    - Takeshi Saitama Routine -


    - 1 RM -



    06/20/2021
    &
    06/18/2021





    - Intro:

    Hello there, last Power Building training I almost
    got hurt, I felt my right quadriceps hurting in leg
    extension, the weights on this machine it's not
    much, but I think this happened, because this
    month I reached my 1 RM in squat two times,
    so after that, researching, I've found an information
    from a Power Lifter, andhis advices was:
    You will get you 1 RM maximum 3 times on a
    year, more than that you are at risk of injury.
    ...If this information is 100% correct, I don't
    know, but I can say putting in practice getting
    1 RM always as possible, to me wasn't a good idea.

    - Training:


    06/18/2021


    Power building - A:
    1) (ML) Bench Press + Leg extension + Rear delts
    2) (ML) Squat + Peck Deck + Skull crusher
    3) Shoulder Press + Triceps push down + Fore arms
    4) Lateral raise + ABS + Fore arms

    Main lifts:
    Bench Press
    Warm up (not more included as a valid set):
    10 x 75kg

    1: 8 x 83kg
    2: 8 x 89kg
    3: 5 x 95kg
    4: 5 x 99kg
    5: 3 x 101kg
    6: 2 x 105kg

    Squat

    I Arrived in Squat, with my quadriceps, already
    injured.

    1: 8 x 95kg
    2: 8 x 111kg
    3: 5 x 125kg
    4: 4 x 135kg
    5: 5 x 125kg (I thought i'd better turn back to 125kg and do
    it again but with a better form, add moreweights would probably
    induce me to go for my1 RM again)



    06/20/2021

    Running workout:
    1 hour.
    Feeling a little better to run, no pain in the
    hamstring and lower back, step by step I'm
    returning to sprint again.

    Boxing:
    30 minutes shadow boxing.
    30 minutes punching bag.
    I could see my punches a few more hard (COOL)




    - Closure:

    From now on, I will go for my 1 RM less times,
    because another thing that the power lifter
    said was, when you build a house you don't
    keep testing the limits of only one
    wooden beam, otherwise you will never build
    a house, but what you do is dedicate more time
    building instead testing the units, and in trainings for power
    is the same thing, you work near of your 1 RM to reach this
    only in a competition or a date far from competitions.

    See you all next time, and I'm just another asian trying

    - Takeshi Saitama


    - New Routine -



    02/07/2022





    - Intro:

    Hello everyone.
    Finally I made my move to downtown.
    I'm still organizing my new home, and it get a lot of work,
    but I'm happy.
    Well, then, now living not so far from good boxing gyms,
    this means I'll share boxing training too.


    Watashi no namae wa Takeshi Saitama desu
    (My name is Takeshi Saitama)


    Going to the point, my training routine will be this.



    - Training:

    Power Lifting:
    Resting between sets, >3 minutes
    As weeks goes on, percentage of Main lifts move up 5%

    week 1:
    70%, 65% and 60%

    week 2:
    75%, 70% and 65%

    week 3:
    80%, 75% and 70%

    week 4:
    85%, 80% and 75%



    A - Dead lift day:
    1)
    70%, 65% and 60% (AMRAP) - Dead Lift (1rm = 144kg)
    * Before moving downtown, with no breaks on my
    training routine, I remember dead lifting somewhere
    around 154kg, but after moving downtown, going to
    a new gym, it seems like I've two steps behind, so
    based om what I was feeling of my performance,
    I moved down my 1rm to 144kg, and appears this is
    working.

    2) 10 x 8 (rpe 8) - Pendlay row

    3) 6 x 8 (rpe 6) - Kroc row



    B - Bench press day:
    1)
    70%, 65% and 60% (AMRAP) - Bench press (1rm = 104kg)
    * Downgraded too

    2) 6 x 8 (rpe 8) - Incline bench press

    3) 6 x 6 (55%) - Close grip bench press

    4) 8 x 6 (rpe 5) - Skull crusher



    C - Squat day:
    1) 70%, 65% and 60% (AMRAP) - Squat (1rm = 144kg)
    * Downgraded too

    2) 5 x 5 (55%) - Paused squat (pauses at bottom = 3s)

    3) 8 x 5 (55%) - Dead lift (1rm = 144kg)



    Boxing:
    If possible, 6x/week



    - Goals:

    Putting all this on practice, I feel and saw my performance
    on both downgrading, maybe training volume are bigger
    than I can handle, or maybe it's because these days I have
    been sick often.
    I think I can lower power lifting training volume,
    (because priority now is boxing) and see what happens.
    My actual goal is manage well my training routine and evolve
    in endurance, seeing my performance in last sparring, I'm out of gas.



    - Closure:

    From now on I will share my experience with boxing too, so if you like
    boxing, welcome.





    See you all next time, and I'm just another asian trying
    to be like water my friend...
