    I will use this journal as a tool to motivate myself to become healthier and improve all aspects of my life.

    My stats
    5"10
    206.6
    Body fat in upper teens

    Bjj purple belt

    Heart rate in the 70's.

    Cholesterol 230

    Age 36

    My upper body is stronger than my lower body ( I was the moron who only benched and did biceps)

    Goals are to:

    Get weight down to 185 pounds by eating cleaner, and more importantly eating less at night.

    Continue to improve at bjj

    Get heart rate in lower 60's by doing cardio (add sprints when you get to this level)

    Will lift heavy 2 days a week

    Day 1
    Squat 3x5
    Bench3x5
    Deadlift 1x5

    Day 2
    Squat 3x5
    Press 3x5
    Cleans 5x3

    Will post all my work outs here in this log including bjj,strength and cardio work outs.

    Welcome to the logs, and good luck!

    I am 39, and early in the year I found out that my HR had crept up to 80 or so. I started doing conditioning a lot more and last time I checked it was pretty much bang on 60. Helped me get my weight down, and also ended up with me really enjoying running, pretty much for the first time in my life. Couldn't be happier about having gone through the process.


    Anyway, will be following your progress.

    Welcome to the logs.

    What's your lineage?(you don't have to feel like you have to answer that if you want to discuss training without people knowing exactly where you are)

    Very disappointed in myself today! Got to bed late last night, and overslept! Didn't attend bjj class. Am here at work and will review some techniques on You Tube! Will look for sweeps from leg lasso!

    1 hour of low intensity cardio on treadmill. My cardio is already getting better, and I feel like my resting heart rate is already lower. I was never a cardio guy but am really starting to like it.

    Sorry not to reply before now. I did incline treadmill walks for a month or so. The started running. Tried to do it three times a week, slowly increasing the time and distance. Always slow. Did this for about 6 months then started adding some faster stuff.

    Glad to see you are starting to like it.

    I was hoping to hit a strength work out yesterday, but my neck was hurting way too much! I have had this problem for a while, and may hit a strength work out later tonight if the pain gets better.

    Have not been to bjj in 3 weeks, will wait till my neck gets better.

    Today I hit a cardio work out. Did 20 minutes on treadmill and 23 minutes on stair stepper. My legs are going to be sore tomorrow from stair stepper. My cardio wasn't good today ( it maybe because I ate a little too much)

    I am very heavy right now and weighed 204.8 after my work out. That is way too heavy and I need to get on a diet ASAP!

    Not happy with my work out today. On a brighter note my neck is starting to feel better and I will look to get back to bjj soon!

    Very happy with this workout. My squat form is getting better and increased the poundage by 10 instead of 5. I am very glad that I did. I suspect I will be moving up 5 pounds every workout for the next month!

    Very happy with my strength, not very happy with not going to bjj. Wil look to go back on Monday. In the mean time every thing is going great!
