Starting fresh

ive trained martial arts for the last 3 years now and have decided that id really like to compete at some level in mma. at the beginning of the year i decided this would be my year to get it all organised and was going along nicely until i got lazy and wound up taking a whole month off. now with the help of this training log i really want to start recording my progress and making another run at getting something going.

i will be going back to classes next week aswell as starting back at the gym.

i will be following the starting strength program fresh after previously doing the madcow method and making some impressive gains but alas ive withered away over the break.

the mma training schedule looks something like this:

monday night= mma 6-7 followed by judo 7-830
tuesday= kickboxing 6-7 s&c 7-8 BJJ 8-9
wednesday= 7-8 mma
Thursday= 630-730 kickboxing BJJ 8-9
friday= 630-730 mma
Saturday= 9-10 muay thai/sparring BJJ 10-11

weight training will be done early mornings on monday wednesday friday alternating ABA BAB weekly.

Workout A

Squats: 3 x 5
Bench Press: 3 x 5
Deadlift: 1 x 5
Dips (weighted): 2 x 5-8
Workout B

Squats: 3 x 5
Press: 3 x 5
Pendlay rows 3x5
Chin-ups: 3 x 8

Next mondays the deadline to start. ive already bought the old faithful supplements such as protein, creatine etc and am crossing my fingers that i can start eating healthy again. im 20 years old current weight is 78.9kg.
Wish me luck! any comments r greatly appreciated

first day back at training was yesterday: so sore lol

strengths gone way down but that's to be expected

squats: warm-up 60kg 85x3
bench: warm-up 50kg 70x3
deadlift: warm-up 60kg 85x3
weighted dips: 2x8 with 7.5kg
weighted situps: 3x5 with 10kg
weighted hypher extension: 3x8 with 10kg

mma class:

started with 10 minute warmups. running burpees, sprawls etc followed by 5 mins stretching. then we did reaction drills were we had to slap the back leg of our partner in a low crouched stance. if you succeeded the partner had to do 10 pushups each time they got tagged. lol i partnered with one of the gyms fighters and got tagged 5 times to the 1 i managed to land on him. next was shooting in for an ankle pick which the partner avoids that you then turn into a fireman's targeting the back leg. then sprints followed by sprawls. finally we did a bit of freestyle wrestling. actually did ok against the fighter which was surprising managed to reverse out of a few spots more so with strength than technique though. decided to skip judo sofffft

kickboxing class:
warmed up today with running around the outside of the mats with pushups, sprawls and then some sprints. ran through two combos 1-1-2-3-2 duck under 2-3-2 then same combo southpaw.
next combo 1-1-6-3-2 duck under 3-2-3. good class just need to work on cardio

did the warmups with running rolling back and front, breakfalls etc. learnt a technique when opponents in turtle position. left hand on outside grabs collar of the gi while the right hand reaches through and around the neck to cup the back of the head. you then drop on your right shoulder and roll the opponent over you and end in an arm triangle. rolled with 2 opponents, surprisingly didnt get tapped and even tapped another guy with a kimura from side control

kick boxing class:

The usual warmups and stretching. followed by shadow sparing which some people like to take more serious then others lol 5x3 mins rounds. then we worked some combos to round out the class.


no warm up for tonights class instead instructor decided we'd do light rolling wih 3 min rounds. we werent mean to look for the submission mainly just to acvance and maintain dominated. next he showed two techniques. one was an armbar from the turtle position. slide the knee in to create space, scoop the nearest hand with a foot, reach around the back to grab the other wrist, replace foot that was on ribs into gap now created by the wrist control while forward rolling into the armbar. pretty cool. next was a variation of omoplata that you hit from a failed shoot. too hard to explain. finally we rolled 2x3 proper wrestles looking for the submission. got tapped out by a head an arm and only time saved me from getting submitted by a triangle. ahwell still learning
