Afternoon:

Foam rolling.

***

What the hell? Did some foam rolling on my sore body, and from the moment I finished my lower back started to hurt, hurt, hurt. Not a twinge before. What the?

Back still hurts so I didn't do MMA.

Maybe Zercher lunges were a terrible idea.

11/19/12

PM: Cardio

Elliptical - 20 minutes, 0.74 miles @ 60/10
Wall Sit - 60 seconds

***

Just some cardio. My back is still achy, despite ibuprofen and fish oil and topical rubs. Argh. It'll get better, I can feel the improvement, but I'm annoyed this happened.

Elliptical: Just wanted to get to 20 minutes so I know I can do it when I try 100/10 (maximum) for HICT. Heart rate in the 120s and 130s today, but still sweating. I guess the best thing I can say about my knee surgery was that before, my knee hurt on the elliptical. Now it doesn't.

Wall Sit: 60 seconds straight, felt okay. Could have gone longer but my goal is not to push things too far. When I do, I suffer more than gain.

Tomorrow, if I feel up to it, more lifting. I was able to knock off a few pistols to an 18" box showing them to a client, so I'm clearly not totally debilitated.

Notes: I wrote down, and then misplaced, my workout notes. I'm not certain what else I did, as I was in a big rush to finish and then started writing my client's workouts. I'll edit this later if/when I find it.

Very frustrating.

Editing later: found my notes.

Rest day. Lots of walking, and I'm not sure how that happened, it didn't feel like I did that much.

11/22/12

AM: Traditional Thanksgiving lifting

Warmup: Hip and glute mobility drills

Trap Bar Deadlift - 5 x 140, 5 x 190, 5 x 230, 10 x 140

***

Not much today, not with my back still feeling sore. But I wanted to see how I felt DLing. Answer: Not great. My back felt cranky, and my right knee didn't hurt but lifting over 190 felt not-good. So I think DLs have to stay off the menu for a while longer.

Also, why 140, 190, 230? My bar + the heavy collars is 50.~ pounds, not 45 like a standard bar. No idea why but the scales tell me so.

11/24/12

AM: MMA class. Worked standup on the mits with G~. Mostly one-twos and kicks.

***

Been a while since I did standup. My shoulder doesn't like hooks so I dropped them. My hips felt great kicking, though, and I felt like I was throwing effortlessly. My cardio still needs to improve.

Did not have a lot of time today, so I just did what I could.

Press/Rows - rowing feels fine both sides, pressing is still very weak on my right.

BSS - Hard. Been a while and balance was bad but I managed to get in 8 good reps per side per set.

Prowler - Did the trips I had time for.

Curls/Pushdowns - the usual extra arm stuff just because.
