Whole week was a bust. Wasn't feeling well and today on Sunday I can't say I'm feeling much better. I put off working out hoping to recover and not make myself worse and I got worse anyways. We will see how I'm feeling Monday and I want to get at this.

My dog bit me on the hand, so I haven't been able to punch with my right hand for the whole day. Yup it was a deep bite, but it was due to my stupidity. I was playing with his food, so naturally he'd bite me.

Anyway, Dereck, put this song on. It'll help with your training, for sure!

It's awesome when you're really tired and want to do one more set.

Think of catching chicken! Remember that scene!

Fight on Pappa Dereck!

Oh, yeah, I've been working on my left side the whole day today. Punching from the guard, punching from natural position, lifting weights with the left hand. Thought, I might as well strengthen that side to be able to fight more efficiently from the orthodox stance.

Thanks Taison. Was still feeling crappy Monday, enough to stay home which I don't do much. Probably wasn't up more then 8 hours or so. Laid around all day and felt crappy and still feel crappy today. Got to get better, dang it. It has been a week since last working out and I hate this with a passion.

Thursday, March 15, 2007 - Week 432, Day 1124

Barbell Bench Press = 232 lbs = 3x7
Dumbbell Bent-Arm Laterals = 79 lbs per arm = 1x8, 2x7
Dumbbell Incline Laterals = 79 lbs per arm = 2x5, 1x5+
Barbell Decline Bench Press = 202 lbs = 1x6, 1x5, 1x6

Leg Extensions - 25 lbs - left leg only - 2x20

After not being able to workout for 9 days, this was a good day to get back at things. 1 more rep on the bench. Upped the laterals by 5 lbs per arm and pushed to finish things off big on the decline bench. I'm expecting good results from this body building regiment.

My plans are to try to work out everyday though I will have to play this by ear for how I'm feeling and what time I have to give to this program. I don't want to set myself up to fail so will give myself some leeway as I need it but I want to be as big as I can prior to return to TKD/BJJ on June 15th.

Worked a bit on my leg as it is still weak and I need to get it stronger. Doing physio still and this is to supplement it. Won't be jogging for a while but as I get it stronger then this will bring me closer to pushing myself more. See the surgeon on the 4th of July to see how I'm progressing and where we go from here.

Hey Dereck,

I know that you are injured, but do you not think that just doing an upper-body routine all the time would not be all that good for you? Most things I've read always stress to do lots of work on the legs to rule out imbalances "like building pyramids backwards" (Cord,2007).

Is it beacause you are experienced enough and have sufficient strenght development that you can do this? Just wondering.

Best wishes on your recovery.

This means that his leg work is all geared around, and supervised by his healthcare team, and wisely, he is adhering to the rehab program. As his knee returns to full strength, you can expect to see his lower body regime come into balance with his upper body work.

Sorry to jump in, but I hope this clarifies things for you

Cheers, but wouldn't the physio exercises and bodybuilding exercises contradict each other? I.E. the intensities of the two would differ, providing differing stimulus for the muscles being worked to grow and resulting in an imbalance.

I haven't had a chance to post but Cord is bang on. Here are the plans I have set for myself.

Day 1 = Chest
Day 2 = Shoulders
Day 3 = Back
Day 4 = Triceps
Day 5 = Biceps
Day 6 = Legs (to be added shortly)

This is a body building regiment and involves going to fatigue. Plus I have physio 1 to 2 times a week which I follow a strict plan that was laid out by my surgeon. I currently start out with heat for 15 minutes and then hit the bike/treadmill/elliptic for 10 minutes. This is followed by some stretching and then immediately into wall squats with ball, bridging with ball, wobbly board (3 minutes), slider (3 minutes), lunges, chair walks (5 minutes), lunges with band resistance and then finished with trampoline where I stand on my one leg and bounce a ball (100 bounces). Surprisingly this feels like a full workout and I'm at physio for 1.5 hours and I don't believe they've ever seen somebody so gun hoe who works as hard and is self driven.

I have an appointment with my surgeon on the 4th of April and I will know where I am and how I can proceed. I tried jogging like I was suppose to but it had negative affects and set me back in my recover. Pushing my legs too much is not something I'm willing to do at this point but it has to be addressed soon. I've been doing leg extensions per my surgeon and as of yesterday am doing 3x10 of 40 lbs. This should give you an indication of how poor my leg is at this time.

Thanks for your concern as working the upper body is most certainly not a good thing to do but I'm taking it day by day.

Friday, March 16, 2007 - Week 432, Day 1125

Barbell Seated Military Press = 142 lbs = 1x8, 2x7
Dumbbell Seated Side Lateral Raises = 29 lbs per arm = 1x9, 2x7
Barbell Upright Rows = 105 lbs = 1x7, 2x6
Dumbbell Seated Bent-Over Rear Deltoid Raises = 44 lbs per arm = 1x10, 2x8

Leg Extensions (left only) = 35 lbs = 2x20

Upped the Military Press by 2 lbs and was able to do more reps then prior so a positive. Able to do more Lateral Raises with more weight as well so a second positive. Upright Rows upped by 5 lbs so a third positive. Deltoid Raises also upped the weights 5 lbs per side so a fourth positive. Moving in the right direction.

Also doing my lifting to strengthen my knee/leg. Going extremely slow.


Sunday, March 18, 2007 - Week 433, Day 1126

Seat Rear Lat Pulldowns = 190 lbs = 1x8, 2x7
Barbell Bent-Over Rows = 200 lbs = 3x7
Closed Grip Lat Pulldowns = 160 lbs = 1x7, 1x6, 1x7
Barbell Rear Shoulder Shrugs = 225 lbs = 1x8, 1x11, 1x9

Leg Extensions (left only) = 40 lbs = 3x10

Upped the Pulldowns by 5 lbs and moving forward. Bent-Over-Raises upped my reps. Closed-Grip pushed for more reps. Shrugs I did far more repetitions then I thought I could so will have to up the weight. I did however for the last two sets set the bar down to regrip and continue. Have to work on my grip. All positives again.

Worked further on the leg and upped by 5 lbs.

Triceps tonight, really looking forward to this.

I understand, I was just curious.

Keep up the good work! Looking forward to hearing you get fully recovered.
