Leaving Rio tomorrow. Got asked to stay and take on a house manager position for accomodation. If this had been on the table earlier I could have happily found part time work and stayed here for 6 months or longer. Suprisingly attached to my girl too and had a sad goodbye tonight. Goddamnit, not ready to go. /livejournal

Jogging, hilly. 4.8km about 27 mins.

I'm in the process of moving to Toronto and will be trying out for new gyms. First up is Toronto BJJ, they have a 30 day free trial. Definitely won't be there every day as i don't live downtown yet, but will check it out as much as I can, starting tomorrow.

Bjj

First class of my trial at Toronto bjj. Quick warmup and straight into 10 minute rounds of rolling. Holy crap. I was expecting to have a leg up after Brazil but not the case here. My first roll was with a monstrous purple belt that choked me like 4 times. Then another purple who again tapped me like 3 times. Finally I thought I'd have some relief with a smaller blue belt. Not the case. He's all over me with 2 or 3 taps. Goddamn.

Gym seems pretty cool, lots of blues and purples. Definitely competition focused...seems to be a large, tightly knit team, very competition oriented...maybe too competition oriented. Will keep heading back whenever I can get to Toronto.

50lb kettlebell
Warmup
Around the body pass 1x
Halos 1x

(Semi)Circuit, 1:00 each
Deadlift 3x
High Pull 3x
One Hand Swing 3x
Two Hand Swing 3x
Bent Over Rows 3x
Two Hand Press 3x

Bought my own 50lb kettlebell. Good god it's heavy, but I wanted one I could grow into. Lots of little breaks and long ones between rounds. Excited to improve and got a couple weeks before I can train any
bjj again regularly anyways.

Diet is bouncing between 203-206lbs, diet has been slipping at best.

Are you still using sparkpeople and/or dailyplate? Also, if you drink, how much if at all does it derail your training?

50lb kettlebell
Warmup
Around the body pass
Halos
Deadlifts


One Hand Swing (each arm) 20, 15, 12, 10
One Arm Hangclean (each arm) 5, 5, 5

Doing reps instead of time, need to get better at the lifts and handling this weight before I worry about circuits.

Just stumbled on to this and am going to follow. Forgive me for not reading all 101 pages, but what belt are you in BJJ?
