joy

After working out I went to a friends apartment for a party, and was hit by a cold.

I have never felt so weak in my life...I was broken down by the lifts and today is my first semi comfortable day in regards to general movement.

I was able to see my general dr. yesterday. I got some 3 prescriptions that seem to be helping.

I was asleep from midnight tuesday till about 5-6pm wednesday.
From the time I woke up until about noon thursday I could not fall asleep for anything...

I was able to get some rest with some sleeping medication from the dr. that afternoon. And got a little more this morning before I had to wake up at 6:45am for a 8:30 test.

I got there and scored an 85 and now I am certified as a nurse aide! I will be getting my suit ready for interviews this week ahead.

Once I am healthy I'll go and sign up for the gym and interview.

I have been focusing on stretching more this week and I am seeing some huge gains on my side split. I am pretty close to being to have my legs flat, from what I can tell there is roughly 6 inches to drop below I can accomplish this feat!

I attribute the gains to diligence and a 70lb dumbell.

I could add weight to it and get it to 80-100 lbs and work just a little more and I think I'll do this tomorrow. Every little bit helps. I if I have to I can bring the dumbell to the gym one of these days and add more than 100 lbs, I would feel safe that way.

The beauty of the weight assist is if it hurts after the time I allot for it I just drop the dumbell to the floor.

I got a bit of good news, my right hand felt great last night when I attempted a dead-lift session. I wore my lifting belt and punched out 80 lifts @ 170 pounds. I did this in 2 sets of 25 & 15. It seems I had a great deal of endurance left from all of the lifts I have done prior. I never really did any heavy numbers like the 25 and 15 so I totally shocked myself.

I tried a short run with a friend tonight we went out a mile and on the return my left quad muscle cramped up bad. It hurt like hell just walking on it. So much for running anytime in the near future.

Hey guys,

the stretching is going well I am still right around 5 inches from the floor.

I have re-introduced my cardio/power circuits. I have done 1 per day since my last post and just now I did two with a minute rest between the cycles.

I clocked my 1st cycle at 1:45 +/s 5 seconds. The 2nd cycle was at 1:55 +/s 5 seconds.

I stripped my bar to 80 pounds to start from scratch and rebuild my cardio quicker than if I tried to maintain my pre-injury weight of 170 pound lifts.


I am one step closer now to getting the nursing job, I found my name is listed on the iowa registry for nurses.

By way of logic, once I get the new job and start taking a supplement called jack3d which I field tested the other day...I will build my cardio up 2-4 times quicker and have a reduced turn around.

If my body can withstand the punishment I plan on attempting a 200 pound circuit. If that is even possible, I want to shoot for the same times I just posted or faster at that weight.

With this said...my ground fighting will grow proportionately due to my prowess for being able to hang in for the whole night and not wear down mentally. I may have physically tired but my mind never reached the point where I was gassed.

I went through 3 cycles today, one of the cycles had a series of 7's.
I may up the dose to sets of 7's next week. and push for one extra rep per set per week till I hit twelve.

Once I hit twelve I would be doing a double set of what I started at.

I feel fantastic with the lifting, it is kicking my ass but that's a sign that I am soft.

I was foolish yesterday I did deep stretching through my yoga routine after I was cold from the circuits.

I changed this today and it was a good way to cool off while gaining at the same time.

My plan with yoga is to start the short session that I've got on video after I finish my circuits for the week next thursday. I will be implementing the yoga as a dedicated session friday-sunday if my body can handle it.

Things are looking up. My resume is close to being complete I have to dig up one more bit of information then I'll be ready to interview.

I have started playing basketball with my friends again, and strained my left wrist monday night.

I rested until yesterday. Yesterday was a great day, it was warm for one..., I got out at a reasonable time, went to the bag with my combat gloves, right hand felt fine throwing light punches.

I will be starting a new approach to my bag work, IE instructor's wishes.

He is wanting me to throw 150 strikes for each strike I know, so I started this yesterday.

I did jab, straight right, left & right hook, right roundhouse, left roundouse/switch kick?, right teep, right and left knees, and elbows.

I am worn out from this workout from yesterday and today. My main focus right now is just form, no power.

I have been working on the technique circuits each day except for today.

I simply didn't have time to work them into my schedule.

I spent 4-5 hours at the plasma center and got $55, it was a painfully long day there...but at least I got a semi clear answer as to why I experience a strength advantage after donating.

One of the screening assistants was proposing that since I was loosing part of the make-up of our blood, that when the red-blood cells minus the plasma increases the concentration of red blood cells.

From what I understand about our blood and it's very little...if you have more red blood cells you'll be able to take in more oxygen and more nutrients I guess.

I got a nap from about 4pm till 6:30 and then got to basketball at 7 for a 2 hour series of games. I felt fine for the 1st hour, I know that I was moving quicker than normal.

There is one downside to this process just like trying to dope with whole blood, yes you will have an advantage...but you will gas-out quicker.

If tomorrow goes as planned I'll work outside for the store doing more construction, and I'll be off by 2-4pm. I could get a nap in till 5 and then go blast on the bag.

Monster!

I am really glad I stopped by a supplement store called Vitman Shoppe here in town the other day.

I talked with the store manager there, I was looking for a pre-workout supplement called Jack3d. He was kind enough to give me two sample packets.

I plan on going through the manager there for all of my needs. He was excited when I mentioned I was going to use this for cardio work to build my base for jiu-jitsu.

I think I will try to buy in bulk there if it is possible a bottle that costs $29.99 will last 25-30 workouts.

I used one of the packets today before what seemed like a long session of bag-work.

I know that I fatigued, but the muscle fatigue never really showed up at all which is surprising since I did 200 jabs, straight rights, hooks (left/right), 200 reverse power punches all for hand strikes!

I went as far as I could with roundhouse kicks, I didn't touch the pendulum kicks or the push-kick today.

I ended up throwing 200 left roundhouse and 500 rights. I primairly focused on technique only with the right kicks, but I did throw 100 heavy rights. For the Left I only focused on technique.

I am definitely impressed with the level I was able to hit today with this cheap cardio boost. I am sure that I will see massive power gains through drilling the techniques into memory this way.

I am definitely feeling the effects of the bag work from last night, I've got a 5-inch tall purple welt from slamming the bag so potently with the right roundhouse on my shin!

My core is definitely screaming as well, I loved the drive that jack3d gave me.

I got down to the store where I got the samples and spent $32 on a jar that'll last me 22 sessions of training.

"IF ANYONE" uses this stuff make sure you drink during the session otherwise you will get extremely light headed and nauseous.

In that 45-minute drilling last night I went through 3 pints of water, and drank 3 or 4 more after the fact.

new routine

I got through my 1st real shift of nursing today an 8-hour day.

I had a liter bottle with the jack3d on the way out to the new gym and a few veggiess.

I met up with my instructor and he took me to his combat room in the facility he works at now.

He's got a whole bunch of nice gear to play with:

mats, several free-standing bags one of which was a bob.

I focused my energy on this bob bag: I worked on technique only for the jab, straight right, hooks, uppercut right-hand only the lead left (didn't feel right), and power reverse punches for hand-strikes at least.

I worked some right roundhouses with the head of the guy slightly higher than mine.

I did the teeps, a left roundhouse, and a pendulum kick.

The power-reverse punch is one that I'm drilling the hell out of. I did close to 800 right/left strikes with this technique.

I enjoyed working the right-roundhouse on this bag because it had the human head. I was enjoying the fact I could actually strike the neck with my shin and understand the technique better that way...instead of only striking a bag.

This last 50-minutes from start to finish.

After that I refilled my liter bottle, which I went through during that stint.

I went down to a heavy bag, and worked a jab-straight right combo....jab-straight right-left hook.

I'm not sure if it was the fact that the bag was in a hallway, but my shots were hellishly loud. I enjoyed the feeling of the heavier bag and felt the contact a lot better. I spent 15 minutes on this.

After that I went and did 50 situps on an reverse bench, 3 sets of adduction press @ 10x 100lbs, 10x 150, and 10x 180..., and a light 15 minute jog to end the night.
