well i hurt my elbows last sunday doing muscle ups on these make shift rings at work. I got a really sharp pain in both of them and they hurt for a good 15 min.

I went to MMA the following monday and after a round of rolling it hurt again so I went to take it easy for the rest of the week and mostly did running and plyos.

Well it has been awhile since I have kept up with this log. Lots of stuff have happened that has thrown my life into a loop. I haven't been training at all for the past 3 months. just trying to pop workouts here and there. I have lost a lot of conditioning and lost about 5-7lbs so I am currently weighing in around 150. so I am looking to achieve a 15 - 20 pound weight gain.

I finally have access to an actual training facility instead of a park and my life has stabalized enough so I can start up again. Im going to try out Gant's hybrid program for 12 weeks and see where that goes. my first week is mostly spent finding out my limits.

Chris, glad you're back in the game!

Um, starting back in with FGB...not the best idea, but it seems you know that now.

Are you training at CF Works?

You are meeting Pukie way too often, my friend. FWIW.

And if I know you, you need to be getting more sleep...

I aquired a small umbilical hernia about month and a half ago. I havent been training a whole lot. lots of random BW stuff. I dont see having any extra money anytime soon to afford insurance let alone being able to pay for the surgery to take care of it. I did do CFT a couple weeks ago got a 740(245s/140p/355d).

I decided to start training again. I really want to become very proficient at my Olifting so I am starting the CA WODS. I also am planning on playing soccer again indoor and outdoor. Oh and I plan to start competing in olifting also.

2/23/2009 Monday

back squat(high bar, teabagging the floor) - 195x3,195x2,185x3,185x3,185x3
Snatch Deadlift - 135x3x3 Im trying to get used to the hook grip
push press - 115x5x5
pull up (6,8,10)x2
situp - 20kg kbx3x10

Working on a better sleep pattern I typically get 5 hrs a night.
