I am in. April 17th is a Friday. I might be competing on Saturday, don't know yet. Depends on rules and age groups.

Looks like fun.

March 4 Wednesday

BJJ Fundamentals

Great class with Todd. I picked up several technical details that were excellent additions. We worked Standing RNC defense, mount escape, armbar. then the last 10 minutes of class we worked those in a series like this.

guy 1) defends standing RNC and throws attacker
guy 2) trys to escape by rolling into your shin
guy 1) defends by posting on shoulder and going to KOB
guy 1) moves from KOB to mount
guy 2) escapes mount with bridge
guy 2) now with guy 1 in guard immediately attacks armbar

Wash rinse and repeat for 10 minutes. I found this to be a great teaching mechanism.

Just really great to be training at the academy.

March 6 Friday

BJJ Fundamentals

Worked on armbar and stack escape. Some really good technical points. Opposite shoulder pressing down as hard as possible, small incremental removal of trapped arm, same side leg right in the crack of your opponents ass, look up and follow your head around to side control. Finished class with 15 minutes of transitional work.

guy 1) attacks guy 2 in his guard with armbar
guy 2) escapes with stack and escape to side control
guy 2) once solid in side control go to low KOB
guy 2) moves from KOB to mount
guy 2) goes for collar choke
guy 1) defends collar choke and escapes mount with bridge
guy 2) now with guy 1 in guard immediately attacks armbar

I am loving how Todd is putting together these transitional drills. They are solid for the both the new guys and people with more experience.

Seriously who doesn't need more armbar and escape practice!

March 7 Saturday

Last WOD at Crossfit Evolutions current facility and moving party.

WOD

400 M Run
21 225 LB DL's
9 Burpees
400 M Run
15 225 DL's
15 Burpees
400 M Run
9 225 LB DL's
21 Burpees

14:43 as RX'ed. Quite possibly the most evil way you could have put those elements together. The last 21 Burpees seemed to go on forever! Best quote of the day came from my friend Andy who said "if I could have been able to breathe I would have puked, its hard to puke when you can't breathe". After we recovered for a few minutes we loaded all the weights into Leo's new truck and a couple of other vehicles and headed down the road to the new facility.

Video to come later today.

I was absolutely smoked this morning from yesterdays workout. I was not explosive at all. Still felt pretty good to be moving. Met-Con was great. I am really enjoying the sledge and hammer work, I think it is doing lots of good stuff for my shoulders.

Still pretty good volume in this workout. Even moreso that you did it before work.

If I don't workout before work it just doesn't get done. The volume does feel pretty good right now thanks for the comments.

Wednesday March 11

Treadmill 5 minutes
D W/U

Rack Pull Mid Shin 45 X 5, 135 X 5, 225 X 5, 315 X 5, 405 X 1, 365 X 1, 315 X 5

Press 45 X 5, 95 X 10, 10, 8, 8
P/U 8, 7, 6, 5

Decline S/U 15, 15, 15, 12
Standing Wrist Curl 50 X 20 X 4

Plank 45 seconds X 4 (counted in my head)
Seated Wrist Extension 20 X 20 X 4

405 was tough from mid shin. Felt good and I am getting it closer to the floor. I am going to need to do some research and figure out an actual plan for my DL'ing goals. I am kind of just moving forward linearly from the ground and lowering the rack pulls to get to 405. Probably a better way to attack it.
