Just a fun little warm up. Divide the class in half, play hockey on your knees using your hands to slap the ball. You're allowed to pin and dominate people.

I have only read the last few posts on here, but i see you have trouble telegraphing your takedowns. Given that, have you considered a more grecho roman based approach, which uses the underhooks more than the legs for TD;s. Just a suggestion, as for a tall guy it would be easier to engage a clinch and underhook than a shoot and single or double leg.
Personnaly i dont have alot of experience but that is my unerstanding of one of the advantages of said school of wrestling.

That's what I was thinking... I definitely need more practice with both too. Unfortunately, my trainers tend to favor teaching shooting for the takedown. We do get time to drill whatever takedowns we want though, so I'll have to take a look at some technique and practice this one on my own. Thanks for the input!

I;m in UK so there is bugger all wrestling coaching, if the worst comes to the worst get yourself some instructional DVD's. You could do worse than Randy Coutures instructional stuff.

I had that problem too, wish the southpaw stance, I eventually learned orthodox, but when I was still using it (south) I would practice my stance in front of a mirror till it looked and felt right (both are key) and then practice shots, very slowly at first and then working up to full speed. This was in elementary school mind you, so I didn't have shit else to do, probably spent 30 minutes-1 hour on it a day during my first few seasons. Best of luck man. And the greco-roman idea sounds solid, its very fun as well, I will say from my experience it requires much greater strength to perform some of the upper body (only) clinch moves for a takedown, but you do get to dump people way harder than in normal wrestling. Im sure if you youtube it lots will come up.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Went to trial a new gym that just opened recently. They're 25% cheaper, bigger, and open much more. I'll also be switching my MMA gym's membership from monthly to yearly to save some more cash.

Turns out they didn't have any barbells shipped in yet so I couldn't do my routine. Just did the DB bench instead.

DB Bench 3,3,3,3,3,3 @ 75lbs

Will be back to finish the routine later.

BJJ

Decent class, got some practice with the omoplata for the first time. Feels awkward but I'll figure it out. I was mostly dominated in rolling, felt myself being sloppy and using too much force instead of technique. I'll get a grip on it and do better tonight. Going to start watching Saulo's Jiu Jitsu Revolution 2 today. Once I get through that I'll look into something on no-gi.

MMA Class

Lots of drills and circuit training followed by another drill working take downs/ground and pound. Practiced few standup combos with punches and kicks on the thai pads, felt good to hit stuff again but I felt myself tiring pretty fast..Then an armbar from side control and a little bit of rolling. Nothing particularly exciting happened during rolling but I felt I used much less energy and faired a bit better than yesterday.

BJJ tomorrow

Another day, another dollar. Lot's of work in the half guard today which I needed. Nothing spectacular in rolling to report. I've been slacking on watching vid's and my diet so I'll try to make an effort to turn that around some more, I'm tired of being mediocre in rolling.

Muay Thai/MMA tomorrow. I don't know when I'll finish my weights workout...maybe I'll train 7 days this week.
