I always said that having a personal journal helps to remeber and to keep a detail record of your progress. Therefore I've made the choice to share my training schedule here with everyone else.

Yesturday- Ran on the mill for 45mins. Plyometrics with medicine balls, stabilizer push ups, abs, obliques, more sprints, and more abs.

After I was getting ready for Muay Thai but I ahd to run to the hospital with one of the guys that got KO bad and was in bad shape.

I will post more todaoy later.

Last night I trained legs and cardio. 1/2 way squats, lunges, step ups, takedown explosion drills, more running, calf raises, lots of streaching, and shin extensions. Then some cardio and explosion drills huging the heavy bag and drilling lateral drops and suplexes, double legs and running with the bag, rope work and climbing the rope 3 times. (you got to see the rope we climb)

At night we had our standard Judo and BJJ class. We drill Osaeokomi and a 1/2 sweep. Trained with everyone in the room for 3 minutes non stop. That totaled about 42 minutes of straight rolling.

Yes I'm sore as hell but I know the soreness will go away!!!

More tonight or tomorrow!

You might, however be ready to take a good right from me to be followed by a double leg and G&P!

Last night I did more cardio on the mill for 30 minutes, sprints and abs. I cut it short since I feel very sore and knowing my body I need the rest. Hey I'm old.

Today I worked back and biceps. First I did lateral rows, bicep curls, lateral flys, hammer curls, pull ups, rope climb, and pull ups pulling on a gi to work my grip.

I ran for 15 minutes at moderate speed and did more abs.

Tomorrow rest.

Trained MMA with a high level brown belt for 20 minutes until I kick him in the head and he was dizzy and my shin hurt, then Sub-Wrestling.

Good Joke- I submitted everyone last night with a triangle. Why is that funny you might ask, well I'm short as hell and I do not have the long legs for good set up of triangle. If you knew my game you would think is funny too.
