Peter--it may be too late for you to see this before your fight on Saturday (we've been having network problems, and I haven't been on the internet for more than about 5 minutes for a few days) but I wanted to try to wish you good luck! You couldn't have trained harder or smarter. You'll do well. Most of all have a good time.

Thanks doc. I lost, I'm disappointed by that, but yeah, I'm glad I did it. I enjoyed the day and no one got hurt. Well, not me and not by me, anyway. That's worth celebrating, so we went out for all-you-can-eat Asian buffet afterwards. Mmm...

Ah, sorry to hear that. I hope that it was a good experience, and that the Asian buffet was good!

So exactly why wouldn't "pulls" fit in?

Starts with "Banded."

I may sneak them in on Friday, though.

***

By the way it's Summer schedule at two of my jobs, so at the moment I don't work Saturday morning anymore. That means I can make it to MMA class if I want to. So my current plan is:


Sunday: Off
Monday: DeFranco's
Tuesday: MMA
Wednesday: Off
Thursday: DeFranco's
Friday: AM Prowler pushes, PM MMA
Saturday: AM MMA or AM lifting

The aim is to get in 3x a week of MMA and 2x a week of lifting. I need to prioritize my technique work if I want to stay in Advanced and do better. But my work schedule made 3x a week impossible - I had classes or clients, overlapping all but 3 MMA classes, and the other was overlapped by DeFranco's.

The Prowler work might shift around. I find steady-state cadio really boring but I have this Econo Prowler just sitting there when I get to work every morning, so I'll try to push it at least 1x a week for 6-10 trips to keep my conditioning up.

I put my fight video in my log, but here they are. Both are Executive (age 30+) No-Gi Advanced Middleweight (160-179.9 lbs).

First Round:

Runner-up round for 3rd place:

I'm disappointed but I fought against two good guys who didn't make errors I could capitalize on, and they were quick to capitalize on mine. I still can't identify where in my matches I hurt my wrist.

Yeah, but it could be listed as "Pull, Rope, Banded."

But you could do them with Bulgarians, Barbell roll-outs, Bench press, Barrel toss and Body-weight dips. Bent-over rows! Of course, you could move the BW dips to your D day.

Yeah. I googled it, and the only real hit I got was your post. This makes me think that I'd never want to train with you. Do most of your clients survive the experience?

It's this:

My boss has been using these with clients since I got there, but I saw it again in this article, too;

They are really good, but only once you can do a plank. Not a problem for either of you guys.

I tried these out. I never really found a way to get my feet to move freely enough. Sock feet on hardwood was the best I could do. They're similar to ab roll outs which I do now. Lots of fun anyway.

Yeah. I find them easier than ab roll outs, in that I don't need to control the barbell or wheel, but they are still murder on my midsection.

Hey, good job on the 295 dead. You're catching up with me. I think this is the only lift I'm still ahead of you on! I'm going to try for 310 this afternoon, if I can get out of work at a reasonable hour.

And you got it, too.

I'm sure I have more than 295 in me for a single, I just have to be smart about how to get there. I knew when I tried to pull the second rep today at 295 that I didn't have it, and my back would pay for it.

I have to work out why my lower back is such a PITA.

I'm the same Peter. I pulled 315 once about 2 years ago but 285 for 2 is about the most I've done in a while. It the lower back that gives out first and grinding out the last rep can mean a sore back for a week.
