    this is my second attempt to keep a workout log, since the first one suffered a slow and painful death as i gradually stopped strength training.

    my goals are simple: deadlift at least once a week. i actually plan to do 2 full body workouts a week, aiming to hit a pulling, pushing, and squatting motion in each workout...but at the absolute minimum i will get my ass to the gym and deadlift. i have no goals in terms of numbers, i just want to improve from week to week and hopefully feel the improvement while grappling.

    i've been training bjj consistently for about 2 years now, and i'm currently training like a maniac - 5-6 days a week, sometimes twice a day will be my schedule until may. i'm working towards my purple belt, and will be competing in gi and no gi competitions in march and may. so i'll be logging conditioning and training stuff as well.

    regarding weight, i could stand to lose the beer gut i've been working on since thanksgiving, but im not against putting on muscle and having to move up a weight class - i'm currently 5'9" and 175 lbs. this isnt too important to me, so im just gonna try to clean up my diet, keep grappling and deadlifting and see where it takes me.

    first entry
    1/18/06

    incline barbell bench (pretty f'in close to shoulder press):
    warmup 95 x12
    5x115, 5x135, 5x155, 5x175, 4x175

    stiff leg deads:
    warmup 10x135
    shit i forget....something like 5x155, 5x175, 5x185, 5x205, 5x205

    also, wrist roller - 2 times up and down with a 10
    tossing 25 plate hand to hand (20 throws, 3 sets)
    pinching 2 10's for time (about 45 seconds, 2 times)

    * we have stupid ass plates at our school that are covered with a sheet of plastic and get really slippery with sweat.

    +stretching and drilling some jiu jitsu movements.

    days like this i wonder why i train...

    i went in late and missed the instruction but just wanted to roll anyway. first i got brutalized by a dieslel guy with about 40 pounds on me. my neck was sore as fuck from the past week, and he kept on putting on brutal neck cranks (no gi, so its legit)....anyway, i trained with him for about 20 minutes, then got a little sick and tired of getting my neck ripped around and decided to roll light with some people i know arent wildmen on the mats - no hard feelings or anything, i just knew i didnt want to train that hard. it was a good thought, but it didnt do me any good. after about 45 more minutes of rolling i had to stop. the tendons in my elbos, shoulders, and my right knee were so inflamed, sore, and painful that i couldnt do shit. i've trained everyday this week so far (6) and twice a day on 3 of those days for a total of about 18-20 hard hours on the mat...which is way too much...imma go eat some food, smoke a bowl, pop like 6 advil, and sleep on the couch all day.

    2/1

    christ...i've done a lot of jiu jitsu since last time but only 1 lifting session a coule days ago

    from memory (probably all fucked up)

    bench: worked up to a 2 rep max at 225 - i went much to hard on the earlier sets, almost failing, and had noting left to max out....pretty silly idea and bad numbers to back it up.
    swiss ball db shoulder press: a couple of sets w/ 35 lb db's - reps around 8,7,6
    started to do squats, but when i got over 135 lbs on the bar, my knee felt like shit...jits is tearing me up.
    ghr: 15, 15, 15

    tabata's w/ pushups, squats, then burpees....almost made my workout partner puke again, ha! my gas is feeling good, which is shocking for a vicious stoner like me.

    gonna start working on handstands to do handstand pushups...i checked out the crossfit site a couple days ago and im really interested intrying some of their shit out.

    its a week later and ive gained most of my range of motion back. the only thing that is absolutely murder on my rib is trying to do a straight sit up.

    anyway, did a light squat workout yesterday, 2/16. squats, and some sissy isolation leg stuff - the injury prevents me from doing front squats/overhead squats/etc b/c i can't stabilize myself without pain.
