DB RDL - harder than I expected.
Lat. Step Up - just to reinforce my hip work.

DB curls/tris/calves - didn't have 3 rounds of this in me today. The earlier 25s really depleted my energy.

11/2/13

AM: MMA class. Worked a new guillotine-counter-guillotine move, and a variation of that as well with KK~. The did some rolling, some ground with T~, then with KK~, then my coach (who mauled me). Then standup, boxing only, with KK~. Got rocked a few times, but when he got tired I got in some strikes, too. Covered well without turtling up, but I wasn't moving into my strikes well.

11/4/13

Afternoon: Workout

Warmup: Foam rolling, lacrosse ball rolling, mobility drills, TKEs

1a) Tube Press - 4 x 25 x yellow
1b) 2H Cable Row - 4 x 25 x #16
2a) Glider Lunge - 3 x 8e x 25# KB
2b) DB RDL - 3 x 15 x 35# DBs
2c) Lateral Step Up - 3 x 12e x 25# KB
3a) Zottman Curl - 2 x 25 x 20# DBs

***

Tube Press/Rows - felt good, although the rows felt heavy by the end.

Glider lunge - felt better than last week.
RDLs - same. Glad I didn't go up.
Lateral Step Up - good weight for these.

Z Curls/Tris/Calf Raises - only had energy in me for two sets. The 4 x 25 takes a lot more out of me than 5 x 20.

Shoulder Set - the usual front raise/lateral raise alternation. Very light on the front raise but heavy on the lateral raise.

Ws - for rear delts and shoulders in general.

11/6/13

Afternoon: Light KB workout

Warmup: Foam rolling

KB Swing - 5 x 20 x 20kg KB, 1 minute rest

***

This felt short, but not easy, and my back was a bit sore after. But not hurt, just sore. Hmm. Need to add something to my warmup or what?

Swings felt fine. Not too many, not too few.
