@punnyguy Thanks old-timer. Unfortunately, whatever wisdom I have isn’t enough to make a living that doesn’t involve going to work all the damn time.
@hel320 Thanks Harry!
@duketheslaya One more thought… Remember that drilling and rolling are forms of training. I think it is natural for competitive people to turn those things into little contests. Sometimes this is good, if done mindfully, like when a partner makes you work a little harder during the drill, or even just a good hard roll. Maybe he’s giving you a little puzzle to solve, like stripping his grip before you extend the armbar. This is good. What is not good, or at least not productive, is using these moments to try and seem tough or to make a point somehow. Especially with armbars. Remember that it is YOUR responsibility to tap at the right time, not your partner’s responsibility to not break or damage your limbs.
I was supposed to meet an old friend to lift, but he skipped out on me. No shocker there. I wasn’t going to lift today at all, but since I was there I got under the bar a little.
Some cable stuff for arms
Some shoulder rehab stuff
20 min sauna
10 min hot tub
One thing that’s surprised me about am lifting days with pm jiu jitsu is how well I seem to be recovering. I’m not hitting a lot of volume on my lifts right now, but even still, jiu jitsu seems to be fulfilling this “active recovery” role I’ve heard so much about. Squatting two days in a row? Who’d have thunk? Good stuff!
