Workout Session 3 with a Torn ACL


3rd Session Torn ACL Workout

As for my “with a torn ACL workout” session #3, the double kettlebell front squat and farmer’s walk was difficult.  It was difficult because I didn’t know that I had to do the 8 sets nonstop.  It just shows how bad my cardio is, I should’ve kept pushing it through.

Having the correct mindset is key in order to push myself.  These days, I’ve been having a workout mindset of just “finishing” a workout.  Instead of finishing a workout, I should do better than what is expected; do more and do better next time.

November 11th, 2017 workout session:

  • stretches
  • learning how to SSB (Safety Squat Bar) Squat 5 x 5
  • bench press 5 x 5
  • inverted row 3 x 12
  • swiss bar rollout 3 x 8
  • double kettlebell front squat 8 x 8
  • farmer’s walk 8 x 20 meters


  • to have an endless gas tank
  • solid core
  • the right diet

On a side note, since I cannot do MMA sparring, I’m focusing my time and energy on strength and conditioning.  I should do some light workouts on my downtime at home, such as shadowboxing.

So far Eric has been helpful in my training regimen that won’t hinder or worsen my injury.  Hopefully, I can see and feel some improvements in my S&C soon.  As I have mentioned in my previous post, due to my injury, it’s been difficult not being able to train specifically in MMA.  I’m not sure when I can get my knee fixed.  Unfortunately, due to the high costs, it won’t be any time soon.


Again, I’ll try and keep these workouts updated.  Hopefully some of these workouts can be of good use.
