Journey to the East (training log)

  1. Journey to the East (training log)

    It has been sometime AM, but I'm back with a more unique mindsent and goals than before.
    Will be in Thailand to train for a month, a training vacation if you'd call it something.

    Plan on making this log mainly for prepping but might still update while over.

    Over there I will be training roughly 5hrs a day in MT, with a possibility of some BJJ and wrestling work thrown in alongside my own strength training programming.

    If you don't remember my past, my current goals will seem normal so brief history, I was way into getting bigger and stronger at all and any cost, ended up losing lots of mobility and cardiovascular system was broken to keep it simple lol one set of stairs had me dying.

    Current goals are working on mobility, joints, and cardiovascular system with maintaining strength levels. Also, I am cutting weight making it a challenge but I have been cutting since April, went from 180+ range to 170 below range, trying to get to 160 before departure.

    I leave for my trip on August 29 and will be there like September 1

    Mon/wed/fri: strength days 5/3/1 template modified with 5s instead (was in book) with some other junk sprinkled on

    Tues/thur: boxing- got a coach and train for 2hrs with him

    Thinking might toss in some jogging in next week, I've cycled it in and out of my training alongside with sprints

    Cutting don't really heavily track calories or macros except for protein, but my weight has gone done gradually tho next week might need to get strict with it as I'm weighing 168 and wanted to be 160

    Today is kind of a Hail Mary day in the gym, just go in and do what I feel not really programmed or anything, just make sure to hit abs for sure but everything else is fair game or not.

    Switched protein powders currently using Carnivore, which is a beef based powder, the taste is excellent but is very thick and strong flavored as I usually take 3 scoops at a time but can only handle 2

    Weekend was a bit crazy with girlfriend or better said my ex-girlfriend now. Didn't really effect me too much and had a whole day with my boys so My head is on right. Also got a photo shoot done as my friend is a photographer, mainly in casual wear but also got some shots in my Muay Thai gear.

    Weight fluctuations happened a bit this weekend anywhere from 166-169 so plan on fixing that this week and staying strict, I was solid Saturday but family wanted to do bottomless TGI.

    To clean up my act I plan on counting macros and such starting tomorrow, I would today though I have a **** ton of chicken and yellow rice already cooked and didn't get the macros down on either. So today would be a really rough estimate.

    Strength Training-
    63x5,72x5,81x5 percentages on deads and overhead press.
    Neck curls 3x10x10lbs (both ways)
    Chin-ups 3x10xbw
    Cable crunch 3x15x50
    Leg raise 3x20xbw

    I work everyday this week so my western boxing schedule is tba, usually go in morning to coach

  4. August 9th
    Tuesday did some mild boxing with some makeshift heavy bag i crafted. Also got some weight work done but nothing substantial.

    Got my visa in the mail so we are looking green to go. Last week was full of craziness but this week is looking a lot more chill and will be able to get to my boxing coach which is gonna be busting my balls lol. Got a bit of a cough going not sure what it is, I was chilling with this girl that was sick and think she may of gave it to me srs haha well at least it isn't herpes. I need a deload like no other my strength is dropping faster than the preachers daughters pantys

    Didn't update yesterday but did head over to boxing coach and wasn't as bad of a session. Possibly because I recovered better without the mixture of boxing and strength training or generally just needed a deload. Haven't had a deload in some time and didn't really think on departing from boxing but now that I am kind of sickly it makes sense. Squats today felt really good but I only have one more full week till I head over to Thailand and don't know how much weight stuff ill be handling. So possibly will leave training maxes as is and see how I feel.
