MMA

Technique was straight ankle lock, from inside of their guard with one shield up and in their groin, trap leg by hooking arm around and under, gripping right at the ankle with hand locked under the other. Step up with free leg and plant foot on their chest, then fall back, pulling while twisting torso to face the mat. Then 2 escapes. With either, lock foot so that it's not going to straighten out and sit up. With the first escape pull their foot and hip to the open side, pulling into a mount. The other one uses the other hand to pull their foot the other way, planting it on the mat, leg swings over so you're facing around, then either run out or spawl into side control.

In rolling I did alright. First guy I was dominant and landed a kimura starting from side control and ending in reverse mount. Then got a kimura sweep and for pretty much the first time swung around and went from the kimura sweep to actualy finishing the kimura in reverse mount. I think that's all I got on him.

Next guy was one of my better training partners who's fighting on the card I was trying to get on in the 17th. We were in a pissing match to take the other guy down so I just sucked it up and pulled guard. Got a nice submission from guard with an overhook controlling an arm, as he bent it to pull it free I trapped it and cranked. Quick tap That's the submission that I hurt my shoulder on in jiu jitsu like last week. I never thought I'd even us that submission, guess I was wrong. Also from guard as he was standing I kept on an arm and tried to do the sweep Kajan was showing me when they stack you in an armbar, he tapped before I could sweep. Awesome. The time between when I learn something and when I can use it is really shortening. Spent the rest of the round in my guard trying to work for something but I was truly stuck for the rest of the round and ate a few punches. Last guy was a new kid who was strong as **** and I basically sat on top of half guard while he squeezed the hell out of me. I had nothing as far as getting free, and he even swept me. I managed to get mount somehow by the end of the round but damn he was strong.

Good class but I wasn't feeling phenomenal, thank god this week is almost over and I can sleep in tomorrow. I got a nice fat lip today. Tonight I get to use a co-worker's hottub so I am a happy camper.

Lifting + BJJ tomorrow.

Lifting
Squats 6,6,6 @ 235lbs
Deadlifts 6,6,6 @ 235lbs
DB Bench 6,6,4 @ 85lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,6,5 @ b/w+25lbs

AB Complex
Weighted Twist Crunch 20,20@45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15,15@25lbs
Cable Crunch 20,20@75kgs
AB Plank 1:40, 1:40

Good workout, kept the same weights because last weeks was noticeably difficult. More weight to squats and DLs next week. Ab circuit felt extra brutal today. Body weight is about 212lbs.

BJJ
Showed up just in time to roll. Had a half guard with a blue belt, eventually passed and got a kimura from side, first time he turtle and rolled me over. Tried again and finished it. Next blue I rolled twice. First roll I kept his back for most of the round but couldn't finish. His defense was too active to get Saulo's move. Second round I got mount and finished with an americana and an armbar. I think I had another roll with someone else but I don't remember it. After class I joined in on some no gi with Dave and two purples. We switched off doing 2 minutes stand up with everyone. I got mostly worked. When I finally did dart around and get a single leg on Dave he did the typical kimura thing where no matter where I take him down, he's in side control tapping me with a kimura. Probably tapped about 4 times to the same sub. The purples posed other threats, one almost finished me in a standing guillotine but my ego made me fight through it. Then we drilled leg locks on one of the purples because his next fight is apparently a leg lock guy. Then we shark tanked him. Good times. I'm so sore.

Up at 5:30 to join the lady's class and get a feel for the workout. Pretty challenging, they liked to be pushed. The general layout is a warmup run, over/unders with a skipping rope, a full body circuit, some drilling on the shield, and then some basic technique with a partner. I'll put something similar together for wednesday and do as mush as I can with them so I get a bit of a workout too. Got the keys to the gym

Then did BJJ tonight. I'm not going to go through it but it was a decent night with lots of rolling. My joints are aching a bit already and it's only monday. Frigging thumb is sprained still on one hand and ring finger is sprained on the other. Didn't do burpees today, will squeeze them in elsewhere this week.

I'm backed up on updates. Tuesday did Muay Thai and MMA. Felt really drained.

Wednesday morning I taught the ladies kickboxing in the morning but sleeping troubles prevented me from getting a nap after work - I opted for rest that evening. My sleep's a ******* pain in the ass. I'll do a breakdown of what I do for the ladies in the morning maybe after next week's, kinda lazy right now.

There's an "MMA Expo" coming nearby pretty soon with a grappling tourney, I'll probably enter it. I'm not satisfied with the last tournament's outcome, and my knee feels mostly better.

I've been trying to get ahold of a doctor to see about my sleep. One office told me that nobody in town was taking patients and to go to a walk in clinic. The walk in clinic told me to get a family doctor. I think I found a guy taking patients, will call him today. This is why I don't bother with healthcare.

Muay Thai tonight with Kajan.

Muay Thai

Skipping, Shadowboxing, Combos with partner, sparring, clinch work. I felt awful leading up to class but did fine during it. That's how it usually goes though.

I just got reminded that there's Tiger Balm's internation tourny next weekend in Vancouver. They have an MMA addition this year but the rules look retarded, and I have a feeling it would be frustrating. I'll be doing the BJJ and No Gi tournys that day though. There's also the MMA Expo which off the top of my head is April 11ish. Then I believe my gym is hosting another grappling tournament begginning of May. So I'm going to try to compete as much as I can.. 3 days/6 tournaments should at least keep me occupied. I feel like winning something again.

Friday - MMA

Technique was crucifix, plus a keylock and triangle from there. Dominant all round in rolling. Feel so exhausted lately. I had to help these people move and did some heavy lifting for like 7 hours so that's my final workout for the week. Gotta snap out of this funk and get a solid few days of rolling before the BJJ tourny next weekend.

Fight night should be good tomorrow!

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 32
2 - 26
3 - 23
4 - 21
5 - 23
Total - 125

Felt crappy but I guess I'm 4 up from last week.

BJJ

I got dominated alot today. Well not dominated, but I lost many of my rolls, tapped to an armbar from a good white belt, and collar choked in north south by a blue. I did get to beat up a few whites though. Just wasn't in my groove. Anyways, good class.

I'm registered for the MMA Expo to do no gi and gi as well as the open weights which are giving paid flights and registration to the abu dhabi qualifiers in Toronto or something like that. Fat chance, but the tournament should be fun. The Tiger Balms are this weekend and I've got all the figured out but will register day of when I get there.

Probably going to lift tomorrow and then do Muay Thai/MMA that evening, wednesday will likely be my last day of training so I can be rested for the tournament.

Bibiano did our gym proud last night. He won a very close and good fight against Joachim Hansen. Look it up!

Upped weights on squats and deadlifts successfully. Finally finished all my sets on bench. Only went through the ab circuit once, boohoo, I'll be do another one when I teach kickboxing tomorrow. Lifting and Burpees definitely should have at least 24 hours between them, my legs and chest felt exhausted, good workout regardless. Muay Thai + MMA tonight.

I keep forgetting my note pad at the gym. The people that work there probably think I'm a crazy person when they read workouts alternating with grocery lists.

Muay Thai

Rope over unders, kicks on the shield with partners, sparring. My striking endurance is awful. Must fix this.

MMA

Warm up drills, half guard sweeps. Rolling. Did well.

Gotta be up to teach the Ladies Kickboxing tomorrow at 6am so it's time I got to sleep.
