I haven't been posting much on here for workouts. Just got back into bodybuilding program. Last 2 weeks was half assed Olympic lifting. Thinking about competing after the wedding. Maybe, king kong challenge &/or jiu jitsu. Shall see, hopefully my old bones hold up!

Recently, my weight has been around 280 lbs... Started to think, my new goal is to be around 265 lbs at the wedding...

Last Saturday, July 14th, decided to change my training after having a lukewarm mma session & watching catch wrestling world championship tournament. Saw those guys, thought to myself, I need something different...

So, recently, saw some posts from former elite level powerlifter Chris "Ox" Mason, was 1 power 1 Olympic. Which is main workout 1 powerlifting moment & 1 olympic weightlifting moment. Decided to train my spin on that concept... Not using crazy weight, but want to build up week by week...

1 hour of cardio both days

Monday:

5x10 KB swings

5x3 back squats

5x3 power cleans

3x10 posture chain shrugs/rows

3x didn't count reps walking louges bodyweight

5x1 flask pulls

Tuesday:

3x10 KB goblet squats

3x10 empty barbell overhead squats

3x10 KB side to side transfer

5x3 snatches

5x3 pause flat bench press

3x10 Country Crush bodyweight pull ups 

3x10 posture chain DB rows

3x10 Bulgarian bag spins each direction

5x1 wrist wrench deadlift

Tomorrow, probably, more towards cardio. Maybe, more kettlebell swings & sledgehammer finger walks. Thursday through Saturday, might be 3 mma & grappling sessions. Saturday afternoon, could be strongman training in backyard or going to sourland mountains for stone lifting with friends...

Forgot to mention, Tim Butler & Shawn Parisi asking me to partake in a grip event at a Delaware strength gym. One problem is it's around my birthday, so may have to skip due to family & friends... But, never know with me...

Sunday Funday!!!

Since, Saturday was volunteer moving day, decided to train. Wanted to do a lot, make up for yesterday. Probably, overkill today.

30 minutes on exercise bike

10 rounds on the heavy bag

30 minutes on exercise bike again

Outside training, some sled pulls, tire flips, keg toss for more strongman

Did some highland games, shot put, weight for distance using new technique, new caber named The Demon tried turning it, but not today

 

 

After that...

Flat bench press 5x10

Close grip pull ups bodyweight 3x10

... I'm done & was ready to eat

Hectic Monday!

5x1 box squats

5x3 hip cleans

Tried 2 hand flask pinch... struggled with that

Kinda just disappeared again... Still training, but more towards the MMA side. Did some grip training, but producing lackluster numbers in my opinion. Nothing really to my liking. Well, wad thinking the Delaware event & king kong... Instead of king kong, I'm more interested in a 2 day catch wrestling workshop on that weekend. Tim Butler & Shawn Parisi are still wanting me to go with them to Delaware. I don't know, still day after my birthday. Don't think I wanna compete around my birthday... But, shall see if nothing changes.

Never got them rated. When I was thinking about certification they're not rated so kept training them
