Default Starting Strength + Muay Thai

August 9th, 2007

Starting a new journal. Following Rippetoe's famous routine. Today was alright, set the weights back a bit. Was a bit exhausted from doing Muay Thai an hour before though.

Muay Thai's getting a bit hectic and I need a low-volume routine like this. Looking forward to gaining some decent power, I don't care about mass right now. I'm going to lay out some goals for myself, hopefully these will help get me there:

SQUAT - 245 x 5
BENCH PRESS - 205 x 5
DEADLIFT - 295 x 5
MILITARY PRESS - 135 x 5
POWER CLEAN - 155 x 5

I want to hit these by the end of the fall semester (early December). Anyways, today's workout...

WORKOUT A

Squats
3 sets @ 185 x 5

Bench Press
3 sets @ 165 x 5

Deadlift
1 set @ 225 x 5

Dip
2 sets @ bw x 8

Decline Crunch
2 sets @ 25 x 10

Just got back from a 1.5 hour Muay Thai class and it was pretty brutal. Ate the following right after:

- chocolate protein shake
- one-third of a frozen pizza
- vanilla cone from McDonald's
- sugar-free freezie

Not too bad, though. Comes out to about 40 grams of protein, 70 carbs, and around 20 grams of fat.

Good luck. Your strength will come easily with this program. Also, the size will be there if there is enough food coming in. As you said you're not too worried about size, strength will come anyways.

Good luck once again. Those are some decent goals you've set yourself for.

Had to go out of town today real early (at least for me), so I was tired as heck going into the gym. I picked up some Jolt energy drink from the gas station and had it before and during the workout which helped somewhat. Still a decent day despite getting barely any sleep the night before...

WORKOUT B

Squat
3 sets @ 185 x 5

Standing Military Press
3 sets @ 95 x 5

Power Clean (from hang)
3 sets @ 115 x 5

Chin-up
2 sets @ bw x 8

Hanging Leg Raise
2 sets @ bw x 10

I know a couple guys who got in the ring a little too early and got rocked.

Hoping to train in Thailand for a month next summer. Maybe after that... Grad school is just going to be too hectic to diet down (probably try and fight in the 170s).

Training in Thailand? That would be awesome! Are you in the process of planning that trip yet?

Do let me know when you plan on preparing for a fight, I'd love to see how you go about that.

It's just talk at the moment. If we go it'll be next summer. Check out www.tigermuaythai.com, it looks sick.

I will for sure. It'll be in Ontario probably so maybe I'll see ya out there [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I'm a long way away though. A couple guys from my gym are competing in Wasaga this weekend though.
