Combat Conditioning

Strong Back = Strong Body = Strong Mind
Strength Training
Weighted Ring Dips with 70# for 3x2
Weighted Ring Pull-Ups with 70# for 5x2
Weighted Pistols with 70# for 3x2
One-Arm barbell overhead push-press with 95# for 2x2 (alternating arms)
Gobble Walk up and down steep hill trails [With 2x 50# kettlebells]
8 sets of 50 m Farmers Walk with 8 Goblet Squats [resting 30 sec between sets]
Trail Running Sprints up steep steps with 20# vest and 45# Sandbag
2 rounds
20 sec sprint, 10 sec rest, 20 sec sprint, 1:10 min rest [that’s one round], repeat
Then walked down hill and repeated for another 2 rounds [8 total 20 sec sandbag sprints]
200 m uphill sandbag throw [45#]
The strength training felt very good and I did not push it to failure. The reps were controlled. I will work on these gymnastics body-weight (BW) movements with heavy weights. I have a goal to get all of these lifts at 100 plus pounds added to my BW. The sprinting with the sandbag and vest felt really good too. It was tough and I felt fatigued yet my legs were not too wobbly afterwards.
Quote of the Day
"Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back."
— Heraclitus
