Default Grappling tournament coming soon and...

..need to lose a little more weight.

Ok It was suggested to me, (I was told), that I should Grapple in the 205lbs weight class. So what does this mean. I have to lose an additional 6 or so pounds for next week. So, and I don't like doing this because I don't want to be in jeopardy of losing muscle. Next week I'm dropping 350-450 cals. and adding 5 mins to every cardio session. After that I will start incorporating a carb up day since my cal. intake will be below 2700. My competition weigh-ins are 8:00am so Next Friday night I'll be in a sauna cutting water weight.

OVERVIEW
AAAAAHHHHHH!!!
Well my numbers suck monkey balls. This is the reason why.

Last night at MMA I did just about 2 hours of arm lock drills, 4 different types, and arm drag drills, which means people yank on your arms to try and get you off balance. I go into the gym today and I feel fine. Actually, my back was sore and I thought that squats and rows were going to kill me. Well squats were great and everything was find and dandy until my second set of rows. That is when I started to feel a strain in both elbows. Started to do pull downs and it got worse. By the time I got to direct arm movements I was practically in tears trying to get the weight up. Well I didn't finish as I wanted to but I did what I could under the conditions.

Next week starts 12's, 300 less cals. and 5 mins added to each cardio session.

Man that's tough. I guess as you get heavy into this and start competing there'll hardly be a time when you're not working with some type of injury.

Good luck on dropping those pounds and on your grappling tourney.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Thanks man. I was very over stretched from the previous night. Man when they say over stretching weakens you, they weren't kidding.

Right now I'm at about 211, so I'm doing good. I will most definitely make weight, especially if I have a week or so to do it and a sauna.

I could be wrong but I think your sometimes better off dropping a few pounds to fight in a lower weight then the opposite.

Oh most definitely. Initially I was told there was a 200-210lbs. class and a 211-222lbs. class. So I figured that I'll stay the course and be at 210lbs. Then when I go to pre register I find out the classes are 190-204.9lbs. and 205-220lbs. There is no way I'm going against a 220lbs. guy who is probably thinking the same thing I am, cut down to the max of that class. So me being at 214ish, at the time of registering, I have to go down. I should be good. Plus I know I'm pretty strong and I've heard some grapplers don't weight train at all. So I'm using that to my advantage.

Man was Monday great. Going down in reps and weight was like a mini Deload. The weight will always increase for the big movements. So I'm staying on track with that.
As for Weight I'm 210lbs. upon waking up. I can't weight to compete so I can get back to losing weight slower and not fear losing muscle. As always I'll keep you guys posted.

Well my weight is coming off nicely and I will definitely make 205lbs. weight class for my competition. On Friday I'm going to change things up and workout in the morning and at night do about a 45 mins of light jogging in 3 layers of cloths and some sweats. After that spend 30-60 mins in the steam room and see how much water I've cut out. On Friday I'll stop eating right before my cardio and it will only be about 300 cals. and will eat nothing till after weigh-in Saturday morning at 8:00am. After that it's weight gainer and Pure Vitargo. Talk about your carb. up.

Well cutting weight sucks balls. Never had to do it before and it was not fun. well I take that back it wasn't that bad with all the layers of cloths on, it was all the layers of cloths on when I was in the steam room for 20 mins. now that sucked I thought I was going to go crazy. It was just me and my thoughts about the competition. Well now on to the competition.

Default The Competition

So I get maybe 6 hours of sleep because it is my first competition in grappling and I keep going over my game plan. The weight class I'm going for is technically 204.9 lbs. and I wake up at.... 205.5. Well looks like I'm not eating or drinking anything till 8:00 am. So I pick up one of my boys at my dojo and it's an hour drive to the place so I think that's plenty of time to cut.

Get there and wait in line to get weighed in and I come to find out that the weight classes are different for Gi and No-Gi, (for those who don't know a Gi is the uniform martial artists wear). No-Gi cut off is 204.9 and Gi is 201.9. MOTHER F!@#$er. fine what ever the next weight class cut off for Gi was 213.9. So I get on the scale and I come up at....... 203.8lbs. the guy looks at me and says, "Do you want to cut any more for the other division?" At this time I'm soooo tired and frustrated that I said, "No I'm done cutting." So I start POUNDING Gatorade, I drank 40 oz. in less than 1 minute. It never tasted sooooo good. Then we go off and get some breakfast and I eat this big steak and egg sandwich and a bagel with cream cheese.

I get back to the place and are awaiting the schedule for the matches. Now They do the kids and woman's first which I can understand, but then I come to find out that they are doing the Advanced Men's first and all the Beginners are last. Why would you put the new guys last and the more technical guys first. It just didn't' make sense to me. It's like doing the main event first and the warm up bands last. So I get there at 8:00 and I don't go until 3:30 ish. So the whole time there I'm nervous and trying to enjoy myself at the same time.

Fast forward to my matches. First was No-Gi grappling and I come to find out that one of my friends in my school is in my division. Then I find out that the retards that did the brackets are going to put us against each other in the second round and didn't put us on opposite sides of the brackets.
We find this out right after we both tell one of our teachers our game plans in front of each other thinking that, best case scenario we meet each other in the finals. Well, this just took all the wind out of my sails. Needless to say I got a Kimura on him and it was tight and then right about when I realized that his elbow was just about touching his shoulder I remember that he is one of the most flexible guys I know and he wasn't tapping. Well I wasted almost a minute holding this lock and the round was only 4 mins long. so I didn't win the match and the score was 3 - 6.

So I'm bummed and he ended up getting 3rd so I was happy for him but at the same time pissed that my first match was against a guy from my school.

So on to Gi grappling. Well here is where I kicked ass. I got first place and the last match was 20 - 3. I was all over this guy and my Judo training came in very handy. I was very gassed out after my first match but recovered fairly quickly. I also tried getting some locks but the guys were too strong and I was too tired. At the end my arms were dead. I could barely hold my drink.
All and all it was awesome and I got to stay and see some Kickboxing and MMA fights at the end.
I cant' wait to compete again.
