Back at the gym again. I felt a small strain in my back while I was hoisting a dumbbell so I'll do the rest of my workout on saturday.

Squat 3,3,3,3,3 @ 205lbs
DB Bench 3,3,3,3,3 @ 65lbs

Easy weights, especially with the lower reps. Forearm still hurts when I bench, bah!

BJJ

******* good to be back! For those who thought I had burned out and given up, you were wrong.

So roughly 2 weeks off and my body's feeling like a clean slate again...so long as the forearm pains don't find their way back.

I just got Saulo Ribeiro's Jiu Jitsu Revolution 1. Started watching today and I love it. I decided to fully focus on applying a more relaxed and technical approach like his.
This went well as soon as we started rolling in class today. Where there was resistance, instead of resisting back instinctively, I adjusted my position and looked for ways around. I know this is is obviously how BJJ is suppossed to be, but to apply it when guys are going hard on you takes experience. But doing this in the beginner class I took a guys back out of nowhere, and also managed to find points of unbalance and make a few easy sweeps. I was mostly dominant when we drilled guard passes, so I was pretty pleased with myself.

Technique was I beleive a windmill sweep, a windmill sweep into an armbar, a reverse scissor sweep, and a reverse scissor sweep into some sort of choke...I don't remember the name, a boa choke maybe?

Advanced class was mostly drilling. Starting in a triangle and trying to escape while they submit. Starting in side control and trying to reguard while the other guy tries to stall, etc. with technique inbetween

Then some more rolling. I seemed to have gotten a bit frustrated from being smothered on in side control for 10 minutes so I lost my focus on relaxed and technical, still had lots of good rolls but didn't do so well. Got submitted a few times but usually gave a few tremendous struggles beforehand.

It's now been over a week since I've drank alcohol or anything carbonated, or eaten something deep fried. Aside from occassional french fry and chinese food cravings, I'm doing alright.

Tomorrow morning's Anaerobic Conditioning and MMA Class that evening. Peace.

MMA Class

Warm up run, gymnastics that I seem to be improving on. I don't nearly knock the wind out of myself when I do diving front rolls anymore. More plyometric wheelbarrows to put the hurt on me.

Technique was shooting for the double leg takedown, then practiced sprawling when a partner touches your leg. On the ground we worked on the butterfly guard, which was a first for me. Learned the basic position, then a sweep from it into opponents side control, then we learned how to pass the butterfly guard. Then we rolled from a stand. I positionally dominated the first guy but he's younger and smaller so no big accomplishment. I got positionally dominated by the second guy who's slightly lighter than me but more experienced...I was smothered in side control for most of it, one of my biggest weaknesses...haven't got to that part in the dvd yet. In hindsight I realized I should have bridged, shrimped, brought my elbow to knee and reguard. For some reason I didn't though. I was back and forth with the third guy but eventually got a kimura sweep on him, I couldn't finish the kimura from mount and he swept me into guard but I held onto the kimura and finished it from there.

Decent class.

BJJ tomorrow.

Thanks. It's been a killer so far. It's kind of annoying though because it feels like my hands are the first thing to go.

Feeling pretty sore today. Had a decent class though. I'm feeling lazy so I'm not going to go through it. Muay Thai/MMA tomorrow.
