MMA

Warmup run, some tumbling. We did some new tumbling with partners...one was where a guy is on his back grabs the partners shins, then the partner grabs his shins, so both of their arms are extended and one is in the air. Then they roll so that the bottom guy rolls into the top position, and so on. In the other on your partner grabs your shins and you grab theirs and you do a front roll together. Weird and hard to explain. Then we did a variety of neck bridges and rolling around on your head. Then alot of handstand exercises where I just worked on maintaining a handstand for more than 3 seconds.

Technique was just shadowing shooting for the double leg and taking down. Then he broke down shooting for the single leg and dragging back to swing them down. Also practiced moving back to their ankle to straighten the leg and then swinging. We drilled this pretty constantly. My knee was starting to hurt from all that twisting so I didn't particpate in the king of the mats for the last 15 mins.

I'm going to a concert tomorrow so no class. I'll try to convince my partner to go do some conditioning with me tomorrow beforehand though.

205! My walking weight varies between 210 and 215. It's an amateur bout, 3x3minute rounds. Full MMA rules as far as I know. It'll be in a ring.

Conditioning

Burpees 5 rounds of 3 minutes
Heavybag 3 rounds of 3 minutes, 30 second punch out drill

Another 30 seconds to the rounds of burpees. Going to leave it at this and start counting so I can increase the intensity everytime. Left the bag a bit early to catch a concert.

Conditioning

Barbell Complex (70lbs, 6 sets, 6 reps, 60 seconds rest)
Good Morning
Overhead Squat
Deadlift
Bent Over Row
Reverse Grip Curl
Military Press
Skullcrusher

Did 6,6,6,6,6,3. Added 5lbs. Got pretty far in but failed on second last set.

Ab Circuit

Twisting Crunch 20,20,20 @45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15,15 @20lbs
Cable Crunch 20,20 @65kg
Ab Plank 1:35,1:35

Got one set further on the BB Complex. I hit the what I like to call '**** my life' point around the 3rd set. Pushed through to the last set where unfortunately my forearms seized up and weren't capable of reverse curling the bar. Going to finish the sets next time. The ab circuit has also reached the failure point, added another 10secs to the planks but my abs seized up on my 3rd circuit through and I didn't finish. Good workout. Lower back hurts a bit but should be fine.

MMA gym is closed for easter.

I drove to vernon on the weekend to see some more fights. This time we had a bunch of guys fighting. Grimshaw came out showing great striking skills and once it went to the ground he went straight for an armbar and then transitioned to finish with a triangle. Beautiful. A couple of the guys I've met and had my ass kicked by at the fortress fought. One guy who beats me up but I can be competitive with got an INCREDIBLE knockout. Another guy won the main event with a RNC near the end of the fight. Another guy that I train with the most had a tough fight with a freaky muscle bound beast and put up a war but had a heartbreaking loss. I beleive it was via armbar. 2 other guys fought from our camp but I haven't trained with them.

Things I've noted at this fight
-Bill Mahood puts on a very proffessional show with able fighters, he stacked it with Revolution fighters and seemed to pretty fair matchups
-I feel like a small 205. There was a guy fighting at 195 that must have been heavier than me. I need to get eating so that I'm cutting from 220. Gotta eat,eat, eat these next 2 months.
-Grimshaw is a very skilled and technical BJJ guy but when he went to the ground he was striking like CRAZY between everything he did. I need to put more focus on constant striking.


More conditioning tomorrow and MMA tomorrow evening.

Conditioning

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 26
2 - 20
3 - 20
4 - 18
5 - 19
Total - 103

Still lots of gasping and stalling but gave a good effort. The numbers only go up from here.

Starting to add extra shit to all my protein shakes to boost the daily caloric intake. Yesterday I was fluctuating to a record low at 206lbs. Today I'm 211lbs. Goal is a steady 220.

MMA Tonight.

MMA

Warmup run Kajan had lots of new exercises to tire my ass out. Technique was shadowing shooting. Then he broke down single leg take downs, and then switching to double leg take downs. Drilled it for like an hour. Then we all sparred wrestling, I did well but it's pretty much expected, I was bigger and more experienced than everyone. Then king of the mats, same thing. The whole time today I was feeling soooo burnt out, must have been the burpees earlier today. I was still doing alright, however in the last like 2 minutes of king of the mat I hurt my ******* knee again. This is frustrating. I just want to train.

Hit the bag today just did about 15 mins, just boxing and elbows. Knee feels sketchy so I'm out of sparring for awhile longer...

Weighed 215lbs today.

Did Muay Thai and MMA classes last night and BJJ this afternoon. The knee has felt fine recently but I'm being careful. I did start using headmkicks last night with no problems. I think its direct impact to the front of my knee that triggers it which means my big threats are falling with my weight onto that knee, kneeing the bag, and get leg kicked. I got my third stripe in BJJ today which means I'm past halfway to a blue. Got a bit of joint soreness going on, should be fine with some ice. UFC tonight and rest tomorrow.
