Rehab Day 5 Sunday August 19 Copied from post on Sunday

I revisited Russ's Terrible Workout.

1 minute all out hardest gear.



plus 100 single unders



plus 200 yard sprint, down touch the grass and back.



plus 15 kb snatches left hand only. You can mix this up however you want I used a 1 pood kb with my left hand only since the right is still broken.



4 times rinse and repeat with 1 minute rest keep time for each round.

My times, not too impressive but very fun.

Round 1 3:42
Round 2 4:02
Round 3 3:48
Round 4 3:33

Rehab Day 7 August 22

Glute Bridge 15 seconds X 3
Samson Stretch 10 seconds per leg X 3

52 LB KB Lunges 6 per leg X 5
36 LB KB 20" step ups 10 per leg X 3

4 Times
5 High Pulls 52 LB KB
5 Swings 52 LB KB
100 Yard Farmers walk 52 LB KB

5 60 - 90 Second Intervals all out on trainer with 60 - 90 seconds rest

Everything felt really good. When I got done with the last set of Farmers Walks my forearm was on fire! I can tell that my grip is the limiting factor in the heavy swings, pulls and farmers walk.

BJJ PM
Fundamentals class, I really just warmed up with the group then watched them go through standing guillotine and guillotine defense. I did do a few armbars from the mount.

Rehab Day 8 August 23

Glute Bridge 15 seconds X 3
Samson Stretch 10 seconds per leg X 3
15 S/U's unanchored feet 3

Front Squats
This is the first loading I have done since my arm was splinted. I used the bar on the shoulder with the arms bent back in over the top of the bar technique.

45 X 6
95 X 6
115 X 6
135 X 6
145 X 5
155 X 5
165 X 2

All the squats felt great full depth really tight all the way through my entire body. Only concern was on the 155's I really felt like I was engaging my arm on the latter reps, that is why I only did 2 on 165.

Plank Hold 30, 45 and 55 seconds
V-Up Holds 15, 30, 45 seconds
B/E Holds 15, 25

3 rounds of:

10 16kg KB deadlift high pulls

10 16kg KB snatches

then 3 rounds of:

10 16kg KB row's

Rehab Day 10 August 26

Did progressive loading on squats from BW up to Xvest, Jr, KB and 25 LB Weight belt. Here is the video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-HO9yipbXI

Did 4 50 yard sled drags with 90 lb's and carried 52 LB KB.
This was actually harder than I imagined.

Today was originally just going to be messing around but ended up being pretty darn tough.

Rehab August 28

Rest Day Oh Glorious Rest Day!

Because of my wifes new schedule, the kids going back to school and me not traveling this past 10 days I realized last night I have worked out somewhere around 10 days in a row. Whoops. I was absolutely physically crushed last night when I went to bed. I got in a solid 8:30 hours of sleep and am feeling pretty darn spiffy today.

What I have done most significantly during this rehab period besides purchase some really cool new fitness toys is to get my diet dialed in. I am focusing on a paleo / low carb lifestyle. In the last 2 weeks I have had an insignificant amount of processed carbs, I can't say none because I am sure I have had something. The only carbs that have a real impact would be fruit and I eat that PWO most mornings and sometimes as a snack at 10:00 am.

I am in countdown mode to my physical and follow up visit to determine if my arm is healed. I am setting the clock right now at T Minus 8 Days and Counting. I keep telling myself don't use the arm just let it heal.
