Planned workouts:5-7.30am BJJ drills and sparring
Effective workoutsBJJ drills: focus on grips and nailing the weight while passing the guard, be as tight and heavy as possible, limiting opponents hip movement. Leg weave start to flow.

Comments: I had breakfast at 8am and a nap from 10-10.35am and woke up STARVED and craving PORRIDGE. The porridge sorted me out, I felt better for the rest of afternoon.
The BJJ was good as it turns up that Luke, purple belt Icon BJJ, used to do submission grappling and is really good at leg lock, knee bars and toe hold. We sparred and now I am more concentrated than ever and pay a lot of attention yo these techniques, so much attention that I got caught in a TRIANGLE...
Day 4 conclusions:
I felt tired today after training, my body starts to beg for a break. Anyway I planned not to train Friday New year day and spend the whole day with the family. To keep up with my 3yo and 1 and 1/2yo may be harder than training.
Nevertheless, the break is welcome as I will have 8 consecutive days in double-triple sessions coming my way.
