    Shoulder was still crappy, but a lot better. Box squats are going to take some time to get used to again, but I can tell my hips are already thanking me for it I'm not going to push them too much for some time, so I should be able to work on form and technique for a while. I'd like to get back to free squatting at some point. Gi drilling tomorrow, no live.

  4. Saturday 10/20/12

    Gi drilling only 1 hour

    I decided that I'm taking off the next 10 days from everything. No gym, no grappling, no conditioning. I've also pretty much decided to sit out this next tournament. My shoulder is healing up and I don't want to mess with it and I think I'm just overtrained and a little burnt out. I went a lot harder than I planned this year. A tourney or two turned into 5 and a half dozen matches turned out to be closer to 20. I'm away for a long weekend coming up and I'm gonna eat, drink lots of beer, and get ready for my next training phase over wrestling. I'm hoping to blow up to around 210 so I can trim down in the spring and be a full size light-heavy (190-195 for BJJ usually).
    Also I think my mind needs the break as much as my body. I'll be back next Tuesday for my first weight room session back. I was only 2 workouts into my cycle so I think I'm gonna start the cycle over again when I get back. See you in a week. Peace.

    Not a bad workout. I wish the hips would loosen up. I really feel pretty strong but the tendinitis is still holding me back. On a positive note my shoulder is feeling close to 80-85% today. Hopefully another week and I'll be good to go.
    Wrestling starts in a week so things may get a little spotty, especially when matches start rolling around.

    Not a bad workout. Shoulder was feeling it a little bit but not too bad. It's still nice and strong. I think it's on the mend so I'm going to keep nursing it along. I have new mini bands coming, so I think My number may drop a bit next week. My current pair was on the verge of snapping during my workout.

    First really good workout back. Knees were a little stiff but worked fine. Been a while since I squatted with chains. Felt fast. Weight was a little low though I think. Finally using weight on GHR's. a whole quarter of a pound. Parent conferences next to nights so I'm off until Friday. Working a meet Sunday. If anybody wants to see good, drug free and raw powerlifting in central PA check out the ADAU Central PA Open in Bigler PA. Right off I-80 near clearfield. Afterwards try the 2,3,6,or 15 pound burgers at Denny's Bear Barrel Pub.

    Not bad workouts. Box squats are coming along, but it's going to take a while. Shoulder is still improving slowly.
    Meet went very well but was mega long. Saw what was perhaps the most impressive thing I've ever seen in powerlifting on Sunday. We had a 19 year old do a legit depth 750 squat. It was pretty crazy. I've seen bigger squats before. I watched Beetle Lowe smoke 960 and come up with 1006 ( 3 reds, I was one of them), and I saw Victor Kennedy do a 949 back around 1992 or so, but they were equipped meets and both guys were over 300, especially Kennedy. But this kid, with a high, fast talking voice was a 275'er. If you looked at him in Jeans you wouldn't even know he lifted. He looked like a high school lineman, nothing special at all. He opened at 705 and I was figuring it was some knucklehead who was going to 1/4 squat and bomb out. He took 705 decended slowly to depth and exploded out so fast he shot into the racks and got 3 reds. 2nd he did the same thing but kept his footing and got 3 whites. I was a believer real fast. 750 he smoked easy with his head down a tad. He took 805 for a 4th record attempt and missed it about 3 inches out if the hole. He only benched like 285, but then DL 705 although he should have been red lighted for it, he got it up. I've seen a lot of very impressive lifts, but this is probably the tops of the list.


    Here is his 705, check out the depth and speed.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pushdowns and face pulls, 3sets

    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.

    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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.
