I've tried it. Lots of sleep supplements or sleep aids help you stay in a deep sleep, but that doesn't do anything for my problem. My issue is of falling asleep and it didn't help there.

many people are opposed to prescription sleep aids but I know a ton of people who are very satisfied with Lunesta, Ambien and the like.

Woohoo, first day back. I feel decent, my stomachs still a bit weak but my appetite has been getting stronger exponentially. I couldn't eat for 24 hours there.

Muay Thai
10 Mins skipping, 5 rounds of 5 minutes on the heavy bag, 5 or so ab exercises, 100 rep sets, Pele you bastard. I wasn't expecting any mercy today and I definitely got none. I was pretty tired at everything, the body's definitely not optimal, but it's enough that I can get back into the swing of things without interfering too much. I didn't do MMA because I was feeling drained.

Tomorrow our trainer fights to defend his lightweight belt. (Kajan Johnson in montreal, XMMA)

While I'm at it, I might as well do some shameless promotion for Kajan.Sherdog Profile

Kajan's 14-10-1. It's easy to be mislead by the record, but Kajan started fighting after only 2 months of training. He also fought 9 times in that first year. Lately, he's 9-1-1 in his last 11, and keeping up a steady pace.

Tomorrow night he's rematching against his only draw. I haven't seen the first fight, but I heard that it was a close decision, and he was fighting a french Canadian fighter in Montreal, so things are a bit questionable. He's under those circumstances again.


Here's his most recent fight, I think they were hoping for a bit more from the other guy.


Another


And one more.

He's also a ******* awesome trainer, but that doesn't matter to anyone here.

That'll be the very last resort. We'll see what happens.

just dont try to stay awake after taking a prescription sleep aid. it's seriously a psychadelic experience. my brother was talking nonsense in fact ten minutes fter taking one of my over the counter sleep aids.

No classes being ran today, did my own thing with partner. First we did combos on the thai pads, then on the kick sheild, some push kick drills, then held the bag for a 100 kicks each, then 100 knees on the kick sheild. I finished off with 50 1-2 combos on the bag just because I feel a bit weak as far as shoulder endurance goes. Felt good, but I'm definitely still a little weaker than before. It's coming along. My shin splints are acting up, but they're okay.

Tomorrow I'm going to do some conditioning.

Nice. Kajan won by armbar first round, no video yet.

Went to the afternoon BJJ class.

Guard pass drills, hook an sickle drills, guard breaks, picking up partner, armbar drill, etc. Technique was a collar choke combo, reverse scissor sweep, and lots of stuff from butterfly guard and X guard that I'm not even going to try to name. Rolled 3 rounds, They were all pretty back and forth positionally, I almost got a couple, but no submissions. Debating hitting the gym tonight. I probably will.

I drove to the gym on saturday to find to my dismay that they close at like 6:00PM. That sucks. I watched some Demian Maia BJJ Dvds with the trainining partner, at least.

Explosive Conditioning

Clean and Jerk 3,3,3 @ 105lbs
Snatch 3,3,3 @ 65lbs

Burpee Circuit
1:30, rest, 1:30

10lbs to the olympic lifts. Starting to get more familiar with them and so we slowly increase the weight. I added the burpees today. I think they'll be great for maintaining explosiveness and building endurance. I got my ass kicked by them today, my legs felt like rubber and I burned out faster than I expected. This kind of sucks, but it's also a good thing because I've found a weak spot that will provide alot of improvement with work. I also have to wonder how the effects of the stomach flu that started 8 days could still be lingering, can't use that as an excuse anymore though.

The short term goal is to do a mock amateur fight in burpees. 3 rounds of 3 minutes with 1 minute rest inbetween. The long term goal is to do a mock championship pro fight in burpees (5x5 minutes). I want to reach the long term goal by the time I fight, I don't know if this is doable yet, but we'll find out. It's about 16 weeks until I fight, which means 16 sessions of these. I might do them twice a week if I'm not on pace and I can squeeze it into the already demanding schedule. This and the barbell complex are going to be the heart of my cardio.

BJJ tonight.
