Had backpains all Wednesday and could barely sit on my ass so no BJJ for me. Thursday was Valentines Day and my gift to Jessica was not training for once so no lifting weights that day.
Did some deadlifts but switched to goodmornings because I couldn't get a good grip on the barbell. Also did some chins, rows and curls but nothing to write home about.
I didn't feel like I had any energy or motivation today.
Things hasn't been going my way lately training-wise. No matter how much time I put in training I still don't feel any results from it. Eating differently hasn't made much of a difference either. Now I'll try to rest myself in shape and cut down on the lifting a little bit and hopefully get a few more days off. Resting has never helped me in the past but I'm getting desperate. I also don't feel the evolvement on the mat that I want to feel and it's getting frustrating because I've really dedicated my life to training and MMA these last few years and I don't feel like it pays off.
IMO, you need more sets. I just don't think you're doing enough sets per muscle group to really get gain, but enough to not lose any muscle. It could also be that you've simply hit a plateau. Try out some advanced techniques to try and get through the plateau. Try out some burnouts, forced reps, negatives, etc. These will all help you to get back on track. Also, try being more consistent with your lifts. This is a controversial subject, some say to switch it up so you don't get bored, blah blah blah. IMO you gotta keep it the same, atleast for a month or two so you can really gauge your progress.
Appreciate your input bayon. I'll try to switch it up a little and go for a few more sets and maybe max out a little more often.
BJJ sparring. Felt really weak and tired before training but this session went really well. I had a great time and tried to work on new set-ups as much as possible. Perhaps that's where my focus needs to be right now. Just trying to enjoy training and trying out as many new things as possible.
