Raven78's on the set of the Living Dead

Fitbit resting HR… so it’s a good guide on how you’re faring day to day. I’m keen to see it drop back into the 50’s… From my understanding with more conditioning, your heart can pump more ‘per beat’ thus less beats per minute required to move the same volume of blood around the body.

I find mine sneaks up when you need more recovery too, etc.

Nothing to do with current activity levels as my HR would be in the 80-130+ range at the gym pending activity level.

29.06.2024 (6pm evening session)

BJJ 1hr, training (beginners class).

Building on double leg shots, single leg takedowns from the outside.

Good rolls thereafter, nailed a few good submissions, copped a few also. Nailed my first flower sweep during a roll too @burien_top_team . Muscle memory kicking in, and improving my rolling technique re going more at 70% for most of the time, then hit 100% for brief peaks. Many sore spots and fresh bruises… it’s good to be back on the mats.

BJJ 1hr, training (al levels class).

Butterfly guard using leg hooks to lift/sweep - struggling with this but also against larger opponents.

Rolled three times, held my own in 2 of them against similar level opponents but tapped a few times against J, he’s stronger, taller, larger, younger!

Knee bruises and sore neck atm, part and parcel of the fun of bjj…

Post last BJJ session, suffered delayed neck and back pain. Cue a chiro, massage, and rest. On the mend now, so enjoying some R&R whilst also on holidays. Will catchup on other logs in coming days.

Just a quick check-in to see how that holiday healing is coming along. Hope all is well!

It’s a life deload… I just had some major dental work done and am out for 1-2 weeks, so you are not alone! It’s gonna make us stronger in the long run, though, right?

I hope you’re feeling better and kill that new job tomorrow!!!
