AM: MMA class. Worked from in opponent's guard with four different guys. Mostly did pretty well but I made a couple mistakes and got caught. Caught another guy with a triangle that shouldn't have worked except I'd tired him out. Need to work more on my setups.

PM: Some extra stair climbing.

Afternoon: Lower body

Warmup: mobility drills

1a) Step Up - 2 x 8 each x 30# DBs, 8 each x 35# DBs
1b) KB Swing - 3 x 12 x 60# KB
2) Cable Leg Curl - 3 x 10 each x #13
3) Calf Raise - 200
4) Wall Sit - 1:30

***

Step-Up - good but hard.

KB Swing - Felt good, but I locked out hard on one rep and my knee ached. I'm usually doing these just short of full lockout on my knees, and saving lockout for slow movements like step-ups.

Leg Curls - felt good. Hard but not too hard.

Calf Raises - 200 is good for now, I'll go up soon.

Wall sits - 60 seconds was easy. So was 90, but I didn't want to push it.

My Friday client had to cancel, so I combined my Thursday and Friday workouts.

Rows - felt good and hard.

Zottman curls - improving quickly, but still hard.

Pushdowns - just to get in some balancing arm work.

Backhands - felt solid.

Abs - still hard but improving.

Tube Row Iso-Hold - basically rowed back, held at the peak contraction until my arms were shaking.

Thomas Finisher - 8 rounds of prowler/rope slams. 50 seconds rest (shaved 5 seconds off from last time.)

5/25/13

AM: MMA class. Worked grappling (starting from standing) with T~ and J~. Did okay. I got off a few interesting moves (a strong side sit across, an inverted triangle from the bottom of north-south, a double arm-in arm triangle) but got mashed on a couple (a choke, a neck crank). Held pads briefly for J-L. My cardio felt good but I was oddly winded after each round.
Finished out working the basics of another triangle setup, and showing it my friend F~ who came in for the next class early (and who is a consummate triangle user).

Step Up - these felt easy today, so I went up a little. I don't want to push it too much.

KB Swings - heavy. Working back up.

Leg Curls - went for 20s today to get extra work in, since I went lower on swings.

Calf Raises - I need to add weight to these.

Wall Sit - felt good.
