    This log is mostly for me to log down my strength and conditioning work. I probably won't log in my BJJ sessions most of the time but I may here and there.
    Goals:
    Improve my skills and technique in BJJ (#1 Priority)
    Become more "functionally strong", become more athletic, and more conditioned.
    In other words, this summer I'm trying to become an athletic manlet monster.
    Age: 18
    Weight: 140
    Height: 5'5-5'6
    Experience in BJJ: Around 6 months (2-stripe white)
    Experience in Lifting: Around 2.5 years but stopped lifting around 10 months ago. Looking to start it up again to get stronger for BJJ and to improve my body composition. I went from 110-160 pounds in those 2.5 years. Once I stopped and started BJJ, I'm down to 140. I would list my old maxes but they aren't anywhere near my maxes anymore and it would just make me really depressed.

    So here's pretty much the basic schedule of my week. It might change a little in July when my work schedule changes but it shouldn't be by much:

    Monday- Morning BJJ

    Tuesday- Strength Session A-1/A-2 - Core

    Wednesday- Rest or BJJ

    Thursday-
    Morning BJJ

    Friday- BJJ or Rest

    Saturday- Strength Session B-1/B-2 - Core

    Sunday- Conditioning


    Strength: A-1
    Deadlifts 3x5
    SOHP 3x5
    Weighted Towel Chin-Ups 3x5

    Strength: A-2
    Front Squats 3x5
    Floor Press 3x5
    BB Rows 3x5

    Strength: B-1
    DB Clean and Press 5x3
    Plyometric Pushups 4x10 / DB Rows 4x8
    One Legged Squats 4x8 / SLDL 4x8

    Strength: B-2
    DB Snatch
    DB OHP 3x5/ Weighted Towel Chinups 3x as many
    Sandbag Shoulders 3x8 / Sandbag Squat Jumps 3x10



    The conditioning after my BJJ sessions are probably going to be lighter while the ones on Sunday will probably be a lot more intense. Conditioning can be anything from GPP, Warrior Challenges, Density Training, Intervals, Tabatas, etc.

    NOTE: I'm not going to be doing everything the first week, I need to ease into everything and the sandbag workouts might not be the same since I'm still waiting for my outer bag to come in !

    Pretty much drilled some transitions for an hour.
    -Armbar, triangle, armbar (leg over the shoulder rather than under)
    -Armbar, Omoplata, Armbar
    -Up and over, kimura, guillotine.

    Then rolled for another hour and a half.

    What's up man, always nice to see another lightweight. Nice routine you got. And what do you mean by "finisher" on mondays and thursdays?

    Thanks bro, it's good to see that I'm not the only lightweight here.. It seems like everyone on this board is over 200 pounds..
    A finisher is simply one last movement before your strenuous session ends. It is used to increase mental toughness and work capacity. It kind of simulates going through the fatigue for one more round and force you to just suck it up.

    Because of Memorial Day and the BJJ school being closed, I decided to do Max Strength today..

    Front Squats - 85x5, 85x5, 85x5
    Floor Press- 60x5, 60x5, 60x5
    Pendlay Rows- 105x5, 105x5, 115x5

    Ab Circuit.

    Was kind of in a rush, my front squats are pitiful.. It's not my leg strength that's holding me back but my wrists. For some reason, after I clean the weight, as I go down, my wrists suffer some pain.

    I wish I could do that but I don't have a rack to be able to position my arms to the bodybuilding variation.

    Round 1:
    1- 20 75lb Sandbag shoulders
    2- 10 Burpees
    3- 10 Pushups
    4- 10 55lb BB Clean and Press
    5- 20 Lateral Jumps

    Round 2:
    1- 20 75lb Sandbag Shoulders
    2- 10 Burpees
    3- 10 Pushups
    4- 10 65lb BB Clean and Press
    5- 20 Lateral Jumps

    Round 3:
    1- 12 75lb Sandbag Shoulders
    2- 10 Burpees
    3- 10 Pushups
    4- 8 65lb BB Clean and Press
    5- 20 Lateral Jumps

    Round 4:
    1- 8 75lb Sandbag Shoulders
    2- 10 Burpees
    3- 10 Pushups
    4- 8 65lb BB Clean and Press
    5- 20 Lateral Jumps.

    and then extreme pain.. I took extended rest times between rounds since my body wasn't used to this. It one hundred percent kicked my ass.. Now my den is covered in a pool of sweat.. Right afterwards, I jumped into a cold/hot shower intervals. I wanted this to be hard since it was the only thing physical I was doing today. The sandbag shoulders really drain and wreck you.

    EDIT: WOW, no wonder I was sucking wind after the sandbag shoulders. I took a second look at my sandbag and looked at the side where I keep the extra bags of sandweights and one was missing and I realized I left it in the bag after I made it. So the bag was ACTUALLY 75 pounds rather than 50... Kind of makes me happy in a sick way :)

    I will no longer be doing the "B Explosive" Strength workouts. This is simply because I got ahead of myself and thought that explosive workouts would be the most beneficial to me but my maxes aren't nearly what they used to be and I'm not moving around enough weight to be able to benefit from dynamic effort/explosive work so I will be going back to a max strength phase to simply bring back up my numbers so it is pretty much the same routine as in the FAQ.
    So it will more or less look like this:

    Strength A
    Deadlift 3x5
    Overhead Press 3x5
    Weighted Towel pullup/chinup 3x5


    Strength B

    Front Squats 3x5
    Floor Press 3x5
    Pendlay Rows 3x5

    Any of these may be substituted with a sandbag variation.

    Are you doing front squats because you don't have a Power Rack or Squat Rack?

    Yes, I don't have a power rack and simply don't have the room for it. I also don't feel safe doing back squats without some sort of safety catch as I used to go to the gym and do them in the power rack regularly and there were times where the safety catches really saved my ass during heavy loads. Plus, I don't have the loot for one.

    Deadlift- 145x5, 155x5, 160x5
    Standing OHP- 105x5, 105x5, 110x5
    Towel Chinups- BWx8, BWx7, BWx7


    Some dips and curls for girls

    3 Rounds of Ab Circuit:
    Rollouts on Knees
    Variety of Crunches
    Leg Raises

    Comments: Suprisiingly I did pretty well in this workout. My lower back was suffering severely from DOMS and I pretty much got out of bed, did a few jumping jacks and stuff and started the workout. Deadlifts at first felt really bad cause of my lower back but I did extra warm up sets to get the blood flowing and everything warm. Standing OHP felt strong, I can definitely get 115 or 120 next time. Chinups consistently increased also.

    Rest, Rest, Rest.. I think I may permanently move my rest day from Friday to Wednesday. It makes the most sense to me since like this, it doesn't interfere with my BJJ as much as if my rest day is on Friday.
