    You don't track carbs in your macro count? I just see calories, protein, and fat. Or do you assume it's a really low number because you're basically not eating any significant carb sources apart from that wrap thing?

    Mmmm fatty salmon. Your big hunks o' meat have definitely inspired my own culinary ventures later--I'm having steak for dinner tonight.

    I'm also somewhat... reassured? to see that your weight fluctuates as it does. I thought it was just us women who had that happen. I suppose it's based on your fluctuating carb levels. Obviously, it doesn't reflect primarily fat gain or loss in this time frame.

    No I've never really tracked carbs (not even when doing keto-like dieting) just track protein, fat and calories and can extrapolate the carbs in grams if I want to see where they are by the remaining cals minus pro & fat. I typically run my carbs lower than most since they just make me tired and hungry and I prefer protein foods more anyway. I typically include my higher carb foods later in the day near bed, they help with sleep and if I'm sleeping I don't get hungry from them .

    Salmon is sooo good. I found about 20lbs of fresh 2-3lb fillets for 1/2 price and froze them. Its farmed salmon (much higher fat content than wild), but its delicious. Nothing but coarse ground salt on it and oven baked. The best it the leftover re-heated in skillet to get the skin crispy, then I eat the skin too, otherwise the dog eats salmon skin and my egg yolks when I make a big omelet with 10 whites and 2 whole eggs. His coat is blindingly shiny .

    Ughh, yea I do fluctuate a bit, I've been gaining actual weight though too. I'm feeling a little fluffy even though I'm still reasonably lean. When I'm not dieting "hard" little things tend to slip into my intake and don't get tracked. I bought a 56oz can of mixed nuts a few weeks ago on amazon really cheap (daily deal thing) and aside from my daughter eating some with me I think I ate them all in a couple of weeks (just a small handful at a time). I need to get my weight back down or at least curb my intake. My lifting belt is pretty tight on my normal hole so I have picked up some fluff. Since I'm working through this hammy strain (its doing a little better) I figure now would be a good time to try to run a deficit until around Christmas (eat like a pig again then) and start off the new year not needing to diet hard for 6 months just making small change in intake up and down. In order for me to stay as lean as I got over the summer requires almost complete dedication to diet with little room for overages. Its very easy for me to gain weight it seems, certainly not a person who can maintain without tracking that's for sure, it gets easier when I'm around 205ish but I like being leaner now.

    Drilled “Nage” or throws for just about the entire time. Was good, guy I was working with is college cross country and track runner so pretty light, but just working technique so it didn't matter much. Getting better at landing from being thrown, still fatiguing landing and getting up a bunch. Might be a little stiff but probably try to train in the morning. Not super hungry so just going to try to go to bed and have an extra low cal day...

    I think we may have discussed Landmine Shoulder press once before, but I forget how you are doing them. I got this piece of equipment on my wish list for X-mas this year for doing them (and other lifts) though.

    I have a rack mounted landmine at home, I just stick the end of a bar in the corner of a squat rack at the gym. One that attaches to the base of your rack is a good option, but wouldn't be as mobile as the one in the link. That one is pretty expensive for what it is really. I'd just buy one on amazon for the dimensions of the base of your rack. I do LM shoulder press unilaterally so pressing one side at a time. I like rows with it too and my wife does a lot with the one in the garage since it allows for better balance for things like single leg DLs and some hack squat type movements facing toward or away from the apparatus with the sleeve of the bar on a shoulder. Lots of stuff you can do with them, good option to have for some variety IMO.

    Worked on a take down to arm bar thing. Basically jumping onto a person wrapping your legs around them while falling toward your back kicking one leg around their neck, you land with your legs over their neck and chest having their arm between your legs in an arm bar. Not sure what it’s called but it was a lot of fun.

    I don't have a classic full rack/cage at home, just a half-rack so no good way to mount one on it. As for the expense of this one, it was an idea I gave someone who asked what I wanted?

    That and I just really really like Rogue stuff.

    You should have told them you wanted a Rogue rack, with a landmine attachment . Rogue stuff is pretty highly rated. I am currently using a Rogue belt, it is not as nice as my "Best Belts" custom made belt, but it didn't take 8 weeks to make and was a little cheaper IIRC.

    Lacking sleep this week, will try to catch up over the weekend. Made it to the gym and did stuff. I must have lost my workout sheet on the way from the gym to work, but I can pretty much remember everything I think...Squats I was able to get a little more volume in at a reduced load, but I still can't bang out high intensity sets. I was scheduled to be around 370-375 (3x5) for intensity, although 315 seems like good work considering I am doing them very slow and controlled rather than using stretch reflex from the bottom of the reps.

    Worked on a take down to arm bar thing. Basically jumping onto a person wrapping your legs around them while falling toward your back kicking one leg around their neck, you land with your legs over their neck and chest having their arm between your legs in an arm bar. Not sure what it’s called but it was a lot of fun.
    That sounds like either a flying arm bar or a helicopter arm bar depending on what happens to your opponent in the process. The helicopter arm bar involves rolling your opponent over you, flying arm bar is more straightforward. Sounds super cool either way, a very advanced move for us in BJJ.

    Sometimes my best workouts happen when I go in feeling meh or like I'm not into it. I'm not sure why; maybe I'm more ready to suffer when I'm already grumpy. Anyway, it sounds like you're the type to work through just about anything, and that's why you're having long-term success. Keep getting at it. Hope your hamstring continues to heal.

    TY, they were feeling good today, last rep on each set was it though (near failure). Going to see if just using DBs for awhile has any positives for my shoulder. They feel better and I feel like I get better pec activation than BB bench.

    Its more like the flying arm bar, but you pull them in tight and roll them onto the ground over you as you go down. Their momentum as they end up on their back, carries you up where you take the slack out of the arm bar then lean back until they tap or their elbow and shoulder get obliterated. We started doing it from our knees and worked up to doing it standing. Its a helluva ride when the timing is right. You jump on to their hip, as you swing down toward the floor to your shoulders, bringing your leg over their head like in the first vid, but if you keep them tight to you and extend the leg by their head they end up on the ground on their back and you have their arm between your legs. It was seriously fun on either end, the momentum when being the "uke" or person getting the move applied to, its just so fast you don't know which way is up. You just get pulled quickly into a small circle, ending up on your back where your feet just were in an arm bar. Most of mine were a little choppy, but a few of them were smooth. Watching the black belts who were there was cool, they are like spider monkeys...

    Ya I'm the same I sometimes have great workouts when not "feeling it" before. I've just been kind of low energy this week, I just go with the flow. I'm going to the gym pretty much no matter what, and that consistency is more important than having a stellar session every time. The training was enough to be effective, but sometimes I just don't feel like I'm having a great workout if that makes sense. I love the days when I just feel like a beast even if I match previous numbers or even lose ground. Its all good either way! I did the same flipping thing that I did when I hurt it last night and landed perfect . I did get some good stretching in doing that flying arm bar thing trying to get my leg up over their head (more in the hips I realized later). I got some nice hickey looking bruising on the left side of my neck from peoples legs might have to go to an OSHA hearing today too lol.

    Sunday 12/2/18
    184.2 lbs

    A little heavier than I should be, will likely see a drop soon. Weight is trending back down with my lower intake. Really hoping I don’t catch whatever my son has, too much going on at work right now, I really can’t take any time off. A guy I worked with closely for nearly a decade was just appointed to be the new Executive Director of our agency and there is a promotional opportunity coming up soon for me so that’s a pretty good stroke of luck. We used to go to a brand new Planet Fitness at lunch near work when we were at the same facility (he’d lift and I’d do cardio), get along well with him. The last Executive Director was hired from outside of the agency and was not good for the organization, to put it mildly.

    Anyway will probably get some cardio in today, didn’t make it yesterday but worked up a good sweat in jujitsu throwing knee strikes (especially when we used pads). Funny story was working with a female black belt a couple of rounds when we were not using shields and actually delivering knee strikes to the abdomen and got scolded by her for not hitting her hard enough. I just said “sorry, not really in the habit of kneeing women in the stomach” she is shorter than me and almost kneed me in the junk a couple of times if that would have happened maybe I would have been a little more enthusiastic when it was my turn to throw some knees

    Also got “instructed” to use the training wheels and put my hands down on my straight over sutemi (basically a front flip landing on the balls of your feet and shoulders with hips up) after the Sensei saw me bounce my head off the mat pretty hard on the way over (didn’t have my timing right). Oh well, guess he’s afraid of concussions etc, but probably should not try to do everything the black belts do....

    183.2 lbs

    Decent session, Finally got a good night sleep last night. Hammy and glute seem to be improving, but I've lost some ground on squats with the reduced loading, I basically was just feeling things out on them today and trying to get some work sets done at higher intensity, 3rd rep at 365 was RPE 10 did not have another and it was slow. Decided to barbell bench today just to get some higher intensity than DBs that only go to 100s. Overall it was decent though. Belt is getting looser on my normal notch so that's good, waist is shrinking back down.

    LMAO at this. I know what she means, though... I'm not even a black belt woman, but I still get impatient with guys who go too easy on me. I recall one newer white belt was drilling knee on belly with me and I was like "MAKE IT HURT MORE!" I think I terrified the guy but he did do a lot better after that. Oh, and, uh, I may once have nailed my black belt instructor in the nuts when I was sinking my hooks from the back. I felt terrible but he says he's had worse. I guess it's a danger of the sport. Men are so fragile. :P

    I don't know if it's bad that you try things the black belts do, except when you injure yourself. If you don't push yourself to try moves, they don't become habitual as fast, right? And you do have a high level of fitnes and good body control already.

    I'm glad you feel back on track with your eating and weight and that your hamstring is feeling better. Give it some time to settle and I bet your squats will be back.

    Yea I wasn't trying to be "disrespectful" or anything by being a little more controlled with her than with some of the guys, but I just try to be more measured with females, people smaller or a lot older than me in general. I'm not there to try to be "tough guy" and would legit feel bad if I accidently hurt someone. I've heard that some guys routinely wear cups in BJJ, seems like it would restrict movement somewhat, but with as much live wrestling as you guys do getting hit in the nuts is gonna happen. We are fragile If you do that to someone have them sit on the floor and get under hooks under their arms from behind them and lift and drop them lightly a few times, it actually helps...

    As far as doing those flips, I feel comfortable doing them, mostly because its fun and we are on 2" thick mats, but considering I pulled my hammy and about rang my bell maybe I will throttle those back a little for the short term. He said that my issue was I was leading the flip with my head and I need to focus more on my feet coming over which makes sense. It sucks though because the few people that do actually do that version of that sutemi make it look so effortless its like they floating themselves over. I can't see mine, but I'm guessing they don't look that way .

    Feeling back on track with my diet for the time being, staying consistent anyway. Will probably continue until I hit a low 180s/high 170s range. I think the little drop in low rep strength is mostly from being depleted from lower cals/carbs. I know when I'm all puffy and bloated I always feel stronger on squats and deads. Fuller muscles from glycogen and water = bigger lever. So there is actually a physical reason behind it other than just "energy" levels. I had great energy today, just the 365 got really heavy, really fast on rep 3 (thought I was going to ride it back down for a second but it sloooowly made it past my sticking point (about 2/3 of the way up). Will see how deads go on Wed, probably still limited there to an extent, but hammy did not seem to have any negative impact on squats today that I could feel.

    182.8 lbs

    My wife took my son to the Dr. on Monday and he has strep throat and an ear infection. Monday night when he was sleeping his eardrum ruptured which as much as it freaked us out initially, it is apparently pretty common in kids when they have ear infections. So he’s out from jujitsu and gym class etc until at least next Thursday when he gets rechecked. My daughter did great last night and was “Queen of the mat” last night in their class. She pummeled everyone in the game they were playing including higher belt ranks lol. My class was good we did some advanced Yawara stringing some moves together and it let me see the point of some of them a little more clearly.

    Weight is trending down, 182.8 seems to be pretty accurate right now should be on track to lose 1lb or a little more from last week. Have meetings all morning then a work Christmas lunch where I’ll probably try to eat light and stay on track. Not enough sleep last night but I’ll go to bed early tonight hopefully and catch back up.

    5:05-6:15am / 70 Min / 31 sets

    186.2 lbs (LOL what?!)

    Not sure on weight, just holding water I'm guessing since I've been running calories a little below maintenance. Not worried about it, looked leaner today than I did the days around 182 and flat and depleted. Kind of changed things up today, instead of doing DB bench and rows I did barbell for medium rep range day. I just didn't feel like wrestling DBs for bench, and have not been able to BB row for weeks due to the hammy/glute strain. It still limited me a little on rows, but I'll work them back in weekly. Everything was okay. Did BB curls instead of EZ curls and will stick with them for awhile going forward, they felt good and didn't strain my elbows. Squats were alright, they were work, I hope I can start increasing weight cautiously but will take it by feel.

    It certainly seems like your calories are below maintenance, so I dunno on the weight either, man. You've mentioned your calorie counts before, though, and I find them a bit baffling. I lose weight on 2k a day and you are larger and probably at least as active! I'm never going to complain about the number of calories I get to eat again. It may have to do with your substantial weight loss, as you've said before, or perhaps your sometimes variable carb consumption. Too many variables go into weight. That said, you have inspired me to get a better scale and start tracking mine daily as well for data purposes. Since I am competing in a weight class sport now that can be invaluable information.

    Good for your daughter killing those other kids on the mats. But to your son's ear infection and rupture. It is, indeed, quite common. It runs in my mom's side of the family and I had something similar happen as a kid, but it's unpleasant and painful and, to a small child, quite upsetting. I hope he gets better quickly.

    Very nice lifting, btw! I like that you superset bench and row to stay balanced and wtf @ 50(!) dumbbell flys! What's the rationale for the very high reps on that movement? Hypertrophy of a small muscle group?

    Yea my TDEE seems pretty crappy to me but I have followed a lot of other journals of guys around my weight and leaness who had similar TDEEs 2400-2600 range. I don't really believe in "metabolic damage" but it TDEE does drop when dieting for long periods. One of the only pieces of valuable information gleaned from wearing a fitbit (other than the fact I don't sleep enough, which I already knew), is I can see how when I increase calories my NEAT increases and when I restrict calories it decreases based on steps and active minutes outside of the gym. My variable carb intake has a LOT to do with scale weight though, if I went keto right now I could hit high 170s in a week just due to water loss.

    My daughter is a freaking beast (tiny but fierce), last night they played a game where the kids had to crawl across the mat on their bellies and one or two kids in the middle (depending on their size/skill) on their feet would have to attack them and roll them over to their backs before they made it to the other side. Nobody could roll Angie over, she dragged two kids on her back across the mat laughing saying they were her backpack . Then she was by herself in the middle and was the only one to turn everyone over without a single pass of not getting at least one person. They did one on one matches at the end and she went undefeated once again. I actually talked to my Sensei and am thinking about moving her up to the next age group. She is in the 5-7 YO group and just turned 7, but she just dominates and I think she'd progress faster being a challenged a little more. Then again she likes to win, and I don't want to take that away from her prematurely, she is still on the smaller side of the kids in her current class physically. SHe's just got good balance and "feel" for wrestling. Its funny she does things right despite never having been taught what to do, natural ability I guess.

    My son seems fine, its hard to tell with him, he never complains about stuff really. In jujitsu he won't tap even when he should. Can watch his face turn purple and he just refuses even though sometimes he's not even really working to escape, just laying there getting choked He was back at school yesterday. Says he can hear, isn't dizzy etc. He gets re-checked Next Thursday and can hopefully participate in the final class of this quarterly session on Next Sat. We all have a couple weeks break before it starts up again in January through the park District. I might take them to a class or two at the commercial school during the break if they want to, its only $10 for 2 hrs for park district students at the commercial school.

    Love supersetting antagonistic muscle groups. Some studies suggest that it can actually improve performance on both lifts. Not sure about that, but it is very efficient use of time. Those were 50lb DBs for 8 rep sets. But Isolation stuff in general I usually do at higher rep ranges just to reduce joint stress. I just did a couple sets of flys mostly for the stretch today, I had plenty of volume for chest with the bench-press and dips. I try to hit a variety of planes of motion though, but I like getting that deep stretch from flys or DB pull-overs.

    Same here, I am right around 2500. I think your job is more active than mine though since I have desk job, and I really do little cardio to speak of.

    I ride a desk most days too. My only activity is pretty much gym and jujitsu. I try to walk at lunch when the weather is decent but it'll be awhile before I'm doing that again.

    You guys wth the TDEE! I guess because I live in a walking city and walk between clients or to commute, my TDEE is 2500 or so and I am a 5'6" 145ish female. I am doing hard jiu jitsu rolling about 2 hours a day, too, though. TDEE sure is odd. I can't diet under 1800-2000 without feeling like I'm going to pass out. Losing rn and feeling pretty depleted on the higher number. :/ when I do gain weight it is never because my metabolism is slow, just because I like dessert a lot. No satiety signals around cake.


    My brother has a high metabolism and claims to maintain on 4k or so when moderately active so maybe it's genetic or maybe activity and NEAT. Or maybe those tendencies are genetic too.

    You burn a LOT of calories wrestling and you are really active. You could diet on lower cals if you were less active. I’d lose a lot of weight from football to mid wrestling season without dieting too hard (185 down to 160/152). I think it has a lot to do with NEAT too. My wife is petite and eats whatever she wants, doesn’t track etc, but she’s a busy body always doing stuff. She’s like a humming bird.

    Yeah, I have anxiety and I'm pretty sure it keeps my NEAT high... yay? lol no. I agree with you about the calorie burn from live wrestling. It's pretty insane how sweaty we all get. Sometimes the steam from everyone's exertion hangs in the air like it's a sauna. It's nuts. But it's so much more fun than "cardio" that I forget it also burns calories.

    Speaking of which, 900 cals burned in 60 min on the elliptical? That seems like a LOT jesus christ. Are you sure that's accurate? I guess for your size it would be, and depending on resistance.

    Also, am I reading you correctly that groin strikes are legal in traditional jiu jitsu because I have questions about that.

    Have fun at your daughter's bday!
