    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.

    Good workout, except conditioning is in the toilet already. For any of you grapplers, the gym I train at is putting on a small tournament in June.

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. Cycle #4

    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.

  16. how often do you train BJJ?
    BJJ = life

  17. Usually three days a week, but I haven't trained in 2 months because we are moving. I'm scheduled to start teaching no Gi on Saturdays again 2nd week of may, and I plan on having my new place up and running by the first of June. I'll probably do some extra training once summer comes. I'm moving a lot closer to the two gyms I go to, so I'm planning on getting some extra rolling in, especially in the Gi.

  18. teaching, thats awesome bro! how many years have you trained/what belt?

    I started NHB back in the late 90's but it was pretty much on our own, garage type, there was nowhere to train back then. I fought and stuff for a few years but did pretty mediocre. I couldn't get the training I needed to compete on the level I was at. Gave it up in 2001 and went into lifting. Got sucked back in in around 2006 with real instructors.
    I don't have a BJJ belt, I have a purple in Combat Sambo from my old instructor, he's a Gokor guy who is also with Llyod Irvin. He gave me belts based on competition performance and by the time he left I was able to win at the advanced level in competition. I only teach the no-gi and it's with an MMA flavor. I'm gonna start working some Gi this summer, I want to try and get a Blue belt in BJJ before I'm too old and broken down. The BB at our mother school said he'd start me at white with 2 stripes because of my no-gi training. I've done pretty well in no-gi competition since I started it. I'm a little worried about the gi. I envision myself hog tied with my own belt and being forced to scream uncle like Flick from A Christmas Story.

  20. hahaha at first thats how it feels but you get used to it very quickly. i actually feel more comfortable in GI, you never get any mat burn. plus the grip benefits are tremendous. about 80% of my submissions in the gi are with the gi itself, its that useful.

    Going to go real slow on the cleans. I have been doing DB Cleans for conditioning for a long time but I haven't cleaned a bar in a long time. Had two friends fighting Thai last night. One guy had an exhibition because his guy was 15lbs over weight. Yes, 15 lbs. As a coach I would have beat the **** out of him at they weigh ins if he was my guy. I don't think there is an excuse to be over at all, but 15lbs.??? I wouldn't let him fight for a long time. That reflects on you as a coach and your team as a whole. Our guy looked good in the exhibition. Our other guy won a very convincing decision on a solid performance.

    Off until at least Monday, maybe Wednesday. This weekend is moving day. I'm not sure when I'll have internet access in the new house, so not sure how often I will be updating for a bit. Hopefully I can do some from my phone.

  24. Still off from working out. I was hoping to get back tomorrow but I just spent two hours trying to get the gym organized and it hardly seems like I made a dent. May be another two or three days. On the plus side I did get my 25 lb bumper plates and the new log bar in. Hoping to try it out next week on OHP day.
