Those were 2 really nice days.

How are you healing up from all the tournament training? I went to the doctor last night and I have a stress fracture in the 2nd metatarsal in my right foot. Completely and totally annoying. He said nothing to do for it except don't be a hero. Also I am officially on strict doctors orders for no running for at least a month. That made me laugh. I said I think we are good on that one.

Derek, I'm healing well because I haven't done much high intensity judo. I've done more teaching and working with people than I have trading throws. I have the same toe issue I had at your place. That will take a year to fully heal.

Today
Sore all over.

Threw the 16# shot put 20-25 times. Got some film to look at.

Gant!!
Are you keeping the assistance move to a minimum due to grappling?

Sorry for the delay, Robb. Congrats on the book.

My assistance work is particular to the season. During judo tourney season, I don't do any assistance work. In fact I do two lifts each on Mon and Thur and use Tue and Fri for conditioning (complexes, prowler work, sprints).

I've been preparing for a Highland Games this weekend. I've added an extra press and front squat in, and I've been doing pressing assistance. I spend the rest of my time throwing.

My plan from there was to prepare for strongman. But they just announced the events for Dallas (platinum plus), and the damn log clean and press for light weights is 290#. I'm out.

I'll probably go back to off-season judo 5/3/1, which is the big lifts plus some added pressing and minimal conditioning (I get a decent bit on the mat). I do some ring work in the summer because they're hanging by my swimming pool. Other than that, it's beer and hot dogs.

Nothing to report this week. I'm doing HG this weekend. So:

Mon/today:
12kg KB WFD
24 kg KB WFD
24kg KB WFH

Tue/tomorrow:
16# shot (stationary and glide)
LH work (with a couple bars from the gym)

I also started the 200 squats routine for the hell of it. I'm not doing any real conditioning right now, and I have done air squats in over a year. I did 100 straight for my pretest without much problem, so I don't suck too bad. I'm starting on week 3 and will try the program out (basically a GTG) before recommending it to some of the judo peeps who don't weight train. I won't update it here, though.

Throwing came to a halt today. Got in some WFH. Started on the LWD throws and tore a dime-sized chunk out of my hand. You'd think I had just done some kipping pullups or something. Cut the skin off and put some alcohol on it (which felt great). I can throw stones tomorrow, but hammer is out. It should have a good layer of skin by Sunday that I can tape over for the Games.

Nothing. Did a couple hundred squats, swam in the pool, and put cream on my cut-up hand. I won't do anything until the Games on Sunday.
