  3. I do, but I struggle with form on the way down. It is kind of hard to keep my elbows in and flaring them out is almost done by nature. I have to concentrate more, but they are sexy indeed.

  4. Im thinkin about doing them at the end of my bi workout next time. Is this a new exercise for you? Or have you been doing them and I havent noticed?

    It's a normal DB curl for the first half of the movement. The second half of the movement you rotate your wrists before descending so it looks like a reverse curl.

  8. Dude I haven't listened to Manson in forever. Thanks for the nostalgia!

    I've never liked them really - just don't hit any single part of the hard enough in my opinion. But, they are simpler than doing both DB Curls and Reverse Curls...

  13. Workout #10: BJJ 3/10/09


    We worked on open guard drills the whole time. Nothing much to note, I passed guards for the most part and only got my guard passed once. I did pull off a couple of triangles and omoplatas. It seems those will be my signature moves as I progress in BJJ.

    Not so much today. I felt weak and had to bring down the weight on bench.

    Not so much.
    Mood Enhancement
    Feeling pretty good.

    Lats are really starting to pop out now that my waist is slimmer. Starting to look much more vascular.

  15. Workout #12: BJJ 3/12/09


    We worked on closed guard drills the whole time. I got there late so I only got two partners to work with. Again, I hit some triangles and omoplatas, I did surprisingly well against another blue who is much stronger and heavier than me. I usually don't do well with bigger dudes. So that was a plus. Since I was late, I stayed longer to work some stuff with my soon to be roommate. We worked on jumping into guard (because we both are not confident in our take downs) for the tournament. We also worked triangle and omoplata escapes. My reaction times are seeming to get faster and faster. A very good thing.

  17. Thanks Met.

    I just bought 11.5 pounds of boneless/skinless chicken breast. w00t w00t

    Supplement Update:


    Fish Oil is going up from 8 grams to 15 grams. 5 grams with three meals. Knees feeling a little funky, and since I don't have money for osteosport, this'll have to do,.

  18. Interested too see what upping the fishies will do

    Interesting quote for you that may help:

    The whole article is great,I only posted the end of it.

    http://www.mmafaestro.com/Blog/post/...-Paradigm.aspx

    The Training Paradigm
    by KevinHowell


    "As a parting gift, let me leave you all with something that Andre Galvao imparted on me while we were training before last year's BJJ World Championships and Pan-Americans. Basically, Andre laid me down and told me to pull any guard.

    As soon as I made contact, he would pass and I would have to turn away from him to turtle. This was a part of our drill. He would then immediately, take the back position and lock in a choke - this happened EVERY SINGLE TIME! We repeated this drill non stop for about an hour. My only job was to come up with a new guard and hold it, get passed, and then show my back when Andre passed.

    Afterwards, (we were both exhausted by the pace) I asked Andre why he trained this way. He answered that he once saw his instructor Terere, do the same drill over and over for about 3 weeks as he prepared for a tournament - passing the guard (the same way every time) to the back to the choke.

    He didn't spar like crazy, but he did spar lightly as a warmup. Once warm, he would just do this over and over with varying levels of resistance while the rest of the class sparred and fought. When the tournament came around, guess what? Terere, immediately passed everyone's guard, took the back, and finished with a choke. It was second nature.

    Hard to say really... I didn't get my entire squat set, but I did well on other exercises.

  24. Workout #14: Fasted Cardio 3/14/09


    We did 10 hundred meter sprints around a track (walked the turns).

    Bleacher work was a little harder this time. We ran up and down steps back and forth, then double leg hop back and forth, then ran up and down steps back and forth again, and all this concurrently to tax my cardio a little more.

    As you can imagine this workout was very difficult due to my amazing DOMS from the previous squat session.

    One more for ya:

    Three Rules for the Open Guard

    My instructor David Ruiz (a Rigan Machado Black Belt) in Denver has 3 rules that he teaches that really changed the guard game for me, and specifically the open guard game.

    Always maintain a maximum of 90 degrees between your torso and your thighs. It can be less (i.e. knees pulled tighter into your chest) but it can never be more than 90. For example if you opponent goes for a bull fighter style pass by pulling/pushing your legs to one side, you must sit up to maintain your 90 degrees.
    Always maintain foot controls on either side of your opponents body (e.g. a foot on either side of the hips, on his shoulders, spidered around one arm & one hip, legs X'd on either hip, etc.).
    Knees always bowed/flared out. This makes passing around the guard much more difficult and leaves the best option for the opponent to pass through the center where your arms and grips can come into play more effectively.
    I find when someone passes my guard, inevitably, I have broken one of these 3 rules.
