Today's training: Dumbbell Bench Press 5x5 with 90lbs. I'm going to be slowly moving up in weight over the next few weeks. The goal is to get to 110-115 which will be an all time PR.
One Arm Pushups: 3x5. Will be using this as a supplemental exercise. Moving up in reps then loading with body armor.

Noon: 21-15-9 of deadlift, hang Power Clean, front squat, push jerk, with 135lbs. Time: 20:41. This was pretty hard, but a good workout.

Some days it's time to get in the gym and get out: One armed ring row: 5x4. I lowered the rings (making it harder) and got more reps, great improvement.
Axle Barbell curl: 95x5, 105x5, 115x5

My lats and back are sore from all the training on the previous days and I barely slept last night, so I took it a bit easy today.

On that note, a tidbit about training. When I look at a lot of people's training programs, particularly those that are self made, they are way heavy on arm training (along with bench pressing). Any direct arm work (curls, skull crushers, ect) should be done as a finisher or assistance exercise to the main exercises. They are in no way a requirement, and have little to no strength benefit outside of minor help with the main exercises.(BTW, the main exercises should be squat, deadlift, snatch, clean and jerk, overhead pressing, weighted pullups and rows). You'll notice that these are multi joint exercises and main focus on the hip/leg musculature. This is because the hips are your leverage and the strongest area of your body. They simply must be strong for any real world strength and if you plan to have any sort of longevity in your life. This makes it a requirement for the survivalist. People focus on the wrong stuff (benching and arm work) and complain that they are 'gym' strong and it doesn't carry over to real life. Nothing is further from the truth. The gym will carry over, provided the right exercises are done. The problem is most people don't do the right exercises. These exercises also provide training economy. They work the whole body in a short time. We are all too busy, so don't waste your time curling and bench pressing. On a busy day squat and go home, it'll do what you need.

Today's training, again a little on the low volume side, but today mostly due to a tear in the skin on my hand, I didn't want to make it worse, so I just hit it heavy.

Morning: Wrestling, jiu-jitsu classes

Afternoon: Power snatch 5x3 with 155
Snatch Grip Deadlift: 3x325, 3x335. Felt heavy, so no PR. I was going to try 345, If I knew I wouldn't get it, I would have done 340 instead of 335 just to hit a small PR.

AM: Press: 152.5 10x2. For anyone who doesn't know the term "press" always refers to standing overhead press with a barbell. It's only different if a modifier is used such as bench, seated, dumbbell, ect.

Afternoon: 800m run, 50 pullups, 100 pushups, 150 squats, 800m Run. All done with 30lbs of body armor on. Time to completion: 25:11.
