if you could somehow know, with certainly, what the fully-realized you looked, felt, and performed like, how different would that be from the current you?
This week I trained at a different grappling school and got to work on tightening up some holes in my game.
This week I switched up my normal training routine a bit to accommodate my work schedule, with good results.
This was a crazy week, but a good one as far as training goes. I'm working on my lower body submissions to prepare for the upcoming tournament.
The high-rep kettlebell work I've been doing to prepare for the Tactical Strength Challenge has lowered my overall volume, so I plan to bring it back up in coming weeks.
This was by far the best training week I’ve had this year, and it feels like my Brazilian jiu jitsu and weightlifting are coming together.
My work schedule is getting heavy, so I have to pick and choose my workout scheme carefully to make sure I maintain quality.
This week I continued focusing on my kettlebell work to prepare for the Tactical Strength Challenge. Aside from a small tweak in my shoulder, I'm feeling on track.
I felt a little slow this past week, so I’m sensing a lighter week in my near future. Overall, the press still feels good and I feel like my bent press is getting tighter.
This week we received some updates about what will be allowed at the upcoming tournament. I'm also enjoying the strength and conditioning I've added to my training.
It's an athlete's nature to never be satisfied, and that's okay. But sometimes we need to take a step back and evaluate how we gauge success and failure.
Now that competition season is in full swing, I've started to focus on tightening up my diet, strength and conditioning, bodyweight, and my overall BJJ game.
Despite a few days off, my training went well this week, with some progress in my back squat and front squat. My overall fitness also seems to be improving.
This week was packed full of fun BJJ stuff. I did a lot of coaching, learned several new techniques, and helped one of our teammates at a tournament.
Today I'll discuss two important principles that inform my training, especially in my recent programming.
After every tournament, I always evaluate my performance with my coaches. This week I analyzed what happened on the mat during the match that prevented me from executing my game plan at my last match.
I hit some pretty high volume at the beginning of this week. I continued doing the SSB squats with chains and have also started using the ab wheel on my days off.
