Wow I didn't even notice. What a milestone. I would like to thank the academy and all the little people who helped make all of this possible.

Or maybe I shouldn't sit in front of a computer most days all day long....

I got some great video of Jr today and will edit and post it tonight or tomorrow. He took 10th overall. It was a tough meet for scoring but I was pleased with most everything he did.

Lots of fun today. The clean was super easy I just didn't want to push too hard since I knew I was moving up on the DL. The bench is frustrating it seems I have been stuck here for a while. I get stuck right about 2 boards off the chest. The DL is moving right along.

193 LB's as of yesterday morning. Seeing people DL has the same effect on me as well.

March 3 Tuesday PM

MMA

Felt really good to train with my teammates again. Got in a solid 90 minutes and felt strong all the way through. I definitely have put on some fat in the mid section or at least it felt that way tonight. Worked all techniques getting up off the ground or doing takedowns.

Warmup was death by cardio, Yeah!

March 4 Wednesday

Apparently I jammed my right thumb really bad last night at MMA. I knew I stuffed it once on a takedown but didn't think any more of it. It woke me up three times last night and was nice and swollen this morning. What a pain, literally...

D W/U

Rack DL's off 3" boxes 45 X 5, 135 X 5, 225 X 5, 275 X 5, 295 X 5, 345 X 3, 345 X 1
all with straps since I can't make a proper fist with my right hand.

Bench 45 X 5, 95 X 5, 135 X 5, 185 X 5 X 3, 205 X 1
DB Row 50 X 8 X 4

KB Snatch 5 minutes W/ 16 KG KB, 11 reps per hand and switch. Made it through 5 rounds per hand and 5 minutes was up on the 9th rep of the 5th set on my left hand. So I finished my 11. That means 107 reps in 5 minutes. Next week more reps.
