2013- New year, new log, new goals. And chapters! Like a story book, but dumbed down a bit.


Chapters:
Chapter 1: Fixing my shit (page 1)
Chapter 2: Unleashening of the Beast (Also, fixing my shit some more) (page 5)
Chapter 3: Broseidon, God of the Brocean (page 12)
Chapter 4: Fuck you, cardio


Chapter One: Fixing my shit

Goal at the moment is to improve overall shoulder health, while still not neglecting strength training that I can actually do. Going to start working in some basic prehab exercises for rotator cuffs a few times a week, in an effort to not have to take time off training again.

I also aim to get some better running shoes soon, so that I can actually enjoy going for a run without having to worry about getting blisters again.

I'll be keeping track of my weight from day to day as well, making it easier to decide what to do and what not to do when I'm leading up to a fight. Last thing I want is to accept a 66 kilo match-up and find that somehow my bodyweight has gone up to 75 kilos.

Anyway, I feel like deadlifting. Updates to come later.

What is a (wednesday: ) Warrior challenge?
 
Heavy conditioning workout, just a name for them that Ross Enamait uses.
 
Okay, now you compete with pro rules in muaythai?
 
I fight under what's termed "amateur" rules here- 3 x 2-minute rounds, no elbows, but knees to the head and body, kicks, punches and clinching are all allowed. No headgear, no shinpads, and either 8 or 10oz gloves, depending on your fight weight.

Edit: I would like to have a full-rules fight at some stage though, possibly by the end of the year.
 
New day, new log. good luck, Kiwi.

Okay good luck in your next fight. Gonna keep reading this log to motivate myself, really need it, running a marathon later this year and i am one lazy bastard :icon_chee
 
Good luck with new log and goals, dude
 
I predict that Belph's log sequel will fail to achieve the success of the original, and everyone will then look to your new log.

Best of luck with huge, jacked, injury free shoulders.
 
I give you a tonne of credit for wanting to do a fight with elbows. That separates the men from the boys for sure. Best of luck with your training.
 
Thanks everybody. This year I plan to kick much more ass than last year, including my own. And Tosa, I doubt my log will ever be a match for belph- he's just too much of a stud.


19/01/2013:


Prehab:

A few sets of external rotations with 2.5kg dumbbells, 15 reps each side, 1 set standing and 1 set lying down. After that, a nice gentle set of rotations standing up with arms out at 90 degrees to the body, 20 reps each side. All nice, slow, controlled motions. Pretty tiring actually, but didn't aggravate my shoulders at all.


Muay Thai:

Warmed up with a couple of rounds of skipping, testing the shoulders out. After that, eased into sparring with a round of 2-hit, then 3-hit, then 4-hit. After that went 3-4 rounds of normal sparring, followed by a short break, then 3 more rounds of sparring. Ended when I had my testicles kicked up into my body (no cup today).
After that was some pad work. I held Thai pads for 3 rounds for my partner, then he held a focus mitt and a kick shield for me for 2 rounds. Holding pads, as well as hitting them is a bit shit still, but nowhere near as bad as it was a few days ago, which is why I decided to focus on leg kicks today. I'd love to look like a bigger, whiter version or Pornsanae in the ring one day.

I won't accept that kind of talk from you. I expect that from Vegans and dems, but not you. You're better than that.

Well that's just impossible, but we all have dreams, I suppose.

How many curls did your log have for the last workout? I think it's clear who won this round.

I can't lawg my curlz. If the Russians got ahold of the set/rep scheme, my god. The USA wouldn't stand a chance.

Does it stand a chance now? And even if you not logging your curls is for the good of the free world, it still doesn't count towards your log winning. It's a sacrifice you'll have to make.

Then I'll win with monster and gifs. Lots of Fucking gifs and monster.

I'll out-Monster you too. Had one today when I was deathlifting, and also one yesterday before MT. Yesterday was lo-carb, today I needed a bit of a sugar hit.
