    Decent workout. Shoulder is still bothering me though. I have finally given in and abandoned my beloved chin up. My shoulder just couldn't deal with the internal rotation any more. Maybe someday I can get it back but for the time being it'll be Pulldowns only. Shame, it was my best and most useful exercise as far as grappling goes.

    Water was all over the gym so I had to ditch the log cleans and do snatches instead. I have to get it fixed somehow.

    Rotator reliever.

    Bit of a touch session. Shoulder was feeling it a bit. It's still plenty strong, I just haven't gotten stability back like I was thinking I would. I am considering dropping lateral raises and doing wind chime presses to see if that helps heal it some. I also need to use the rotator reliever more regularly. I've been slacking lately. Bodyweight is up to around 197. I am gaining some pudge, but I can tell there is also a decent bit of muscle growth. I'm sticking to the plan. PS/PH run as soon as wrestling is over and a SARM's recomp when PCT is done. I'd like to see 200 with around 12% bf. That'd be just fine for me.

  13. Saturday 12/21/12

    Standing calves 3sets.

    Pretty good workout. Had to go up a notch on the belt, I'm getting a little plump. As long as strength continues up I'm sticking with it. I'll do a SARM'S cut this spring. Bench on Monday and shoulder is feeling suspiciously better. Either a good or a bad sign.

    Had to make a change on the shoulders. Took out heavy laterals for light ones and put together my old, old combo of laterals and presses supersetted. Hopefully this will help the shoulder. Also ordering a everything I need for an h-drol run in the spring, tomorrow. Mr. Supps is having a 35% off sale and its too good to pass up. Only thing I'll need is a serm, probably clomid, and my SARM's and I'll be ready to go.

    That's all. I'm about half sick and the treadmill broke the other day so no lactic acid work until next week. I have a repair man from Sears coming to fix it next Saturday.

  17. Wednesday 1/2/13

    Hips, TKE's, cuff, dislocates
    DE Squats 2x8x45 2x45+ lights 2x95 2x115 8x2x137
    DL 1" mats 5x135 5x185 3x235 2x265 2x295 11x321

    That was it. I'm sick as crap.
    My progress for the year.

    Bench up about 10-15. I think it would have been a good bit more, probably double if it weren't for the shoulder injury. I'm guessing 240ish.

    Squats down probably 30 because I switched to box squats. Good news is the hips are a lot better. I think this will improve a fair bit once I get cranking on it. I'm guessing around 305-310 ish.

    Military I switched to bands, but it definitely increased despite the shoulder injury. Up 15-20, almost all before the injury, I'd say I could get 165 for a single even now.

    DL is up probably 30-40 pounds. Close to 365 I'd say. Moved well and finally found my groove.

    Log press is the only one I have exact comparisons I can use. It's up almost 20, again mostly before the injury.

    Bodyweight is also down for the year, although not by much. I had to cut from 205 for the meet last year and right now I'm sitting at around 195-197 depending on the day, so I'm pretty happy there.

  18. Overall for the year I'm pretty happy with my progress. It was a bit of a switch from last year though. Last year I exceeded my weight training goals but missed all my grappling goals because of circumstances around moving to a different town. This year I fell short of my weight room goals, mostly due to this year end injury, but far exceeded my grappling goals. For grappling I went 12-5. I only lost 2 bouts in my weight class though, 1 by stupidity because I was winning 5-0, and another by injury default when I pulled a trap/neck muscle. They others I lost I was in until the end or was winning and got horsed into something because of size differences, so I'm pretty content with my performance. The letdown with the injury at the end was ****ty, but in hoping to be rehabbed and ready to go when wrestling ends.

  19. Goals for this year:

    Bench 305 by formula and put up 260 for a single.
    Box Squat 400 by formula and put up 365 for a single.
    Military another 10 pounds by formula.
    DL 500 by formula and pull 395 for a single.
    Log add another 10 pounds.

    BW. After a spring recomp stay at under 200 consistently and be able to make 195 day of weigh-ins and as low as 185 for day before weigh-ins.

    Grappling. 10-0 in my weight and belt division. Win kumite again and win good fight this year. Enter purple somewhere and win at least 1 match. Win no gi absolute at the local show for the $250 cash prize.

    Decent workout but shoulder is not getting better. It's strong but feels loose and I have some pain after working out. I'm going to bite the bullet and make a doctors appointment and then see about a specialist. I have to get this fixed and under control or my grappling days are going to be over.

    Treadmill is fixed, sort of. Cost me $350 I didn't have and it isn't working very well. The speed won't set correctly and varies a little the whole time. I'll limp along with it until spring. I am starting to save for a new one this week.

    Decided to change squats to the SSB to help my shoulder heal. It actually feels better already. I'll be able to ramp up quick on them it feels like.

    Shoulder feeling much better the last two days. Looks like squatting with the SSB may be a long term thing. I think that may have been the problem. DL Friday and depending on how sore I am from skull crushers, I hope to bench Sunday again. I'm going to miss the weekend after next, including Friday because of a two day tournament so I'd like to get an extra two workouts in to keep me on track.

    Good workout. I've been feeling really good the last few days. Maybe because my shoulder isn't bothering me all the time, who knows, but I'll take it. Bodyweight is staying right at 199.0, so things are going well there.
    The wife started crossfit at my BJJ gym with my buddy. She really seems to like it. She's in pretty good shape already but this is a push mentally for her. She's a gifted physical athletes who was never pushed in anything so we should see what she's made of. I'm not a big CF fan, especially for men, but done with moderation and some corrective stuff added in, I think it would be good for women. They stay away from the high rep Olympic stuff at this place and that's about 2/3rd's of my problem with it so I'm hoping things go well. Next step is getting the daughter to do BJJ. She's an athlete like her mother, so I'd like her to build a tougher mind and some confidence physically.

    OK workout. Shoulder was not feeling good for some reason. Felt loose and unstable. Also operating on about 2 hours of sleep didn't help. Match tomorrow and then Squats Wednesday.

    Not bad. Gym was cold as hell, zero degrees when i went out. My cooler was frozen solid and even my gel filled med balls were frozen. They look like oblong eggs and are as hard as concrete. I brought them in and put them in the tub with hot water to thaw. They are starting to melt and aren't oblong anymore. My heavy bag must have a lot of water in it too because it's as hard as a brick too.

    Mediocre workout. I missed Friday because I was sick as ****, and I'm still kinda sick. On a positive note my shoulder is feeling a whole let better. Hopefully I'm finally on the mend with it, now onto fixing my left knee.

    That was it. I have decided I need a break and I need to look at my programming and make some changes with the knee problems. First is I'm taking 10 days off. I'm over trained and tired. Second I think my lower body workouts are going to change when I get back. The knees are just not having it. I'm thinking sled pulling and posterior chain work only. Nothing requiring a deep knee bend for a while. It's gonna blow, but at this point my options are slim. The third thing is a visit to the doctor. Then on to the orthopedist. I am almost certain the left knee is a torn meniscus. That's an easy fix. The other o e I thing is hurting because of compensating for the bad knee. I have to get this worked out if I want to keep grappling. The good news is that the shoulder is definitely on the mend. I'm gonna keep babying it a while and also keep up the rehab/prehab and I'm optimistic it will further improve. I'm going to take this time to push up my upper body strength to better levels that match my lower body more closely.

    Made a few decisions about training and my course of action. Started my hella run today. I'm going to ramp up my upper body strength while the knee is banged up and work on conditioning. My lower body workouts won't be treadmill style. I'm gonna sled pull, work my posterior chain hard, and that's it. My lower body strength has always outpaced my upper body so this will be a good opportunity to change that, at least for a while. I am waiting for an appointment to get the knee assessed, then hopefully a DO appointment by the end of April. The guy is super tough to get into see. He's one of the top 10 DO's in the world. Luckily he graduated from my school and my dad was actually his wrestling coach when he was little. He also did my dads shoulder and knee so I'm hoping for a little preferential treatment. Haha. I'm almost certain it's the meniscus. I'm gonna see the trainer tomorrow and ask him what he thinks.

    Easy day. Got me knee evaluated by the trainer. He did a McMurray test and he doesn't think it is torn. There was no clicking anywhere and he torqued it around pretty aggressively. He also tested the knee cap and did some laxity tests and they were all negative. His only idea was that I may have severely inflamed the fat pad between the bones. I'm still gonna get it checked but I hope he's right. That could be a big change in rehab time and methods.
    Shoulder was really sore and tired last night after lifting but this morning it felt really good. Not 100% mind you, but really, really good. I'm optimistic I've turned a corner on it.
    Diet is underway and going well. I'm a little under calories for this week by plan and the. I'm getting back to 2200-2500 a day. Heavy protein and a few extra carbs on upper body days, but nothing too drastic. Bodyweight was 201.0 today, so that's my jump off point. I'm going to take some pics for progress and curiosities sake this weekend and I'll post them up when this cycle is over.

    Pretty good workout. Hdrol is kicking in I believe. That's a PR on military for me since quitting MMA. I'd say its an all time PR at 200lbs. I put up 185 for 10 a bunch of years ago, but I weighed a tad under 230. Shoulder is improving, knee still sucks balls. Just got word that the doctor got my file, so I'm scheduling an appointment tomorrow. Hopefully in the next 2 weeks. I am having a real hard time not squatting and DL'ing.
