so you havent done any MMA or lifting in 3 days?

i do a very simillar HIIT thing wrong with this is your resting for as long as your working, you will get much better endurance by lets say 45 sec sprint and 30 sec break, this is for conditioning but the idea of HIIT is that you stay anaerobic by letting your heart rate drop 6 bpm, the only way to do HIIT proper is to test your heart rate,

So while doing HIIT wear my HRM ... Thanks I am going try it out!


lulz I havent had mcd's in like 2 years



yeah, it wasnt meant to be tru HIT just some interval cardio...usually I'll do a closer 1:2 or 1:3 ratio for HIT

so then it wouldn't be a problem for you to put a barbell in there and load weight up. Then ask to work in, and voila! It worked pretty well for me when I had to manage to deal with higher-ranking officers who were using the rack for....whatever.

It's a polite and respectful way to work in. They don't need to worry about changing weight, you just need the space. Frequently they'd get the message and just...move.

I've been giving up on my leg kicks during sparring as it opens me up to counters and takedowns. I feel a leg kick isn't necessarily going to stop a fight.

I've been going straight for the head or liver if I throw a kick at all. I've been focusing a lot more on my boxing/hands.

Sorry for the rant but your log title sparked it!

4/2

open-mat x 2.5 hours

rolled with 4 different people

rolled with my usual partner a few times...worked on getting new submissions on him...took the back for a RNC, got a guillotine, arm triangle and a few others...he's getting better though

second guy was a 135 but was close to a blue belt and FAST...good rolling with him, as he had been a wrestler too so had a very good base....he got me the first time with a guillotine I never saw coming, second time we went for like 10 min until I got him in a kimura...then we had to get him a bucket to puke in.... my mat endurance 4tw

third guy was a 205 beast...he usually gets me about 50/50..but today I was 3-0 on him. first time was a nice fedor style armbar from bottom where i roll through and end up on my stomach....second was americanaa....third was a RNC after a sweet scramble to his back...also managed to survive a very deep americana by movin around, to the delight of the instructor


lastly I rolled with the instructor who fights at 170...he got me in a peruvian necktie the first time. second time was a long roll before he got me in an armbar....third time was another long roll..and during a scramble he pushed me away from guard but left a leg out and I slapped on a leg lock and managed to get it 4tw. he said it was very slick and he didnt expect it. I told him I was inspired by the UK guy on TUF last night with the sick leg game


overall a GREAT day...instructor told me I'm looking very good, and he can see improvements. I think I'm gonna work with him alot more and try and find a BJJ contest(no-gi perferabbly) soon....NAGA comes to chicago..any thoughts? I'd be in a new division obviously, and with the NAGA I'd have just under 9 weeks to cut weight

my buddy(HW) is gettin alot better...gettin harder to catch him, hes starting to learn...I got lazy and he almost locked in a triable from bottom north south

first time we rolled I got an arm triangle. second time I went for an armbar, he pulled it out, and I NAILED a gogo for a submission for the first time...my leg just happened to be there, threw the other over the head and layed it in...got complements from everyone watching, was sweet :D

rolled with the LW afte that...we got about 50/50...he got me with a guillotine that came out of noweher after some weird neck crank position. I got him with an arm triangle...he got me with a heel hook...I got him with armbar

went back to the HW....nailed a beautiful armbar from knee on stomach...he almost got me in a north south, but i managed to wiggle out just enough to breathe, ended up rolling him


solid day

at the end worked positional stuff helpin my buddy, and learned a few tricks from the LW

Depending on how much you weigh the bodyweight ones can be an ass kicker too.

We do them for warmups before Muay Thai sometimes and they can suck. Pushups, Squats, and V Ups and you will be plenty warmed up.

AWESOME roll, tons of energy from the alkaline diet again. just me and one other again

first hour we free rolled starting from standing...def need to work a bit more of this...got a standing arm triangle once and pulled guard...another time got his back, but other times he got dominant position bc of mistakes id make...next 45 minutes were technique work...taught him some butterfly guard and sweeps, and some other basic type stuff to get him ready.

last 15 minutes were positional rolling on the ground

finished with one last all-out roll... I got to an underhook/overhook and did a Judo throw to take him down into side control...worked for a bit, he did a good job using the techniques I taught him to get out of side and into a turtle position, and I finished him with a very tight anaconda


my energy was great, so when he took a water break I'd do sets of 25 crunches, neck bridges, shrimp down the mats, etc

open mat x 1hour, 15 min


first 45 min was standing from starting rolling....got 2 sweet judo throws standing, and finished the first with a nice armbar...second via a choke i learned in CK's log...got my first GOOD double-leg too, first time it felt fast and comfortable..got him used to the tie up on the head, faked for the head and shot a hard double, slammed em into side control 4tw

pushed the pace a ton, sweated balls...feels good man

next 15 minutes was positional rolling

final 15 minutes was takedowns....feel better about starting while standing now

I know which one you are referring to, I just haven't done it yet, or had the opportunity to try it. I have been focusing on my Muay Thai since that is where I need most of my work before my fight. Coach feels my ground game is already better than the guys so I need to make sure my striking is as good as it can be.

I had been holding a tight gable grip, and completely burned out my left forearm...by the time i had the anaconda locked on, my forearm was numb and I couldnt squeeze anymore lulz. but felt good man. also didnt get tapped once by my partner, and got him with a variety of submissions...

what sucks is the average and "ok" are so off so even if you are rocking a 325 way below they wont do **** for you legally unless its like 299. Im thinking of getting my levels tested once i have some spare money just so i can know what they are. are you thinking of taking action on your test levels? been out of the loop for the last two weeks so i may have some catch up reading to do to find out whats up, also you good with your job after the politician scare?

As for you competing at Heavy Weight I don't think that will be that big of a deal for you. I have competed at Heavy Weight the last 3 Tournaments and did fine, and that was weighing 217 and 210. I made it to the Finals in one tournament, One Gi and No Gi at the other, and was competitive against some much bigger guys so I think with your size and strength it isn't going to hurt you. It is usually one of the smaller divisions too. I think be hydrated and energized will help you out a lot and you won't have the cardio issues that other big guys have since you do about 4 hours of it a day, or so it seems.

weighed in in full warmups and cup and everything @ 237, lightest in the division

the gi went as expected having not worn one in like 2 years. went up against a strong, good opponent from I think a gracie school and got tapped via americana. i pulled guard after a missed judo throw...he passed, and as he did I got my arm stuck across my chest, and his face was holding my arm there...by the time I started to get my arm free, he was already securing the americana

no-gi I got a bye first round, second round lost to the eventual champion of the division...he jacked up my left elbow pretty good on 2 different good americanas, but fought out of them...later in the match i went to throw a leg over his head and accidentally kicked him in the back of the head hardcore with my shin. i asked if he was ok bc he just froze for a second, and patted him on the back to ask him (habit from training..) the ref saw the pat and heard a mumble(he had a headlock on) and thought I tapped from the choke :( strong noob mistake


next match was for 3rd place. about a minute in I won via ezekial choke


overall it was a LONG day....from the time I got there for weigh-ins and rules meetings it was over 4 hours til my first fight. between that, the nerves and only having a gatorade and box of raisins all day, i felt spent before my first match even started. learned some things, met some VERY cool people and teams, saw some solid jiu-jitsu, and had fun despite a dissapointing day.

few pics attached
first is attempted throw in the gi (needed to get the hip over farther to block his other hip)
second is pulling guard
third is in guard
fourth is where my arm got stuck
fifth is the ezekial finish
sixth is one of the americanas i survived...but its the 2nd of the 2 that felt my elbow creak and has it hurting now


sorry for low quality, workin on still captures. the camcorder battery died, so have pieces of vids from the digital

I feel you on the deloading. I went to Muay Thai and MMA last night and was exhausted the whole time. I thought I was ready to get right back into training but I guess this weekend took more out of me than I expected. I might wait until Saturday to get back to class. I have a ton of crap around the house to do anyway so it might work out for the best.
