Kujs Finding His Way


#1

I am going to keep a training log here to track my progress and hopefully get some input from some of you more experienced people out there. I am soon to be 20 years of age and right now I am starting to train with the purpose and goal of joining the army in my country.

I have been lifting for about a year, with varied succes. Before I started going to the gym I trained some martial arts and did alot of running. As of writing this though, I have gained alot of weight, mostly because of being a lazy slob in general, along with high levels of stress in school causing me to overeat(stupidly enough). I am sitting around 110 KG at 195 CM at about 25% bodyfat.

What I aim to do is lose some of this weight, gain some strength, and improve my fitness before I go in to the basic training in about 2 years.

I am not following a strict regimen or program right now. I will train as hard and as often that I can manage. I do mostly powerlifting style training right now, but will slowly transistion into more general fitness, running and rucking training.

Would love some input regarding training for the armed services, I know there is some people with a lot of experience in that area on these forums.

First time training martial arts in about 2 years. Went alot better than I expected, even though I didn’t really push it too hard. Coach said I was doing good so thats something I guess. My pivoting knee and my calves are a little wrecked. Worked mostly lowkicks.

Well, Today was my first time trying BJJ in recent years, and at the school I am training at today was sparring, which was quite worthless for me, being that I am this new. No tips from the coach etc…
Might look around for another BJJ studio.

Squats felt like shit, as usual nowadays. Frustrating and saddening. Need to get stronger, more consistent and more stable. Chipping away.
