    Old log



    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f49/log-midmo-980552/

    I have spent the last several days thinking about what to name this log or whether I should even keep a public log. I've found that a cool name for your log is probably the most important thing to keeping a the most important thing to keeping a log(check). Something catchy that makes people want to read.

    What you actually do is probably third or fourth in importantance behind the name of course, how many people post in it, and maybe how much you can lift when you start. s probably third or fourth in importantance behind the name of course, how many people post in it, and maybe how much you people post in it, and maybe how much you can lift when you start. Well I'm going stick with convential wisdom here and give my log a catchy name, but am I not going to post in it everyday, I wil am I not going to post in it everyday, I will probably lie about how much I'm benching just because this is the interent and I can. Maybe some people will post here offering curses and a little support. Maybe some people will even post here offering support. Since not everyone who reads this will know anything about me let me first say I am super good looking and rich(this is for the ladies) I work crazy hours and may in fact be a little off myself I set out last August to become stronger.

    With good intentions in hand I headed off to the gym and quickly realized I actually know little about strength trianing. I also know very little about a lot of other things know very little about a lot of other things as well, which I think we will discover as this log goes along. Back in August after reading a whole lot of logs here on Sherdog I decided the first thing I should do is set some short and long term goals.


    So I set these goals. I'm not really sure why I picked these but here they are.

    Bench my weight for sets(at that time 215lb sh)
    Be able to DB press 100lb DB x3
    Reduce my bodyfat to 15% or below(at the time 23%)

    By October I realized what I was doing(random weightlifting and cardio) wasn't doing anything for me. So I started to look into a Starting Strength type program. So I re-did my short goals to met some new challenges and broke them down into both short term(3 to 4 months) and long term(1 year) The short term goals were
    Combined Big Three of 650lbs(DL, Bench and Squat)
    315 Deadlift
    275 Squat
    245 Bench
    (numbers picked at random to be honest I just thought they sounded good)

    Long term
    Combined Big Three of 900lbs
    405 Deadlift
    315 Squat
    275 Bench or 225 x 10(these goals were hese goals were also picked at random and also cause their even plate numbers)

    So much for how I started. Later the first several months....... Goals as of 08/23/09
    Bench 275 Dead
    405 Squat 345
    PC/Press 185
    DB PC/Press 100
    Bodyfat 12%
    With a long term goal of 1100.

    Goals 2010
    Bench 315
    Squat 405
    Dead 495
    year end total 1200
    clean and press/jerk/snatch a 100lb DB

    415x3x3
    315x8

    Changed my warm up to include some zercher squats to see how they felt. The rack positon of a front squat is irritating my shoulder and this adaptation seemed to make sense. Deads were fairly quick and felt light. Grip was a bit weak towards the end.

    skipped last night so I went before work this morning


    decline bench
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    245x5
    265x3
    225x10

    bench
    135x10
    185x5
    225x7x3

    dips
    bwx12x3
    w
    drag curls
    70x10x3

    no real notes other than I'm down to one upper session a week that is half assed and still fighting some shoulder/bicep pain. The declined is pain free as are the curls. Flat bench is problematic. Assume the issue is the shoulder itself. Haven't tried anything overhead in awhile. Might go squat tonight and see what some ohp feels like.



    Night
    135x3x3

    Only thing hard today was the rows. Nice easy squats as my knees felt creaky having not done anything this week so far. Farmer's were an afterthought for my grip since its been wonky the last few weeks. Bench finishes my 275s, will be resetting at 285*1*4-5 next session. Will also reset rows but not sure to where.

    Dropped my car at the gym and got out my kestral which i havent ridden in a month. Started down the hill and it felt like it was falling apart. Stopped and found rear tire soft. Walked it back to the car and found the lock nuts on the presta valve was loose.

    I use double overhand up to about 315 and then switch grip. Most sets right under although i try to do some left under as well. Hook grip ive just never forced myself to do. My grip is hit and miss though and somedays its the last issue and somedays the first. So when its really noticable i note it but dont track other circumstances that may be the cause. I use to do some specific grip work but now only do static holds while deadlifting and farmer's walks when i do those.

    Bike
    5 miles
    Ran through town after work.
    Hit moving speeds of 19-20 mph but splits were closer to 15.5 due to stops and turns. Course was basically flat. Cant get air to stay in either tube. Not a scuff of the tires and im leaking 15-20psi in 3 days. Dark is coming earlier and i turned around probably a bit early just to be safe. Should of put another 5 on.

    There are road events in columbia mo wjere they request an 18mph speed over 30-40 miles. Not sure how you get there. I have the euipment to do it. Just not the gas tank.

    Most of this ride was in 2(big front gear) and 2/3/4. Trying to shift it like a race car in cornering may not be the most effective way of doing things. I didnt wreck and my clips were issue free. I moved the left one on the shoe and it seems to have made a differnece

    Changed my warm ups and included goblet squats which ive never done. Then actually felt pretty good and set up for a single north of 100% threw wraps on at 385. Did a shitty job tucking them and right one popped coming up. Then i realized i didnt remember to lever my belt over. 385 moved pretty easy but i stopped there. Did some triples after. Threw wraps back on my last set and they feel like they deload 50# off the bar. This time i did a better job tucking them.

    notes:


    I spent much of yesterday trying to figure out the mystery of the deflating tires. It turns out that bike tubes when ran at the kind of pressures required 85psi+ for small width tires just deflate. The pressure stretches the rubber used in the tube and molecules of air pass through the gaps created. As the pressure drops the loss drops and around 30psi it stops. So basically the Google told me that you just fill them up every ride. Which means I'll need a better pump than the one I have which is just a small size portable emergency pump that handles both valve types but is very low out put but can handle high psi.

    Since I was already learning about tires I also read in several studies that narrow tires do not have in many cases the least rolling resistance which is counter to what you would think. When the weight on the tire and the pressure in the tire are the same a 23c tire may actually have more resistance than an a 25c or 27c at the same pressure. This is cause because at for example 85psi(bottom end of my range) the tire deforms at the ground level and there for becomes less round. The contact patch becomes longer which increase the resistance. With a wider tire 25/27 the contact patch ban become wider and so the tire stays more round so to speak. but it you increase pressure to 125 in the 23c tire and leave the 25 at 85 the extra pressure reduces the deformation of the tire and it has less rolling resistance.

    The tread pattern has some effect on overall speed but not enough for me to worry about. And is so condition specific that I'm sure some French colleges offer degrees in bike tire selection.

    Since I was already knee deep in bicycle studies I also read some on aero and how to make increases in your average speed on rides. Something as simple as wearing a loose t shirt compared to a tight bike jersey or shirtless can actually cost you 1kPH(COMMUNIST MEASURING UNIT WARNING). Riding up on the bars instead of down with elbows tucked 2-3 KpH. Which for casual riding means nothing I just found interesting. Air resistance against the riders body is actually the highest resistance factor on a flat surface. Of course gravity(they used some fancy word) resistance on a hill is larger. The drive train resistance is just a tiny part of any drag on the bike and although my set up is about as drag free in that category it can be there are still some gains just to be made in the bike tech category.

    The discussed strategies for increasing your split times such as limiting braking and excelling through and out of corners when possible which I'm familiar with through auto racing. Most programs for increasing speed involved short bursts of speed and recovery(like running) and then following up with time trials on a fixed course monthly. Their recommendation for competition riding was to be doing 8/3 of the race's total mileage each week. So for a 20k race your minimum mileage should be 160k. I'm no where near that even for trail rides. Info on in race calories was fairly consistent at 400 per hour depending on race length and body size.

    Squat notes.

    I hadnt actually planned to do anywhere near that weight or volume. Ive been working back towards a more volum based plan but each time i do i have noticed some doscomfort and swelling in my repaired knee after. So ive been working towards a heavish single and then basing what i did on how i felt after that.

    Everything up to the 395 was quick. Although my face looked like it was about to explode at times. 395 was plenty quick but it felt a ton on my back to the point it was compressively painful. Dropped the weight down which was now feather light by comparision and finished out. Threw some 455 pick ups into the mix to try to help w the mental hurdle of it feeling heavy.

    Then i got a second wind and broke out some farmer's walks which made my forearms look like giant veiny hard ons.

    Grabbed some shrugs for yoke thickness and still feeling froggy hit some medium weight trap bar deads with straps cause i had no grip left at all.

    Only the 395 was done with an actually tight belt. Everything else was either open or first notch closed.

    The biking stuff is incredibly complex. In the last year I've learned more than I ever wanted to on what is and what isn't acceptable. When you start talking competitive bikers they are an odd bunch. Everything from their shoes to the shape of their seat post is subject to heated debate. This is before you even get to training methods. Its a lot like NASCAR where a bit of tape won or lost the race.

    I don't ever see myself wanting to compete in cycling. Its too much of a time and money investment and although I enjoy riding I don't think the events look like much fun. There are trail rides and group rides that I might enjoy but the road rides request a average 18mph speed which I'm no where close to even on my best days.

    Locally we have Moutain Biking races, Crits(think formula one on bikes, closed course over and over in a given time), distance events(50 and 100 miles seem most popular) and Cyclocross which is half bike race half Mud Run. This doesn't include trail rides, charity rides or Bi and triathlons and even some endurance events of hundreds of miles for time Tour De France Style.

    Good solid lifts today. Went in with my left hip killing me early in. Worked through it and smashed the first 465. Then struggled w the second. Would have like the 3rd but it wasnt gonna be there. 315 felt light for the 5s and the sldl about killed me.

    Bike
    8 miles
    Hit some 16-17mph splits in town which is rolling. Had crazy ass winds helping and hurting me though. My spinergy wheels are a bitch in a heavy crosswind. I had read they were almost as bad as solid disks(never rode them) but crosswind really pushes the bike from the bottom. Its hard to describe but it feels like the bike is being pulled out from under you if you're out of the saddle and will blow you 3-4' in the lane if youre not careful.

    Also for several splits i ran in only one gear and varied my effort and rpm to match grade and traffic. This was a strategy to increase overall speed i read about. Ran 2/2 during those times.

    Although in the past I would have used the following article as an excuse to post bbw's for several pages I just find it interesting that this issue exists in Brazil. I could have understood if they had to make the bottoms smaller to fit dat ass.

    Last night
    BJJ
    2 hours


    I haven't been putting in any mat time recently and for some reason I felt like going last night. I always worry about getting crushed by cardio when I haven't been on the mats for awhile and starting warm ups with 5 burpees plus 5 sprints x 5 was more than I really wanted to do after dead lifts. Finished in the middle of the group but didn't push too hard.



    First technique of the night was from the suplex postion standing. The tie up was seatbelted from the rear. Pretty simple start to a kimura two on one for the front man on the under arm of the back. Key points were an elbow lift and knife handing past coupled with a positional hip drop. A step out was then used to rip the grip free. The front man now took the kimura he was holding and used it as he rolled through onto his shoulder to throw his opponent. Added in was a butterfly with the inside leg for lift. Kind of complex for my taste when you've already accomplished the main task of clearing the grip and your hips.


    The second technique was a half guard kimura set up. This was pretty basic with the down player setting a kimura then creating the room for replacing his half to half butterfly and using both along with a sit up as a sweep up and over. Only it was taught as a one handed kimura using the other hand to base on the mat and come completely up. I use a one handed kimura a lot so this was fairly natural for me. The transition to putting in the butterfly was a bit awkard for me but switching it to a scissor seemed a better transition for me personally.



    Sparring was 7 minute rounds. I did better than I thought I would cardio wise but played a heavy lazy top/bottom game, and used a lot of heavy pressure to stay where I wanted. Started rounds and all stops with them on my back or me simply belly down. Working my way to the top was normally through basing up and slowly eating space or turning into them until I wanted the sweep or transition. Worked several ankle picks from dogfight position, and what subs were thrown up I felt and defended or baited them to the sweep. Doing things at the pace I was playing and stalling them into my game I managed to get through 4 rounds without much trouble.


    The first round I spent a bit more time in the transitions and was using a knee shield from half and matching his movement on top to stay there. Grip was strong enough to control with so deadlifting and farmers walks haven't let me down.
