Technique was getting to half guard from them framing off you, flattening out their half guard, switching hips- but instead of popping up to switch, he sprawled his one leg back then tucked it under his butt. Work the leg out and kick back from there. Drilled it, positonal sparred, then rolled a few rounds. Rolled 2 blues, one tapped me once (armbar) the other was positional back and forth. A green (an adult green that definitely wasn't a white belt...weird.) positional back and forth but I got the better of him, and two purples that both tapped me once (arm bar, collar choke) and I spent the rest of the round surviving, escaping, trying to pass and hold something down. Good class. I'd been feeling really claustrophobic for the past year+ when exhausted in bad positions, but today I didn't really get that way...which is very nice.

Going to risk putting up a weekly routine. Basically what I've been doing recently but set to days to keep me accountable.

M-BJJ
T- Shadowbox + Squat, Bench, Deadlift, Chinup
W- Off
Th- BJJ
F- Pushup Burpees
S- BJJ
Su- Kettlebell Swings, Clean and Squats, Turkish Getups + Ab Circuit: Crunches, Reverse Crunches, Russian Twists, Leg Raises

Will have to swap days based on work schedule conflicting with bjj classes. This schedule is set based off what I can do this week.

Warmup, positional drilling from side control, mount, closed guard. Rolled a purple and blue and got submitted once each. One guy I rolled had ringworm. Yikes.

God damn. Didn't think I'd beat last week and I just resolved to get a good workout. Another huge improvement came sickness free instead.

Tech was a sweep from de la riva guard. From de la riva circle your de la riva hook inside and shoot your leg through, pulling yourself more under. Wrap your hook back around the leg but with your foot up at the hip. Other leg leaves their hip, your knee bracing against your newly place hook. Switch to trapping the foot with your elbow, big bridge back while pulling their sleeve to sweep. Butt scooch back then pop up to follow through.

We drilled positionally from de la riva guard but I didn't do very well. I still don't really have a specific open guard game and basically just freestyle it. Should probably find a specific open guard game and study it. My problem with de la riva is my far leg reaching to the hip feels very very weak and easy to deflect with a hand.

In rolling just got a 10 minute round with a fresh blue belt that kicked my azz all over. He had a similar game to me except much more on point and a better open guard. I saw everything coming but could only delay the invevitable. Got tapped to two armbars and a bow and arrow. Good class.

Instructor told me my blue belt looks like too much like a purple and I need a new belt. It is pretty faded but c'mon.

Deadlift 5,5,5,5,5@225
Bench 5,5,5,5,5@145
Chin Ups 5,5,5,5,5@b/w+5lbs
Squat 5,5,5,5,0@235

Tweaked my back on second last set of squats. Should've failed the rep instead of botching my form. Hopefully it doesn't linger. Otherwise a good workout with improvements all around. Bodyweight is 195lbs.

Class was all rolling. First round with a good white belt. Smothered through his open guard to take back, submitted with a reverse ezekiel from back, and an armbar from back. Rolled the brown belt instructor who went easy on me but I still couldn't pass his guard, got tapped to an omoplata and a kimura. Rolled a big green belt and got a bunch of sweeps and taps, started to let up and played with him. I think he might have been slightly handicapped. Oops. Rolled another brown belt with positional battles. Got his back but couldn't get a submission.
