No ‘conditioning’ piece tonight as I brought this session forward to fit in BJJ tomorrow when I wake up…and also my body was cooked after high rep block pulls and squats haha

I’ll fit the conditioning portion in during the week because it looks fun

90 minute no GI class

Focus on Kimura trap for sweep, invisible Kimura and Kimura from side control

Had some good rolling rounds.

Managed to hold some good positions, find some escapes etc.

Highlight was using threatening an arm triangle from mount to set up an armbar. It was such a nice ‘click’ moment in my head when he was defending the arm triangle and I realised it was exposing the arm.

I’ll keep working on that any time I’m able to get mount until I can do it consistently.

That’s what it’s about I guess

Don’t be mislead though, I was tapped so much your think I was practicing Morse code.

Black on oxygen

5rds
30kb swing W 32kg
800m run
3 min rest

This will keep you humble

First time I’ve used the heavier KB and it definitely changed it up a bit. HR was lower into the run but my glutes and hams had done more work. Love it

Strength endurance

Went bodyweight at home and it was awesome

3x30
Burpee
Squat
TRX row
Pushup
Chin up (on wooden beam)
Mountain climbers

The beam chin ups are rad because I can get essential ZERO kip otherwise the wood anihilates my firearms

No spoon mentality

No GI class tonight as well

Lots of work off the Kimura trap and escaping it too

Drilling from good and bad positions

I had some great rounds and was able to use some sweeps and passes. Took submissions where I could but really wasn’t “hunting” for them

Defended well tonight too, submitted many, many times but I was escaping initial attempts and getting caught on second or third goes.

Such a fun martial art and so so so much to learn

Without going through 4000 ish posts in this log, can you briefly outline your food/meal layout mate?

Ripped city in here btw.

Haha sure mate.

Eat.

I don’t count calories at the moment.

I cook most of my own meals and they’re either high protein high fat, low carb or high protein high carb, low fat.

I don’t really have any method behind my approach other than checking the scale and if my weight is going down I try to eat more

It’s also important to know that GAINING and MAINTAINING weight has always been my challenge and is currently my goal
