    there's not going to be anything too ground breaking in this log. the theme will be 'modesty'.

    I've been doing a push/pull/squat routine for about 1 1/2 years, w/ a 6 month hiatus which i spent in a dormed police academy.

    Lifting is not my priority. I've been in BJJ for just over 6 years and lift to supplement that. I used to be very into muay thai, but with my new job I just don't have the time so i'm very rarely there. (maybe 1x/week).

    At most, i'll be lifting 3 days/ week.

    I welcome any and all feedback on anything you see here, and thank you for it. Its this forum that converted me from curl monkey status....i never knew i was doing anything wrong!

    I signed up at 'St. Wilhelms' but consider myself a 'prospective' member until i can meet some type of goal.

    my routine is as follows: ALL 5x5

    PUSH:

    bench (usually flat, dumbells if i have no spotter)

    push press (but i did do OHP instead for the first time last week and will probably alternate)

    dips (weighted of courst)

    PULL:

    deadlifts

    bent over rows

    chin/pull ups (weighted)

    SQUAT:
    back

    front

    over head


    ---

    on each training day, i will usually add some other exercise. EX: dumbell snatch, and various other olympic type lifts (i don'tknow the proper names, but along the lines of cleans, jerks, that kind of stuff.

    popped a rib today training jiu jitsu. its a higher one, i don't know if thats better or worse, but i popped a low one a few years ago and it took FOREVER to heal.

    i should have lifted before rolling... i don't want to risk it by doing anything else today, but if it doesn't hurt i'm going to go full speed tomorrow.

    good luck, and god bless.

    popped rib felt good enough to try out today.

    did an hour at muay thai, and did all the ab exercises to prob. hit the weight room afterward to test it again. very easy workout.

    3 sets each of back and front squats w/ light weight and
    2 sets of one arm dumbell snatches

    back to BJJ tomorrow, maybe i can roll. going to the weight room first though.

    have a splendid night.

    still babying the rib a little and didnt wake up in time for BJJ this morning, and at night i went to see one of the ladies from my boxing school whip some ass and make it to the golden glove finals.

    i decided to go get some work in after.

    i was sore from last night, so to loosen up i started w/ 2mile jog

    then:
    2 sets--bulgarian split squats--25lb dumbells
    3 sets--OHP--95-115lbsat the end of each set when i fatigued, i would bang out a few push presses
    3 sets alternating 5chins 5 dips--BW
    3 sets box step ups w/ the bar on my back--135lbs
    3 farmer carries- 30 yards- 50lb dumbells
    2 more sets bulgarian squats-30lb dumbells
    2 more sets alternating chins/dips--BW

    was really more of a conditioning workout, i don't want to rush the rib but i feel like i can start doing most of the heavy lifts again.

    i'm still concerned for OHS, and DL's but i'll start light and play by ear.

    started my new hobby.....bending junk. last night i bent a 16d nail and this morning 2 12d nails to about 1.5in. took me a while, definitely didn't get it in the 30 sec limit and not in one shot either.

    my achy rib kept me out of the open mat this morning, but i'll rep some technique tomorrow hopefully.

    went to the weight room though....

    i also started sledgehammer levering earlier in the day. i have a 1/4"x6" steel bolt that i would like to bend. i've been using a towel to grip, but am going to find some leather.

    have a super day
