BJJ

Warm up, drilled armbars from guard, armbars from mount, kimuras, kimura sweeps, countering kimura sweeps. Advanced class was an hour of rolling. I got through it all without sitting out a round and felt pretty good. I'm starting to hit that submission I learned a week or two where it's basically an americana except with your legs and in side control. Got it 2 or 3 times. Also got an americana, a triangle, and 2 armbars. I got triangled twice by a very good purple belt, he did a real good job of tying me up into them. I fought them for a long time and it was hell but he eventually finished it, then did it again. Great class. My training partner is going to Thailand in a week or so to train at Tiger Muay Thai for a month or two and this was my last BJJ class with him. Guess I gotta start being more social around the gym. Good class, right shoulder and right elbow are still hurting. Muay Thai/MMA tomorrow.

Hey, illmatic.

I read all your training log in 1 day and it really reminded me of training and motivated me. I just had to say that you're doing great, keep up the work - it is really interesting for me to read your log. Only one question - how are you doing so many classes and not getting tired? I used to do only boxing, in a good gym and the training was 3.5 hours. I couldn't even do anything after it, so how can you do 2 classes and still be moving?

Cheers.

Hey man, thanks alot for registering and showing support! My classes are smaller. The downside of training everything at once is that you're spread very thin and can't really give one specific area the attention that someone only doing that sport would be able to. My jiu jitsu classes are about 2.5 hours, my striking and MMA classes are only 1 - 1.5 hours each, so in reality I'm not training more than your boxing. The downside is I'm a jack of all trades but not particularily good at any one of them.

Ack. Tournament did not go well. I got taken down and spent alot of time in the bottom of side control/half guard. Eventually turtled and pulled him into my side control but got swept. I need more tournament experience, I was not relaxed and able to impose my game. This guy was good though, he trains at our pro gym, went on to win the division and the blue belt open weight, oh and he had Bibiano Fernandes coaching him. Still, I honestly felt like I could have won this match. Not only that, but in the takedown my foot dug into the mat and my knee overextended big time. It hurt like ****, I thought I ruined my knee. It looks painful in the video but I don't think I'll get a chance to post it because my friends leaving with the camera to thailand for a few months in like 2 days. I can't compete today and think I'm out of training for a week or so. It's nothing serious, I can walk on it, however it's sore as shit and giving me a limp. Sucks but it happens.

Lifting
DB Bench 6,6,6 @ 85lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,6,5 @ b/w+20lbs
Military Press 6,6,6 @ 115lbs

AB Complex
Weighted Twist Crunch 20,20 @45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15,15 @20lbs
Cable Crunch 20,20 @75kgs
AB Plank 1:15, 1:15

Well my knee still feels sketchy as predicted. Not too much pain unless I twist it or challenge the range of motion. Today I improvised a leg free workout just to stay in the game. Added weight to Bench and Chins, but will have to work at this new weight for a bit before moving on. If I do end up doing military presses again in my life, I can do more weight than today's. I'm likely out of class for awhile but am thinking about going in at some point to work boxing only on the bag.

I read most of your log and you did some good job there.

Can I ask you about burpees? You did them with full push up? Or just simple burpees?

Congratulation on your first fight!

Pushup Makes it more of a full body thing.

Thank you!

I do early morning prep and short order cooking in a restaurant usually 7-8 hour days. It's for the most part pretty relaxed but I am standing and moving around all day so it makes training a task sometimes. I can't imagine training after 11 hour days with any consistency.

What's your goal from training? You want to fight? Unless you're able to cut back hours, I'd focus on one particular aspect for the time being, ie conditioning, muay thai, or bjj.

Other than that all I can say is nap between work and training. I have a very hard time getting proper sleep because training often ends around 9pm and my body and mind don't wind down until 1 or 2 am, and then I'm up at 6:30 to go to work. I've used caffeine to work around this but my body seems to be really bad at handling it because it can leave me unable to sleep and it becomes a vicious cycle. I've pretty much developed mild insomnia. It's not an easy road.
