    Pre made meals are a must. Protein shakes get me through the day, along with chicken breasts/rice.

    Lot of PR's in here lately, regardless.

    A big plus to the speed day in Westside is its a GREAT chance to do form work.

    Ufc 101



    Went to UFC 101 here in Philly last night with a couple of friends that I used to train with at one of Pelligrino's gyms. Kurt did really well controlling the fight all 3 rounds. Everyone was pleased with his peformance. There was a huge contingency chanting "Batman!" which is his nickname, and the whole crowd got into it. The undercard had some pretty good fights, and a few local kids who went 3/3.
    Onto the bigger fights. Amir Sadallah totally got robbed in his first round knockout loss. Unfortunately on the replay, the angle that the ref had was from behind Hendricks and he couldnt see that the punches were actually missing/grazing the top of Amir's head. The takedown was suspect too as it was more of a pulldown rather than from the punch. Whatever though, shi t happens.
    Not much to say about the Griffin/Silva fight as everyone pretty much knew how that was going to go. He was done before the knockout. The punch was an amazing short right shot from the hip, almost a jab, and connected right on the sweetspot. Silva is just a beast. Griffin being one of my favorite fighters, I was pissed how he reacted by running out of the rink immediately and not giving Silva his props. I know he was pissed at himself, but its totally disrespectful to Silva and the organization.
    BJ Penn/Kenny Florian was a good technical fight in the first 2 rounds. Makes for a boring fight, but was interesting in watching both of their techniques against eack other. Florian was pretty gassed by the third, and BJ pounced on the opporunity, wore him down, got full guard and pounded. Once he got his back, it was all over. Kenny had nothing left and it was only a matter of time before the rear naked choke sunk in. Great win for BJ.

    All in all, it wasn't a bad card for the first one in Philly, but I wouldve liked to have seen one more bigger name fight on it. It was a great crowd, almost selling out, so hopefully Dana will bring the UFC back to Philly again in the future.

    Wow...I just heard that the reason that Griffin stormed out of the ring was because he dislocated his jaw and seeked medical attention. Amazing sh it by Silva

    Great floor press Brian. A lot of small PR's add up major progress when you look back.

    Another small PR today. I felt good at the start, but after my 405 set, I started getting major pain in my left shoulder. After my last set, the pain was so bad, I couldnt even grip a 10lb DB. It radiated down to my elbow and just killed. Its more than likely my RC as its been injured off and on from benching, and being tight, squatting low doesnt help. So a lot of ice and advil for today. I have to work in more stretching. Since I couldnt finish the workout I had planned, I just hopped on a few leg machines and called it a day.

    * After speed bench, my left RC was on fire again, affecting my whole arm. I tried the Mil Presses, but the first rep of 185 sent a streak of pain up my arm. So I cut my losses there and didnt want to injure it anymore. So again I had to rearrange what I wanted to do and decided not to do any lockout work(was going to do some 4 brd work) and did some stuff that really wouldnt affect my shoulder too much. More ice and advil when I get home.

    So I'm looking at maybe 2 IPA events coming up on Nov 21 and Dec 5. I would like to do at least one of them as a full meet. Im still a weakling when it comes to Skwats and Duds, but it would give me numbers to work off of for next years meets. The other I would do Bench only, probably the Dec 5 meet. Im still working in a single ply APT Apex, but I would still have a chance at winning against multiplys since the amatuer records in 198 submaster are pretty low.(505 I think). Whatever, I just want to get in a meet and compete again.

    You think you'd recover enough after the full-power to do the bench only? I say screw it and do 'em both. Set a bench record while you're at it. I'm getting a little antsy myself to do a meet, there is supposed to be a local Push/Pull in late October, and an APF Raw meet in December that I want to do, but they're only "tentative" so far so who knows if they go down.

    Yeah only 2 weeks apart, but like you said ,screw it. I should be OK to do just Bench though. It would be cool to set a record in that short of time too

    225x5
    *add 2 brd*
    275x3

    365x0 *see notes.....again

    DB Press

    120s x7

    H.S. Dip Machine
    4 plates per side X10x2

    T Bar Row

    3 Plates x 15(close grip)

    Rope Pressdowns s/s Miniband Pullaparts
    150x15x2 s/s 15x3x2

    Shoulder WAS feeling pretty good today. On the 365 set, I thought I would bring the weight down faster than usual(im usually pretty slow on the descent). I brought it down pretty quick, and when I went to reverse it, I felt like I was totally off key with it and basically dumped it forward. Of course in the process I lit my shoulder up again...so that was it for that today. I was so pissed that I went to the DBs and set a 2 rep PR with 100s(B$tch mutha fuka!) Been wanting that one for awhile.
