Had a good workout at taekwondo last night, but hurt my foot going for a roundhouse kick and missing the target. Long story short, while it didn't feel that bad last night, this morning I ended up with a nice swollen foot.

Swelling subsided, but I ended up doing light weight high reps. In any case, last couple of heavy workouts, I was unable to get the 5 reps I was shooting for in bench or squats. All this combined, I thought getting into full body periodization would be the sensible thing to do.

Basic structure -

SUNDAY
OHP (M)
Cleans (H)
Rows (M)
Squat (H)
Bench (H)

TUESDAY
OHP
Cleans
Rows
Squat
Bench
fun lifts / iso
all lifts are light weights high reps

THURSDAY
OHP (H)
Cleans (H)
Squat (M)
Bench (M)
Deadlift (H)

M = Medium intensity (volume work)
H = High intensity (low reps, heavy weight)

Cardio will be done Mon, Wed and Fri in form of taekwondo.
Saturday is complete rest.

Will count the previous heavyish session as the first session of the periodized approach. Today's session is, therefore, day 2 of this approach - and hence a light session.
