    No Gi drilling 1 hr

    No live tonight. Wanted to get home to get to a wrestling tournament. Started a meal plan of sorts on Sunday. Higher protien, moderate carbs, lower/moderate fat, around 1900-2000 calories a day. Nothing very strenuous. I dropped 5 pounds this week. Saturdays is cheat day and I'm going to stick with this plan till it stops working. Planning on a tournament January 28th if the guy gives us a deal on price for taking so many people. If not may have to wait until February.

    Went and watched Penn State Wrestling smash West Virginia. Also went and saw the High School team win our season opening tournament that we host. Finally back on track after some tough years.

    Little tuff of a workout. The "diet" is I think the culprit. Weight is down a bit. I still feel pretty good. After tracking everything for over a week I seem to be right around 45% protein, 35% carbs, and 20% fat. Not too bad. I'm getting close to 200 grams of protein every day. I'd like to get closer to 50/30/20, but the weights coming off so I'm not changing anything until I hit a wall. I have got my new workout ready to go and am deciding on when to implement it. I am not sure whether to do it next cycle or wait one more. I'd like to do a little more, but until I have some mat space I'll have to make due with the current plan. Gi on Thursday and DL on Friday, Gi and No-Gi on Saturday.

    Pretty good workout. Gi and No Gi tomorrow. I think I am going to try and Bench Sunday. I have a meeting after school and then I want to try and do a Thai workout after. That would free me up to go to wrestling practice at the HS and work with a few of our kids.
    Bodyweight was down to 191.6 last night after practice. Cheat day tomorrow.

    After Practice yesterday I decided to switch my workout around a little earlier than I had planned. That's what accounted for the drop off in poundages on the accessory stuff. This is a pretty different workout than people are used to. I got it from Martin Rooney's work on lactic acid training, he calls it a hurricane workout. I modified it to adapt to my needs. For me it is my primary form of conditioning, at least for grappling. It gives me the most bang for the buck in terms of time spent vs results. I am still going to run the 5-3-1 movement to start and one assistance movement every workout, but all the accessory stuff will be in this form. It has served me well in the past so I think it will also now.

    Here are a few of his examples:



    Maybe if anybody is interested I'll tape one of mine and put it up in a few weeks. (I have to get back in some shape first!!!)

    I'll start ramping up a tenth or two mph every workout and add in 15 seconds until I get to 6:00 rounds, about the length of a match. I m way out of shape. Squats and a light Thai workout tomorrow, jits Thursday, and military on Friday.

    Weight workout slipping a tad bit. Might have been an off day, but I think it is the weight loss. I'm going to see where the bodyweight is this weekend and decide what to do from there. I think I can keep making progress once I get it where I want and I up the conditioning a bit and get in better shape.

    Not bad for having a small hangover to start. Bodyweight 191.0 after practice. Getting used to the Gi and actually using it some. I still can't get the chokes to work perfectly, but I can get them tight enough to use them to set up my sweeps.

    Got to go with a Renzo Gracie purple belt in from Chicago. Guy was tuff. I passed his guard with a butterfly pass, but he got my lapel from side and I had to address that and he put me back in half guard and eventually swept with it. Wish I had guys like that on a regular basis to roll with. I still need to get used to thinking about the Gi. I get moving and forget and the next thing I know they've got my lapel and I have to defend it. No Gi is so much easier. Haha.

    Not bad, particularly on the DL's. I also worked on better cleans with the axle. I had planned on broad jumps for this day, but there simply isn't enough room in the new gym for them. Went to coach wrestling afterwards. Won our home meet pretty convincingly. Still had a lot of mistakes to work on. Gi and no Gi today.
    Weight is going down again after the holidays, 190.4 Thursday after rolling.

    Weighed out today at 188.4. Today was a cheat day and had BBQ chicken and ribs with fries and iced tea. Feeling good and actually moving well. Found out that our instructor at the home gym basically said I'm testing for blue in may. I don't know? I still don't have all this gi stuff down and I don't think he knows I only have one stripe. We shall see. I feel like I'm only one good bump in the head away from wearing a helmet and riding the short bus to school when I'm wearing the Gi.

    Not bad at all. Squats and DL's still climbing well even though the bodyweight is coming down. Had a home match tonight and beat a local ri-val tonight on criterion, and we did it with two starters out with Ringworm. Gi tomorrow and Friday I'm going to try and get to wrestling practice and actually workout instead of just coach. I may try and hit upper body tomorrow also so i am off Friday to get to practice.

    Conditioning is going well. Finally hit a wall on bench. I got 12 full cycles in so I consider it a success to get that far. I think it is mostly due to the weight cut, so I'm pretty happy. I didn't seem to fall off too much just more a case of progress halting. I am resetting my maxes on both bench and OHP and starting over. Squat and DL are still going strong so I'm sticking with the current progressions. Gi tonight. Anxious to see what my weight is.
