bench

    110lbs x 8, 110lbs x 6, 110lbs x 6, 135lbs x 6

    Low rest periods here

    Pull Up

    3 x 6

    Up 1 rep from last session

    Dumbell Row

    55lbs 4 x 10

    Very easy! Going to try and linear progress in this starting next week

    Vanity Work

    Did exercises like curls, front raises etc. to finish the workout then hit the field.

    Field Work

    Couldn't get too many sprints in today but got my sister to film a start for my 40. Hopefully some of you guys can critique! I was already fatigued and had a quad cramp before so I wasn't too explosive coming out and I think I rose up too early. Anyway, here it is:



    ground wasn't flat either but there it is!

    Summary

    Average workout, didn't hit squats since I intended on sprinting. Just looking forward to gaining strength and muscle again! Planning to register for the January/April SAT also, my path to America will most likely be through academic ability and hopefully I can enhance that with Sport but I know the difficulties
    Bench: 255lbs (115kg)
    Squat: 320lbs (145kg)
    Deadlift: 430lbs (195kg)

    Been in contact with GB Head Coach, trials in mid September! Gonna lean out now and then lean bulk until next summer. No point holding unnecessary fat.

    Will try and log more workouts too!

    Well damn, looking back at my work I really did not progress how I should've, school and random things did get in the way however since I started I can say that I have improved athletically and have achieved many great academic feats, now I realise that back then I didn't really want it that bad and was thinking too much in the short term, my goals right now are to make the GB u19 team for the European Junior Championships in 2015 and IFAF world team in 2016 which will face the USA. Currently at just under 160lbs which is poor however my strength has not really dropped. Still have around a 185lb bench, a 240ish pound squat but that really isn't good enough. Athletically however I have improved, looking at the USA talent for CBs in 2016 in terms of production on field and things like vertical and speed I feel I can compete with some of those guys too. I'll be starting a new log for 2015 which not only will encompass my workouts but also academically for things like the SAT and A Levels. Thanks for the support guys!

    Ok another quick goal readjustment should I say, I have realised that I shouldn't really be upset or be sweating about a scholarship or a look to play in the states, the way things are in the UK opportunities don't come like that, the international season should've been over but I think it has been pushed to the summer so highlights can't come for months. Long story short I am going to continue my academic focus and strive to make the big teams this year and play well and have fun in the sport, if I can further my education in the USA then I'll definitely look to play on their team.

    Went to a football combine today and got some of my scores back, overall it was a good experience and gave good insight for the drills. My group were the DBs and we ran individual drills for about 45 mins before we got into combine testing so I was already fatigued by the time we started.

    Excuses aside, I ran a 4.75 40 yard dash which was completely electronic, and then I ran a 4.35 shuttle and a 33inch vertical jump, not sure on other figures but it was very eye opening. I could have scored much better had the DB drills not been done prior to the combine stuff but also got pointers on how my 40 technique needs to be fixed and that I could've ran in the 4.6s today. Anyway it was a good way to measure where I am athletically and will be improving big time next time around.

    Very interesting looking back at this haha, in about a year I decided I didn't love American Football enough to play for the states but I did end up getting some contact from placement programs - the quality of education however was not favorable. I'd say I only began lifting more seriously now with a physique focus but the athletic aspect is still there, I have a place at a top 5 university here in the UK and will probably pursue either Rugby or Football at the University Level.

    Updated Stats:
    Height: 5'11
    Weight:168lbs
    Bench: 255lbs (115kg)
    Deadlift: 430lbs (195kg)
    Weighted Chins: 35kg x 5
    Haven't been able to squat much recently!

    Overall my stats went up and relative strength has gotten much better despite an official bulk not occurring with my focus being on education haha, this has helped with athleticism greatly. I'm leaner than before and my aim at the mo is to improve strength until about June then drop my body fat to around 7-8% by August. Thanks!
    Bench: 255lbs (115kg)
    Squat: 320lbs (145kg)
    Deadlift: 430lbs (195kg)
