Tuesday's Workout

A2G Squats: 5x5 @ 285
BB Bench: 5x5 @ 235
JS Rows: [1x5] @ 165, 170, 175, 180, 185
Ez Curl Bar Skullcrushers: 3x8 @ 80

Abs: 20 min. class

PM Training: 3 hours MMA

Couldn't lift on Monday because I was at work till 2:00 AM trying to get stuff done for my dead lines. So I'm going to workout on Thursday and Saturday will be light KettleBell work which is always fun.

Right before I lifted my girlfriend asked me if I wanted to take an "Abs class" with her so I figured, "What the hell, I need to work on abs and it would be a nice change of pace." I'm hooked, it was a great class and it was hard to do a lot of the different balancing exercises to use the core stabilizers. This will be great for squat and deads.
My numbers are ok to say the least. My strength didn't all go away from not being consistent with my workouts the past month and the massive amount of cardio and plyometrics I do at MMA classes which brings me to my next topic.

For the DF 5x5, when you are on the 5x5 cycle, they have you do front squats to start off the 2nd day of the workout. Now this workout regiment is very taxing alone and with my doing this on top of Training, I do TONS of leg work, plyometric exercises: zig-zag jumping, squats for time, squat jumps, squat kicks, lunges, mountain climber, the list goes on. This worries me that I might over train my legs because in the past, when I've tried to do this at the same time I started Training more, my legs seem to give out quicker. So I might scale down the weight and sets first and see how I respond. If anything I might take it out completely. Well see what happens this week and next week.
Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, Today is a Gift, Thats why it's called the Present.
