July 14 Open Mat

Three kick boxers & one grappler (me) at the gym. (Tai, Matt & Finnis) So Eric had us rotate, with two kids sparring kickboxing and the other rolling with me. I rolled light, and didn't make them carry my weight. I did tap out one kid, but it was a dick move...I should have just played catch & release.

It was fun to deal with some lightweight newbies...they put forth so much effort. Fun rolls. But I pulled a pec muscle or semi-dislocated a high front rib. For the first time in many months, I'm considering a pain pill.

July 21 Roll with Eric for 20-30 min.
Lessons:
Avoid Guillotine with proper head posture.
When being reversed, get top foot inside his top leg & elevate him back over.
To be truly heavy, sag...be 185 lbs of wet cement. When he moves you, only allow the part of your body that he's moving to move.

To try: Elevator with Guillotine when being Single Legged. Also, heavy Sprawl, then inchworm back.

Sept. 8
32 min. brisk dog walk on the Milton Trail wearing weighted vest. Avg. HR = 116, max was 129.
Quickly got into my HR zone on my Polar FT 4 and the pace was easy to maintain. The HR monitor caused no problems under the weight vest.
Also, I did a few rounds of Systema breathing, as explained by Steve Maxwell, working up to the 8 count. It might help with breath control on the mat.

Sept 13 Weighted walk with wife & dogs. 40 minutes, with 25 min. in the zone, the rest just below 102 BPM, so just out of zone.

Sept. 14

Jits class. No Gi - Russian Ties to Single Leg. Drilled with Lee, a new guy. Then rolled with Mario. First time, he has a different style than most guys.

NB - might be my imagination, but I already feel like my wind is improved from the cardio walks.

Sept. 15

AM Non-weighted Dog Walk - 31 min. walk, 27 min. in Zone, Avg. HR 119, Max. HR 147.

This was a jog-walk; the jog to get and periodically maintain HR in zone. Also, a couple sets of Systema breathing via Steve Maxwell.
I skipped the weight vest to see if it makes a difference in how my feet feel. Yesterday, pretty sore, esp. in big toe joints & arches. Epsom salt soak helped, IMO.

This felt about like a 2/75 road march pace, minus the 60 lb ruck & 37.5 lb rifle. Ah, the Good Old Days.

PM - grappling.

Eric answers all my Back Take questions...the benefits of a small class tonight.

Armbar finishes.

Roll with James and Justin (new guy). Held out too long when James armbarred me and now I regret it.
Now chilling in nice new cigar bar that's 5 min from my house.

Sept. 25 TBDL 3 sets X 5 reps, bar on lower position. Some Incl. BP, some chins.

Sept. 27 Non-weighted walk for 46 min. 36 min in zone; avg HR 118, max HR 147.

I had to walk-jog to keep things in the zone. The first three jogs were, "Shit, this sucks, I hate running." Then, in the next jog, things came into place and my running groove came back. And it was quite enjoyable. After a 10-15 year layoff, I might return to running. A little.

I'm thinking of measuring time for HR to drop from 100 to 80, at the end of the workout. That, and/or measuring resting HR rate at waking.

Sept. 30 TBDL, warmup & one set before interruption. Didn't get back to it.

Oct. 1 Walk w/ dogs for 30 min. No vest, no HR monitor working (contacts issue). Going by RPE, I'd guess I was low-to-mid zone for most of the time.

PM BJJ - Gi: Old School Reverse from Bottom Half Guard. Seal your upper arm to your lat to prevent Underhook.

Or Uhook partner, isolating his arm. Pressure him onto his hands. Keep pressure on his Uhooked shoulder, keep his weight on his hands, and pop out the back door for Back Take.

Wrestled with Jacques for ~6-7 rounds.

Then BSd & drank beer with Jacques, Nick, and Chelsea.

Oct. 3 "Heavy" TBDL at lower setting, with shrug at top of DL. 3 sets of 5 reps. Feels pretty good - I can feel it hitting both quads & hamstrings, so that's the result I wanted.

Oct. 5 Walk - 45 min. at a moderate pace.

PM Grappling. No Gi. Duckunders. I partnered with Alex, a good guy. Being tall, I don't know if Duckunders will be in my game plan, but it's probably just a matter of sucking.
My shoulder was barking, so I didn't spar tonight. I watched Jacques crush some new guy...nice to watch his guard passes and the way he solidifies his top position. I like to think I do the same.

I should do an Epsom Salts bath & call it a night.

^Did.

Oct. 7

Gi class. Side Control -> Knee on Belly drill. Then a quick roll with Mario. He's a good partner...not a lot to prove.

You notice anything in terms of increased hip strength or ...decreased mobility? I have a high miles MMA guy at the gym, who I'm trying to convince to give up the DL for a while

No noteworthy results, positive or negative, so far. I dropped my daily grease the groove plan...not realistic, given that I have higher priority on walking and grappling, and daily DL's won't fit the plan.

So I'm trying out the "Vladimir," the program Pavel T devised for his father.
http://fourhourworkweek.com/2011/03/17/ ... t-program/

Basically, a heavy day and a light day. 5 X 5. But I'm not up to the 5 sets of 5 reps yet. If my body doesn't like the 5 reps, I'll do 5 sets of 3 or 4.

Oct. 11 Long walk at a brisk pace. No dogs, no vest, no HR monitor. Then sauna while watching Ryan Hall's Open Elbow DVD. I recommend it.

Oct. 12 Back issues, taking it easy.

Oct. 19 After several days of being stove up from sore back issues, I did a nice long dog walk.





PM - BJJ. Eric showed us Tai Otoshi, something I had zero interest or aptitude for. So, I hung around with my dick in my hand. Later, got Eric to show me some Head & Arm Throw.

Ten minute roll with Justin, a blue belt from some other school. For this being my third Gi spar, I did OK. Didn't get submitted, but didn't submit him. I got a Kimura hold on his L arm at one point, but couldn't capitalize on it. He Triangled me, but I postured up and it came to nothing.

Oct. 24

AM - short walk.

PM - Grappling. Absorbed repeated Monkey-stomping by some pretty great grapplers. Peruvian Necktie, Darce, Neck Crank, Kimura, Armbar...you name it. Good fun.

Studied extreme shoulder pressure from Side Control, then to windpipe choke.

Also got coached on defending Fireman's Carry. (Ironic.) Proper posture, hip in to close the space where he would dive into, pass/control the arm, sprawl, in that order.

PS - I rolled without any set goals today...a NO NO.

Oct. 26 - Hit the gym, but no one to roll with. So I went out to lunch with Eric. He gave me some good feedback on my last roll,

Oct. 27 - Stationfit: Treadmill X 35 min. HR max at 127.

DB lat pullovers. 1 arm DB DLs, DB lateral raise for shoulder healing.
