Shoot her one more time again for me

JIU JITSU

Didn't feel retarded today. Against Titan Christ my bull-fighter passes felt second-nature, as did the consolidation of side-control and into mount. Everything clicked well today.

Drilled live with Sam, some experimental stuff we're working on, for surviving when you're mounted. That was profitable, too.

Squats felt better today. Reps were strong and solid and I didn't get gassed-out so fast. I feel that a big part of that has to do with my abandoning my "Controlled, Rational Paleo" eating plan, and cramming a cup of Uncle Ben's and two bananas down my gullet with my pork chops an hour before I left work to train.

I'd like to work up to 20 rep front squats. Yes, for the quad sweep.

Axle cleans with the 2" axle are fun. I figure they're a good way to work my upper-back whilst allowing my legs to be explosive. This was a fun session and got me ready for Jiu Jitsu...

JIU JITSU

We've drilled Bullfighter and X Passes so much that they feel second nature to me now. Which is awesome because I Big Tim (one of the other Mutants) came tonight and Kevin had me roll with him for my first match. I didn't let him bulldoze me like he's done before, I got to my feet and worked my passes and hit knee-on-belly and side-control like I'm supposed to. He fights hard as hell to escape, too and that's awesome because it helps me learn what he does to get out of bad situations. Big as he is, strong as he is, he's super technical and methodical. And he keeps his cool. So as he was working his escapes, I was feeling him, adjusting my pressure, being quick to post when I had him mounted, etc. and it was profitable for both of us.

Brandon has now become practically impossible to arm-bar from mount. He knows its coming and he wraps up his arms like two crazy ball pythons. ALSO- he doubles that effort as a defense against the cross-collar choke, too. He's super-tenacious, too. Respect to him and Big Tim for sure.

Sam and I stuck around to roll and experiment after class and that was profitable as usual. Neale nicknamed him "Dolph" because the motherfucker is a dead ringer for Dolph Lungren. He's a lot of fun to work with, and he helps me a lot. Professor observed us, and coached me on a choke from side-control. We'll drill that one more tomorrow.

Great sessions tonight.

Be careful with curls and BJJ. I've seen more than one bicep issue from combining the two. Band curls would probably be a safer option.

Great open mat tonight. But I don't feel like typing about it because I'm sore as hell and I want to eat some food and go to bed. One or two highlights though-

Chris and Josh helped me shore-up my base and that was awesome because it made me immune to that one sweep they always use on me.

Sweeps are coming second-nature now to me as well.

Great open mat tonight, no-gi in the morning first thing.

New Years' Day Open Mat! We kicked 2013 off right for sure!

Today it was all experimentation with guard playing, for me. I'm happy with my passing game for now, and I want to work transitions from closed and open guard, into Spider and Butterfly and also work on controlling the opponent's hips better. I rolled with Grace and she facilitated that very well. I like rolling with her because she's tiny so for me it's 100% technique and no muscle at all, and she gets to work her stuff. She can wriggle right out from under you if you're not careful. It was beneficial for us both. Chris shut down my guard several times but my escapes were on-point and I worked them well. Jake, pictured below in the black gi, submitted me 6 times with body triangles. Fuck me those hurt when you're burping acid from 14 beers last night and pizza all day today LOL

Great session! Here we are-

Ryan intervened for the sake of my legs at class tonight and had me do two sets of narrow-stance squats instead of the front squats and leg press stuff. And that's fine because after last week's leg day and Jiu Jitsu my legs were legit sore for damn-near four days after and that's no bueno. He says that this will be a better template for my size and increased work capacity goals.


JIU JITSU

Worked on escaping from bad positions tonight. A lot. And that was awesome. I have two solid mount escapes now, and also some good stuff for getting out of side-control, too. Got smashed a lot LOL But it was profitable.

your mind makes me nervous
your thoughts make me feel bad


JIU JITSU (Fundies)

Tonight was great! Learned another guard pass, it's like an X Pass except you crash down on the guy with your forward shoulder, legs and feet splayed-out behind you to give you leverage enough to smash him. Good one. We also drilled the hell out of Toriendo Passes, too, which is always good. Drill it until it's automatic.

We worked Americanas from Mount, too. Simple submission but one that I learned from rolling, not drilling. We broke that technique down today, and I figured out where I've been fucking it up-

You don't "pull" their t-rex arm off their chest and pin it to the floor. You monkey grip it with both hands and use your bodyweight pressing down on it to move it off their chest to the floor. Then, you drop your forearm closest to their head down to the floor, and pin your elbow agains their cheek. Hold their arm there at that 90 degree angle, wedge your other hand underneath, put it on your wrist, then get that elbow down toward your knee for better leverage, and lift it up. Easy. That was profitable.

Rolling was great. Stalemated Dolf. Held it down with Iron Mike while he worked me over and he gave me a lot of tips for dealing properly with his De-La Riva guard (I was accidentally giving him my back at first because of how he was working my legs).

Awesome night tonight.

Focusing on bad positions and handling them well has paid off in spades. Big Eric put it on me tonight during rolls, and I was able to escape his mount attempts, knee on belly and side control easily. He usually smashes me. Giant leap forward.

Drilled chokes from knee on belly, and of course, guard escapes. Drill it till its automatic.

It's been great!! Sessions like this are easily recovered-from, and I'm getting bigger, too! What's more, I have better stamina during rolling, and best of all- my lower back isn't sore at all. I've had no problems with it what so ever! I can't coma on at all.

I weigh 220 now, i have put on a little weight. But my waist is still 32 inches.

Size, lack of pain, easily recoverable, and increased stamina. Not bad at all, lol. The beauty is that you are still getting stronger. Give it sometime and I foresee 225 or maybe even 245 for 10.

That would be a dream-come-true for me, Dunn. 265 even. That would be awesome!

Everything was on point today to hit 335 for 10. I felt tired and lazy when I got there but my friends helped me motivate myself. Helped a lot. Sometimes it's hard to get fired-up to do lifting like this after work. And I've never pulled 335 for 10 before. I'm pretty stoked I was able to get this done. I feel really good about it.

I'm going out of town on Wednesday. So this will be my last lifting day until Monday. I can't wait for Jiu Jitsu tomorrow, I'm going to have a great session there, enjoy 4 days off Someplace Else (Anyplace other than Pittsburgh is just fine right about now), and hopefully supercompensate a little bit.

Lower back held up great on that last set too.

Once again back is the incredible

JIU JITSU

My game just leaped a thousand miles forward.

On Saturday I'd noticed a curious new habit I'd gotten into of swimming my arm under an opponent's for an underhook, whenever I was getting put into side control. This was allowing me to escape and in one particular case, take the guy's back.

After we drilled (mounted arm bar, scissor sweep, mount escape), Jake showed us that exact thing, which he explained as kind of a last-ditch effort to get out of bad situations: "go for that underhook."

...

It made perfect sense to me because I was already doing it naturally. And after we messed around with it and it came time to roll, I used the hell out of that shit.

Jake paired me with Big Eric like always, and after our obligatory Grip War, he proceeded to try and smash me like he always does, and I was able to slip right away from him by getting that hook and then creating space, and getting him back in my guard, on several of his attempts. So Big Eric got hip to what I was doing and changed his game up, and did some pretty fucking spectacular top work, and succeed in mounting me twice, after some creative maneuvering. It was nice to see him using technique and not just hit own weight. I escaped both his mounts, and played Spider Guard with him, using some new details I've been learning. That went well.

Then got paired with a new guy. Played guard the whole time, Spider most especially, swept him several times, mounted him and worked my chokes and Americanas, as well. He was a total spaz. We're funny when we're white belts and its our first month. We freak out and go nuts.

He was super-easy to control dispite his adrenaline-charged assaults. He will improve.

Rolled Pig Pen after class, Spider Guard all day with him, too. And we both discovered that not only am I buying myself time, when the opponent is on his feet and I'm making a puppet of him, I can also set up an easy transition to a De La Riva Sweep, from there. That was awesome. It's super-easy and it works.

Play guard for life. Awesome session. Time for vacation. Cant wait to get back at it.

Hey there Chief! I'm headed down to Virginia!! It's been too long since the last time I was down there and I figure I'm about due LOL

There will be a lot of serious :drinkers: happening. And I can't fucking wait. Leaving tomorrow right after work. Coming home, grabbing my clothes and Begonia, and we'll be on our way.

Later this Spring I am coming further South :happiness:

Not bad for coming back home pickled, getting 4 hours of sleep last night and having a shitty day at work today!

To change with change is the changeless state

Professor Junqueira is back!

We drilled some interesting passes from half-guard to mount, and he gave us a lot of in-depth technical stuff to chew on, for that. And then drilled mounted arm-bars, repeatedly.

Next came the matches. Professor called me out to roll with him and that was awesome. I actually deployed my Spider Guard on him successfully and tried to give him a run for his money as best I could. He submitted me like, 8 times but he said I've gotten a lot better. I rolled with Dolf and stalemated him, rolled next with Big Ryan and had him in Spider Guard all day, worked an over-head sweep on him (which was cool because he's a heavy weight like me), regular Spider Sweep, as well simple guard retention. He didn't pass me the entire 5 minutes. Rolled with Pig Pen last. He got hip to my game since last time, so I had to try and step it up and that was cool because he did too, submitted me with a nice Omoplata.

Great session! I'm glad Professor's back!

In this lifetime,
I feel that I've slipped
And lost my grip many times before
In this lifetime I've seen many fall
But do you ever really know if what you saw was so?

I hate coming back after missing a squat day. Fuck that was hard. The weight was light but the reps gassed me and it makes me feel like a pussy when it happens. No problem. I'll be back to feeling better in no time.

I only got submitted once during rolling, and I did five matches. Spider Guard is improving and new doors are opening. Took a guy's back in a scramble today. He had me in an arm bar, after I'd fought my way out of a triangle. I escaped that and boom, in was on his back. He put me in some pretty painful shit too, but it was a lot easier to cope with when I could get that underhook.

Things are improving fast. Can't wait for open mat tomorrow
