This will be a bit different for me as over the past few months I feel like I finally fixed my recent apathy with fitness by getting back into grappling but virtually stopped lifting. This log will be the chronicle of a 30 something washed up meat head and ex wrestler as I go from disgruntled weightlifter and BJJ white belt, to someone who can hold on to the vestiges of athletic youth by lifting weights and choking out people in pajamas.
Age: 32(for a few more weeks at least)
BJJ Rank: White Belt - No Stripes(35 hours of mat time)
For the last month and a half since finding BJJ, I have hardly been lifting and put in around 35 hours on the mat. Working on trying to scale that back to 3x a week average and back into the iron with a nice balance.
Short term goals: Get my first two stripes so I can attend some of the classes that are more competition focused. Get back to lifting 2-3x a week. Get down to about 170.
Going to drop my TM’s aggressively and work back nice and slow, not really sure how I will program my training, but this month is mainly about just putting in the sessions without burning out on the mat and under the iron.
