Sparred at BJJ class today for the first time ever.

With a white belt, blue belt and brown belt.

Got my ass kicked even by a sexy leopard elevator half my size. Super strong and good technique. Wow... this is fucking amazing. And the workout is awesome!

I literally walk out of that place happier than I have ever been. The only thing I can compare it to is roller derby reffing the world cup or some amazing tournament. And this is only the beginning of an endless road..... fuck depression and anxiety, this is the best cure.

I’m not in any hurry myself but very eager to learn a lot. Wish I could train more often a week. Need to work hard and have patience.

Blue with one stripe. I feel like I'm starting to "see" more things when rolling and am trying to implement my game instead of mostly reacting to what is happening. The road is long and difficult, but oh so worth it.

Rolled with other white belts today during sparring. All of them had at least 1 year experience and the difference between them and me is still so great. I’m getting my ass handed to me but almost had one hard-on bearer in a headlock and another almost in an armbar but they escaped because I was just too tired.

I think I need to learn how to conserve my energy and strength and relax way more when I can. Still too tense all the time.

Loving every second of it even though I don’t stand a chance yet. I’m patient but also very eager to learn.

Also, somebody got their blue belt tonight which was awesome.

21 sept our professor from Brazil is coming over for a seminar and a few people will get their black belts.

Parience is definitely key. You didn't learn guitar in 6 months, this isn't much different. You'll be a spaz for a while (every white belt is) and then one day upper belts will start picking you to roll more consistently. Just wait until you get your first stripe, you'll be elated.

Took last night off but I'm gonna do some nogi tonight.

103kg x5 benchpress
122kg x5 box squarsh with another two nose picks in the tank

Strength is getting there, spaghetti quad tremors will continue to improve I expect but I'm not as confident with my benchpressing. Bodyweight hovering around 78kg.

I've basically given up on bicep work and only train shoulder with very low volume, my shoulder remains pain free.

Phewh, been doing The Bridge by Barbell Medicence a few times now, great program have to say, there's no return to 5/3/1 anymore. With The Bridge I've got my deadlift to 150kg, bench press to 120kg and squash still hover in the 120kg region. Looking to improve my squash to around 140kg and deadlift to 160kg by december, we'll see.

I prefer nogi to gi, just slightly though. It's interesting to not be able to use conventional grips.

Feeling a bit better after one week. Will take it easy tonight and see what I can and can’t do.

This Saturday our professor from Rio is coming over so I want to be able to drill and roll by then.

Won’t be rolling for another 4-6 weeks :homework:

No fracture but this needs to heal before I start drilling and sparring again. Don’t want to make it worse.

Rib injuries are the worst. Just got over one not too long ago that took about a month to heal. You can still drill light once it doesn't bother you so much. Honestly you'll learn a ton just from watching if that's all you can do for a while.

I do mix the weight training up.
And also combine it with running, hiking or mushing with the doggo in the morning. Jiu jitsu is Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays so not every day.
