Hectic day to say the least. 12/18/2010

Early in the morning found out my dad had numbness in his arm and was taken to the hospital. He was talking fine and walked on his own power.

I lost my phone on the way to the belt test, and this made the day even more hectic.

The belt test went fine from a technique standpoint, but my partner went a little rough due to his nerves. Anyways, I have my purple belt now and it feels good.

Still determining what it is but it seems like it may just be muscular after all. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I even had a hard time getting my partner in de la Riva guard!

I went to bjj class today, and we practiced some laso guard submissions. Went over the choke and arm bar. The key to these moves is to get the angle by moving onto the hips. I tend to stay flat on my back when I do them in matches.

We then did specific training from butterfly guard and I grappled for about 10 minutes like this. I did a better job of moving around and not waiting for my opponent to make a mistake.

I then had 3 matches, 2 against Bobby and 1 against Wes. Each match was about 5 minutes each. I really tried to move more and force my opponent to get off balance. I was able to get full guard on several occassions and some sweeps.

I went to bjj class on 12/22. We went over doing omoplatas from a lot of positions such as opponent standing, failed flower sweep, failed handstand sweep, butterfly guard.

I then rolled with zach for about twenty minutes. I kept getting out of trouble, armbars, triangles, mount, etc. I finally got submitted by him, but I am improving. I need to work on standing in his guard because he does a really good job of breaking down my posture. Live and learn.

Life has been hectic for the past couple of weeks. It felt good to get into the garage and do some lifting. Deadlift form still feels like it sucks. I hope to upload a video soon.


Week 13
Day 1 - 12/23/10
Low Bar Squat - 1RM: 372 lbs
225 lbs x 5 reps x 1 sets @ 6 RPE - 61% of 1RM
275 lbs x 3 reps x 1 sets @ 6.5 RPE - 74% of 1RM

Bench - 1RM: 250 lbs
140 lbs x 6 reps x 1 sets @ 5.5 RPE - 56% of 1RM
185 lbs x 3 reps x 1 sets @ 6.5 RPE - 74% of 1RM

Deadlift - 1RM: 390 lbs
225 lbs x 5 reps x 1 sets @ 6 RPE - 58% of 1RM

I decided to have a test day. I wanted to work up to a heavy single but not necessary a true max. I was very pleased with the squats and I felt I was making good progress. I think I could have had another ten pounds in me. I didn't feel pancaked in the bottom and had some pop.

The bench was a different story and I feel I need to do exclusively all my work with a pause. I had absolutely no strength with 265 and 275.

The deadlift has a problem now for a bit, and same thing today. I have the strength to get 405 off the floor but not with good form. My back rounded on 405. I think I need to do deadlifts twice a week to fix my form.

I hit a PR on the cleans. 215 is the most weight I've ever done in the exercise. I then felt confident in going for 225, and came close to getting it. On dumping the weight my elbow hit my thigh and it felt my wrist was going to break. Luckily it didn't and I got it on video but am not going to load it and I was laying on the ground startled for a second. Anyways here are two videos for a form check.

I for a PR on the press and I probably shouldn't have since I 165 was a difficult 8. I was planning on going for 185, but I decided to try 180. I am not capable of getting the weight off my shoulders too well. I am not stopping in between reps and maybe just like the bench I need to pause in between each rep.

I surprising can still do 6 pullups for my first set.

I am exciting about getting after it in the new year and look forward to setting PRs and learning more everyone on this site. I wish everyone a happy new year!
