Lifting

Squat 6,6,6 @ 225lbs
Bench 6,6,5 @ 75lbs
Deadlift 6,6,6 @ 225lbs
Chin Up 6,6,5 @ B/W + 10lbs

+20lbs to squats and deadlifts over last workout a month or so ago. + 5lbs to bench and weighted chin ups. Early failure on bench and chins, will finish em next week.

My weight is suprisingly low right now at 205lbs. I've had some slacking in the diet region since the day that was suppossed to be my fight. Have drank a few times. I'm starting to feel the desire to get back into things seriously. I leaned out my diet like whoa recently. Strongly considering dropping to fighting weight of 185, and a walk around weight of 195-200. I should have an easier time finding an opponent at a lower weight class, and let me tell you, if I keep my strength and shave off a little bit more weight, I'll be completely ******* ripped.

BJJ. Showed up a bit late and missed the warmup. Technique was armbarring. Dave reminded me about a little trick where you're about halfway into getting an armbar, you lock a guard so to speak around them to keep their posture broken. Then you bring your leg over and finish. Should help me land armbars. Did decent in guard passes. Didn't get passed and landed a sweep.

In advanced we worked from the mount again. Learned a new kind of mount that's basically to set up an arm bar. From mount your putting a knee next to their head and the opposite leg comes up to a foot against their ribs. From there you can work for a collar choke to set up an armbar. Gotta remember as I armbar to lean away, towards their legs, so that I can have the armbar locked in before I'm pulling back. You're an idiot to armbar from mount if you have a low % finish on it.

Did pretty well in rolling. First roound I finished with that very armbar from the mount setup we learned. Always nice pulling off something you just learned. Second rolls I was mostly stuck in side control and half guard. Usual problems with this guy. I had sometime in guard, but definitely lost the round. Next round was with a blue belt girl thats always a tough roll. I barely contained and managed to keep her back or mount for most of the round. Finished with an armbar from back which I don't think I've ever done before. Next round was back and forth. I somehow pulled off a wicked sweep out of side control that must have been alot of luck. Was also caught in mount but defended an ezekiel. Eventually won with a collar choke from mount.

Good rolls. I was sore as shit today from the squats but did fine.

I got told by one of the boss figures that to get a fight I should talk to Kajan about fighting in Bellingham. Also told me I need to start showing up at the fortress. After this week I'm going to Ontario for a week to visit family. Once I'm back I'll be in full swing and will start sparring sessions again.

MMA

Warm up shit, technique was shooting for single legs and taking down. Practiced then drilled it. Also did work from side control. Securing the position, americana, straight arm lock, kimura. As we as two escapes. In rolling I got two arm triangles and an americana. I had another roll that was back and forth positionally but pretty even. I had another roll where I got positionally dominated. Need to learn proper procedure for when someone has side control and is moving for north south. Good class. Gym is closed tomorrow, probably going to go do burpees or something.

I missed a day because my left wrist appears to be sparined. The MMA gym was closed anyways. Today I did my last class for a week or so as I'm going to visit some family in Ontario. Unfortunately I'm missing my chance to do Minotauro's seminar as I now have to work tomorrow. I will be watching some BJJ dvds and reading more of Anderson's and Saulo's books over the break. I think I'll try to do a routine of light conditioning over the break. I'm thinking skip 30 minutes in the morning and shadowbox 5 rounds every night. Both are so light that I won't be interfering with giving my joints and tendons a quality break.

BJJ

Pumelling, guard pass drills, arm bar drill, practiced using the guard type thing to keep their posture broken during an armbar. Also did a standing guard pass. I got this one working but I like Kajan's MMA one better. For advanced class Dave just asked if anyone had any questions before we rolled. I asked for some help protecting from the north south. He basically told me to use the gi to free space and get my arm to the other side effectively keeping them in side control. In no gi I can just forearm across the throat for the same purpose.

Had a bunch of good rolls. In one particular roll the guy had my back and I was finding myself mentally ready to give up. Persevered and ended ended the roll mounted on him. Didn't get subbed but the only subs I got were on much smaller opponents. Arm triangle, 2 armbars, americana.

Back from a week long vacation to visit family. Lots of laziness, drinking, and eating of junk food. The good new is I'm refreshed mentally and physically and eager to jump back into it. My numbers are slightly down as expected, I think it'll take a week max to get back to what I was earlier, and then I can start moving into new territory. I have no desire to drink and have a new found desire to eat super healthy. I'm jumping straight into twice a day workouts, with a one hour early morning workout focusing primarily on the stand up. I'm heading to the pro gym for sparring next wednesday. With all this happening I'll be right on track for getting that first fight and being better than I ever could have been on june 19th.


Yesterday Lifting


Squats 3x6@225lbs
Deadlifts 3x6@225lbs
DB Bench Press 3x6@75lbs
Weighted Chin ups 3x6@bodyweight + 10lbs


Today

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 32
2 - 21
3 - 21
4 - 19
5 - 18
Total - 111

I can definitely feel the week of slacking's effect. No worries. Muay Thai + MMA tonight.

Muay Thai

3 rounds skipping, 3 rounds shadowboxing, combos on the kick sheild, combos with gloves and shin guards.

MMA

Warm up run + tumbling, shadowed the double leg take down, practiced shooting with partners, practiced taking down. Learned a new one where you shoot the double leg, once you're on their side you run forwards with their legs, and then change directions, lifting your far arm into their arm pit and pulling on the back of their leg with the other. Works decent. Then we did rounds sparring takedowns, then we did king of the mats with takedowns. Did alright, I'm also bigger and for the most part more experienced though. I'm certainly no wrestler right now.

So I saw that Brandon McRae commented on your log on Sherdog... I would definitely try to hit him up to train with, and listen to his advice; he knows his shit.
