Cut 4lbs of Water Weight sparring Muay Thai and BJJ

Sunday Fundays

Had a blast today sparring at Hinds Combat Sports (amazing gym, check out their schedule).

Today was my first day back on the mats for sparring day, I got lit up. I kept dropping my hands after throwing kicks and paid for it.

It was so much fun to have the adrenaline dumping again. I felt 100% confident with my left leg (MCL injured 6 months ago) and was throwing switch kicks and teeps without hesitation.

Although I did hit a few groins today (sorry fellas!), I caught a bunch of rights and hooks to my chin. Need to keep my hands up.

BJJ

By the time BJJ open mat started, my glycogen storage was almost depleted. I caught second wind and was able to squeeze in a few rounds before leaving 1/2 through.

I’m considering energy snacks and supplements between classes.

Take aways

  • Carb load before the 2X classes
  • Up cardio conditioning (biking and road work)
  • Plan meals & clean up diet
  • Weighed in at 189 lbs earlier this week, after class checked in at 185 lbs
  • Introduce stretching light yoga work into week
