August 7, 2019 – Lower Body Strength and Power

I think the mobility and balance work that I’ve been putting in lately has been paying off.

Definitely able to sink my hips well.

On my lifts, I have not been going heavy. I haven’t gone over 300lbs on squats or deadlifts for nearly six months.

Much of this is because, at this point, I do not see the need to based on my goals, which are to:

  • Become more attractive than George Clooney as I age
  • Keep my beautiful girlfriend happy with the way I look
  • Not get injured by the 20-year-olds I roll with in Jiu-Jitsu
  • Be able to hike, run, sprint into my 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and on
  • Oh yeah, and then Kevin Meier hit me with another goal – to be alive and coherent for the US Tricentennial.

Today’s workout:
Squats 4 sets of 8, 6, 5, and 10
Squat cleans from the hip + Romanian deadlift complex 5 sets of 3 + 5
Single arm Incline dumbbell press 2 minutes each side with 15 lb dumbbell (this sucked big time)
Turkish getups 5 sets of 1 each side
Diamond pushups 5 sets of 10

What did you get done today?
