Entry #442

Today was a milestone as far as lower-body training is concerned. Everything was done light, but it's a jump in progress compared to what I was previously capable of post-back trauma.

ME upper-body (though not actually max effort)

Heavy bag warm-up - I had to work in with the old man. He was a beast on it today.

Box squats:
5 X 3
135, 185, 225, 225, 225 lbs.

Dumbell lunges:
3 X 8
75 lb. dumbbells

Good mornings:
5 X 8
95 lbs.

Chop crunches:
3 X 20

CoC grip work

A good precursor to what the following weeks will bring.

My knuckles were so sore from all of the bag work I've been doing that I could barely close the gripper. I'll spend the next few days shadowboxing and focusing on kicks to give them a break. You're next, shins.


  1. Yeah, those grippers are no good after bag work.  Best bet is to work them on your off days.
    Glad to see that your back is getting better.
