      It's time to train with you again.
      Because Hawaii's less than four weeks out
      Diet/ conditioning's what it's all about
      To burn all the calories I intake.
      Make no mistake.

      So, been doing pretty well.


      405# squat (at 150# body weight), which was my goal to hit BY DECEMBER.

      13528932_10154941187249992_5646533708138


      410# deadlift, my goal was 405# by December as well.

      And most importantly, I got promoted in May.

    • Buff Buddies: Conclusion

      4 months ago

      Qeth RKC

      Quick breakdown of what my goals were:


      1) Earn another stripe on my belt in BJJ in the next 8-16 weeks.

      Just got my 4th stripe today, 25Feb16. Next step is a belt promotion. I highly doubt I'll be ready for the next belt by spring promotion, but I am hoping I will be ready by fall.


      2) Increase my one rep max on my squat and deadlift to 365# by mid-late January.

      I hit 365# on my deadlifts on 08Feb16, but fell short on my 365# squats.


      3) Increase my conditioning and increase my "flow" in BJJ and kickboxing.

      This was an extension of #1, with extra conditioning thrown in in the form of kettlebells metcons.


      I am satisfied with the results. I stumbled a few weeks due to minor injuries and aches or sickness, but overall, not bad for an old man.


      My goals for the rest of 2016:

      1) Train in BJJ consistently 3x/ week at the bare minimum, 1x a week for kickboxing mitt work, and at least 2x/ month MMA.

      2) Hit 400# for both squats and deadlifts.

      3) Augment strength training with kettlebell and/ or body weight conditioning work.


      Here's to Buff Buddies!

      Been pretty lazy on the posting side, but my training has continued and is pretty much par for the course. No big milestones, nothing special to report.


      I would, however, like to take this time to properly show off my heir to my empire.


      Cheers, guys!

    • Buff Buddies Week 5

      Starting weight: 150# (as of 30 November)

      Target weight: 137#

      End of week weight: 145


      8 more lbs!


      Diet: The weekend was bad: had a whole 11" pizza for late lunch on Saturday, and Sunday we had dinner out to celebrate a birthday, and I had way too much good food. The remainder of the week was good... because I came down with a cough and my appetite dropped.


      3/5 douche Blaines, one deduction per cheat meal.


      BJJ: since I was sick, I only trained once this week on Tuesday.


      NPH-dissapoint.gif

      1/5 douche Blaines.


      Powerlifting: It's deload week, and since it's lightweight I did it all lifts in one session on Monday. Per the schedule, I only needed to to 1 lift per day over 4 days. I wanted to try this 3x this week, but again, I was down with the sickness (ooh ah ah ah ah!).


      5/5 douche Blaines. Deload weeks are meant to be easy powerlifting weeks, and since I did all the lifts, albeit all in one day, I lifted what I needed to lift.


      Conditioning: I started Sunday, so I was able to get in 47 minutes of conditioning Sunday, 23 minutes Monday, and 20 minutes Tuesday. 90 minutes of conditioning in only 3 days, vs the 60 over the course of 4-5 days. This could have been an awesome conditioning week if not for the cough.


      2.5/5 douche Blaines. Yes, more conditioning than normal, but because it's deload week for powerlifts I should have been able to 120 minutes this week.


      On to next week, hopefully with a less sick me!

    • Buff Buddies Week 4

      7 months ago

      Qeth RKC

      Starting weight: 150# (as of 30 November)

      End of week weight: 146.5#

      Target weight: 137#

      Diet: I started on a cleaner diet on Monday, 30 November. Weighed in at 150 that morning, a bit heavier than expected. Thanks, Thanksgiving! Good portion was probably water weight retained thanks to the sodium packed goodness. I dropped down quickly to 146.5# (as of this morning) by eating less salty food (and probably pissing out a lot of excess fluid) and decreasing portion size of meals by ~15%. I stumbled a bit and had a weak moment yesterday, had some burgers, fries, onion rings, and beer.

      3.5/5 Hero Joshes. Too early for a cheat meal, that's a paddlin'.

      BJJ: Trained 4 times this week. If I get out of work on time, I can make another one tonight, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

      4.5/ 5 Hero Joshes. I won't award myself the 5th until I can do 5 good BJJ training days in a week.

      Powerlifting: did everything per my spreadsheet. It's PR week, and I hit everything that was planned. Very happy with my 355 squat and deadlift.

      5/5 Hero Joshes. Went as planned.

      Conditioning: target is 60 minutes of conditioning throughout the week (typically ~15 minutes after powerlifting). This week, I did 24 minutes on Monday, 8 minutes Tuesday, and 40 minutes on Wednesday. 72 minutes total, 12 minutes more than planned.

      5/5 Hero Joshes, with a potential 43 minutes more tomorrow.

      On to next week!

    • Buff Buddies Week 3

      7 months ago

      Qeth RKC

      To give myself an incentive to get better in BJJ, I am planning on competing end of January. This means that I have to drop some weight. I am about 147#, and I need to drop to 137# to be safely in my weight category. My powerlifts and metcons may have to be slightly altered to put priority on skill training.

      BJJ: The academy was closed most of the week due to the holidays. I only managed 1x this week. Not happy. I haven't seen the latest episode of BB, so until then, I'll use the original Meg face rating method of 1/5 Meg faces.

      Powerlifting: 4 lifts, as planned, with some extra accessory work thrown in, in the form of weighted pull ups and chin ups. I would rate 5/5 Meg faces, but my squats were not as deep as I wanted, so 4.5/5 Meg faces. Very happy with my deadlifts this week.

      Conditioning: Conditioning is now post powerlift (if applicable), not pre. The tentative plan is to have 12-17 minutes of conditioning after a powerlift, so 4 conditioning workouts (or 48-68 minutes total) per week. This week is a little different due to the holidays. I did 2 15 minute conditioning workouts after Monday's deadlift and Tuesday's bench press, but on Thursday I did a standalone 47 minute monster MetCon for a total of 77 minutes. 4.5/5 Meg faces, as I had an opportunity to do a Wednesday conditioning circuit, but skipped because I wanted to play some Fallout.

      Over all, not a bad week, if it weren't for the lack of BJJ training. On to next week!

      BJJ: I only trained 3x this week. One session had very light sparring. Disappointing jits week. 3/6 Zach abs.

      Powerlifting: Powerlifted 4x this week. Failed my 5th rep on my heaviest set on bench press, and failed my 4th rep on my heaviest set on squat. 4/6 Zach abs. I may be overdoing the conditioning pre powerlift.

      Conditioning: 4x this week of 15-17 minutes of conditioning pre powerlifting, so I may be blowing my load too soon. Still, I HIIT (eyyyyy!) it how I planned, so 6/6 Zach abs, although this week may have shown that I HIIT it too hard.

        I work for the Devil. And by that, I mean major banks and loan servicers that invested in CMBS (the reason for the housing market failure in 2008). I review property reports and do oversight for remediation. It sounds more exotic than it is, I basically make sure the banks don't make a bad situation worse and I improve property values so that they get more money back after they've foreclosed on a property.

        Not sure who she was, but it was from a relatively new anime. I had to help her make some super long WWI or WWII era sniper rifle from PVC pipes for her first costume, and her second one was a half black/ half white hooded zip up sweater with ears on the hood.

        I bet we can entice a bunch of the crew if we had a proper RTSF. Heck, I just want to hang out with RT fans. The closest thing I've had was a random citing of a guy wearing a "Cinnamon, NOOO!" shirt at the mall.
