Upper Body Push Cycle:
Repeat cycle 3 times, rest 90 seconds
Warmup Military Press 12@bar

Military Press 6,6,6@105lbs
DB Bench W/ Dropset 6,6,4@65lbs 8@40lbs 20@20lbs single hand
Lateral Flys 12,12,12@15lbs
Skullcrushers 9,8,8@55lbs
Pushups 15,10,6
Rear Dips 8,8,8
Dips 4,4,4
Pushups 8,7,4
Rear Dips 8,8,8
Dips 4,4,4

Lowered Military Press and Bench by 10 and 5lbs to adjust to the weight loss. The upside of losing 10lbs or so is the numbers on dips went up.

I forgot to mention that my opponent for june wanted 185 or nothing, so I have a larger cut ahead of me. I'm still tracking my diet everyday and meeting target calories. I'm waking up around 196ish every morning so I'm on the right
track.


No Gi

Technique was attacking the back. From seat belt we learned to rear naked choke with the underhook going across their neck. Easier to sink, but more difficult to finish with their arm in there. Next in the sequence they reach to defend we trap that wrist with our overhook hand, then bring our rear naked choke out and around, chopping the wrist into the side of their neck. Pull at their trapped wrist or adjust further to the elbow and move off to the side like a bow and arrow choke to finish. Then if that doesn't work, from the bow and arrow the trapped arm should be easily available for an armbar.

Did well rolling, but the last round I got tapped by a stronger pro fighter with some kind of weird omoplata/armbar. One more day training and I get a rest day.

3 rounds shadowboxing, 3 rounds heavybag. Short but intense.

Running on 2-3 hours of sleep, this workout was brought to you in part by caffeine. Hopefully I get a few more hours tonight.

BJJ X2

Deep half guard techniques. Quite a few rounds. Did decently against Danny, our black belt.




Exhaustion is adding up as it always does the last couple weeks before a fight. Luckily it's just weariness that will fade in the rest days leading up to the fight. Happy to say there's no nagging injuries to report.

MMA class with Kajan!

Another brutal Kajan warmup, worked combos and drilled push kicks on the bag. Worked combos with partners and combos leading into takedown, then special details about following through on the takedown that I'll go over: So from a southpaw stance, we're double jabbing in, each jab you come forward on, squat down and lunge in for the take down, grabbing at the knees (not the waist that I always do) then slamming shoulder into their lower abdomen. This one was simplified with no angle turns, just drive forward exploding up, then swing their legs out and the side that you swing the legs too, that same side leg stays on foot as the other leg drops to a knee, so upon completion you should have your leg propped up, their legs cradled over top, and your shoulder jammed painfuly in their abdomen. We did three rounds sparring, did decent but could have been better, spent last round stuck in my guard. Took a few good shots and my nose was bleeding freely but doesn't seem to be damaged. More sparring tomorrow.

5 Rounds sparring with the pros.

Back in a few hours for MMA class which will probably have more sparring. My poor rattled brain and body.

MMA Class with Danny

2 rounds pads each with Danny, hitting the bag for 4 rounds to get through all of us. Positional drills, stuck on your ass in the corner of the ring and trying to get up and vice versa. Turtled with the guy on you and trying to get out, and vice versa. Two rounds mma sparring afterwards.

Body is feeling the abuse today.
