    Squats going well. Back is feeling good and getting stronger. Really working on Squeezing upper back and it is really helping.
    Signing the agreement on my new house tomorrow. I am hoping to get permission to get into the garage and start renovating the upstairs so I can get to rolling. Downstairs gym is gonna be easier to start, just getting a 8 or so stall mats. Found out yesterday that I actually have 4 - 5x6 foot chunks of mats I originally bought for wall mats. Thought I only had two. Going to be able to put some down in the weight room for some of the stuff I do. It's nice to not to have to lie down on a cold floor to do stuff.

    Josh - not sure where you are but a guy down by Gettysburg Pa sells them for like $800 if you pick them up yourself. Otherwise shipping is a killer.

    Once you get the details pm me the info. I missed the Millville tourney and haven't been to BJJ class in about 2 weeks. Hopefully I will be able to make it this week. Definitely send me those details I'll go

  7. They work nice. I have the 2" versions, but we needed the thicker stuff because we were doing takedowns and stuff and we were on a concrete floor. You will love them. You can also add same size pieces as you need.

  8. yeah i got an upstairs bedroom so i wont be doing any takedowns. my roomates already expressed concern haha

    Skipped conditioning because I was running long and the wife wanted to workout. I'm gonna do a treadmill and bag workout tomorrow after work before I head out of town for the night. DL singles felt good, hook grip is holding up well so far. Had another 10% at least but I'm in no hurry yet. Going to skip deload one more time, but I am taking tomorrow off to go out for Some Guinness and stew. I will take a deload in the middle of the next cycle when I have to move to the new house.
    Got my 5/8 platemates and they didn't pack me two pairs only one. Trying to get that fixed. I'm thinking of ordering a stone mold from Slaters, maybe a 150Lb stone or so. Only a $100 and I can use it as many times as I want.

    Things are moving along well. Slow walking everything but feel good. Anxious to get the new gym up and running and get my conditioning going harder. Gonna break down and get a Prowler. The road behind the house is aching for me to push a prowler up and down it.

    Skipped conditioning, I'm getting sick. Things are feeling pretty good otherwise. Gonna get a Prowler as soon as I can. I think I could ramp up my squats with a little more of that type of conditioning. Off till Thursday, Gonna move some more stuff getting ready for the big move. I'm ready for spring!!!

  13. Don't know if your interested but I have a PDF of the plans of a prowler if any of your buddies weld. It will will prolly be waaay cheaper to make then to order and have shipped. That shipping fee is a killer

    Skipped conditioning again, still sick, but even if I wasn't I still couldn't do it. The gym is a mess. It's covered with Plastic bins and furniture getting ready to move and I had the garage door hardware put on yesterday and there is stuff everywhere. Probably not gonna do any conditioning until I get into the new gym and get it set up.

    Fet like **** and was just gonna Squat and DL and then bail, but I felt better and better as I went so I kept going.
    Made a mace to swing, like a scottish hammer. Did one set with 10 pounds and could already feel it. Gonna add it in on Upper days, but start at like 2 1/2 lbs till I get the hang of it.

    Old clip of me doing some real easy pad-work week leading up to my last fight. Looking forward to getting in shape again and rolling as soon as we are in the new house and the new gym.

    Got 4 Stall Mats for the gym floor. Work Great, heavy as hell though. It was a workout getting them in and down. Getting antsy to get in shape and get on the mats again. This month has been the longest I've been away from Jits and fighting in about 6 years.
    Watched a former training partner make good last night on UFC fight night. Trained with Phil Davis when he was just starting out at Titan Fitness and with Lionheart Fight Team.

    Going out for man food. One pound burger and fries, maybe some wings too. Anton Not sure what they are. Probably pretty basic. I don't expect many people over blue, I think we'll get a few purples competing maybe one or two browns. We may even do Madison rules. This is our first foray into running a tournament. We are running it with help of our Pedro Sauer mother school in Pittsburgh. You can check them out here.

    I am going right into the next cycle. Got my moving date, 4/21/11 so I'm gonna deload that week. I should end the 3's week on the night before then I'm taken the Friday and Monday of Easter weekend off and then I'll deload the following Wednesday/Friday and get the gym set up, and then get back to the 5/3/1 week after that. From there out I'll probably deload just about every cycle.

  26. Cycle #3
    new working max numbers


    Calculated my estimated 1 rep maxes using Wendlers formula,

    Bench. 245
    Squat. 296
    Military. 176
    Deadlift. 328

    They all seem pretty close except the bench. I've always been way low on the percentages for bench for some reason. Just not a bencher I guess. It's probably a good 15-20 lbs. High on the bench estimate.

    Things seem to be going very well. I am warming up a ton on the first exercise and it is paying off. Pain in the ass, but paying off. Body is feeling good. Cut out the 3x15 after the main exercise and it feels good. Once I get the prowler I'll use it to start upping my work capacity.
    Pulled the trigger on a 10" log bar from Pit-bull today. Hopefully gonna get it in a few weeks.
