Hey guys,
I've fallen out with a regular update again...
I kept my workouts light after 10/2 due to a trip I was taking for re-enacting.

Thursday night before heading to bed I went to the hotel's mini gym and did a half hour of cardio work:
light stretching/yoga then onto treadmill.
I jacked up the treadmill to a dead sprint and went for 5 minutes, it ended up that I ran for a mile.
deeper stretching and some more yoga.
seated core press, flys, bench, curls, dips, at 100 pounds x 10 each.
there was a station for leg press or something similar did 5 presses at 100, 110 and 120 pounds.

The workout was fantastic for what I had available.

I took a trip to indiana for a battle re-enactment. Woke up at 7am friday-sunday to the sound of drums...
Each morning I did a set of 50 standing crunches pre breakfast and 50 more after. At breakfast had 3 bowls of steel cut oatmeal some rasins, dark rye bread, and bacon. Had 3 cups of coffee as well.

Friday morning around noon hour-long battle, had to take one of my green-tea pills to settle my stomach.

6 tin-cup fulls of water already at this point.

Lunch had two pork chops and some bread in the village and 2 large cups of lemonade.

the rest of friday was at leizure.

Saturday was the same as friday except there were two hour-long battles. Lunch had two bowls of tea, (I have a wooden bowl that probably has a capacity of 24oz at least)soup for this meal. Had a crossaint and roast beef sandwhich, some veggies and dip for dinner prior to a dance.

Sunday same as above two more hour long battles.

Over the last 6 weeks, I've been going about half an hour away with friends to an outdoor basketball court for 2-3 hours of games. I don't realize it but I am sprinting nearly the whole time so I figure my cardio is improving.

I found out at church today that men's basketball is starting again so I plan on adding that in as well. I will do basketball (cardio) mondays/tuesdays for some time now.

A friend from church offered to work with me on my weight conditioning. He says he has around a thousand pounds of free weights, a squat rack, bench,etc...He mentioned something about an old gas tank filled with cement that weighs around 100+ pounds that he has a cable attached to for a sled. I'll have to start waking early in the mornings if I want to work with him.

Things have gone semi good since I posted last.
I've been working on the punch drills lighter this time around.

I am doing 5 of the 3-minute rounds instead of going to failure right now.

Light circuit lifts back to 120 pounds.

Saturday morning the 22nd I felt like crap and picked up a bottle of NyQuil, I slept through most of that day, woke up took some more, and slept through sunday and monday. I figured I'd recover while I had the time off.

I am feeling vastly better today. I decided to find my max deadlift. It is low right now but my max is 185 pounds.
I did 5x5 at 165 and 3x3 at 185 today.

I have a lifting belt, I strapped it on for these lifts and attempted a dual arm curl (kneeling) with it on at 185 but I couldn't budge the weight.

Things have gone well, the 5 round warm-up has increased to 10 now.

I had a shock today, weighed in at 180 pounds even....I don't know where the weight has piled on but it is fairly scary.

If it continues I'll have to drop 25 or more pounds to compete.

I saw the chiropractor today,we are working on a recovery plan to heal my anterior deltoid muscle on my right shoulder.

I believe I was injured by a mir lock that was overly applied.

holy hell....!

I just did a number to my right middle finger, I was working on a yoga routine.

I was doing a crane pose, where you balance yourself on your hands and have your elbows inner kneecap.

I thought my weight was correct...but it was too far forward and I heard and felt a pop in the middle finger and now it's throbbing O Joy!

I rarely take any painkiller at all, but tonight I threw 8 five-hundred mg bayer painkiller about 10 minutes ago. Hopefully this will kill the pain. It sucks to even type this out.

The only positive thing I can report is I'll be heading to my chiropractor tomorrow.

things are going slightly better now, that I've rested a few days.

I am having issues with balling up my right fist, it's putting a fair amount of strain on the knuckle on the fist.

I have better grip strength I can grab a blanket now...

Fortunately I can do my overhand diamond pushups without any pain in the hands. I figure if I have two weeks where I can't do much in the way of lifting I'll hit my core and lunges.

I just checked out where my instructor works now.

He is in charge of a YCMA about 15 minutes from me.
I will get in for about $25/month for everything in the building, including classes.

I plan on taking advantage of this once I get through a 2 week course in january.

If things go to plan I can spend several hours/daily monday through thursday over there honing my skills.

One of the things that thrilled me the most was the fact he'll be opening up shop in the Y, he was telling me his master my Grandmaster...will be working with him on instructing us in the traditional arts which he and my instructor have developed.

Thanks Rusty,

I hope things will turn around for me!

I've put in a lot of blood sweat and tears during the last two years. One day all of this will pay off for me.

Today my grip strength felt slightly better, it still hurts to ball my fist.

I've found that if I put my gloves on (mma/style gloves) that I can do punch drills without pain...for some reason if I don't wear the gloves it hurts to throw a right hand punch.

my core hurts like hell from doing the overhand diamond pushups which is a good thing, it's showing me how weak my core has become because I don't mix up my training enough.

Hopefully by saturday my abs won't be sore, so I can do 150-200 of the pushups and tear to a new level of power.
