Middleweight is speculation still I am a small light heavyweight if I'm off creatine. Jason Macdonald, for example, fills out pretty well at middleweight at 6'3.

Muay Thai -
Skipping, all boxing combos with partner, sparring. Was dominant in sparring but didn't have any quality opponents.

MMA -
More wrestling... defending the single leg, redirecting a double leg and then taking them down, etc. Instead of wrestling at the end I hit the bag for a few rounds. Felt much better, the striking endurance is coming back.

Knee is feeling pretty good, I'm nursing it like a baby. I've committed to heavy sparring next wednesday at the pro gym so hopefully the knee holds up.

Didn't train today. I'm underslept and I seem to be coming down with something, going to cram the Cold FX in and hope it's not the flu. Muay Thai tomorrow!

So definitely sick, but I think it's just a cold.

Kultar wasn't in today, I almost had to teach class. Warm up with skipping/bodyweight exercises, drilling on the bag and the wall, clinch fighting technique and practice, muay thai sparring. I felt real crappy today but sucked it up and did it.

Missed class on friday. I was tired and sick. I felt really guilty about it at first but now I'm over it.

Lifting
Squats 6,6,6 @ 225lbs
Deadlifts 6,6,6 @ 225lbs
DB Bench 6,6,4 @ 85lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,6,4 @ b/w+20lbs

AB Complex
Weighted Twist Crunch 20,20@45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15,15@25lbs
Cable Crunch 20,20@65kgs
AB Plank 1:30, 1:30

First day back to lifting lower body, did slightly lower weights to ease the knee in, but it felt fine. It only hurts now when it's twisting or I push the range of motion.

Went straight to jiu jitsu, caught the end of beginners classed and did a guard pass. Triangled a guy but he was saved by the bell before I could finish. Passed his guard. Technique was about keeping strong control in side control, as well as a wrist lock and an armbar from there. Lots of good rolls and I felt good despite having just finished a full body workout. Was dominant against the first blue, and got him with an arm triangle. Beat another blue positionally... Was also dominant against a purple and had his back a few times but couldn't finish. Dominated a green belt and his nose started to bleed but that's nothing to gloat about Good day. Rest tomorrow and then burpees and jiu jitsu monday.

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 38
2 - 27
3 - 23
4 - 20
5 - 20
Total - 128

First burpees in a long time. Seems a bit high... I don't know if I miscounted but I'm pretty sure I got it right. I started busting them out real fast in the first round but that didn't last long. This was my first time doing them at the MMA gym right before class and everyone was looking at me like I was crazy.

BJJ

Missed warm up for class as I sat there snacking and drinking and trying to get motion in my arms and legs back. Technique was taking back from turtle, armbar/escapes. Did average in guard passes.

Advanced class technique was all with trapping the arm in an overhook and gripping their collar. First was getting that grip. Then we learned the loop choke which is just your free hand reaching behind their neck, thumb in collar, bring elbow over their head and across neck. Works decently. Then we learned a sweep from the overhook, hip escape to the side with the over hook, causing them to lean out, top foot goes on the inside of their leg near the groin, bottom leg kicks their supporting knee out as you sweep. Then we learned a submission for when they try to free the trapped arm.

In rolling I did pretty good. Had a good battle with the purple that I beat on monday, he took me into my guard where we batltled for girps for awhile, broke guard, caught him in half guard, then eventually bridge and rolled into his half guard, then into his side control. Dominated a few white belts...arm bar, ezekiel. Had a lame positional battle with a blue that was me stuck in his half guard for most of class. Good day. Muay Thai/MMA tomorrow.

I hurt my shoulder on monday. I think it was while practicing that submission. Not pleased.

Thursday I got called in to teach class! That was a different experience. Taught womens kickboxing and muay thai because Kultar is in Mexico. Got a bit of a workout myself.

Friday MMA class. Warm up, passing guard into side control, trapping outside arm and spinning around to sink an arm triangle. Guard passes and rolling. Was dominant but didn't have very tough opponenents.

My left rotator cuff appears to be damaged, it hurts all day but once I get going in training it feels fine. Weird. My right elbow is aching again, and I just hurt my knee a bit in rolling today, though it feels okay now. Due to outside stresses my sleep has been a goddamn mess and I've contracted a brutal cold. I've been trying out some prescription sleep aids that seems to be helping me even out now. Now I just need to get a doctor and an actual prescription for them. Still in a weird headspace right now but things will clear up, I'll win these next fights and I'll get out of this bad environment.

BJJ tomorrow and lifting with whatever doesn't hurt.

I'm curious to know who worked harder, the womens' kickboxing class or MT, or if it's impossible to draw a comparison.

There's slackers on either side. The girls class has the regulars that will concentrate and put more effort than many in a guy's class...on the other hand there was 2 particular new girls that were giggling and making eyes at me for most of the class.

Same with the guys, really...minus anyone making eyes at me.

It was easier for me to teach the guys, however.The focus on technique and applicable combos gives you more material to work with than giving the girls a full body workout. I made good use of the burpee on either end though, which felt nice because nobody ever has us doing burpees around the gym. It's good to bring something unique

I ask because my gym trains many amateur fighters, one of whom is female. Not of your caliber, however many women there are curious to expand their horizons, or simply become a more knowledgeable, well-rounded participant in combat sports.

IDK if this is because of MMA becoming slightly more mainstream, or if they're inspired by the female fighter, or they want to take class with their husbands/BFs or what. I do know that the majority of them work very hard and while they may not aspire to step in the ring/cage in actual competition, they love the sport.

Most of the time they take a backseat to the guy who are going to compete in terms of physical mat space and instruction time, which is discouraging, but understandable.
