So I've been sick the past few days, really annoying because my days off are obviously the ideal time to get the most sessions in. Not sure what it was, I had 1 day of relentless sneezing and mucus production, followed by a day of relentless hacking and coughing. Cold medicine seemed to have no effect. Today things are less severe and my coughs are actually productive so it has blown over now. Went in today just to getting the juices flowing a bit.

Shadowboxing
Skipping
Boxing on bag
Sets of 10 kicks on bag
Stretch

My water intake and shit got screwed up for the practice weight cut, so I'll worry about it when I'm 100% again.

Back to class tomorrow.

Yo!

Loved the GSP workout - ridiculous amounts of soreness when I started. The workouts are based on you going to failure so every workout is as difficult as you can mentally push yourself.

It's not the full rushfit, just something off bodybuilding.com
Linky

It's all typical gym equipment compatible. For bonus points I like to do a strongman type thing at the end of them though.

Let me know how Toronto is, eh? I'll be heading out that way to see my dad sometime this year.

Jits - Beginner + Advanced Classes

Not going too indepth, but GREAT classes today with lots of rolling. Getting lots of time with guys around my level, finding my flow again and persevering through all the rounds. Won most of my rounds today, just a couple finishes on lower level guys - arm triangle, triangle, armbar from mounted triangle, armbar from guard. Higher level guys I won a few rolls and a few were pretty back and forth. Had two back to back rounds with a purple that were gruelling, no idea what points were like but it was all over, got a sexy armbar sweep when I was about to get passed, and got out of bad positions promptly.

My legs started to spasm and cramp between classes but I stretched them up and things got working again. Leg day is the worst workout when you have BJJ a couple hours later.

Watching the UFC this weekend, something caught my attention when Rogan was talking during Urijah Faber's walkout. It was basically just how planned out his life is, how he has goals down to the very day. I'm going to try to start implement this in here to try to push myself into the next level. I'll list the weekly goals on monday and then recap on sunday. Goals will be anything I can think of, but largely training related goals. This weeks goals coming up in next post.

You might want to change the last one to the word buy. That could get people in some trouble.

As for the list I think its a great idea, I hope you accomplish these. I am about to start up my own training log either now or tomorrow.

Nice! Do you train in martial arts or do you lift?





So it seems my goals list is going to get an early challenge. Yesterday in BJJ when I was rolling the purple we had a weird transition that ended with me in Side Control but my foot trapped under him and my knee twisted and pointing away. Weird as hell and a risky position and I managed to get my foot free. I felt a bit of pain in it at the time but nothing noticeable. When I woke up this morning my knee was stiff as hell and there's alot of pain in the side of the knee. If it was serious I'd know, but googling around leads me to believe it's just been twisted a little too far and basically sprained. Should take a week to recover and I'm supposed to RICE. I'll try to work around it in the meantime though.

Today I went in skipped for a bit and then hit pads with training partner, 4 rounds each. Felt pretty good, knee is sketchy but if I stretch and warm it up I don't notice it in pure boxing.

We'll see how many of these goals I can meet with my new gimpy leg.
