Muay Thai

Shadowbox, heavybag, jab sparring, drilled blocking high kicks, jab step into a leg kick, jab hook leg kick,catching the push kick and countering.

MMA

Pummelling, technique was working from the over under position. Use overhook as a wizzer, pull other arm out and come back with a cross, move it behind their head and bring it down into a knee. Also a throw or two from the position. Also learned moving straight into a darce choke from the throw, also darce from standing, and when someone has your back. Some good moves.

Everything hurts now. For some reason I couldn't get to sleep last night so I scrapped the morning session. Will go tomorrow if the sleep pulls through.

Muay Thai

Skipping, **** I'm still shitty at skipping. I keep looking for a rope on the internet but still haven't bought one. I'll get on that. Today we focused only on boxing, especially footwork and mine needed some pointers. Shadowboxing, then practice side stepping and jabbing. Moving to the right the lead foot steps then the back foot follows, springing off as the back foot comes down. Moving to the left back foot steps and lead foot follows, springing off as the lead foot lands. Then we side stepped quicker, noted that when moving to the right, lead foot steps then back foot pivots behind, springing forward off of it so it's essentially moving into a right angle. Then we did a simple footwork thing with the heavybag. There's a line in front of the bag that you're constantly moving in and out of with your lead foot. As you step your lead foot past the line jab, then spring back, and so forth. Then 1-2, back. Then 1, back, 1-2, back. This was really awkward and tiring for me, which means next time I'm on the bag on my own time I'm going to bring some tape and work on this. I think the simple footwork stuff I learned today can improve my sparring 100% if I have the conditioning to maintain it. Did another drill of taking body shots against the wall.

MMA

Warmed up with guard passes and leap frogs. Technique was working guard passes and preventing them. On guard passes involving one leg coming forward first, hook around their knee from the outside, and drive in. Can also use your outside leg to come around the trapped leg and stretch it out for more control. Counter for this is basically come down to your knees in north/south and twist your torso, reaching over to their opposite side, putting your elbow tight to their midsection, kick back leg, and you're in side control.

Did some guard passes. I did decent and caught a triangle. Looking back now I did a good set up but I failed to finish it from guard because I forgot to change the angle. I just watched a dvd on this shit. Anyways, we rolled into mount with the triangle still on and finished.

Did rolling from a stand. When I'm tired I'm far too lazy to shoot in these things because I know my guard is my best position anyway, this is probably a bad habit. Anyways, did well again and landed an americana from mount. Kajan worked in with us and he kept me busy and confused. During the last roll he had me in an arm triangle but said "fight it", I worked out of it, eventually took his back and RNCed. He totally handed me the chance to escape, but I'll take it.

My mind and my body was completely exhausted today. Mega joint soreness, especially in my elbows. I've reached the '**** my life' point of the week. I'm going to look into another supplement for joint pain because fish oils are failing me. HGH was mentioned to me but isn't an option. I'll probably experiment with some new bullshit on the off chance that it'll actually work. I've seen the word 'Celadrin' thrown around but haven't researched it.

BJJ tomorrow afternoon and then some rest.

You can't go wrong working the 1-2 along with footwork on the heavy bag. Not sure what you mean by tape, though.

Ah. It's just a simple tool for beginner boxers like me. You set the tape in front of the bag so that when your lead foot is over, you're in range for a 1-2, and when you're lead foot is behind the tape, you're out of distance. Just a learning tool for jumping in and out of someone's range.

BJJ

Pumelling, guard pass drills, guard passes, etc. Elbows started to ache so I only did the first half. Just kind of went through the motions. In hindsight I should have just rested or did some training on my own.

Ordered some gulcosamine + msm to see if it helps with the joints. Also going to try out Beta Alanine which is supposed to delay the onset of muscle fatigue...we'll see if there's anything to it.

Conditioning

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 29
2 - 24
3 - 22
4 - 21

Continuing to fight for those inches. That felt horrible. Elbow soreness already hinting at a comeback. BJJ tonight.

You should take this supplement: Click

That link has a bunch of info about it, I've been taking it due to wrist pains, and it helps a lot. I also know a lot of people who have used it to get over knee pains, elbow injuries, etc.

Here's a link to buy some, too.

5 Rounds on the bag for a quick workout. Thinking more about my footwork and spacing. Started reading Saulo's and Silva's books yesterday and they're both REAL GOOD shit. I'll be through them both before I fight. Silva's is especially good for me because he does everything from a southpaw stance as well as exploring so much more of the standup than most books.

I missed BJJ last night because I found out last night that my Gi was still super stinky and sweaty, oops. MMA tonight.

MMA With thiago.

Thiago gave us some badass conditioning today, I don't have time to go through it all. Drilled lots of subs. Learned a deadly new one. Armbar from omoplata. I like this sub and will be looking to land this on some poor soul in the next week. Drilled escaping position. I can already feel shit from Saulo's book at work. Good stuff. Sparring at the pro gym tomorrow.
