Level 1 Gains

I haven’t had doughnuts in several years.

I am taking suggestions for focusing by the way so I’m all ears. Preferably 3 days a week.

Donuts are nasty dude.

That’s not how muscle mass and strength work.

Found a Jiu Jitsu gym that’s five miles from the house. Has stellar reviews. They give experienced practitioners a trial period as well as people with no experience (you get a month free if you have 0 experience!).

Best part of all is they have a 6:00 AM class Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Plus open mat days.

I’ve had a serious itch lately. I’ve missed grappling, training, two-a-days, etc.

Thinking about entering NAGA next year.

@Heimdallr I don’t know what your goals are, but if you want to get from beginner to “advanced” then All-Pro will get you there the safest and steadiest.

There is no deload period due to the medium and light days during the week. Plus, and I can’t remember the specifics, but the saying goes that if you increase your workload by one rep you’re increasing your max by a pound? Something like that. It’s broscience but it’s somewhat of an accurate measurement.

You increase your weight 10% every five weeks. The reps increase by one every week until you pass your test at 12 reps. Then you reset to 8 reps and increase the weight.

That routine will blast every muscle in your body, including your core and posterior chain. Plus it gives you four days a week to train flexibility, endurance, power, speed, sports, etc.

Hey I’ll get back to you and @sgtawesomesauce. I’m hiking My Thursten (the most prominent peak near Hill Air Force Base 12k ft). Will reply this evening if I’m not to beat. Should have some good birds eye of the entire installation.

Who needs a dojo when you have the Green Berets.

Relying on others to defend me? No thanks.

That’s what the 2nd amendment is for. Explosives are not excluded.

None of this is related to this topic. The lounge is open. Thanks.



Wish me luck.
