Yesterday, I was training at the Rodrigo Freitas BJJ gym in Hawthorne for lunch. We got to work on a couple of submissions from the back and a back attack escape. For the submissions on the back, we did a collar choke and and transition from there to a modified collar choke with one leg blocking one of the opponent's arms. It's pretty similar to the bow and arrow, escape that the collar choke grips are still in place. On the back attack escape, we would force the movement to the opposite side of the choking arm, shimmy out to the floor, get the legs out, and get side control.
I got a lot of reps in on all of the moves for the day. Then, I got to live drill for 4 rounds on both attacking and defending from the back. I got work with various belts and weight classes so I got to work on different set ups on the attacks and defense.
Powerlifting Training 8/15/18
Tonight's training was on the deadlifts. I didn't do so well on the top sets, since I had a hard time breathing and setting up was off, since I gained weight these past couple of days. I'm not sure on what happen, because I did well on Sunday and it's not like that I'm out of shape. I did some conditioning at the end of the workout to make sure that cardio is not an issue during the next training session.
I'm sure not on how consistent I will be with my powerlifting training, since both my kids are in school and they both have homework, so I'll might need to workout in the morning with short sessions, but I'm still studying and I have other tasks as well. I might need to reduce the powerlifting training to just the weekends, since I know I can wake up early enough to get the training in.
