Cord your Thursday work out sounds hardcore. Also, sparring with your dad has to be fun. My dad and I used to weight lift together all the time but not so much anymore. How is the shoulder?

Tuesday, December 5, 2006 - Thursday, December 7, 2006

Tuesday took as a total day of rest. Played Oblivion pretty much the whole night till 2:30 AM. Wednesday was grappling class and I stayed 2.5 hours again putting in a considerable amount of time on the mat and had another 1/2 continual roll with Doug to finish things off; game is getting better. Thursday is my wife and my day to sit back and catch up on things so spent the whole time with her.


Friday, December 8, 2006 - Week 424, Day 1109

Barbell Bench Press = 247 lbs = 4
Bench Press Partials = 230 NitroFlex = 4/3
Bench Press Partials = 220 NitroFlex = 4/4
Barbell Seated Military Press = 152 lbs = 5/5/5/5/4
Kickbacks = 84 lbs (per arm) = 8/10/10

For not doing this 12 days since last I expected some results to go down the toilet.


Saturday, December 19, 2006 - Sunday, December 10, 2006

Did class Saturday which was my first for having kids in a class as it is family day. Only went as I'm winding down before the operation and need to get in some more time before I can't; not much a class unfortunately. Then went Christmas shopping for my wife, came home and played Oblivion until 4:30 AM. Sunday a relax day and play Oblivion until 1:00 AM. Seems to be a common theme.

Plans for the week. Monday and Wednesday working out. Tuesday and Thursday class; Tuesday grappling & Thursday fundimental TKD. Friday ... this is the surgery day.

The shoulder is coming along good thanks going to try some chin ups tomorrow see if I can ditch the lat pulldown.

Training with my dad is always fun, we just play tag really, but its a good laugh and opens up plenty of mikey taking opertunities

Yes the hill sprint carries were horrible. If I am truthfull, it was technicaly 6x100m sprint 2x100 leaden footed jog, 2x100m wheezing stagger

Monday, December 11, 2006 - Week 425, Day 1110

Rear Lat Pulldowns = 120 lbs = 10 (Warm Up)
Rear Lat Pulldowns = 195 lbs = 5/5/5/5/5
Barbell Bent-Over Rows = 190 lbs = 8/8/8/8/8
Seated Isolated Dumbbell Bicep Curls = 69 lbs (each arm) = 4/4/4
Barbell Rear Shoulder Shrugs = 250 lbs = 5/6/9

Today was my pre-op for my ACL surgery for Friday. Talk to the physiotherapist and I won't be able to lift more then 10 lbs for at least 6 weeks. Physio starts 4 weeks after operation when staples removed. Not sure I'm looking forward to this. Came home and did the above workout before supper.

Lat Pulldowns were hard. Bent-Over Rows pretty easy. Suffered on the Bicep Curls and finished off with the Shoulder Shrugs that were very difficult and had to set the bar down a few times to regrip. Did 9 on the last set as I realize that this was the last Shoulder Shrug I will be doing for quite some time so put my all into it till exhaustion.

I am guessing since you can't lift more then 10 pounds martial arts classes are out of the question. Well looks like your xbox 360 is going to be replacing the gym for a little while. Maybe your therapy will go well and you can get back to training sooner then you think.

Definitely no TKD and no BJJ until at least 3 months and probably longer. I've been advised it takes 3 months for the bone to bone to heal. I've been told I should expect up to 6 months but I will play this by ear and my continued visits back to the surgery will hopefully have his go ahead prior to this time. SUCKS!

Not the last one for forever, just a while.

Have a good workout and take care of yourself.

Wednesday, December 13, 2006 - Week 425, Day 1111

Barbell Bench Press = 252 lbs = 4
Bench Press Partials = 225 NitroFlex = 4/4/4/4
Barbell Seated Military Press = 152 lbs = 5/5/5/4
Kickbacks = 84 lbs (per arm) = 10/10/10

Well that was my last workout till I am able to again. Finished at 1,111 work outs ... that is a feat in itself.

For the past weeks I have been decreasing the amount of calories I've been taking in by cutting out some extra meals and reducing the amount I'm actually eating. This is in preparation for my surgery as I won't be working out and I wanted my body to gradually get used to not eating all of that extra food. In the last 1.5+ weeks I've lost 5 lbs and I've noticed it in my workouts as I'm finding things much harder.

One big kick at the cat so up the Bench Press 5 lbs. Tough but got it out. Goal when getting back it to increase this ... not like I'm not already trying. Military Press I really put in the effort to get it done but only got 4 sets as the last one my neck was getting sore and today I can really feel it; not good. Was impressed how I pushed the 3rd set to get the 5th one ... pure stubbornness. Finished off with my favorite exercise and I did it proud.


Thursday, December 14, 2006

Had a poor sleep last night. Nose was stuffy, didn't go to bed till 2:00 AM, woke up repeatedly, saw something down the hallway that scared me (stress related) and my wife said I snored because my nose was plugged. I knew this as well as if I snore I wake up immediately as I'm a light sleeper. Woke up cranky and got to work a few minutes late. Calmed down now but not a good start.

Phone today at 2:30 to see when the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. Will go to class tonight which will be my last for a while. Probably won't be on the boards as much but will try to check back when I can to see what is up. Everything is in exceptional hands with Cord. Take care all and have a good Christmas and New Years ... or December break.

Cheers Dereck, best of luck with the operation, with your determination I am sure your rehab will be speedy and successful. Enjoy your time off from here and from training, and you will come back even stronger than before
(Good luck on the xbox360 as well )

A very merry christmas to you and yours
