Workout Session 5 with a torn ACL

In Workout Session 5, this is the middle of the second week of Eric’s (my strength and conditioning coach) 4 week program.  After each session, I feel like my body is adjusting and improving in each type of workout.  Hopefully, after this 4 week program, I can see some major improvements in my strength.  As always, my diet, alcohol consumption, sleep and training in martial arts should always be focused on too.

November 15th, 2017 workout session:

  • stretches
  • learning how to SSB (Safety Squat Bar) Squat
  • bench press
  • inverted row
  • swiss bar rollout
  • tire flip 4 x 20 meters
  • tire sledgehammer 4 x 20
  • learning how to truck pull 4 x 15 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.
