Good shit. It's really cool that you get to roll with purples and even some browns on a pretty regular basis. Also really cool that the brown belt doesn't have an ego and is willing to teach/help. Keep up the hard work buddy.

Today I did a workout like I haven't done in a year. It was full of egotistic exercises that have very little practical use, but are fun to do. Considering that it's been at least a year since I've done these exercises, I was pleased to see that my working weights were mostly only 5-10lbs off what they used to be.

DB Curl 6,5,5 @ 50lbs
EZ Bar Curl 6 @ 95lbs
DB Bench 6,5,5 @ 80lbs
Dips 9 @ bodyweight + 20lbs
Military Press 6,5,3 @ 115lbs
BB Shrug 8,8,8 @ 225lbs
DB Rows 6,6,6 @ 100lbs

Left a bit earlier than I wanted to because I was tiring out and had worked up a cold sweat. Fun but mostly useless workout.

BJJ..Going to skip the details. Had a couple good rolls but was probably on the losing side of most. I did however get a guy in a SICK triangle and his ear bled all over me. Awesome. I'm starting to get a bit of swelling in on of my ears myself, going to get it drained, likely on monday. Don't want that cauliflower ear.

Went to a walk in clinic yesterday. Doctor had actually never done anything like this before and was kind of puzzled. I just explained it to him then he wiped it with some rubbing alcohol, jabbed it with the syringe and sucked a sizable amount of blood out of my ear. Just told me to keep pressure on it.

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 30
2 - 24
3 - 21
4 - 22
5 - 23
Total - 120

Improved on last week quite well. Though I felt like I didn't do well, turns out I'm just 4 off from my current best.

I'm not liking the beta alanine anymore. I feel nauseous as hell.

Going to try to hit up Muay Thai + MMA Classes tonight, see how the day works out.

Muay Thai

3 rounds skipping, I was actually skipping well today. Shadowboxing. Combos with partner. Good class, feels nice to throw punches again. I think my footwork is getting really slick. I didn't do M.M.A. because I want to avoid grinding on my ear until the end of the week because...

Big Nog is coming to town!!! This Saturday at our pro gym to hold a seminar. I'm going to do the gi and no gi for a 5+ hour jiu jitsu fest. I'm stoked.

What's lidocaine? Some kind of numbing I suppose?

Beta Alanine is a pre workout supplement I've been trying out. It buffers against lactic(?)acid that gives you the tired, burning sensation in muscles. So it's basically meant to help you go harder for longer.

Lidocaine is a numbing agent, yes, generally used prior to a procedure involving a large needle, as it sounds like draining your ear did.

Can I get beta-alanine anywhere or do I have to go to GNC?

BJJ Class. Not going over everything, most notable technique was working on the ezekiel from mount.

In guard passes I did awesome. Kimura sweep.

In rolling, first round he get in my side control and controlled me the whole round. Second round with the same guy it was more back and forth, I got mounted but we finished in my guard. Next guy I rear naked choked, then later got mount and he gave up. Good class.

Minotauro seminar isn't this week. It's next sunday. Looking forward to it!
