Chunky BJJ Log

So Story is this, figured I read everything on this site everyday so figured I should put my training up for the masses to judge !!! plus add alittle accountability and motivational things like that to the mix.

Brief History -

Long term failing martial artist and strength wanna be -

I have been training on and off for ther last 3 yrs doing alot of strength/conditioning work with Will heffernan while he was in Ireland, so I’m a Jim Wendler and Dan John groupie at this stage too. I tore my left bicep just before and damaged my back and frayed the nerve in my left leg doing a box squat so training hasnt been great or regular in the last year so I have followed the rehab and physio’s treatment protocals and its time to get back at it.

Numbers -

5’ 10"
153Kg (was 117kg)

1RM -
Bench - 133Kg (down from 150kg)
Squat - 160Kg (down from 240kg)
Deadlift - 100kg** cant accurately test that yet with the back and leg but using Jim’s 1rm from 5/3/1 its approx this.

The Plan is this

Diet -
Porridge for breakfast then no carbs for the day
Ton of veg
180-220grams of protein a day depending on training

** I’ll give a better account of this later

Basically keep it clean and veggie with healthy fats and alot of meat :slight_smile: (i usually stress this to the point i never start so this seems to be simple enough that its working and easy to stick to)

Going to do Body measurements tonight so will update that tonight
