    Day 20 bodyweight

    I did 10 press ups followed by 10 Saigon squats until I reached 200 of each, the only rest I had was moving position
    Initially the press ups were difficult as I haven't done any of that kind of press in a while, was I got warm the whole thing was easy as pie

    The squats proved that my flexibility is fart, I also cant get down without leaning forward probably more than I should


    Day 21 bodyweight


    I did some chins: 6,5,4,3,2,1,5,4,3,2,1,4,3,2,1,3,2,1,1, I only had 15 sec rest between sets, found it pretty easy and kept strict hanging form with no kip then I did 5*8 dips and a truckload of single dips to chins as the bar I was using was not my usual

    Day 42
    Did no gi and mma class
    Was ok, intro classes so nothing full on
    Learned a couple of drills, simple pimple stuff
    Maybe an hour and a half in all

    Did my chins:7-1,6-1,5-1,4-1,3-1,2&1&1 = 90, about 15 sec reset between sets
    Did one long bag round working mainly on straight punches and movement
    Back feels quite creaky, might stick with the mat work and body-weight for a couple of days until I adjust

    Day 23
    went to the gym and did a whole lot of rounds on the bag, did a few hundred situps and worked on stretching out my hips. Had terrible cramps in foot but really not unusual.
    It's now day 24 and I've officially missed leg day so to speak, I haven't picked up any metal since day 18 which was six days ago, will have to do some serious volume in my next session.
    Had the intention of smashing squats today but went to bed and stayed in bed, woke up feeling kitten weak and achy all over, Mrs and bub had a virus, hope it ain't got me, maybe I should try and pin it under some weight......Rousey got KO'ed so happy days

    Day 44

    Went to gym expecting No Gi class.
    Was open mat gi and a few MMA novees sparring.
    Need to buy gi as they seem to encourage no gi as a transition to MMA which is not why I'm doing it.

    2 Silly pricks had a retarded argument, silly prick 1 was mma, silly prick 2 was MT and had a fan club who were exclaiming loudly how so and so was in Thailand and owee this and owee that lolol.
    Seems like there's def some immature irations in this club, getting salty looks too lol, must be coz of the fuck you tattoo on my forehead.
    Also seems a bit faction clicky, like some bjj guys no like the MMA guys and the muay thai guys no like MMA etc etc.
    Maybe I just turned up on a day when the douche was strong and there were no instructors.

    One Black Belt showed up to roll with the half dozen other belts........what a G.C.
    He was def no nonsense and had a chimpanzee build.

    I made a young buddy from a previous class, we shared our whitebelt philosophy and then

    Did some bag then deads:

    2*8@70
    2*3@120
    3*1@150

    Bent over db row:
    3*8@32.5 e arm.

    Chins:
    5-1,4-1,3-1,2-1,1 =35 w 5sec rests.
    I've also lost weight.....boooo.

    Had days 45 and 46 off to hang with my young dude
    Knee still feels rubbery, starting to worry a little.

    Day 47 today.

    Going to No Gi tonight will do Squats after class.
    Will use a band around knees to attempt to focus position.
    Will report on types and frequency of feels in next post.

    Day 47

    Did No Gi and intro MMA class.
    Have realized I'm probably better off in the next level up.
    Will need to change my changing schedule to learn fundamentals.
    Current coach has a good method of teaching, next level coaches are also next level fighters.
    Timing will be tight as I have a strict work timetable.
    Now plan on doing MMA to supplement No Gi until I can afford a Gi then No Gi can supplement Gi.
    Back is really creaky during course of the day, knee is also a bit rubbery, I think I've stretched a ligament so will have to wait it out.

    The Lols:
    Everyone drops nuts when senior instructors are at the school, young cunny wafts need to calm the farm and focus their bollos on being productive

    Day 2 bodyweight:
    Close grip chin ups (15-45sec rest between sets) 7,6,5,4,3,2,1,6,5,4,3,2,1,5,4,3,2,1,4,3, 2,1,2,1,1
    Dips on chin bar:
    5 of 8 (30-45sec rest between sets)

    2nd consecutive day of same regimen, all chins are full ROM, having to explode up toward end of sets, still no kip just arm/ shoulder movement, shoulders are little tense, confident that I can tack on an 8 to the next group of chins or reduce rest period between sets, have taken day 3 off, will lift or bag work on day 4

    Previously had the idea of counting sessions as day 1 lift and day 1 bodyweight etc, am now counting days within 90 day period (3months aprox) will attempt 2 of every session type in a 7 day period

    Day four lift and chins

    Did workout at night, previous workout done in late afternoon with a day off between so body had adequate rest

    Warmup
    3*8 squats@40
    Work
    5*5 squats @60
    Warmup
    3*8 deads@60
    Work
    5*8 deads@80

    As soon as the last set of Deads was done also did descending chins, I probable only had a 20-30second rest between 'sets'
    Close grip chin ups 7,6,5,4,3,2,1,6,5,4,3,2,1,5,4,3,2,1,4,3, 2,1, 3,2,1,2,1

    On the first and second set of 6 and 5 I could barely do the last rep, if I do chins like the above after deads again I will reduce the reps
    Did three 5 minute rounds on various bags after to warm down arms and back then biked 4.5km home

    Notes
    Squat form is fairly poor, lean too far forward, may do squats with same weight next weight session but use a box
    Bag work felt good, all punches felt stronger, three and two punch combinations, no kicking and minimal knees

    Shoulders and lower back a little achy on day 5, will go for jog and skip tonight and do some light movement, maybe some fifth limb bridging and air squats, need to squat squat squat SQUAT, did not push so maybe do some press ups

    General gym bollox

    Nerdy ass hat stood behind me with a sooky look on his face after I did my first warm-up set, came and asked me how many more I had to which I replied lots and lots with big grin, nerdy ass hat asked wrong question, obviously doesn't want to share, nerdy ass hat visibly salty, when young giants in rack next to me finish nerdy ass hat uses their rack, does two sets and keeps peering over at me, try to focus on my shit, nerdy ass hat smirks as he lifts more, ass hat takes phone call after 1 more set, ass hat talks for longer than work.........

    Big motherfuckers look me up and down briefly, knowing nod, carry on with what they're doing....

    Hellashin sexy Olympic lifter in rack next to me, impressive lifting, wont stop talking, sexyomitor goes down, easily distracted, need to meditate more..........

    So I went to the gym on Day 26 at peak hour..
    Fuckin' never again.....
    The level on the douche richter was so high and all the squat racks were full.
    Another guy walked in at the same time as me and let out a sigh lolol.
    All the kinds of people I dont like were also there.....as in...there were people there.

    As the place was packed I took an old bar outside, there were numbers on the old steel plates which added up to 100, it didn't really feel like 100kg though, more like 100 pounds lolol (45kg).

    I used it to practice my dead-lifts: 1 of 14, 3 of 12, 3 of 8 with as little rest as possible
    Forearms got a pump lol, was nice to give the back and hips a stretch as well after a weeks lay off.

    I also used a little heel lift ramp to do some air squats while I did some loose rounds on the bag, I definitely have some hearty butt-wink at the bottom, not an issue with no weight but would def fuck my back otherwise.
    Have read somewhere that goblets will help solve this.
    Cant get ass to grass without heel lift as ankle mobility in right foot is Zero.
    Verdict is will just have to do more of all after bub goes to bed or before work.

    Took day 7 off, that's two days off in 7.

    Day 8 I did my body-weight bar workout, I reduced the rest period between sets to 25 seconds, I failed a couple of sets by 1, still no kip, kept form strict.

    Chins feel easier after dead-lifts, bounced off the bottom of a few reps of dips, can go from top of dip slowly through muscle up rom to a chin, will try singles of this at end of dips in next body-weight session.

    Shoulder width chins: 7,6,5,4,3,2,1,6,5,4,3,2,1,5,4,3,2,1,4,3, 2,1, 3,2,1,2,1.
    5 sets of 8 dips with 25 second rest between sets.

    Day 29

    Box squat 1*8*40, 3*8*60, 5*5*70
    Squat 2*8*60
    Trap bar dead 2*8 w 60 on bar
    Dead 2*2*100, 3*1*120

    Chins 6,5,4,3,2,1,5,4,3,2,1,4,3,2,1
    Three rounds on heavy bag to warm down

    Squats felt ok, knees are a little achy next day, also hypered my left doing a teep on the heavy bag way outside my range, get a lower box next session then look to removing all together

    Tempo on box squats was 2/1/1, safety squat bar looks like the business when I get to the stage where I can move a bit more, for now I need to stay disciplined with my form, try and get the core toit toit toit, inner monologue of cues etc.....etc.....lifting when it's quiet helps, cant stand the white (****y) noise in the room

    Singles of deads was fun, used mixed grip, will try and do doubles next session, then also try double overhand grip, Trap bar felt like horseshit, will try and avoid as handles are outside my shoulders and felt full retard

    UGH!

    Day 9 I did my body-weight workout again

    I changed it slightly and did fewer reps on the chins but completed them all with strict form and no kip:
    6,5,4,3,2,1,5,4,3,2,1,4,3,2,1,2,1
    I also only took a 20 sec rest between sets

    Dips
    3 of 10, 2 of 8

    25 sec rest between sets

    2 sets of dip descend to chin = 3 dip-descend-3 chin

    Notes

    I'm going work toward getting rid of the smaller numbers in my chins IE the two's and one's and try and get the next routine more like:
    7,6,5,4,3,6,5,4,3,5,4,3,4,3
    I'll try take the same rest period and then increase the higher reps again and get rid of the smaller numbers:
    8,7,6,5,4,7,6,5,4,6,5,4,5,4
    And so on and so forth until I get to 12 as my top end after which I'll have to add weight or increase difficulty

    Also, I'm going to increase the reps in my dips, once I get to 12*5 I'll have to increase difficulty
    Adding the 'dip to chin' exercise at the end will help with muscle ups, these aren't a strict part of the routine yet

    Dips on chin bar 8*5, did step ups on left in rest, descended slowly as poss

    Had day 10 off, day 11 I did some intense bag followed by some Squats and Deadlifts:

    2*3min skip w 1min rest=shadow and dynamic stretch
    8*3min bag: mostly punch combinations, 30sec rests

    Box squat 5*8 of 40kg
    Deadlifts 1*10 of 50, 3*8 of 60, 2*5 of 90, 2*1 of 120

    Foam roll at home

    Notes:
    Can keep up a good pace of hard punching in bag work, cardio possibly increased from daily cycle

    Need to squat a bit heavier, todays squats were more a 'warmup for deads

    Am confident that i'll work up to singles of 160 and maybe more with deadlifts at some stage

    Had 31 off,
    Mrs has quit the shitty commercial gym she was at, turned the Garage into an exercise studio, did some dynamic stretching and air squats and press ups and and and and and....
    Have been wearing a sleeve on my knee for a few days now, kinda feels fucked, will see what happens when I put weight on it...........
    Have been using my grippers more too, hopefully I can hold my deads for doubles on Sunday...

    Day 12, felt a bit achy:
    Went to the gym with the intention of doing some light movement and did a few easy bag rounds, dynamic stretching of hip flexors between rounds, hips feel quite tight mounting and dismounting bicycle.
    Lower back is making a few minor noises, will need to be more disciplined about stretching as I haven't been.
    Gym idiot: Novice boxer part of a class insistent on being passive aggressive, making running commentary on everything and making Bruce Lee noises when I kick bag, entire group discuss where they are going to eat after his coach let him know he was paying.......yawn.
    Considering boxing class to (light) spar, they have good coaches and I can always learn something new although I imagine there will be a few partners who tell me my stance is too square etc, If I do join will try be a sponge, am not keen on the social aspect as workout times are limited-need to get home to mama and spend quality time with son.

    Late night sessions are also very enjoyable, bag area is empty so no distractions, most lifters in late or very early hours are intensely focused which is a good influence.

    Today is day 13 will lift after work or when sonny Jim goes to bed, tomorrow is a public holiday as well so I should have adequate rest, can also do body weight workout wherever there's a bar and not miss time with family.

    Did day 6 lifts with a few kg added and a few warmup reps removed:

    Box Squat warm up 3*8 @40 (half body weight)
    Box Squat work 5*5 @70 (87.5%)


    My squat was fairly crap, I probably need to squat the above weight for a couple more weeks at least

    Dead lift warm up 3*8 @80 (body weight)
    Dead lift work 4*5 @100 (125%)
    Last set of Dead lifts did 3 then starting losing grip, reset on 4 and 5 slightly then pulled again


    I haven't been using my grippers at all for the last two weeks so this will be a contributing factor.....lol

    I used a mixed grip for my heavier deads on day 11, double overhand for my deads on day 13
    While the mixed grip feels more secure it also makes my arms feel awkward, I'll be using double overhand as often as possible from now on.
    I now focus on keeping my shoulders over the bar, flexing my lats back and dragging the bar as close is possible up my leg, past the shin etc.
    Need to focus more on the 'pushing the earth away'
    My back is bit 'creaky' as well, will have to take my stretching as seriously as possible and stay at my current weight for another week I think, will also have to get to gym when it's dead as I'm too sensitive and there are too many attention seeking ****s.

    Gym tard: A dude rocks up as close to my set up as possible and starts flexing, takes his jacket off, looks me up and down and starts playing with his hair, I'm at the end of my deadlift session so feeling kind of like I need to lie down, I grunt slightly at the end of each pull, old mate starts pulling 20's down and grunts when I do.......smirks at me ;) old mate does one set of squats and rips his belt off triumphantly, puts his jacket back on and strides to other side of the room.........good looking teen girl walks up to the box I was using, decides she ain't moving it...ask if she would like help, sez she's okay.....exchange polite smiles..old mate spys her out from the other side of the room, jacket comes back off and furious flexing resumes....young chook doesn't know he exists..exchange polite smiles..limp over to bags to warm down

    Day 32

    Had a red bull before the gym, hadnt eaten anything signif since about 3pm, went to gym at 9pm, felt fucked halfway through workout, fatigued, fucked, fucktigued

    Started 3 rounds floor to ceiling bag/ball.....sloppy sloppy sloppy
    Too much sugar and no sweet to the science

    Did a couple of double rounds working 1's and 2's with power on the heavy, using slight angles, then 3 single rounds working punch integrity..........lolol

    Moved onto box squats which were clumsy, knee feels squishy, core felt like an eggshell

    Numbers are as follows
    3*8@60
    2*8@70
    3*5@80 tempo a bit weird, 2-3 down, sat on box then 1 up
    1*10@60

    Would have been happier if I'd managed 5*5@80...that's the next lift...lifted more than previous, think tiredness def contributed to rubbery core feeling, and shifting sands in the joints...can't all be good days...

    Day 14

    Did a body weight workout of sorts, failed miserably, might have something to do with the last one I did was a week ago, wasn't happy but still did some work:
    Chins: 7,6,5,4,3,7,6,failed 5 did 4,3,failed 6 did 4,3 - 25 sec rest
    Dips on bar: 4*10,2*7 - 30 sec rest
    Dips to chin: 3*3 - 30 sec rest
    Bike home with my tail between my legs - damn you bar, damn you to hell

    It's pissing down in Melbourne today, supposed to be the same tomorrow - might try and find an inside to work out in

    Bodyweight


    Warmed up with
    6 of 3*3 dip to chin- 35 sec rest - used to do deadlift ROM

    Then did chins with air-squats in 'rest', had heel on elevated surface, focused on holding at the bottom then exploding through heel.
    Also focused on putting chin purposefully on top of bar for chins
    Chins are in white text, squats are in blue text.

    Day 18
    Lift weights
    Squat
    (box) focus on descending slowly and exploding up 2/1/1.
    2*12@40
    2*10@60
    5*5@80 - got interrupted and threw me off, fuck I hate people.
    2*10@40

    Dead lift
    2*8@60
    5*5@90
    2*1@120 - mixed grip on first, felt easy could have done 2's, did second with double overs and lost grip, need to work on grips.

    Did a few chins - 6,5,4,3,5,4,3,2,4,3,2,1.
    Warmed down on double end bag, tried to roll my back and let out a few squeaks of 'phhhuuuuuc'!! Also stretched at home after bike.

    Notes

    Will have to do more ancillary work on non lifting days.
    Feel my 5*5 squats are easier with a good ramp/warm up-can probably start on 60, go to 80, then 60, then 40.
    Probably need more days between lifting days, also enjoying more volume, every lifting expert agrees volume is the path to growth and big = strong.
    Bigger breakfasts will be a must, will be waking up earlier to cook for the household.

    Day 40
    Felt pretty good about my squats on Day 38 , I might try and stay with those numbers for a couple of weeks for walume type lifting.
    Have done sweet Fack all in the last two days.
    My back is feeling stiff and is super creaky, might start sleeping on the floor/yoga mat.
    My knee is also still fairly wobbly, varicose in back of knee are being little swollen shitheads, have been wearing a sleeve which offers some relief.
    Hopefully no gi class tonight will have some warm up drills that will help me ease into moving on the mat.

    My mood is mud today because........problems
    Hopefully my ego stays at the door this arvo

    Day 20

    Taking more rest days as back is making significant creaking noises and family time is getting more rad, have set up mats, Swiss balls and rollers in garage and will 5th limb and stretch everyday, have been rolling back consistently but it is tight as auld fuckery, not painful, just toit toit toit, especially after bike

    Minnie me will be hanging out with his old man tonight so that's two consecutive days off, will try a couple hundred press-ups in as few sets as possible just for a challenge/fun

    Day 49
    I haven't squatted in near to two weeks, Jits is going well and have started learning some dynamic movement.
    There's open mat at the gym tonight so will do some solo drills, hopefully roll No Go then do a body weight session.

    Today is 52
    My no gi on 49 went well, rolled with another novice for around 3/4 hour, did some spazzy subs then tried working out of bad positions
    Body was achy as shit for the next two days, I've had infected mat burn and one of my varicose is extra pumpy.....little bugger, disappointing that I haven't lifted myself or any iron

    No Iron since 44 which is over a week ago, it looked like:

    Deads
    2*8@70
    2*3@120
    3*1@150
    Bent over db row:
    3*8@32.5 e arm.
    Chins:
    5-1,4-1,3-1,2-1,1 =35 w 5sec rests.

    And no squats since day 38!!!

    Box Squat
    1*10@40
    2*8@60
    3*3@90
    2*10@60
    1*12@40
    Deadlift
    8*3@100

    So my goal is to now get back to the above over the next fortnight as No Gi classes are limited during the xmas period
    I'll do solo BJJ drills to warm up and down
    I'll try and do some bodyweight exercises today
