Yeah, I went to a fertility festival just before my fight. There is a festival today but it's too far to bike (an hour by local train is too far to bike). I think I'm going to really relax today. I was dead tired yesterday after the bike ride and tired all night, slept like a log.
I'm also thinking about what kind of workouts to do this week. I'm planning on a barbell complex workout (probably this one: http://www.defrancostraining.com/ask_jo ... question01
), possible Crossfit's "Isabel" (30 snatches, for time) or Ross Enamait's Magic 50 (if my hip will let me do swings, snatches, and burpees, that is), and another bodyweight squat/pullup/pushup workout of some kind. Maybe AMRAP or Tabata, not sure yet. And I'll fit in at least one max effort lift in there on day, I'm thinking probably front squats. The weather's getting nicer so I figure I'll fit in more bike rides too.
The week after I want to start on an actual lifting routine. I'm debating either doing a cycle of Starting Strength, or doing a slightly modified 3-day version of WS4SB3.
I figure Starting Strength's pros are - lots of squatting, and I'd like to get good at back squats, and simple, linear progression which is likely to help me get my strength back quickly. Cons are total lack of unilateral work, although if I modify the program I could do workout A (Monday), workout B (Wednesday or Thursday) and then a lighter unilateral workout (lunges and single-leg RDLs instead of squats, dumbbell bench presses instead of bench or shoulder presses, one-arm rows instead of power cleans).
WS4SB3 is an upper/lower split, although I'd modify it so it would be ME Upper, ME Lower, combo DE lower (jump training) + Rep Upper days. Pros are a good mix of bilateral and unilateral work and a good mix of rep ranges (which I responded well to), cons are upper/lower split and not as much heavy leg work. I did well on a two-day full body version of WS4SB but that was cut down significantly to account for 4-5 days a week of MMA training, so I think I'd do better with a 3-day workout.
Or I'll do something entirely of my own design, Push/Pull/Legs, with a mix of bilateral and unilateral works, mixing set/rep ranges into a Heavy/Light split. But I haven't really decided and I know I don't know enough yet about that kind of periodization to really design a solid one.
Still debating that, and trying to take my time. As soon as I decide I'll want to jump right into it and I really feel another week of metcon emphasis is a good idea.
