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.
