Training Log-Day 1

I decided that I will start to post my training sessions on my blog so you guys can see how I train myself and my athletes. Most posts will include video clips of the workouts. Unfortunately, today I had to train at my college so there won’t be any footage today.

Here’s the workout:

1) Back Squat- 6 x 5. I am following Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 I worked up to 315 x 5

2) RDL’s- 3 x 8     225 x 8, 275 x 8, 275 x 8

3) DB Bulgarian Split Squat- 3 x 8   55 x 8/8,60 x 8/8,65 x 8/8

4) Band GHR- 3 x -12  Light Band x 12, Medium Band x 10, Medium Band x 10

5) Ab rollout- 2 x 10

I usually start all workouts with an explosive movement. Today I was going to box jumps but I was pressed for time so I just started with heavy squats.

The whole point of this workout is 3 fold. 1- To build my squat. The squat is an indicator lift in my program. If my squat is going up, I know I am getting stronger and building a great foundation of strength. 2- To overcome muscular imbalances caused from baseball. Unilateral training is the best way to overcome muscular imbalances caused from baseball.  3-Bulletproof my body from injury. Strengthening the posterior chain is critical to bulletproofing from injury.
