animus's TM training log
I was on SS for over 7 months (feb. 10), before I switched to TM upon moving to a university (aug. 22). Going to a university has given me access to one of the most well stocked gyms I've ever seen (bumper plate stations and squat racks as far as the eye can see), and since I've had the good fortune of working out there, along with switching to TM, all my lifts have gone up quite well. As of now I'm training for general strength and power, not really specific to any activity.
Favorite lift: varies, but for now a tie between squats and power cleans.
Weaknesses: Bench, OHP
Main Goal: getting my 5RM bench, squat, and deadlift up to 2 plate, 3 plate, and 4 plate, respectively.
Main Goal #2: attaining PC 3x5 at BW
5RM's at the start of TM
Squat: 260 x 5
Bench: 200 x 5
Deadlift: 355 x 5
Over-Head Press: 125 x 5
Power Clean: 155 x 3 x 5
These are my current 5RM's:
Squat: 300 x 5
Bench: 210 x 5
Deadlift: 391 x 5
Over-Head Press: 135 x 5
Power Clean: 182.6 x 3 x 5
This was a Heavy Volume day (October 31st):
Low-Bar Back Squat:
270x5x5 *[went well]
115x5x5 [got up to work sets but pain in the inside of my elbow (golfers elbow?) told me that it might be a good idea to rest my elbow for this week]
374x5 (deloading from 391.6x5 as my 391.6x5 seemed like it was taking me too long between each rep)
[did 374 but it felt harder than I thought it would, might have to consider deloading more]
weight (in pounds) x rep x set
*[ ] brackets indicate post work out notes

This was a rest day (November 1st)
Drilling basketball technique 30 min
Run 1 mile as fast as possible (shooting for under 7:30 min)[didn't quite make that time]
total ~40 min
Light Volume Day (November 2nd)
180x5x2 [form felt good, I'm ready for my weekly 5RM increase on friday]
(Because of my elbow issue I'm going to replace BP with DB flys because the elbow is kept in a relatively isometric position)
Dumbell Flys (weight recorded per hand)
[flys felt good, I might consider replacing BB bench press with the DB version]
[this training session went well]

Heavy-Volume, Medium-Intensity Day
275x5x5 [went well]
Bench Press: (hopefully my elbow is healed up, the injury must've occurred from shit form or something.)
190x5x5 [worked on form, felt a lot better on my elbow, surprisingly nice bench session]
374x5 [a little slower than I would've liked, but overall good, will do same weight next week before I start going up again.]
