    go easy on those squats man. theyre not necessary with a little extra time and a few differnt exercises you cna skip squats altogeter and still get the same results. without the undue wear and tear on your knees.

    i had a lot of knee problems that were alleviated by doing good form, ass to grass squats. its one of the single best movements for recruiting massive amounts of muscle fibers. also, the fat burning and heightened metabolic state induced by activating all these muscle fibers make squats important.

    • Wrestling practice.
    • Later on...
    • 5x5 Squats 135 pounds
    • 5x5 Bench Press 85 pounds
    • 1x5 Deadlifts 135 pounds
    • Pull Ups w/ about 10 pounds weight - 5-4-4-2-2
    • Shoulder shrugs 5x5 (65 pounds on each arm on 2 sets. 55 pounds on each arm on 3 sets)

    I just bought membership today. All the exercises were free weights (yay ).

    Squats was tough, I might deload so I can progress faster. Because there is no way I can add on 5 pounds every workout on squats. Bench press was easy. Deadlifts was really tough! I actually felt a bit lightheaded after the deadlifts. For the pull ups I estimated I was carrying around 10 pounds. That is because I had a lot of clothes on and some gigantic pair of sneakers (size 13 I think.) lmao. Shoulder shrugs were too much, my grip isn't strong enough, it always gave out.

    And oh yea.. the only way I can get my squats in is on a smith machine. That totally sucks!

    I'm planning to change around my workout a little. I am going to add in the Overhead Press and maybe take out Bench Press for Barbell Rows. What do you guys think?

    • 5x5 Squats 85 pounds
    • 5x5 Bench Press 90 pounds
    • 5x5 Snatch Grip Deadlifts 115 pounds
    • 5x5 Overhead Press 65 pounds
    • 5x5 Barbell Rows 85 pounds

    Man, I'm so surprised by my numbers. switching from the smith machines to free weights showed me just how weak I actually am.

    Anyways, I found a squat rack in the gym. So i can do free weight squats. At the free weights every thing was more challenging. Squats and bench press weren't hard really. I'll keep adding in 5 pounds every workout easily. I was wondering why the dead lifts were so freaking easy today. I was suppose to do 140 pounds not 115 lolz. I'll go to either 140 or 145 pounds next dead lift and bring the set back to just 1. Barbell Rows were alright too.

    Looking forward to next workout. Might switch barbell rows for pull ups, but as of now I'm undecided.

    Thanks for the encouragement. Rehab will be fine but not wrestling or doing BJJ is going to really suck.

    • Wrestling practice
    • Later that day...
    • 5x5 Squats 90 pounds
    • 5x5 Bench Press 95 pounds
    • 3x5 Snatch Grip Deadlifts 120 pounds
    • 5x5 Overhead Press 65 pounds
    • 5x5 Barbell Rows 90 pounds
    • 4xQ Pull Ups
    • 10 minute run (high intensity with couple breaks here and there)

    I increased the weight by 5 pounds for all the workouts except the OHP (overhead press). 65 pounds was more than I can handle, it was really challenging. Hopefully I can add 5 pounds next time. Squats were easy, I'll keep moving up in squats. Bench press was also easy, I'll keep moving up on that. I didn't do 5 sets of SGD (Snatch Grip Deadlifts) due to the shoulder blade pain. I didn't want to injure myself or anything.

    And for anyone who doesn't know what the snatch grip deadlifts are for, they are to strengthen your grip. Anyways, Barbell rows were fine too. Pull Ups were pretty hard, since I haven't done them and the pull up bar they have is pretty wide apart. I did a 10 minute run with a couple breaks here and there. Going up to about 10 MPH for time. Didn't have any specifics just kept going until I was exhausted. I can't really do interval running on the treadmill as well as I can on a track.

    About the shoulder blade pain, I don't even know whether the pain is my shoulder blades or actually on my rib cage. But what I do know the first time I felt the pain was when I was doing my OHP so I assume I got this pain from the OHP.

    What I want to improve on:


    I will work on my stamina to keep up my aggressiveness in the match. Often I would be really aggressive around the first period and going on the second and third I'll slow down. I want to increase my stamina so I could keep up my aggressivenes for a longer period of time.

    I will/am working on my overall body strength for obvious reasons. To name a few they would be: legs, back, shoulders, shoulders, grip and arms.

    I need to work on my reaction time and sprawling when someone takes a shot. I also need to work on top position a bit more because I neglected it recently, and having more set-ups in neutral positions. I have to work on being good at getting out of pinning situations and scissors/legs.
