Restarted training #JiuJitsu yesterday after a long time off. With Christmas and new year break wrapping up and kids and wife returning to work, I hope I can make it routine again.
Today I feel like a truck ran me over, so it has to be a gradual buildup.
We learned 3 variations of no-gi half guard passes.
Madcow 5x5 Day 1 with same weights as last week.
I plan to start training #bjj 5 times per week soon, after new year probably. In the mean time I'll do some elliptical/treadmill in the evenings to build up cardio.
Sleep stress was much better without alcohol and my body battery improved.
I'm not sure what program to follow so I'm defaulting to Madcow 5x5 which is what I used to do but stopped in July due to back and neck issues. I've lost 25lbs since and worked on hip, quad, and hamstring mobility.
My left hand still hurts, especially during bench press, but its physical therapy at this point.
My hand still hurts but is healing well. I was able to do my mobility stretching routine today, and hold on to the barbell for all major lifts (no weights). I think I should be able to restart Jiu-Jiutsu training and weight lifting in a week or two.
"push" weight lifting followed by stretching and mobility.
My knee is hurt so I can't do Jiu-Jitsu. Instead, I did a simple weigh lifting routine: 3 sets of 10 reps with super low weights since I have not lifted in months
- bench press
- seated shoulder press
- skull crushers
Hoping to be back on the mats next Monday, but will have to see if my knee cooperates.
