Dude I miss this time in wrestling! This was back when girls were girls and men were men! Where you can have a wrestling gimmick and not worry about being “politically incorrect”.... and when wrestlers looked like wrestlers... not like the ones today that look like the average guy you see on the street. Man I miss those days! So glad I grew up with 80s rasslin!

Don't know why, decided to train...

I did tear a deck of cards in front of 2 new co workers I'm training... on the job... So, maybe, that was the deciding factor...

30 minutes on exercise bike

3x10 rotator cuff movement 

3x10 KB swings

3x10 seated DB shoulder press

*used full range of motion*

5x2 push press 225 lbs

*used a thumbless grip, helped... felt easy*

5x2 flat bench press 355 lbs

*some sets were rough, some were nice*

3x10 bent over rows

Tried the hub today...

Working some singles of 45 lbs... broke ground with 55 lbs right, nothing on left... Probably, it's been a long time, since I trained with the hub...

Dropped down

35 lbs 3x5

30 lbs 3x10

5 sledgehammer finger walks 

*might have been 6*

Hands & wrists are feeling it now, same with the shoulders... Tomorrow, I'm working late, rack up some OT! Wednesday, I'm taking a break... Thursday going back to mma training, been 3 weeks, some of the guys asking when I'm coming back... & I got a lot of aggression to let loose...

Shall see on Friday...

Usually, any kind of pressing is one of my many weaknesses

I guess mma training last night, kinda whooped my @$$! For some reason, decided to train anyway...

30 minutes on exercise bike

3x10 KB swings

3x10 KB goblet squats

3x10 BB shrugs

*been a long time since doing this*

5x2 deadlifts 405 lbs

*another been awhile, wanted to do hook grip, but my thumb bleed out of nowhere after the 1st set*

3x5 fat gripz DO deadlifts

*simulate axle somewhat*

3x10 country crush deadlifts 265 lbs

3x10 Bulgarian bag spins each direction

1x50 pulley handles with resistance band good mornings

5 sledgehammer finger walks

Actually, felt weak this workout. Had a small headache during training as well. Felt better after eating. I don't know about tomorrow, been going crazy this week. Maybe, time to cut the madness.
