    Lurking for a while, new poster. This is my 3rd time starting up mma training (hopefully a charm) and I've joined a real gym with real classes this time. Not new to lifting, currently work as a private strength coach. Pretty happy with my max numbers. I'm between "advanced" and "elite" on all categories here for my gender (female) and weight class (132) so I've been experimenting with my training and am currently on a super-high rep plan (50 reps) and it's been pretty fun.

    I keep a strength log over at t-nation but I was hoping joining these boards would help keep me honest in the non-strength aspects of my training. I just started taking bjj so I'm trying to get in the habit of going regularly. Hopefully I'll learn some things here and maybe offer what I know as well! That's about it for now.

    Best of luck in your MMA training!

    Were you planning to post (repost?) your strength training here as well?

    Finally, some more estrogen in this forum.

    I'll help you get started with the BJJ if you help me with my lifting. :redface:

    Good luck with your training and remember...

    women + rage = power!

    Stonebreaker: Thanks! Sure, I'll re-post my training if it'll let me link out to my log. Here was today's lift. Remember I'm experimenting with a very high rep program right now. Bobbi Skai's Training Log: L!MELIGHT (Muscular Endurance) Upper 2

    Witchcraft: I was looking around for other women's logs. How many are on here? And I'd be happy to make that trade ;)

    There's no active logs that I know of. There are a few women that used to post before my time....Lena, BlondeWarrior and Tami I think? All strong ladies!

    Didn't go to bjj this week. Trying to figure out my chest issues. If I don't feel up to it I'll at least go and watch next week.

    Today's lift

    Highlight: Sumo deadlift 50x95 - 50 reps of anything is rough!

    My posts keep getting held up, I assume because I link out to my log. Will this happen forever or is it just because I'm new?

    I remember that happening to me when I first joined, especially if I was adding links/videos.

    Bench 10x45/65, 3x95, 115x1/1 felt pretty easy, good bar speed, then 50x50 with some racking/rest pause if you want to call it that. Resting for 3-4 seconds.

    Assist pull up 50x"78" - the level of assist

    DB bench 35x15/8/8

    Allllright! Had a great day pulling deads and then pulled myself a bit..eek! Full story on the log Bobbi Skai's Training Log: SSwk1dl

    I know 195 for dubs isn't stellar but for not pulling heavy in 6+ months I'm not angry about it. Just trying to give myself a bit of cushion to come back strong.

    Nice job. I've never heard of "Lexen" deads before. Is that what the pause in the middle is for??

    Yea, they are just pause pulls. If your sticking point is below the knee they're good for getting through it.
