For all of you, who want to follow the training of the best fighter on globalmma.

Today I worked on my sprawls and then rolled but the only way to submit is by rear naked choke. So far i'm two pounds, in my quest to drop to 200 pounds. Making me weight in at 228.




P.S. the best fighter on globalmma is not the best spellier on golbalmma.

Did you mean that in your grapple today you could only be subbed by rear naked? Sounds interesting...do you do that often?

And yes, your spelling is a disgrace!

Yeah only way, you can sub someone is by rear naked. It just helps me get the back. If I'm having a problem with armbars I only try working for the armbar.

Thats a very good idea...I need to do it for almost every move at the moment.

the armbar is a black belt move, gman. its good to try it alot to perfect that black belt move. read fabiano iha's interview on our main page: www.globalMMA.com .he explains it very well.

however you should try some of the moves that a lower level person would perfect faster, like chokes and control. even learning just defense. alot of times that is vital, no offense tires the other person out cause they constantly try. all you have to do is work off of it, wich can be minimal for you to do, so do that..... wait for the right time, and then sink in a choke or try just getting them that tired so they are completely done with.

food for thought

Yeah right now i should be working on my leg submissions and defence of legs submissions.The armbar was the second submission I learned, the first being they key lock from mount. I don't do any gi works, or have a belt. I just take a freestyle grappling class twice a week and then go to two open mats twice week.Another things i need to improve on are my wrestling skills, but i was doing that on monday.

Ice it up and give it a couple of days rest...will piss you off to sit still for 2-3 days, but is better than going back too soon and doing further damage and being out for longer

Did some bag work. Worked on some wrestling movements and then did some mount escapes. Then did a 15 minute grappling match. Last the entire time. I can tell I'm must be getting betting on my cardio. When i first started training i could barely last 5 minutes. So in total i did 2 and a half hours. I also landed a sweet knee bar, that I've been working on. Man, I have a broke thumb and a split lip from training and, I ****ing loved it.

5 pounds is only one decent turd G Man...it will go as easy as it came. Keep working hard and you will see the results, don't worry about the scales too much. Muscle weighs more than fat so if you feel stronger, look harder etc, don't let a number on the scales bother you too much

It just that I have a beer gut and, only a two pack. I may sound like a woman but I feel like **** when I look at my self. I love it after a rugby season when I'm thinner. But I got to college and gained my my 15 pounds for my first year and I don't like it. I've been training more and eating better, I just don't get it.

Your young and your body is still developing. Don't let it get to you too much G, all you can do is eat smart, train hard. Stay off the Beers for a while also, it may make a difference

Worked alot of the clinch today. Today we had a new guy come in and I worked with him. Well anyways within 5 mintues he was breathing hard and barely had any cardio. Then i start thinking how i wasn't even tired at all. That guy was just like me when i started. It made me think about how far I've come.
