Open Mat, Fri May 15/15


Yeah baby TGIF!!!… day off.

Went to the Complex with the wife and baby in the morning to get some S & C training in… Oss.

For those not familiar with S & C (Strength & Conditioning).

BOOM, yes this old guy is doing what he’s doing… baby and all.

It’s tough to keep up with those young adult OTM…


S & C training off the mat will be my edge OTM…

I hear lifting at 85 percent of your weight is optimal, we shall see…
