rufio.e0's Training Log

I used to do a lot of boxing/muay thai/karate and a friend of mine that used to be my doppleganger has been doing some fighting and is undefeated so far... and that really got me thinking that this is something I could do.

I saw that you missed a meal on your first post. You probably know this already, but it's worth saying that this is a bad idea. It puts your body in hunger mode and that retains the fat because it's worried about the next time it gets nutrition.

Eat often and little, that will keep you burning the calories.

Yeah the only reason I pointed it out is because I normally don't miss those meals. Just had a few distractions.

Yeah, I know. Sh*t happens. I just wanted to use it to bring to your attention the other dietary options besides the typical "Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner" schedule, which doesn't always get you the nutrients you need during your training.

Yesterday I just jogged (unintentional rest day). Tracking all my meals is a bit overwhelming so I'm just gonna list the workout stuff. I will start monitoring my jog times again as soon as I can find where my son hid it. He is just a toddler, maybe he tried to digest it.

5:00AM

Arms
4 x 10 - 70lbs - EZ Bar Preacher Curls

4 x 10 - 70lbs - Rope Pressdowns
superset with:
4 x 10 - 35lbs dumbells - Standing Alternating Curls

The supersetting wore me out a bit faster than I expected. I could have done a 4th or even a 5th superset exercise, but I needed to get ready for work. MMA Class tonight.

Well I've obviously been slacking on my log here, but that's because I've got another one that I'm keeping track of at home. Instead of listing out the reps and techniques on things I'm just adopting IronMan's strategy of mentally reviewing the techniques and any thoughts I might have on any recent training sessions (if you haven't read IronMan's log... go here: http://www.mmaforum.com/training-log...nmans-log.html )

When reviewing techniques last week, I realized that few things get a "panic tap" outta me as quickly as an irregular guillotine. A regular standing or guard guillotine I know how long I have till it's tapping time. The technique we were reviewing was a guillotine when you're sprawled on a turtled opponent. With a seatbelt grip, switch to a guillotine grip (having your hands under the chin isn't necessary), sit on the guy's head and try to close your guard (it ends up resembling a piledriver... but your interlocked hands are like a noose around the guy's neck, if his chin's tucked you still get the blood choke... and it's all your bodyweight on his neck).

Stuff to work on:
I noticed that I am terrible at maintaining side control unless I'm working for a submission or moving to mount. If I'm rolling with someone that's scrappy and hard to hold down... I have to either immediately go for a submission or transition to either north/south or mount in order to keep control.

Stuff I did well:
When I break someone down in my guard and get rubber guard, my transitions are pretty quick. Once I get the arm isolated, I usually have no problem transitioning between omoplata, gogoplata, triangle, and armbar. My figure 4 armbar (from a missed armbar attempt) is also getting much smoother.

Glad you're considering the things that get panic taps out of you when they shouldn't. Keeping calm in a fight is something that's really important, and 90% of that comes through knowing what's coming. People tap most often from the techniques they don't know (as you can see if you watch the early submissions wins Royce Gracie pulled out), which is why it's definitely important to learn a lot of submissions, even if you don't intend to use them.

Good post, and that's definitely a good thing to learn.

Few new thoughts from recent experiences in the gym.

1. Baiting
So I was grappling with the instructor and he was a little too obvious with his attempt to bait me into taking his arm. I had been working to isolate the arm and was actually thinking ahead to wait for jerk his arm out... then I'd quickly transition to the triangle. However, once I got my hand wrapped over his bicep and around to his tricep... I could feel his muscle relax. The fact that I had his arm isolated and only needed to swing my hips over set off a little red flag in my head. I looked up and noticed his other hand right by his face (he was going to use my armbar attempt to pass my guard). This was the first time I'd ever caught him trying to let me have an attempt at a submission in order to pass, but I like the idea and plan on trying it tonight. I just want to be a little less obvious with it.

Oh, he did however give me a foot and I cranked the hell outta a reverse straight ankle lock (ankle lock that uses the opposite forearm to hinge on the achilles) but he was baiting that one too... took the pain of the straight ankle and finished me with a heel hook.

I also need to work on getting my hips out for the omo plata.

over the last 3 weeks I've lost 12 pounds.
1 month until NAGA.
Only 10 more pounds to go. (currently 212)

I'm up to 5 miles per day jogging. Keeping the caloric intake around 1800. Still spending 2 hours on the mat 4 days per week. I need to work the transitions from takedowns to submission more... even though I know the moves they aren't in muscle memory yet.

Pulled off a heel hook, straight ankle, and an armbar last night. Didn't get submitted.
