I am starting this here, for a few reasons.
The combat forum is great, but I am not longer
"training" for wrestling or Judo so I didn't want to hog up space there.
The Strength training forum is filled with Big Hosses...
and far to competitive and I'm not training for strength sports.
There are some HUGE hosses here too,
and you guys rock!
I wanted to starta log for the smaller lifters.
So here I am.
There are smaller lifters here right?
I'm 37 years old played Judo and wrestled in HS, and college
div III jr college then Div I and post college Greco.
got to play with the big big boys never won anything big
but stuck it out.
Basically Im not a kid and need to train in a more healthful fashion. with Injuries, Ice, and plenty of mobility work.
you can see my profile for the last 6 months of training.
if you like or care.
Live Born Raised work play NYC
I work in television lighting so work is interesting and physical.
deadlift 405 big PR for me just last week
squat 315, for 1 two weeks ago at out of town gym
bench 265 for 1
I really dont eat meat, just fish eggs, and dairy
I eat pretty healthy but some junk eating too.
Supplementation not really my thing
Fish oil some bromelain for joints and tendonitis
Post workout shake whey, and greens plus.
Sometimes I will do powdered BCAA and gatorade while training.
I just had my blood work done yesterday, and
my cholesterol is 153 WOO so thats good too.
I also train at a YMCA ( cheap and a block away)
with no rack. Yes it sucks. but it has a pool
OK today is the first day back since 11.3.08 because I got a
wicked stomach bug and thats what had me at the doctor.
Anyway this is what I did tonight.
10 mins incline treadmill walking
a bunch of stretching lunges etc.
Stomach (I do this every time I train.)
(I do the leg raises feet to face or feet to bar.)
A1 hanging leg raises 10,10,10
A2 standing rope crunches 10,10,10
I did some wood chop type things and some other twisting type crap
OH walking lunges
25 db 50feet x4 big steps
Barbell warm up a bunch of RDL, hang cleans, Hang snatch BO row
with just the bar.
Front Squat ATG
(I have to clean these so I cant go real heavy)
I do these ATG but only get a foot of the ground
then I went home.
My left hips and glute where super tight and killed me on the
RDLs 315 felt like shit I should have went lighter
cleaning every set of front squats gets old quick...
and really aggravates my tendonitis.
Usually a day like this I would do some OH press work.
but the jump squats kicked my ass.
I also neglected to foam roll which I need to do.
Ok thanks for reading.
