i like your plans alot but it realy makes you a specilized fighter your week point is that your dont have a plan for going against some one whoknows how to spawl and though in the right knee that can knock you unconsous. when your fighting people who have the power to knock you out woth jabs or even just mui ti clinch you and knok the wind out of you. you seem like aa great fighter but you wouldnt be prepaired to fight some one whos 2 inches shorter than you and knows a little wrestiong a little judo and a few submitiosn but has huge resition standing and decent power.

Getting the choke is all about speed immediately from the takedown. You have to split the guard first, then get into a north/south position and just go for it. It didn't hurt that my opponent doesn't have the ground game to defend against any sort of advanced submission. But he's working on it.

Yeah, little bro, sorry its taking me so long to reply to all of your posts.

I am getting to that point where I might be getting to specialized, but I try to avoid it. Stay rounded. You know what I mean. You also know very well that I hate striking with people.

You know that I train with RK, who is shorter and way stronger than me. He also has way better wrestling then me, so he helps me work from the bottom alot. It's about getting used to position, so alot of my stuff isn't just about getting on top of the guy and dominating him. I'm cool with having someone in my guard, triangles, guillotines and armbars are some of the best submissions.

If you mean fighting a short striker, all I'd do was keep him away with the jab and work leg kicks until he straightens up and starts to loose his ability to defend the takedown and work that wrestling and judo efficiently. Once I see him pop up and start to forget about his position then I'll go in for the takedown, either with the shot or by setting him up with underhooks.

Kick the heavy bag often, toughen up those shins, learn to get alot of power in your leg kicks by channeling the "whip" through the target, toughen those shins, kick thai pads with partner and toughen up those shins.

If he can't stand up he can't fight.

How do you have time to train 6+ hours a day? You don't work or go to school?

That part of the log was done over the summer, when I was out of school and I just trained all day. Now I have school and I train after for 2-3 hours, more like a sports practice.

I wanted to add some stuff I started doing recently. For those who don't know, I do strictly body weight training, along with the occasional 10 pound curls while I watch TV.

I was doing pull ups this afternoon and I started to think about when I was little and did gymnastics (keep in mind, this is a long time ago). I started pulling my knees up to my chest and putting my ankles against the bar with each rep. This helps to stregthen the lower core, beyond just the target area of a regular pull-up which is the upper body.

A full rep, then, starts like a regular pull up, but when I get to the top I tuck my legs, lean my body back and touch the bar with either my shins or my ankles. I don't get as many reps in, but it definitely pushes me a little bit farther.

Amazing workout.

I'm curious- you mentioned the modified pullup that you're doing, but what else are you doing for your core strength?

For core strength I do alot of situps when I'm not working with equipment like bars and that kind of stuff. I do the pull ups. Taking a medicine ball and leaning back is another good one, but it doesn't build explosiveness, so I do it after cardio workouts, usually. It's also a nice stretch.

Heavybag lifts are my preferred core strength excercise, because it builds strength in the legs and in the core, essentially targetting all of the areas that are used in Roman Greco style takedowns.

From what I know, heavy bag lifts would work really well.

Anyway, don't stop posting. It's intersting.
