Starting Martin Rooney's Ultimate Warrior Workouts, and i gotta say you MUST own this book if you're anywhere near a martial artists (even you capoeiristas who think you're dancers). Great workouts, great philosophy, and for 20 bucks it's one of the best presentations I've ever seen. Worth your time.

Rehab type work is tough. I'm trying super hard to not go crazy and push up bigger weights, but I need to remember i'm in it for the long haul. MMA training starts August or September, i'd like to be ready for that. I love it when a plan comes together...

This was not an easy workout, but that's mainly because after a month off i'm terribly out of shape. Martin Rooney said it best, "it's bodyweight exercises, if you can't even use that piece of equipment, i don't care what tools you got, it's probably not going to work." True that.

But i'm still going to get back to powerlifting movements at some point...Love my squats and deadlifts.
