Training Goals for Summer 2018

I basically want to become an enlightened, humble MMA meathead.

Training Goals:

Outcome Goals

  • Fix Back & Neck (make them less, painfully stiff)
  • Fix Golfer’s Elbow – so it’s not constantly painful
  • Improve Left Hip mobility so I can do a left high kick/roundhouse
  • Improve Cardio (not sure of precise goal on this yet, will update)
  • Complete 10 Full Range Front Squats with a pause at the bottom with 80kg
  • Complete 10 Full Range Reps on Dummbbell Bench Press with 46kg
  • ‘Keep in touch’ with MMA (currently prioritising sorting my neck, back & spending time with the family but don’t want to drift away completely from the sport)

–Complete/Achieve by July 1st–

Process Goals

  • 30 minutes of yoga every day & 2 yoga classes per week (1 can be via youtube)
  • 10 minutes of foam rolling every day 
  • Watch TV in Paleo squat or Cobra position
  • Use trigger point techniques & stretch left hip every day
  • Ice elbow every night & avoid press ups & barbell bench press
  • Complete 3 sets of squats with kettlebell at home each week + 3 sets at the gym


  • Complete official Griffiths MMA circuit once per week (get up techniques, chest 2 chest sweeps, triangles/ab exercise, Wrestling clinch to double-leg, over/under technique, side-control escapes, mount escapes). Try with 5kg vest.
  • Practice boxing southpaw – 1 round per day at least
  • Attend either Thai Boxing or a Grappling class at least once per month

Also be mindful in work more – focus on tasks as a form of meditation (kind of)

At some point I also need to fix my IBS once & for all…it’s a million times better but still think it’s the limiting factor in my recovery (leaky gut = inflammation)
