Hey pizdoff...one thing you may want to try for counting the caloris is www.fitday.com this is what I use and it helped me out a lot. Not sure if you figured out the calorie counting this just read something about you needing to count calories and not looking forward to it.
Jan 24, 2004
Medium stretching in the morning.
That whey supplement helps a lot, got it Thurs.
Last night was crazy horrible, I was sneezing a lot and feeling like crap.
I feel a lot better this morning, 8 hours sleep.
Seemed to have strained my knee joints a bit on fri, but they are better now.
Definately noticing a loss of ROM in my legs from all the muscle growth....
Heh, thanks brian. I actually DO have a fitday account, but I hate entering stuff into it...
Still getting life in order before I figure out my diet, things ARE returning to "normal" though.
Things are returning to normal eh?
For fvcks sake as soon as I say that.....
Someone close to me, just recently told me they are taking these meds...and it is making them sick as a side effect.
I have a random nosebleed in the changeroom as I'm getting ready to work out.
There is ****ing blood on the punching bag.
I tear open a recent wound from the forces on my hand, don't think I got any on the bag though.
I have just sprained my right wrist, the same one I fractured and sprained in the summer, again......
I just got changed shortly after that, and just went home.
Wasn't in the mood for weights....
Everything else is fine but I don't know how to take the news about the meds this person is taking.....
In other news.....I have recovered VERY quickly from my Friday night bad crappy cold case. I haven't otherwise kept good health in the last year.
At least I am fairly self-satisfied with my appearance right now.
Chest and arms could use a couple more inches though.
So no panic here concerning my body anyways.....though the wrist IS hurting and annoying.
ROM in wrist has returned, still weaker than before though.
My sleep habits have been so messed up.
Slept at 6am the night before and 4am this morn.
Feel weak, crappy, and tired.
Doing a bit more cardio than is helpful for a bulk.
Hmmmmm, Judo and wrestling comp at the university Atheletic Centre.
2 min stationary bike
1*0.5*70 1/2 rep bench press. My wrist gave out damnit...
3*10*120,135,135 Seated bench press. 135 PR.
3*10*20 Weighted crunches. 20 lbs PR.
4*10*200,400,460, 500 Standing calve raise. 400 lbs was previous PR.
Crappy workout. Wrist hurts. Punching bag room locked.
What kind of wrist problems do you have?
BEFORE it was a fractured right wrist, then "dislocated" left wrist.
These didn't heal due to my silliness.
Then last Sunday I sprained my right wrist on the bag. Don't give me advice about the bag I know what I am doing, a freak accident it was.
Hmm, I missed putting in a short short wrist session on the 29th.
Oh, I don't know the first thing about boxing, but I was curious because I've had tendonitis in both hands, and it feels like its flairing up in the left hand again.
"Don't give me advice about the bag I know what I am doing, a freak accident it was."
That wasn't meant to be said in spite by the way.
I'm a "cool" calm guy. (COULD YA TELL!?!?! )
Beer, martial arts and slippery surfaces do not mix.
Sat night, I got back to residence at 1:30 am after seeing UFC 46 at a bar.
I went tray-bogganing with some friends. Then showed them some grappling attacks and defenses.
I showed the school yard trip aka O-soto geri to some people.
I planted my left foot, stepped around him with my right, then slipped on the deep packed snow we were on. So he fell on my extended leg and twisted it a bit sideways.
So......****....same bad knee. Good stuff.
Doesn't look like I'll be fighting on the 15th. Too busted up right now and I don't need to further my injuries.
Well, I couldn't use the bag room because a shotokan karate class was using it.
I bowed as I entered, politely asked the instructor, and he politely declined, saying it would disturb his class, which it would. I politely left.
I forgot my gloves anyways...
Saw a ninjitsu guy working out in his black gi, nice guy, we talked a bit.
Between sets of course....
30 secs on stationary bike - wasn't very comfortable and I was warmed up already
Gave my girl a massage before I came to warm up my hands.
4*10,8,6,10*135 Seated bench press machine PR
3*10*100 Lat Pull Down machine PR
2*10,4*100 Seated rows, machine PR
4*10*250,500,500,520 Standing calf raises machine PR
A shorter session. But I liked my intensity level.....and I was on the verge of throwing up. I've been really pushing it hard recently.

Feb. 06, 2004 Friday.
20 min bag work. Medium to high intensity level. Semi-satisfied at preformance.
Focus on close range elbow strikes and power generation.
Was semi-drowsed by depressing WW2 movie in class right before.
wow man have you ever thought about taking a month off of the whole fighting/punching bag thing and just do nothing but heal up and lift weights? seems like your body's tryiing to tell you to simmer down...
but then again, i dont know you well enough to provide "good" reccomendations.
good job and good luck!
-Girls like big strong men, all the other men has to find a niche or a thing they supposedly love, you know...like saving whales or reading books, to get laid.
-Look..first I am scared little freezing virgin munk, but then I bare my self and I am nothing like a freezing virgin!
-Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke, he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today.

and I love to hit the bag, great stress relief
i DID try to limit the punching....more emphasis on other stuff but i want to compete/fight/spar hard on the 15th.....
Feb 8th workout
4*10,11,7,10*90,135,150,150 Seated bench press machine. PR
2*10*20 Decline crunches weighted.
2*10*100 Lat pull downs
2*10,10*80,90 Pec Fly PR
3*10,10,6*90,100,110 Read Pec Fly PR
3*10,10,0.5,0.5*300,500,600,600 Standing calf raise. Failed at 600lb PR. Oh well.
Kickbacks to bug my girl about how my solid my ass is!
I worked to improve my max lifts again. I had some nausea after a couple hard sets.
Like my stomach was hollowing itself out and wanted the stuff to come out my mouth.
Almost passed out a couple times.
My girl worked out with me, though we were doing separate routines.
Feb 15th is coming up (bunch of us getting together to spar), I need to train for endurance. I am pumped to see old friends and make new ones. Beating on each other really brings you closer to one another. Er.....as long as it is in a friendly manner. As I discovered on the bag I had very crappy aerobic and anaerobic endurance.
25 Min bag session with a short rest to hold the bag for someone else.
Focus on punching, wrist seems semi-fine.
3*12*70,70,60 Leg Extensions
3*12*80 Leg Curls
3*12*200 Leg Press
2*12*300 Calf Raise
2*12*80 Kickbacks each leg
2*15*10 Wrist curls each hand
2*20*BW Hindu Squats
I should stop being such a pussy with those hindu squats....I could have done more, but I guess collapsing in front of all these girls....and a few guys would make me look less cool.
How many hours of sleep?
Ugh, I did most of an all-nighter trying to work on school work.
Really felt like sh1t.
One comment I got "You look really really tired."
Didn't/wasn't able to work out....
Too tired/messed up, only two real meals the whole day.
Back in Toronto, I fight Sunday.
Weight 173.5 lbs. Gone up a bit.
Bodyfat down a bit too, doing a bit of cardio once in a while.
Will do some more cardio/ light callisthenics on the morrow.
Hmmmm, Valentines day. :#
Slept 7 hours 45 min. Most sleep in a row I've gotten in a long while.
Woke up feeling good. Need to get a mouthguard still.
Later on.....got a mouthguard, will play with it tonight and get it set.
Good full body stretch session before I sleep as well...and wake up earlier to do the same.
I'm lazy so I'll just repost from www.bullshido.net
I had ONLY three "matches." For some reason people were way too social.
At the last meet we trained for 6 hours, this one was ONLY three hours......with more than twice the people there.
Slightly disappointing day training wise, and I was lightly injured in my first actual contact match too. And in the first grappling match the guy fell on my nose with his shoulder and made that bleed for 10 min.

Shumagorath (Grappling) - Hard to takedown a bigger guy with some grappling knowledge isn't it?
My legs have definately gotten stronger since the last time I played around but my guard game isn't good. You need to work on your passes.
Also, workout more to gain weight. And strength...
Saba (sp? SubTerran's friend) - (SubTerran pass along my thoughts too please.)
Disclaimer: I'm coming in here with pretty much only a wrist injury slowing me down.
I was still a little hesitant to throw combinations with my hands.
I took a nice jab to the chest when I was off balance and that knocked me down but I was up right away. Throw harder punches! I'm not sure you would have hit me at all with the combination of my head movement but you tapped me a couple times with the huge 16 oz oven mitts and the headgear. Which adds 4-6' ? of reach! Though I do have poor vision I could still see the punches and moved my head slightly to get out of the way. The head punches barely affected me.
Yes, yes I know I barely hit you with punches but you kept running backwards.
That time caught your leg, I lifted upwards, so that is part of the reason why you went so far back.
Those whipping leg kicks I used on you SHOULD NOT be blocked with your forearm.
Lift your leg up and take it on the calf/shin.
First time for me using 16 oz gloves and first time in a long time I've used headgear.
I don't understand why I was gaggin on my mouthguard though, I was totally fine last night when I was setting it.
I got a cut probably from your toenail on my left forearm, I suggest cutting your nails before sparring to reduce the possibility of small scratches like this. Saves your nails too. I did the day before...
I hope the clips have audio so I can hear those smacking leg kicks I did on you!
Hope to see you on here and in person sometime soon again.
Edit: Oh yeah, learn more grappling and grappling defenses.
Repulsive Monkey (Grappling) - Wear.....like different shorts or something. I got my fingers jammed and hooked in your belt loops a couple times!
BE MORE AGGRESSIVE! You have the skills but it seems like you don't want to win enough!
You can train with your girl too!
And I want to see some capoeira takedowns on me!
I went to sleep at around 8pm and woke up 6 am today. Oh my!
Left knee stiff. Right toe (hurt AGAIN!) weird from Saba blocking with forearm twice hard. Right ankle stiff from misplaced kicks?
Pulled left bicep from grappling with Shuma. Odd.
Sore neck and back from grappling with RM.
i hate headgear
what were the sizes of these guys
I am AMINAL
Disclaimer, I'm not training right now, so anyone actually training has an advantage.
150, Judo orange? belt, +black belt shotokan karate (no laffin!)
160, Goju-Ryu karate, pretty newb
160, wrestler, Tai chi (which does have good stand up grappling)
The MAN to beat didn't/wouldn't spar. I know he had broken a guy's arm recently and wasn't comfortable with his control. Good for us, he was working the pads with another guy and has incredible power.
Seem to be still gaining.
Cutting to a slow bulk now and maybe reduce some bodyfat %.
Left knee, left hip flexor, left shoulder, right wrist, right ankle still damaged from Sunday.
On the other hand, 4 of the coworkers at the place I'm filling in at have noticed I have gotten bigger. Ouch, my DAMNED knee!
