Wimped out on training yesterday.

Lifting
Squats 6,6,6 @ 255lbs
Deadlifts 6,6,6 @ 255lbs
DB Bench 6,6,4 @ 85lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,5,3 @ b/w+25lbs

AB Complex
Weighted Twist Crunch 20@45lbs
Decline Reverse Crunch 15@b/w
Cable Crunch 20@75kgs
AB Plank 1:50

Upped weights on squats and deadlifts successfully. More weight to deadlifts but all other weights stay the same next week. Felt slightly weaker, especially on the chin ups. Can't tell if its because of the drug, or because I missed last weeks workout, or something else.

In BJJ I did just awful in guard passes. Technique was basically going over what GSP should have done to lock up and finish his kimura on Dan Hardy. Also did some work with kimura from guard. One was a sweep where you lock that kimura on, get both feet hooking inside his legs, then let him think he can pass as you elevate a leg, and grab and lift his knee. Dave was emphasizing to me that if you have that kimura locked up, getting your guard pass, isn't the end of what you can do, so hold on. Then we shark tanked a guy going to the pan ams. Nobody seemed down to roll after class so I left. Oh yeah, got my second stripe on my blue.

Good class but I felt really gassed. Sparring's going to be bad on tuesday. I'm going to pick up some syringes today, I've got some swelling in my ear from doing the thai clinch that I'll get drained tomorrow.

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 31
2 - 26
3 - 23
4 - 23
5 - 22
Total - 125

One more than last week

BJJ, guard pass technique, guard pass drills, advanced technique was escapes. Triangle escape is grabbing the knee with both hands, step out on the knees side and drive to the mat, make space and sneak a hand in and drive it through. Standing guillotine escape, nearest hand grabs wrist attacking the throat, other hand reaches over their shoulder and grabs gi at the upper back to relieve pressure. Step around to the side opposite your head, get your one leg behind theirs and knee at the back of their knee to drive them to the mat in side control...just a matter of muscling your head out from there. Then did turtle escape with two hooks in.

Lots of good rolls...some back and forth and finished the round mounted on a blue, finished a round with back mount on a purple and pulled off one of the new sweeps I learned. Had a great positional battle (had his back for a moment) and threatened some armbars with a brown but ended on the bottom of half guard. Tapped a white belt with a kimura from reverse mount, americana, ezekiel, arm triangle.

I drained my ear on sunday but I may have to do it again next weekend, especially if it gets alot of irritation all week... it seems to be disfiguring a bit.

Good class, tomorrow afternoon I'm going to the other gym for heavy sparring with the pros. Gonna be a tough day. We'll see if I can make it that evening back home too.

Sparring

2X 3:00 Stand up only
2X 3:00 Stand up with takedowns
2X 5:00 MMA Sparirng


Did alright, didn't win any rounds but wasn't slaughtered either. So better than I expected. I managed a kimura sweep and had some strong control on a very strong fighter. Ate alot of punches from him in the standup, my striking endurance is too shitty to keep people at bay right now. Also got to spar Thiago Gonclaves who's very good but also pretty relaxed.

Gonna attempt a nap and muay thai + mma in a couple hours.

Didn't get my nap

3 rounds skipping. Basic backing up and attacking footwork with a partner, first going straight, then moving in circles. Then a 1-2, skipping diagonally to the right, 2. Then 1-2-3, step slide to the left, lead upper, 2. Then doing one and switching to the other one, back and forth. Confusing.

MMA technique was escapes. Triangle escape, standing and guard guillotine escape. A couple good rolls, good class.

Ladies Kickboxing

Skipping w/bodyweight exercises between rounds.
Duck walks, crab walks, Plyo wheelbarrows w/ partner.
1-2-3 combo, 1-2-3 clinch knee knee, 1-2-3 clinch knee knee push off for a kick
2 rounds, 1:30 on the heavybag, then 1:30 burpees
Ab circuit and stretch.

I feel genuinely burnt out this evening and have no regrets about taking the evening off to sit around and play some call of duty. Anyone play?

Ack. Got called in to cover for Kajan. Did a kids class, womens class, and mens class. That's a long day after doing a full day of work. I got lots of training in along with the classes though, plenty of burpees and bag work. Tomorrow the MMA gym is closed but I'll be hitting up the weights gym, probably going to work on that striking endurace with their heavybag.

Finally finished all sets on bench, more weight next week. Same weights for everything else. Good workout, felt strong.

After lifting I went to hit the bag for a bit, 3 minute rounds with 1 minute rest. I'm going to focus on the same simple combos until my fight... no point in trying to master a lot of stuff now, just going to get my striking endurance up and have a simple striking game of 1-2's and left kicks ingrained in my muscle memory.

1 - Jabs only
2 - 1-2's
3- 1-2-3's
4- 1-left kick
5- 1-2-1-left kick

No BJJ today, got my ear drained again last night and want to give it 3 days without people pressuring the shit out of it.

Was feeling nauseous going into it but got 7 more than last week. Not sure how, I think I was pissed off though.

BJJ

Missed warm up, did pretty good in guard passes, two triangles. Advanced class was all rolling. First we did like 5 rounds wrestling stand up, then we did mount and back escape drills. Then we rolled. I had a great roll with Danny our brown belt who lets you play your game, I managed a smooth kimura sweep and then spun into north south and almost finished it from reverse mount. Kept position and stayed on top of side mount or turtle, then spent most of the rest of the round on his back. Won't go through all the other rounds but I was dominant against a bunch of whiteys and a blue. Got an americana from mount and armbar from guard. Good class.

I keep tweaking my right shoulder. I always post up on that side to work the kimura, and then if I get slammed down it's tough on the rotator cuff. Icing it now and it should be fine but it keeps reoccuring, going to add something to saturday's lifting to strengthen that shit.

Going to get my ass kicking in sparring tomorrow afternoon then hopefully muay thai/mma that evening.

How long do you rest between rounds of burpees?

At my gym we do a lot of partner pad work wherein a sprawl is the last part of the combination. It seems to have a similar benefit, or maybe I just have a subpar spraw.

1 min rest to simulate a fight. Yep, sprawls will sure do the trick too.
