I used to train in IP but am currently gymless. Going to copy over my log from IP’s forum so that all my training data is in one place.
I’m 25 year old male, 93kg and probably about 30% BF.
Not sure if the 93kg is exact as it’s a bathroom scales but it’s hopefully not too far off.
At the minute my training is mostly in back garden using kettlebells to get some IP type conditioning blocks done.
At the minute don’t really have a training plan, but that’s going to change shortly.

About an hour of rolling with Barry and he went through some of the attacks from Weds evenings class.

BJJ (No GI) Evening Class

Found the warm up very tough, not sure if this was because I trained already that morning or because it was tough.

Over an hour of drilling maintaining side control.

Monday 13/12/10

S1 I13

2 rounds of warm up

Speed Deads

Warmed up with 40kg

60kg 8x3 with a minute recovery between each set. don't think I wasn't going fast enough on these when coming up from the bottom but my back was rounding when I tried to go faster.

Elevated split squats

4 x 8 reps each side - HELL

Hanging Leg Raise

3 x 10 reps. Each set was broken up into reps of 3 or 4 as the Tendonitis kicked up big time in my hands. Not sure if this is because of the cold or because I done deadlifting before hand. First time that the Tendonitis has effected me since I started to train in IP.

40kg x 5
45kg x 2x5
50kg x 2x5 last couple of reps of this set were tough

Weds 16/12/10

Half of C2 I13

Only did half as only had a few mins between my two tutorials.

Two rounds of IP warm up

Prowler 10' block

110kg 2 pushes

dropped down as those 2 pushes killed me

4 more pushes at 90kg

Strength block 15'

Reverse lunges with 10kg
push ups 5
pull ups 5 with both legs in grey band

only got 4 rounds

the push ups slowed me down loads. Got 5 in the first two rounds, after that had to stop after every rep and reset as I was just getting stuck at the bottom.

By far the worst session I've put in, reckon this is a combination of the lack of sleep over last few nights and also bad doms from the strenth session on Monday.

Did C1 (well as much as I could with no equipment)

10' of pushing car up and down driveway. The initial push was much heavier than the prowler but after that momentum took over each time and made it easy.

15' workblock of box jumps (using the bench as the box); 10kg dbell floor press; and 16kg kbell one arm unsupported rows. 5 of each and 6 rounds

10' - back to pushing the car. Did 10 lengths in the 10 mins. Took about 45 seconds to do a length each time.

15' 5 pullups (using a couple of bands that were available); 40kg bbell bench press; 16kg kbbell potato sack squat (heaviest kbell available). 5 of each and 5 rounds
