I'm not the biggest fan of "blogging" but what the hell.
June 20, Combat day:
2 hours of freestyle grappling and takedowns practice. Also practice for groundnpound and for guard passes.
1 hour of boxing and clinch-striking, mostly knees.
Simulated fight: 3 rounds of 5 minutes each with the first 2 minutes of each round purely striking and the last 3 of takedowns and submissions.
1/2 hour submission training
Bench press: 3 sets (each set 12 reps)
Kickpress: 3 sets
Shoulderpress: 1 set
So here's what today's workout looked like:
June 22, Weight conditioning
Benchpress: 10 sets of 12 reps, 15 second break between sets
Straight kickpress: 15 sets of 12 reps, 15 second breaks between sets
Should/overhead press: 10 sets, 10 second break between sets
Curls with freeweights: 10 sets of 12, 10 second break between sets
Calf/hamstring kickpress: 15 sets, 15 second break between sets
3 sets of 12 military pullups
Cooldown: 2 mile jog and 30 minutes of boxing
we are reading.. keep it up pretty intense looking workout man.
Today's a fight day, so I'll give a walk through of my routine.
Jog: 1 mile
Weigh-in: I don't cut weight because I'm a natural 155.
Do bench, overhead and leg press with the weight of my opponent.
Do warm-up striking and takedowns and watch some fight tape. (I watch Chuck Liddell if I'm looking for a KO and the old Gracie's if I'm looking for a submission, tonight I'm looking for a sub.)
I'll post how the fight goes.
good luck see if you can get some video.. That would be awesome..
Win by Submission at 4:46. North/south choke, which I really wanted to try anyway.
June 30 : Combat Training
2 mile jog (treadmill)
1 hour kickboxing (striking pad)
2 hours grappling, mostly guard passes
Simulated fight: 3 rounds, 5:30 minutes each (first day practicing with extended rounds)
1 more hour kickboxing and clinch striking
I made the decision to start overtraining by using weights when I jog and using 16 ounce gloves for striking instead of 12 ounce gloves, which means I'm basically adding an entire MMA glove to my hand. I also started using ankle weights for kickboxing and clinch striking. It's definitely alot more work, but once you take the weights off and hit the punching bag for a little while then you feel so much faster and stronger.
I just wish I had the time to train like that. My conditioning is great, but my stand-up needs some work. So far I havent had to use too much stand-up. These texas boys cant stop the takedown...lol:laugh:
