    Not bad, particularly on the DL's. I also worked on better cleans with the axle. I had planned on broad jumps for this day, but there simply isn't enough room in the new gym for them. Went to coach wrestling afterwards. Won our home meet pretty convincingly. Still had a lot of mistakes to work on. Gi and no Gi today.
    Weight is going down again after the holidays, 190.4 Thursday after rolling.

    Weighed out today at 188.4. Today was a cheat day and had BBQ chicken and ribs with fries and iced tea. Feeling good and actually moving well. Found out that our instructor at the home gym basically said I'm testing for blue in may. I don't know? I still don't have all this gi stuff down and I don't think he knows I only have one stripe. We shall see. I feel like I'm only one good bump in the head away from wearing a helmet and riding the short bus to school when I'm wearing the Gi.

    Not bad at all. Squats and DL's still climbing well even though the bodyweight is coming down. Had a home match tonight and beat a local ri-val tonight on criterion, and we did it with two starters out with Ringworm. Gi tomorrow and Friday I'm going to try and get to wrestling practice and actually workout instead of just coach. I may try and hit upper body tomorrow also so i am off Friday to get to practice.

    Conditioning is going well. Finally hit a wall on bench. I got 12 full cycles in so I consider it a success to get that far. I think it is mostly due to the weight cut, so I'm pretty happy. I didn't seem to fall off too much just more a case of progress halting. I am resetting my maxes on both bench and OHP and starting over. Squat and DL are still going strong so I'm sticking with the current progressions. Gi tonight. Anxious to see what my weight is.

    Going to miss grappling tonight because of snow. I wanted to go but the wife was complaining. Missing is gonna hurt. I was right on target to make weight, but now I'll have to adjust. Sucks. Roads aren't even that bad.

    Decent workout. I'm switching up military to using the minis. I've had good success with it in the past. I missed practice on Saturday again thanks to a foot of snow. DL tomorrow and also Gi practice. I may even try to get over for another roll on Thursday, we'll have to see.

  19. Grappling tournament report:

    UGC in Hamburg PA

    Weighed in at 179.0 but got bumped up to 180-190lbs anyways. They did no gi first which was unusual. First match was a real good grappler/wrestler that I've seen before. He was a purple belt. I pulled guard and had a sunset drop sweep, but it ended in a scramble and I didn't get any points out of it. I thought I should have at least gotten an advantage since I ended on top. I secured an arm and trapped it behind his back but could not get his guard open for like two minutes. They stood us up again and he shot just as I pulled guard so I was down 2-0 on the takedown. I eventually got to half guard lockdown and tried to secure old school. I got close a few times but couldn't get it, so I changed to dogfight, limp-armed, beat his granby and got the sweep. We got into another scramble after I left an arm out, like a dummy, and I ended up with a north south choke on him. It didn't tap him but took enough out of him to allow me to do a funky step over straight into mount for 4 and a 6-2 win.
    Second match was a Renzo Gracie guy, I was told he was a pretty good brown belt. I took a shot and after some whizzer and hip to hip fighting he pulled guard but I was deep enough I got 2. We got into half guard with a knee shield and I sat back to an achilles lock. I had it tight and I could have sworn it was gonna go, but it didn't and after a scramble he got side mount. Down 3-2. I got to lockdown and tried for old school but he was so tall it wouldn't go. I switched to dogfight again and after another hip to hip fight i sat him down for a sweep, up 4-3. I then passed him with a butterfly pass. He got guard back while I was looking for mount, up 7-3. I should have stalled it out and won, but being hardheaded I wanted 1 more pass before I finished and i got caught pulling and arm for a double under sweep. He caught the armbar and I tapped. Truth be told if I had been in better shape I know I would have beaten him, he was cooked. 2nd place 170-190 advanced.
    Gi I was in white belt. I pulled guard and had a quick sweep. I then had a butterfly pass but only got to half guard so I switched to instep pass and hit the side, up 5-0. I went for mount, but got hipped over by surprise. I was able to pull his arm across by the sleeve as we went over and we ended up in gift wrap position. I was going to try the gift-wrap sweep, but as I turned for it he pushed his arm away from his body and I hipped a leg over for arm bar. I popped my head and gave his sleeve a tug and he tapped pretty quickly. In the finals I rolled with a team mate. and we went relatively easy. 1st place Gi white belt.
    I will get in a little better shape for the next one and I need to be a little stronger (in terms of muscular endurance) for these new weight divisions. I was still stronger than any of my opponents, but it wasn't by as wide a margin as I was used to. Having to cut weight and also missing those last two practices definitely hurt a little. I'd really like to get in good form and roll with that brown belt again.
    I am super sore, to the point I am hobbled a little, so I probably won't do anything until like Wednesday.

    Tough workout. I got major sick Tuesday, I even had to leave work and I didn't go back until yesterday. I lost 8lbs in 36 hours. Sucked big time. I got a set of battle rope at the tournament and I'm going to start using them instead of sprints on upper days. Ho[efully in the summer I can get to swinging a sledge every other workout. I added chins back in and I'm going to slow walk them as long as the shoulder is feeling good. I miss my chins.

    Mediocre at best. I knew it would be. I lost a full notch on my belt, maybe a little more and it showed in the squats. Not too worried but hopefully get some back. I'm back on my eating plan as of today. I'm going to up protein to 250 or so a day and keep carbs about the same, hopefully this will help. I also started glutamine Friday, 15-20 grams on workout days, 10 grams on non-workout days. My plan is to try and ramp up assistance work a fair bit these next two cycles so I have a good base for this spring, then
    make a solid push on my main 4 for the late spring and early summer. I'd still like to make my yearly goals even with a drop in BW of 8-10 lbs. I think it is doable if I can monitor my food intake properly and I don't end up working myself to death this summer. If I can ride at a slightly lower body fat I should be able carry close to the same LBM as this fall. Bodyweight after being sick and making weight last weekend was a very flat 184 on Saturday.

    Not too bad. I've added in more calories, about 500 or so a day, about half protein, half carbs, see if it does the trick for some lean strength and a tad bit of BW. Venison marinaded in Guinness. Adding a tad of volume on two workouts. Band pushdowns on bench and band GM's on DL day. Hoping to up the assistance a tad over the next two cycles. Also contemplating my first run of chemical enhancements, not sure yet though. If I do it won't be until I get a lot closer to some of my old PR's. We'll see. I am going to get some blood work done in a few weeks. I'm curious to see how all the years of serious weight cutting and maintaining low body-fat for sustained time has affected my test levels. I keep seeing all these old wrestlers and advanced age fighters with slightly messed up HPTA systems so I'm curious. I cut for basically 10 years with time off only after events, and I guess technically I'm now middle aged.
