Today’s training was at the Rodrigo Freitas BJJ gym in Hawthorne, CA. We worked on the same back escape and the bow and arrow set up from Tuesday. During each time that moves were being shown, I was able to get some stretching in to loosen up the hips and legs. I got a lot of reps in on both of these moves. Then, I got to roll for 4 rounds on the live drills from both attacking and defending from the back. After that, I got to roll for 1 round during sparring.
Today’s lunch training went well. My defense was great on the back take, unlike when I first started in Jiu Jitsu. I used to get choked out a lot when I was a white belt. My offense on the back needs improvement though, I was able to get submissions on the later round on the live drills. The training today was fun and I had a great time on the rolls, especially since I got to work on both offense and defense.
Powerlifting Training - Squats and Deadlifts
I did great on the squats, but on the deadlifts, I was spent after Jiu Jitsu training and the heavy squats. My grips were done after 385lbs, so I had to use the straps. My arms were tired as well, so the pull ups didn't go well too and I was using a lot of body English on the barbell rows.
After the workout, the stretching felt great. I notice the difference on my mobility when I roll. I feel tire right now, but I don't feel that I am all wrecked. I'll see on how it goes tomorrow and Saturday. I'm taking extra protein and glutamine for recovery. I took in extra calories as well today to make sure that I have the energy for tonight. I'll need to put more conditioning in when I work on the speed work this weekend.
