Well Vegas was awesome. Lost a little bit of money and gained a little bit of weight but not as much as I thought for either.

Yesterday I went to Muay Thai and Sub. Wrestling for a total of 2.5 hours. I have to say the weight I put on in Vegas came right off, well it was mostly water weight but regardless it still felt good.

On a side note, I talked to the head instructor and he wanted to catch up and know what my goals are in the future. I told him I wanted to do MMA and he seemed very happy with that. He told me that at my skill level I could do very well starting out and he would want me in the gym more. He also said he could have me in my first MMA fight by the end of the year. But want's me to do more grappling competitions to get the rust out. To tell you the truth, I'm excited and a nerves at the same time. So we shall see what happens.

Wednesday's Workout



KB rounds: A round is considered 1 minute of a 35lbs. KB exercise or other and ends with Jumping Rope for a minute, with a minute rest after each pair.

Double KB Snatches, JR
Double KB Swings, JR
KB Alternating Shoulder press, JR
KB Walking Lunges, JR
Jump Squats, JR
KB Renegade Rows, JR
Pushups, JR (rested an extra minute after this one)
Double KB Cleans with a punch unload, JR (maybe did 5 with each arm)
Single KB Swings, JR
Single KB Squats, JR



OVERVIEW
This was very tiring and after I was done I laid on the floor for about 5 minutes just to catch my breath. As you can see at the end I was losing gas and had to switch to single KB work. I want to make this kind of workout more of a staple in my weekly routine. The modified 5x5 that I was doing before I jacked my back up, will be starting next week. I'm also doing Yoga this weekend so that will help my hips and shoulders tremendously.

Friday's Workout


BB Bench: 5x5 @ 185, 195, 205, 215, 225

Suitcase Deads: 2x5 @ 135

Pullups: 3x5
Super setted with
Band High pulls: 3x5 Black

DB Suitcase Walks: 2 set at 60 ft. @ 100lbs.
DB Clean and Walk: 2 set at 60 ft. @ 100lbs.

Abs:
Crunches 4x20
Leg lifts 3x10 @ 12lbs
KB pass in-between legs 2x10 at 8lbs.
Side to side Medicine ball crunches 3x10 @ 12lbs.


OVERVIEW
I felt like goofing around and trying something new. The suitcase dead are very hard, mostly trying to find the center of the bar and not making it tip forward or back when lifting. Then I did the DB walk first carrying it and then I got tired of the Db hitting me in the leg so I opted to clean it and walk with it that way. That was very tiring. Workout was good and I was thinking about getting back into something a little more routine but we'll see. Still working on core stuff and trying to get everything back up to par. Muay Thai on Saturday.

Weekend Workout

Saturday
Muay Thai: 1 hour

Sunday
Yoga: (gentle and restorative) 1 hour


OVERVIEW
Well Muay Thai class was killer, and by that I mean I got my back all jacked up.... AGAIN!.. Yeah I have NO idea how but I was a very hard class and afterwards I had problems moving. I wanted to do the Judo class but I just couldn't. I also have a burse on my thigh that is the size of my hand and very purple. So I said to myself, "Now I HAVE to go to yoga."
So I went to yoga today and it was very relaxing. I made sure to take the gentle and restorative class, That was the name of the class. It worked a little. My shoulder feels good but my lower back is still very tight. I might go to yoga on Monday or just stretch. I'll have to see how I feel in the morning and what my work schedule is like.

Thanks. I think I have a trake record of sprinting before I can even walk. I just get excited about training and think I can start where I left off. Yeah, we all the the end of that story.

I'm doing a little better. Bought some Tiger Balm and it is feeling awesome right now.

"Ahh, it burns.... That means it's working.

Tuesday's Workout


BJJ: 1 hour
Sub. Wrestling: 1 hour


OVERVIEW
I know I'm sounding like a broken records but I tweaked my back a little.... yes again. I was feeling good in BJJ and was sparring well. Then I get to Sub. Wrestling and I've feeling very good. Started sparring and did a guard escape that takes a little bit more agility than most and I felt great so I said hell with it... yeah... bad move. Didn't even get the move right because I of my mobility and my back being tight already. Well, I'm taking a week off, not because I have to, I just want to make sure I'm better, and will be back at it next Tuesday. I don't know what I was thinking... I was just excited that I was feeling better. See you next week.
