    Hi guys I thought I would use this to keep myself accountable in my training.

    I use to compete competitively (armatures) and haven't been training for the past few years. I will spare you guys my issues but in the last few years life beat me down. Lost 2 people I cared about, spiralled into depression and alcohol abuse, lost my job and tried killing myself and lost the will to live.

    I'm on the way to recovery in that regards and trying to build my life back up. My therapist suggested I focus on things post depressed me enjoy and training was one of them also my parents keep shoving Tyson Fury's story down my throat and they really think that the sport that I once loved can be a great tool. So that's' the reason for this log, to keep myself accountable.

    I will be training boxing 3-4 times a week as well as weight training ( my body is a mess right now and I look like a starving crack addict). I will post all my workouts here and thoughts etc

    Thank for reading

    Today's gym workout

    Deadlift: 5x4 with 130kg/286lbs and then worked up to 1x5 143kg/315lbs (which is a PB 5rm)

    Deficit deadlift: 2x5 with 114kg/251lbs

    Sumo Deadlift: 1x5 with 122kg/269lbs

    5xRows
    4x DB rows

    As you can tell my goal is to become stronger and also put weight back on so I will be focusing on the compound lifts and running an athlete version of 5/3/1

    Boxing training today

    Warm up
    3 rounds on the pads with the trainer. Not happy with how this went, timing felt off and didn't have any pop. Trainer also commented that I was throwing lazy shots. Guess muscle memory isn't that fast.
    8 rounds on the bag focusing on my jab and footwork
    3 rounds shadow boxing in the mirror making sure I fully extended my shots.
    Circuit to end the session

    Looks like you have a great program in place with the alternating boxing workouts with low rep high weight lifting. Good Luck!

    Bigger, Faster, Stronger or BFS has an excellent program for that type of lifting if you want to check it out.

    Did not feel like training this morning, stayed in bed for a good 10 minute contemplating life and the purpose of my existence and that the gym wouldn't get my life back on track etc but forced myself to at least get in there.

    <strong>Today's workout</strong>
    Squat: 5x5 with 109kg/240lbs + 1x5 with 120kg/264lbs + **1x5 with 130kg/287lbs**
    (Mother****ing Rep PR at my current teenage girl bodyweight so damn happy I got in)
    Paused squats: 2x5 with 105kg/ 230lbs I was supposed to do 5 sets but my right knee felt weird so thought it best to not risk injury for accessory work
    3x GHR (These killed me)
    Leg curls: 5 sets of 8 reps
    Good mornings: 3 sets of 6 reps
    So happy I got today done and will also force myself into the boxing gym later today. If my knee feels weird then **** it I will use today as a light technical workout but I will get work in.

    Todays boxing session was a mix bag. Literally had to force myself to go ( I do get days when I just want to crawl in a ball in my bed and sleep).

    Warm up

    2 rounds on the bag
    5 rounds sparring. I was told this would be 'light technical sparring' so approached it as such and tried to work on clean selective shots and not purring much into them... Other guy had other thoughts and tried taking my head off and using his 5kg/11lb + weight advantage to bully me...
    That was the 1st round and then a fuse went off in my mind. Something about a bigger person who has been in the gym trying to take liberties pissed me off.

    The 2nd round consisted of me making him miss and triple jabbing him onto the ropes and throwing wild shots as he covered up and throwing wild shots back.

    Third round onwards was easy work, the other dude was tired and I was taking pleasure in making him more tired despite being tired aswell.

    Did another round on the bag but a trainer told me to go home. Apparently I was too tired and he said for a 2nd session back it was enough. No point throwing sloppy shots on the bag and creating bad habits.

    Today's boxing session

    Warm up
    4 rounds on the bag working on movement in and out

    3 rounds sparring which didn't go well. Sparred 2 rounds with a much better fighter (even if I was my best version years ago) and my timing etc still off. Postives from those rounds with him are that I know what to work on at home to make sure I never feel so out classed.
    Other round was with same guy as Wednesday.

    2 more rounds on the bag

    Warm down circuit
