Monday afternoon I was sitting on the couch before jiu-jitsu. I found the St. Louis Blues were playing on t.v. I wanted to do nothing more than sit there, watch the hockey game, and eat myself silly. The last thing I wanted to do was go to class. I thought about the last time I deloaded.. um about 5-6 weeks ago.. time for a deload. So that means no sparring monday or wednesday night, thursday will be light 2x20 on some basic exercises.
Monday night, I went to class, but did lots of mobility work before class instead of rolling. We worked on a simple sweep to arm bar (basic stuff, but with lots of details). I skipped sparring and went home.
Last night, I went to the gym and decided that I would push weight on rows only, everything else would be kept light.
Front squats: as low as possible 2 second pause in the hole
5x4 at 135
Yes, these are pitiful. Yes, they're getting better. Yes, my hips still hate me.
no rest.. (big sign I need to deload)
worked up to 3 at 205

I went and did some rugby coaching. Ran around a little bit, worked on set pieces and talked about loose play. Fun stuff.
