    So Update

    Shoulder is still messed up which makes squats and bench difficult and has necessitated a change in bench technique

    That being said back to lifting heavy this week, going for a modified Westside template until the next comp, one day DE work (full body) one day ME work

    this week was sumo deadlift and bench press, took sumo up to 190kg for a single, groin felt tight from MMA the night before so called it a day, bench was a surprise first time lifting heavy in several months and with the new technique I did not expect 135kg but got it, equalled my all time best and the shoulder felt great...then spent 2hrs the next day working kimuras and omaplatas so shoulder wrecked again :confused: really need to see a professional

    Next regional comp is at our gym apparently - 29th April I think. Of course I'm being strongly encouraged to apply but didnt renew my GBPF membership, just prefer the training. I will come along to watch though :)

    MMA class 2hrs
    warmed up with 4 min rounds on the heavybag followed by 4 min round of skipping, repeated 3 times

    Then spent the class drilling entries into the clinch and knees (some of the stuff was so low percentage I got bored really fast)

    All being well i will now be able to drop this particular MMA class and take up studies again with my old sifu (difficult as friend teaches it and my partner also attends) but sometimes got to do whats right for you

    So hopefully I wll be doing 2 powerlifting sessions a week, one MMA and grappling class and one day every week or every other week TCMA…..that’s the plan see how it goes

    Might as well update this again still been training but had a bad injury which has kept me off heavy weights for 9 months

    Friday 4th Powerlifting
    First time back in the powerlifting gym lifting heavy for a long time due to injury so took it slow and easy

    Doubles and singles up to 140kg, then 2 x 5 back off sets at 120kg (felt easy enough)

    Doubles and singles up to 90kg 9weak as anything due to a shoulder and back injury lasting 8 months, feels better now but muscles are weak as anything) bench going from 135kg to 95 is a bit of a gut check 
    Then back of set of 14 reps at 70 kg, 3 x 10 at 60kg close grip

    Hexbar deadlift up to 190kg for singles. Then a lot of face pulls and rows to work my injured upper back

    Sunday 6th
    chinese boxing class

    Worked through hung gars 5 animals and 5 elements form, like this for stretching and strenghting my upper back lats and rhombus muscles. Worked applications of the form against jab cross etc and also hits the pads for a bit

    Monday 7th weights and MMA
    Light weights day started out with bench. Bar x 10, 40 x 10, 60 x 12 x s sets.
    Then 40kg close grip 3 x 10 sets.
    Then 40 kg 3 x 10 wide grip.
    Supersetted the wide grip work with 3 inch deadlifts 60 x 8, 90 x 8 x 4 sets.
    Then did speed squats 90 kg 3 3 x 5 sets. Speed squats should be done at the start but fitted it in at the end.

    Then the MMA class started
    Did 2 rounds of: 3 min skipping followed by 6 x 1 min rounds of conditioning work on the rings, rope and bands. First round was upper body and core, second round was all lower body.
    Then worked 5 minute rounds on the thai pads, first round warming up anything we wanted, worked on using the hooks to set up the low kicks and the overhand to set up body shots. Last 4 rounds were working hands into low kicks and counter kicking the partners standing leg as they responded with their own low kick.

    cheers recovery seem to be going ok, as long as i look after my posture and stretch the chest neck every few hours and strengthen the lats and mid back, but its the loss of strrength in the bench thats annoying it was my best lift lol :mad:

    9/1/13 submission grappling
    got there 30 minutes early to chat with the coaches and foam roll and stretch
    first hour was basic workm shrimps and bridges to warm up, followed by guard work: posture for guy on top, breaking posture and setting up the kimura for guy on bottom. Finished with the him bump sweep.
    second hour started with 10 minute flow roll, then followed with more advanced guard work, setting up the triangle from the scissors sweep, moving between triangle and arm bar etc. Also worked triangle from kimura when they try to get their head in to defend

    finished with 3 x 5min rolls first roll spent most of the time on the guys back, he had good wrist control and choke defense so switched to the arm bar, second roll hit the arm bar from the back again, nice arm triangle from mount and a rolling triangle from mount that i didnt get time to finish. Final round hit the arm bar from mount then got stuck in the lockdown for a while. All three rolls i started from butterfly guard and really worked on double underhooks and sweeping or taking the back.

    thanks shoulders feel better, just got to remember to NOT stop doing the work just because it doesnt hurt lol

    Tell me about it! It's too easy to skip prehab when things feel fine and then suffer the consequences down the line! My other big issue is not overdoing it rep wise in training because things feel fine only to wake up the next day with a grumbly shoulder - I'm slowly learning what I can and can't do, but there are mishaps on the way...

    it didnt help that i got kimured about 60 times yesterday during training :cry:

    Rhombus and traps are the main problem, they shut off when i bench because they got that messed up, hence the bench dropping from 135 to about 50kg lol, this work helps those muscles work again and takes the pain from the neck and shoulders so fingers crossed ill be competing in powerlifting again soon!

    what happened to your shoulder?

    also, tried front squats for the rhomboids? my posture improved almost overnight after doing a few front squat lockout holds (props to steve for originally recommending front squat holds to me) inside the cage, so that also works as a somewhat brute force approach, if your back can take it (obviously gotta mind the injuries when trying that sort of stuff), but both normal and anderson front squats work as well.
