Bottom line, I love doing both, and both have their place in my training program. I can handle the volume of OLY+CF without a problem; I just can't handle the stress on my joints. We'll see where it goes from here.
I am in a similar situation. I have a BJJ tournament that I am planning on doing 4/12. I talked with Greg about it at the seminar and as of right now my plan is to do the CA WOD as rx'ed through the end of February (which would be the end of the next strength cycle) and then drop the O/Lifts to 2 days a week and totally focus on fight prep met con work.

For my BJJ training I am going to do 3 to 4 sessions a week with a private every 2 weeks. If I am feeling under recovered then I will drop a lifting session as required. I am confident that I will be able to make it through the next 5 weeks.

I will say that I believe that the O/Lifts are a perfect compliment to BJJ / Judo as so much of the power you need is generated through the hips. I will be following your log with interest for details.

Derek, I look forward to seeing your progress, as well.

I didn't realize how much balance I require in my training. It was hard O-lifting every day and watching some of the good CF workouts pass me by. I'm like a dog chasing a car with those things. As it stands, I plan to keep 3 days of OLY in my program (2 days OLY+CF, 1 day hardcore OLY). I'm also dedicating a day to gymnastics and tabata work. It may be wishful thinking, but it's something I look forward to.

Last week I reduced my fast days from 18 to 16 hours, so I can get a late breakfast. I added fruit back into breakfast (instead of the fat substitution), and I'm getting my performance back to where it was last fall.

It's a lot to play with, but I feel better than I have in weeks. We'll see where it goes from here.

1) 3 sets of
315# DL x 3 + 39.75" x 1

2) cross pullouts, seated with large band
5 sets x 3
After reading Steven's article again, I'm going to give this a go. A year is very optimistic. I'll do standing pullouts when I get the rings rigged properly. Seated was actually nice today because I got to feel the cross with my shoulders rolled forward and locked into place.

3) CF WOD
20 minutes of:
*5 HSPU
*10 L-pullups
*15 walking lunges
10 rounds + 5 HSPU
My L-pullups suck.

1) snatch up to max for the day
40, 50, 60, 65, 70, 75x, 75x, 72.5
Moved grip out ~3 inches on each side (to the end of the bar). This was very different today, but it's a good long term move because I OHS better this way.

2) CJ up to max for the day
40, 60, 80, 90, 95, 100x, 100
Disappointing.

3) BS
100x3x5
I'm starting over. No belt. Try to sit on my ankles on every lift. Go up 5 kg per week.

4) Ring pullups
3x10

I'm getting back to some strength lifts. Things have been a little out there since before Christmas. I'm going to spend the next few months on OLY, strength, and gymnastics in addition to CF.

We have an OLY meet at the gym in March, "666." Going 6-for-6 with PRs in each earns you a 6-pack. Can't pass that up. I'm going to OLY 3 days a week, squat 3 days a week, deadlift twice a week, and CF the rest of the time. Sounds easy, doesn't it?

FYI since you're used to the programming here being rep:sets.

I wrote all my programming in that article as sets:reps. Just so you know... 3 sets of 5 reps... and so on.

I'm pretty sure I made a note of that or told Greg to make a note of that, but it may have not gotten in the final product! o_O

Steven, thanks for the note. I realized that after reading the progression a few times. I did 5 sets of 3 reps as a break-in. The real program starts next week.

2 hours Judo with Ray Silverstrand Sensei, visiting Rokudan. Awesome!

1) snatch
45kg x 5 reps
50 x 5
55 x 5
57.25 x 1
60 x 1
62.5 x 1
65 x 1
67.5 x 1
70 x 1


2) "Nasty Girls"
3 rounds for time of:
50 Squats
7 Muscle-ups
135 pound Hang power cleans, 10 reps
13:18
Rounds were 3:58, 5:22, 3:57. I really p***** out on squats and MUs in round 2. Banged out 5 consecutive MUs in rd 3, which is a PR for me.

1) snatch
5s:47.5, 52.5, 57.5
1s: 62.5, 62.5, 65, 67.5, 70, 72.5
Clerical error. Should've started with 60.

2) C&J
5s:75, 80, 85
1s:87.5, 90, 92.5, 95, 97.5, 100

3) Front squats
80 x 5 x 3
I didn't know what to pick for 5s. This was an easy starting weight, but it will catch up soon enough.

1) deadlift x 1 + 40" box jump x 3
365, 375, 385

2) "Mary"
8 rds + 5 HSPU
I was completely worn out after 10 minutes. HSPU went well, but the pullups and one-legged squats were drudgery. Form is improving on one-legged squats though.
