I'm even more encouraged to see that you can still have a few drinks and smoke a spliff before you go back to training.
Thanks!

BJJ

Was a good class today, tons of rolling. I don't have the energy to go through it all though. Got a few good rolls with purples and blues, a couple wins a couple losses. Felt good to be back. I'm so sore right now.

Dude, congrats on the victory! It's really awesome that you finally got a fight and even more awesome on how great you did. It's been good watching you train hard and stay focused, keep it up.

Thank you!

Today was a bad day. My muscles are all still sore as hell. My right ankle started hurting again, which is bad news for getting back into training. On top of that I'm getting sick. Have been getting a cough today and in training I had no energy and felt like fainting. I don't want to jump the gun here but I'm worried I might have H1N1. Hopefully it's not that.

You should take some days off and focus on resting and eating a bunch. Maybe do some active recovery cardio type stuff, but take it easy for 3-5 days or so.

Could you elaborate on what that is?

I want to maximize my recovery time between workouts without having to sit on my ass.

Active recovery is basically just doing light work on your rest day to get some blood flow to your muscles. An example would be going on a long walk/hike type thing, maybe doing a few minutes of jump rope, some bag work, light weight lifting etc. The important part is you aren't over exerting yourself but rather just doing something light and easy.

Squat 6,6,6 @ 235lbs
Deadlift 6,6,6 @ 235lbs
DB Bench Press 6,6,6 @ 75lbs
Chin Up 6,6,6 @ b/w + 15lbs

Lifted, upped all the weights, ready for more weight.

Went to BJJ today, was great to be back but the cardio has declined... I got h1n1 virus so I've been out of commission the past while. It really wasn't that bad but one of the effects is shortness of breath...I can still feel that in training which is not cool, I keep almost fainting. Hopefully that's just the last legs of the sickness and that's not what I'm working with from now on.

Did BJJ again. Once again feeling really gassed, only did the first class. I triangled a guy in guard passes which was fun. Don't know what's going on, it feels like I can't breath deeply. On top of that my mind just isn't in the right place for training right now. Scrapping the tournament this weekend.

Went to MMA. Pretty mediocre class, didn't have anyone adequate to roll with so just taught some kids a few things.

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 33
2 - 25
3 - 21
4 - 22
5 - 21
Total - 122

First burpees in like a month. A big drop in numbers that I blame partially on getting sick, partially on the hiatus, and partially on a weaker diet. I'll get those inches back. I get my car back on the road in a week or two which will clear some obstacles to training. I had to walk an hour each way to get to the gym today.
