Kind of got to lift yesterday, but the workout was cut short.
I have only been doing jiu jitsu lately, so yesterday I decided to see where my strength was at.
I did chest
Warmed up with 45 #DBs
Incline I ended up doing 1 set of 65# DB's for 10, then 2 sets of 10 with 100#DB's. I did not think I was going to be able to even pop them up, so I shocked myself lol
It isn't the 135# DB's I have done in the past for sets of 10 on incline, but over a year off I figure it's not too shabby.
I fucked up my knee at work this last weekend bc everyone is fat as fuck, so no legs. I plan on going back to the gym 1 day a week and jiu jitsu whenever I can.
I am only 190 pounds in this pic, vs January 2015 being 218 pounds, and 212 pounds when I started Jiu Jitsu April 2015.
Thanks bro I had to focus on technique more with jiu jitsu, but strength never hurts to have. I don't plan on getting to where I was, I change every couple years and I feel like I have reached that mature muscle point now where it can be more dense. Like a part of me wants to but really low just to see if I can do it, the other part likes where I am, the other part wants to gain a some muscle back.
I do a lot of No Gi so Still a White belt. You have to do Gi classes to get promoted with belts, which I actually plan on doing today for the first time in a while. Been doing it for 1 1/2 years. BJJ is really hard to tell where you're at to, most frustrating part about it. I have tapped a good amount of blue belts, I have had brown belts not tap me in a 6 minute roll, but I have had white belts tap me, and I have had white belts that I couldn't seem to get anything off on other than a good position for the roll. few really good wrestlers that I have been at total stalemates with too, which is frustrating some times. I started doing it when I found out I have Chronic Kidney Disease, wanted to let my kidneys chill for a while if you know what I mean.
Metal are you not concerned with all the surgery you have had over the last few years..that being thrown around is good for ya..
you had a neck fusion and a major accident a while back right..
by the sounds of it you are all healed up which is great..
