Best of luck man.
Welcome to the logs. Good luck and keep it up!
In order for us to really help you here we are going to need pics of gunz, quadz, and calvz. Without knowing specifics through pics I can tell you that curls will help the development of all three of these muscles as well as general health and well being.
Joking aside, I really will be keeping up with your log and wish you the best in reaching your goals, even though it seems like you migh be Brittish. As long as you don't log in kilograms you are good in my book.
What sort of idiot does that??
Log it in stones, my good man.
You'll see! Kilograms are the only unit that makes any real sense!
The weight will drop off with all that exercise, just stay consistent!
Thanks for the replies guys.
I taken it easy over the week end, just being icing my left bicep and doing some posture exercises.
I have been doing some posterior chain exercises, which I really need to improve. They are by Foundation Training by Dr Eric Goodman - Building A Strong, Enduring, and Flexible Posterior Chain.
These exercises and links to video, and other info on the Posterior Chain can be found here.
I have MMA grappling session tonight, and chiropractor tomorrow. Need to dial in my eating, time to shift this fat.
Where do you train MMA if you don't mind my asking?
I agree. But definitely glad to see attention being paid to the calves, possibly the second most athletic of all the muscle groups.
Edit- but seriously, good luck, TS.
Foundation Training. 22/01/2013
I received the "Foundation Training" book today, by Eric Goodman. I have started the 6 week program today, which will be along my MMA. I will be doing it 3 days a week. Its to help sort my posture out and strengthen my core.
Repeat sequence 3 times.
1: The Founder
2: Back Extension x 15
3: Adductor-Assisted Back Extension 10-20 sec
4: Child Pose/Kneeling Founder
5: Lunge Stretch 20 sec per side
Rotator cuff 12-15 reps, 1 cycle.
1: Internal rotations
2: External rotations
3: 45/45 lift
4: 1-arm band pulls
I worked up quite a sweat an this, and can really feel my posture chain muscles working.My back feels very week, looking forward to strengthening it with this, before I move on to any S&C workouts.
I didn't train striking tonight on the advice of my chiropractor, its throwing punches that tend to cause the pain. I will how ever be going to wresting tomorrow, which I'm really looking forward to. Just hoping I can get through it pain free.
That is my aim at the moment, being pain free after training sessions. Then I know Ill be ready to up and add more training sessions.
Also watched first episode TUF 17 today, which has really got me pumped up for training!
Always nice to see somebody else getting started or restarted. I'm your age and hoping to get a chance to compete in MMA at least one more time, although even just getting back to regular training in BJJ or karate would be nice. Will be good to see ya progressing.
Thanks for dropping by. I'm the same, I would really love to compete, but just really happy to be training regularly at the moment!
Have you had any MMA fights in the past?
Wresting Session - 24/01/2013
Great session last night. We warmed up with about 5 min running around the mats, with different movements like high knees, side steps ect.
Then we some bear crawls, duck walks, duck walks with step offs, 3 x lengths of the gym of each.
3 min round of chest sparring
Arm pulls 2 variations.
Penetration step to double leg.
Single leg drills
Single leg, to forklift grip, arm around back to hip, kick out their leg while lifting up and slam.
Single leg, to forklift grip, arm around back to hip, kick out their leg and trip and roll.
Single leg, pass to to back hand, front hand around knee, and drive that direction.
We got in grouped based on weight.
Then is was winner stay on, with one person trying a single leg take-down and the other defending it.
Then second round was, one in turtle position trying to not be pinned, and trying to get away.
Both were 5min rounds.
If don't wanna say that's cool I guess. Think I know where you train anyway. Timetable sounds similar to somewhere I know.
Could be wrong though lol.
Been slacking a little with my log, but trying was going good, having pain free sessions until last week!
After Wednesday training session calf felt a little tight, next morning could just about walk on it. So didn't train any more that week, just lots of foam rolling, stretching and icing.
Anyway back at it last night, we did escapes from mount, elbows escape and trap and roll to half guard. Then some rolling from mount position, 4 rounds, changing partners after 2 rounds.
Hi mate,. Where are you from?
