    I see where you come from. But imo you should work on that guard I think this is the main reason you do not do well against higher level fighters.

    It is hard to study defence and practice it. What worked for me after you noticed my stance is go for private boxing lessons where I learned a lot regarding stance and guarding. Have you got some legit boxing coach to try to talk to for some lessons on the basics?

    If I were you I would drop the striking classes for a bit. While they are fun and filled with spars and partnered drills which are essential I d say drop them for the sake of the health and focus purely on technique and practicing on the pads and the bag.

    Was outside today after school doing handstands, chinups and shrimps to failure pretty much. Not quite ready for that yet lol. I hate pacing myself.

    I think I might have a sinus infection or something. Eyes and head have been bugging and hurting for a few days now. Have a doctors appointment friday to get checked out.

    Update.

    I have dialed my diet in these last few months and fatty here lost some weight. From about 97kg to 92kg right now. So that's good. It's been hard because I have practicly not been able to do any high intensive exercise for a month.

    Went to the doc, got an appointment with an optometrist here in a few weeks. Been having eye issues and nausea, so they'll assess and give me some something to work with. I also got in touch with an old training partner who has his own clinic which specialises in head trauma and whiplash, so that's good. I'm following an aerobic protocol which is designed to hopefully help. I'll get some treatment from him after my vision has been assessed.

    Concussions are such a bitch, I just want to punch a fucking hole in the wall sometimes, but, what can you do...

    Did some training today:

    BIke
    20 min (80% of my tolerance of cadence and resistance before symptoms come on)

    Benchpress
    - Bar
    - 10x40kg
    - 10x60kg
    - 8x70kg
    - 5x84kg
    - 3x94kg
    - 10x60kg paused
    - 10x60kg paused

    This was a surprise for me. I've only been benching a few times with very little weight these last weeks, and before that I haven't touched the bench in I don't know how long. I don't understand how I could rep 94kg 3 times. I have not lost any strength at all. Neck felt okay. The key is relaxing my trap and occipital muscles as they are hypersensitive right now.

    Pistol box squats
    - 5xBW each leg
    - 5xBW each leg
    - 5xBW each leg
    - 5xBW each leg

    Some band work, bent over dumbbell raises and some small stuff and stretching.

    Went a little heavier today, felt much better!

    Bike:
    15-20 min (80% of my tolerance of cadence and resistance before symptoms come on)

    Benchpress
    - Bar
    - 10x50kg
    - 10x60kg
    - 5x70kg
    - 5x85kg
    - 2x95kg
    - 1x105kg
    - 1x109kg (failed, almost had it)

    Felt great! Seriously don't get how I can bench this heavy. I know it's a relatively weak bench, but my max is the same it was a year ago and I haven't touched the bench. It's weird. I have also lost 5,5kg BW in about 1½ month. Weight was 91,5kg this morning, which is great. I'll probably end at something like 88kg if I want to get somewhat lean. We'll see.

    Paused RDL
    - bar
    - 8x70kg
    - 8x90kg
    - 6-8x100kg
    - 6-8x100kg
    - 6-8x100kg

    Paused Sumo DL
    - bar
    - 8x90kg
    - 6-8x100kg
    - 6-8x100kg
    - 6-8x100kg

    Back hurt on those, recorded and couldn't see anything wrong with the technique.

    Pistol box squats
    - 5xBW each leg
    - 5xBW each leg
    - 5xBW each leg

    Tried to do a few pistols, almost there, it's mostly technical stuff. Some band work and bent over dumbbell raises

    Felt pretty good all in all. Head hurting a little bit after the DLs, neck a little iffy but not bad at all considering. A little lightheaded, but not bad again considering.

    Sup. Haven't been logging that much but been training steadily.

    Went to the optometrist and got my eyes checked. My sight is fine, but my binocular vision whenever my eyes are stressed is very poor. Probably from the concussion she said. That's why i get dizzy and nausea. Felt it a lot after having them tested like that. Fortunately, it is something that can be re-trained, but it depends on how I respond really. I have to make another appointment with another eye doc, but they can't take me before late fall.

    Anyway, went training at a real gym today with my mom and sister. That was pretty cool. Helped them out with a few things and did some training myself.

    Warmup:
    Walking for about 20 mins

    Squats:
    - bar
    - 10x60kg
    - 6x80kg
    - 5x100kg
    - 6x80kg paused

    Lol, that actually took some out of me. Haven't squatted with a barbell in a few months.

    Benchpress:
    - bar
    - 8x60kg
    - 5x80kg
    - 5x85kg
    - 4x90kg

    Felt pretty good.

    Chinups wide grip:
    - 5xBW with leg raises
    - 5xBW with leg raises
    - 5xBW with leg raises

    Been weight training and doing cardio regularly. Begun shadowboxing again pretty regularly, working on what I need to work on. Dedicating myself to one or two things that would help my game a lot and focusing on getting the repetitions in. Eyes are feeling better, head is feeling better, neck is getting better. Lost a little weight as well. It's happening steadily, was down to 90,5kg this morning, which is great.

    Training from today:

    Warmup:

    Shadowboxing

    Benchpress:
    - bar
    - 10x40kg
    - 10x50kg
    - 10x60kg
    - 5x85kg
    - 1x95kg
    - 1x104kg
    - 1x108kg

    Felt good

    Misc:
    Unilateral deadlifts with dumbbells 3x10
    Medial and posterior delt work with a plate
    Kicking and balance drills

    Been training regularly, just having fun with it. Aiming for being able to do a pistol squat on both legs, 30 second free handstand and some other stuff before summer is over. That, and getting my post concussive symptoms back to baseline. It's going well, I'm definitely feeling better. Also, I don't have access to a real gym atm, only the shitty one in the apartment complex basement, so I've just been doing a lot of dumbbell single leg work, shadowboxing, biking, BENCHPRESSING and dumbbell work for the shoulders. Besides some core exercises.

    Did a few different things today. BTW, bodyweight was 89,9kg this morning, so I finally broke 90kg! Lost 10kg BW since winter and 6kg in the last 2 months. I might actually end at like 86-87kg or something if I want to get lean. I will post some pictures when I get close lol. With that in mind, I did some benching and tried to go for a PR today!

    Warmup:
    Different warmup drills and mobility + practicing defensive boxing technique.

    Benchpress:
    - bar
    - 10x50kg
    - 5x70kg
    - 5x84kg
    - 3x94kg
    - 1x104kg
    - 1x110kg ! PR

    Baby we done it! Haha, that was pretty cool. It was a little wonky, and not paused or anything, but I'll take it. Next goal is probably hitting that weight with a pause. I'm not really chasing anything with the bench, just doing it for fun. Pretty cool how I've steadily lost weight and increased my bench.

    104kg


    110kg


    Shitty ass bench station I know lol!

    Pistol box squats:
    - 8xBW each leg
    - 8xBW each leg
    - 8xBW each leg

    Dumbell single leg squats:
    - 5xX
    - 5xX
    - 5xX

    Handstand work:
    Just practicing a little bit outside, also I did about 5 clean handstand pushups while someone was holding my legs.

    Misc:
    Dummbell work for the medial delts (shoulders need work), some ab work and core work for my back, some light stretching and work for my neck. Rehab stuff.

    Very fun session today!

    Here's a shadow vid from a few days ago btw:

    I was at a Crossfit gym (refuse to call it box) yesteday, GASP! I was there with a friend and I was basicly just teaching him some basics on the bench, and then gave him a few exercises for stabilising his ankles and knees. He's all over the place.

    Did some warmup with bosu balls and some core work.

    Bench:
    - bar
    - 10x50kg paused
    - 10x50kg paused
    - 10x60kg paused
    - 6x80kg
    - 6x80kg
    - 4x90kg

    Deadlifts:
    - 10x60kg
    - 5x80kg
    - 5x100kg
    - 5x110kg
    - 5x130kg
    - 1x150kg

    Haven't deadlifted in about 3 months, so that was interesting. I have things to do today and I am going training later again, so I didn't want to go heavier.

    Bagwork:
    Just working some combinations and power punches on a bag at the gym for about 20 min, with a lot of breaks.

    Misc:
    Band work, AMRAP pullups/chinups + dips on rings with a band, some kettlebell work for the ankles. I had a SICK pump after the workout though.

    Another session today. Went to the city hospital that I used to work at a few years ago. Met up with an old coworker and went training. They have a gym for employees there.

    Warmup was just a walk on the treadmill for 15 mins.

    Strict OHP:
    - bar
    - 8x40kg
    - 5x45kg
    - 5x50kg
    - 2x60kg
    - 1x70kg

    70kg was a GRIND lol. It was crazy, took me like 5-6 seconds of the bar moving a millimeter to get the rep, but I managed it. I haven't done any overhead work in a long time so it's fine.

    Squat:
    - bar
    - 10x60kg
    - 8x70kg
    - 8x80kg
    - 5x90kg
    - 5x100kg
    - 4x110kg
    - 8x60kg paused

    110kg was a real struggle actually. I haven't squatted either since winter pretty much, but I did 12x110kg there so it was surprising.

    I'm cutting down on my meat consumptions so I will have at least a few days a week where I don't eat any meat (I usually gorge on meat everyday) AND I'll cut dairy out for a while as well.

    Had some fun training today.

    One of my friends is preparing for the police academy's physical fitness test. It's a sort of a shuttle run test that goes in a figure eight instead of straight back and forth, standing long jump, strict pullups from deadhang, benchpress reps and a 2400 meter run. Pretty good overall fitness test actually.

    I tried everything except the 2400 meter run. I biked instead on the sidelines on that one lol.

    It was great being outside and having fun with training. I never do stuff like that, so I have forgotten how competitive I can be. I did a lot of handstand fooling around as well and some single leg work.

    Anyway, I tried the "figure eight" run just once, and had a mediocre time that would have given me a score of 4 (the scores are -3, 00, 02, 4, 7, 10, 12). I think I could do better with another try.

    Standing Longjump, I had a few tries and my best was 2,45 m equaling a 10, few cms short of 12.

    Benchpress I did 11x82kg which is a REP PR, I'm quite sure. Gave a 10. If I had done 12x80kg or 10x84kg I would have gotten a 12, so it's there.

    Strict deadhang pullups I did 11 on a thick bar, which gave the score 10.

    So all in all went pretty well. It was actually very fun! It was sunny out too so that was great. The longjump really got me going, would be cool to practice a few of these things more. I really wanna try out track and field.

    Here's a majestic picture from the handstand practice:

    What are you goals? Are you trying to compete in MMA or are you just doing that on the side for fun?

    At this moment getting healthy. I've suffered two concussions in the last year from hard sparring and I'm dealing with a lot of shit from it. I think whatever ambitions I had with MMA is done.

    I will still keep training and improving my skills, but I'm done with head trauma.

    Well that makes it easy, just keep doing what you're doing.

    Although, watching your training videos I can say with confidence that at your experience level, if your gym is having you do hard sparring rounds then you should consider finding a new school. The one video I watched of you sparring looked very light, is that how your sessions at that gym usually go?

    I've trained MMA for some years now. Started at like 22, tore my ACL, was out for 4-5 years, came back and been training a little on and off. I did MT at 16 for about a year and had a fight, and I boxed about 6 months and had a fight while my ACL was torn. I've always been in sparring wars with the pros getting my ass kicked, and I've sparred some tough and high level pros, including some UFC guys. I never had the discipline, skills or conditioning to be sparring those guys, but that wasn't my style.

    My style was good chin, pressure, push them back and eat punches pretty much. That's why I am dealing with the things I am now. Just turned 29 btw.

    I don't know what videos you are referring to, but I don't have any hard sessions on here. The only videos I have is with guys I can bully a little bit, and I don't spar hard with guys I can beat.
