Hey All, I've lurked for a long time, finally started posting earlier this year, and now that I've graduated and am about to enter the real world, I decided I wanted to post a log here to prepare for the future. I am currently a USMC Officer Candidate. I have already completed OCS and I will be accepting a commission as a 2nd Lt in a few months. I should be heading off to TBS (The Basic School, my first duty station/school) sometime towards the beginning of 2015. Until then, I want to get into really good shape. My goal MOS is 0302 (Infantry) or 0203 (Ground Intel) so fitness is a must. I want to focus on getting stronger and better at ruck marches, so my plan will include a lot of that. Additionally, I have a love of martial arts. Long ago, I did Tae Kwon Do, and recently started incorporating it into kickboxing, and so far it's going pretty well. I also have started doing BJJ. So I plan on doing 3 MA workouts a week. Next week, I will be testing my lifts to get maxes to start my program, as well as taking trial classes at the gyms I plan on training at now that I'm back home and away from my college. My lifting program is based around Wendler's 5/3/1, with the addition of heavy back training, and a little long distance running. My schedule is- M- Lifting A T- BJJ Class W- Lifting B H- BJJ Class F- Lifting C S- (morn) 5 mile run/Functional fitness workout (afternoon) Striking/MMA Class In addition, on MTHF mornings, I will be doing a 3 mile weighted vest/weighted pack walk to work on my rucking. My lifting routine is as follows A Snatches (3/2/1 - same percentages as 5/3/1, but lower reps) Squat 5/3/1, DB Row 5x10/ BB Row 5/3/1, Squat 5x10* Triceps/Ab SS B Farmers Walks (4x) W. Pull Ups 5/3/1, Incline DB Bench 5x10 OR Bench 5/3/1, BW Pullups 5x10* Romanian Deadlift/Ab SS OR Front Squat/Ab SS* C Cleans (3/2/1) OH Press 5/3/1, Deadlift 5x10 OR Deadlift 5/3/1, OH DB Press 5x10* Biceps/Ab SS *The workouts are cycled, ie one week its heavy squats and volume row, next week heavy row and volume squats. I will be going for 6 weeks, so that every one of the six major lifts goes through all three 5/3/1 workouts before I deload and reassess. I'll also do 15 min of sprints/intervals as cardio after the lifting sessions. My diet is as of now 4000 calories a day, with a goal of 200 grams of protein, and the rest coming from fats, veggies, or clean carbs. After 6 weeks, I'll reassess and add/subtract calories as necessary. Breakfast- Eggs, Steel-cut oats, oranges Lunch- Chicken Breast, salad (avocado, pomegranate, and other good stuff), rice Dinner- Fish on MA days, Steak on Lifting days, sweet potatoes, and steamed veggies Workout- Banana pre workout, gatorade during, protein shake post Before Bed- Greek Yogurt and granola I'll post the maxes I get next week on here before the actual log starts. Any motivation/input will be greatly appreciated.
