Training Log 5/7 – 5/9



I went to bed pretty late last night and had to force myself out of bed for wrestling class. And I arrive to Gracie South right on time to find class canceled. Quite disappointing.

2pm – 3pm

Cardiac Power Intervals. 7 reps. I had to force myself onto Jacob’s Ladder for each one and it was hell for 7, 2 minute intervals, but it was worth it.



I have to go to work early for mother’s day and can’t train today for the first time in weeks. Whatever, I need time off to recover.



9am – 10am

BMT with Amy in the morning. Pushing myself on every rep.

11am – 1pm

Sparring with Gabe and Chris at St. Pete. Round robin style on me, of course. My best sparring yet. 3, 3 minute rounds with 30 seconds of rest.

Afterwords, get some fast twitch work in, ab work, and stretch and head home.

9am – 10am

BMT reps with Amy in the morning!

11am – 1pm

Wrestling reps with Gabe and then MMA sparring rounds with Ethan, one of Gabe’s fighters who has great wrestling shots. I have better technique and experience so I get the better of him, but he definitely pushes me and gives me a good workout.

Afterwards, we hit some deadlifts, a circuit, and some mobility work!



I hurt my knee yesterday and my entire body is beat up. I haven’t got a good night’s sleep in so long, I can’t remember. I decide to really take the day off to recover.

Training Log 4/29 – 5/3



9am – 10am

BMT class with Amy, felt really good during class, but I must have been tired because I started slowing down and crashing towards the end of class.

I was going to do some intense cardiac power intervals after class, but my elbows were very sore and I was feeling exhausted, and decided against it. I will have to fit them in tomorrow or sunday.



11am – 12pm

I show up to wrestling at Gracie South. My elbow has been really bugging me and I decide to just do technique today to not aggravate it. Really awesome stuff from coach Adam Kantor.

1pm – 2pm

Unfortunately I did not do my cardiac power intervals yesterday so I forced myself to do them today. 6, 2 minute sprint intervals on Jacob’s Ladder, I am barely able to walk properly afterwards. But I did it!
