Doing them with plates is a great alternative to KB. You can also do them with DBs but it can get a little awkward with both hands on the handle.

I lost track of time at work and didn't get a chance to lift yesterday.
I did 3 hours of MMA and tweaked my back a little grappling one of the instructors. I did get two sweet moves on him but I just couldn't tap him. I was going to workout today but my back is still not right and I have a competition this weekend so I don't want to jeopardize that. I'll try and workout tomorrow and see what happens.

Wednesday's Workout


Used a 60lbs. kettlebell. Each exercise I did was for time, 1 minute and I rested for 1 minute inbetween circuits, 5 circuits in all.


One arm swings
Snatches
Clean and press
Lunges The kettlebell is extended over my head the whole time for 30 seconds and then I switch to the other hand for 30 more seconds.

After that I did these:
Turkish get-ups: 3x5 each arm
Windmills: 3x5 each arm
Kettlebell Halo: 3x5 in each direction.

OVERVIEW
Back feels a lot better. The windmills just seemed harder this time around. I have grapping Thursday and Friday I'm cutting weight and going for 204. Right now I stand at 207 so 3 lbs. is nothing.

Cool Competition time.

Well I went to my competition in Richmond, Va on the 28th and it was a blast. Some ups, some downs and some funny stuff.

I weighed in at 203lbs. for the competition after only doing one day of sweating it out, I did weigh 207lbs.
For my No-Gi submission grappling division I placed 1st.
.

I had to go through 3 guys and it was definitely a test of endurance. Right before my first match my coach told me to fake him out a little and change the level of my stance to fake a shoot in for a take down. So I was like yeah that a great idea. So I shake hands with this guy and started mess' in with his head. I then go to fake the shoot and I get a thumb in my eye. Stops me dead in my tracks and they had to stop the match so I could compose myself. After a minute or two I was ok and pissed. So I take him down and slammed in an arm bar hard on him. I didn't mean it to be that hard but I was just a little mad.
When I saw the second guy I would face grapple I thought to myself, This guy is my Everest. If I beat him I'll win. Low and behold he was my hardest guy. I won by points 6 to 0. Right after I beat this guy another station in on the mats called my name and said I was up in another division for Gi. I go over and was like, I'm in the finals and I can't jump back and forth like this. Can you guys wait till I'm done." The judge at the table was a little moody but said No problem we have another division we are working in at the same time. SOOooo... My last guy wasn't that hard but just as strong as the other guy. We were both a little gassed but he was much more tired than I was and when I swept him and got mount all I could hear is him lose all his air and what was once a strong guy turned into jell. I pretty much just made his life hell for the last 30 seconds. Won 6 to 0 on that one too.

After a little celebration I ran over to the other mat area and put on my Gi and had 10 mins to recoup, the judge said she would run one more match so I could catch my breath. The Guy I went up in Gi was a guy who got dominated in my no-gi division so I was like I go this guy. He pulls guard and I try to break out but he was deceptively stronger than he looked and I wasn't able to do it the first time. Then I remembered a move I learned a week ago and saw an opportunity to try it and wouldn't you know it worked to a T and everybody that was in my school was yelling, "HELL YEAH DAVE!" After that I was so excited about pulling off the move, I didn't pay attention to the amount of time I was suppose to hold every position so I could get points. Needless to say the score would have been about 9 to 0 but since I was soooo excited about the move I went through about 3 positions in 4 seconds, to score points on positions you have to hold one position for 3 seconds to get the points. So, the last position I get was mount and I was way too high and the guy bumped me off and tried to take my back. I defended it well but he grabbed my Gi for a chock but was over my face and not around my throat. I tried to move and break his grip but he was holding on for dear life and had only 1 match so far where I had 3 already. I went to try and move out and explode up but in doing that the Gi moved under my chin and he sunk in the choke.

So I wasn't able to place but like all of my competitions I learned a lot about what I can to and that I need to stay focused throughout the match so I don't F' up on points again. Another thing is my strength and conditioning training was good but I think I'm might work on it a little more. Next time I'm going to fight in 3 divisions so I will need it.
