Just cut out carbs. No sugar, no pasta, no bread. If you can do that, then target 15g a day total and you’ll slim down. 

Oh man....that's gonna be hard lol

I'm a huge believer in the laws of thermodynamics when it comes to weight loss. (Calories Consumed < Calories Burned).

 

On a side note: @misteravenif you're planning on taking BJJ, I'd suggest cardio, and strengthening your core in preparation at a bare minimum. Obviously I should be doing the same in preparation to move to altitude and don the white belt no stripes myself, but I'm not, lol.

@misteraveni'm fully on board with that suggestion. I'll share pics of the juicer i got on amazon, later.

 

@Mercercore exercises are key. I've been doing laps of lunges, heavy deadlifts, kettle bell swings, hanging leg lifts, rows for back

 

shit's not easy. imagine doing all that work and still tap out on the mat. gets me angry all the time

Similar to @fat ralphymy recent Jiu jitsu journey has been filled with god trying to stop me from going. I’m finally back in the weights and bjj but not full bore on either. Probably going to do 2 days weights 2 days bjj. 
 

While I was unable to work out I kept eating as though I was going hard though, so I went from 190 to 215 pretty quickly. Getting my diet back in check as we speak. 
 

focussing on survival with higher belts and guard retention with guys I can handle. Been giving up my back on purpose and shutting people down as much as I can. I’ve survived all 7 minutes (minus the time it took to get to my back) with my back taken. Still working on my escape, but I think it’s going to click pretty soon here. 
 

 

WELCOME BACK!!!

It seems like eating is all of our problems

I'm 5'6"- 5'7" and ive hit the weights pretty hard. Problem is, i started eating 3000 calories a day

I went from 155 to 180 within 2 months.

Since i'm not as big as the other jiujiteiro out there, i tend to focus more on movement and dynamic passes

 

what do you guys focus on? @iloveboxcars@Mercer@fat ralphy

 

I try to copy Kron Gracie and Otavio Sousa, the Miyao brothers, and other nimble fighters

 

@misteravenHave you ever done bear crawls, frog hops, or any other core based exercises involving moving from one side of the room to another?

@glorydaysMy game is fundamentals primarily. I tend to use a lot of open guard, De La Riva, arm drag, back takes- obviously I prefer top game and smash. I get a lot of bow and arrow, straight arm bar, Americana and Ezekiels. 

 

Our instructor is a Carlos Gracie Jr black belt who taught at Gracie Barra for 15 years prior to coming to the USA. We are really geared towards fundamental BJJ.

You're a big dude, so i cant work with the tools you have...i compensate with quickness and agility

passing guard is literally me scrambling or swinging from form to form

What I work on depends on who I'm rolling with.

 

People that are better than me - I fight for top and from there keep spamming different sub attempts until I fuck up just enough that they sweep me. Then I try to get to a position where I can shoot for a kimura. I just really like finding kimuras right now. Finding one but not being able to complete it with these guys (as expected) I consider a win for myself

 

People that are at sort of the same level as me - It's actually surprising how flow-rolly me and 3 other guys are. We all started close enough together, and we laugh through out the entire roll generally, just doing dumb shit to each other, but keeping it competitive. We aren't giving anything away but we also aren't holding on for dear life usually.

 

People that are worse than me - Guard retention and sweeps, but after I sweep i try to work my way back to bottom, and then I do the triangle bait for armbar bait for omoplata and the reverse until I lock something down.

 

With people that are much smaller than me I try to match their strength and focus on technique.

I've been finding myself going for underhooks when I get close enough.

Underhooks with bolos at the ankle to disrupt bases

 

Kimura are great because they're so easy to implement.

 

I tend to take myself too seriously while rolling. Apparently I have resting bitch face.

This works often enough for me, you can also use it to sweep them if they are aware enough to do a front roll before you lock it down.

I believe A framing give full access to the collar....i believe collar control is good for beginners wanting to submit their opponent early

It also teaches the concept of leverage and shoulder control

 

Theres the fear of telegraphing your movements in the video you shared

A purple belt at my gym is built like stretch armstrong and he uses a lot of keenan's material. All that lapel black magic shit. That first choke is interesting that they show, gives me an option to try when someone is just laying there in side control.

It exploits the trust that your opponent has on a dominant position

like they said in the video, noone in their right mind would attempt a collar choke from bottom position because of the risk of giving up your back

yeah, when I do it I usually put a lot of weight on their leg and squeeze my thighs together so they cant get their knee through.

so you would clamp their leg, then squirm dragging their arm in a kimura...bro that would be a miracle scramble

oh wait no we arent. hold on

 

 

when you grab the kimura you already are squeezing your legs together, then you adjust to get under them but it usually doesn't take as long as they are depicting there. I usually just do a 90 degree turn so I get from off my side and onto my back and their hand is already behind their hips and their base is lost, so they are generally resting their chest on mine.

that makes more sense...gripping the arm in a kimura then just basically turning 90 degrees

BAM, you got leverage and shoulder control

 

I can see why you like the kimura alot...its fucking effective
