Continuing the Grind

Squats and Deadlift are still where they are, making progress on my bench press is incredibly difficult. I cut 10lbs to go out to Las Vegas for Master/Senior Worlds and I haven't gained any of it back.

I lost in the first round, had a great time, won a poker tournament at the Mirage the next day and met a lot of cool people, but my game plan was wrong for my weightclass. I'm too focused on trying to keep things standing and looking for my Tomoe Nage or the single leg when my opponents are all eager to pull guard. That cost me a chance to actually do jiujitsu at the last few tournaments, so I'm going to have to go back to the drawing board and figure out what I want the first 20 seconds of my matches to look like.

Aside from that, I've been putting in work as much as I can in class and I picked up another stripe last week. The progress is slow, but it is there.

I might even start updating regularly again here since I'm about to start reworking my focus and I'll want to get some of my thoughts down in written form.
