I'm not sure what happened today other than the heat/humidity just sapped my will to live. Ate and slept fine so nothing to look at there. The DL was fine speed wise, but I was about to have a coronary at 325 but gutted out the 345 and figured it best to drop down. Did teh bike for a little extra work and called it quits.

a week off is good for the body but does pull you back a bit. Next week will be WAY better.

Thanks Jack.

Tues 8/17
Elliptical 20:00 Intervals
"200" Situps - 15, 18, 11, 14
Skin the cat x 20
Stretching

A trojan at the office took up half the day, needless to say, got out of work too late to head to JJ. Pushed it on the Elliptical and was happy to see my knee gave no complaints, no need for the bike anymore. I seem to have recouped the knee mobility that was lost due to the week of inactivity, grappling dummy should arrive tomorrow, my UPS guy is gonna raise all kinds of hell :finga:

Thurs 8/19
Elliptical 20:00 Intervals
10:00 - Triangle and shrimping drills
Stretch

Work was insane and dragged out. I need to get better at getting out to JJ when I have days like this, but for now, not gonna happen. Ijust wanted to get home, break a sweat and have some red wine.

Quick and dirty, kept a really solid pace on the intervals, knee felt great so glad I can do some harder cardio/conditioning again. I need to really work on my flexibility, I'm pretty tight around hips/groin which makes Triangles nearly impossible. I need to drill the basics for a good while, I flop around like a fish out of water. A positive though, again the knee felt superb, except at one point during right side shrimps where it was a little shaky. I need to be conscious of my footing.

* Heart beating like a freight train, stress throughout the day had the heart doing backflips, had not experienced anything like that in a long time. Decided doing a little was better than doing nothing and beating myself up over it.

Apparently Life has decided that I need to be a nail for a while. So goes it. I'll do what I can, when I can, as hard as I can. JJ will be there and I'll make it when possible. I'll continue to train at home with the idea that I'll be consistent (w/JJ) at some point in the near future and grab a class or a private as time allows. Thank God for my garage gym or I'd have gone postal long, long ago. At least the lifting is somewhat on track.

DL was brutally hard. Felt a twinge in my lower back, but it did not affect the lifting thankfully. Today was god awful hot, which is the only explanation I can offer for how hard DL was this afternoon.

Gm 225 5x5
BSS 4x8
Skin cat 20
Ham stretch + knee rom work

Knee felt wobbly for first time in a bit on teh a few reps in the last set of BSS. Might be from the work I put in yesterday. On a positive note, sat in a full catcher's squat almost pain free for about a couple seconds before the knee started complaining. First time since the injury, need to get serious about the rom and strengthening work. Taking a bosu to the office for some rehab work in the AM.

THURS 9/16/10
Elliptical 20:00
Quick stretch for Hams, lower back and some Knee ROM work
200 Situps - 15,18,12,12,30

NOTE: Left elbow starting to complain on outside. Been on and off for a week now, not getting worse or better, just the occasional complaint. Looks like a back-off after next week will be in order.

Lower back was not as tight this time for the elliptical and I was able to push the pace a bit more, specifically towards the end. Slowly getting ROM back in the knee, need to stay religious with the rehab. Funny how much easier it is to knockout some situps if your back is not locking up because of DL or GM.

Just got word this afternoon that a deal I was working on for the biz went south, which might mean a couple of weeks of hell if I need to resort to Plan B. Oh well, only ever done things the hard way, no idea why I thought this would have been any different. Fuck it - over, under, around or fucking through it...

BP Alt CG/NG 175 8x3
GM 305x5, 255x5, 305x5, 255x5, 305x5
1Arm Row 80 4x8
Skin catx20; ham stretch + Knee ROM

Removing any type of conditioning or cardio on lifting days was the right move for me right now. It allows me to focus on whatever that days task is better then trying to keep up with everything. I feel fresher both mentally and physically this way. The GM felt strong, decided to take Jack's suggestion for the DL and BP and apply it to the GM, worked nicely.

Tried some "regular" air squats and felt no discomfort in the knee. Might start taking out the bar and see how a few reps feel. Would like to get back to squating in the near future.

Down side, left elbow is getting tender, used sleeves for the speed bp which kept it happy, but its definately not 100%. I should be able to make it through next week without much of an issue though, then a backoff as my lower back would also welcome a deload.

Tues 9/21/10
Elliptical 30:00
Stretch + ROM 20:00
"200" situps - 17, 20, 14, 14, 35

I'm going to stick with no more than 20:00 on the elliptical and push the intensity. I think for where I'm at right now, I'll get more benefit from a higher intensity over 20 than a slightly lower intensity over 30. Got in a really good stretching session and knee ROM work. I've gotten stiff all around, really need to address that as I feel at any moment something is gonna go pop. The situps are coming along. I was able to knockout 35 on my last set when 35 or 40 were my max when I started working on it...
