Firstly I would like to say sorry for not posting a blog in a while, turns out bloging is quite low on the old “to do list” but hopefully I’m back.
So what’s new with me, well I now have two kids (hence the lack of blogs) charley grace is the new addition to the Rodgers clan, and she is doing great.
I haven’t managed to train half as much as I would have liked over the last 6 months, but I haven’t been totally lazy. I have been a regular at the forges Tuesday night mma class, where I have been developing Anderson Silva like striking techniques, And the saturday open mat has given me chance to realise I wasnt getting enough bin in my diet.
With that I have totally re-thought my training regeme, gone are the massive lifts in the gym, gone is the half arsed effort on the mats.
So to this week,
I have made the effort to try and train as much as possible
Tuesdays mma was a study in range and closing distance.
Wednesday bjj I worked my closed guard (something I really need to work on in future) we are lucky to have not only a bjj black belt in john goldson but also a group of great guys to train with.
Thursday a little no gi sparing with chaz, Dan, aiden and Pete. Followed by an awesome wrestling lesson by Sam. Turns out I am quite good at suplexing people, Sam worked us hard and we all developed good bridging skills and the confidence to trust in the arch when throwing.
Tonight is another 2 hours sparing then that’s the week done for me, tomorrow is john goldsons 2nd big class and I will wish everyone a good session as I won’t be there.
Thanks for reading my scrawled thoughts and remember…. Keep watching the stars.
