    Learned the Cow Catcher, as well as a neck crank and a choke from the position. I was able to hit it twice while rolling, which was cool considering I just learned it. A new toy. I rolled pretty well today, winning three matches by armlock, one by Cow Catcher choke, and one by kimura.

    Monday
    Competitive Edge Combat
    Strength
    Farmer Walk: 6X distances ranging from 2 feet to six feet with 310 lb. tire with pipes
    Clean and Jerk: 4X8 with 135
    SOHP: 6X6 with 145 (50 lbs in Lifting Chains) (45 seconds to 2 minute rest)
    Hex Bar Deadlift: 1X5 with 230, then singles with 280, 320, 340, 370, 410, 430, 460, 480
    Endurance
    15 minutes on stairmaster

    The Farmer Walks were ridiculous. Carrying a tractor tire with unsecured 1.5 inch thick metal pipe for grips is tricky. I think one of us managed to carry it for five seconds. The rest of our attempts were a little more pathetic. We'll have to do it again.

    We learned the Russian Tie Up. From there, we learned the transition to high crotch, body lock, and Clint Ribbon. Cool stuff, but I'll definitely need to practice. Also, I attempted to work on some Butterfly Guard. I had a minute amount of success with it, but I guess I should be happy with even a little success since it was my first time trying it. Overall, a miserable day on the mat. I got tooled by pretty much everybody. Not sure what I was doing wrong, but I guess these days happen.

    We reviewed the leg lock from halfguard, and calf slicer from the same position. We did some timed rounds today, and then just did open mat. I probably won a couple matches on what would have amounted to a "points" win. I won two by straight arm lock, and two by heel hook. I lost one by heel hook.

    Screw keeping track of my nutrition. I've had a rough week at work and eaten shitty. No sense logging my failure. Motivation for eating and training is sort of low.

    I had a good day rolling. Positioning was solid and won a lot of matches. Point of interest: When working the N/S choke, slide my body all the way back.

    NOGI Open Mat
    I worked with a bunch of new people today. It's fun to be able to pick a submission you are going to get each time you start rolling. I did my part as teacher, though, and helped them work on positioning and to maintain a positive attitude. (excluding newbies) I won matches by armbar from guard, toe fold, crucifix neck crank, and ?. I lost matches by guillotine, kimura, and heel hook.

    Immunity Boost
    First day feeling 85% since Saturday. Perfect time for a light, yet thorough immunity boost workout. Nothing worth charting.

    Clint taught moves when you are in front headlock. He taught short drag, sit out, short drag/sit out combo, and then taught the moves from standing. Good stuff. I had a good day on the mat. I won against a guy I've never beat two times in a row by armbar. I won other matches by americana, straight arm lock, and armbarX3. I lost by north/south choke, and what I'm calling the "movie kill" neck break.
